Calculate your Life Path Number
It is rather easy to calculate your life path number; it is simply the total of your birthday reduced to a single digit. If you were born on 11/13/1981, then your Life Path number would be 1+1+1+3+1+9+8+1=25=7. The Life Path Number is the leading number in the life of an individual. Your Life Path Number determines the skill sets and the natural talents a person will excel in, gravitate towards, and attempt to master.
When a number repeats in the total or reduces to a repeating number, it is considered a master number. These numbers include 11, 22, 33, 44, and 55. Master numbers “double up” the impact of the number being repeated. They stand alone, first; then you reduce them (11/2, 22/4, 33/6, 44/8, 55/1). Now, let us learn about the Life Path Number 11!
Life Path Number 11 Meaning
An individual that has life path number 11 is purpose driven and destiny bound. Therefore, they have passion and energy to be a beacon in life, leading by example and achieving at higher levels and more idealistically than a stand-alone 1. Their personality develops through their efforts to be profoundly unique and authentic.
As people, they embrace single-minded focus, devotion to their calling, and intense individualism. Therefore, their strength is leading the way as an excellent and stand out example. Since they act with Destiny’s blessing, they overcome challenges thrown in their way by will power, intuition and decisive action.
The Number 11 life path has a strong vibration for being the best at what they do, above and beyond others in their field. These individuals want to take the lead into the unknown. Individuals with Life Path 11 will prefer to work alone to see what the spiritual essence of individuality is and how is the best way to express individuality in a healthy way.
With their devotion to Self (with a capital S), they must constantly strive to perfect their form; they do not aim for the target. Perfected form guarantees the best outcome. This person succeeds by achieving spectacular results as a way of life and work. Whatever career path they choose, they will want to maximize the experience for themselves, which will, in turn, benefit others.
On the shadow side, they may find it easy to disconnect and detach, eschewing any kind of help. Their tendency to think that “I can do it best without anyone” can lead to limiting experiences that leave them unsatisfied. Since they want to know their ultimate purpose, they will often find people who lack focus and a will to achieve excellence nearly impossible to comprehend. Therefore, they will struggle when they cannot get people to leave them be to work on their work.
Number 11 individuals are selfish and selfless partners, who oscillate between the two energies since they are the double 1 and the 2. They seek autonomy to be themselves while using that autonomy to support the partnership. They prefer to experience love from others since that helps them understand how their identity affects those they love. Therefore, this person can have a hard time with partners who are financially needy, emotionally dependent (instead of dependable), and passive.

At their best, they are the most capable and present lovers. Once the partner has gained the loyalty and trust of a person with Life Path 11, they can express their authenticity with complete support from the 11 individual. The key phrase for this number in love and relationship is, “You and I make we”. They will say it and want to hear it.
A Life Path 11 child is a loner whether they are an only child or a sibling. However, they easily connect and are companionable when wanting or required to engage. If there are siblings, then this child will want to come and go as he or she pleases with his or her sibling(s). They will want to their parents to leave them be unless they explicitly ask for help. The number 11 represents the “I do” or “we can” principle. They will respect hands off parenting, and want the rules of the family to keep the family functioning without disruption.
If the parent is a Life Path 11, likely they will be the “hands off” parent, focusing on personal achievement as the best pathway for family security. This parent engages most when the child learns how to read the parent and knows when to approach or stay away. Since the Number 11 is a “chosen one”, the parent that is an 11 will prefer to be in and out of the family according to personal choice and circumstances.
Physical and mental health
The physical health of a Life Path 11 benefits most from at least one personal activity and one shared activity. Physical activity is a way to do inner work and connect with others. Winning is important sometimes; and sharing a human experience through exercise is valuable at other times. At the core, this number wants to use exercise to be its best working out by itself or with another.
The mental health of a Life Path 11 needs a “calling”, so they need to feel the higher purpose of their mission on earth. This is a number that wants to reach a pinnacle of personal success that can be shared with others lovingly. Being unique and individualistic is essential for their mental health. This number, more than any other, becomes unhealthy when trying to meet the expectations of others.
Other Numbers and Their Importance
You also have other numerology numbers that are important and that refine your Life Path Number. No one is the pure embodiment of a number, but the Life Path Number is the foundation. Other important and truly significant numbers include an identity number assigned by your society, like the social security number in the United States. The number of your full birth name, as recorded on a birth certificate, is your Destiny Number. Numbers that form your daily life are important, like your phone number, or the address of you home.
How to Use Numerology in Your Life
Once you become aware of the numbers of your life, you can use them to help you succeed in your career and your relationships. If the Number 11 is your Life Path Number, then realize and test the idea that being selfish in “the right way” is how you make the best life for yourself and help the world.
