How to Find Your Soul Purpose

Most of us at some point in our lives have felt lost, alone, dissatisfied, stuck in a rut or trapped by work/life pressures.

  • We have felt a deep and often inexplicable sense that there is something more than the physical (and commercial) world we live in.
  • Life has thrown us a few curve balls: broken hearts, ill health, loss, fear etc. We have tried to avoid the associated pain by not thinking about it, replacing undesirable thoughts with daydreams or positive affirmations, or substituting our unwanted emotions with food, drink, shopping etc.
  • We follow society’s version of who we should be and how we should live.
  • We dim our light, or hide our true self, to fit in and feel accepted.

All these experiences are the Universe’s way of nudging us back on course, grabbing our attention, and in some cases, stopping us abruptly in our tracks. They are signs that we are sending our attention, or energy, outward rather than inward.

What is our soul purpose?

When we spend too much time in our minds and bodies, we forget to nurture our soul. As multi-dimensional (mind, body, soul and spirit) we must honour our energetic ethereal body and give it the due care and attention it deserves. When we do, we naturally align with our higher intelligence, our Ātman, the true self inside ourselves.

This is our soul purpose, it is why we are here. It’s the mission we gave ourselves as a soul for this life on earth. We are here to remember who we are, and share that with the world. The reason we can’t find our soul purpose is that we are not spending enough time with our soul self. We are too much in our mind and body.

I’ll let you into a secret. We came here already knowing who we are and why we are in this life at this time. Call it a blueprint for your life. We know this when we are very young, however, our parents, peers and society distract us from this knowing and we become disconnected from our higher self as we grow up and engage with the physical world around us.

Some people know their soul purpose early on in life, while others wake up to their calling after a life-changing or traumatic event. What I know to be true, is that there are clues scattered throughout all of our life experiences, and it is not until we send our focus inward, rather than outward, that the clues reveal themselves to us.

Our soul purpose is firstly to remember the truth of who we are, and then share that with the world. It is a feeling, rather than a physical thing. It is why we do something, rather than what we do. It can be as simple as smiling at a passer-by in the street, or as grand as trying to save the world. However we express our soul purpose, it is an energetic exchange of giving and receiving that makes us feel a certain way.
