Come with me on a journaling journey
We're going to take it on faith that the deepest part of you does know exactly what you are meant to be and do, and has been trying to tell you all along. We're going to see if we can sidestep whatever is blocking that deep sense of knowing and coax a little of the mystery out into the light. So, let's begin
After taking a few deep breaths, and quieting your spirit, write whatever comes to you in response to these questions
(1) If you did know your life purpose, what would it be?
(2) If you were assured of having all the money you would ever need, but in order to have it, you would be required to volunteer in some capacity, what would you do? What causes matter to you? Who would you want to help? What would be the most fun way to help them?
(3) What do people count on you for? What are your talents? What comes easily to you? Effortlessly? We all have been taught to focus on our weaknesses, in order to improve them, but the real gold is in building what is already a strength!
(4) If you could make three permanent changes in the world, what would they be?
Now, take a few minutes to let the dust settle, and see if anything else comes to you. Some long-lost memory of boundless joy doing something that made time disappear. Some moment when you gave up on a dream --and the realization that you haven't given it a thought since.
After a few moments of quiet, look back over what you have written. If any ideas jump out at you, write them down without judging. But they may not jump out at you for fear that they will scare you. You may have to listen carefully to a quiet whisper, a tiny nudge.
If nothing comes to you, or nothing seems really clear, read on.
Many of us are blocked from awareness of our life purpose by limiting beliefs we have developed over time, messages we've been given by our parents about what is acceptable or possible, etc.
If that were true for you, what would your limiting beliefs be?
Were you ever discouraged from pursuing a dream?
If, at the end of this article, you do not yet know what your life purpose is, don't be disheartened. The fact that you decided to read this article means that your life purpose (or, your soul) is trying to connect with you to tell you what it is. Don't give up! Limiting beliefs are a powerful challenge but they can be healed!
Working with a coach or healer, or even diving into other information about finding your purpose will help bring some insight about what you are meant to offer the world. And when you find it, we will all be better for it!
