Dear Lightworkers, Therapists, Life Coaches, Healing Practitioners and all Lightseekers:
It is time to take our clients to the next step in their development. During a recent meditation it became clear that in order to shed ego, in order for our internal lights to ignite, we need to find something bigger than ourselves to devote our energy. And this evolution must take place and quickly. We are at a pivotal point in our spiritual growth and we need as many lights turned on as possible.
Shifting the Focus
Most of our clients come to us for specific issues that are preventing them from being whole. Whether from an illness or a loss or other tragic event, they seek answers, peace and healing. We have spent valuable time and energy helping them achieve these goals. Now we need to shift our attention and theirs to something bigger, their life purpose. In many occasions their struggles become their own springboards into their divine destiny. For instance, I became a Reiki Master after my mother died of uterine cancer. I took that tragedy and grief and fueled that energy into helping others. And now I am fulfilling my life purpose, helping others heal and witnessing miracles nearly every day.
Getting Through the Tunnel
Find that key theme in their life, that main struggle that keeps reoccurring, that will be a clue into their divine purpose. A phrase I like to use in my practice is, ‘Get through your tunnel then help others through theirs’. For instance, a life-long struggle with addiction can transform a soul into a addiction therapist or counselor helping others through their struggle. Or a long-term illness can transform that person into a healer themselves, helping others through their battles. I ask my clients and students frequently, why do you think this event, illness, tragedy happened to you? What were the life lessons to come of it? How do you feel about it now and can you show others how you got through it? They light up when I suggest they can help others. They need to be shown that they can make a difference in other’s lives, in the environment, in whatever it is they are passionate about. They need to be encouraged, supported and loved. We can do this.
Follow Your Bliss
Over the years I’ve seen a shift as my clients struggle with their identity. On the surface they are holding down good jobs, raising families, in happy relationships but on a deeper level they feel, intuitively, that there is something missing. They know there is something more that they need to be doing with their lives. They feel they are not in complete alignment with their divine purpose. But, they fear change. Fear that they will be thought of or seen differently. Fear that they will not succeed or they are not capable of being the powerful being that they know deep inside they are. This is where we come in. We need to hold the space and allow them to dream and explore and feel safe talking about their divine life purpose. It can start with a simple conversation about what do they love, what they are excited about. You might hear answers like yoga, flowers, my children, the environment, teaching, learning, etc. Talk through that, what does that look like? How can they take it from a dream to a reality?
It Starts in Steps
So many folks get discouraged when they realize that what they aspire to can take a lot more time, effort and money then they currently have available. Start small. Make lists. Prioritize the steps. Have a realistic time frame. For instance, if they are a software engineer but feel called to teach young adults, suggest volunteering at a local high school. Or have them get in touch with the guidance counselor and have an informal conversation about what that might look like. And they don’t have to quit their day job or take time away from their kids, they can be creative, there’s always an hour here or there a week that they can find to set aside for their life purpose. One of the miracles of life is that when we take action towards our life purpose the Universe rises up to meet us and matches that effort. Steps that on the surface may seem insurmountable are achieved in far less time with far less effort than previously thought.
When We Shed the Ego We Become Light
In taking time and energy to focus on their life purpose they can get out of their own head prisons and put forth efforts to better humanity, the environment, the world and the universe at large. When this happens their connection to Source, God, the Universe, their Divine Selves ignites and becomes a stronger, clearer channel. The more deeply connected they are to the Divine, the more they bring that energy here to this plain of existence on Earth.
I encourage you to think of this shift when working with your clients in helping them find their Divine Life’s Purpose. I feel an incredible amount of loving, supportive energy that is ready to embrace all of us on our paths. May you continue to do the loving work that you do and share your own lights with the Universe.
Thank you for all that you do.
I send you my light and love,
