You are definitely not crazy. Sometimes these things just happen. It's really how you think. If you think the negatively about the number something might happen. Or you can think about it positively. I've heard actually many great things about that number like it answers every question in the world and that in Jewish believe helped create the world. So to me, it really is a great number. If it's actually following you, than that could be a good thing. Don't get your hopes to high but there might be some good news heading your way! Good luck, and keep thinking positive!

I'm glad I found this. The number 42 has been following me for about 15 years. There are times in my life when it becomes infrequent (or I stop noticing) and other times, such as now, when I see or hear it multiple times every day. I've actually started taking pictures whenever the number pops up somewhere, I guess to prove to myself and others that I'm not crazy. My mom passed away unexpectedly 6 months ago and since then, sightings of the number have been more frequent than ever. It's also been a tough few months for other reasons as well. I don't believe in God, although I might consider myself spiritual, as I believe there are unexplained forces in the universe and between people. As some of you have suggested, could it be a number that appears more often when life is tough? Or could it be a message of some kind? What do you guys think?

Can anyone help

by Arick Cordero - 3/04/15 5:58 PM
If 16 and I've been seeing the number 42 everyday for the past few months on several occurances. My grandma is all about Angels and Jesus and what not and my mother wants me to go to church with her everytime she goes but the thing is I'm Buddhist and yes she knows but she would prefer me to be Christian. I don't know if this matters but I would like somebody to reply giving me any information.

I have a habit of seeing 42 in the oddest places. At my last job, in the public closet, there was a pipe with a tag that had 42 on it. When I applied for college recently, the envelope containing my information was labeled with a 42. I'm 24 now, the house I'm moving to in Washington State is 4828. 42 pages in the booklet for my favorite game, and other than that, I always see a 42 somewhere during my day without even looking for it. It really is a special number for me, but I cant figure out why.

God is using that number to communicate with you. Trust me, I see it everywhere too. It especially pops up whenever I'm having a deep spiritual conversation about God with someone. 42 is prominent in the Bible. It is a sign. The Bible speaks of how young men and women will have dreams and visions, that there will be signs and wonders. We are in those times now. Cling to God, he is using me right now to tell you this. He is the only hope to survive the coming trials.

..Because I am an Israelite believer in Y'shuah here in the U.S, And at an early age of 17yrs old, I started to see it on the clock...then later realized that every hour that I glance at the clock and see 42 ,something bad was going to happen , wheather it be a bad argument at home, or something major out in the hood that involves me...I have seen the number on the clock went out with no worries, but later arrested. saw the number on the clock, then got robbed at gun point, saw the number on the clock before leaving my home, then lost a bus pass or something and was stranded....list goes on...everytime I SEE IT . It's bad not good .

I like how you call Jesus by his Hebrew name, I always thought it sounded so beautiful. I want you to know that you are not alone with 42 and believe me God is with you. 42 represents trials, but it also represents something much greater and that is that God is with us! No matter what lies ahead, know that God and his Son are fighting for you! They love you so dearly. Do not see 42 as a curse! God is with you my brother! I am glad to hear that you are a completed Jew, that is wonderful. It is sad how many Jewish people do not know their Savior. Please spread the love of Jesus to those around you, they need it! God be with you my brother in Christ. I am praying for you.

I keep having dreams about number 42.. and now it has started following me!
Wiki has some good pop culture references. In Douglas Adams' The Hitchikers guide to the Galaxy, '42' is the meaning of life. Level 42, the band, got their name from the then fictional band mentioned in a Clockwork Orange.
I don't know what this number means for me but there must be a reason it keeps appearing in dreams. Hmm :)

Bad feelings

by Anonymous - 12/31/10 10:42 AM
I am so relieved to have found this page and that I am not the only one. For the past 4/5 years I see the number 42 all over the place. I feel like im just going crazy sometimes but when I see it I get a really bad feeling almost like its a warning that something really bad is going to happen. I dont know how just the sight of a number can make me feel like that but im scared something really bad is going to happen in relation to that number.

have you noticed the time on posting your cent? I see 42 everywher it started aboutt 3 yrs ago it sends me mad somtimes, especially when randomly waking in the night an its 02:42 or 05:42, ive exhausted every possible logical avenue but still no answere, I know it sounds mad but the only answere that makes a morsel of sense is I believe that it is a message from the illuminati or the intergalactic parliament, crazy I know! I am a 37 year old male who was recently diagnosed with aspergers syndrome and im from britain, thers loads of bizarre situations I could bang on about but for now thanks so much to you and everyone for ther comments.

RE: Bad feelings

by Sam - 4/17/15 7:45 PM
Please no. It's not Illuminati. It's God. The irony is that God's warning you against a conspiracy like the Illuminati. Please believe me, I know what I speak of. A time of trial is approaching us. There is only one hope and that is Jesus. There's a reason the name Jesus is so well known. A man will come to great power soon, all will seem to love him, but he is doom! Do not fall for the great liar or he will consume you! Look for these signs and you will know that I speak truth when they come true.

I will tell you one thing; Do not be afraid. Be glad that you are priviledged to be amongst millions of people chosen. Most of you seeing these numbers ask yourself this; How has your life been over the years? Family, health, job, etc...
This number represents a turning point.Life is a repeat. We all have 3 strikes, and after that its all over.
Continue to do the things that you do. Most of you seeing these number are going through a very rough time, but still find a way to keep a smile on your face. Sometimes you even ask yourself where you got the positive energy from to move on the way you do... The number 42 is filled with huge amount of energy. We have been constructed by the greatest scientist of all. Such that words alone cannot describe His works, which is why most of us refer to it as miracle.
He knows each and every mind, and you are one of His.
There is a HUGE road ahead my friends, one lead to life and the other to destruction.
You already have a a stamp on life on your forehead. Now making... more...

RE: 42

I like what you're saying friend. I am a Christian and a young adult. I used to see 206 everywhere until I finally figured out it's meaning, now it's 42. Though I feel I understand 42's meaning pretty well now, I still see it everywhere and I know why. It's because it's as you say, it represents a time of trials and yet also represents that God is there with us along the way. Often times 42 pops up as I'm having a deep spiritual conversation with someone or with God. It's almost like God winking at me! I truly believe that I am going to be used by God during a time of great trials here on Earth. We are in the season now, and the time's approaching. We must stay close to God, for He is the only hope. God be with you brother.

The number 42 has been following ever since I can remember. Whether it be on tv shows to books to highway signs I always see it more than about 5 times a day. I'm curious to know if it means something, why is this number the only number to follow me through my years living. It all seems very confusing to me and I would hope for an answer.

First I started seeing 11:11, that evolved to me seeing 3:11, then came the 42s. I have been seeing 42 everywhere for the past few months; in those same few months I have also begun attending church regularly. I don't believe in coincidences, so I'm wondering why this number is appearing to me.

42 accept it!

I have recognized the number 42 since I was 7 and I am now 22: ironic age right my fellow 42 visioners? Haha I even have the number tattooed over my heart on my chest. Its nice to run across this blog and see that others like me also recognize this number.
I find the majority of the posts contain question after question, panic, or sincere confusion over why we are seeing 42. You are only "haunted" by 42 if you allow yourself to be "haunted" by it. One person says its a curse and the next says its a gift, then the other says its a sign.
In my humble opinion, 42 is equal, 42 is honest, and 42 just makes plain sense.. so why over analyze something that magically works..? why over analyze something that has balance and flows so easily into our lives on a daily basis? That's the point! Don't!
No matter what way you take it, at the end of the day all that can be said is you're currently reading this blog in search for an answer, but in the great words from the hitchhikers guide.. what exactly is your question?... more...

It's everywhere in my life

by slightly obsessed - 2/01/14 2:44 PM
Neat. My dad pointed out that 42 comes up a lot in life. That was about 25 or more years ago and I continue to see it all the time. It is neither good nor bad. Sometimes nothing comes from it, sometimes something does.
Eg. My dad died at the age of 44 in room 421. My mom was 42 at the time and I was 21 (half of 42). The last two digits of my employee number and phone number are 42. My user ID at work ends with 312 3+1=4 and then the 2. Even my meal card at the cafeteria ends with 42. Often when I look at the clock (like most of you) ends with 42. My house number is 375. 37+5=? My house is 42 feet long. 42 is the number of times Gale's name(Hunger Games) is in the bowl. As you see, it's not just a number that I only come across during the day, it's a part of my life and I think of my dad every time I see it.
I feel like there's a deep meaning to the number, but what?
I'm just glad I'm not the only one. ;)

Woah...that really stuck with me. However I am not in any relationship...I first saw it when I moved in to an apartment with my partner and it was that number. It makes more sense that it's something to do with questioning what life is, like in Hitchhiker's guide. I've noticed it change from its original meaning and now relates to children for me.

Seeing number 42

by Matt - 12/23/13 7:00 PM
I have seen #42 for a year or two. I think it's meaning for me is hang in there, as you are progressing, even if it feels like you are stuck in life. The first number sequences I started seeing were 111 and 1111, which made me investigate numbers. The last few months I have seen zeros, this appears to be uncommon with others, but I think it represents the higher self. But I have seen '42' - on a regular basis throughout. I wouldn't be concerned about it, serious warnings to people would come through other means I think rather than a number like 42!

Meaning to be patient

by Sean - 12/13/13 10:44 PM
This past February I met a man through certain circumstances and on our journey together the book Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams fell from out of my purse. I picked it up to put it back but he took it from my hands. He fiddled with the pages and asked where I was in it. I said perhaps the middle. When he asked what the secret to the universe was I blanked and so he told me to " keep reading". When I traveled back home I played with the book but could never get myself to read it. I had his army picture that a previous teacher of his had and gave to me because she is now my teacher. I looked at one night knowing I needed to hid it so I hid it into the same book. Just slid it in at complete random. For months before and after that happening I had become frustrated with the fact that I needed to know the enfamous secret to the universe but I just couldn't stay still reading the book. One night came on a Thursday when I grew sad of him not being around and so I opened the book to his picture. I... more...

No matter what the lesson of 42 is, the outcome depends entirely on how you look at it. Always think of life as an experience and an opportunity to learn and grow yourself more light. Every experience is here for you! Everyone will go through good and bad times suited specifically to your needs.
