Finding My Purpose in Lifeprint friendly version
What is My Life's Purpose?
How do we discover what our real purpose in life is? Remember, your life purpose usually has nothing to do with where you live, where you work, the people in your life, or even your goals or dreams. Your purpose in life is the reason that you occupy your space in this world. It's the mission you signed up for but forgot upon arrival. And yet, you know deep down you have a mission, and feel like you're wandering aimlessly waiting for it to appear . So, you may find yourself asking, what good is a mission if I don't know what it is?
Well, the fact is you DO know what it is. You just don't know that you know it (if you know what I mean). You need a little nudge to help you remember , that's all.
Your life's purpose is lodged deep, deep down, and you've probably had glimpses of it time and again, without fully realizing it. Here are some easy steps you can take to help you rediscover your lifelong purpose:
Step 3: An Exercise of the Heart and Mind
So, you've set the mood, you've removed your task list from memory (at least for now), and you're feeling open, willing, allowing - great! Next, get a piece of paper, and title it My Life Purpose Is: .
Next, start writing away - each line starting with "to..." (and your answer). Fill the blank with whatever moves you. You may feel silly at first, or you may even feel some resistance building. The point is, you want to keep writing as many answers as possible. The first few will likely be hard, because at that stage, you're still using your conscious mind to come up with the answer. The answer is not contained in your conscious mind, but in your subconscious mind. So, keep writing, until you find the answers seem to flow out of you. It WILL happen. At some point, you will break past your conscious mind, and your subconscious will take over this exercise.
When should you stop writing? You will know when to stop writing. You'll know exactly when you've nailed it - because you will be in an immense state of awe. Trust in this.
What Do I Do with My Life Purpose?
You've found your mission. It is so awe-inspiring, and you feel a sense of peace and self-revelation. So, what should you do with this information? Write down your life purpose and carry it with you, in your purse, in your wallet. Keep it somewhere that you'll see it on a daily basis. Let it become your mantra. I've worked with many people in hypnosis to find their deeper meaning in life. Sometimes, we have to get rid of a few cobwebs before we actually do this process. But once we do, the results are amazing. One of the most common responses I hear after is, "I've known this on some level all along."
Be open to how this mission can be made manifest in your daily life, in your job, in your relationships, in your community. And, most of all, be open to how your life purpose can inspire others. Living a life of purpose is as necessary as air to breathe.
I wish you much success in your journey to finding your life purpose.
