I have been surprised by the number of people who have asked me why I chose the name Number 11 counselling for my counselling business. The most obvious reason is that it's the number of the address of my work and home. However, a bit more thought did go into it than that.
Although I know very little about these sorts of things, what sealed the deal was when I came across the spiritual significance of the number 11. I know, right, doesn't sound like me but seriously, when you read about the meanings of the number 11, you will get an idea of the things that are important to me and why it became such a no-brainer.
Apparently, in numerology, 11 is the number of vision, balance, congruency, fulfilment, invention and refinement. Wow! As if that wasn't enough, I also read
That the number 11 represents male and female equality, and being able to respect differences whilst considering different perspectives,
That seeing the number 11 over and over again reveals reflection, thoughtfulness and intuition, and
That the number 11 supports conscious awareness, integrity and re-balancing.
Furthermore (and I accept that this might sound a bit tenuous), the number 11 also includes the qualities of the number 2 (because 1+1=2!). So as well as everything above, the number 11 deals with tact, calmness, equality, kindness and justice - all things that are very important to me.
It's not just numerology that marks the significance of the number 11. Tarot, dream analysis and Angel Therapy all talk about the virtues of the number 11. As I say, I am no expert in these matters but I know what I stand for and what is important for me ie equality, fairness and kindness.
And that's why I called myself Number 11 counselling! :)
