Who am I? Why am I here? – Your passion & purpose
When we start asking questions we know we are ready to shift, heal, and rearrange the life we have been living. Something within us stirs from deep, dark places and we recognize the need the change. This seeking is your Spirit pushing you into a new unexplored direction. Feeling lost, stuck, and afraid is shows you that something must change from within because the outside already feels in shambles. We often talk ourselves out of believing its time for a change until illness, breakdown or depression take over every area of life. It is here after the kicking, screaming and crying are over that we find peace and are able to open to a new idea.
“People are afraid to pursue their most important dreams because they feel they do not deserve them.”
Your Soul knows who you are and is often waiting for you to recognize its presence. Break the cycle of pushing so hard against your Spirit and allow your Soul to flow by opening your eyes to the possibilities. Life will offer you chances and opportunities, but it is up to you to embrace them. The Universe will guide you when you are listening, open and accepting its assistance. Have courage, compassion, and commitment to see the what’s in front of you. It is time to begin acting like the spiritual being you are meant to be.
By following this process of pain, dealing with denial, and healing the hurt you free your mind, body, and Spirit of the past and move confidently in your present. What we do on the outside is a reflection of who we are on the inside. Staying in your comfort zone is like being in prison, break free and live your purpose.
Many believe in the idea that our purpose is our job and/or career yet it is not. Our purpose is what we do that fills us with excitement, fire, and satisfaction. Often what we dreamed of as children is what we are drawn to as adults. If you could work knowing all your needs where met, what would you be doing? Most people say nothing, relaxing yet each of us has a unique expression in something. I have trouble staying within the lines in a coloring book, yet some of us are graceful artists. Some entertain, create, teach, build, and so on- what is your hidden, muted talent? When you do what you love, it never seems like work. Where you draw inspired creativity from is your passion. This passion flows effortlessly and within it, is your peace. Mostly this is perceived as a hobby not an occupation. However, for many people it is both. Allow yourself space to imagine yours. Self-reinvention is a powerful way to actualize your deepest desires and dreams.
Create a life you love by becoming more of who you want to be. Now is the time to stop sweeping things under the rug, stuffing it into closets or pretending you don’t see. Don’t hold yourself hostage to ideas of who you thought you were or others ideas of who, what, and how you are. Make a new plan, make a new life, believe you can and you will. Process the pain, deal with the denial, and heal the hurt now. Why not???
“Live your life on purpose not for purpose, you are here to live, love and be blessed”
