"Everyone has been made
for some particular work
and the desire for that work
has been put in every heart." ~Rumi



You have unique gifts to share with the world, your own special magic or medicine or music, that is all your own...and when you share these gifts with others, they will be deeply served, and you will be deeply fulfilled by your service.

If you aren't living your life in this way, you may sometimes feel dissatisfied. Like life is happening to you, rather than feeling like you are the artistic and powerful creator of your own life.

Making your own special contribution just feels good. There is a great joy that comes from living a life in alignment with what you know, in your bones, to be your own personal purpose, your calling. And you probably won't ever be truly satisfied until you do.

Sadly, most people don't ever come close to even HEARING their own calling or getting clear on what their soul purpose IS, let alone fully living it and sharing their unique gifts with the world. 

Why is that?

Because most of us, most of the time, are (unconsciously) being motivated, primarily, by fear. A fear that we are not even really aware of, but that, nonetheless, leads us around by the nose. 

You may have thought that the biggest block to living your life's purpose was just figuring out what it is, but we don't think that's it. From our experience, both personally and in working with many others, we believe there is a part of you that ALREADY KNOWS all about your purpose, and is just waiting for you to be ready for it.

So what prevents you from having access to that wisdom, that intuition, that knowing about the true purpose of your life?

The fear. The fear we already mentioned. The old pain, and the old protective strategies you developed to try to prevent or cope with that pain, DON'T WANT YOU to be in touch with your purpose. They are afraid that you knowing your purpose could lead to....that's right... MORE PAIN!

And we won't lie, living your life's purpose may involve some pain along the way, but here are two things about that:

1)  KNOWING your purpose doesn't obligate you to LIVE it anymore than you WANT to, and

2)  Sure, living your purpose may involve some pain, BUT SO DOES LIVING WITHOUT IT! 

Would you rather have the pain of remaining stuck in the same ol' same ol' of knowing you are wasting your life, or the growth pains required to realize your power and potential and share your precious gifts with the world?!  Come join us! 

This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.
— George Bernard Shaw
