Gaining Self-Acceptance: Steps 7-9 – Finding Your Purpose, Your Bliss
These next steps are intended to help you get to know your authentic self and to accept that self (with the possible exceptions uncovered in Step #9).
We are all here for a specific purpose, one that we may not be aware of. But fulfilling that purpose/mission/destiny is dependant on you knowing and using you unique combination of skills, gifts, talents, and passions to enhance the lives of others and the world. These strengths are your signposts to fulfilling your sacred contract; the plan you made before you incarnated. There is something only you can do and it is your job to figure out what it is and have the courage to go for it.
- Make a list of all the things you love, things you’re passionate about and things you loved as a child, including activities, sights, smells, sounds/music, tastes/foods, and feelings. Things you loved, loved to do and dreamed of as a child were driven by your birth vision/ sacred contract/ soul mission. The sense-preferences list will help you decorate your living space as to surround yourself with things that increase your energy and thus, decrease your stress, as well as enhance your spirit.This list may also help you uncover possible past life connections.
- Make a list of all the things you are good at; you strengths, talents, skills and gifts. This list provides you with a glimpse of the things you need to use to fulfill your birth vision/sacred contract/souls’ mission.
- Make a list of the things you are not good at; your weaknesses, your limitations, things you believe you “can’tˮ do.
Determine which of these things matter in pursuit of fulfilling your purpose, and determine which of these things do not matter.
Determine if the things that matter can be improved upon, learned or overcome. If they are roadblocks to what you believe is your purpose, then these are lessons and challenges you chose as part your accomplishments set for this lifetime.
Knowing your purpose gives you drive/motivation and it gives you a sense of peace and security knowing what you are supposed to be doing.
It is important to know that just as a book has many chapters and may have more than one plot point, your life may have multiple purposes and one may end (be fulfilled) leaving you open to pursue the next one. The first one may have taught you what you needed to learn to be prepared for the next one. (This is what happened for me!)
Endings are really new beginnings. Embrace the journey!
Please continue with Step 10.
May you perceive and receive all your blessings.
With Much Love,
