No matter what stage of life you are in, you are meant for something great. Our souls have a purpose. Awakening to that purpose is freedom. Just as the seed awakens to the purpose of becoming a flower, we are meant to awaken to what God has created for us. For the seed it happens during the change of seasons, for us it happens at the dawn of everyday.
Awakening to Your Soul's Purpose
The process of uncovering your purpose can be as challenging as the seed making its way through the dense soil. However, the difference is, without question, the seed meets the challenges of nature. It just keeps moving forward. It is not finding it's purpose, it is awakening to it. Even the months before, when it was dormant, there was no question if it could awaken to its purpose. Our purpose has been within us all along. We are not meant to find it, we are meant to awaken it. God made it part of our DNA and we're Divinely blessed with everything necessary to fulfill it.
I truly believe that everyone feels a pull towards something deeper. To begin to awaken to our purpose, we must first accept that we've been asleep. We are not alone. In this country especially, we become captive in the day to day. Many of us spend years asleep in life setting goals for jobs and a life that isn't fulfilling because that's what is expected. The light on our purpose, if it was ever lit, dimms and we fall asleep. Of course we manage. We go about our life with relative happiness from time to time. We have enjoyment, but it is feels less than because we know there is more. What we know on the inside is not what we know on the outside, but our mind creates this false sense of self.
This is our wake up call! Just as the seed would not judge itself for being asleep and dormant for the winter months, we mustn't either. In order to take the next right step, acknowledge and accept where you are right now in the moment. The challenge is peeling the layers of "life" that started covering it up many years ago. This is where Tuck the Fringe comes into play. We've Tucked ourselves long enough. No longer is it necessary or even acceptable to live our false self. What is the spark within you? Stop questioning it and let it become a light within you. Know that you are created to serve something much bigger than yourself.
Now that you are awake, where do you begin? Books? Life coaches? Where?
1. Begin today with a connection to the Divine power that you have within. Don't question it. This is your awakening. God is a big God and the purpose that is deep within is even bigger than you can image. Believe it, speak it, write it with your whole being. The enemy is lurking at every corner, in every form imaginable so you must have your power ready for battle.
2. Stay awake. It's not easy to change our patterns, but me must. Find your prayer, your mantra, your go to phrase that will jolt you back to the land of the living.
3. If you do find help in either books or people, make sure that it is to support YOUR purpose! Advice is great, but it is not mandatory to take it. Find authors that resonate with you and your belief systems. If you have support from friends, make sure their support is true. When we begin our awakening it can be challenging for others to accept. Don't let anyone steal your thunder or worse yet, force you to fall back asleep.
Today is your day! Awaken your purpose. Awaken your truth. Awaken your power. Awaken your body, mind and Spirit!
