What is Your Life Calling? 8 Powerful Ways to Remember your Brilliance
We all came here on a Sacred mission and our soul keeps longing to live it.
As vast as teaching millions of people or as concentrated as being a devotional mother to a child, or even an animal, we all have our own unique fragrance.
This one extraordinary ray of light that is ours to add to the entire mix of humanity.
When we pursue our calling, our contribution to the whole, we feel deeply fulfilled. On other hand, if we are not in tune with it, it keeps knocking on our inner door and begging for our attention. We feel it in our inner struggles.
These few pointers will support you in remembering (you already know it all!) what is your life calling, what is your particular gift that the world will find valuable.
1. What did you enjoy doing as a child?
This is a powerful indicator of the activity or field of interest that consumed your early days, before you prioritised your life according to learned (often corrupted) importance. What consumed your totality before you were conditioned by your parents, family, teachers and society regarding how you should live your life?
Perhaps, you took some roads for the mere acceptance of others rather than your own true desires. In many occasions to pursue your life calling meant to be a rebel.
Connect to life from the heart space, from the innocence and purity of a child and you will soon tap into your brilliance once again.
2. Observe the thread of your life.
You will find many clues and building blocks creating the tread of your purpose.
Life itself organised all the necessary events, tools, skills and depth of experiences, which supports your soul as it is seeking to expand itself into its full potential. Sometimes we can only connect the dots once we are aligned with our purpose. Then we are able to track how we were always guided and supported even through what we categorised as “bad”, we can now consider to be opportunities for your evolution, blessings in disguise on your life journey (even if you can’t see it right now).
Life holds the power to provide you with the necessary keys to unlock your own potential once you accept them as they are: your stepping stones on your path for self actualisation.
For that, you have to make the choice to be the hero of your life rather than the victim of your story.
3. Observe whether you are wired* as a victim/ mortar/ pessimist or total altruist? or any other limiting archetype.
If you find yourself stuck in one of these archetypes and it inflicts pain on you, notice and accept it as a precious gift that served as a survival mechanism in your private circumstances.
It is not a life sentence and it can be transformed, but you do have to make a conscious decision that you want to drop this limiting pattern of behaviour, that no longer serves you.
The awareness of this pattern together with new wiring of self-loving attitude can shape shift your current reality into the one you are thriving to live – free from the bondages that were created in order to feel loved.
4. What blessings can you count and be grateful for now?
it is important to create a vibration of gratitude as it takes you closer to your life calling.
5. What gives you life energy and fills you with vital power?
When you live your purpose it feels great.
When I am speaking or writing I feel alive (did I mentioned, dancing…?)
I am so passionate about what I do that it sends ripples out to people around me. It is magnetic creative power. what is it that turns you on?
6. What would you do if money (or time) was not an issue?
What would you do then? Most likely your life calling.
If your answer is, I will vegetate in front of the TV, surf on social media, or lay on the beach all day, anything along those lines than you clearly choose to stay mediocre and let life pass by. Perhaps, you lost the burning flame of the fire of life, or you are suppressing so much pain that it is numbing you.
In this case, there are many therapies to ignite this flame of life again, my favourites being breathwork and plant medicine.
7. What are your interests, talents and passions?
They all are powerful indicators of your purpose.
There is always a distinction between your gifts and the gifts you are here to share. It might unveil a new direction, a whole other angel. It might be all manifested in a way you could not envision, so be open to the flow of life.
8. What is your Golden Shadow?
Your dark shadow makes up your fears, addictions and dirty secretes. Your golden shadow is the matrix of your hidden talents, blinding beauty, inherited intelligence and unique creativity.
The golden shadow is what we hide from others (or even from ourselves!) and what we are unwilling to love in ourselves.
It can be your esoteric gift that you hide from the fear of being perceived as weird or your natural feminine sexuality that you temper for the fear of seeming too outrages.
When we dare to share our golden shadow, this divine aspect of us, we unlock its power and become more integrated.
When you own your golden shadow you shine.
