Where to Find Your Life Purpose

Quite often, I come across people searching for their life purpose externally. They’re frustrated because no matter where they look, they’re not getting any closer to finding their purpose. And, honestly, they won’t ever get closer if they continue searching for it outside of themselves.


I’m going to answer this question really quickly for you. Your life purpose is within you. It is you. The authentic you.

It’s the you, when you’re not hindered by the thought of being judged. It’s the you when you’re not living up to the expectations of others. (Both of which are your own perception of reality… But I’ll leave that for another blog).
It’s the you when you are operating at a high frequency – as you are naturally made to. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the term frequency; it’s a state-of-being concept that quantifies your body’s vibration. The higher your vibration, the better state/mood you’re in. And the higher level of consciousness you are experiencing.
In Dr David Hawkins’ book, “Power Vs Force“, there’s a scale of consciousness based on frequencies. The scale goes from 1-1000. Frequencies above 200, are positive frequencies (Power) and below are negative frequencies (Force). To find, and start living your life purpose, we need to be operating at a high frequency of around 500 or above. This opens you up to the knowing of our inner selves with flow and ease. This level of frequency also enables you to become conscious to who you really are.

From the moment we’re born, social and cultural conditioning starts taking place. Many of these constructs create blocks and beliefs that prevent a deep understanding of your authentic-self… and in essence, your life purpose!
For example, Mary lives where there’s a social construct that a woman’s place is solely as homemakers and child raisers. This is in deep contrast to her inner calling to also work in her community. She feels a strong pull to ensuring clean drinking water for all. Mary has a very important decision to make. Is she going to push her deep desires to help others down in order to keep up with social norms? Or is she going to break the mould and take action towards doing the thing she feels called to do? What is her decision going to be?

This leads me to the first step to finding your life purpose. I wrote about this in a recent blog. If you’d like to read it, it can be found here. The First Step to Finding Your Life Purpose.

After we have made that first step, we can start the real fun of looking within. Raising your frequency will help you to do this.
The more inner work you do, like releasing limiting beliefs and listening to yourself… the more clues you will receive about why you’re here.
Be sure to take that first step and commit to your life purpose discovery.
Next, to help you along the way here’s a quick exercise that may give you insight your life purpose.
If you’ve got 5-10 minutes spare, find a quiet space where you won’t be disturbed. Take along a pen and paper or journal too. (If you don’t have a journal but would like one, I have beautiful journals created with love available below or in My Little Shop of Happiness).
Step 1: Say out loud: “Within the next 5 to 10 minutes, I intend to receive clues to what my life purpose is.”
Step 2: Close your eyes and place your hands over your heart for 2 to 3 minutes. Move your focus from your head into your heart space.
Step 3: After doing this for 2-3 minutes, answer these five questions. Please note that the answer is the first thought that popped into your head. There are no right or wrong answers in this.
Step 4: Write down the answers to the questions in your journal. And please know that the answers you may receive, might not make sense to you now. It is important to write them down as they may make sense to you in the future.
1) What did you love doing when you were a child?
2) If money wasn’t a factor, what would you be doing?
3) What activities bring you joy?
4) What types of jobs do you gravitate towards?
5) If you had one year to live and you are given unlimited funds, how would you spend the next 12 months?
How did you go?

  1. This is a good idea. Life can be busy and distracting. Thank you for sharing.


  2. This sounds interesting. It’s easy to lose our way and get lost in everybody else’s expectations.


    1. It sure it. We are surrounded by expectations, social and cultural constructs and many distractions. Meditation is such a simple way to keep us centred and aligned with our authentic self. So we don’t become lost. This is why I recommend meditation all the time. We know all the answers, we just need to be still enough to listen. Thank you for commenting on my post 🙂


  3. I love this! Journaling has been really big for me and helping me to open new paths and uncover limiting beliefs. Although my life purpose — writing — is pretty obvious to me, often it gets buried under limiting beliefs about what I SHOULD be doing, particularly because a part of me has long believed that I can’t possibly make money doing what I truly love.


    1. Yes, that infamous “Should” word. We often put ourselves under so much pressure by saying we should do this our we should be doing that. I started asking the question: “I should according to who?” and listened for the answer. I now say “I choose to this” or “I’d like to do that”. It feels so much nicer. I have found journaling to be very useful. Often I would journal some message or image I received while meditating. At the time it wouldn’t make sense to me. But 6 months to a year down the track, sure enough, it makes perfect sense. Had I not journaled it, I probably wouldn’t have remembered it as it was insignificant at the time. Than you for your comment 🙂
