Soul Purpose

To let go of what is not you, so you canallow the authentic you to shine

Your life purpose can mean the thing you do that gives your life meaning, Your soul purpose is the expression of your natural light, remembering the truth of who you are, and sharing that with the world. Both are beneficial. Knowing your soul purpose can be immensely meaningful, powerful, and fulfilling because it represents who you are and the things that express who you are, not what you do.

Finding your soul purpose is the ability to find more of the true essence of you. To let go of what is not you, so you can allow the authentic you to shine.

Allowing your soul purpose to reveal itself is more about being than doing.

It involves being more of yourself and letting go of old distortions that hide the real you. When you let go of those layers of distortion, you allow your soul’s essence to fully express its self. Finding your soul’s purpose is about asking questions that bring you home to the person you were meant to be. Some people know early on what their soul’s purpose is, but for others, it takes time and experimentation.

Here are a few things you can ask yourself to help your thoughts around finding your soul’s purpose:

  • What am I good at?
  • What brings me joy?
  • What part of my day is joyful?
  • What in my life no longer serves me— emotionally, physically, and spiritually?
  • Have I had any incidents that have served as wake‑up calls for me?
  • Who are my role models and icons?
  • What do I often teach others?
  • What are my dreams and desires?
  • How do I help others transform?
