Life purpose is a mysterious and important key to our spiritual growth. It's like the magical treasure that gives meaning to life.
Uncovering and living our life purpose takes each of us on a journey into the unknown. Unfortunately, without having a treasure map (tangible way to find it), your life purpose may seem elusive.
This can be disappointing. Each of us is here for a reason. And each of us has a life purpose that's uniquely special and deeply fulfilling. It's the key to feeling fully alive and excited about where life is taking us.
Not knowing what our life purpose is right away is common. After all, self-discovery is an essential part of the evolutionary journey.
Spiritually, each of us is on a treasure hunt to find the answers to life's "big questions."
What are life's "Big questions?"
Who am I?
Why am I here?
Where am I going?
Many people simply aren't ready to answer these questions and solve the mystery of their life purpose. Fortunately, if you are really interested, you can be different. You can get the keys.
The Keys to Uncovering and Living Your Life Purpose
There are tools that just about anyone can use to uncover their hidden treasure and live life to the fullest.
To begin, it's essential to understand that your life is holistic. Everything is connected and everything has meaning. This means that you have a natural connection to your life purpose.
When the desire to know who we really are awakens,
a door opens to some magical opportunities.
We've been dedicated students of spiritual growth for more than three decades now. It has always fascinated us to learn more and discover new ways to accelerate spiritual growth.
Over the years, we've learned and developed some powerful tools and techniques for learning about who we truly are. We also discovered that teaching these tools is an important part of our life purpose. So here we are.
When we created our courses in Holistic Life Coaching and Healing, we provided some wonderful tools both to access your true identity and better yourself by overcoming blocks that stand between you and the realization of your life purpose.
The Importance of Knowing Yourself
Knowing ourselves in a deeper ways is an essential key to our spiritual growth. Each of our souls developed a purpose and plan for our life before we were born.
It's a mystical journey. And as we evolve and grow, we can open to the unique gifts we have to offer.
A Holistic Approach to Life Purpose
We value a holistic view of reality as being the most objective and transformational for a reason. It shows us how everything is connected and everything has meaning. Holistically, our energetic makeup also holds the keys to unlocking our soul's gifts, which are our greatest joys and the things that make us feel most alive.
It's encouraging to realize that everything happens for a reason.
Our lives have been carefully orchestrated by our souls along with the beings of light who support us in the higher realms. As part of our life plan and purpose, we face fears and weaknesses that we need to overcome to open to our life's purpose.
How Fear and Joy Relate to Knowing Yourself
You may wonder why we have to work so hard to overcome fear and achieve true joy. The journey is designed this way. As we evolve, we gain the wisdom we will need to come fully alive and for our soul's gifts to blossom.
For each person, the frequency of one of the seven major energy centers (chakras) represents the gifts our soul came to share in this life. It is also part of our life plan to arrange circumstances in our lives that transform our greatest lessons and fears into our greatest gifts and joys.
For those who are unfamiliar with the energy field and the chakra system, the chakras are energy centers that exist in and around different parts of the body. There are seven major chakras and many more minor chakras. Each of the major energy centers corresponds with a specific aspect of life.
The following is a summary of the seven major chakras, along with general descriptions of the focuses; the lessons, which represent the fears to be transformed; and the gifts, which represent the expression of joy, love, and freedom connected with each one.

How Your Ability to Know Yourself Fits into the Picture
As you review this list, you may recognize parts of yourself in the descriptions of the chakras. The key is to recognize which chakra stands out as your greatest lesson and greatest gift.
Here's a clue. Within the chakra that is your greatest lesson and greatest gift, you will find lessons that weave through and underscore your experiences with all of the other aspects of your being.
Your greatest lesson and greatest gift holds the key to realizing your life purpose and open to all of the blessings life can bring.
Understanding which chakra represents your soul's greatest gift gift can allow you to view your experiences from a higher perspective. This understanding can provide surprising insights into what your soul is here to accomplish.
The realization that each of us is here with uniquely special lessons and gifts can also help each of us to understand and honor the differences between us.
Rather than creating divisions between people, we can love and accept each other for our differences.
A person whose gift is in the second chakra, with an orientation toward sexuality and/or nurturing is going to experience life much differently than a person whose gift is in the seventh chakra, with an orientation toward ideas and reasoning. Each gift has its place.
The combination of all of the gifts provides us with resources to fill all of the roles needed within our society. They also call us to overcome the limitations we need to transcend to move into a higher level of reality.
