stop trying to control your life purposeDo you ever feel like you don’t know where you are going or what direction you should be taking in life?

Everyone keeps saying look at the bigger picture. Dream Big!! Imagine what you will be doing 5 years from now. What will your career/work life/life purpose look like?

But all you can think is I don’t know what I want or how to get it!

What I am really talking about here is Life Purpose. You’re Life Purpose. You know that thing that you have come into this physical body to fulfil. The Big WHY of why you incarnated onto Earth at this time right now. There is a reason, there’s a reason for everything – right? But you can’t for the life of you figure out yours.

You’ve probably done course after course, workshop after workshop hoping that this will be a process of illumination. I mean if it doesn’t feel right once you’ve done it then surely that’s not your life purpose? So you can cross it off the list of possibilities.

So on with another workshop or course in the belief that this time it will resonate on such a deep level that you will know for sure that it’s the right thing for you. Woo hoo you’ve finally found it!! Only to realise a couple of weeks later that you hate it and it’s not right for you. Sound familiar?

So along comes something else for you to try your hand at, or you may even decide to go and have a psychic reading as they will surely tell you what your life purpose is? Yeah right, if only it was that easy.

You have sat and meditated in the hope that a flash of light is suddenly going to appear above your head flashing “this is it!!” “this is what you are meant to be doing” When in reality you more than likely close your eyes and try desperately to stop thinking about your shopping list or whatever else comes into your mind, and then you may see a shade of colour out of the corner of your eye for a fleeting moment – usually purple for me and then BOOM you are back in the real world.
If this sounds like something you are going through then the first thing you have to do right now is STOP worrying about it!! Stop trying to control your life and your life purpose!! Hmmm easier said than done isn’t it?

The more you worry about something the more The Universe will bring more things into your life to worry about. That’s Law of Attraction at work. Like attracts like. When you are thinking from a worrying state then you coming from a place of lack, which means that you are focusing on NOT being able to fathom out your life purpose. When you start to think from a place of lack then you are also being in desperation mode. You are desperate to find out what, where and who you are meant to be. Do you see what’s happening here? It’s like a vicious circle, you desperately want to know your life’s mission but the more you constantly think about the more you block it from your reality. Make sense?

What you have to learn to do is let go of the outcome. You will never find the answer while you are approaching it from desperation.

The first thing you need to do is look at where you are now. What have you achieved so far? You’re not telling me you didn’t learn anything on all those blooming courses you attended.
What is working for you at the moment?
What do you like doing? Maybe you have started to practise reading Tarot or Angel cards and found that you are actually quite good at it. It could be that you have taken up exercise and it has helped you create a healthy body or maybe you have realised that you are actually a dab hand at drawing. All of these things and more could play a part in the pursuit of your life purpose. Who knows!! Don’t dismiss them just because you can’t see the bigger picture.
STOP trying to control your life and put it into a box. Life doesn’t work like that.

You have got to learn to go with the flow and know that things are happening exactly the way they are meant too. Just because your best mate seems to be flying along with her business doesn’t make you any less of a success.

We all have lessons that we have to learn, sometimes it may seem that you have more than some. So What?! It is all part of your life lessons, the more you have the more you will be able to help other people who go through the same thing.

The moral of all this is Be Present in the NOW. Stop trying to force your future.

I promise you that if you keep on being happy in the now, keep on doing the things you love, you will before you know it be on the right path. That is because you have always been on the right path, you have always been working towards your life purpose you just haven’t realised it yet. Huh!!

Whatever you are doing now no matter how big or small it is carving out your future.

Start to visualise how you want your future life to be. What sort of house will you be living in? How many holidays a year will you be taking? What charity are you helping to make the world a better place to live in?
Imagine these things as if they are happening right now in your life for The Universe will start to bring you things to make these dreams turn into reality.

You just have to TRUST that everything will be OK. Have faith that God, The Universe, The Divine, Source, Angels or whatever else you may call it, are working for you and not against you.

Remember that your life purpose, your true calling in life might not be what you expect it to be. So live for the unexpected. Be happy with who you are now and give up being a life control freak!!
