Why are we here?

That’s the age-old question, isn’t it? Why are we here? What is our life mission? What is our soul’s purpose? In a few simple words, it’s to learn and progress. It’s to advance your soul to new levels. You are a soul in a human body. You are made primarily of energy and when you discard this human body your consciousness and soul will live on and more than likely incarnate again to master more lessons. I realize some people don’t believe in reincarnation and that is ok. I personally don’t believe that you only live one life and that’s what you’re judged on because let’s face it, we have all committed some grave blunder in this one life. According to reincarnation, every time you incarnate you choose the situation, the lessons, and even the people you want to incarnate with. This is all to learn to overcome hurdles with love and compassion. Certain events are fated to happen – your response to them will determine whether you advance or not. Certain people will come into your life – some will be lessons and some will be blessings.

In my spiritual search, reincarnation is what resonated most with me because it made sense. I don’t believe that this life is random.  There is an order to every event that happens in your personal life, in the life of the people around you, and in the world at large. If you are paying attention right now, you have probably realized that the same events that are being played out in the US are also happening around the world in other countries in varying degrees. There’s obviously and huge lesson the world needs to learn and is about to learn right now. I can also assure you that you personally, or us globally, will not advance or learn anything unless we respond with love and compassion. It’s time to shed the fear energy and express the love energy that we all have inside of us. You may not be able to control events around you but you can control how you respond to them. Let’s remember to respond in love and help each other, always.soul-purposeIf you would like to learn more about your soul’s purpose I would like to recommend “Discovering Your Soul Mission” by Linda Brady and Evan St. Lifer. This book has many challenging exercises to help you understand yourself, your life, and what it all means. Another book that has really helped me is “Astrology for the Soul” by Jan Spiller. In this book, you will learn which lessons you came here to master. Interestingly enough, I first read this book in my 20’s and then re-read it in my 40’s and I noticed that I had learned a lot of the lessons I was supposed to! If you have an open mind and an open heart you can learn much about yourself, your soul, the world around you, and the purpose of it all. My life is much more bearable and has much more meaning because I’m looking at it from a soul’s perspective instead of a human perspective. I wish for you the same enlightenment.
