“The Doorway”

The Energy of Angel Number 11

Imagine you are walking down a long hallway. This hallway has a peaceful ethereal energy, not quite like any hallway you have ever been in before. A sense of safety and calmness washes over you.

Meaning and messages of angel number 11

As you slowly continue walking two magnificent doors begin to manifest before you. Upon approaching these doors, you realize the other side contains a world unlike any you’ve ever known.

It is a world of spirit, intuition, and faith. There is no rhyme or reason to what is there – it just is. You look back and see the world you are coming from is the opposite. It is dense and linear. Containing thought, reasoning, logic, and rationality.

If you walk through these doors you will be leaving the reality you know and stepping into a dreamlike world. A world dominated by the subconscious, dreams, and mystical wonders –unrestricted by any kind of rational thought.

Walking through these doors is to walk into the energy of the angel number 11.

It is common for the number 11 to be depicted as a doorway. As it carries the energy of spiritual awakening. Our ability to reach spiritual enlightenment. Such as walking through a door and waking up to our spirit, no longer concerned with what the physical world says reality should be.

It is not concerned with any logic or rational thoughts. It is faith. There is no need for reasoning when we lean on faith. As faith is the feeling of knowing… of believing without explanation.

The angel number 11 is a direct connection to our subconscious and the inner knowledge and desires that we are not always aware of. It is the most intuitive of all the numbers. With the energy of using feeling, intuition, inspiration, and idealism without any rationality.

The angel number 11 also carries the energy of creativity, self-expression, and vision. It is the side of ourselves that we allow to dream and see beyond our physical world. It is the energy of illumination, of lighting the way to different, better, and more spiritual things.

The energy of psychics, mystics, clairvoyants, prophets and all those who are not limited by our five senses or confined to the physical world is also a part of the angel number 11’s energy.

The angel number 11 has the energy of leading the way and paving new roads. Combined with the energy of faith, balance, and harmony.

The angel number 11 is a very intense spiritual energy and its corresponding messages are also intense. If you see this number often you are being called to push yourself to spiritual greatness.

A Master Number

The angel number 11 is a different kind of number. Although it carries the energy of the angel number 1 and the angel number 2 it also forms its own unique energy that is more powerful than most numbers. As one of only three master numbers, the angel number 11, carries a massive amount of energy and power.

Unlike other numbers, master numbers have a duality. They can be a blessing or a curse. To benefit from their energy, we must learn to harness and master it. Otherwise, master numbers bring difficulty and challenges.

When the messages of the angel number 11 are not mastered, you may experience its difficult side, including being shy, anxious, stressed, conflicted, scattered, fearful, and self-sabotaging.
