Spiritual Meaning of 147 | Angel Number 147

Do you see the repeating angel number 147? Find out the symbolism and spiritual meaning of 147 and what the numerology sequence means to you. I have written before about other repeating numbers like 46000, 10:10, 111, 11:11, 12:12, 222, 333444, 555, 666, 777, 888, and 999 if you see those numbers as well.

Seeing any repeating number is a sign a current issue in your life needs attention and the numbers are a sign to get you to pay attention. Think of it as Divine Timing and your subconscious trying to make you aware of something important at a conscious level through angel messages.

When a repeating number pattern like 147 you might wonder about it since it is a number that is not seen as frequently by most people. I originally answered this question for a subscriber via email and decided to post it here as I am sure many more of you see it as well.

The Numerology and Spiritual Meaning of 147

Okay I put together a mini-reading for you on the number 147:

I first look at the root numbers of 1, 4, and 7. Together they equal 12, 1+2= 3, and then the number 147 itself.

1 – leadership, being first, leading the way, taking initial action

4 – foundation, family, solid four legs, step by step organization, hard work, stability, balance

7 – wisdom, trust, lightening insights, seeking secret knowledge, intuition

12 – life of service, creative expression, sacrifice, education

3 – creation, joy, mother/father, child, mind/body/spirit, new life


So seeing the number 147 is about taking action to build a stable foundation for yourself or family by creating something new that can serve others. You use your wisdom, intuition and creative expression combined with organization to build a new life, product, or service.

When you see the number 147, ask yourself if there is some life area it immediately applies to. You need to use your initial first impressions within the first few seconds, not what the logical mind tries to put together to “make sense of things”.

Questions for Self-Reflection on the Energy of 147:

Thinking about starting a new business of some sort? Think about how to build the stable legs of the business. Do you need more education or secret knowledge in order to do this? What would you have to sacrifice in order for this to happen?

I think the biggest thing that stands out here are the lightening insights of the number 7 – no matter what life area that comes to mind for you.

  • What has appeared as a lightening insight for you?
  • What sudden flash of perhaps a fully formed plan has come to mind?
  • Is there something you suddenly “know” you need to do?
  • Are you allowing yourself to be creative and balance the family aspect along with mind/body/spirit?
  • Are you ready to step into the energy of the number 1 and lead by example?

    • Hi Paul,

      I have had this post sitting in my drafts folder for some time and today just intuitively felt like the right day to publish it. If you would care to share some or a portion of your experience I may be able to help you make more sense of that number.

      • I am not ready to be entirely vulnerable about this, but I’ll give the basics. For the last couple years I have been pursuing knowledge through means other than spiritual. Much of it in rejection of spirituality. While saying that, it is important to know it is still very morally grounded, in fact maybe more so. I just use logic as opposed to the hard to explain.

        So about 6 months ago I am having another experience where philosophy and spirituality are linking up for me and I recall my great-grandfather had written a book. I get the urge to find this book on Amazon and am lucky enough to do so. I purchase it and when I receive it there is a little letter he had written to the person he had sent the book to. This little letter happens to confirm he had very much the same beliefs I do, except his solution is through the spirit. The month and day he had written the letter also happened to have significance with me. I read the book and was astonished with his message as it was very similar to my own. Needless to say, I go on a little spiritual kick after this and one day while meditating I see the number 147. I had seen numbers before (444), and that’s I how I originally found you. So I search through trying to find the significance of this number and things all seem to line up. I even thought about reaching out to you, maybe I did.

        Eventually this all fades as what seemed intuitively to be right, is also asking a lot. And I am not sure I can sacrifice so much in the face of societal rejection. I have tanked recently, desperately wanting direction. Going as far as asking for a sign again in the last week. And today I see this from you. I am already consumed by what it is I think I am here for, I just lack the faith and confidence, oh and money, to pursue it. In some ways, I also feel as though I could be making the ultimate sacrifice, especially if I were successful. Sorry, wrote this all out on my phone. Any clarity would be greatly appreciated.

        • Hi Paul,

          Well, it definitely sounds like you are on a spiritual journey whether you call it that or not at the moment. The thing is you can step on and off the pathway many times. There is always more than one way to embrace and deepen your spirituality and it doesn’t always mean you become a psychic and give readings. Maybe it does, but perhaps that is not the immediate next step for you at this point. Seeing any repeating number is a way to get your attention and follow the next step in the path.

          You know, I am really getting a hit to share with you and it may be part of your next step in the path. I am quite a fan of David Neagle and I think he may make some sense to you. He is deeply spiritual and well-read in about 7 different religious philosophies. He talks about Universal Laws in a way that hits home for me and perhaps with you as well. If you go to his website DavidNeagle.com he has a bunch of free stuff available. If you aren’t ready to give up your email address, I would recommend his free podcast called “The Successful Mind Podcast” via iTunes and Android devices. See what you think anyway.

          You might also look into this book: “Working with the Law” by Raymond Holliwell. It is available on Amazon.

          I hope that helps you out for now.
