I have noticed 11:11 since I was a child and it usually comes with some sort of “aha” moment or when I wake up from a dream of significance, that I notice the time on the clock and say a prayer or make a sort of “wish” when I was young and for a while I even experimented with holding my breath until the clock changed to 11:12. I don’t know what all this is about, but with 10-10-10 coming tomorrow, I finally got up the nerve to share the vision I woke up with on 11-11-07 on my tumblr blog today. I will paste it below and also paste the link to the blog post. And then I searched 11:11 and found an article here with lots of similar comments from people who have also been wondering about the significance. So I will post the information here as well and keep praying about what this means. Here is the blog and link to where it was originally posted below…
Celebrate ONE Day
With a heart and passion for unified diversity, I received a vision in 2007 for a day of unity, “That ONE Day” as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke of in his “I Have a Dream” speech. I have a dream that ONE day, 11-11-2011, we will come together to celebrate our diversity and connect in commonality, building peaceful, mutual relationships beyond cultural boundaries.
Personally stalled while still searching for a job to bring in needed income to support my family as a single Mom with two children, and still writing songs and stories independently, I have no idea how any of this will come about. I just have to get it out there and would love to share more of these ideas and work full time toward this goal, recruiting a leadership board of empowered visionaries who can help to make this happen. I am sure I am not the only one who received this call! In John 17:21-23, Jesus prayed, “That all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you…That they may be one as we are one; I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity…” I am a follower of Christ, but this is not about religious agenda. Every ONE is welcome. “Seek first to understand, then to be understood,” as Stephen Covey taught in The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. Auditioning for Oprah’s OWN show in Atlanta with ideas for a program called OPEN that would help connect and foster understanding among people of different cultures and backgrounds, I felt confident that was the way to go, but did not receive a call-back. I still love ya Oprah!
Moving forward, if there is anything you can do to help, I am seeking positive peace partners to join with me in this mission. I would greatly appreciate your consideration, support, and prayers. Email me, [email protected] to connect.
