Veteran’s Day honors those who have served in the armed forces. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. It also coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and mark the anniversary of the end of World War I. The hostilities of World War I formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect. Veteran’s Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, men and women who enlisted, fought, and/or died while serving our country.

Metaphysically, 11/11 is also a reminder of one of the most important significance of time 11:11 (am & pm) and its availability as a Gateway to higher consciousness, a moment in time where, it is believed, the Angels of Light can take your offerings, prayers and good intentions to assist their manifestation on the Earth. Whenever the 11:11 presents itself, it acts as a daily reminder to take that one minute to hold your dreams in your heart, acknowledge the support available from the Angelic Realm, and having the courage to affirm your willingness to move into new dimensions of Love.
