No one likes to feel trapped or caged, as it’s not how our brains are programmed. Being all caged up and stuck is always seen as a negative, and it can feel like being stuck in a prison cell.
Whenever I’ve encountered angel number 1221, it has always had to do with a situation where someone has felt trapped.
This has been something that people I’ve known have encountered, but I have had this as well in my time.
If you’re reading this guide, you may have encountered this angel number and may already know what I’m talking about.
Because I know personally what it can feel like to be confronted with the implications of this angel number, I wanted to share a bit about what it means and perhaps how you can deal with it.
I hope that this guide will be helpful to anyone dealing with seeing this number!
Is Angel Number 1221 Unlucky?
As I touched on before, this angel number can have some negative feelings attached to it, and this has been the case every time I have personally encountered it.
The number itself actually illustrates the message your angels are sending to you.
On either side is a 1, and there are two 2’s sandwiched between them. The number itself looks a bit like a cage, wouldn’t you say? You may be wondering if this does indeed make this angel number unlucky.
I would say that the number itself is not unlucky, but seeing it is your angels saying that they’re not happy with the situation you’re in.
This will be a situation that was ongoing before the angel number came along, so it wouldn’t have been caused by the appearance of the number.
That’s why I would hesitate to call it an unlucky number, but I would say that it is not strictly positive.
However, having a negative connotation can actually yield something positive. I’ll go over some practical ways that could be the case in the next section,
But for now, I would say that your perspective is important whenever you’re faced with something that may not be as you want it.
You always have to take the good with the bad and accept that there have to be bad times to go with the good.
Whenever I’ve supported someone who has recently gone through a breakup, they often feel like their life is over and they won’t be able to live without someone.
I always tell them that as long as they learn lessons from their experiences and take it forward, then that time was not wasted.
Your angels are showing you that something in your life is making you feel trapped, and this could be anything from a job you hate to a relationship you’re stuck in or anything in between.
It can be easy to get stuck in such a situation, as we don’t get the motivation or support we need to get ourselves out of the situation.
Instead of seeing this angel number as unlucky or a curse, I would suggest instead taking it as a wake-up call.
Your angels want the best for you in this situation, and they’re offering you some guidance.
The changes they’re encouraging you toward will only make you happier in mind and spirit, so while it may be a bit ominous to get such a message, look at it as a stepping stone to something better.
What NOT To Do If You Keep Seeing 1221
A few years ago, I found myself confronted with angel number 1221. It started to show up seemingly everywhere, and I found this confusing.
On reflection and after much meditation, I arrived at the message I was being given, and at first I was uncertain that I had interpreted it right.
When i first thought about it, things seemed to be mostly okay in my life, so I wasn’t sure what was giving the impression that I was trapped.
Then, I realized what it was referring to. There was a person who used to be my best friend for many years, and then we had a falling out.
I’ll spare the details, but I spent many years angry at the person, refusing to take their apology to heart.
They had been a pillar of my life for so long, and then I had only anger toward them. Was the anger justified?
However, this negative energy was holding me back spiritually. I phoned my old friend and invited them to coffee.
After many years, we were able to patch things up and repair the relationship. I didn’t encounter 1221 again after that, and it showed that I had been trapped by these negative emotions.
The angel number means that you may need to do something that makes you uncomfortable or even fearful.
I was feeling so anxious when I pressed ‘call,’ and I considered hanging up a few times before they answered.
Whatever is making you feel trapped may feel impossible to escape. When you’re in a job you hate, it can feel impossible that you could find anything better, so we often just deal with it.
The same can be true for relationships or any number of situations you can feel trapped within.
Often, all it takes is the courage to make the choice to make things better for yourself. Therefore, the worst thing you can do when you see this number is just assume that it must be wrong and that you don’t need to do anything.
Try to take some time to reflect on what you’re being warned about, like I had to in my situation. It wasn’t obvious at first but it came to me when I really thought about it.
Where To Look For Your Numbers
One of the questions I get asked the most frequently is “Where will I find my angel numbers?”
It’s a question I never have an easy answer to, and I know that most people expect something definitive such as “Just look under your coffee cup each morning.”
I also always see a flash of disappointment when I give my answer, which is typically a variation of “Don’t look for them.”
There’s a saying that goes “Love finds you when you least expect it,” and I’ve found this to be true for that and for angel numbers.
If you spend all your time looking for something, you will be less likely to find it. When it comes to angel numbers, you shouldn’t be constantly seeking them.
It’s more about being perceptive and open to them than it is about knowing where to look. For example, I remember where I saw angel number 1221 back when I was encountering it.
The first time was after I suddenly woke up from a strange dream and saw it shining brightly on my bedside alarm clock.
Then the next morning, I had a fruit juice bottle turned in such a way that 1221 was showing on the barcode, which I happened to spot out the corner of my eye.
Finally, I went to watch a YouTube video that had been on my mind, and I saw that it was 12 minutes and 21 seconds long.
By that point, I was positive this was no coincidence. The thing these all had in common is that they were mostly pretty easy to miss. How often do we pay attention to the time in the middle of the night or the length of a video?
When your angel numbers appear, you should feel some guidance toward them. There was a reason I noticed them, because I was open to it.
So instead of constantly looking, just keep an eye out and pay attention if some numbers feel special or significant for no particular reason.
When you have determined that the numbers mean something, you can do the work to figure out what they mean!
My Final Comments on Angel Number 1221
Now that you have a better idea of what angel number 1221 means for you, I really don’t want you to take the wrong message from it!
Try not to look at it as something negative or as a reason to worry and fret. Rather take some time to have some quiet moments of meditation.
Your angels are trying to speak to you, and now that they have your attention it is time to listen.
What they tell you will probably be something you knew deep down anyway, but this is your sign to make some changes.
It is scary and not fun, but starting is always the hardest part. Once you get going with these decisions and these changes, you will feel that your angels were right all along!
I know that you will have the courage and strength to live your life to its fullest and make things better for yourself.
