Are you in alignment with your soul purpose?
Have you ever day-dreamed about a career change? Wondered if you’re in the right Career? Fantasised about ‘escaping’ the job you spend a third of your life doing? Dreaded going to work? If so, chances are you are not in alignment with your soul purpose.
I often have clients who are burnt out, dedicating their energy and the best years of their lives, working long hours in jobs they don’t enjoy! Immediately I am able to recognise these clients are not in alignment with their Soul purpose. I create their session to assist them in expanding and shifting their mindset, finding their purpose and empowering them to move forward fearlessly.
What is Soul purpose?
A Soul Purpose can be likened to a blue print for your Soul- the mission or ‘job’ that will allow you to truly flourish, grow and be in alignment with the highest version of yourself; the thing that we are deeply drawn to that becomes the mark we leave on the world.
We are all born as individual, beautifully unique humans. Gifted with natural abilities and an innate drive to achieve. Often from a young age it is quite apparent that one has stepped into alignment with their Soul purpose- the child who is obsessed with all things hair throughout their childhood who goes on to become a Hairdresser, the child who feels a deep connection to animals and becomes a Veterinarian, the child who is fixated on building/creating who grows up to be a builder.
As young Children we are free- free from judgment, societal pressures, conditioning and influence of our Parents/Peers/Teachers. As we grow older we are deeply influenced by these factors and it is often those external influences that cause us to end up in Careers that are not in alignment with our Soul Purpose.
Some people spend most of their lives in Careers that leave them feeling unfulfilled, lacking zest and generally unhappy under the illusion they are stuck and that it is ‘as good as it gets’. Let me share this with you- when you are in the right job, you’ll never have to work a day in your life!

How to realign
Taking the time to connect with yourself and asking yourself a few simple questions can assist you in determining your Soul Purpose.
What are you naturally good at? What are you passionate about? What activates excitement and joy within you? What did you enjoy doing as a Child? What did you want to do for a Career before you were influenced by external factors? What would you choose if it were guaranteed you’d succeed?
Knowing that you are a limitless being, knowing that the Human Brain has the capacity to learn and retain information equivalent to 4.7 billion books (3) and knowing the only thing holding you back from living a life of fulfilment, a life you truly love, is the illusion of fear….. what are you choosing?
- Remember, whatever you aren’t changing, you’re choosing!
