I’ve personally been searching for my “higher purpose” for a long, long time. I felt like if I could just figure out what my purpose is, then I could start doing my work! (maybe you can relate?!)
After the onset of my spiritual awakening, a dark night of the soul, and years of deep healing + soul-searching, I’ve humbly discovered that our “purpose” is not actually a thing, but rather a FEELING.
It’s more about WHY we do something, rather than WHAT we do.
If you, too, have been searching for your soul’s purpose, you may have found yourself asking questions like:
- What is my soul’s purpose?
- What am I supposed to be doing?
What I’ve discovered is the way we inquire about our soul’s purpose is what actually keeps us STUCK.
The key is to make a small shift in the way we ask the question, by replacing “WHAT” with “WHY” and “HOW.”
Here are some examples:
- Why do I want to know what my soul’s purpose is?
- How do I want to feel on a daily basis?
- How can I serve humanity with what I know right now?
If you really think about it… the reason WHY we’d want to do anything in life is because we believe it will help us feel a certain way. And what I believe most of us want to feel more often is LOVE, FREEDOM, JOY, HAPPINESS, PEACE, and FULFILLMENT.
So what we actually want is to feel positive feelings more often!
To be able to wake up HAPPY, EXCITED, and INSPIRED every morning knowing we get to do what we LOVE and feel PASSIONATE about… and that we get PAID to do what we LOVE!
That being said, I believe we all have the same purpose: to feel JOY in all that we are and all that we do!
And what we are actually inquiring about is our soul’s unique mission… which aligns more with the “WHAT” questions:
- What is my work?
- What am I helping people do?
- What’s my business model?
- What are my products and services?
- What is the unique value I bring to the table?
- What makes me different?
Your soul’s mission is your work and what you came to this planet to do.
And your soul’s purpose is to simply BE who you truly are. The fullest expression of your soul!
I have found that the first step to discovering your soul’s purpose and unique mission is to first identify what you LOVE and feel PASSIONATE about and then just start doing more of that!
The rest of the details will unfold from there. 🙂
