To start off with, you have to know that I'm one of those people who believes in practically everything [although not so publicly]...from horoscope to the whole "the world is ending in 2012" nonsense. i'm a believer.
I was watching some tv show today, which you'll forgive me for not mentioning, and they talked about life path numbers and how they influence our lives. My curiosity was piqued and soon i was googling away.
Although i found a whole bunch of different sources [unsurprisingly] and different ideas, i found this to be the closest to my heart.
This is a short excerpt of what it generally says:
The number 11 Life Path has the connotation of illumination describing its general focus. This is the number associated with spiritual awareness. As one of the two master numbers, the 11 yields understanding and knowledge beyond the grasp of others. The attitude toward life of those possessing this Life Path is somewhat extreme; extremely intuitive, avant-garde, idealistic, visionary, and cultured. These extremes make you an interesting, if unusual person, with much to offer society.
