My practice focuses on finding and living one’s Soul-Aligned essence or purpose. There are many ways that one can focus and find one’s purpose. The technique that I am trained is uses what is called “direct access” methods. Essentially, this means that you are learning to communicate with your Soul. You may call this other names like Higher Self, Inner Wisdom, God, Great Spirit. All of these names represent that you are working with an energy that is greater than yourself and would have information about who you are, who you are meant to be, and your Soul-Aligned purpose.
During the 12-15 weeks, we would be working towards finding your purpose and then putting together a plan for living it. After all, finding your purpose changes nothing, living your purpose changes everything. Once you find your purpose, living it can become a challenge as it likely means living outside of your comfort zone. The ego then steps in to protect you with the result of you living a “less than” life.
Why would you want to find your purpose? If you are anything like me, you went through life wondering every now and then “why am I here?” It felt like it was more than going to work and all of the other activities in my life, and yet, had no inkling of what the reason might be. Like so many people who reach their 50’s and 60’s the desire to know became more of an imperative. “I didn’t want to die not knowing” and more importantly feeling like I might have “wasted” my life.
Through the Shift Network, I connected with Tim Kelley, one of the founders of the True Purpose Institute. I learned what my purpose is, and in 2015 while driving around the backroads of MT or Alberta, made the determination that I wanted to be able to support others in finding their purpose. So, I became a trained True Purpose Coach.
To me, one of the exciting and fulfilling things about using the direct access methods approach, is that YOU come up with what your purpose is. There are a lot of tools, including psychics or other intuitives, that can tell you what your purpose is, however, there is something more satisfying to come up with it on your own. For me, it meant a lot and validated many things. Now, I would like to caution you, that coming up with it on your own doesn’t always mean that you completely understand it immediately, nor take away the clench in the gut when you realize how big it could be.
