Your soul purpose is very simple, let’s not overthink this.
It’s to be the best version of yourself, to show up in your authentic self.
People talk about love, your purpose is love. Well this IS the biggest form of love there is: to love yourself enough be fully yourself, to fully express yourself, to stop hiding. When you do this magical things happen: you attract more love, you spread more love, you vibrate higher, you achieve more, you are more sparkly.
Your purpose is this, only this. Your job, your career, your achievements are just the things you use to DEMONSTRATE all of this. Obviously you are going to be the best version of yourself when you do something you enjoy, but beyond that it doesn’t really matter. There isn’t ONE grand thing you are meant to be doing.
Phew, that’s a relief! You’re not in the wrong place, you’re not doing the wrong thing. Because quite frankly, it doesn’t matter. It’s not about that.
So most of you: you’re already living your purpose, you may just need to step it up a little.
Try the following exercise to get to the heart of living your purpose:
- Close your eyes. Take 5 deep long breaths in through your heart centre. Bring all of your awareness into your body.
- Think of someone you admire, a friend, a historical figure, a celebrity for example.
- List the QUALITIES you admire in them. Is is fearlessness, friendliness, loving, kind, compassionate, assertive, spending time with their kids, good at business?
- Bring these qualities into your everyday life. EMBODY them. You don’t have to do anything different, anything grand. Just live the values that are important to you. Right now, in the life you already have.
THIS is your purpose. And when you do this, in every moment, your life changes.
Let’s not overthink it.
