We are all here for a reason. We were all chosen by God to have a life. And each one of us has a beautiful, meaningful and important beyond belief purpose for our life. When we are living in our purpose we feel enlivened and whole. The opposite feeling can be present when we are unaware of or are in desperate search for our purpose. No matter where on the path to your purpose you are there will always be an undeniable yearning and pull towards a deeper meaning to our lives. I think all too often we are searching for a label to the “life purpose”. Something concrete to call it. Like my life purpose is to be a teacher, or my life purpose is to be a mother, a father, a writer, an artist, a doctor, actress, what have you. And if when we can’t find the label to attach to the purpose or if something happens to seemingly prevent us from being the “athlete”, “doctor”, “artist”, then we then feel lost. I think our life purpose is bigger than a label can hold. Labels are boxes they are small containers that are frankly too small to contain our immensely massive potential and divine life purpose. I like to instead think of our purpose as a fluid substance much like water that can flow and expand in many different directions throughout our lives. By allowing the essence of our purpose to be fluid we are opening ourselves up to fully receive all the aspects of our purpose as it presents itself to us throughout our lives. One way to begin to become familiar with your purpose is to ask yourself what it is that you’ve always done or always been able to do effortlessly but maybe never really thought of before. It is possible that you might have not acknowledged your purpose in the past because it is so imbedded in who you are. Take me for example, ever since I can remember I’ve always been the counselor to my friends and family. I’ve always had a yearning to help others and to help others find their happiness. So for me in regards to my life purpose I like to think of it in terms of a theme that I hold true in my heart. The initial theme I found for me is that “I am to help others heal, find purpose and joy”. Through that initial theme if you surrender and allow yourself to stay open you can then begin to become aware of additional themes. For me I’ve been able to become aware of additional themes such as: “I am to spread love” and “to help others find deep meaning and happiness in their own lives”. I find that by finding your “theme” you are then able to walk IN your life’s purpose no matter what it is you are doing. And that as long as we are authentically living in our life’s purpose in any given moment, (in line at the grocery store, with friends, family, business acquaintances and so on), we will be creating and opening up to the possibilities and opportunities to more fully day by day walk and live in our life’s purpose. I also believe that the opportunities to experience and grow in our life’s purpose will grow and expand with our life and that every moment is created for us to fully embody and walk in love and purpose.
Today I invite you to find a moment of stillness in your day. Close your eyes and take in a lovingly deep breath. Ask yourself what it is that you can contribute to this day. What can you contribute to the people or space around you. Ask yourself what is it that you’ve always sort of just done effortlessly that uplifts and benefits those around you. The answer to that question is naturally part of your purpose. A part of your theme. It’s a chord to your beautifully unique melody that only you can offer to the world. Then continue to do this practice each day until you begin to become more open and aware to your divine reason for being and your divine gifts that you are to share with the world.
Do you have an idea of what the theme to your purpose is? I’d love this to become a place of sharing.
Sending you so much love from my heart to yours!
