Discover Your Purpose
What's My Purpose?
Hey you! I'm talking to you! I know you're there. You, the one who is struggling. The one feeling like she's just drifting about in this life. I am talking to you because you have a need to create more meaning in your life. I get it. I've been there.
What's missing is your purpose. There is a reason why you are alive, right here, right now at this time in history. You have something incredible to contribute to this world that only you can do.
Of course, you know this already. That's why you're here. You have a deeper calling and you are struggling to discover what it is.
The drudgery of the daily grind is starting to wear on you. Work, home, dinner, bed, repeat. If this is how it's going to go everyday, then there has to be something more to it all.
You know you were put on this Earth to do more than work and buy stuff.
What is it? What is that something more you are supposed to be doing?
Are You Ready?
Are you ready to learn how to live a life of purpose?
How Do I Find My Purpose?
Yes. I know that's why you're here. To find the most direct path to your purpose. So, I'll give you the answer, right here - right now!
Your purpose is to Connect with your Higher Self . Your spirit. The most divine aspect of you. Yours source. Your light. Your Higher Guidance.
This way, no matter what you are doing, you will always be engaged with your purpose.
Not real fond of my answer? Does it seem a little too simple? Let me explain.
Purpose And Action
Don't get the idea of living your life's purpose confused with what you are doing in each moment. Yes, they are reliant on each other, but they are two separate things.
I've already established that your purpose is to connect with the highest version of yourself, in each moment.
No matter where you are, no matter what you are doing, ask yourself "What choice will best reflect my true spirit? My Higher Self? My light?"
Then you will best see what action you need to be engaged in, in order to best reflect your purpose.

Purpose And Intuition
OK. I hear you.
It's all well and good to grasp this idea of making the best choice in the moment. But what if you aren't comfortable with making these types of choices. What if you aren't sure if the choices you're making are the right ones?
This is where your Intuition, your best buddy in the whole world, comes in!
If you "listen to your gut" you can't go wrong. Your body will tell you if you are not making the best, purpose driven choice.
Things won't feel right. You'll tense up. You'll resist the actions you are taking. Things will feel heavy and wrong.
On the other hand, if you are feeling light, lifted and in harmony with the world around you, then I would venture to say, you are on the right track. This is because you will be doing what is best for you.
And what is best for you is living your purpose!
Purpose And Change
The beauty of living your purpose is the flexibility involved. Life is change. We grow and change. Therefore, the choices and actions you take will change as well.
You can live in purpose while pursuing a career. Then life may evolve and you may find yourself living in purpose while raising a family.
It may seem obvious that pursuing a creative endeavor, like writing a book, would be part of purpose. But at the same time purpose can be served while caring for aging parents.
As the journey of life turns and twists, so does purpose.
A Meditation To Help You Connect With Your Purpsose
Here's A Great Exercise To Help You Out!
I found this fantastic exercise over on Steve Pavlina's blog. You'll love this if you are really adrift and want some direction ~ Right Now!
- Get yourself a piece of paper or open a Notepad on your computer.
- Write "What's my life's true purpose?" at the top.
- Then write down whatever pops into your head. Just let the ideas flow. They don't have to be grammatically correct.
- Repeat the last step until you get a big lump in your throat and tears start rolling down your face.
I Thought It Would Be Grander?
I realize the simplicity of all this might really be a let down. We see people out in the world, obviously doing what they were meant to do. Watching someone like Oprah Winfrey, any President, or even our favorite actors. It seems like our first examples of those living in purpose are always the ones who do it grand.
The reality is, you could be sitting in public transportation on your way to a job that's not all that thrilling, but it is keeping a roof over your head and food on the table. Even in this moment, you can be living your purpose by being connected with your Highest Self.
This way, all of your choices during what appears to be a day of drudgery, can come from your purpose. How you treat others on the bus. What you say to your coworkers. Which foods you choose to eat for lunch. All of these choices, when made from and for your Highest Good, will keep you on the path of purpose.
And, soon, life will be grander!
A Purpose Filled Life...
By making choices and participating in the actions involved with living from your light, your purpose will start to be reflected in your everyday life.
You will experience more joy, creativity, courageousness, optimism, hope and kindness. You will be more persistent, loving, enthusiastic, energetic and generous. The world will seem more beautiful, loving, prosperous and filled with possibility.
I could go on and on. The truth is, once your choices change, your life will change. And if those choices come from your Highest Light, then this is what will be reflect in your life.
Your life of purpose!
