Seven Simple Steps to Living Your Life Purpose

image001
Lucky Seven Look Within

 

Now that you’ve done your Chaldean Soul Chart, how does it feel to put your life purpose into action? How will it change your life? What will your family and friends think? How do you actually do it?

Scary is Fine

You will encounter fear when you change your life. It’s perfectly natural because you are entering unknown territory. Just remember, everyone else who takes on this journey is experiencing scary times too. I’ll talk about practical ways you can deal with fear in another post.

You will see that dreams and passions you’ve had since childhood are revealed in your Chaldean Soul Chart. Deep in your soul, you have known all along what you want to do with your life, but you haven’t given credence to your inner knowing.

Maybe you thought your dreams were only wishful thinking or impractical nonsense. Maybe you got the message from others that you can’t make a living doing what you love, maybe you have obligations to your family or your job, or maybe you’re afraid to share what you’d love to do because others have made fun of you.

If it’s so hard to step out and be who you are, why bother? It’s safer to hide in old habits. But if you keep on hiding, you continue to feel incomplete – empty inside, between a rock and a hard place.

The Key

The key to living your purpose is congruence. When your outer actions reflect your inner feelings, when your inner self and your outer self are in alignment, you have congruence. Congruence is really the only form of fulfillment; it is an end in itself. Think about it. Everything good grows from it. Congruence creates happiness and inner peace. True success unfolds from congruence.

Congruence requires courage, which you have in spades, even if you don’t think so. Remember, you already have everything you need to live the purpose you have chosen.

The Seven Simple Steps

These steps are simple, but not easy. You will be flying in the face of your old self, moving out of your comfort zone, and upsetting some people in your life. But these steps will help you navigate the conflict and confusion that will show up on your journey to living your best life.

1. Thoughts become things. Change your thoughts, change your life. “Be, Do, Have” are timeless words of wisdom. Notice the order of those words. First, be that which you want; second, do that which is necessary to get what you want; third, you then are ready to attract what you want.

Become the master of your consciousness. Start by making time every day for at least five minutes of meditation. It doesn’t have to be complicated. Merely getting quiet (sitting in a comfortable position – not lying down) and focusing on your breathing will give you peace and enlightenment. Use a timer. When your mind wanders, bring your focus back to your breathing. This simple process will clear your mind and help you get in touch with your soul.

2. Start small. Go with your soul-driven desire and begin to practice it like a hobby. This is about creating your new life, so make time every day for action. Even if it’s only a few minutes a day at first, give yourself this vital gift. If you’d love to play the piano, draw or paint, be a crafts person, a librarian, an economist, work with animals, be a counselor, get married and have babies, whatever it is, take lessons, go to school. If you can’t afford to go to school full time, take one course at a time, become an apprentice, or research on your own.

3. Find a community. Look for like-minded people to hang out with. Search for groups in your local area, join meet-ups, and find groups online in social media and forums. Although online associations definitely have value, face-to-face contact is more important.

4. Find out from the horse’s mouth what it’s like to live the lifestyle. Contact people who are doing what you want to do and interview them over coffee. Call them up (no texting or email) and tell them you’ve always wanted to do what they’re doing and you’d like to learn about their day. If they live far away from you, set up Skype chats. Complete strangers will be thrilled to share their experience with you.

5. Reassure your loved ones. Nobody likes change. Once you start to change your behavior, they will try to change you back to your old self. Let them know what you are doing and reassure them that you still love them. If that doesn’t work, see step #6.

6. Being true to yourself is your first priority. Learn to say no. When friends or loved ones want you to get back into old habits, just say no. Some friends will fall by the wayside, but that’s fine; to each his (or her) own.

7. If you have a job you hate, don’t quit. You need the money or you wouldn’t be there. Instead, apply yourself to doing the very best you can at it. Talk yourself into loving the parts of it you hate. As you change your attitude, you’ll see changes in your environment. I’ll go into that in another post. For now trust me, it works.

Learning to live your purpose takes discipline and commitment. But it also opens up your life to more fun and creativity than ever before. Enjoy the process.

I wish all good things for you as you begin your great adventure. Please share your comments, questions, and experiences. For the first time in human history, we have the opportunity to effect positive change on mass consciousness just by being true to ourselves. The possibilities are endless.

 

 

 

 

 

 

You Are More Than You Think You Are

Your Cycles – Personal Years and Personal Months

The shorter cycles of Personal Years and Personal Months tell you where you’ve been, where you are now, and where you are going, just as the longer cycles do. Since these cycles are shorter, you get a more immediate picture of the flow of your life.

Your cycles proceed in an orderly fashion whether you are aware of them or not. You don’t have to try to follow your cycles. Appropriate experiences appear before you automatically. The process is effortless. You choose whether or not to flow with your cycles. The trick is to have faith and allow yourself to go with the flow. If you find yourself traveling a bumpy road full of frustration, chances are you may be resisting the cycle you are in.

If you’re like me, and want understanding along with faith, learning about your cycles will make life easier. Since I’ve learned about my cycles I feel more secure about the present and future. In fact, I feel excited about the potential opportunities that are opening up for me.

Currently, I’m in a number 9 Personal Year, which can be challenging because it’s about ending in all its forms. Relationships may change or come to an end, jobs or certain routines can change or end, objects may be lost, attitudes can change radically, and streamlining your environment becomes important. Unpleasant endings are less upsetting for me than they were before because I know these experiences are ultimately for my good and are preparing me for the next 9-year cycle full of new opportunities.

Your Personal Year cycles are, obviously, one year in duration. They begin on your birthday and end the day before your next birthday. In reality, you sometimes begin to attract the experiences of your next Personal Year up to three months before your birthday. Here’s an earlier post about Personal Years that goes into more depth.

Knowledge of your Personal Months can enhance the experiences of your Personal Years and contribute to a strong foundation as you welcome new experiences into your life. The interpretations below apply to both Personal Years and Personal Months.

rsz_personal_years_personal_months_003

Interpretations

Number 1:

The beginning of a new cycle, this is a time of initiating, starting new projects, making new plans, meeting new people, taking the lead, following your own instincts and intuition. Express your individuality, stand up for yourself, and establish independence. Hesitation or lack of initiative will set you back.

Number 2:

This is a time for cooperation, partnerships, working in harmony with others, and creating peace within and without. It’s a time to develop the new projects and ideas of the Number 1 period, attending to details, networking, friendship, and collaboration.

Number 3:

This is a time for branching out; social activities, self expression, promoting yourself and your projects, and creativity. It’s a time to enjoy the lighter side of life by entertaining, going out with friends, and getting involved in the creative arts. Projects involving words, such as writing, lecturing, teaching, or singing are emphasized.

Number 4:

This is a time for building, for creating routines and systems that make life easier, patiently attending to details, and creating a powerful foundation that will serve you and others for years to come. You may have high expenses. You will need to stay focused to be successful, as this is a demanding period that requires self discipline.

Number 5:

This is a period of change, freedom, movement, activity of almost any sort. It’s a time of adjusting to new conditions, expansion, and learning to let go. It can be quite an adventure. See changes as new opportunities for your growth and fulfillment.

Number 6:

This is a time when your attention will be on home, family, and health. Family responsibilities come forward at this time, and there could be changes in your home. Pay attention to your health by taking good care of yourself. You may be taking care of a family member.

Number 7:

This is usually a quiet time, as the vibration is one of introspection, study, research, regrouping, and reevaluating. It is a time of rest, meditation, and spiritual and mental housecleaning. Allow developments to unfold for you rather than trying to force them. Make sure you get enough exercise, since your head may be in the clouds much of the time, and exercise will keep you grounded.

Number 8:

This can be a dynamic time with lots of energy. It is a good time for business success if you have grown with your previous cycles. It is a time for being organized, using good judgment, exercising your leadership, being efficient and practical, and thinking big.

Number 9:

As the last period in the cycle, it is a time of endings. You could be ending a relationship or a job, cleaning out your old stuff, or changing old attitudes and habits. You are letting go of conditions that no longer serve you, and sometimes it’s a relief and sometimes it’s unpleasant. In the case of Personal Years, you are preparing to start all over again with the next number 1 period.

Number 11/2:

This is an illuminating and inspiring time full of high energy and deep sensitivity. It is a time to evaluate your motives and ethics and make adjustments where necessary. You will not be satisfied with casually brushing things off. You will be motivated to be the best you can be, setting new standards of excellence for yourself.

Number 22/4:

This is the period to put your ideas into action. Think big, go after your dreams. Those that involve service to others will be successful. Build something that serves mankind. Take charge and watch your dreams unfold.

Number 33/6:

This is a time for communication and unselfish service. You will be involved in fulfilling responsibilities and duties to friends, family, and community. Your attention will be directed toward benefiting others. Share your love, understanding, inner peace, and serenity. Your reward will be to gain twice as much as you give. Remember to have fun.

All your cycles are calculated from your birth date. If you want to know how to calculate your own cycles, visit https://youwerebornthatway.com/about/, where you can learn about my book, You Were Born to Succeed: Finding Your Purpose through Numerology. It’s easy to order, and it will show you how to calculate all the numbers for your Chaldean Soul Chart, plus a lot more about what it means to be a spiritual being having a physical experience.

It’s been fun to share the elements of numerology with you in this series. I hope you’ve gained a better understanding of this dynamic and practical occult science. And I hope you’ve begun to see it as a powerful tool you can use to help you live the life of success and happiness you were meant for.

Cycles – Unfinished Business

Unfinished Business occurs when you have ignored a Challenge lesson you selected in a previous lifetime. We have free will, so we can choose to skip a Challenge cycle. However, the decision comes with a price – we still attract the experiences that represent that Challenge, and we will do so until we decide to resolve it.

I have found that very few people come into this life without unfinished business. When I see a chart free of Unfinished Business, I know the person has had a very high level of commitment to spiritual growth. Most people have at least one instance of Unfinished Business on their Chaldean Soul Chart, which can be seen as an additional Challenge in their lives.

When I learned my Unfinished Business number, I saw exactly how it was playing out in my life.

Can you see a trend of Unfinished Business in your life in the following interpretations?

rsz_Unfinished_Biz

Interpretations

Number 1:

Indicates in the past a lack of ambition, laziness, dependence on others, fear of standing out in any way, indecisiveness, over-cautiousness, timidity, lack of self respect, and fear of anything new, conditions which are present in your life now.

You can talk a good show, but there is often no action to follow it up. You will not achieve anything without working for it. Success is yours when you develop the courage of your convictions and stand up for yourself while keeping your cool. You need to be the leader.

Number 2:

In the past you were impatient with details, disliked following rules and directions, you were tactless, undisciplined, you lacked direction, lacked self-confidence, were irresponsible with money, and so you have these challenges now.

You may have trouble bonding in intimate relationships. Learn to cooperate with others in order to accomplish anything in this lifetime, and learn to come out of your shell and contribute to the group. Your life is full of details that you must handle. Working with your hands on creative projects can be quite enjoyable.

Number 3:

In a past life, you were afraid to express yourself or promote yourself and your ideas. You had a pessimistic view of life. You lacked imagination and didn’t enjoy life much. You may want to share a great deal with others, but feel you are unable to. You are faced with situations which require you to reveal yourself.

Three is the number of happiness. Learn to express yourself and develop a realistic, optimistic view of life. Learn to be grateful and see the beauty in life. You could take singing or dancing lessons, or join a theater group or public speaking group. Do not paint or draw, as these activities can be isolating, unless you are prepared to have regular exhibitions of your work (social media do not count). Writing can be satisfying if you participate in writer’s groups and read your work in public.

Your creativity, your sense of humor, your friendliness, and anything that brings joy to you will also bring joy to others.

Number 4:

You avoided hard work, discipline, and orderliness in the past, and have challenges with these issues now.

In this life, you need to establish a firm foundation for yourself. Plan your life and work your plan. Stay focused, have patience, practice discipline, be systematic and orderly, and take care of details. Working with your hands could be pleasant for you and would teach you a great deal. Follow through on your responsibilities. Other people will appreciate your dedication, and so will you.

Number 5:

The number 5 is seldom lacking in a person’s name, but if it is lacking in yours, life seems to be a series of changes, new things to adapt to, and emergencies of all kinds. Avoiding these in previous lifetimes magnifies their presence in your life now.

Learn to welcome change and let go of things and relationships that no longer serve you. Interact with and appreciate all kinds of people, adapt to new situations, and handle emergencies responsibly when they come along.

Number 6:

You have avoided responsibility in the past. You were afraid of being tied down, especially to family duties. You avoid helping others because you have been taken advantage of. You never learned the difference between helping someone and taking over. Family members are manipulative, demanding, and unreasonable. You tend to be critical and self-righteous.

You need to learn to set your boundaries and to help people without sacrificing yourself. Learning these important lessons will enable you to enjoy helping others. Remember, you are seeing yourself in others when you criticize. Give yourself a hug and a pat on the back, and love yourself just as you are.

Number 7:

You have been afraid to trust and have faith. In the past, you withdrew and feared taking action when you didn’t know what to expect. You failed to look beyond the obvious for the truth.

Learn to examine all sides of a situation before coming to a conclusion. Develop your inner knowing and your connection to inner guidance, and then trust them to guide you. You need both material and spiritual evidence to guide your life. No more denial or fuzz-ball thinking for you. You are too talented for that.

Number 8:

In the past, you feared having money, possessions, and power. You were careless, showed poor judgment, and didn’t trust your common sense, and these conditions are showing up in your life now.

Learn to develop your organizational and managerial abilities. Delegate opportunity, not responsibility. That is, take responsibility for those tasks you delegate and check up on the delegatees periodically. Always follow up with lawyers, employees, roofers, plumbers, bankers, etc. It’s not that everyone is out to get you, but that you are attracting experiences that force you to pay attention.

Get good advice before investing, and don’t lend money to anybody, no matter how much you want to help. For you, this is good judgment because you don’t get back the money you lend. Be generous in other ways. Learn to love taking good care of yourself and your things, and you can enjoy success. You deserve the best.

You’re Not Really A Computer, but…..

If you think about yourself in computer language, your physical body is the hardware of your life and your soul is the software that drives it. You are hardwired for success with top-quality software, but if that software becomes corrupted with limiting beliefs your brilliant programs start to fail. Your hardware will eventually malfunction if your corrupted software is not cleared of limiting beliefs. So you can see how important it is to take good care of yourself.

Numerology is a science that gives us specific information about ourselves which goes beyond the physical, encompassing the mental, emotional, and spiritual levels as well. I hope you’ve gained insight into your own life by learning about Unfinished Business. All of our challenging experiences are meant to wake us up to our own magnificence.

Next time, the shorter cycles – Personal Years and Personal Months.

What say you?

What is Success?

Do you consider yourself a success? If not, why not? To be honest, it doesn’t matter whether you think you’re successful or not. At this moment you are a success because you are here this minute. You showed up. If you are breathing, you are successful.

The truth is, you are successful no matter what your situation in life is – even if you feel like a failure. If you are calling yourself a failure, just think about this – if you’re breathing, you have nowhere to go but up.

But what if you want more? What about that great job, making lots of money, the big house full of beautiful furniture and mega technology, the perfect children, all those degrees that make you smarter, being the perfect parent, closets full of clothes, etc., etc.? Aren’t these signs of success? I think most of us know that these certainly are signs of success. And we know that these are signs of outer success. But there’s more to success.

How do you feel inside? Are you pretty much stress free? Are you in good health? Do you love your life? Do you feel self confident? Are there people in your life who love you unconditionally, whom you love unconditionally? Do you love yourself unconditionally? Is your behavior (most of the time) a reflection of your inner divinity? Not only that, do you realize you are a spiritual being having a physical experience and, as such, you have the qualities to create the life you’ve always wanted – without struggle, striving, and competition?

These are some of the signs of inner success. In order to be truly successful, we need the qualities of inner success to guide us in achieving outer success. The qualities of inner success help us achieve what we want and make it possible to enjoy sharing our wealth with others.

Many who appear successful don’t know what success is. We all know of wealthy, powerful people who are on their fifth or sixth spouse, who have no family life, who have health problems, emotional problems, and money problems (it doesn’t matter how much money they have, it’s still a problem).

Are they truly successful? They certainly have surpassed the basic standard of success. They are breathing. Are they contented with what they have? Do they respect themselves and others? In my view, they have a big piece of the pie but they can’t taste it because they don’t know who they are.

What if it’s true that you are successful just because you are here on earth? What if your opportunity (should you decide to accept it) is only to be who you are – to develop the talents you brought with you? What if enjoying life is an essential part of your purpose? What if facing and healing your challenges is a fantastic opportunity to create more happiness in your life? What if you’ve shown up just when the world needs you?

It doesn’t matter whether you are becoming the next Mother Teresa, or  loving life as the best dishwasher ever.

Success is really an inside job.

Live your purpose, love your life!

Your Life Purpose

Knowledge will make you free

Whether you realize it or not, your life purpose is the most important thing in your life. Living the purpose you were born for is more important than anything else you will ever do.

Perhaps you are one of the few who knows what their purpose on earth is – who knows who you are and why you are here. For most of us, the knowledge of our purpose has been buried under the shoulds, musts, do-as-you’re tolds, the hurts and misunderstandings we picked up in childhood.

I was one of those. Even though I was fulfilled in my career, I knew there was something missing. I needed to go deeper, offer more, but I couldn’t put my finger on what “more” was. My family relationships were challenging, to say the least, and my self-confidence was pretty low. A part of me felt lost in spite of my success.

I have always been fascinated by the occult, and have done research into many of the occult sciences. I had an inner knowing that there was value and wisdom in these little-known disciplines, even though they were a source of fear for many people. During my research, I came across Chaldean numerology, the original source of numerology, as far as we know. It is named after the Chaldeans, part of the ancient Sumerian civilization that sprang up in the Tigris-Euphrates valley about 6,000 years ago.

True to my habit of using myself as a guinea pig, I calculated my Chaldean numerology chart and was astounded by the results. All my vague inner longings were vividly revealed as innate strengths in my spiritual nature, validating the dreams I’d had all my life that had been judged impractical and useless by my parents and other authority figures who didn’t understand. That in itself would have been enough for me to celebrate. But there was more. I saw my past, present, and future. I saw that the abuse I experienced in my childhood was part of my unique learning process; for the first time, I new where to start to heal my hurts. I was so impressed with this that I incorporated numerology into my psychotherapy practice.

I could go on about my amazing experience that day, but the important thing is that I developed a way to structure a chart that contains all the directions we need to live a life of  meaning, purpose, and positive impact. Who says life doesn’t come with an instruction book?

If you have read my blog pages, you know about my book and my private consultations that help you re-discover the purpose you were born for. If you are one of the many whose purpose is buried under a pile of negative beliefs like mine was, I invite you to consider buying my book or booking me for a private consultation.

You are the most important person in the world to yourself. Living your purpose heals you and heals the world.

Heal Yourself with Numerology

Dreamsky and Trees

This morning I listened to a couple of interviews that opened me up to a new way of seeing the world. And they helped me to articulate my heart-felt message to you.

You are special whether you know it or not, whether you understand it or not, and whether you feel it or not.

You are no more special than anyone else, and no less special than anyone else.

If you are not aware of your specialness, it’s because of the unenlightened way you were taught to perceive yourself.

You have everything you need inside to create your own heaven on earth.

You have already created everything that’s present in your life; everything you love in your life and everything you don’t love.

You have created the relationships in your life, both the good and the not-so-good; the wealth in your life or lack of it; your good health as well as your health challenges; and your feelings of fulfillment, whether high or low.

What you don’t like in your life is not your fault. You came into this world with lessons to learn. Because you chose these lessons, you have the power to change your life.

Your Chaldean Soul chart reveals your challenges, your talents, and your abilities, as well as your life purpose. It gives you the power of knowing yourself. The secret to actually living your purpose is learning to love yourself – to appreciate both what you like and what you don’t like about yourself.

It’s easy to value the talents your Chaldean Soul Chart shows you. It’s hard to value the challenges that show up in your chart. But challenges are the source of your power to create the life of your dreams.

As you learn to love everything about yourself you become more confident. As your sense of self worth increases you share more with others. As you share more with others your wealth, health, and happiness increase.

How do you do this? You don’t have to spend years in therapy. You can heal yourself. As a matter of fact, there are now ways to resolve issues in as little as a few minutes.

I use a statement that clears issues in an instant. It goes like this: “I am the master of consciousness, co-creator god full of light, love, and joy, guided from within, one with all that is, I am Sat Nam.” This statement clears limiting beliefs and fears instantly because it speaks the truth of who you are deep within your soul. You can use it any time you experience a limiting belief or fear.

One limiting belief I’ve had is “I’m not good enough,” which comes from my Main Challenge, the number 1. When I feel that not-good-enough feeling I say, “It’s my intention to let go of the belief that I’m not good enough,” and I repeat this wonderful truth statement (which is called Kinesthetic Associative Reprogramming, by the way) and the feeling is gone. There are many layers to limiting beliefs, so one can come up in different forms.

For more information about limiting beliefs and another process you can use to eliminate them, visit Morty Lefkoe’s web site. The interviews that inspired this post were with Darius Barazandeh. Check out his web site or catch him on Facebook.

I hope you will try Kinesthetic Associative Reprogramming (also known as KAR). I’d love to know your experiences with this revolutionary healing process. Also, check out Morty and Darius, two loving teachers who can help you heal yourself.

Love yourself and live your purpose every day.
