Knowing Your Purpose Will Transform Your Life. Here’s How to Figure It Out

Becoming familiar with your life purpose will change your life. It was such a liberating experience for me when I first learned about why I came to this Earth and what I needed to learn. It literally changed my outlook on life overnight.

There is More than One Way to Discover Your Life Purpose

I often have my coaching clients ask me, “How do I learn my life purpose and plan?” Many times they want to connect with their spirit guides in order to find out this information. Sometimes this isn’t possible because they are not yet ready to do this. When they are unable to connect through hypnosis, I suggest to them a program of observation to give them indicators and information about the different areas that are related to their life purpose. You can do this too.

Illustration Example

To illustrate my point, imagine yourself on the other side before you decided to come to the Earth this time around. You are walking along a beautiful sunlit pathway with your primary guide and having a conversation. Behind you is a group of people that you recognize from your life—your partner, your mother and father, your siblings and even a few people with whom you have worked with over the years. You’re excited today because it is your turn to finalize and put the finishing touches on your life purpose and plan. You are here to work out the interactions that you will have with all of these people when you incarnate as a group on planet Earth.

You will have a soul agreement with each one of these people that outlines what lessons you will learn from one another. This is part of your life purpose. You will make agreements to behave in a manner that will “bring up” issues between the two of you. That is because we tend to forget our agreements when we reach the Earth plane and we know that reminders are necessary.

“It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.” – Winston S. Churchill

Influence of Environment 

We don’t live in a vacuum. We live in a dynamic, ever-moving environment in which we are constantly being told what we came here to do. If you listen and pay attention, you can hear the messages quite clearly. Your family, your friends, and work colleagues are performing a sort of passion play right before your eyes in order to fulfill their obligations to remind you of the lessons that you came here to learn.

If you look and listen, you can hear the subtle messages and/or see a recurring theme. That theme is making itself known because it is an issue that you came here to learn and resolve. It’s your subtle reminder of these issues and to lead you where you need to go to settle those issues. Start looking for repeating patterns in your life. You may not be in touch with your guides, but they are working with you all the time leading you into situations where you will be confronted with the issues you came here to face.

Illustration Example

Here’s an example of what I mean. Let’s say that you travel with a group of friends who like to drink and party. You’ve observed that some of them have a problem with drinking, but you think that it really can’t be that serious and you sort of dismiss it.

You can drink socially, and you have gratefully observed that drinking alcohol doesn’t impair you in any way. You are careful never to drink while driving and you can stop after a couple of drinks. However, some of your friends aren’t that way because they sometimes drive when they shouldn’t and there are times they are ineffective at work because of the partying the night before.

It is obvious that your friends came here to resolve issues with alcohol. Since you don’t have an alcohol problem, why did you create them in your life? The issue is really screaming and pointing its finger at you. To figure it out, ask yourself how you interact with them when they are exhibiting alcoholic behavior.

Do you fail to recognize that alcohol is causing them problems and make excuses for it, either to yourself or to others? Do you tolerate their uncharacteristic meanness and inconsideration when they have been drinking and start blaming yourself for their bad behavior? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then your life purpose lesson is different than theirs. Your issue is to acknowledge how you react to alcoholic behavior and to resolve that reaction. 

OK, you have seen the light! You recognize that you have reacted as someone who is powerless, or a “victim” in the face of your friends’ bad alcoholic behavior. Suddenly you realize that you had the same reaction to your father’s drinking problem when you were growing up. For years after that, you lived in fear of becoming an alcoholic. But that wasn’t your issue—reacting as a victim is the issue. You also realize that you adopt this “victim” behavior in other areas of your life. It is a major “ah-ha” moment for you and it starts the work that needs to happen in order for you to stop reacting as a victim.

 “People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they’re not on your road doesn’t mean they’ve gotten lost.” – Dalai Lama

Uncovering Your Life and Purpose

Congratulations. You have moved through a major roadblock in your present life and uncovered a big component of your life purpose and plan. Recognition of the issue is about 90% of the battle. Now you can begin to work on this issue through various ways—hypnosis or vibrational healing.

But take a look at what else occurs. You now find that you chose truth over making excuses for your friends’ behavior and start to earnestly point out to them that they act very differently when they drink. Some of them react well and start to do something about it, others don’t. Those who then disappear from your life have completed their soul agreement with you—you have reminded them and they have reminded you. Those who stay in your life have more to learn, and you may have more to learn from them.

And so it goes in the complex tangle of relationships that we set up before we come to planet Earth in order to learn what we came here to learn.

Have you ever sent a text message only to have it misinterpreted by the person reading it? Happens all the time. Have you ever given a presentation that you were totally prepared for only to have it fall flat? Happens all the time. Have you ever had someone ask you something like, “Why are you mad?” when you were not at all mad? Happens all the time. (more…)

The 3 Most Important Things I Learned About Personal Growth

Avatar

When you look back on your life, what do you want to think about? Do you plan to reminisce on all of the good things that have happened and how they shaped who you are today? Or would you rather remember all of the bad decisions, challenging experiences, and mistakes made that hurt or wasted a portion of your life?

In my opinion, I think it is important to reflect on both. While it’s important to remember the hardships we’ve been through in our lives – without them we wouldn’t be where we are now. There are 3 very specific areas that I feel have helped me grow in a personal sense more than anything else in my life so far. 

These aren’t simple lessons in a book or a lecture that you can just absorb and apply to your life. These are things that I’ve learned through experience and reflection, and I’m still learning and growing today.

1. We determine how much we’re worth by what we think about ourselves, others, and life in general.

This might seem like a pretty obvious lesson in life but it’s actually one of the most important because we can determine our own worth by how we think about ourselves and the world around us. If you’re looking for success in any kind of business or social setting (dating), then I’ll tell you right now that it doesn’t matter if you have 10 billion dollars or not – people are still going to judge you based on your thoughts and beliefs alone.

What determines our value isn’t necessarily what we do with our lives (which is often based on luck) but whether or not we believe that ‘our work’ is worthy or not in some sort of grand scheme or universe. We may not always be able to control what happens in our lives, but we can always control how we value ourselves and others.

“Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better.” – Maya Angelou

2. You don’t have to change your habits or personality just because someone else doesn’t like it – their opinions are THEIRS alone.

This is another one of those lessons that people tend to pick up on a little bit late in life, but if anything that makes its importance even worse! Basically, there’s going to come a time when you’re going to meet someone who has certain expectations of you as a person…but these expectations might not be realistic due to their motivations and personal beliefs. For example, sometimes parents might expect you to be a lawyer or doctor because that’s what they believe is best for their child.

However, this isn’t the case for everyone and so maybe your passion lies in music or writing novels. In this example, if you were also pressured into becoming a doctor – then there would obviously be some kind of conflict going on within yourself as a person. You should never have to give up something that you want to do just because someone else doesn’t like it! The reason why we’re put onto this Earth is to make our own choices and go after our OWN dreams instead of letting others determine what we can and cannot do with our lives .

3. You can’t change your life until you accept that you need to make a change.

When I was younger, I thought that this lesson would be pretty obvious – but as I got older, it really made me appreciate the fact that there are always different ways of perceiving our lives. For example, if someone wants to become rich and famous one day – their mind might simply overshadow any other possibility in their head because they feel like this is what they NEED to do right now.

However, this isn’t always true within our own lives because we think about things too literally instead of having an open mind. If you want to achieve success in any kind of business or social setting (dating) then you should be willing to try out different things instead of staying in your comfort zone. If you want something, then it’s up to YOU to actually go after it – nobody else is going to give it to you!

The three lessons above are some of the main things I want to pass on to everyone because they’ve come at an important time in my life where I need to start thinking about others instead of only myself. It’s great if we can learn to love ourselves first before anything else, but that doesn’t mean you should neglect everyone around you even though they might be your friends and family members!

I can still hear the voices of my older relatives and my elementary school teachers telling me “be disciplined”, “keep at it”, to give time and energy towards what we want. As a young, impressionable child, I believed all those things because well, they made sense. They worked. And honestly, I felt like it’s the only way to flourish. (more…)
