42 accept it!

by Anonymous - 7/23/12 6:34 AM
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. Interesting

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...

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.

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 :)

i am wondering how, when i was asked, that the answer i gave was the number 42. i was thinking in genetic terms at the time- such as chromosomal count- i have similarities in the things you mentioned but also have had very strange things begin to happen in my life. things which cannot be 'explained' you have opened my eyes to some very interesting concepts. i will continue on my journey with this in my thoughts but to not let it deter me from my path that God has set me upon...my faith is strong my friend, that is what has carried me through these times. dreams, that which creates hope, inspiration and the future...

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...

What do you mean by being amongst the millions chosen

Re: 42

by Mike - 5/02/13 4:35 PM
I want to hear more, I am a 30 year old male. 42 follows me. I do have tons of energy, but not ADD type , it\'s controllable physical energy. I can work and work, then ride my bicycle 100 miles which I did every weekend, so I'm no stranger to energy. The other thing u said that struck my interest is my smile. No matter what, could be the worst day on earth, and I have a smile. People on a regular basis ask me why I am always happy. I honestly do not know, it's like deep down in my core , the happiness prevails. I have a serious side , I get my work done and damn well. Very few can keep up with me , and I am not bragging. I am only trying to figure out who I really am. Why do I have that smile ? And how did u know that us 42's have these traits ? Please respond because I am very interested thanks.

..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 .

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.

I was searching the symbolism of 42 in relation to Jesus 3 1/2 years( 42 months) on earth and the 42 generations he came down through and came across this site. Interesting information, but I realize this number was also relating to the fact three of my sibblings died at the age 42 three ye
ars apart from each other. Every three years one sibbling would reach 42 and die. I know it was the result of a witches curse over my generation, but thank God the curse has been reversed back on the witch. I give God the Glory and all the praise.

Oh Wow I'm glad I've found this post! I've been haunted by this number since Oct 2012 (it's Mar 2013) and in Dec I got really fed up about this number following me. When I researched it I found the most interesting site. When I read it I was amazed because it coincided right along with the situation I am enduring currently! It read.. And this is for all of us that is hunted by this number. It reads:

Number 42

This is a fortunate number. It promises the assistance and association of those
of rank and position with one's plans. It also denotes gain through love and the
opposite sex. People having name in this number will have a steady mind. Good
jobs will come seeking them. Diseases like diabetic also can get cured. They will
have success in all aspect of life. They will have fame and wealth. They can win any
argument by the power of speech. They will have the power to attract many
others. If people born on 3, 12, 21, 30 have name in number 42 they cannot
expect good result.

For the past 5 years the number 42 has shown itself in such ways where even some friends were able to catch this number simply by hanging around me enough.It started on houses as im walking through a neighbourhood, randomly turning to look at a house literally everytime I looked it was house number 42. From movies I bought to even the secons on a clock. Faith?

I remember the number 42 being my bestfriend and my "secret" number....the number came up again between a former co-worker and I years ago where we discussed the deeper meaning of 42. Shortly thereafter his life DRASTICALLY changed...at 1st for the worse, but the change grew him as a person. I hadn't thought of the number for years. Just now, doing research on the occult, the number 42 comes up again...which brought me to this site. I just turned 44. I have come through the absolute most difficult year of my life...a year of horrible change: of job, of home, of relationship, of family, I even lost my father. But, wait...when did all this change initially get it's jump start??? THE LAST 6 DAYS OF MY 42nd YEAR! Change that both tore asunder and rebuilt...change that opened my eyes to evil and good. I do not see 42 daily as you all do, but trust me, I know the significance of it. I only wish I knew it's basic meaning.

Thanks for the Info!

I had been researching what has been classified as one of the most bizarre Bible stories, that of Elisha, the two she-bears, and 42 children of Bethel. I am of the opinion that something was garbled in translation and even at that, it was never intended to be given a literal interpretation.

I think much of it could be answered by fields such as astrotheology. Right before this, Elijah is taken to heaven with two chariots and a whirlwind. There are many cultures in the northern hemisphere that speak of "chariots in the sky" and of whirlwinds. Look up at Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, and the optical illusion of "spinning" around Polaris. Sometimes they are called chariots, sometimes she-bears (involves the constellation of Virgo).

Still, I could not pinpoint what the 42 children might mean. In Sumerian mythologies, the number 40 was a sacred number attributed to Enki, a god of sweet waters, wisdom, magic, and civilization. So I tried "sacred number 42" and found this page.

So far it has been helpful. I... more...

Math is the basis of everything. It's universal language through Universe. This shows us that we, and everything else is a grand creation.
42 is just a symbol to remind us this. To remind us that we are the builders and creators of this grand creation. And it's not surprising that most of us see these numbers in harsh and not stable periods of our lives.
It remained us that future is not written.

I found out about this "number illness" from my love of my life. She told me about this, and i was all skeptical.
But some time passed and i was thinking that i'm going crazy and there was 0 skepticism left.
At that time i'v had interesting thoughts in my head. Interesting theories and thoughts.
Long story short. I was a moron and didn't appreciate what i had. We broke up. (At that time i didn't realized i loved her so much. It all happened in 2006 and i still do love her)
