☏ Hello? It’s Your Soul Calling ☏

  • How To Uncover Your Life Purpose

    Floundering, lost and frustrated.

    These are just a few of the emotions that I used to feel regularly before I finally touched upon why on Earth I am here.

    After meandering through multiple careers and venturing into various industries, I slowly edged closer and closer to what felt like the embodiment of “me”. Life is a lot different now, and I long to help anyone who is struggling to find their why in the same way that I was.

    Telltale signs include: counting down to the weekend just to party and spend Sunday hungover; crossing off each desk calendar day until a faraway holiday; feeling dread at the thought of even going into work (on Sunday nights and beyond!)

    If you’re struggling to pinpoint your purpose or seeking clarity around why you’re really here, then ask yourself these 5 questions…

    ⋆☽  Question 1  ☾⋆

    What Drives You?


    Are you driven to heal animals/people, or are you seeking a certain social status? Deep down are you trying to please your family, or do you want to bring home a high income?

    Above needing to cover your basic needs, start to really consider your biggest career drivers. This is no time to be judgemental if it is money, travel or anything other than “the greater good” because to locate your purpose we first need to uncover what your true motivations are.


    ⋆☽  Question 2  ☾⋆

    What’s The Biggest Problem In The World?


    As you can imagine this is a very subjective question, but I have found that people usually have 1 or 2 issues which they are especially passionate about. Whether it is sexism, racism, animal rights or anything else awaiting justice in this world – if you could fix just one thing: what would it be?

    Again, you are no better or worse than anyone else for your viewpoint on this. We are simply trying to trace the trail of smoke back to your burning passion.


    ⋆☽  Question 3  ☾⋆

    What Unique Skills Do You Have?


    Do your friends unload their issues onto you because you’re an amazing agony aunt, or does everyone marvel at your culinary creations? Where do you put your inimitable personal touch?

    It doesn’t matter if it is something that you have learnt and had training in, or if you were born with it. Either way, if you’re really good at something then you will be well compensated for doing it and achieve great things.


    ⋆☽  Question 4  ☾⋆

    What Activities Are You Drawn To?


    Feeling an ego push or an intuitive pull towards something feels very different indeed. If you are forcing yourself to stick to a certain path, then it is probably not the most aligned one that you could be on.

    When you are guided towards an activity which aligns perfectly with you, it will feel magnetic and fill you up with energy rather than depleting it. With this in mind: what activities make you feel the most alive?


    ⋆☽  Question 5  ☾⋆

    What Do You Always Make Time For?


    We only have a certain amount of hours in a day and we all have things that we need to get done, but how we choose to prioritise them depends on our values.

    In Dr John Demartini’s book The Values Factor, he asks 13 questions to illuminate our values so I recommended giving it a read to understand yours. We often take on the values that we feel we should have like being a “good” or “charitable” person, but if we’re honest with ourselves then they may not be our biggest drivers in everyday life. We reserve the most time and space for what we value most, so if you can align your career with your existing values then your job won’t feel as much like work.


    “Where the needs of the world and your talents cross, therein lies your vocation…”
    – Aristotle

    Our life is a journey of uncovering rather than a race to an end destination, because as we all know – this journey only ends one way! So, the more closely that we align with our purpose in this lifetime then the bigger and bolder our impact will be.


    If you have a friend or relative who might benefit from this article then please share it with them – it may just be the intuitive nudge that they need to live a more purposeful life!

  • Meditate To Manifest!

    By surrendering, by allowing, by embracing the present moment – you are effecting movement in that very moment of stillness.

    Being still to create change can feel contradictory; as though the two energies are mutually incompatible. But the energy of the Divine is still and it is also the energy of infinite creation. When we tap into our God-selves through meditation we can find that stillness, and also our forgotten talent of pure creation. They coexist and reside together, deep within our minds and hearts. The energies of stillness and creation are tantamount to one another – they are not separate or opposing, despite what the common “hustle” rhetoric would have us believe.

    I wrote on my Instagram recently Look Within Or Go Without and the message here is the same. When we spend time looking within to clear limiting energy blockages and expand the divine light which radiates out from our heart centre, we are tuning in to our most powerful manifestation tool. I say that “your heart centre is your creation station”, but often we close down our heart centre as we go through daily life to protect ourselves when we are at work or anywhere else that we see a potential for confrontation. We need to consciously open it back up again in order to operate at full force, and we do that in meditation.

    Being still is productive and fruitful. It prepares you for the action stage, and ensures that your actions are not in vain because you are storming ahead without focus and, therefore, heading in a strange direction. Pausing to look within and seek your deeper truths sets you ahead of all the others who are too busy doing exactly that.

    Gabrielle Bernstein has a saying “stop, drop, and meditate”, because when she is feeling the most rushed and busy is when she is most inclined to meditate. She knows that calming the mind is a powerful tool – it unleashes your power of creation and makes you into a more focused and refined warrior for your dreams.

    Invest the time to look within so that you can direct your heart energy and energy d’être towards that which you want and that which will be of service. Those extra minutes you spend meditating with intent can save you years in wasted effort and opportunity.

    After all – burnout is not sexy.

  • Remove the Ego! ⋆ We, They, You… not I

    It’s not about you.

    Wayne Dyer said it. Louise Hay taught it. Gabrielle Bernstein felt it. Neale Donald Walsch wrote it.

    When I started Millennial Manifestor, I wanted to try a completely new approach. Even though I had already pursued things for passion or creativity and not just money alone, I had never pursued something that wasn’t a quest for personal satisfaction. And yet, by not seeking personal gain, I’ve gained more than anything I have ever done before. More than everything combined, in fact.

    Removing the ego and thinking in terms of “We”, “They” and “You” means that you are always focusing on what is in the highest good of others and not necessarily what is best for you (the “I”). It means you have the fuel to keep burning late at night because the stakes are higher than just yourself. You have not only got yourself to let down, but everyone that you are here to serve.

    There is a divine mission within each of us, and while you will learn and grow from uncovering your mission and sharing it with the world, your mission is really something which just travels through you to in order to reach a collective “We”, “They” or even a single other “You”.

    At the Mind, Body & Spirit convention I went to in Birmingham last weekend, I had an intuitive reading from the Hay House author, Stephanie J. King. One of the messages came through loud and clear from both her channelling and the cards I pulled.

    It read: “Divine messages are not coming FROM you, they are coming THROUGH you.”

    While this is something I have intuitively felt to be true (it drives me nuts when my fiancé interrupts me mid-flow from the soul) it was comforting to get reassurance from an outside source. Maybe I wasn’t going crazy after all. It’s not about me, and that’s fine. It’s a mission that I give thanks for every day and I feel honoured to accept.

    It’s not about you either, regardless of how great you are. Your greatness has been given to you only so that you can serve others. The only thing the “I” can feel great about is having the commitment, bravery and dedication to deliver on its mission and serve outside of itself.

    The ego speaks first, the soul speaks second. Who is the loudest of the two? The ego can get so loud that it deafens us. But in the same way that empty tins rattle loudest, following the passions of the ego “I” will never deliver half as much as following the quiet calling of the soul. Serving “We”, “They”, “You” gives your message the power to spread across the world and illuminate hearts and minds everywhere. Serving the “I” impacts your life only, and even then, it is counterintuitive because it feels vacant, empty and unfulfilling.

    I read in ‘Transform Your Life” by the Buddhist monk, Geshe Kelsang Gyatso (p.136): “By practising humility and wishing for others to enjoy higher status, we accumulate a vast amount of merit. We should understand that now is the time to accumulate merit, not to waste it.” 

    Gain esteem from helping others. In the process, you will be helping yourself too. There is no greater soul high than serving your mission and impacting the world for the better. You grow; your soul grows; the world grows.

    Focus on “We”, “They”, “You” and see what happens.
