Everyone Has A Life Purpose

It is not an uncommon question to be asked as a psychic, “What is my life purpose?” Being an Akashic Medium, I am able to see the journey written but what the soul’s agenda is, always remains hidden as that is the contract between you and God.

Most people want to hear some grandiose life map they came into complete. The only purpose of that expectation would be to make you feel like somewhere along the line, you failed to complete it.

So when you break it down to just one simple sentence that encompasses all Oneness, which is you are here to learn about love, it all seems so underwhelming when you were looking for a Mother Theresa answer.

Right in front of your eyes

I think most people retain at least a glimmer of awareness of their life’s purpose within their inner being. It often feels like a leaning or an inclination that continues to pull at you. Sometimes, it’s right in front of your eyes but you don’t allow yourself to see it, like when you’re hunting for your missing keys and then discover that they’ve been right in front of you the whole time. The most important idea to embrace is that no matter what you are contributing to life, that is your purpose if it is done in love.

There are commonalities among those who find their true purpose for being. One major theme is that they aren’t very preoccupied with self-interest or in their ego-investments in what they do. How can you find your life purpose if you’re not focused on yourself? The fact is, when you’re highly focused on yourself, with getting your goals or needs met, whether in your work or relationships, your purpose becomes obscured. Your ego covers it, like clouds blocking the sun. Self-interest, or ego, is part of being human, and is always a stumbling block but can be pushed aside.

The consequences of not making the effort in finding your purpose include chronic, lingering dissatisfaction; an absence of inner peace and a sense of not being fully in sync with your inner self. That’s because your true inner self knows that your life purpose is out of sync with your outer life. The self-absorbed life of only being focused on getting and obtaining is a false self but you’ve identified with it because it’s been so rewarding to your ego, so it’s hard to let go of it.

Questions to ask yourself

Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to see if you feel you are contributing to your life purpose or fulfilling it in the way it was laid out for you. Regardless, if you are only accomplishing a few of the goals, you are still on purpose if the energy behind it is love.

  1. What makes you smile? Pursue them with love, whether they be activities, people, events, hobbies, projects.
  2. What are your favorite things you did in the past? Are you still doing them?
  3. What activities make you lose track of time? Getting lost in doing something you love, there is no time.
  4. What makes you feel great about yourself?
  5. Who inspires you most? Which qualities inspire you, in each person?
  6. What are you naturally good at? (Skills, abilities, gifts etc.)
  7. What do people typically ask you for help in?
  8. If you had to teach something, what would you feel qualified to teach others about life?
  9. What would you regret not fully doing, being or having in your life?
  10. You are now 90 years old, sitting on a rocking chair outside your porch. You are blissful, happy and pleased with the wonderful life you’ve been blessed with. Looking back at your life and all that you’ve achieved and acquired, all the relationships you’ve developed; what would matter to you the most? List them out.
  11. What were some challenges, difficulties and hardships you’ve overcome or are in the process of overcoming? How did you do it?
  12. What causes do you strongly believe in or connect with?
  13. If you could get a message across to a large group of people, what would your message be about life?
  14. Assessing your talents, passions and values, which one of these resources could you use to serve, to help or to contribute?

Susan Z’s Verdict

Whatever life script we have written for ourselves, even the smallest kindness will not be discounted or taken for granted. Sometimes we write a grand scaled life where our contributions make world impact but mostly our scripts are about a representation of love. If baking cookies for and giving cold water to the men who are repaving your driveway on a hot summer day sounds insignificant, rethink it. For that small action falls right in line of living your life’s purpose; love, service, concern and caring. It doesn’t always have to be about trying to feed all the homeless, clean up the oceans or some major world contribution. Mostly it is about the small accumulated acts of kindness we share with each other. Now that is what’s called a major life purpose!
