Discovering Your Life Purpose – God Gives Answers


Discovering Your Life Purpose – God Gives Answers
Through Barbara Rose, PhD

When you ask, “What should I do?” with respect to your choices in your life’s direction, and life purpose, the answer is always going to be what you truly prefer deep in your heart.

I must give you a real-life example from my own life to better help you understand this.

When I was approaching my forty fifth birthday, my ego had a rough time about ageing. I did a writing to God, and was given the higher perspective about ageing, which completely transformed my view about any age I will be in this lifetime.

As a result, I got excited and inspired to write a book about the topic. I asked from my heart for God to give me the book title. The title I received was, “The 7 Dynamic Spiritual Laws of Ageing Youthfully.”

Then, I truly lost interest in bringing through this book, and the whole topic. Instead, I wanted to bring through a book to help humanity specifically in the area of religion and consciousness. The title I received from God in my writings which I registered is, “Realigning Religion: Consciousness and the Survival of the Human Species” along with specific instructions about the book cover, and a detailed book description.

In my writings to God/Source/Higher Self, I asked if it was okay to not write the book about ageing. I received pages of answers and guidance, and the one sentence I feel that is most important to share with you is the following quoted from my personal journal:

Always go with where your passion is and let that be your guide as far as what to write and publish and in what order.”

You see, God, Source, your Higher Self, whatever name you feel most comfortable with when referencing pure divine guidance will always support you in what you truly want to do, so long as it will not bring harm to you, anyone or anything.

We are all in this lifetime to really live it out with passion and excitement, and it’s perfectly okay to change your mind and go in a different direction in every level of your life.

We are not static robots. We are blooming, and as we bloom and grow, our preferences may change, just as some of your own preferences have changed over the last fifteen years.

In other words, there is no “should” there is only “prefer” and you will always be supported with what you prefer, as well as when you change your preferences. I can only share this because there have been so many times when my preferences changed, such as going fully into broadcast journalism, and then dropping the whole field to move fully in the direction I am now living and loving every day of my life.

New ideas may come up, and sometimes people are not sure what the best course of action would be with respect to life purpose. The only answer I can give you is what you feel most drawn to in your heart. Sometimes, you can do several things, and not only one. You can have a day job while you integrate more of what you love into your life, until you no longer need that day job.

When you go with your deepest preferences, from the bottom of your heart, you will always be going in the direction that is for your highest good. Many times we need a multitude of life experiences that prepare us for our true life purpose, that in many cases, including mine, come into full bloom later in life.

So go easy on yourself. Keep moving in the direction you love, and when the passion dies for that area, then it’s time to change direction, and the only direction to ever go in is what fills your being with excitement!

Then you are on the right track.

If you fight your truth with guilt laden shoulds, then that is what causes stagnation, and a feeling of somehow withering inside. It’s okay to change your mind, and it’s okay to even change it again.

You are always loved and supported. The key question is, are you willing to love yourself enough to listen to your heart? When you are, then you will finally know true joy.

Answers from God About Why There is Upheaval in Your Life

Through Barbara Rose, PhD

when God answers

This update comes through me from God, Source, Creator, Spirit, All That Is, by whatever name you personally give to bring clarity, understanding and resolution in your life.

Greetings, Hello, Shalom, Salam, Namaste’, Dear Souls,

Many of you are experiencing internal and external upheaval in your life. For those who are, this update is for you and anyone who needs this.

Just at the point when the fabric of your existence, your reality seems to be crumbling before your eyes, many have been feeling deep grief, sadness, a sense of personal failure, and nervousness as what was once in place in what you called your life, is shifting, and you may have felt inner panic.

Why does the structure of your life and your reality crumble? Many of you ask this question. The answer is simple. What you see as upheaval in front of your eyes is actually uprooting that which is keeping you from living the true life you are here to live.

The ways of old that felt so comfortable must be transformed in order for you to move forward in the manner in which your deepest heart and soul desires to.

This means that what you have been afraid to face, it is now directly in front of you, unable to be ignored, so you can finally transform your fears, overcome your false perceptions of self, and honor who you are, now.

For the growth that you came into this life to make to be experienced within, all that is hindering your deepest growth now must come up to the surface. Although this may feel unpleasant, I am offering you a different perspective now. It is actually a gift. Yes, the personality does not like to feel out of control. The ego desires to validate self from external circumstances.

Your soul, on the other hand, validates itself for being, and experiencing alone. There is not a chance of your failing in this lifetime. How can you fail at growth? Your circumstances may be going through a remodeling so to speak, even if it is one that you are resisting with all of your ego’s might.

The fight and resistance is what is causing the emotional pain. If you knew to remind yourself that in order for the remodeling of your life to take place, the life you truly desire in your deepest heart, then the old structures will have to be removed.

I shall give you an analogy of a kitchen. If you have broken appliances, leaks, rotted wood, and shredding electrical wiring, is this what you truly desire? No, of course it is not. So in order for you to have the “kitchen of your dreams” the old must be removed so your appliances can be replaced. Leaks can be fully repaired. Rotted wood is pulled out and beautiful new cabinets take their place. The shredded electrical wiring is literally pulled out completely, and your kitchen is given brand new, safe wiring that will last beyond your natural life.

Dear Soul, what you may have been focusing on is how the parts of your life are being ripped out, thus panicking, or feeling deeply saddened. What you have not looked at is all that the old is being replaced with.

This is what I want you to see.

If you feel like a failure, for any reason, please shift your perception to one of being a learner. You are learning, not failing.

When you are saying, “No, No” as the old ways are no more, I ask you to say, “Yes, Yes” to the new realizations, self love, higher purpose, your deepest truth and all you have been wanting to experience as your purest essence of Self for eons, this time is finally here. It is one to celebrate.

Behind every great transformation in life, there was change from the old. Transformation is the opposite of stagnation. Either you desire brand new cabinets, or out of fear, you ask to hold on to rotted wooden ones. Your soul is drawing these experiences into your life because it is actually paving the way for you to grow, as you go with the flow, into your pure, authentic self.

As the dust settles, after you have fought, cried, pleaded, bargained, and resisted, in a short while you will be able to look back and say, “Yes, I needed the old ways to be removed so I could move into the place I am now, both inside and outside in my moment by moment life.”

Focus on what you would love to experience when you feel afraid.

Ask yourself if the upheaval serves you well, although it feels temporarily uncomfortable.

Dare to shine a light onto the path you have always yearned to travel from the inside out, and as you see the light shining on glimmering gems that are new opportunities, experiences, friendships, and inner freedom from emotional suffering and tyranny, you will be glad for the temporary upheaval. You will know that it was the only way all you truly desire could replace what you knew deep inside needed to be transformed.

You will very soon feel inner peace if you have been feeling internal chaos. Remind yourself that when the old falls away, including how you are viewing yourself, if your ego feels temporarily bruised, know that this is creating room for greater growth that far exceeds where you are now. Move in the direction that your heart is pulling you towards. You path ahead is a glorious, sublime, exciting and blissful experience, because it is actually the real you that you are now growing into.

You are loved eternally. Be Well and Trust. All is in Divine order.
