There are a number of websites on the internet that suggest that if you see a number in succession three times (111, 222, 333, 444, 555 etc.) it means that
"angels" or "spirit guides" are communicating with you. The website above says that variations of these numbers also hold meaning. That includes (212, 313,
414, 515) or (1021, 1031, 1041).
The effect that believing this is happening creates in a person who would normally behave rationally, what are known to psychologists as "delusions of reference".
Their decision making abilities will be reduced to "flipping a coin" at the drop of a hat, or the "sight of a number" a person is encouraged that they are on the wrong
path, or that they are suddenly on the right path.
This creates a painful reaction when a person is happy about a decision and then they see "666" and are convinced, something is wrong, I must have made the wrong
decision. The mind of the brainwashed victim is constantly filled with numbers and doubts and rationalizations.
There are books about angels which preach this (by "Dr." Doreen Virtue), there are numerous blogs and websites other than the one above (www.222mystery.com) (http://lightworkers.org/blog/79298/111-222-333-444-555-666-777-888-999)
and to my surprise prominent self help gurus such as Wayne W. Dyer seem to be promoting it, although sneakily.
On one of Dyer's famous speeches for his infomercial on channel 21 in New York he recounts a story of being suddenly awakened from his sleep at "3:13 AM" night after night. Is it a
coincidence that this number is listed on these blogs, books and websites as one of the "magic numbers"? According to the website above 313 represents the spirit guides
supporting you. It is odd that Dyer would want to recount this story to a live audience and a TV audience. What is he trying to say? Or what does he want to signal his support for?
Finally, this whole 2012 phenomenon. I personally am not aware of every detail of this fiasco, but is it being manufactured? Is it sane? What is being promoted here? 2012 also, is one of these
so called magical numbers.
The bottom line is, it seems someone came up with the idea, just supply these desperate new age followers with instructions and they will effectively brainwash themselves.
