Two sayings I hear (and sometimes say) a lot are: “You have to take the bad with the good,” and “It is what it is.”
These sayings mean that in life, there will be good times and bad times, and this is something we have to accept. We don’t always get to focus on the things we want to, which can be frustrating.
Angel number 88 is a number that is blessing you with the ability to focus on the things you want in life. It’s a number that focuses on happiness, fulfillment and joy in your life.
Allow me to show you what this number has to offer for your life and how your angels want to bless you!
Your Angels Are Sending You A Message With 88
I am a big proponent of affirmations and manifesting the things you want. Something many people forget is that your angels want you to be happy.
An aspect of this that gets ignored as well is that sometimes the things we want are not the best for us. It may be disappointing in the moment, but sometimes it’s for the best when we’re denied our desires.
Our angels have a much wider, more detailed view of our lives and our spirits, and they have a better idea of the path we should be taking in life.
However, if your wants, needs and desires fit into a plan that will benefit your spiritual development, then it’s worth training your mind and your spirit on these things to direct you toward them.
The number 8 is one that deals with abundance in things that contribute to happiness. It’s often associated with wealth, and this can be in terms of finances, possessions or love.
But it also refers to a spiritual balance and harmony from within. This is further highlighted by the fact that it is doubled in this angel number.
When a number is doubled like this, it increases the power and meaning of the number. This is especially the case when there is only one kind of number, as we see here.
If there were any other numbers in this sequence, then it would change the meaning of the 8s we see. It might give it a more specific focus or meaning.
However, the focus is entirely on it here, so we know that this is a message that relates to you achieving the things in your life that make you happy.
It is important to remember that the things you want may not be ordained and supported by your angels. If that ends up being the case, then you need to accept it and move on.
Faith in your angels is important in this regard, as it can be disappointing to be denied the things we want. However, it’s worth clinging to the knowledge that your angels know what is best.
Your angels will consider the things you want, and if it fits into their plan then they will bless it for you. In the next section, I want to recall a few mistakes I have seen people make with this and similar angel numbers before.
Never Do This If You Keep Seeing 88
Earlier, I touched on the importance of manifesting and making affirmations. Doing this is a good way to put the focus on the things you want in life, and it can have various benefits.
Not only does it bring these to focus for your angels, but also keeps it strong in your mind to keep your motivation focused. When you focus on the things that are part of your angel’s plan, you should feel a strength behind them.
However, one mistake I have seen people make is that they ignore when there are signs that the things they want are not supported by their angels.
Your angels will pay attention to the desires of your heart and bless them from time to time, but sometimes they will decline to bless these things.
There are a few reasons why they may not bless them, and the main one is that they see that it is not the best thing for you. This is a lesson I learned the hard way many years ago.
There was a person in college that I really liked a lot, and I longed for the opportunity to date them. This was despite the fact that I didn’t really know them or their character, and I didn’t feel much of a spiritual draw.
In fact, I felt forces that were subtly telling me that this was not a good person for my life, but I ignored these instincts. At this time, I had yet to train and focus on my psychic and spiritual connections.
So, I pursued this person and we did end up dating for a while, but it ended up being a disaster. We were a terrible match and it made my life a lot more miserable.
I ended up wishing that I had listened to my instincts and feelings on the matter. This is something you should try to do when you have a good or a bad feeling about something.
If you’re focusing on something you want, but there’s an emptiness or feeling of repelling involved, then it may be better to let that thing go.
I really encourage you to not get angry or frustrated if there are things you are denied, especially in this time of blessing. Rather remember that your angels see and want the best things for your life.
If something doesn’t work out, it will be for a reason, so don’t try to force it when things don’t go your way. You’ll be glad about it in the end, so trust your angels and the feelings they cast on you.
The Hidden Meaning Behind Angel Number 88
The fact that angel number 88 is made up of just one repeated digit is interesting, as it makes the focus less distinct and final. Often in angel numbers, we will see other numbers like 1 or 2.
If there was a 1 in this number, then that would more than likely indicate that the focus of this number should be on yourself. If there was a 2, then it might have to do with relationships.
However, we see just one repeated 8 in this number, which means this could apply to many different things. Most times I have helped people with this number, it has been a more inward-focused number.
It generally refers to focusing on the things that make you happy, but it can have other meanings as well. Sometimes, it can refer to making the other people in our lives happier.
We often have a lot more power over the happiness of others than we think, and 88 can refer to that. If you take the time to think and meditate on this number and you feel happy in most aspects of life, then it may be time to look outward.
Look at the closest relationships in your life and see if there is something you can do to make someone else happier. Perhaps you could spend more time with a loved one or even give someone a phone call.
You could even be in a position to ease someone’s financial burden or loan them something that will help them. Helping others is something that should never be done with selfish intent.
However, it’s still worth noting that helping and caring for others is good for your soul as well. Your angels will always smile on your selfless acts, and this will return as a blessing for you.
Again, this should not be the sole motivation of the act, but it’s something that brings happiness and peace to all who are involved. Angel number 88 could be a focus on not just your happiness but that of loved ones as well.
Try to see where your angels lead you in order to determine if the focus is on you, others or both!
My Final Comments on 88 Angel Number
Focusing on happiness can feel like a selfish act to some, but I think it’s good to care for yourself every now and then. It’s also important to bring focus to the things that make you happy.
Your angels also want you to be happy, and this is a part of their plan for you to have a fuller life. When angel number 88 shows up in your life, it’s a call to focus on the things that nourish your spirit.
It could also be a call to help other people in your life in any way you can, and this will further bring strength to you as well. I know that this number will be a major blessing in your life!
