Have you ever considered that you have a “soul” purpose? A unique reason for your existence that once discovered will allow you greater happiness and peace?
I pondered those questions a few years back when I began to address a feeling that I’d had for many years that something in my life was missing. An important piece to my “life puzzle” was lost and I couldn’t identify what it was. The feeling was perplexing and frustrating at the same time. On the surface I had a good life, a happy marriage, wonderful children, financial stability, and strong faith. So the question was why was this feeling continuing to plague me?
I needed to find answers, so I began a journey of sorts. Or rather the journey initiated itself once I stopped looking outside myself for the answers and began to look within.
How do you do that, you ask? Well there is really no one way to do it. You have to find what works for you; meditation, yoga, Tai Chi, being out in nature, or whatever allows you to escape from your everyday thoughts. Artistic endeavors can also be a way of separating yourself from your ego for a while. Quiet you mind and begin to listen to the wisdom from within. This wisdom is available to everyone, and if you practice and exercise a little patience you’ll soon to realize that your world is much more than your 5 senses.
Once you identify with your “higher-self” (your soul) you can begin to ask some of those perplexing questions. The response may come as a thought, an opportunity, through another person, in something you read, etc. The universe has a wonderful way of supplying the answers you seek in surprisingly, creative ways.
For me, the answers to many of my questions came through my guardian angel, whom I met most unexpectedly. I write about this experience in my manuscript “Angels, My Soul and Me” which I hope to have published sometime later this year. I was encouraged to keep a journal of my experience so I would simply sit at my computer, say a prayer, clear my mind and begin typing. Sometimes I had questions, other times I just let the thoughts flow freely.
At one point I asked the question many of us ponder, what is my soul purpose? I have to admit that I didn’t get a full blown answer that first night. The universe knew better than to give me the entire picture at once. But, I have been given signs and encouragement to follow a distinctive path. A path that is verified by the passion I feel everyday in following it.
I’ll be the first to admit that walking your spiritual path isn’t always easy. Nothing worthwhile is. There will be times of great accomplishment and times when you’ll fall flat on your face. Part of learning is experiencing a whole range of successes and failures. What’s important is what you choose to do with what you have learned. You can use it to make you stronger, or you can allow yourself to be defeated.
You are never alone as you walk your path. You are divinely guided and when you ask for assistance it is always given. The more you open up to your possibilities, the more you become aware of your Divine guidance.
One form of guidance is through the Angelic Realm. Working with your guardian angels is a wonderful place to start, but if you are in need of a stronger influence I would recommend Archangel Michael. He is the leader of the Archangels and the angel to make contact with when desiring to know your soul purpose.
Michael’s energy is strong and protective, and he can remove fear and lower energies that may be keeping you from embarking on your soul journey. Simply ask Michael to assist you and begin to work with him every day. You will soon see the pieces of a beautiful puzzle coming together and forming an image of your life. This is your soul coming into view, the most perfect part of you.
Over time following your soul’s path will bring you peace, joy and a sense that your presence on this earth is important. You are significant and a part of something greater.
Little did I know seven years ago that discovering my soul purpose would lead me to where I am. I’ve written a manuscript, started Earth Angel Design.com, and have finally freed myself of the feeling that my life isn’t complete.
My wish for you today is that you will begin to answer the beckoning of your soul. Ponder your importance and ask your soul to impart its words of wisdom. The journey will at times be trying, but in the end you will live a more purposeful and meaningful life.
Sending you good thoughts for peace and happiness as you journey through life.
