In numerology, the number three represents self-expression, communication, creativity, optimism, and joy, numerologist Michelle Buchanan tells mbg. “It is a very powerful creative force that amplifies our thoughts, words, and emotions—so when we’re living in a high vibration, expressing ourselves joyfully and positively in the world, we attract more happiness, abundance and good fortune,” she explains.
And as medium Megan Michaela Firester (aka Mystic Michaela) adds, the number three also serves as a reminder that harmony is everywhere. “Our minds, bodies and spirits are connected as one. You have to take care of your life in a balanced way, or everything will suffer,” she explains, adding that seeing this number is a nudge from the universe to see which parts of your life you are currently neglecting and a call to action to get them back on track.
Similarly, Buchanan notes that the laws of attraction and manifestation work both ways—so if you’re using your gifts in a negative way, that energy is actually being directed at yourself.
