I too see 56 everywhere as far back as 7 years old. Today, it has become a nuisance because I am trying to solve the enigma behind the number, but to no avail. Nonetheless, I feel due to the ongoing occurrences regarding 56 I do believe it has to do with thesuper natural, since it draws my attention at random times. Maybe, there is a commonality among us besides 56. Maybe, 56 wants us to figure it out.

I first starting seeing the #56 after i tripped LSD to be honest. I saw it on my phone while trying to facetime someone and ever since then I have seen it everyday at least 5 times a day. The trip was also a bad one and I saw demon like creatures but I prayed to God as I did. Im not sure if 56 means anything but if it does I believe it has to do with events in your life. If you begin to see 56 a lot more than you did, say a week ago, i believe it means something good or bad in your life is going to occur. Last week I started seeing it like crazy and then two days ago I got a speeding ticket and since then I have not been seeing it as much. Im sure I will start to see it again. I hope this helps you.

### My Deceased Uncle's 56th birthday

My uncle, who raised me and was my first love, the love between a father and daughter passed away 20 years ago. Today for some reason all I could think about was him, more than I ever have. His face has been in my head all day... I even remembered things that I totally forgot about. Memories running through my head. It frustrates me so bad that I had to ask when his birthday was. And it was today! His 56th birthday! What is he trying to tell me? Please help!

me and my friends have this weird curse. We always see the number fifty six every where we look at least 20 times a day. i am the only one who searches about it and it freaks me out. when we walk we see giant sign 56 on a random building or when we talk about this number all sign on our computer turns 56 (clock, battery, etc.). even one time i didn't have my period for 56 days which is weird because it was the first time i didn't see my period. i still don't know what 56 means and im scared can someone explain it to me?

I see the number 56 at least 5 times per day every day. This started when I was 10 years old / I think it's a positive number.

### 56

Hey everyone, I was searching for the reason I keep seeing the number 56. It all started when I was 16 yrs old. I was having visions & I was able to tell people about themselves without they even telling me anything. I could feel someone's pain & anger. Meanwhile this was happening the number 56 was all around me. I had 3 cell phone & they all have the number 56 present. My bank account also had the number 56 in it. I was living in Jamaica at the time. My son was born June 28. He is half of me therefore 2x28=56. When I was moving to the State, at the American embassy in I received my waiting ticket at 8:56am. My ticket was 056. When I finally got to America my cell number had 56 in it. I had turned my back on God but I never lost faith in him. A couple days ago I read My girl friend & notice she was raped a long time ago. She never told me of this so she was shocked and ashame when I said it. I asked God why he show me this & I asked him to reveal the reason to me. The next night I was sleeping next to her... more...

I was born in 56 , on the 215th day of that year but every other year my birthday falls on the 214th day of the year . So adding 2 + 1 + 5 = 8 and 2 + 1 + 4 = 7 , 8 x 7 = 56 . If you look at a year correlation chart 1956 is calendar No. 7 which falls every 28 years , which happens to be my birthday the 2nd of the 8th

This number has been with me since I was 11 till this day. Its become an endearing obsession. I got it tatattooed. (56er) I can't explain it but I feel a strong profound connection to this number. But I do not know why. when I try to make sense of it I get this feeling of a pass I do not know if I lived a place I don't think i ever been too and a memory I'm not sure even exist it's so unsettling. I doubt I'm making any sense. But it's nice to know I'm not the only one this happens too

### Devil's Time

by Anonymous - 4/14/14 7:43 AM
The Devil's time is actually 3:33 am.
I see this time quite frequently due to bouts of insomnia.
I do however think it is a bit of a gimmick seeing as 666/2 is 333.
Seems human made although spirits could always mimic our beliefs to tease us.

Hey, I'm back. I'm the person from THIS CAN HELP ALL OF US and I've found better information. While digging, I found a few websites with meaning to the number and I found this

Satan's schemes:
When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it, Then it says "I will return to the house I left." When it arrives it finds the house unoccupied, swept clean and out in order. Then it takes with it seven spirits (in this case, all of us) more wicked than itself, and they go and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first

I don't know how reliable this is, but at this point, nothing sounds crazy unless someone says, "This is just a coincidence." Because it's obviously not if there are more than 3 people who are seeing this number.

I have also seen the number 56 and it appears everywhere like the clock, channel, everywhere and I did some digging and in the bible, psalm 56 is. . .
Be merciful to me, my God,
for my enemies are in hot pursuit;
all day long they press their attack.
2 My adversaries pursue me all day long;
in their pride many are attacking me.
3 When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.
4 In God, whose word I praise—
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?
5 All day long they twist my words;
all their schemes are for my ruin.
6 They conspire, they lurk,
they watch my steps,
hoping to take my life.
7 Because of their wickedness do not[c] let them escape;
in your anger, God, bring the nations down.
8 Record my misery;
list my tears on your scroll[d]—
are they not in your record?
9 Then my enemies will turn back
when I call for help.
By this I will know that God is for me.
10 In God, whose word I praise,
in the Lord, whose word I praise—
11... more...

### Fifty six

by Peter - 5/31/13 9:13 AM
I was born in 1956
I am now 56 years old
This year in the Buddhist calendar is 2556
I liked all of the Heinz varieties except their broth
If you add “changing the locks”, “changing your number”, “emigration”, “NGO work abroad”, “becoming a bum” and “becoming a monk” there must be 56 ways to leave your lover.
It's getting cold in here – must be around 13 degrees Celsius
And it's getting late – 4 minutes to 1 in the morning.
I know this is too loony – or do I mean two lunar months?

I was born 12/12/1956. On 12/12/2012 I will be 56. I see the number 56 on my digital clock several times a day, every day.
Your information has been most helpful to me. Thank you, thank you

I have a first love whose father was born in 1956, he would have been 56 years old now which is the time I started seeing 56 everywhere. I never met the man when his son and I were dating. Later I found out he passed and he has given me signs that he is around me. I don't know what this all means, but I know 56 is his signal to me regarding his son, whom I am not in contact with now. Since 5+6 = 11, I have longed believed that his son and I are twin (11 11) souls.

### 56

by I Am - 3/26/13 10:12 AM
This number I found can represent testing and hope together. I know they seem an abstract mix, but I feel, at least in personal experience it feels so. For instance a powerful number in my life is connected to 56 and my birth number. BN x 56 = (after break down)a very powerful number in my life. I am still being hit with it.. Also be careful.. It always feels as though it is a a universal acknowledgement of a time of trial but of hope. This however may only mean that numbers. All of them possibly effect different aspects differently. For example, if you are even somewhat familiar with archetypes, look at numbers similarly. Maybe if you receive 56 when you start a new job it effects and represents something different enough but of the same energy source (or archetype) than if you see it your whole life, or etc etc

### Stop clogging the feed

by I Am - 3/26/13 10:00 AM
No offense, but I feel these pages would be more adequate if people only spoke when they had some insight to share.. Everyone just blurting out "yea I see it too" clogs the information filter.. Yes there is more to this reality that meets the eye, can we get deeper now though?

### About 56 And All Of Us Who Are Obsessed With It

by PinkDiamond - 3/19/13 11:13 PM
I think that all of us who see 56 everywhere should talk to each other, see what we have in common, and try to figure out what the common ground is. We should try and find out why we in particular have such a crazy obsession with this number.

I agree totally, I've been seeing it constantly for two years now, I looked it up online for meaning and i don't know what to think now, I sort of liked it thinking it was a positive number but now I'm not so sure! Great to hear I'm not alone!

Yes this number is driving me crazy, i always happent to look at the clock at X:56, my locker number is 56, my Boy scout troop is 156, what the heck dose the number mean. The only thing that kinda scares me is that 5+6=11, meaning chaos, and judgment!

I also happen to gaze at the clock and see the time X:56... then I started to search for its meaning. I pray that this does not mean something at all. My faith is stronger than anything that controls outside our being.

I see the number either "56" or 5:55 and i know 5 has to do with grace and 6 has something probably to do with the devil.
