Read on to learn what Bridget means in spiritual terms. When you were born under the influence of the expression number eleven, you are an extremely inspiring person to others. You are energetic as well as intuitive, however because you often begin fine-tuning your intuition at a young age you tend to be misunderstood by your family and friends because you appear to be somewhat quirky or even strange. This has made you shy and even introverted in your life but there is a lot of magical as well as spiritual potential which you have at your disposal should you choose to tap into it. As an eleven, you are almost entirely a receiver, which means that energy just flows through you at rapid speeds at points in your life.


This has been somewhat disorienting in your path but it actually does provide you with a great amount of power even though it can at points also make you feel overly emotional. The life task of the eleven is to figure out how to ground when there are so many energies around them at all times which they are sensitive to. When you learn how to ground you can pick and choose which energies are good for you and which are not, and then learn to attract the positive and either manipulate the negative to become positive or stay away from that energy all together. Through the channelling of this energy you have a tendency toward inventing things as well as using your creative energies to produce much in the way of spiritual guidance for others. Elevens tend to be religious leaders as well as prophets all over the world.


Because you have been criticized in your life because of your ‘out of the box’ thinking, you tend to get a little bit stuck in a level of self reflection in which you beat yourself up much of the time. You know that you stand out but you have as of yet not been able to sort out exactly why that is or what you should do about it. As an eleven, it is more than time to embrace your quirky qualities so that you can thrive in your life if you haven’t already.  You are not alone in this world, and you are important. But in order for you to meet all of the potential that you have you must spend some time improving yourself at an integral level. You tend to mature somewhat later in life which can seem frustrating for at time, but generally speaking you are going to be able to get a lot accomplished in your life. Pay attention to your nervous system, because you can at points get a little bit caught up in the stresses of life around you. Do not let depression stop you from accomplishing your desires.  When you are feeling as though you do not have a direction in life just take a moment to look at your life for what it is, identify what it is that needs to either change or what you need to create and then focus all of your energies on that very thing until it exists. Continue to do this and to master the art of creation so that your more mature years can be full of all of the stability and possibility that you have in store for you.
