Friend, once again, at the risk of seeming like a complete dork, I shall share with you my truth. Oh yayyy! I’m feeling so excited to have finally found my life purpose and will share with you how you can find yours too. Last week especially I was really asking for this, affirming/praying in the form of “Thank you that I am living my life purpose!” as I went on my beauty walk. The next day I felt extremely on purpose but then on Tuesday evening I felt really down, wondering when it was going to happen and why it hadn’t happened yet.
Interestingly, as part of my life purpose I can swing between mania or confidence (I can do anything!) and self-doubt or overwhelm (Why did I think I could do this?). Don’t I know it. But because of feeling that insecurity on Tuesday, I decided to do a 21-day daily meditation challenge. I’ve been a bit slack in that arena lately. Well, already that started me feeling so clear and joyful again on Wednesday and then on Friday morning as I was standing at the sink, thinking about a problem, I received the idea (the thought popped in my head) to go check this particular website, which led me to a book I have on Kindle, The Life You Were Born To Live. Actually, it wasn’t the first time that little voice had mentioned it lately but this time I listened.
Wow. This was a revelation! It is a calculation based on your date of birth and though it may sound far fetched, I tested the calculator against at least ten relationships, including with family and friends, and found it very accurate. So then I went to look at the book and found that as a 30/3 my life purpose is self-expression through emotional sensitivity and intuition, helping others to feel their emotions and experience the full expression of their humanity.
“At the summit, the emotional connection 3s can feel to life and to others generates a rising energy that, once expressed, can uplift everyone around them, revelling in emotions the way dolphins revel in the sea. At the highest levels, 3s serve as an open channel of loving energy, moving others to joy and inspiration, becoming a force of light in the world.”
Couldn’t agree more! Lol. But because life purpose doesn’t come easily, the obstacles we face help us to deal with the issues associated with our paths. So it was that I came to writing as a way of expressing my emotions when I didn’t know how to as a child, teen and young adult. 3s make the best orators but also the best manic-depressives. I know the effect of blocking my emotions too and have been on a journey of expressing them in constructive ways. In fact, each time I have gone to the psych, post breast cancer metastasis, it has been with the intention to feel my emotions more. As a teacher or coach I was very in tune with how my students or clients were feeling, but had to learn to pull back also, to better serve them and myself.
There is a lot more in the book and in my books but you can start off with the calculator and find out yours. I’d love to know what your numbers are too. Try the calculator with your relationships and let me know how you go in the comments if any of it resonates. What have you got to lose?
