Discovering and living out your purpose can be one of the most satisfying things in life. Often, our purpose can shift and evolve over time, but knowing what direction we’re meant to be following in the present moment can be greatly rewarding.
Living your purpose leads to a sense of satisfaction and contentment and allows you to fully express who you are. Our purpose can be lived out through our businesses, hobbies, and relationships. When you don’t know your purpose, it can feel like you're going through life on autopilot. You might keep yourself busy with work, relationships, and social activities, but underneath the surface, you probably know there's something missing.
When I was younger, I spent years trying to figure out my purpose. I’d read book after book, constantly trying to figure out what I was meant to be doing with my life. The act of seeking answers outside of myself left me feeling anxious, worried about my future, and often depressed. I started to feel like everyone else was out there living their dreams while I was roaming aimlessly through life.
After doing a lot inner work and connecting to my intuition, I realized all the answers already lived inside of me and I could access them by connecting with my Higher Self (or Divine Self) whenever I wanted to. One of the things that can help us travel within and get in touch with our Higher Self is to create simple rituals—routines that enable us to take an ordinary moment in time and give it special meaning.
Even the simple act of lighting a candle and setting the intention that we’re going to create magic allows a potent internal shift to take place.
