What’s my Purpose? 5 Ways to Align with your Destiny

photoAh, it’s that big question that enters our mind at some point in life! What’s my purpose here on this planet, why am I here, what am I supposed to do, and where do I find the answers? Never fear, fear will only take you further from your true calling! Many things in life seem daunting and overwhelming. Particularly trying to figure out what it is that were meant to truly do or be. However, part of our task while were here is to seek the answers, explore life and all its many facets. So how do we begin the journey and discover our purpose rather thansulking in the shadows? Here are 5 suggestions for you to connect to your callingand align with your destiny.

1. In stillness we receive. Take some time to become quiet whether it be through meditation, sitting in nature, or simply lying down and breathing in deeply until a feeling of deep calm washes over your entire being. These are the moments when we can truly and deeply connect to what our deepest desires are and to hear ourselves clearly. When we remove all the extraneous noise, we can hear our true nature calling us into action!

2. When your out and about exploring life, when your interacting with others, when your alone and have a complete and total feeling of contentment. Pay attention to these moments. Most likely your sensing something deeper than you realize. These moments are like tiny seeds being planted for future growth. All of the tiny little moments that take your breath away, send shivers through your body, make your heart skip a beat, and remind you that life is magical. You are aligning with your destiny in these moments

3. Getting very clear on your vision. Something that makes your heart sing, that you have a deep passion for, and that you truly without a doubt whole heartedly believe in!

4. Know that your right where you need to be for the lessons to come through. Most likely what your experiencing is something that you will be teaching and sharing in the future. Obstacles are meant to teach us, to build us, and to show us how to be more fluid in life. All of these lessons are meant to be lived in order for you to understand them and connect to what your purpose is.

5. Allow yourself to evolve, to be of service without any expectations from anyone, align with your higher self through service and be love! When you know what your life’s work is you’ll have a feeling of alignment with self and others. You will fall completely and madly in love with what you do and this will ripple out into the world! You will know 100% what your purpose is because it will show up as a calling or highest purpose. Everyone of us has a higher purpose or calling in life. And everyone has a beautiful talent or service to share with the world. You will know when the heart sings loudly and all else will make way for your destiny to unfold and be revealed! Enjoy the ride!

7 Magical Ways to Make the Most of the Last of Summer

tumblr_n8zm3lrclm1st5lhmo1_1280If you are like me, summer is flying past quicker then you ever imagined it would. Which is especially true here where I live in Saskatchewan and all across North America. The Goddess of winter held on a little tighter then many of us would have liked…but that doesn’t make the sun shine any duller today! It’s time for and I to finally get serious about our summer-lovin’ routine…and have fun doing it!

Today I invite you to evoke your whimsical curiosity and free-spirited sense of adventure to make the most of the warm weather we have been blessed with. Here’s 7 magical things to do this summer to get the most out of every single moment!

1. Design a delicious Summer morning RITUAL – including a refreshing berry-infused tea with honey, a morning walk to clear your mind and morning journaling. Free write about a fairy tale you would love to live out and then set out to LIVE it.

2. Make a date with DESTINY Schedule to do 3 things you have been planning to do for years, but haven’t done just yet. Take lots of pictures of yourself creating this magic, so you can look back with excitement and gratitude of the wonderful experience you had. 

3. Become your own HEALER.  Forget the diet and start to nourish yourself lovingly everyday. Skip the processed snacks and eat lots of bright, beautiful foods – bonus for creating a whimsical new real-foods recipe to share with friends! Smoothies – cocktails – dips – make it taste DIVINE!

4. Try something RADICALLY new – seriously, jump out of a plane, try stand up paddle boarding (SUP), start a book club or even experiment with moving meditation. Vanish your self-doubt like a magician with intentional actions that build your confidence and transform your beliefs about yourself.

5. Embody delightful CURIOSITY in everything you do. In Buddhism its called the Beginners Mind. In your Yoga practice, you are always a beginner. Let that be the most beautiful place to be. You will never have it all figured out…so you might as well see life as an adventure along the way!

6. Step into the MYSTERY of the unknown. Take an adventure into your own experience through your yoga practice, journalling or even a solo-escape. 24 hours. Just you, and you. Breath life into the part of yourself that you’ve hidden away and do what your heart calls you to do. Maybe she wants to write. Maybe she wants to dance. Explore that.

7.  Be a CATALYST for beautiful change. Spread the magic by inspiring the people around you to smile more authentically, laugh more joyfully and love more deeply. You already to this every day when you smile at strangers, listen to a friend without judgment or rub your puppy on her tummy. Do this more often and see your own happiness expand outwards!
