Caught in Traffic

No, I’m not in NYC, but it sure feels like it around here. I’m caught up in Christmas prep (you know, shopping, trimming the tree, baking, etc.) and unable to keep up with blogging. I’m sure there are plenty of you out there who don’t have time to read blogs, either, so my next post in the series, “You Are More Than You Think You Are,” will appear during the first week of 2016.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to all. May this season bring you joy and wonderment.

Thanks so much for checking in to my blog.

Your Calling

You Are More Than You Think You Are

Your Spiritual Core – Your Calling, the Direction of Your Life

Last week’s post was about your Life Purpose number. This week we’ll look at your Life Direction number, the second number listed in the  Spiritual Core section of the Chaldean Soul Chart.

Your Direction number is placed in the second column of the Chaldean Soul Chart right underneath your Purpose number. It indicates the way in which you chose to express your purpose.

Your life purpose is funneled through the characteristics of your Direction number. For example, if you chose a life purpose of 3 and a Direction of 6, your purpose would be expressed differently than if you had chosen a 7 Direction number.

Your Direction number represents your soul’s calling, the most fulfilling career, job, or way of life for you – that which makes you feel excited, deeply contented, that this is where you belong. It can be a passion for something like being a parent, athletics, writing, dancing, entertaining, cars, administration, the list is endless.

Think about the thing that’s most fascinating to you. Is it your hobby, your career, is your life set up to express that right now? Or are you living your life according to someone else’s plan, hating your job, unhappy with your life, feeling empty inside?

Many people put aside their passions, unaware that their soul is calling to them; unaware that they can start now to bring their passions into their lives.

Is that you? Many have buried their passions so deeply they are unaware of them. If that’s you, this is the right time to start noticing what excites you, what wakes you up and fills your heart. Perhaps you’ll get a hint from the interpretations that follow.

Not all people with master numbers respond to the call of great mission. Some are satisfied to be fulfilled as the single-digit expression of their master number. Even when they do respond to their deeper calling, they sometimes retreat to their single-digit expression to take a break from the intensity a master number can bring.

So, did you find yourself in this article? I’d love to have your comments or questions. Next time, what motivates you.

Your Spiritual Core

Last week I introduced you to the Chaldean Soul Chart. In the next five weeks we’ll focus on the section called “Your Spiritual Core.” Today we’ll talk about your Purpose number and what it means.

Your spiritual core contains five elements; your Purpose number, your Direction number, Inner You number, Outer You number, and your Midlife Power number. On the surface, your core qualities represent your personality and the way you perceive life. This is you as you interact with your environment and the people around you. It is your natural way of being. Basically, you are here to express your core qualities – in other words, to be yourself.

The inner meaning of your core qualities represents the way you feel and think, your innate wisdom, and your standards and values. Most of us take our core qualities for granted, unaware of how unique we are, unlike anyone else on Planet Earth. They offer us opportunities to make a difference in the world simply by being who we are. Our core qualities give us all we need to achieve inner and outer success.

Today we’ll look at the Purpose numbers and their interpretations. You may be amazed to find yourself in these brief interpretations. Don’t be nervous. What you’ll learn about yourself will being joy to your heart and kindle a spark of excitement in your life.
