“What’s my Life’s Mission?” Really? Many people seem to want to find their “life’s mission” these days. But let’s look at this question… and the shame that lays beneath it.
What is the “mission” of a rose? Or a purring cat? Does the sunrise need a mission? As if we are not good enough to exist without “doing” something that is big enough to get noticed, and acknowledged as a mission. And, as if we have some say in defining how we serve Spirit.
We merely need to be the best rose, sunrise, platypus, worm, ant (you get the picture) that we can be. If we have a “bigger mission,” we can trust Spirit to let us know. In the meantime, let’s do what is in front of our face. As Zen often states, “chop wood, carry water.” Eat well. Heal your childhood issues. After all, we picked our family of origin for that reason – to stir up Soul issues we need to work on in this lifetime.
To serve is beautiful, but only if it is done with joy and a whole heart and a free mind ~ Pearl S. Buck
Fill yourself up with Spirit, so you don’t go looking for answers from humans who you think are more gifted than yourself. There is nothing wrong with going to a Lightworker for some guidance, but your own core, your base, also needs to be solid, so you can blend that guidance with your own Spiritual Guidance.
If we are wounded, or needy, with unresolved or unrecognized issues, our radar for a healthy helper might be compromised. We need to work on ourselves in addition to any external guidance. Guidance can give us the trail map, but we are the ones that have to actually traverse the terrain.
Perhaps there is some ego in this question of “what is my mission?” What if Spirit’s mission for you is to be the best dishwasher you can be, and to help your fellow workers? I haven’t heard too many seekers jump for joy when presented with such an ordinary option or interpretation by a psychic.
In fact, people usually do not go back to the ethical, honest psychic reader who dared to verbalize such a thought. In turn, this opens the door for fake psychics and scam artists to make a living peddling their grandiose fortune-telling predictions to sad, lost people with self-esteem issues. When people long to hear some validation, they will pay lots of money, over and over to the same, and different people, to keep hearing what they want (and think they need) to hear.
Choose your sources of guidance carefully. Some well-meaning Lightworkers have their own issues that have not been addressed (sometimes in the name of pursuing their Mission). We all are here to work on our own evolution – even if we do have a grand “mission.” Lightworkers with unaddressed or unacknowledged low self-esteem can, sadly, try to fill this “soul hole” by making other people feel better, which in turn alleviates their own inner pain. Unhealed humans, trying to make others feel good as an unconscious way of holding off their own pain, and as a way to bolster ego, is an all too common occurrence in the growing “feel good” industry.
Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved ~ William Jennings Bryan
I believe the job of a Lightworker is to make themselves obsolete. We are meant to teach and assist others to connect directly with Spirit, to get validation from an internal, as well as a Higher Source. We must enhance people’s energies to motivate them to engage in their own spiritual practice, so they can enhance their own energies for the rest of their life. We do readings with the intent of encouraging and teaching people how to access their own intuition and to directly access their Guides.
When we were tribal, our Shamans lived in the village and we could see how they lived. There were no secrets. That is not the case in modern society. Choose your Shaman, or Psychic, or Lightworker with care. Look for Lightworkers who are willing to share their background with you. How have they cultivated their own spiritual energies, as well as human challenges? Do they have a balanced life? Do they even have a spiritual practice?
After all, even Olympic athletes have to train for years, no matter how gifted they are. Get details. Generalities can sometimes hide facts, and then we fill in the missing details with assumptions. Do you get the vibe that this person wants to help you progress to the point you no longer need them? Or are you getting sold more and more workshops, readings, candles, or crystals?
Find the wind beneath your own wings. Let that be your mission, and leave the rest to Spirit.
