Heart based approach to the big questions of life direction

Back in 2003 an Adelaide Esoteric Astrologer (and much more besides) by the name of Elia Laurikainen suggested that I could ask myself the following questions. They became a way to refocus my own work and soul direction at the time. I have needed to revisit these questions over the years and find myself using them again now as a way to reframe and navigate how to live my passions and share them with others in a different way .

Here they are:

  •            What is my soul trying to get through?
  •            What is it that the world needs or what can I give to the world?
  •             What in the world calls to my heart?
  •             What do you feel moved to help in, give or serve
  •             What is my gift to the world?

Exploring these answers  in a journal or using a vision board can be wonderfully illuminating and you can add the following questions to further explore your gifts

Ask yourself “What is my gift to the world?”

  1. Write down all the things that have lifted you up or given you inspiration, filled you with passion.
  2. Write down the things that have come easily to you, those things you do with ease – they may not be conventional skills, it may be a state of being.  Mine for example includes reading and sensing energy; empathy; love of learning, sharing and synthesizing knowledge, systems thinking.
  3. What are the recurring patterns in your passions or interests
  4. Ask yourself how can these be of service to others

There is a lovely quote by Mother Theresa that goes

“It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. It is not how much we give, but how much love is put in the giving.”

Many people are wanting to live more authentically and feel that what they do or how they live, is more aligned with their own hearts passions as well as being of benefit to the wider community or the planet.  I like my intuitive processes to have a practical expression and so I love activities like this.  You can also use automatic writing and see what you come up with.
