9 Questions on How to Find Your Life Purpose

life-purpose

Everyone on earth has a purpose. Those who know their purpose have some fulfillment in life while others, that do not know, feel lost and confused.  We all know that we are here for a reason on a subconscious or unconscious level. This article will assist you with finding your purpose and then you can take the next steps in living it out!

So, what is a life purpose?  Obviously, it is the purpose of your life or what you came here to do.  This is your dharma, or order of the Universe as it relates to you.  Your gifts and talents will lead you to your purpose and the lessons and challenges you face will teach you.  The best alcohol counselor is one who was an addict themselves.  By having an alcohol problem the person can help others because they identify with them.

We have many sciences and resources to discover our life’s purpose.  Divination sciences such as astrology (Chinese, Western, Jyotish or Vedic), numerology, oracle cards, I Ching and resources like “psychics”, akashic record readings, life purpose readings and more assist people with finding out what they came here for.  These tools are great but, not necessary.  You can find out your life purpose on your own but this requires complete honesty with one’s self.

The Universe operates on the law of cause and effect.  When you ask a question you will always get an answer.  One of the keys is to ask the right questions as it pertains to YOU.  The Universe wants you to live a life of purpose and when you wake up to this reality you will notice how everything that you have is what you need and everything lines up to assist you with your mission.

Our list of questions to find out your life purpose was specifically designed to make you THINK! Make sure to be as honest as possible when you answer the questions.  There are no right, wrong, good, or bad answers.  Even “bad” can be made productive like one that hacks computers compared to one that fixes hacked computers.  Be the fixer and start living the life you came here live!

9 Questions to Discover Your Life Purpose

  1. What do you like to do even if you weren’t paid to do it?  Examples: fishing, golfing, play video games, reading, research, listen to music
  2. What are you natural talents and gifts?  Examples: writing, helping people, sports, selling/pursuasion, dancing, singing/rapping, planning
  3. What physical things make you happy?  Examples: money, houses, people, books, statues, paintings, animals
  4. What person(s) has made the biggest impact on your life?  This could be a family member, friend, celebrity, teacher, or anyone else.
  5. What qualities, gifts and personality traits do the people or person in question 4 have?  This will show you a mirror (Law of Attraction) of what is in you and give you some more gifts and talents.
  6. What was your favorite subject in school?  I always loved math.  I now use numerology alot in my work!
  7. What are you interested in?  What intrigues you?  Examples: politics, paranormal subjects, ancient mysteries, astrology, numerology, inventions
  8. What have been the biggest challenges in your life?  Most times our challenges and lessons lead us to our purpose.  Examples: alcohol, drugs, eating, abusive relationships, unhappy childhood, poverty, racism
  9. What are your favorite jobs, careers, or occupations in the world?  Examples: teacher, preacher, truck driver, server, scientist, cook, writer
Now that you have some things to work with, put it all together.  Make a story of the answers that you made.  This story will give you direction in your life because life is a movie and you just re-wrote your script!!

Finding a Spiritual Path

spiritualpaths

Life is full of choices and decisions.  One of the purposes of life is to make choices that lead to spiritual growth and enlightenment.  This article will provide tips for finding paths on your spiritual journey.

When we look at the spiritual information and practices that are available to us nowadays most of us become overwhelmed by all the choices we have.  Do you want to study numerology or astrology?  What about following a discipline like Buddhism or Taoism?  Maybe you want to read about ancient Kemet (Egypt), Atlantis, or Sumeria.  Are you interested in the occult practices of magic, divination, or altar work?

In my Father’s house are many mansions… – John 14:2

There are many paths to connect with Source and your Higher Self.  Do not get caught up in your egoic mind and learn to operate from your Spirit Mind.  There really are no wrong choices, per se but, there are choices that lead to more rapid spiritual growth.  The more you increase your intuition and vibration, the better equipped you are to make higher evolved decisions.

Some paths lead to other paths and paths can lead to even more choices.  I recommend that you never become married to anything that limits you. Some paths are meant to be temporary.  Growth and evolution is the judge.

Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, the following tips will greatly assist you.  Remember, do not over think.  Go with the flow and follow that still, quiet voice (Spirit Mind) and not the loud one (Ego)!

7 Tips for finding a spiritual path

  • Following synchronicities – A synchronicity is a meaningful coincidence.  There is no such thing as a coincidence.  If something catches your attention two or more different times then it’s probably showing you something.
  • Pay attention to Signs – Signs are anything that “sticks out”.  Something that catches your attention and there is no rational reason why it happened is a sure fire sign.  Spiritual signs are like maps because they give us direction.
  • Interest/Talents/Gifts – What are you interested in?  What are you drawn to?  What comes natural and feels good to your soul?  What can you do without getting paid for it?  The answer(s) to these questions are interests that you should explore deeper.
  • Gut feeling – Anything that you come across and you get an out-the-blue thought like “ooh that is something I see myself doing” or “that’s very interesting” or just a feeling of natural attraction then follow that particular path and see where it may lead.
  • Numerology & Astrology – There is much information in our birth dates.  As a professional numerologist and astrologist I see the power in the day you were born as it influences gifts and lessons.  Study your life path in numerology and get an astrological birth chart.
  • Oracle cards – Oracle cards in the form of Life Purpose cards can provide insight into paths to take.  You can cast a spread yourself or get a reading from someone you trust.
  • Study your dreams – Dreams reveal to us significant information to help us on earth.  Dream recalling and decoding can lead to exponential soul growth.  Keep a dream journal and listen to and follow through with what your soul is saying to you.

What is Third Eye Activation?

what is third eye activation

The purpose of this article is to explain what the activation of the Third Eye (3rd eye, pineal gland) is in a practical way that can help you in your everyday life.  Believe it or not, everyone uses their Third Eye unconsciously.  By recognizing your Third Eye’s potential, you exponentially increase your inner vision and guidance that will help you in your waken reality.

The Third Eye is your pineal gland which is located in the center of your brain.  The pineal gland literally has a lens, cornea, and retina, hence the term, third eye.  A better name for it would be the first eye as all things derive from the spiritual, or unseen, as in thoughts become things.  The thought is the unseen and the physical manifestation of that thought is the thing.

Activation means to begin or initiate.  By using your Third Eye consciously, you activate your inner vision in a more controlled and recognizable manner.  Your two physical eyes help you get around this physical, material world while your third eye provides inner vision and guidance.  See it as your own personal GPS in this physical reality.

When you are asleep, your Third Eye is fully active.  What we call dreaming is actually your spirit (soul’s energy; what animates the body) traveling in different dimensions and planes of existence.  Your soul is actually released through your Third Eye.  The pineal gland is a portal or gateway for your soul.  Rene Descartes, famous French philosopher, dubbed the pineal as the “seat of the soul”.

Your physical eyes are closed and resting when we dream yet you see people, places, and things during your third eye adventures or dream state.  You can have greater vision and clarity when you actively use your powerful Third Eye.  When you are able to “see,” understand, and connect with the unseen, you dramatically improve your overall quality of life by being able to distinguish and understand the messages provided to you by the Spirit World.

We are constantly receiving messages, signs, and symbols from the Spirit World.  You can call them your ancestors, god(s)/goddess(es), spirit guides, angels or your higher self.  The terming is not important but the messages can be life transforming.  Third Eye Activation (dot) com is a result of message receiving, gathering, interpreting and applying.  Activating your third eye will enable YOU to better receive and understand these messages and signs.

Some of the benefits of Third Eye activation are:

  • increased intuition
  • better direction in life (GPS)
  • knowing your life/soul purpose
  • more psychic awareness
  • never feeling alone
  • better health & well-being
  • clearer and more vivid dreams, astral projection, lucid dreaming
  • knowledge of self (spiritual being in a physical reality)
  • connecting with non-physical beings (creator, god(s)/goddess(es), spirit guides, ancestors, angels etc.)
  • increased overall knowledge
  • reduced risk of danger

It’s important to know that the Third Eye is not just a “visual tool”.  We all have different spiritual gifts.  These gifts are delivered through your Third Eye.  By activating your Third Eye, you will see if you are a healer, psychic, medium, teacher, counselor, clairvoyant (seeing beyond the physical), clairaudient (hearing beyond the physical), clairsentient (feeling beyond the physical), prophet, seer, empath etc.  These spiritual gifts will help you tremendously in this physical world.

When you activate your Third Eye and develop your subconscious mind you become the co-creating god or goddess that you came here to be.  The Universal Prime Creator gave us these tools for us to learn, grow, and create.  Unlock your unlimited, eternal mind power and start living with purpose!

Chinese Astrology Animal Characteristics & Chart

Chinese Astrology Zodiac Animals

Chinese Astrology has been around for thousands of years.  It was based off of astronomy (the study of matter in outer space).  Chinese Astrology, depending on birth year, gives a person insight on their innate abilities, characteristics, likes & dislikes.  Maybe this is why you seem to have a lot in common with your graduation class.

The information based on your birth date is not the end all be all.  Factors like how you were raised, physical/mental ailments, environment, life circumstances and many others have significant involvement into your whole make-up.  Chinese Astrology is somewhat general, but from my research & applied practices, it is on target the majority of time.

Know thyself. This information is important because if you do not know who & what you are, you are destined to make the journey to your destiny difficult.  We all know someone who has a VERY negative quality about them but they swear up and down that it’s not so.  I feel that most people have an easier time analyzing and breaking down someone else but the person in the mirror gets all benefits of the doubt.  To know yourself inside & out and up & down forces you to confront your shortcomings and/or unproductive character traits.

Chinese Astrology, or any predictive science, can help you begin or continue on your path.  The information can help you with your life purpose, occupational outlook, social events & gatherings, parenting, business management and any other situation that you deem fit.

Using Chinese Astrology to Help Determine Your Life Purpose

To determine your life purpose, take the gifts under your specific animal and write the ones that “fit” you down on paper.  Leave out what you feel doesn’t apply to you and add some of your own.  I say add some of your own because you know yourself best.

The key is to find an occupation or purpose that allows you to utilize your gifts.  This is how you satisfy your soul and fulfill part of your purpose for incarnating.

Your life purpose is determined by what gifts you incarnated with.  Your life lessons are those things that try to get in the way.

Sometimes we accept our “positive” gifts while overlooking our “challenges”.  You’ve heard the expression “take the good with the bad”?  This applies to us.  We are a combination of positive and negative energies & good and bad traits.

It is my intention that you discover something else about yourself from this article.  Remember: a wise person works on his/her weaknesses to become a more well-rounded soul.  Happy travels!

Chinese Astrology Animal Characteristics & Traits

Rat

The Rat of the Chinese Zodiac is a doer. Not just a doer but one that can get more accomplished in less time than the average person.

Smarts. The Chinese Rat is usually not short in the common sense & knowledge departments.

Good advice giver. But beware, they do not like to receive advice. In fact, they usually won’t ask for your opinion.

A lover of fine cuisine. But don’t expect them to cook it!

It is a common trait that most Rat year born persons rather get paid off their intelligence over actual labor.

Argumentative. The Rat is endowed with plenty wit and enjoys verbal jousting.

Penny-pinchers to the max. The Rat year born soul just worries about his/her finances and thriftiness is just part of their make-up.

It is generally believed that Rats birthed in the winter season will worry about not having food for the majority of their life.

All in all, Rat year born folks are good people. It’s hard for them to open up all the way. They are quite talkative in comfortable surroundings but their shrewd demeanor at times, causes them not to keep a lot of friends. In fact, the Rat is quite content with curling up solo and feeding their brain with a good book or an informative documentary.

When it comes to matters of the opposite sex, the Rat has no problem attracting attention because of its natural charismatic personality. In fact, the Rat can be quite charming. The ladies of this sign do have the tendency to live through their significant other as opposed to complimenting them.

Rats on a lower plane of thinking, feel a sense of entitlement. Living off someone freely, borrowing and not paying back, overly asking for favors is done without a blink of an eye. This is a Rat that has not faced their challenges head on and has suppressed all their negative energy.

Ox

The Ox Stubborn.  Stubborn.  And stubborn.  The Ox takes the cake in this category.

Family and friends are 1, 2 & 3.  Oxen are not too accepting of those outside of their circle.

Most Oxen enjoy gardening and outdoor yard work.  They really do have a green thumb.

Oxen are usually the last ones to demand center of attention at a party or get-together.

Hard worker.  Ox year born people will work to the tilt for what they want.

Security first.  Specifically, financial security is one of their main priorities.

No risk taker here.  Oxen have the tendency to stick with what is proven.

Stern parent and disciplinarian.  They expect their kids to behave and be well-mannered.

The Ox could very well be the hardest working sign of the Zodiac.  Slow, gradual progress is all they expect.  And they are willing to labor endlessly as long as they see light at the end of the tunnel.  Their patience is a extremely valuable trait.  When most would give up and quit, the Ox keeps pushing on.

Along with their tremendous work ethic comes a huge dose of stubbornness.  This is not always a bad thing.  There are an overwhelming amount of celebrity Oxen.  They just don’t get discouraged hearing the words “can’t” & “no”.  These are traits, if used properly, that give natives of this sign very high will power.

The rage of this sign is no flowery subject.  Oxen are notorious for charging ahead with dangerous intentions.  It’s best to let them calm down before someone gets seriously injured!

Tiger

Tigers are fierce leaders so following others is not their strong point.

Up for a challenge?  The Tiger never backs down from competition.

Loyalty towards their family and close friends is second nature to the Tiger.

Tigers are pouncers, so they usually jump on things quickly and rush through it.

Injustices are not tolerated by these cats.  They will fight for the cause of the mistreated.

Natives of this sign are usually NOT motivated by just money.

The Tiger is a restless soul.  Always seeking out adventure or something out of the ordinary.  They are far from timid or afraid of the unknown.  In fact, normality is a little dull to them.

They really do attack what they go after.  Even with partners, this “breed” can end a relationship and go into another one with much gusto.  And with their natural courage and likable personality, finding takers is no problem.  Switching jobs and career paths are also likely with the Tiger.

Independent to the core.  It is rare to find a Tiger in a dependent situation.  If they are, you likely will discover an unhappy soul.  They love and need their roaming room.

Rabbit

The Rabbit. Conservative yet fashionably attractive.  Not too flashy but they are usually neatly dressed.

Can be talkative sometime but they usually are more aloof.

Private, quiet worrier.  Do not expect them to just pour their heart out to you.

Quietly stubborn.  Luckily not as raging as the Ox.

The Rabbit is quite an intuitive creature.  So it’s not surprising that they “sense” a lot of things.

Very passive.  They just don’t want to stir up trouble.

High morals and impeccable manners, the Chinese Rabbit truly is graceful.  Rarely do they say the wrong thing.  They much rather keep it to themselves.  As poker faced as they are, you wouldn’t be able to tell if anything was wrong anyway.

Excellent with finances.  The natives of this Zodiac sign can control their splurging more than most.  It is a high priority for their life to be financially stress free.  As a matter of fact, they try to ensure that every aspect of their life is peaceful.  Extremely docile sign.

Rabbits do claim to be “under the weather” more than other signs.  Their health is something they constantly think about.  Even the ones in great shape consciously are fidgety when it comes to their health.

The biggest worrisome characteristic of the Rabbit, is their total private, secretive and sometimes secluded life.  They just are detached, for the most part.  It would serve them well to open up a little more and show some vulnerability.

Dragon

The Dragon. Insert foot in mouth.  The Dragon is notorious for blurting out the first thing that comes to their mind.

Quick temper.  This short-tempered fire breather can flare up in a ball of rage at the drop of a hat.

Natural born leader.  Those that follow this breed do so willingly.

Sense of self-entitlement.  Nothing is off limits, in their eyes.

Dragons usually make a lasting impression, rather by choice or chance.

Gifted with intelligence and intuition, Dragons are decisive and are usually right more than wrong.

Competitive spirit.  The Dragon does not like being second to anyone.

Being the only mythological creature, in the Chinese Zodiac, there is certainly an air of mystery with this sign.  They are not the type to express their inner most feelings.  To know a Dragon, is to know what they allow you to know.

Born with boundless earthly knowledge, the Dragon sometimes offers unwanted advice.  They truly can plan someone’s life but their tact can be harsh and straightforward.  Honesty is their policy.

Revolutionary crusaders.  The Dragon has a sense of duty when it comes to the inhumanities of society.  It is not rare to find Dragons on the front lines of any protest or revolt.

Compassionate and full gusto.  Dragons are full of energy and pour their all into whatever they take up.  They lead by example and are sensitive to those that follow them.

Very loyal to their family and friends.  This sign is a natural protector of their loved ones.  Even with their selfish tendencies, there is absolutely nothing they won’t do for those that are close to them.

A Dragon on a lower plane of thought can be quite secretive and very unfaithful.  Since to them nothing is off limits, extramarital affairs can occur.  A dragon can live a double life without sparking any suspicions.

Snake

The Snake. Attractive and charming.  The Snake epitomizes the art of seduction.

Pre-wired with wisdom galore.  The Snake always relies on its natural intuition.

Philosophical mind.  These deep thinkers have a way of just knowing.

Very intelligent and well-spoken.  Snakes can talk you in or out of almost anything.

In relationships, the Snake can sometimes become very jealous and possessive.

This sign detests being the butt end of jokes.  This could be because of their insecurity at times.

The wisdom of the Snake is what separates this sign from its brothers and sisters in the Chinese Zodiac.  They “feel” their way through life carefully avoiding dangerous situations.  Conflict is the last thing on their minds.  They would rather much bask within their minds or feed themselves with food for thought.

Snakes are as calm as they come.  They rarely find reasoning to let their emotions get the best of them.  Retreating and devising a scheme or plan suits this sign the best.  The Snake is the master of plotting.

This sign is very private and secretive.  They just do not like letting others know too much.  They will throw you off if you suspect anything that they do not want you to know.  Diversion is their language.

Quietly unassuming allows the Snake to be extremely manipulative.  This breed, in a lower thought plane, can cause chaos in any situation.  Armed with their patience, they can carry out a scheme for a long time.

Snakes make good friends to the ones they truly adore.  Giving their time comes easier than lending money though.  They can be a little stingy.  But they will work side by side with their loved ones that need help.

Horse

The Horse. Considered one of the most “masculine” of the Chinese Zodiac, the Horse is usually dominant in a lot of areas.

Extremely independent.  Most natives of this Zodiac sign leave home earlier than most.

Very talkative and friendly.  They attract numerous friends because of their magnetic persona.

The Horse demands center of attention…..all the time.

Quick witted and clever, they usually are never lost for words.

Lover of kids.  They love life and children are life’s pride and joy.

Very hard worker.

The Horse is a high energy, spirited soul.  Their zest for life is contagious.  They give their all into whatever they take up.  Luckily, this sign is very versatile so they grasp onto things quickly.

The Horse is usually going 100 miles per hour at all times, so it’s not surprising that they fall in love quick and hard.  They are usually good providers to their families as long as their partner allows them their much needed independence.  It’s their natural tendency to roam.  They just don’t like being idle.

A control freak and an order barker.  Horse year born people just feel a need to have their fingerprint on everything.  Their way or the highway.

A Horse in the wrong frame of mind can be very childish and contradictive.  A grown person throwing a temper tantrum can seem extreme but this sign can really do it.  And to say one thing and do the opposite, well let’s just say that the Horse does this with ease.

Sheep

The Sheep and all its elegance is considered the most feminine of the Chinese Zodiac.

Very intuitive.  The Sheep is wired with psychic abilities.

No need to worry about this sign causing violent chaos.  They avoid conflict at all cost.

Day dreamer.  The Sheep is often somewhere deep in thought.

Naturally “motherly” and nurturing.  This sign is excellent with kids.

Sticks with what is traditional.  Rarely will you find the Sheep drifting into the unknown.

Money spender.  Why save when you can just buy?

Indecisive.  They really do have a hard time making up their minds.

Quite the worrier.  They just can’t keep them negative thoughts out of their heads.

The Chinese Sheep is one of the most artistic signs of the Zodiac.  Music, fashion, art, cooking and the such, appeal to Sheep like breath to life.  And they are excellent in whatever art they pursue.

Being somewhat suspect in new surroundings, Sheep need the security of familiar environments.  Give them comfortable space and interesting people, you will find a happy go lucky soul.  Even though they require thinking time alone, they really enjoy socializing with prominent, relevant people.

The Sheep is very fashion forward.  To find a Sheep dressed in anything less than stylish garb, is like finding a fish out of water.  Sheep have been known to check the mirror more than a few times to go just about anywhere!

True nature of the Sheep can be quite challenging.  Since a sheep is covered with wool, sometimes it’s hard to discover their real self.  Armed with this natural defense, the Sheep can keep their identity concealed for as long as they want.

Sheep on a lower thought plane, can be extremely dependent.  A rich sugar daddy or mama appeal to these souls.  Why get their own when someone will provide it to them.  And with their desirable traits, the sign usually gets what it wants.
