All of us, every day, see countless numbers; however, if you started seeing 18 very frequently and seemingly everywhere, maybe you have come to believe it’s not a coincidence but a sign or something trying to communicate with us. And you’re right.
If you keep seeing this number, it is a sign that your guardian angel is trying to communicate with you as they want to convey some important message. To know what specific message they are trying to convey, it is important to look at all the individual numbers in the number sequence you keep seeing, in this case, 1 and 8.
Angel number 18 encourages you to believe in yourself and your goals. Everything your mind can imagine can be achieved, but negative thoughts and doubts keep you away from your goals. The angels tell you through this number, “Balance your thoughts, believe that you can, and believe that you will. Success is around the corner.”
Number 1 is the number of speed, new beginnings, growth, manifestation, and planting a seed (a new idea or starting something new, much like planting a seed.) Number 8 symbolizes abundance, prosperity, career success, balance, and inner strength.
The combination of these numbers is very powerful and encourages you to stay focused on your life path and believe in achieving your (not only financial) goals because the only thing that keeps you away from your goals is your negative thoughts or doubts. Once you release this inner conflict and balance your thoughts, success will occur. Try not to worry about the outcome and let go of your fears. Be confident in who you are and what you can do.
This number clearly means that you have already started something – planted the imaginary seed (e.g., you visualized your goal, you have a clear intention and vision, you founded a company, etc.), and now it is to believe and remove from your path everything that it does you no good. It can be, for example, doubts, negative thoughts, or anything that takes away your hope or motivation to firmly pursue what you desire.
Visual representation of angel number 18
The number 8 looks like an hourglass if you imagine it in a vertical position. The upper container is already filled with sand (the number 1, which represents a new beginning or manifestation, and the bottom container is the number 8.) The process has already started, and the sand is slowly pouring into the bottom container (your desired outcome.)
If you sit by the hourglass and yell at it to make the sand go faster, it will have no effect except to make you stressed and start to doubt. And if you allow negative thoughts or people to reach and overturn the hourglass, the sand would never fall where it should, or it would take a very long time. So it is with your real life. So don’t let others take away your motivation or hope. And don’t allow yourself to start doubting or losing hope, either. Everything has its time, and everything has its cycles.
Your guardian angels are always spiritually present to your soul, and all of their messages in the form of signs have some significance that you should know. However, if you think this number has a special meaning, carry a pen and paper with you and write down all thoughts you had right when you saw the number 18.
Angel number 18 symbolizes: the need to balance your thoughts, releasing inner conflict, perseverance, and faith.
