You might not consciously remember, but before you incarnated into your current physical body, your soul made a plan for your life here on Earth, your life purpose. There are lessons you must learn in each lifetime to keep you evolving, and your spirit builds blueprints for the best ways to learn and benefit from those lessons so you can get the most out of your time here. The question is: are you following your soul’s plan and living your true life purpose?
Do You Feel Fulfilled?
When you are living in alignment with your soul’s plan, you feel more at peace with yourself and your place in this world. One of the biggest sources of negative emotions and blocked chakras for students who come to my energy healing courses and workshops has to do with feeling a lack of purpose in their lives, a nagging sense of dissatisfaction with the way they spend their days. Many times they are stuck in positions they were pressured into, or took for someone else rather than themselves. They feel out of place and unfulfilled. They are mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually drained. Does that sound like you?
I know this feeling well, as it plagued me for the years I pursued a law career until I found and accepted my true calling as an energy healer and spiritual teacher. Once I shifted my focus to be in better alignment with my soul’s plan, things just locked into place. Not only did my new career in energy medicine take off, but my entire being was uplifted.
If you feel trapped, frustrated, bored, or generally uninspired, and have consistently felt that way for a while, it may be time to admit that you are not doing what you are meant to do. You don’t want to wait until the negative emotions negatively affect your chakras and wreak havoc on your energy field and body. Living your life purpose is more than just being happy; it is important for your health.
In order to live out your soul’s design for your life, you have to first discover what it is, which you can do by clearing, charging, and expanding your sixth chakra. Your sixth chakra is also called your third eye chakra because it governs what you “see” in all its forms: physical sight, memory, imagination, perception, thought, and intuition. This chakra is the center for wisdom and the seat of psychic gifts, and when it is expanded, you can “see” beyond your basic five senses, and even beyond the physical realm, and gain access to all the information stored in the universal field from the past, present, and future. With this expanded consciousness and valuable guidance from higher planes, you’ll be able to see what is most important for you and your life, and make choices that lead you down the path you were meant to take.
Meet Your Higher Self
A healthy sixth chakra also opens the doors of communication to your higher self, where your soul contract is “on file,” so to speak. Your higher self is always aware of your soul’s purpose, but it may not be as clear to your personality once you are on the physical plane. Energy healing can help you clear the necessary baggage from your sixth chakra so you can connect with your higher self and access the blueprints your spirit laid out. When you know you are building on the right foundation, you can feel confident that you are making the right choices.
Here are a few ways to help clear, charge, and balance your third eye chakra so you can discover your life purpose.
1. Listen to your inner voice.
Usually your inner voice is from your spirit guides or your higher self, and either way, it’s worth listening to! The gentle—or perhaps insistent—nudging to get you to follow your passion or escape a miserable job is most likely an attempt to get you back on track, to guide you toward the path you are supposed to be traveling in this life. Whatever you are meant to do in this body at this time, your higher self and spirit guides know what it is, and will never steer you wrong. Energy medicine techniques like journaling and meditation are a great way to release your emotions and quiet your mind to allow space for your wise inner voice to speak up.
Since the sixth chakra is all about imagery, try closing your eyes and visualizing yourself reaching your goals. Picture yourself in your dream career, your dream situation. What does that look like for you? Where do you see yourself in one year, five years, ten years? Really play out the scenarios on the internal screen of your mind. Visualizations help you clarify your goals and give you the confidence to reach them. Visualizations also strengthen your intuitive abilities. Don’t be surprised if you develop a sixth sense like telepathy or clairvoyance as you raise the vibrations of your sixth chakra.
3. Be open.
Being aware of and open to multiple possibilities and outcomes can lead to opportunities you would never have consciously expected, but that your soul knew about all along. If it feels right, don’t be afraid to take a risk. Yes, your soul has a plan, but it may not look exactly like your current one, and if you are too narrow in your expectations, you might miss something amazing. Allowing yourself to see the bigger picture is part of developing your third eye chakra and your intuition, and following your true life path.
