I was unhappy and deeply unfulfilled in my job and my life. I was not able to utilise my talents and gifts and felt that I had no direction or purpose in life. Every day was a struggle to get out of bed to go to work and to live. My soul was slowly dying from the inside and I did not want to live anymore.
I wanted to use my talents and gifts to make a difference in people’s lives and have the freedom to do the things that bring me joy and lasting fulfilment. But I did not know what I wanted to do or what my purpose was.
I started exploring and seeking my purpose. I read loads of self-help, personal development and spiritual books and took classes. The endless searching still did not provide me with the answers I was looking for.
I spent most of my life trying to find answers until I realized the answers were right here all the time within myself. Answers are gain not by searching for them on the outside, but by looking on the inside.
So, I decided to study counselling for two years, to increase my self-awareness, to enable me to see aspects of my thought process and behaviour that I may not have noticed before. As part of the assessment of the course, I had to write in a journal my thoughts and feelings. I have found that by regularly assessing myself helps me keep track of what it is I want and who I want to be.
While I enjoyed counselling, I was struggling with doubts about the therapeutic process, contemplating whether it was enough to help someone understand themselves and solve their problems. I was having resisting thoughts and beliefs that were stopping me from moving forward. I think it’s to do with uncertainty, not know what is going to happen. I needed to let go and listen to my heart and do what feels right for me. When I finished the course.
I went to a psychic development workshop to help tap into my own intuition. A week later I had my first spiritual awakening, all of my chakras activated in succession and light beam out from my body. My whole body was surrounded by a golden-orange light; I felt inner peace and freedom. I realise I was more than a human being ‘I am a being of light’ we all are. Since then I have embarked on a journey of self-discovery and re-connection with my true self.
I practised and studied an ancient yogic meditation to help me focus my mind and still my thoughts. So, I would be able to tap into my subconscious mind for answers. I meditated in a group for 45 minutes, one day I asked myself “What is my life purpose?” I listened for an answer and to my surprise, I saw the words scrolling in my mind’s eye.
I finally felt I can be who I am meant to be and share the gifts that were given to me to help others as well as myself. I am now sharing my personal and spiritual journey, practices, ideas with others, to hopefully help you learn from my experiences so that you can awaken your true potential and live your life with passion and purpose.
