Finding Your Purpose

Simple steps to discover your true purpose in life by Divya Chandegra

Reading time: 3 minutes

We ask questions all the time, but what a lot of us forget to do is check in with ourselves to understand and identify our purpose. Perhaps you’ve ended up in career or connection and wonder how you got there? The question we need to ask ourselves is: what is my gift to share?

The thought of your purpose will shake your soul. It’s a knowingness that feels like the butterflies deep in your belly have been released to fly freely into your heart space and out into the universe; your unique gift. It gives you goosebumps because thinking and feeling something that completely resonates in alignment with your soul is the only thing that truly makes sense.

Discovering your gift

Finding your purpose is about re[1]discovering your authentic self. We all have a purpose that is unique to us because of our unique life experiences. Being able to learn who you are outside of the constructs and false imprints of your upbringing, society and expectations will bring you back to your true self and, ultimately, your purpose. It’s important to centre your self and focus on this task.

Learning along the way

In finding your purpose, you may question if it’s true. Usually, this is because you feel it should be harder. We’re led to believe that success means we need to suffer along the way. This is a false imprint from childhood.

On the other hand, you may start to see why everything that’s happened in your life experience or journey so far makes sense. You’ll see it clearly; it will seem almost magical how the pieces come together and you’ll have an innate knowing that only you can bring this gift to the world.

When obstacles come along your way, you’ll be guided to move past them, or accept the learning and be open to trust that the solution will come to you. You’ll continue to learn along the way and you’ll be unstoppable because you’re consciously choosing to serve your purpose.

How to discover your purpose:

  • Write down what you’re naturally good at and what brings you joy.
  • Accept that your life experiences make you the best person to share this gift.
  • Make a plan on how can you offer this learning to others

Finding your purpose and living a fulfilling life starts with identifying and consciously healing your self from the limiting beliefs, blocks and false programs instilled in you from childhood by society, tradition, culture and family. Finding your purpose is about re-discovering who you’re truly meant to be in this life and knowing that you were born to share your gift.
