What are you willing to sacrifice to feel better?

If you don’t make any changes, you will not change how you are feeling.  The life you are living is yours and yours alone.  Don’t live it to please everyone around you!  If you find yourself to be the people pleasing kind, then this message is for you.

If you are finding yourself stuck in your career or relationship, consider this to ponder; what makes YOU happy?  What do you like about them and what don’t you like?  When focusing on what you want or don’t want in this experience, have you considered what your life’s purpose is? We typically ask this question when we feel stuck and confused in our career or relationship and feel the need to figure out our life’ purpose.

What Is Your Life’s Purpose?

When you feel happy about life and love and are enjoying it in the moment, I think you have found your life’s purpose – to be happy.

Discovering your life’s purpose is self-work that you will need to do on your own. It’s a soul-search adventure of sorts. It may take some meditation and connection with your higher self to complete this task. We are all spiritual beings, having a human experience. You will need to master both mental and physical life experience to find prosperity and your life’s purpose. This is the definition of true wealth. Our experience in a material world, is merely a reflection of our inner happiness. This is when we experience a feeling of overwhelming love and when our soul is expressing our life’s purpose through love, joy, and gratitude. Once we have achieved this happiness, we can not only find our happiness, but will be in a better place to just be.  The importance of the focus on happiness is to remember that where intention goes, energy flows. Meaning, if your attention is just on pleasing others, you may not find the happiness that goes with it. Happiness is a big part of life’s meaning, so let’s shift focus to finding your life’s purpose.

Your life’s purpose is not a thing to be defined, it is a state of being. It is not a what, it is a how. You are living your life’s purpose by being you and by expressing your soul’s purpose through happiness. Our life’s lessons are about learning how to create and express our soul’s purpose through its uniqueness. Further, there is a difference between your life’s purpose, your soul, and your ego’s intention. So, while your life’s purpose is to be happy and allow this energy to flow through you, the human experience is to figure out how the soul and the ego’s intentions can work together. Your soul has gifts and intention. The ego’s intention is survival and safety. Its natural behavior is to protect you from being eaten. So, it learns to adapt to the environment.  You may limit your happiness by being trapped in the fears created by your ego, to keep yourself safe.  You may also limit your potential for true happiness in the process, so you need to learn when ego has taken over and is controlling your actual success at feeling happy.

Your ego will begin to allow fears to surface as a result of your new awareness of the subconscious thought patterns.  When you learn to identify the fears as you take steps to finding your true happiness, you will uncover who you are and what you are meant to be – your individualism. I find it helpful to write in a journal about your specific situation that makes you feel stuck or unable to move forward towards your happiness.

Your ability to find your happiness depends on a variety of factors, one being awareness of your feelings around the experience. How does your heart feel about this obstacle?  Can you identify any feelings of freedom, love, or joy around what you are doing or experience in your career or relationship? These pure forms of feeling are how your soul expresses its purpose.

When meditating you might ask yourself, “What would I do if I knew I could not fail”? Repeat this in your mind several times as you sink into meditation mode. When you finish the meditation, take a moment to jot down the ideas that came to you. If you are new to meditation techniques, you can find lots of information on the Internet, including meditation music and binaural beats, to help you get started. The benefits will be rewarding.

Today, I want to help you to find your happiness and discover your life’s purpose. I know that you have heard the saying that there’s a silver lining in every situation. That is, if you are able to look at your situation with an outsider’s perspective, there is an opportunity you are being faced with right now at this crossroads on your life’s journey. Which path are you going to take? The one less traveled, to greatness, or the worn-out path you may continue to cycle through until you are ready to make the leap?

Another helpful step is to make your declaration of happiness and remind yourself of it by putting it out to the Universe and writing it down.  When you are in a state of gratitude about the happiness you have all around you will begin to attract similar happiness in other areas of your life.   Do the work to clear away the disbelief and make the commitment to yourself and your future to believe in yourself. Next, you need to take action and figure out how to remove any obstacles in your way. So, what are you waiting for? What do you want? Dream big, because your dreams don’t need to be realistic, they just need to be yours from within!

 

After you have done the work and have a clearer vision for your life’s purpose and happiness, you need to stay true to yourself and surround yourself with all that serves you in this purpose.  This may be a difficult process for some, but when you figure it out and it all makes sense, you will be well on your way to living your life’s purpose and achieving your happiness.
