Sun.Star Cebu - - LIVE! - PA­TRI­CIA MAY P. CATAN / Writer

If you haven’t no­ticed, to­day is Nov. 11, which also means it’s 11/11 on the cal­en­dar. This num­ber com­bi­na­tion is of­ten be­lieved to help make wishes come true. But does this claim rep­re­sent a fact, or is it made-up fic­tion?

How peo­ple per­ceive this num­ber com­bi­na­tion can mean dif­fer­ently for many. But there are those who strongly be­lieve that it does make wishes come true if you’re dili­gent enough.

It’s not on this day alone that we en­counter this num­ber se­quence, but we also come across this num­ber ev­ery day if our tim­ing is right. That’s cor­rect. It’s re­flected in time too. When the clock hits 11:11, it’s time to make a wish, as many like to be­lieve. But for some, it’s only co­in­ci­den­tal that they see 11:11 on the clock. The ma­jor­ity, on the other hand, dili­gently waits for it like their life de­pended on mak­ing that one wish.

Whether it’s just co­in­ci­dence or the other way around, it’s ob­vi­ous that a lot of peo­ple make 11:11 a habit. The source is un­cer­tain for where this prac­tice came from. Peo­ple might have heard it from a friend, fam­ily mem­ber or through word of mouth. Noth­ing’s clear about its ori­gins ex­cept that make a wish at 11:11 is a thing that grew on peo­ple. As for the 11:11 su­prem­a­cists, this day might in­crease the odds to make your wishes come true.

The stars have aligned for you on this day. You may want to call it a lucky break or how­ever you pre­fer. To­day is your chance to shower the heav­ens with wishes. This might sound pretty crazy or out of this world, but there’s noth­ing wrong with stand­ing by what you per­son­ally be­lieve in. If wishes don’t work for you, lift prayers in­stead. It’s not ev­ery year that we en­counter some­thing as philo­soph­i­cal as this, so why not take your chances?

There’s noth­ing to lose any­way, and you can only look back on this day as a great mo­ment where time froze for a minute that in­creased your aware­ness of what’s hap­pen­ing and a point in time when you de­liv­ered the most pow­er­ful in­ten­tions. You’ll be sur­prised with how far those wishes are ac­tu­ally heard and made come true. Go ahead and make that 11:11 wish on 11/11.
