Do you know your purpose? Why it is that you are here, on this planet, at this time, living your life?
If your heart had a voice…. What would it say?
Spoiler alert – the answer isn’t “I Don’t Know”
This blog was originally intended to be getting passionate about your purpose and then I discovered this :-
‘most people don’t know their purpose’
The very idea that they ‘should’ know is adding anxiety to the mixing pot of an already overwhelming life.
To avoid adding any further anxiety to the planet, let’s gently play with DISCOVERING it.
One idea I’ve heard to connect with your purpose is :
*try lots of new things
*see what you love
This idea does have merit, if you have time as well as organisation and devotion to it.
OR, we could go directly to the source.
Your heart knows.
Know your purpose
The answer to finding your own purpose lies in connecting deeply into your body.
Divine intelligence pulses through your body, just as it does every flower, every tree. Just as they know how to grow, why they are here, and how to BE – so does your body.
It’s the mind that gets in the way.
You can’t ‘think’ your way to this answer.
Why discover your purpose?
Embracing your purpose opens up a whole new perspective and new way of living.
Imagine dropping all the unhelpful thoughts, then dropping the collection of masks you wear and rediscovering your true authentic and DIVINE nature…
and show up for life from that place every day.
Imagine the world if we all gave to and received from the world around us in this deep, connected way.
This is living with presence.
Totally in the present moment. Living present is really living – FEELING life’s pulse in you. That is magic.
There is a magnetic presence to being present.
In this magnetic way you can express and give your heart a voice that is loving, true, honest and totally authentic.
Deep, present moment, loving, connected presence takes practice.
Try this now.
Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths, let your breath flow in exactly the same way it was before you placed your awareness on it.
Where in your body can you feel your breath?
Let go of any physical, anatomical ideas of where you might feel it and just see what you can feel…
I’m sure with focus you can feel your breath in your nose, throat, chest and belly…
Stay with me.
Now, can you feel your breath in your hands? Can you feel it in your legs, your back, even in the space around your body?
If thoughts come in, that’s ok – they will do. Letting them drift away again without getting lost in them is the part that takes the most practice.
Take a moment also to notice the spaces in your breath. The little pause as we move from in to out, and out to in.
Do this for a few minutes each day and see whether you begin to feel your breath more completely.
It may even become more meaningful to consider where in your body you can’t feel the pulse of your breath.
Just a few minutes of conscious, intentional breathing every day is one way to practice presence.
This moment is all that is real – remember to live it.
To be here, be now, be in this moment.
As you become familiar with the feeling of connection in your body, invite your heart to speak.
Be open to the possibility of wisdom and deep truths to arise – surrendering into this space, allow and see whether anything bubbles up
Untainted by the mind, untainted by any thoughts.
This is you, the real you, the authentic you.
Learning to express ourselves from this place changes everything.
From this place nothing anyone says or does to you can shake your alignment, your centre, your balance.
It is from this place that you KNOW yourself.
Add so much fulfilment and joy to your life by embracing your purpose and knowing and expressing your beautiful, authentic self.
