Before you were born into your current life, your soul designed a plan – the essence of what you are to accomplish this lifetime. How do you fulfill this plan? Through your soul purposes. Yes, I said purposes. The misnomer that each of us has a single purpose and that we\’re destined to be miserable until we find it is ridiculous. It’s time to toss the books, blogs, and articles that claim to have the formula to discovering your one true purpose and look at how you are already living your plan. The Akashic Masters are excited to help!
Can you have more than one purpose?
What exactly is a purpose? Many think of it as a divine job description – entrepreneur, artist, healer – when what’s important are the gifts and talents you\’ve accumulated from numerous lifetimes. Specific paths you\’ve chosen in other lives may be a piece of how you do things this time, but they don\’t necessarily equate to one single path.
You can use your many abilities in multiple ways. The fallacy that you must fit them like a jigsaw puzzle into one neat package is absurd. Humans are curious creatures, and it doesn’t honor our nature not to explore all the things that inspire us and be open to employing our talents in arenas that show up, even if we originally had no interest in them.
What I\’ve discovered, both from my own journey, as well as supporting others on theirs, is that most of us have multiple purposes that support our Soul Plan.
Finding YOUR Life Purposes
You may already be living in a way that is aligned with your Life Purposes and just don’t recognize it. Many of us wait for that bolt of lightning or prop our eyes open so we don’t miss the special message that reveals this mysterious secret. That’s not the way it happens.
There are three environments in which we live our Life Purposes – work, family, and relationships. If you can’t imagine that your current job is already a part of your purpose, I encourage you to examine your work from a different perspective.
A client once came to me asking about his soul purpose, part of which he believed was to share love and wisdom with the people in his life. He couldn’t fathom how his job in IT was related. When we dug deeper, he became clear that the ability to lead his team with compassion and wisdom fulfilled part of his life purpose. His gift of leadership was just being used in a way he hadn’t recognized.
What you do for a living is nowhere near as important as how you operate in any given situation. The question is, are you at the highest and best that you can be today? This includes your relationships as well. The way you’ll know that you are acting in a way aligned with your life purposes is because you experience peace and contentment inside.
If you’re curious about your purposes, take a week or so and fill in the chart below. When you’ve finished, look for the patterns. The characteristics that overlap all three environments show you where you’re already living the life you were meant to live.
Some people want to make the concept of living their soul purpose complex and hard to find, but the path is there if you look. Using the gifts that come to you naturally and easily are the foundation of your Life Purpose; to uncover and share them is an ongoing journey.
Forget the “how”
Because you have more than one purpose, you may find that you are fulfilling one or more, at any given time. It’s a path, not a destination. It expands and grows as you do. The other aspect I remind people of is not to be attached to the environment where your purpose is fulfilled.
I know so many people who determined they needed to accomplish their passions in a specific way. If one of your purposes is to minister, it’s important to remember you don’t need a pulpit to do that. You can minister to co-workers, friends, strangers. Cut the ties to expectations about where your purpose is achieved, and it will open the door for you to express that purpose in ways you cannot imagine.
Discover your Soul Plan
The best way I’ve found to discover your Soul Plan is working with Akashic Records. One way to access them is through meditation (there are two complementary meditations on my site. www.AkashicKnowing.com). Finding a state of mind without thought provides the opportunity for messages from the Akashic Masters to come through.
If you feel driven to uncover your Soul Plan, I will offer you this. The journey is just as important. If what you’re doing with your life, if the people who surround you, bring you joy, is that enough? To me, that is the best indicator that you are fulfilling your plan, regardless of what it is. Uncovering your intended path, a step at a time is your real purpose. Enjoy the process!
