Life Path 11

My mom sent me this today. My life path number is 11 (add up all the digits in your birthday). I think a lot of this sounds true! I highlighted some of the parts that resonated most. I thought the part at the end about career path was very interesting - counseling, acupuncture, physical therapy. In college I thought I was going to become a counselor but I changed my mind because I think I would internalize too many of the emotions of the people I counseled. Even just interviewing to work with mentally challenged people I felt a sense of extreme guilt and despair and fear. Now lately I've been talking a lot about going into physical therapy or acupuncture. Hmm...... (ps i have no idea why the font is like this).

Your Life Path is 11

Your Life Path (sometimes called Destiny) is derived from your birth date. Your Life path is the road you are traveling. It reveals the opportunities and challenges you will face in life. Your Life Path number is the single most important information available in your Personality Chart!

You have the potential to be a source of inspiration and illumination for people. You possess an inordinate amount of energy and intuition. There is so much going on in your psyche that you are often misunderstood early in life, making you shy and withdrawn. You have far more potential than you know. You galvanize every situation you enter. You inspire people, but without your conscious effort. Energy seems to flow through you without your controlling it. This gives you both power and sometimes emotional turmoil. You are a channel for information between the higher and the lower, between the realm of the archetype and the relative world. Ideas, thoughts, understanding, and insight - all of these can come to you without your having to go through a rational thought process. There seems to be a bridge, or connection, between your conscious and unconscious realms, attuning you to a high level of intuition through which even psychic information can flow. All of this amounts to a great capacity for invention. Many inventors, artists, religious leaders, prophets, and leading figures in history have had the 11 prominent in their chart.

Because you are so highly charged, you experience the consequences of a two-edged sword. You possess great abilities, but indulge in much self-reflection and self- criticism. You often feel highly self-conscious. You are aware on some level that you stand out. Even when you try to blend with your environment, you often feel conspicuous, alien, and out-of-place. You are blessed with a message, or a specific role to play in life.** But you must develop yourself sufficiently to take full advantage of that opportunity. Until that time, your inner development takes precedence over your ability to materialize the great undertaking you were chosen to perform. Consequently, 11s seem to develop slowly, but they simply have more to accomplish in their evolution than the average person. Thus, your real success does not usually begin until maturity, between the ages of 35 and 45, when you have progressed further along your path.

You may often be frustrated, largely because you have extremely high expectations of yourself. But these expectations can be unrealistic, and can prevent you from accomplishing anything. You can be very impractical, envisioning a skyscraper when all that was necessary was a two-story house. You may also suffer from bouts of confusion and lack of direction. This gives rise to loss of confidence and the onset of deep depression. The cause of these emotional problems is your lack of understanding of your own sensitivity and potential. Your desire to achieve some great ambition is enormous. However, a lack of confidence in your own ability to realize this dream may cause you much frustration. You sense the enormous potential you possess, which requires equally enormous confidence in your ability to materialize your dream. Confidence is the key that unlocks your potential. On a strictly physical level, you must protect your nervous system, which is inordinately vulnerable to stress because of your acute sensitivity. Depression is often the result of long periods of stress that have gone unrelieved. Seek out peaceful and harmonious environments, relaxing music, and follow a healthful diet in order to restore balance and peace. As an 11 Life Path, you are a highly charged version of the 2 and possess many of the characteristics and talents of that number.

You can be extremely diplomatic and tactful. You are also patient and cooperative. You work well with groups and somehow find a way of creating harmony among diverse opinions. You enjoy music and poetry and require a harmonious environment. You have an eye for beauty and a fine sense of balance and rhythm. You have healing capabilities, especially in such fields as massage, acupuncture, physical therapy, and counseling. You are a sensitive and passionate lover; your perceptiveness makes you aware of your partner's needs and desires, which you are able to fulfill with almost magical delicacy. However, when you feel you have been mistreated or jilted, you can react with devastating power, sometimes using personal criticisms vindictively.

You are a fine companion and possess a good sense of humor. When you have found your niche in life and begun to realize your true potential, your rewards will more than compensate for your trials earlier in life.

I sure hope that last sentence is right!

** Maybe this will sound funny but I've always felt I was supposed to do something important in this life. In my mid-twenties, when I got out of college and realized I was just a little fish in a big pond, I sort of changed my mind about that, thinking that EVERYONE probably feels that way, and decided not to take it (or myself) TOO seriously. Even now though, one of the threads that keeps me tied in my current line of work even though it's not what I really want to be doing is that I need to feel like I'm making an impact on the world beyond my little bubble. And you affect history when you work on international politics. My name might not be in history books, but when people look at nuclear/WMD/proliferation in this time, I will have played a role in it.

Of course the other thing that keeps me tied to my job is that I don't know what else I would do?! I know that soon I'm going to be a full time mommy. But I also know that's not a forever thing. I will have to find something else to do with myself. Both physical therapy and acupuncture would require a LOT more schooling! More for the PT, as it is a doctorate. I would have to go back to UNDERGRAD! And take hard classes too like chemistry, biology, and labwork.

Anyway. Thought that was interesting to share!
