You live in a world where a good number of folks don’t even believe that they or you or anybody has a purpose. While greasing the wheels of capitalism is certainly one purpose we all share, it doesn’t exactly leave you with a lasting or meaningful sense of satisfaction.
I actually believe that you have more than one purpose and also that your purpose evolves over time as you do.
In one primary respect, your purpose is to live your life as fully as you can. To be present to your winding life journey, and to accept it as it is. And that includes healing any and all barriers to living fully.
“We’re so engaged in doing things to achieve purposes of outer value that we forget that the inner value, the rapture that is associated with being alive, is what it’s all about.”
– Joseph Campbell
If you’re reading this, I’m betting you feel a tug in your heart and soul. A tug that pulls you forward into the unknown. A tug that leads to something bigger than yourself.
Sometimes it’s nothing more than a whisper that speaks in your dreams, or subtle messages that are easily dismissed.
Sometimes it’s just an ache in the heart. A knowingness that there’s something calling you but you’re not fully heeding the call.
When it comes to embracing the call of the soul, it’s so easy to compare yourself to others. One gal’s purpose may seem more impactful, or somehow bigger than yours, louder than yours. Brighter. Shinier.
This comparison easily leads to discouragement. If you feel like the longing of your heart isn’t important or glamorous enough or just plain good enough, you’re not going to easily find your way to your purpose.
What I’ve found through my transformational work with women is that there are definite prerequisites to finding and living your purpose.
It’s rare that someone wakes up one day with that “Eureka” knowingness that allows them to step fully onto their soul path and into their purpose.
For most of us, even if we have a good sense of what we’re here for, it can be too scary to really go for it.
If living your purpose – and swimming in the luscious pool of satisfaction and joy that comes with it – is your goal, I find there’s a whole lot of clearing that needs to happen first.
One of the scariest parts of living your purpose is letting go of your very human yet egoic need for safety, clarity, and control over the process.
Joseph Campbell so beautifully said, “We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.”
And no, your Ego is NOT a fan of this!
The journey to your soul path requires that you show up
in ways you perhaps have never been allowed to before,
or quite possibly haven’t given yourself permission to.
You see, the journey to your soul path and purpose is a journey to belonging:
- A journey of deep inner work; self-awareness that leads to self-acceptance and self-compassion
- A journey of healing your painful past that keeps you feeling separate, and thus existentially anxious and fearful
- A journey to finding your authentic self and voice
- A journey of healing your heartache
The journey to your purpose is a journey of remembering that you have choice and agency. You get to create your reality.
I believe that like the mighty oak tree that begins as a tiny acorn, you, too, were born to flourish, to heal, to evolve, to ascend.
Within each human is planted a profound seed of potential. Are you tapping into the creative energy of that seed and living your soul’s purpose?
If not, we should talk. The world needs you now more than ever. And you need you more than ever, too.
