What is Your Purpose?

What is your Purpose?

Do you know your purpose?
Do you feel despondent about not knowing what to do in your life?
Are you waiting for some miraculous dream, vision or psychic reading to show up and let you know what it is you are meant to be doing?

If so, well then today is your lucky day! Today you are going to begin to step into your purpose. You can start to gain some clarity about your purpose by answering some of these questions. Write down your responses to these questions and let your mind carry you into the vision and emotion these answers evoke.

Ask your SELF - What is it that YOU love to do? Do you love to be in nature? Do you love to be creative? Do you love to teach what you know? Do you love to tell stories? Do you love to walk the beach? What is it that you truly love to do???
Who are the people/beings you love to be with? Are they children, teenagers, animals, the wise elders?
What is it that makes you the happiest, feel the most satisfied, gratified and fulfilled? What jazzes you?
Where are the places or what are the activities that make your heart sing?
When you think about what you love to do, what feelings arise in you?
Do you feel empowered, free, giddy? Are your senses in tune with your surroundings? Do you feel at one and at peace with all that is? Do you feel connected with the true source of your spirit, your essence, your life force?

Finding and following your purpose is easy. Your purpose is always within you and around you. As you naturally do what you love to do, as you share your unique gifts in this world by simply being and doing your life your way, as you reach for that which gives you true joy - You are living your purpose.
Let today be the day you begin to see your purpose already alive and activated within you. Let today be the day you begin to step into your purposeful living.

HONORING WOMEN IN THE TIME OF ALONE

HONORING WOMEN IN THE TIME OF ALONE


So many of us are finding ourselves in the time of alone. Now, more than ever, we are living our lives without partners, romance, financial support, human touch, and the gaze of love that nurtures our spirit. There is significant lonliness in the 21st Century and women are the greatest casualties of this phenomenon.

LONLINESS

I remember reading an article in the early Nineties, which stated that more people than ever are living alone, depressed, broken hearted and dying of lonliness. It actually said that, ‘we are dying from lonliness’. It was shocking to see it on paper, but as I thought of it I could see why that would be true.

More than any other time in history we are isolated from connection, community and our sense of belonging. This is new territory for women, this time of alone, we have few role models to show us the way and many of us are navigating without a map.

ANCIENT WISDOM – THE SACRED CIRCLE

My vision for women is to begin to close the gap that separates us from our own divine selves, friendships, partnerships and supportive community relationships.

In days of old, women had the support of others built right into their villages, the sense of belonging was rarely in question. These tribes or communities offered the type of assistance that celebrated eachothers successes, shared eachothers burdens, and healed lonely hearts through collective care. {The state of lonliness was unheard of in most tribes and small villages until recent times.} In the time of alone, women need to find alternative avenues of support by opening to new options for re-creating our personal villages and communities. {It is imperative for women to realize that they don’t have to go it alone, all it takes is a baby step into a new way of thinking and showing up in the world.}

This is the age of the Goddess emerging, which means this is the age of reconnecting with the ancient wisdoms and traditions of women. For centuries, women have gathered in circles, these circles are sacred spaces of support, trust, expression, wisdom, council and comfort. A women’s circle is a place to be empowered in positive ways, and to see yourself as whole, in the eyes of another. It is a place to network and open to new possibilities, you never know who you will meet and what opportunities will arise when you step off of your island and connect with others. In our overwhelming modern day lives, taking the wisdom of the ancients could offer us one of the greatest healing balms of our lives, a place to be seen, heard, accepted, encouraged and loved. This is a gift you give yourself, find your circle today and create the connections you deeply desire.
