How to Find Your Purpose

The power of purpose

Are you living your life or reacting to life? Is your life fulfilling, or is there something missing? You are a very important person. You are the expression of divine creation. You have a specific life purpose. Many people have no idea they have a life purpose. They don’t think of themselves as important enough to have a purpose. Many may know they have a purpose, but don’t know how to find it.

Symptoms of Seeking Your Purpose

We are living in a time of global awakening, and an important part of that awakening is searching for your purpose in life. If you are experiencing frustration with your life, it could be an indication of your personal awakening. Your spiritual self knows your purpose and is trying to live it. If you are not in alignment with your purpose, your spirit may be letting you know you need to make some adjustments.

If you are not clear about your life purpose, you may be experiencing the following symptoms. You may be struggling with a sense of urgency that there’s something you need to do, but you don’t know what it is. You may be feeling empty or you may have a sense that there is something more, even though you are considered successful. You may be feeling exhausted, frustrated, or confused. Maybe you’re just tired of the same old thing, or maybe you lack direction.

My experience is typical. Even though I was living my life purpose, I felt restless. I had a feeling that there was something missing, and I was longing to know what it was. I was around age 35, when most people begin to take stock of their lives. Although I was unaware of it, a new and important numerological influence was coming into my life – the power boost for the rest of my life. When I discovered my Chaldean Soul Chart and understood its influence, I felt secure – as if I had come home.

Around the ages 35-45, we begin to awaken to more possibilities. If we are not following our life path, this time is described as a mid-life crisis. Unaware of what is happening to us, we may search for fulfillment by acquiring more things, such as our dream car, a big house with a pool, or a new relationship. In the long run, we find that these things do not fulfill us. There’s nothing wrong with acquiring things; it’s the reason for doing so that’s important.

The function of the midlife cycle is to prepare us to do our greatest work. If we are following our life plan, we begin our greatest work in our early 50s. Our whole life has been leading up to this time. It can be the most satisfying and fulfilling period of life if we are following our plan.

Why is Your Purpose Important?

Each of us has something special within us that no one else has. Our uniqueness contributes to the well-being of everyone on earth. No one is unimportant; nothing is unimportant. Your life affects everyone whether your dream is to be a homemaker or a rocket scientist. If you are living a fulfilling life, you are raising the energy of the entire world.

It’s important to live your purpose because your life plan contains critical goals you, as a soul, have set for your fulfillment. You deserve to live a joyful, miraculous, adventurous life. You are a brilliant creation meant to express your unique talents and abilities in the world.

Many of us have learned to put our dreams on hold in order to provide for ourselves and our families. We say we’ll start enjoying life when we retire, when the kids are out of school, or when the life situation of our choice has been fulfilled. But by the time we reach that place, we may have forgotten our dream or may have lost the impetus to achieve it.

No matter what your level of education is, you have already created the most important plan you will ever conceive of – your life plan. By utilizing it, you can achieve your Master of Life degree.

How to Discover Your Purpose

Numerology provides a quick, easy way to discover your life purpose. Numerology is an occult science that is emerging as a practical tool in modern times. It provides evidence of the work you and your spirit guides did before you appeared on earth. Many feelings, thoughts, and impressions you’ve had all your life will be confirmed when you discover your purpose.

There is a specific school of numerology called the Chaldean school that provides the best system for revealing your life purpose. My book, You Were Born to Succeed: Finding Your Purpose through Numerology, is one of the few written about Chaldean numerology. You can find it on www.lulu.com. It shows you how to reveal your life purpose by learning to create your Chaldean Soul Chart.

The book is written in two sections. Part I shows you how and why numbers can tell you so much about yourself. It clarifies and demystifies the occult world and shows how ancient sciences can help us in the modern world. Part II introduces the mechanics of numerology and shows you how to create and interpret your own Chaldean Soul Chart.

Your Chaldean Soul Chart is organized in two sections; the first section indicates your Core Qualities. Your Core Qualities pertain to your personality and values. They also reveal your specific purpose, the way you intend to accomplish it, your prime motivator, your lifestyle, and the power boost you chose to activate at around age 35. The second section indicates your Cycles. The Cycles section contains four subsections; your Pinnacles, Challenges, Personal Years and Months, and Unfinished business.

The Cycles section illustrates your past, present, and future. It shows the types of experiences you chose to attract to enhance your purpose and strengthen you (Pinnacles), those experiences that will challenge you and trip you up (Challenges), challenges you may have brought with you from past lives (Unfinished Business), and your personal yearly and monthly influences.

You Deserve Your Best Life

It’s never too late to live your purpose. Even if you are not in a position to make radical changes in your life, there are ways you can begin to incorporate your purpose into your life on a part-time basis or as a hobby. You will be rewarded by the sense of excitement and aliveness you experience.

I hope you use my book to help you create a joyous, fulfilling, and exciting life beyond your wildest dreams. Click on the Lulu button to your right to download it now.

How Important Is Your Name?

It’s more important than you might think. Because of the way our universe is set up, every sound, every thought, is broadcast into infinity. Every time you or someone else says your name, every time you sign your name, its vibrational energy is broadcast throughout the universe. It is part of your spiritual identity and takes up space just as your body does, but not in the same way. Your birth name is your spiritual fingerprint. That’s why numerologists require your name as it appears on your birth certificate, even if misspelled, in order to cast an accurate profile.

 What about name changes and nicknames?

If you change your name, assume a nickname that becomes your main identifier, or if you take your spouse’s name when you get married, the new vibration has an influence on your life. The new name acts as an overlay on your birth name. It’s important that the energy of the overlay be harmonious with your spiritual fingerprint.

I had a couple of clients who illustrate this perfectly. They both changed their names because they didn’t like the ones they were given at birth. Neither one knew anything about numerology when they did this. One client was very unhappy with her life. When I discovered that she had changed her name, I calculated both names and found that her new name was in opposition to her birth name, aggravating her challenges and sapping her strengths. I helped her create a harmonious relationship between her two names just by changing the spelling of her new name. Another client who had changed her name had the opposite result. She had chosen a name that was in harmony with her birth name. Instead of adding more challenges to her life, her new name strengthened her.

I love to read biographies because I learn so much about people (including myself). I always calculate the numbers of especially intriguing and influential people I read about. When I learned from his biography that President Clinton had changed his name as a boy, I just had to calculate both his names. What I found is a clear example of the power of a name.

Bill Clinton’s Name Change

It’s easy to see, in the numbers of his birth name (William Jefferson Blythe III), the enormous charisma, intelligence, and brilliance of the man. There are two Master numbers in the core-number section of his chart. It is rare to find one Master number in a profile, let alone two. Master numbers are not about life being handed to someone on a silver platter. People with Master numbers possess a high level of intensity in the quality the number represents and a responsibility to use this quality for the higher good. I see Master numbers as another level of expression in the journey of life, and they can be as challenging as any other number. The two remaining numbers in this section show Clinton’s genuine love of people and his innate ability to relate to everyone he meets. His core numbers explain why others find him so extremely charming. His high level of sexuality is also evident in his core numbers.

Something else I see even more rarely than Master numbers is a lack of unfinished business. Unfinished business comes from an unwillingness to resolve challenges from former lives. They act as additional challenges in the present life. William Jefferson Blythe III is one of the few to come into this world with no unfinished business.

Looking at his name change (William Jefferson Clinton), I find that the qualities of warmth and inspiration in his birth name are overlaid with a need for power and a tendency toward willfulness and arrogance. These same influences leave him chasing, chasing, chasing, feeling that he can never do enough, get enough, be enough. There is a quality of distance between himself and others that makes it easy for him to dominate whenever he wants to. These core numbers influence him to be self indulgent and to take the easy way out when he gets into trouble. I can see some of these qualities in the chart of his birth name, but they are in secondary positions and could be less intrusive in his life without the name change influences. A quality in the core numbers of his birth name that could mitigate these imbalances is missing in his name change. It is the quality of introspection, seeking truth, connecting with spirit that could help him become more balanced, mature, and fulfilled. Bill Clinton’s name change gives him negative qualities that aggravate his challenges, such as opportunism, lack of responsibility, and dishonesty.

Bill’s profile is strongly compatible with Hillary’s, especially his name change profile. They are both pioneers focused on leadership and inspiration, which makes it hard to get along with each other when they are out of balance. Neither one is a stabilizing influence on the other. Both are idealistic with a strong desire to be of service to humanity. However, they need a stabilizing influence to keep them from indulging in excessive behavior that results in doing more harm than good.

I’ve enjoyed sharing this with you, and I hope you have gained from it, as well. Make it a great day.

It’s About You

You may be wondering why is this blog is called Born to Succeed. It’s because it is about you. You were born with certain qualities that make you the person you are expressing at this moment. I use Chaldean Numerology to tell you about all the traits you were born with that can make you successful, as well as the traits that can trip you up. I’ll be sharing interesting Numerology facts and stories that will entertain and enlighten you. I invite you to post questions and comments. I would love to have the opportunity to answer your questions and learn about your opinions and experiences. We can make this an exciting forum for discussion.

What is Numerology and why should it be important to you?

Numerology is an ancient science and art that is considered by many people to be at best, frivolous and, at worst, dangerous. We in the Western world are taught to focus on the material/physical side of life. Many of us don’t believe in anything else. However, we all have an untapped side of ourselves that is not physical, but can be used to help us in our everyday lives. You can’t hold it in your hand, but you experience it every day. It is the world of impressions and feelings, and it is experienced in several ways; as the voice within, as an inner knowing, as a feeling that can be physical or emotional, and as a mental or physical visual impression.

Everyone has experienced an impression through one of these channels that s/he couldn’t explain, but that produced a definite result in their life. These channels of impression are part of your non-physical energy that I call your soul or spirit. Your spiritual energy permeates and envelops your physical body and contains a great deal of information that you can learn to access and use to help you be more successful in life. Part of the information your spirit contains is your life purpose, and you can access this amazing information through Numerology. Imagine having a gold mine at your fingertips just waiting to be discovered!

What can you learn from Numerology? Numerology gives you a complete profile of your personality, your core values and traits, your past/present/future aspects, the talents you were born with, and the challenges you will face during your lifetime. It tells you how to have a fulfilling career, how to have more satisfying relationships, how to be a successful parent, how to prepare for the future, and how to enjoy your life. Can you use more fun in your life? Are you missing satisfaction in love, finances, health, or career? When you learn to be yourself, you will know more joy. When you learn to follow your path, you will find more excitement.
