Have you ever felt lost? Like you don't know what you were meant to do in this life? Like you have soooooo much potential but you don't know where to pour this energy into to?
I've been there.
I don't know about you dear reader, but for me, this caused the deepest heart ache. Which left a chronic emptiness at the bottom of my soul.
What is my life purpose?
To try and find my life purpose— I completed different educational degrees and certificates, experimented with different jobs in multiple industries from fitness to sales, and backpacked around the world for three years. My prime pursuit? Discovering who I was and what I was meant to do.
It wasn't until I came back to Canada, and the depression set in. I was turning 30 in a week, I had experienced the world full throttle, and despite all these marvelous memories and exposure to compelling cultures— I still didn't know what I wanted to do with my life.
Thankfully, after a decade of searching, I received a "calling" to become a counsellor. Which illuminated me in light after a very dark week post 30th birthday. From then on, that missing puzzle piece, felt complete.
This post is for all of you who know that you have more to offer the world, but you don't know what it is yet. This post if for the millions of people out there who feel purposeless, but know they were put on this earth for a reason.
I came across Dr Carolyn Myss about 15 years ago. She is an internationally renowned medical intuitive, speaker, teacher, and author. In this soul warming talk, with Oprah on Super Soul Sunday, Carolyn Myss shares how to tap into your intuition and discover your life's purpose.
She believes there is no one here on earth that doesn't have a path, "if you have life, you have purpose". I love how she helps to reframe some of the lostness or stuckness we can feel; such as, "you've never lost your purpose, you had your life focused on a path that didn't belong to you...."
In this episode, Carolyn Myss details three daily practices to help you hone in on your true purpose. And offers a list of telltale signs that you are fulfilling your life potential.
It's a podcast, so kick up your feet and drink in her wisdom. Or heck— if you don't have time— put her on in the background while you're doing your chores!
