I spent my whole life searching for my purpose.
I lived in Roadrunner Mode – darting from my soul-less job, to meaningless rendez-vous with friends, to the latest romantic intrigue that didn’t fulfil me. Never stopping to reflect or connect.
Don’t get me wrong, there were good times but I wasn’t living a meaningful life. None of it really mattered to me.
Subconsciously I was searching for my real purpose here – something that would fill my soul with a sense of deep contentment and authenticity.
Then the Universe delivered. My world came crashing down. In 2012 the events that unravelled propelled me into a state of consciousness in which I knew exactly what I was meant to be doing here.
I followed the below 8 steps to get from where I was to where I am right now. These steps too will deliver you to finding your purpose in life.
1. Follow your joy
We each have a unique purpose here, and we realise it by connecting to our joy.
You see, our true state of being is in fact a state of happiness and complete bliss.
The more you follow your joy, the more you will connect with where you come from, who you really are, and your purpose in life.
2. Don’t try and figure it out
People drive themselves crazy thinking about what their purpose is. They go round and round in circles trying to find the big truth.
But they are looking in the wrong place. It is not in the mind. It is in the heart.
3. It’s all about the FEELING
Just listen, freely and openly to what feels good to you. Write it down.
Everything. Pages and pages of it.
Whatever you have written down, whether it is ice-cream, nail painting, or being loving, it is important. Each and every one will lead you to the treasure.
4. Do it every day
Begin using your inner joy gauge every day. It’s right there in your heart.
Connect every day to what feels good. Every single day.
If someone calls you to make an arrangement, if you are querying taking a break, if you are considering a new career path.
What feels good?
5. Be single-minded
Don’t listen to yourself or anyone else who tells you to do anything that does not align with following your heart.
Negative beliefs will crush your joy if you let them.
Commit 100% to following the good feelings and I promise you will end up where you want to be.
6. Make yourself a promise
Promise yourself EVERY SINGLE DAY when you wake up that you will focus on following your joy.
Setting your intention at the start of the day is very powerful. Anything that feels good, do it, say it, make it.
7. Be open to the new abundance that blossoms in your life
Be open to the new – the new opportunity that arises, the new person you meet, the new hobby you take up.
It’s all leading you where you need to go.
8. Have the courage
Sometimes what makes us feel good is also frightening.
Step right up to the edge of the cliff. Take a deep breath and jump.
Enjoy the ride because a pink fluffy cloud is waiting to catch you at the bottom.
What Happens When You Don’t Follow Your Joy
If you do not follow your joy, the Universe will deliver a ‘Wake Up’ event in your life. The more you don’t listen, the more painful these events become.
So start following your joy now. Whatever feels good is where you are meant to be.
Joy Will Transform You Into Who You Were Born To Be
Once you start living more of your joy you will begin to feel as though you are living a more authentic ‘you’.
The better it all feels, the more you know you are doing it right – you are cottoning on to something real and profound.
You are cottoning on to the abundance of life and your authenticity – what you were born to do.
This is what it means to truly love yourself; to live authentically in a state of joy. By embracing your good and moving away from pain, you honour yourself.
You Have a Gift For The World
I don’t know you. I don’t know what amazing thing you were born to do, but I am excited about it.
If you follow your joy you will give the world a gift greater than you could ever have imagined.
By following your joy, you love yourself and the world will love you for it.
So, what feels good to you?
With all my love,
