Life Path 11 is described as the Intuitive Healer. They have a special gift for emanating natural healing energy to those who come into contact with them. Whether they are aware of it or not, there is just something about the energy of a Life Path 11 that radiates positivity and light.
But we all know that there cannot be light without darkness, yin without yang, black without white, or highs without lows. Although Life Path 11s have a highly spiritual vibration full of compassion, enlightenment, and illumination, there are other qualities they possess that aren’t all sunshine and rainbows.
Life Path 11 is a Master Number and has many of the same qualities of Life Path 1 and Life Path 2. Additionally, they have certain traits and characteristics that only those in the 11 vibration boast. In this article, we’ll discuss the shadow side of Life Path 11 and things you can do to vibe in positivity.
Shadow Personality Traits of Life Path 11
As an old soul, you are full of wisdom and knowledge. Life Path 11s are continuously learning new things and enjoy spending their time seeking the truth. It is not uncommon for them to spend a majority of their time diving deep into a new subject and learning everything that they can about it. Because of this, Life Path 11s may believe that they possess knowledge that others do not.
When these characteristics become unbalanced, you can be perceived as a know-it-all. In this instance, you’d be hesitant to listen to the opinions and ideas of others because you think that your opinion is the right one; especially if it is a subject that you’ve researched in depth.
Yes, it is true that there are things that you just know. Life Path 11s are extremely intuitive. It is also true that you are an avid researcher and there are a plethora of topics that you know quite a lot about. Sometimes you are seen as the jack-of-all-trades. However, you must keep your mind and heart open. Although you are a teacher, the teacher must also be taught.
It is important for you to remain humble and curious. You can learn so much by listening to the thoughts and ideas of others, even if they may challenge your own. You mustn’t be on a high horse, carouseling around as if you’re the wisest in the room. Remember, there will always be someone smarter, someone wiser, and someone more intuitive than you.
Life Path 11s are highly intuitive. In fact, you are the most intuitive of the life path bunch. But we all have experienced times when we do not trust our intuition. For most, intuition is something that must be developed. Numerous people are guided by their intuition, but this is a skill that requires strengthening, just like building muscle.
When you do not trust your intuition and become stuck between using your gut or logic to decide, you can get caught in analysis paralysis. In this state you are indecisive and have difficulty making decisions. You may continuously go back and forth between your choices and may become so exhausted that you make no choice at all.
Not trusting your intuition can lead to a lack of direction. You become inert, stuck in the same place that you started almost as if you were a truck stranded in mud. Additionally, because you vibrate in the one and two energy, you may often feel a sense of contradiction within yourself. The energy of one and two are opposite. This opposition in your vibration causes even further confusion as you are not always sure of how to balance these energies. The difficulty you experience in making choices may lead to an overwhelming feeling of anxiety or depression, which takes us into the next shadow aspect of Life Path 11.
Prone to Anxiety and Depression
You are a lightworker! Life Path 11s have a strong affinity to spreading peace, happiness, and love throughout the world. They have a burning desire to see others joyous and in a state of harmony. But let’s just face it, our planet has a long way to go.
Far too often we hear stories about war, destruction, and random acts of violence. For you this is extremely disheartening because what you yearn to hear are stories of peace, expansion, and intentional acts of kindness. When you are privy to the negative occurrences happening world wide, you may enter a state of deep sadness. You may think to yourself, “I’m not doing enough. How can I change this? How can I help the world become a better place?”
A burden is placed on your shoulder as you attempt to discover how to heal humanity. To combat this, it is imperative that Life Path 11s stay away from the news. News networks promote stories of violence, hate, and negativity. How often do you see positivity on the news compared to negative stories? Not often! Be cognizant of the type of content you consume. You are quite sensitive and must keep your force field strong.
In truth, this world houses many dark entities and negative forces. Life Path 11s are prone to encountering energy vampires who are quick to drain the life out of them. Opposites attract, right? You are a ball of light. Because of this, you attract dark energy. When this happens, your life force energy becomes depleted, leaving you feeling unnerved and filled with sadness.
If you happen to notice a sudden shift in your mood where maybe you were feeling happy and then out of nowhere you just feel down or depressed, take note of who is around. Notice your thoughts and what you were doing at the time. Spiritual warfare isn’t just a myth. There are truly individuals roaming this Earth with the sole purpose of spreading negativity.
Further, as a Master Number, you enter this realm with a persistent feeling of pressure. You feel that it is your duty to accomplish something big, like making the world a better place. You know from an early age that there is something that you came here to do. But discovering what that thing is may take time. Life Path 11s can be quite impatient. Sometimes you may feel like you aren’t doing enough or like we have not made significant humanitarian progress. Although humanity has come quite far, there is still a long way to go. You must realize that with every good deed you engage in, you ARE making an impact.
Slow to Mature
Life Path 11s take time to bloom. It is not uncommon for you to feel confused about your purpose or your life’s mission in your youth. Yes, there are some people who have it all figured out by their mid-twenties. But for Life Path 11, you may not recognize your goal or your potential until your forties or even fifties.
You must engage in self-development as soon as possible. The sooner you begin the more you’ll learn about yourself and the sooner you can begin impacting others. Self-awareness is key. When you know better, you do better. Learning about yourself from an early age can save you a ton of heartache, confusion, and anxiety. Diving deep into your personal blueprint will provide you with understanding about why you do certain things, hidden talents that you didn’t know existed, and may even guide you towards your personal dharma.
So although Life Path 11s are like fine wine, you can accelerate your process by learning about yourself NOW. Learn all about your numerology chart and your natal chart. Take time to discover your personality type, your enneagram, and use any self-development tool of interest to find out who you are.
As a Master Illuminator, you have intense energy. Your energy is that of a Life Path 1, magnified. Due to your intense energy, it is not uncommon for you to become scattered or ungrounded. Life Path 11s have a very close connection with Source and you can easily reside in the clouds, forgetting to keep your feet planted on Earth.
You also tend to receive multiple downloads on any given basis. Ideas formulate in your head automatically. You are easily inspired and can imagine almost anything! But as mentioned, this may develop into a lack of direction as you don’t always know where to start. Couple that with your proneness to indecisiveness and a soul without direction is born.
Life Path 11, you must learn how to ground your energy. This is non-negotiable for you. In order to manifest the many ideas that you receive, you have to first ground yourself. Grounding will help to send the extra energy that you have back into the Earth. It helps to alleviate feelings of anxiety and tension as well. Being grounded will allow you to focus your energy and cultivate your thoughts into reality. It is okay to work on several projects at once, but DO NOT over do it.
As a double one, you are extremely independent. You tend to be self-motivated and don’t mind your own company. However, the amount of independence you possess may lead you on a path of loneliness.
It is not always easy for you to compromise. You can be stubborn and neglect to compromise with others. There are many times when you’d prefer to be by yourself because you do not want to set your desires aside to compromise with anyone else. This stubbornness may sometimes be viewed as selfishness and may push people away.
Although you are independent, we all need connection. It is in our nature to connect with others. Do not let your independence go so far as to mold you into a loner who only relies on the self. Remember, you are a Life Path 11, not a Life Path 1. Life Path 1 did come here to develop the self, but as a Life Path 11 your mission is entirely different.
You have many attributes of a Life Path 2. Life Path 2s are all about partnership. The energy of the two is that of harmony, balance, peace, and support. Be mindful not to let your independent nature overshadow the connection you must develop with others. You are here to develop both humanity AND yourself. Do what you can to find a balance between the two.
Having the energy of Life Path 2 makes Life Path 11s sensitive, nurturing, and empathetic. You may find that you tend to sacrifice your needs to fulfill someone else’s. Life Path 11s have a tendency to be overly selfless, forgetting that in order to care for someone else, you must first take care of yourself.
Far too often you are your last priority. Instead you make time to tend to and solve the issues of those around you, while your pile of issues begin to multiply. This may be because of your desire to see people happy. As a result, Life Path 11s can become people pleasers.
Additionally, your desire to care for others can cause you to dismiss your boundaries.There are times when you know that your life force battery is on the brink of dying and requires a recharge STAT. You then proceed to say “yes” to something that you truly have no energy for. This is due to your fear of letting people down. It is your duty to learn how to say “no,” and to mean it.
Do not let anyone disrespect your boundaries. Do not disrespect your own boundaries. To function productively, we must conserve our energy. This is the idea of the yogic principle of brahmacharya, the fourth yama of yoga. Life Path 11s have to master self-care and must learn to identify when to take a break. You cannot let others continuously use you. Remember, people can recognize the light within you because you shine so brightly. If you neglect your boundaries, they will be quick to milk whatever they can out of you with no regard for your well-being.
Instead of committing to things without pause, decide that you need time to think things through before giving an answer. That way, you can assess whether or not you have the mental, physical, or spiritual energy to commit to whatever is being asked of you. When you find yourself saying yes when you really want to say no, it is a sign that there’s a hole in your force field that needs repairing. In these moments, take time to yourself to get back in tune with what it is you need to be the best person you can be, not only to others, but to yourself.
Life Path 11s can be quite powerful. You have the ability to alchemize, manifest, and invent. These skills are sometimes effortless. You may even surprise yourself with what you come up with and how little time it takes. Your ability to channel your creative energy with ease may lead to an overly inflated ego.
You know you are dope, and others do too. But it is essential that you remain humble. Yes you are creative, yes you are magical, yes you are powerful; but don’t let this go to your head. You cannot fulfill your mission if you mount your high-horse and forget to come off of it. You have to let go of any pride you develop due to the strengths you were born with.
You are a naturally confident person and believe in yourself whole-heartedly. When you become aware of the power that you possess, remember to be modest. Do not use your power for manipulation or for any other reason that doesn’t serve humanity.
You must remember that you are not better than anyone else. We are all here to grow and to learn from one another. In times when you find your ego taking over, take a step back to humble yourself. A quick way to express humility is to practice mindfulness and gratitude. Be mindful of your thoughts and actions. Recognize the error of your ways and strive to be better. Be thankful that you have the ability to think about things you can do to become a better person.
As a Master Number, you feel that you have a duty to accomplish great things. Life Path 11s tend to not only want the best of the best, but to also BE the best. Your standards are quite high and you tend to not settle.
Your high standards can often lead to dissatisfaction if you feel like they haven’t been met. You place a lot of pressure on yourself and others to be a certain way and to do things in a specific manner. Oftentimes you strive for perfection. There may be a plethora of instances when things fall short of your expectations. Because of this you may frequently feel unsatisfied.
Life Path 11, you must remember that nothing is perfect. Flaws exist and they can be beautiful. You have to learn to lighten up a bit and go with the flow. Things won’t always work out your way or live up to your standards and that is okay.
Practicing the art of acceptance and letting go may be helpful for you. This way when things do not turn out how you expect or fall short of your vision you will not harbor any feelings of resentment or frustration. You can simply observe and let it go. Everything happens the way that it should. It is okay to let loose from time to time and not be so rigid.
You are a light being, but remember the shadow follows closely behind. Hopefully this article gives you some insight into the not so bright characteristics that you may possess. With this information, you can work towards improving these traits when they do arise.
If you take away one thing from this post, I want it to be to take care of yourself. Protect your energy at all times and take time to rest and recharge when necessary. We are made of energy and it is essential to restore our energy when it is low.
You may feel like a conundrum. You have the vibration of Life Path 1 and Life Path 2, two opposing energies. This often causes you to feel misunderstood, contradictory, and confused. Please remember to find a balance between these two energies. Also, fluctuating between our solar and lunar energies is part of the rhythmic flow of life. Sometimes we just need to be; to observe ourselves without judgment or attachment. As long as you are aware that these are traits that may be present within you, you can work towards improving each and every day.
