I was recently asked by a friend, "What is the purpose of life?"
Well up until 2012, I wouldn't have been able to tell you. I was just trying to survive my daily life and that was my MAIN focus.
I was just trying to understand why my relationship fell apart and I was trying to process my choice to leave my marriage. I knew my choices were for the betterment of my 3 kids, though there were days I struggled to understand why I was going through it. In my past, I had never looked toward the future with the thought of being a divorced single parent. So I was not prepared and had a lot of questions. I wondered, “What is the purpose of my life?”
I came to find the answer to that question and many more as I was given some time to be alone. Through meditation, I came to understand my purpose in my kids’ lives and the people I interact with every day. Through reading and divinely guided answers, I came to understand the true purpose of life. The answer is simple, yet full of layers and has deep meaning as it is inspired by God.
----The purpose of human life is......To Remember.--------
To remember that we are all spiritual beings who are all part of a bigger plan.
By remembering who we truly are, we can remember where we came from and come close to remembering what TRUE DIVINE LOVE feels like.
And by remembering what TRUE DIVINE LOVE feels like, we will see the world around us in a different light; it will change how we interact with others and it will transform life as we know it. We will find the ability to see the world through GOD’s eyes.
Can you remember a time when you just wished a warm, loving moment would not end?
Perhaps it was at a wedding ceremony, or in the room where a baby was born. Do you remember the excitement and joy that filled the air? Take yourself back to that “TV moment” when it seemed like time stopped and all the hopes and possibilities of the future were untouched by reality as you stared in amazement at that miraculous newborn. Can you feel that moment of divine greatness in your heart when all that really matters is the miracle of life?
Remembering those moments of love throughout life and allowing yourself to feel happy or unconditionally loved, will open a door in your heart and mind that will set you on a search to find your passion and so much more. You’ll begin to understand your history as a spiritual being and why you are on this planet called Earth. At the core of who we are, no matter what role you play in this life, we are beings of love. We inherently have love to give and receive; a connection that cannot be matched.
In your daily life, you have probably felt that “longing” feeling; that feeling that you should be doing something else in your career or you wonder why you feel so passionate about a certain topic or cause in your life. That longing is your soul being pushed along its “preplanned path” so that you can accomplish the goals YOU set before you were even born.
The Purpose of Life (The Layers)
We are here to REMEMBER, ACCEPT, PRODUCE, LEARN, and REMEMBER.
Remember… that you are a Spiritual Being in a Physical Body. You are playing a role in this lifetime.
Accept… the reality that you are a spiritual, energetic, vibrational, all loving divine light with limitless possibilities inside of you.
Produce…. the actions that will help you meet your preset life goals (your current life purpose).
Learn… from your actions, others, and the challenges in life.
Remember… when the time comes to leave, that you made a difference. You changed the vibrational path of this planet, just by being YOU.
The Bigger Picture
Earth Experiment (The Universe(ity)
The Earth is a unique planet, as we know; there is not another one like it in our solar system. Its creation is part of an experiment within this vast universe. Your brave soul has signed up to attend this elite Earth University. The life you are currently living is the “course” you are taking. As this course of life progresses, you are getting first hand lessons on developing innovative solutions to the challenges of life.
The spiritual world (home) that we came from is perfect and in that world we knew how to function with Love, Respect, and Honoring each other without even thinking about it. So by putting a “veil” over our memories of home, we are able to be fully involved in this course we are taking at Earth University. This is not an easy course. We are the dreamers, pioneers, risk takers, and the brave souls who dare to attend this University. Our reprieve from this difficult course comes in those moments of divine love, happiness, honor, truth, and respect that feel throughout life that remind us of our perfect home.
While you are here, you may find that many souls are taking a similar course as you are, but everyone will have a different approach, individual desires, and lessons to learn while here. The basic agreement we all have while here is that we volunteered to be pioneers in working with different and negative energy. This is possible because we are away from our “perfect” home. Due to our memories of where we came from- being veiled, we can focus on working through the challenges related to our egos.
Our spiritual goal at Earth University is to develop ways of working with the ego and negative energy. This skill will be very useful when we finally have the ability to regularly explore space. Every soul volunteered to be here. The knowledge gained from this experiment is for your soul’s individual growth and the knowledge adds to the bigger picture. No person, animal, or object is mistakenly placed.
Before we signed up for this “Life Course” we each met with our counselors (Angelic guides) and laid out our individual life plans. The guides/angels are then assigned to each of us to make sure we each meet our goals. Our free will while here is one challenge that can push us a little off course. They do everything they can to keep us on our paths.
The reason we need their help is because by agreeing to be a part of this experiment, we agreed to not remember (be “veiled” from) what perfect spiritual beings we really are, so we can figure out new ways to be creative and handle the challenges of this world/universe. If we lived on earth as our true perfect whole souls, we would not learn because we would already know what the best path in life is.
Our spiritual intuition is the tool used to connect us to our guides.
As we grow up and progress through life, our divine guidance counselors provide us with signs and questions that make us think, such as, “What is the purpose to life?"; so that we search for the answers and look for the path that gives us peace and joy (the key to connecting with home and remembering who we are). The searching and finding the answers helps to keep us on our life path so we can find who we are meant to be in order to complete our puzzle piece/course.
We start out as babies of God, then as the age 2 rolls around; we are wholeheartedly grounded and connected to this planet and start learning the ways of this lifetime. As toddlers through teenage years, we are influenced in certain ways by the family we chose to raise us, by the culture we chose, and by the level of learning we wanted to be challenged by. We chose to go through these blind lessons so we could learn and take those experiences to help others. Hopefully, as we get older, we start asking questions about the purpose of life or start reevaluating life; and if we are too stubborn, then we are provided with a midlife crisis; to assist us in staying true to our life path (course).
Everyone’s purpose and course work will be different, yet similar. Two people can have the same upbringing and background, but will have a different experience and make different choices due to free will. So no 2 lives will be exact, just similar. You are unique and your perspective is needed.
When you stop, listen, take the time to learn from the things you have been through and pay attention to the path God wants you to notice, then you will find your individual purpose.
An example is being born into a family that has issues to confront and some cycles to break, such as a family of abuse (physical or verbal). It is passed down from generation to generation until someone stops it. It may be your job to acknowledge all the pain, guilt, and remorse of the family choices and release it all. By standing up and not continuing the cycle, you are freeing your family from the continued pain associated with the abuse. You chose to stop the cycle! Bravo to you!
Your purpose can be huge and affect millions or your soul purpose can be to change 1 life, yours.
Know that whatever you believe to be your purpose will be acknowledged by random people, animals, or things that God sends you to let you know you are on the right path.
So follow the promptings and...
write that book;
love someone that feels unworthy;
guide someone with a gentle hand;
be that best friend for life;
be that friend, just for a moment;
be the constant foundation for a family or relationship;
be at the right place at the right time - (it can change a person’s life).
Your purpose could be a small but necessary moment in your life or someone else’s.
How to find it?
Ask. -Just ask. -Ask God and his angels to show you what your purpose is.
Then be open to seeing and accepting the answer. You will KNOW the answer when you are in a moment that gives you joy or peace and you suddenly recognize that moment for what it is.
You will notice the peace, warm heart, a sense of calm, and possibly tears come.
Notice what it is that made you feel that way. It's a moment of pure heaven on earth that you will recognize. Then ask for more clarification.
I found my purpose, when I asked the questions. My answers were given to me immediately! God doesn't waste time!
God just needs YOU to ask. The heavens will not interfere with this university because of free will! We must ask for guidance. Look to the heavens as your professor/parent, ask the questions and be ready for the answer.
This blog is just the beginning to my purpose. It's for those of you who are reading it right now at this time. You have been guided to it. The bigger plans I know will come very soon in my life- yes scare me. I feel overwhelmed at the possibilities. But, I do know, I would not be put in a position to serve a purpose that I am not fit for. So I will trust God. I won't question what feels right in my heart.
If you have that warm feeling, if you feel your guard is down, if you shed that tear, then don't let your mind get in the way.
Notice what made you feel that way and embrace it. Work with it daily till you feel confident it is exactly what your purpose is.
As you are working into fully understanding your purpose, you will step back to the old comfortable things, people, and situations you have known for so long. That is expected. Transitioning to a new, unknown life is exactly that- a transition. Allow yourself to falter and don't beat yourself up for it. Accept it and continue to move forward. Eventually, you will have put enough time and experience between you and your old self that you won’t look back with a desire for the old. You'll just be excited for the new.
The purpose of life is an individual walk in this lifetime for every single soul on this planet. Every single soul serves a purpose specific to their growth and to a bigger picture. Your purpose can be found just by asking God to show you.
There is an amazing angelic phrase I came across and have used for the last couple years. It is a saying that carries so much heavenly weight. It's mightier than can be imagined. You can say it for anything as simple as asking for a parking space to as heavy as "What's my purpose?”
You can read about hundreds of amazing stories that have been brought about by this saying in the book: The Gentle Way.
Simply recite the words: "I request the Most Benevolent Outcome...." Then add what you would like and then allow God to take it from there.
Example: I request the most benevolent outcome to understand my purpose in this lifetime and ask for all the assistance to help me live my purpose, may it be better than expected. Thank you.
Talk to God, but then be sure to open up and listen for the answer. Find a quiet space and just practice sitting in silence a little each day, or walk in nature, let your feet be grounded to the earth. The best lessons are learned by just listening to your heart.
God only wants the best for his brave children. Ask for assistance to find your purpose and know you will get an answer.
Accept the challenge of what it may be, because you are meant to do it.
Much Love and Purpose.
