Having you ever wondered why you are here on Earth?
Over the last few years, I realized something about people, and I’ll bet you’ve noticed the same thing. Whether they’re old or young, rich or poor, living in New York City or a small town in Kansas, people have something in common — they want to know that what they’re doing matters, and that their life means something.
As a medium, I get a lot of people asking me about their special gifts and talents. When people are talking to me, they’re mostly wondering about their spiritual gifts, but honestly, it doesn’t matter if you’re a gifted psychic or a gifted carpenter, a born medium or a born musician. Bottom line, we all want to know why we were put on this earth, and we want to be assured that we’re living our true purpose.
When I talk to souls in Heaven, this topic comes up often. Looking back over their lives, the dead can see things clearly. They know if they lived a meaningful life or not, and now that their lives on earth are over, they want to help their loved ones make the most of their own lives. But most of all, they have a message for you. They want you to know that you were put here on Earth for a reason.
I’m always so happy to relay these messages of guidance and encouragement. After all, what’s more meaningful than the wisdom that comes from a heavenly perspective?
What Makes You Special?
Here’s what I’ve gathered from talks with the spirit world… When you’re born, there are certain gifts that have your name written on them. These gifts are divinely placed in your life from Heaven and are just for you. Nobody else can claim them.
You won’t truly know the FULL purpose of your life until you pass on. During your life review the mystery of why you were put on earth will be revealed. But while you’re alive, the insights I’m sharing here can help nudge you onto the right path.
Oh, and one more thing to keep in mind. In addition to being born with special gifts, you might encounter challenges that help you discover your purpose. Heaven tells me that all the challenges, struggles and obstacles we face here on Earth define our future by teaching us life lessons and making us stronger. These challenges are not meant to stop us, they are meant to empower us.
Think about the struggles you have gone through in your life. How could you use your experience to help someone going through the same or something similar?
Hints and Opportunities from Heaven
I once did a reading for a man who was lucky to be alive. He had almost passed from an alcohol addiction, and after coming so close to death, he knew he had to make a change. After this dramatic wake up call, he worked so hard to get sober. It wasn’t easy, but he persevered. Once he was healed, he knew his purpose was to help others to do the same.
He started rescuing some of his friends who had similar issues and joined forces with organizations to raise money and save lives. Doing this helped him to stay sober, while gaining satisfaction from the knowledge that he was making a difference in people’s lives.
The spirit world tells me that they send us hints to fulfill our purpose. When we’re on the right path, the other side helps us along, pushing us toward new opportunities and people that can help us.
Align yourself With Your Soul Purpose
So where to start? Open your mind to all the possibilities. Finding your purpose is not so much about finding the meaning of YOUR life, but about becoming more by learning lessons and using your divine gifts to help others.
If you can’t readily identify your uniqueness, look back to what you love. Start by asking yourself these questions…
What conversations or activities excite you most?
What are you better at than anyone else you know?
What lesson have you learned that you’re passionate about sharing with others?
You’ve probably heard this, and I KNOW it’s true because it happens to me every time I do a reading:
When you are channeling your gifts, time disappears as you become completely one with your task. When you’re in that zone, you’re not looking at your watch or going to the refrigerator for a snack. You’re 100% immersed in what you’re doing, you’re perfectly content, and hours go by like minutes.
Where Do You Fit In?
Some of us are painters, some of us are musicians. Some of us are born teachers, inventors, some of us are born healers and others are born leaders. Where do you fit in?
Start by paying attention to those activities that bring you the fulfillment. Listen to your intuition as you meditate and journal. Write a letter to a loved one on the other side and ask for guidance. And, if you run across a medium or attend a mediumship event, keep your ears open for clues from Heaven.
