“What is my purpose?” is a question clients often ask me because they feel that if they were living their true purpose they would not be having the problems they currently experience. And yet their problems, whatever they are in that moment, are part of their purpose. We tend to look at life purpose as something fixed, exact and unchangeable, a mysterious path which will take all of our confidence and skill to master and achieve the success, love, abundance and joy we believe it holds. And we think it is something we must learn to fit our poor, undeserving selves into, instead of an aspect of ourselves that we have control over. So when we consider our life purpose, we believe it’s the wonderful, successful, abundant and joyful life that we don’t have and once we figure out what it is, that is what we will step into. But that assumption is what keeps us from understanding and living our purpose.
The truth is, we can’t talk about purpose without first discussing many other aspects of our journey, beginning with power, and then that flows into potential and possibility, because they are all related. Do you want to know what your purpose is? The answer might surprise you.
Our life purpose is, first and foremost, healing, learning, growth and transformation, that will take us from the lower energetic vibrations that correspond to our healing, into higher ones, that move us into new levels of purpose. Everyone on the planet has a healing purpose. When we see our purpose as existing within each step of our life path, we can complete the healing and move from one level of purpose to another. And that happens when we factor the other “Ps” into the equation, potential, possibility and power.
Everything in our life is a potential, which encompasses every choice that we can make in a lifetime. While we may not make all of them, they are available to us because they are part of our field of potential. I write about this in Ascending into Miracles but the short version is, our field of potential contains everything we could want, wish for or dream about. We will never ask for anything that is not part of our field of potential because only those things that are part of it will be part of our consciousness.
For example, if you are interested in having a motorcycle, they will be part of your thoughts and what you pay attention to. Every time a motorcycle passes by your thought will be ‘I wish I had one.’ If you don’t have a motorcycle in your field of potential you would probably think about how noisy or dangerous they are. This is true of everything in our life. What we want is part of our field of potential and what we don’t even think about is not. So we can never want or ask for something that is not possible for us, when we are at its vibration.
Then we have to look at possibility because what is in our field of potential remains a possibility until we achieve its level of energetic vibration. So to have the motorcycle you want, your beliefs and thoughts must be aligned with what having one means to you. Is it something you feel you can have if you have enough money, does it represent freedom, or is it frivolous and irresponsible? Would the people in your life object if you had one and does that matter to you? Do happy, rich and successful people own motorcycles, or do they belong to people who spend their money foolishly, engage in risky behavior, or are selfish? Once you can put yourself in the energetic vibration of what that means to you, your motorcycle will appear in your life.
And lastly, but most importantly, power factors in every aspect of our purpose. Even though we can be completely unaware of it, we all have an unlimited source of power (this is the first Miracle Principle in my book, 30 Days to Everyday Miracles). And that power fuels our desire to explore our potential, energizes the possibilities and provides the completion and closure to propel us into a different level of purpose. But while we have the power we don’t always use it and instead, see ourselves as powerless, victims of our life purpose without any control over the challenges we experience as part of our life path.
Our life purpose is constantly shifting, according to our willingness and ability to be grounded in our power. We will fulfill our purpose in everything that we do, because that is an unconscious aspect of our healing journey. The people and situations who will give us the gift of healing, learning, growth and transformation will be attracted to us because they resonate with the same level of energy. Like really does attract like and opposites do not attract. Everyone in our life reflects an aspect of our energy and shares our healing purpose. The shift in our purpose corresponds to how we assimilate that energy, learn from the experience and then shift it into a greater level of fulfillment and move to a different level of purpose, if that is what we want and are ready for.
Whatever form our challenges might take, our purpose is to experience AND to overcome them. But we get stuck in the experience and think that this is our fate, our lot in life, to be at the level of energetic vibration and we cannot change. Our choice is to see this as confirmation that we really are powerless and stuck or to look for the gift of transformation. Within each moment we can find the answer to every question, they may not make sense at the time or not seem to fit together, but if we put them all together and stay focused on our true purpose, which leads us to transformation, the answers will become clear and the solution very apparent.
What’s your life purpose? To be exactly where you are and to use that experience for your personal transformation. Ascension is the process of raising our energy, shifting into new levels of energetic vibration and learning to experience life in higher dimensions. This happens when we view our purpose through the lens of potential, possibilities and power and then take each step, one at a time, to use our experience to fulfill our purpose so we can rise into ever higher levels of energetic vibration and know life beyond the third dimension, creating new levels of purpose, expanding our potential and living from the point of unlimited possibility.
