One of the most frequently asked questions by those on the path of awakening is: What is my purpose in life?
I know only too well how frustrating it is to have this question burning unanswered within.
For the Empath it is doubly frustrating because they have this incredible gift and most do not know what it is for or what they are supposed to do with it.
I have often been asked questions such as: ‘how can I be of service to others?’ or ‘I want to help others but how should I do it?’
It is an inbred trait for Empaths to want to help others, especially if they are suffering. However, many have tried and failed when attempting to help others help themselves. It is incredibly soul-destroying to see another suffering and not be able to help.
On my journey, I have come to understand that not all suffering is bad.
It is through suffering humans evolve, awaken and start looking for a new and better path in life. Suffering can also be an important rite of passage into spiritual consciousness.
Many feel like they are suffering when they don’t know their purpose in life.
In order to serve their life purpose, many Empaths believe they should be working directly with others. However, this isn’t always an option because of the getting ‘peopled’ factor.
The truth is, Empaths do not have to work ‘directly’ with others to be of service. They already do more for others than most will ever know.
For one thing they transmute negative energy, mostly without even realising. And by taking on, and transmuting, these energies they are being of huge service to the world.
Also, Empaths are great listeners! Simply listening to another is healing for the one being heard (with the exception of energy vampires). People rarely listen. Most are too busy thinking about their own story, or what they want to say next. Empaths do listen and they hear on many different levels. They also care.
There are many other ways Empaths help without realising. So do not worry too much if you feel you are not helping others enough. Believe me, you are!
If you work on making yourself a better person you are making the world a better place, and that in itself is a priceless gift.
So to summarize, the best way to find your purpose is by serving yourself (nurture mind, body and spirit), be true to yourself and simply follow your true passions and interests… the rest will follow.
If you do what you love and love what you do, you will find happiness… Happiness is the key to knowing your purpose!
