Your partner’s money decisions can make or break your relationship. If you are experiencing financial challenges, debt and money stress, you understand the tension it puts on your feelings about your partner and you may even be quietly pondering your next step.
If you are in this situation, it’s really tough. Do you stay together and have one calamity after the other, all the while tensions building and love becoming crushed under the weight of your problems? Do you walk away, washing your hands as much as you can of the financial disasters?

Money challenges can be turned around, but it requires knowledge and understanding of what is at the root of the situation. It gets down to what energetic influences is causing your partner to make the choices that he or she does.
Let me give you an example.
I recently ran into a fellow who is having big money problems. His lady had bailed several years ago, leaving him to raise their son on his own. All the property he owned have been lost in foreclosures. He was left with a bunch of items he had accumulated from other failed business and real estate ventures.
He told me his birthday and that was all I needed to get a snapshot into the challenges he faces. You see, money problems don’t have external causes. They are created from our attitudes, beliefs and energetic influences.
Both his Soul Essence and Life Purpose numbers are 11. Now 11 is a very powerful and challenging number and to have two of his main numbers be a number 11 means that for this person, the energetic influences and challenges for the number 11 was doubled! He had chosen a lifetime with great potential, if he could learn to master this master number.
The number 11 looks like two pillars. Each 1 represent opposites, polarities, male- female or yin-yang.
The challenge and ultimately the power when accomplished, is to figure out how to balance these opposites elements and use them as tools of empowerment. Walking between the pillars into the unknown with confidence, grounded and focused, is the goal.
When a person can remain in that balanced and neutral state, they they can draw on all the energies equally from both polarities and create a harmonious blend of united force. A relationship between the person and opposing forces is created. They stand on their own two feet and are independent and self sufficient.

Number 11 also contains the seeds of relationship. This person wants a relationship that is filled with peaceful cooperation and gentle communication. They want to be part of something, surrendering themselves to become part of a unit.
Without understanding the challenge and reward inherent within this set of numbers, an unsuspecting person can be pulled from one extreme to the other; from pillar to post, such as being overly generous and feeling taken advantage of.
