Here we are again, talking about our purpose – the big question of life.
We often make finding our purpose more complicated than it is. We’re looking all the way inside overseas caves whilst our purpose is just in front of us. We expect that the reason we are here, would involve travelling the world (for some people it does), or saving lives in conflict areas (again, it is, for some). But truly, our purpose does not have to be dramatic. Our purpose is just – to live as authentic us.
And what is it, authentic us?
1. Check what do you love?
I always believe that we are down here on earth equipped with a “map”. Our soul knows where to go, we only need to listen to this inner gps system. When we are on the right road, our soul is flowing free, we feel happy, we feel alive.
2. Check what do we fear?
People who are on their path, look happy – but it does not mean that they don’t face challenges. At times, it will be challenging to choose the right path. Sometimes it is easier to stay in the comfort zone, and avoiding the discomfort to choose the authentic path. Sometimes our mind tricks us by saying that this is our intuition saying that it is not the right step. Is it? My personal trick to catch myself in this is, to ask myself if this is fear, where I feel it. Ask my heart of how I feel about choosing the brave road. Then ask my heart of how I feel about choosing the safe road. Every time, I will see it clearly after this session.
3. Always listen, and adjust.
In summary, it’s really like having a gps in the car. So we listen (or see) if in any moment we need to make a turn. Our soul is telling us this. It might come as new opportunities, it might be a negative feeling – such as disappointment, a feeling of lost, unhappiness or even a dream. Then proceed to the start again to number 1 and 2 and continue. Life is actually pretty easy. The problem is we are making it complicated with our fear and we miss the signs!
Enjoy your purpose, and have fun!
