Born into this world as a tiny babe, soft, curious and filled with a knowledgeable soul.
You grow and, as you do, you are filled with beliefs about life that may not fit your initial grand vision of life as a soul in a new body.
You learn about what to be afraid of. How to live life according to the rules of the land and your parent’s thoughts and beliefs around life.
Over time, they can crowd out and take-over the innocent joyful and happy beliefs you brought with you into this new world journey.
As an adult, you wonder why you feel off. You did everything everyone told you to do, went to college, got a job, got married and so on. It is how everyone told you do it, yet you have this nagging feeling that this is not what you came here to do.
But what do you do now to somehow fill the raw gap inside begging for something different? Do you drop everything and go for the gold, or do you just struggle along because that is what everyone else is doing?
You know you are not alone in this, right? There are many others just like you, who came here with a grand mission and in growing up, they lost their way and now just like you, and they feel the call of their soul to do something different.
How Can So Many Of Us Get So Lost Along The Way? How Do We Find Our Soul’s Purpose?
As babes, we are seen as blank slates to be programmed with the rules and beliefs needed to be a good person. Very rarely do parents allow their children to show them their true selves before they are trying to dictate how you should live and see the world around you.
They tell us their stories which for better or for worse plants beliefs into our subconscious mind that may go against the beliefs we brought in with us.
In time, many of the beliefs about our gifts and purpose are buried by the beliefs of our parents and how society thinks the world should work.
Here’s the thing though, you were freaking awesome the day you were conceived. The soul that occupies your body has always been great and having a new body to occupy doesn’t change that.
While babies are seen as blank slates, the truth is we all come with a gift and a purpose.
In order to really be who you truly are, you have to shed the beliefs given to you as a child, so you can start to recognize who you really are as a soul living on this planet for a higher purpose.
How does one do this? Well I will get to that in moment, but before I do, I want to make sure there are no hard feelings, anger or resentment towards your parents for setting you up to follow a path that was not yours to live.
I know it is not easy to, but you have to understand that your parents are just repeating what was taught to them as a child.
They too came in with the same softness, joy and profound sense of purpose but, just like you, it was whitewashed so that they could either fit in with society or go after something that their parents thought would make them a good person.
Also a lot of what your parents taught you was based on what others were telling them to do to raise “good little law abiding children”. But really it is about making sure everyone is the same. Sameness provides comfort for those that are uncomfortable with non-conformity.
We did not become an ever-changing world where new things are discovered every day by being the same as everyone else. Instead it took people with big dreams to push past the farce of society’s status quo game.
They stood by their dreams and let no one deter them. To name a few – Nickola Telsa, Henry Ford, Steve Jobs and Walt Disney. Each one of them pushed past society’s beliefs about the world to create that which their soul called for.
What if within you, your soul knows how to…
