I’ve been asked about finding purpose often. I created this video to share with you to explore the four pillars of purpose. Take a moment to watch this video, then open up your journal and following along below.
4 Pillars of Purpose
Message | What is the message that has been planted in the seed of your purpose?
Gifts | What gifts have you been given to share this message?
Called to share | Where do you feel called to share this message?
Human Upliftment – Impact | How will you impact humanity mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually?
Today I invite you to explore living with purpose. You may not have all of the answers to these questions right away. The answers are living within you and will unfold in time.
I encourage you to take a moment and smile. When you smile, life lifts the weight of suffering. When you laugh, the weights of sorrow levitates, and the magic of life shows her face. We can get tightly bound by the ways of the world. Wrapped so tightly that we feel our mission is to brace ourselves to fight our way out. At times this binding can leave us numb. Smiling from within through meditation can lift the fog. In the now, we are alive. In the now, life is precious. In the now, life is beautiful. In the now, we can smile.
Today I invite you to take a pause and breathe into a smile. Listen to the audio below. And breathe with me for 2 mins.
To reach true peace, you must forgive yourself and those around you. Especially the ones we feel have caused us great suffering. Forgiveness is a pillar of lasting peace.
Forgiveness is medicine from the soul. It is also medicine for humanity.
When we forgive from the soul, we see the light of the soul in front of us. This creates space for the human persona, behaviours and form to fall away. In the light of another is our own light, because in our light form we are one.
“I forgive you because I see the light in you that is also within me.”
Solitude is a gift. There are periods and moments when we are called to unplug and just be as we are, like a dandelion fluff moving through the sky. Sometimes life invites us just to be as we are with fewer words, simply embracing life. In the valley of solitude, we are nourished, we rest, and we grow.
I invite you to slow down, and unplug. Not just from technology but from the constant invitation to stimulation. It might be an hour, it might be half a day. It might be a day or two. Give yourself the gift of intentional solitude, something beautiful is waiting there.
Too quiet the mind is a priceless gift. You can give this to yourself. It is not exclusive to a small few or attached to a dollar sign, or whatever we determine as social status and success. When we learn to quiet the mind, it becomes easier to live and listen from the soul. When we quiet the mind, we see from within. We become less distracted by the illusions that constant stimulation equates to success. We become less distracted by the personas and open to the soul’s light.
Kids are so beautiful; they remind us to get out of our comfort zone and be playful. They remind us to take adventures, laugh, and to listen. Today’s reflection is a little personal. Yesterday my son said we should camp in the back yard. So I laughed and then quickly googled Canadian Tire/ Tent. We got in the car and purchased a $39 tent, came home and put it together. Threw the tent onto the trampoline and set up the inside with blankets, pillows and stuffed dinosaurs. We created a treetop campsite in our imaginations. Our bed time story was a journal that I wrote for him while I was pregnant. As I read the journal, he began to cry. He said, I feel so loved. I realized the gift of sleeping in nature. The gift of being present. Listening to the leaves move in the breeze, the birds singing in the morning, gazing at the stars and being present. Yesterday and most days, my son is my little guide reminding me to be open.
Today I invite you to listen to the playful child within and notice what they are asking you to explore.
Let your light be free. Let it shine brightly. As you step into your truth, you break through the bricks and shackles of the mind. As we step into walking with a knowing we are light, we step into illumination and see it within others with grace.
Affirmation: I Am light
Today I invite you to step into walking with your light, trusting that every step is illuminated.
