Why Can't I Figure Out My Purpose?Feb 11, 2021
I want to do something meaningful with my life, but feel overwhelmed when thinking about which direction to go. Sound familiar?
A sense of purpose gets you out of bed in the morning. It gives you inner calm. It creates confidence that makes people want to connect with you. Being aligned with your purpose is powerful, but most people struggle finding their purpose.
One reason you aren't figuring it out is due to stress. Stress is the chronic state of fight, freeze or flight. Your life feels like a struggle, your life feels stuck, or you feel like you're avoiding taking action altogether. Believe it or not, there are two super simple, but powerful ways to shift stuck patterns.
The first is meditation. You're most likely familiar with the concept, but have you actually tried it? If the thought of sitting still with your eyes closed for 20 minutes causes panic, you're not alone. One of the reasons for everyone's current state of busy-busy, is to avoid spending time with themselves.
If this sounds like you, try listening to a guided meditation with a repeated mantra such as 'OM' or a musical tone. A simple guide--without narration--is all you need. With eyes closed, you can focus on the OM or tone and return to it anytime your focus strays.
Another helpful practice is keeping a daily gratitude journal. Writing your gratitudes helps you appreciate what you already have. It moves your mind from 'lack' to 'abundance'. From a place of having enough, you feel less overwhelmed and panicked about what you need.
Like meditation, a gratitude practice shifts you out of the stress response. Cortisol (the stress hormone) drops. You stop focusing on survival, and can go into a creative space of consciousness. In that space, you will have access to your inner knowing, your intuition. You will have access to your purpose.
If you're struggling with a lack of purpose, contact me now. Because you have the right to live a meaningful, empowered life. With an experienced guide, the shift is easier than you may believe.
