Desire and Destiny - Are You Living On Purpose?


We All Have a Destiny

I believe that each of us has a unique purpose for our lives here on earth. Maybe we came to learn certain lessons or to help others learn something. Maybe we came to guide and help others in their soul’s evolution. Maybe we came because we wanted to make the world a better place with our particular gifts and talents. Or maybe it’s all of the above!

We All Have Free Will

I also believe that we have free will, so even if we had a plan before taking this body we can change it if we want to, but if we want to fulfill our soul’s unique destiny it is pretty tough to change course because so many things have been set up to support us in our endeavors. When you decide to take your destiny path the universal forces align and things quickly start to unfold before you.

Of course your destiny isn’t a static path. For example, if you wanted to be an artist this lifetime it doesn’t mean that you will create the same piece of art twice. No, you will constantly be creating and refining your art form, but one thing is for sure, you will always have the urge inside of you to create and that urge will probably never go away even if you decide to pursue another career.

Follow Your Passion

That urge inside of you, can be called desire or passion and when it’s burning bright, you can light the world on fire! In my opinion the most inspiring people are the most passionate about what they do. The beautiful thing is that we are not all passionate about the same things and even if we have the same passion as somebody else we will express it in the world completely differently according to our unique gifts and abilities.

I just read somewhere that when your passion for life fades your body will start to get sick. Passion is what keeps life fresh and exciting, but unfortunately many of us have disconnected from our passions. Maybe we just have to make ends meet and survival definitely trumps passion or maybe our passion isn’t always connected to our livelihood. So I am not saying quit your day job, but what I am saying is give yourself the permission to get in touch with those inner desires that have been pulling at you. That is your soul speaking to you, it wants to be expressed. Find a way to make time to explore those inner yearnings while still attending to your earthly responsibilities.

What is My Destiny?

But what if you still have no idea what your destiny is? Well the truth is, most of us don’t know the complete details of our particular destiny. Your destiny is not revealed to you in a linear fashion but instead in bits and pieces. Pay attention to your dreams, your intuitive hits, the urges that have been tugging on your heartstrings, the opportunities that arise that just feel right where you just had to go somewhere . . .

Why is our destiny path so mysterious? Well I think it’s because our destiny is also a path of learning and growing. If we were given the exact details of our destiny we wouldn’t learn the lessons we came here to learn and without the growth our destiny path wouldn’t make much sense to us. Our destiny path is revealed as we walk it; we just have to take the first step.

If you are unsure what your destiny is you can do this simple exercise:

Sit quietly in a place you will be undisturbed and affirm to yourself, “I am now in alignment with my true destiny, everything I need appears before me now” and just sit quietly in the energy and clarity of the affirmation for a few minutes.

The World Needs You

Most of you reading this probably already know what their destiny path is, but they might be scared to take action. The trick is to have immeasurable faith and trust in your destiny path and then have the courage to act when it feels right. The world needs your gifts and talents and there is no one exactly like you!

Think Big

There are some of you that are reading this that are already on their destiny path and in that case I urge you to think bigger and extend your outreach if possible. Like I said earlier, the world needs more people living their passion!

Okay so now you’ve heard my opinions, what do you think?

  • Do you believe that people have a destiny?
  • Do you believe that people have specific objectives that they want to achieve this earthly lifetime?
  • Have you ever felt drawn to do something so strongly that you didn’t have a choice, you just had to do it and nothing was going to stop you?
  • Do you constantly ask yourself, “what should I be doing with my life?” or do you know without a doubt that you are living on purpose?

Look forward to hearing from you!

    Just read your piece about destiny and remembering to be open to the influences that guide you along the right path while, at the same time, earning a crust. Reminded me to keep on nurturing my spiritual self as well as my physical self. It’s easy to forget when you have your nose to the grindstone and are worried about just surviving that your soul needs some attention too. Thanks.

      Hi Anne,

      Thank you for sharing so many of us struggle with just barely getting by; however, I have found that when we do take some time to nurture our souls opportunities and insights arise for us in a way we never considered before. Best of luck to you. ~ Cecilia

    Thank you for a great article to help kick start this new year of joyful possibilities. I so appreciate ALL that you do… I wanted to focus on these words –“already on their destiny path and I urge you to think bigger and extend your outreach if possible”. These are words I personally needed to hear as I gain faith and confidence in my healing capabilities, staying focused and facing doubt with courage…sometimes with bravado 🙂
    Many Blessings,
    ~ Kim
