Finding Purpose

Hold your hand over your heart for a moment. Do you feel it? It is a miracle, just like you are. THAT beating is the rhythm of your purpose. Your heartbeat is a reminder of the unique life, experiences and gifts that were given to you when you arrived on this earth. Think of the expressions we use: what makes your heart sing, the call of your heart, heart-centered, what makes your heart soar. We use these expressions, because following the song of our heart is as essential to our happiness and quality of life as our own magical heartbeat is to sustaining our physical life. And somewhere deep inside, you know this too.

For the past three months, I have been blessed with the opportunity to work with a wonderful online community of women around reclaiming the purpose and joy in their lives in my Hänsel & Gretel program, then Overcoming Fear with Red Riding Hood, and, finally, Manifesting Magic with Cinderella. It has been such a rewarding experience to see these women go from feeling stuck and uninspired to gaining fresh clarity and, in some cases, even a new direction in life and relationships.

I will tell you from my experience in my own life and in working with private clients that the main reason most of us stay stuck is fear – fear that we are not enough, fear of the unknown, fear that we don’t deserve better, fear of failure, fear of disappointing the people in our lives. And I get it. I’ve been there. I stayed for so long in a job and a life that I'd outgrown, becasue I was afraid I would fail if I tried something else. But I’ve also been on the other side and I can tell you with a certainty that goes deep down into my bones that when you get past the fear, the world opens up and everything changes.

It saddens me when I see someone put away her dreams out of fear, because I know how how it feels. This is one of the reasons I am so drawn to doing the work that I do. I don't want other women to feel that way. I don't want YOU to feel that way. Part of the miracle of who we are is that we all have a unique voice and gifts that are meant to be shared. In fact, I would go so far as to say that we have a responsibility to share them, especially if doing so will enrich our lives and the lives of those around us. So, what are you going to do, miracle? Where can you reclaim a bit of your life's purpose? What sweet song is your heart singing to you?
