Discovering your life purpose may seem easy, but for most of us it’s not. Most people simply don’t know what they want in life, not to mention their life purpose. This creates a problem because the glue that holds everything we do together is either strengthened or weakened by our purpose.
Your heart on the other hand knows no limitations, because it’s connected to your authentic self. Behind all those layers of complexity, practical intelligence, and logical reasoning, is a person deep within you who knows no limitations. No matter how intelligent you are, if you depend completely on your logical mind for answers you will never experience your life purpose. The reason is simple! your logical mind puts limitations on everything you do without any emotional strings attached.
Finding your life purpose
Our life purpose usually has a connection to our emotions, and deep desires. We may feel a tug to go a new direction, but don’t know why, or where to start. An easy way to find answers is through an effective creative emotion technique.
Before starting have a pencil and paper ready to write with. Make sure your relaxed, and comfortable. What you’re looking for is a desire that triggers an emotional reaction. Write as many answers to these questions below as possible.
- What do I desire in my life that I don’t have now?
- What did I love to do in the past that I don’t do now?
- What makes me happy?
- What can I do now to help other people?
- What do I want for my spouse and children?
- If money was not an issue how would I live my life?
- What would I do if there were no obstacles or limitations in my way?
These are not all going to have your life purpose in them, but as you continue to answer the questions you may feel an emotional connection with one or two. This means you’re getting closer to your inner energy source which is connected to your desires. In order to be effective the answers need to be measured by the intensity of the desire. Ask yourself from 1-10 where is your intensity level on a specific desire. If it’s a 6 or 7 it’s probably something you should do that’s nice, but it’s not close to your life purpose. If it’s an 8 or 9 it means your willing to put some time and energy into it, but it’s still not your life purpose.
You will find that when desires are pursued below a 9 on intensity levels they usually become learning experiences and not life changing. Only desires that are a 10 can be the source of life filled with enthusiasm discipline, and persistence. The heart desire of a 10 is the sweet spot. That’s where you will find your life purpose … it will energize your family, your business, your relationships, and your entire life. When you begin to move your life in that direction you’ll begin to live the most satisfying life you can have here on earth.
Our Logical Mind vs Our Life Purpose
We know logically that certain things are bad for us yet we do them anyway. Our logical mind will justify things while putting up limitations that keep us from experiencing the purpose of our life. We hide behind logic to justify bad habits, laziness, bitterness, insecurities, and several other things that give a false sense of justification.
When we allow our logical mind to take complete control of our life it will literally sabotage our purpose. Our logical mind will control our thought patterns, positions, and conditions while defending our present state without any recognition for change. Using only logic without the heart can keep you from your life purpose.
Connecting logic with your life purpose
Is it possible to connect your logic to your life purpose? The short answer is a yes. Our logical mind filters out anything that contradicts conditioned programming from the past. When it receives any information it believes is impossible it simply rejects it. Our logical mind serves us well but we need to control it, instead of allowing it to control us.
We can override it when things don’t feel right. Maybe a gut feeling tells us somethings wrong, and it makes no logical sense why. Or something just feels right, but there’s no logical reason why. We humans have a keen sense of intuition that is pretty accurate. If we only listen to our head instead of our heart we will be off purpose most of our life.
The heart is linked to our purpose, and speaks to us through desires, feelings, and emotions. Most people try to create their life with mind-sets instead of heart set. Our heart is the higher spiritual part of the mind which has access to the subconscious without the logical minds permission. We have the authority to bypass the logical gate-keeper, and speak directly into our life where the subconscious mind dwells.
This is done through prayer, attributes, meditation, and trusting God to reveal our life purpose with certainty and clarity.
Our logical mind is only one avenue to get our heart’s desire. Thinking is an art and if were going to experience our entire purpose on earth we need to learn to use all our arsenal. Your subconscious mind holds the secrets to incredible success. The mind simply wants to protect us, and it’s willing to fight us at every turn before it accepts positive change. Remember when it comes to your life purpose start from the heart not your head. Many miss it by 18″ inches, which is the distance from the head to the heart.
