At some point in life we all contemplate our purpose here on this earth. It seems to be the one BIG mystery we all want to solve, maybe because we believe we will have peace when we know the answer.
Have you ever wondered –
Who am I supposed to BE?
What am I supposed to DO?
And WHERE do I find the answers?
Today’s Soulspiration may not give you all the answers right now, but it will definitely help you find some meaning and assurance that you’re on the right path.
I’m reminded of the story The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Andersen. You know how the story goes. A little duckling, who looks different from the rest, gets picked on for being different. He leaves the nest to find the place where he truly belongs. After many struggles he finally discovers his true natural beauty and abilities, then flies off with the swans.
The truth is that the ugly duckling was always a swan. The purpose of his life was to learn, or better, to remember his truth. Sometimes the lessons on the path to remembering are easy. Other times they are painful. You know this to be true in your life, too.
If I could tell you what your life purpose is, I would. But I can’t and no one else can tell you either. What I can do, and how I help my private clients, is to show you the best places to start looking for your purpose and your truth. There are clues along the way.
Two Clues to Finding Your Purpose in Life
1. The times you feel most joyful. When you are doing things that are in alignment with your truth your whole mind/body/soul feels tingly and excited. It feels like a sense of knowing deep within your bones and your whole being wants to celebrate. Take notice of those moments. Don’t dismiss them. They are BIG clues to your purpose. Maybe dancing makes you feel this way. Or running. Or calculating mathematics. Or anything really. It doesn’t mean you must include them in your career or job. It just means there is something about this activity and way of being that resonates with your soul. When you find the things that light you up, include them in your life in some way.
2. The times you struggle the most. You may want to skip the struggles in life and just be the swan. I completely understand. However there is value here, especially in those challenges that seem to keep recurring. The beauty in the struggle is knowing there is something FAR GREATER on the other side. For now just be open to the idea that you don’t have to fix the struggle. You’ll simply move away from it when you are ready. And if you’re not moving away from the struggle today, just love yourself anyway. You are still a swan.
You are ever-evolving and becoming more like your true self every day. Don’t worry that you’re wrong. All paths are valid and all experiences reveal your truth and your purpose.
