Many children have a clear understanding, before they begin to adapt themselves into roles they perceive as ‘useful’ or ‘respected’ as to what their Life Purpose is on a soul level. They will have an instinctive pull towards a way of being, an expression of their own unique self that when manifesting in either an attitude of compassion, kindness, enthusiasm, or desire to create change, could guide them towards relationships or professions that honor that innate impetus. As adults, many people seek to understand and reunite with their core self, their inner wisdom that ‘understands’ what their Life Purpose in this present incarnation is. Some ways of seeking can be found through meditation, prayer, or alone time in nature. Other ways may be through fostering relationships that encourage a vital sense of life, connections to the world and others, and offer opportunities for an expanded sense of personal freedom and empowerment.
I have long been intrigued by different cultures perception of adulthood. The varying ceremonies, initiations or age markers of adulthood are as varied as the landscapes that bloom across our wondrous planet. There are many ways in the physical world to celebrate a shift from adolescence or childhood to a member of society as a contributing adult. In my perception, adulthood is not marked by a particular age number, but rather a shift in perception between ‘what can the world do for me?’ shifting into ‘what can I do for this world?’ Adulthood in my perception is a shift in consciousness that allows for a realignment with one’s Life Purpose on the particular Soul Path our present incarnation is offering.
To become an adult in this incarnation I had the realization, that what I was seeking in the external world, a desire to feel energetically accepted, and ‘allowed’ to express myself, was the gift I could offer others, and encourage in the world around me. I yearned to be accepted as a highly sensitive soul, yet it was my own self acceptance and the following acceptance of others, that brought about personal healing and peace. I decided I would love the aspects of myself that I sought others to accept, and through this self love, I would also love aspects of all those that I encountered that resonated at their personal Soul level, and present incarnation as gifts. I shifted from seeking an environment that would nurture my internal and etheric landscape, to actively encouraging others to allow their energy selves to be enriched, empowered, and blossoming. Through this transformation in personal consciousness, I suddenly felt that I was more clearly supported on the etheric level by my own team of spirit guides, angels, ascended masters helping me in this present incarnation, and connection to the Divine. I also found that the relationships I had yearned for in friendships, coworkers, and family all began to change in a manner that supported my self empowerment. My internal landscape of wanting a world that was spiritually attuned to co-creating peace, became a personal landscape in both the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual plane that is very rich with feelings of Divine Love.
My Life Purpose feels grounded in this incarnation as through sharing gifts with others, I am able to nurture and celebrate my own gifts. If you are seeking to connect with your Life Purpose on a soul deep level, in this present life, some of the ways of reconnected with the flame of self, the inner wisdom that is carrying this knowledge, is to have an honest conversation with yourself about what it is you are constantly seeking in this physical reality. Have you often reached for a book and wished for a story that taught about Divine love and healthy relationships? Perhaps your journey involves writing such a book. Have you been seeking a community that sustains you through environmental practice, community gardens, and natural food sharing? Perhaps your gifts are meant to be used to create such a group. Are you seeking to see children raised with consciousness and self love through healthy body awareness? Perhaps it is time for you to volunteer or lead children in a way that teaches them such things. Are you yearning for a job with security and a strong manager and boss? Perhaps it is time to consider what you would need to learn and begin to become such a boss or manager for others. Have you wanted friendships that encourage you to take chances to change things in your life for the better and introduce new spiritual or medicinal practice? Now could be the time where you take a course, teach a course, or start those conversations with loved ones. Are you looking for role models that are kind, strong, healthy and sober? This is your time to be a role model with a compassionate understanding of the struggles it takes to be an adult with those qualities.
Soul Purpose and Life Purpose are often related to assisting the world to evolve in a manner that encourages a connection between humanity based on Love, Kindness and Compassion. There are thousands of different actions, professions and relationships that can explore and celebrate these qualities in a way that resonates with joy, for each individuals life purpose and present incarnation. Through identifying the passion you have carried through this life walk, that which you have yearned for, and beginning to manifest it by taking action towards personally implementing these changes and qualities, we all graduate from adolescents beings, to adults and connected Souls.
A prayer that I have found useful and I offer as a tool for others is:
“Dear Divine God/dess, universal force of creation, please send me the light and assistance I need at this time to implement the changes I have been seeking in my life, as a gift for both myself and the world at large. Please send me the assistance and clear resonance of the Archangels and ascended masters whose clear blessings and messages aid me in personal empowerment so that I may assist others in learning to empower themselves. I ask that my Soul Purpose be a beacon of strength, courage, kindness and compassion in this world, and that through my understanding of my personal journey, I have the tools to encourage others on their journeys. Thank you, Amen, Om and Aho.”
May your self awareness, your individual light and your gifts to this world, shine forth. May you feel enlivened, impassioned, and joyful as you take the steps necessary to connect with and life, your Soul Path during this life.
with light and respect,
