seventeen

I have been haunted by the number 17 since I was 17 years old. I'm however born on the 24th of August (and now I'm the 317th comment being posted)... It goes in waves with me...some weeks the number doesn't contact me at all...other weeks it contacts me every single day several times... It can be the time of the hour, or the fact that I received number 17 as my employer's number at work, that my uni started on the 17th of october, that there are 17 metro stations to my university...and so on... I don't know what this means and it feels a bit "silly" (or even ridiculous) to think "I'm the chosen one", I mean then we're all the chosen ones right?! I'm just happy to see I'm not the only one... I also see the number 17 in relation to "4" and "47" all the time... Does anyone have this experience as well?

Number 17 seems to follow me as well. Since i was young i noticed it felt different to me then any other number. I would often guess its appearance in movies or TV shows or news, seconds before it would. I am always happy to see 17, however never understood why. Its weird because i too felt it had to do something with God, then now i decided to search why i felt this way. This year 2017.

I was born into the address 1717. Yes, 17's everywhere but this is new for me. Im 51 yrs old (3*17=51) and 47 has been showing up a lot lately as well. It's an impending date for me, 4-7-17. Id always felt like Im supposed to have a 4th child (Im a man). The gestation period from conception to birth has been put at 268 days. 4-7 plus 268 days = 12-31. Thatd mean, theoretically, the child would be born in the year '17.

17 significance

by Anonymous - 1/15/17 8:06 AM
In the early summer of 2015, I was outside doing some yard work when I heard the loud sounds of locusts during the middle of the day. It seemed strange so early in the summer and in the middle of the day but then I remembered these were the 17 year locusts who come out of the ground to eat, mate, sleep for awhile and then return to the ground. I sensed the Holy Spirit saying to me to go back inside and find out what "17" meant in the Bible.

This was the beginning of Biblical numbers and I discovered the meaning of "Overcomer" or "Victory". God reminded me that I was an overcomer. He then had me look at the Hebrew calendar and I discovered I was born on the 17th of Adar at 2:17 a.m. Using gematria I also discovered some other patterns of 17 showing up.

I began researching other Biblical numbers and reading the Bible now is exciting as I see other layers of meaning from the numbers used, etc.

Number 17

by Joyce - 12/27/16 2:46 PM
Today is 12/27/16 ..... My birthday is 9-17-43 ... Researching these birthday numbers at times over the past few years, has changed my life and is definitely changing my plans for this coming year of 17, 2,017. I'm in total awe of what is about to happen in my life this year. At last I will be useful. Already I have learned and understand much about life and how things work. This coming year all that accumulated knowledge will come together to be put into practice. Thank you soooo much for all the information on your website. I must now let go of the past to become what I was pre-destined to be at last in Christ, so as to be a good servant of our Most High God. I wish I had understood all this when younger, but it seems all is as it should be. :) Thanks again! .......... joyce

On the 17 of this Month 12-17-2016 that day was very off I knew my sister was fixing to call me out of the blue since we don't talk, I also saw the numbers 1:17 and 7:17 and 11:17, I looked in scripture which made since what it was saying to me. But then I read that there is a place in Cali that repsents 17. Google 17 California. Then dejavu hit me and a earthquake keeps coming to me. I read this article and January 17 the was a big earthquake in California and I know they are due for a big one soon, but what concerns me is all my family lives up there. I pay close attention to numbers I believe that's the Holy Spirit talking to me along with music mostly oldies and hip hop, you be surprise the music lyrics actually tell a story.

The number 17, mathematically speaking, is the most commonly occurring 'random' number in the universe.

Many times in books, shows, movies etc, when a 'random' number is needed, 17 is chosen.

This doesn't mean 17 can't have significance for specific people. It just means that 17 is the most popular 'random' number.

I've had 17s pop up, along with 11s, my entire life. My bday is 8/11/1982, but my due date was 8/17. The man I love, who is older than me, was born 8/17. I met him when I was 8 (1 + 7).

His hometown area code contains 17. It comes up a lot for him, too.

Interesting read :)

I've been seeing number 17 for at least 7 years. Is incredible how this happens licences plates, clocks, houses numbers. Once in a while I play lottery with this number but haven't hit the big price....yet. I would like to know the meaning.

I worship a woman, dear to me. Sending her verse, weekly. Reached my 16th verse now on the 17th. To make it holy & mystically reasonable, I search what it is the 17th meant. Now I am onto a revelation; interesting* intrigue+

Another curious thing: not only my last post was submitted at 3:17 pm without my awareness (5:17 pm in my time zone) but the difference of days between my post and the previous one on 03/22 is 17 days and the comment before that was on 03/05 another difference of 17 days :)

Dreams

by Anonymous - 3/22/16 9:01 AM
Ur dream @ ur nana has significance. God/ur unconscious spirit is "speaking "to you. The fact that the # 17 replays in ur life is a matter of an urgent message - much like u repeat something over & over to ur kids when u need them to u derstanding something & they don't seem to b getting it. Dreams use what u kno to symbolize the message that God is trying to get across to you, HIS CHILD(in spirit). Kinda like hieroglyphics/pictures r used to convey a story.
I would highly recommend u getting the book, "THE DIVINITY CODE to understanding your dreams and visions"

Very interesting. No wonder Hilary Rodham Clinton ([email protected], etc. used that number back in 2012 for her private email address. The White House is on the 17th Street of Washington DC. I am impressed with all of the meanings you quoted of 17. fascinating.

I am happy to read this page, which helped me to be in touch with people who experience the same " experience "I have been experiencing for the past 2 years. In 2015, I was struggling to find affordable place for accommodation, then now found and live in 17 house number.

Since 2013, I have been looking for work, then in 2015, I recieved a letter written on 17 July 2015, that sate that I am appointed for a new job, to work as technician in the office of the Vice president.

Long time ago in 2013, when I have been looking for an affordable vehicle to buy, for farming, the lucky I found some old German retired couples , selling their vehicle at affordable price, cheaper than the market value, and that car was having a plate number registered as 117 :)

My mobile phone numbers and my bank account numbers both contain 117, without my choice.
Just yesterday, 15 Oct.2015, I have got a good news that I am admitted for study at one of the best university of Africa, then later I discover that the letter with a good... more...

Same here with similar situation. I'm haunted by 17 too, since primary school as far as I can remember, it's just everywhere around me accompanying me, ID number, building number, basement number, birthday, name....hundreds of thousands of cases which is hard to count over. And through these cases, it's like this number 17 is leading me a way to these things: god, religion, vegetarian, yoga, spirit, taoism......I don't know if it's an illusion or some psychological thing, but it does influence me, and transfer me from an atheist to a god believer, from a meat-eater to a vegetarian, it's special number to me like a friend. Really happy to see this article and all the conments from those who are sharing the same experience.

17 recurring

by Louis - 11/13/11 8:08 AM
17 has been haunting me for years. Like no other number or incidence. Table numbers, flight seat numbers, graffiti (the only) in majorly random places (like on a tree in the middle of the bush in Zambia no17), idenitification numbers, times, number plates, it's really tiresome. Wish I could know why this number just keeps coming up. I have shared this with close friends and family and even they are truly mystified and intrigued by the occurrence in my life. If I put fuel in my car it will end on seventeen liters or a digit like 25.17 liters poured, or the amount to pay will be $55.17 or $71.17 ...If I drive somewhere and stop, ODO will read a distance.17, or 17 ...It;s driving me up a wall. Would go to a restaurant with friends, they would choose a table, the restaurant is completely empty, table number is 17. Go to another restaurant a few years go, all table except one is available, table 17. Happened to be at a casino that night so I figured (as I'm not a gambler) to play roulette. Put $50 on number 17,... more...
