guiding you through grief, loss, and new life
Secret Mission

Secret Mission

Welcome to 2012! May you enjoy more life, more love, and more good things!

It often takes a while to get your bearings and fully land in the New Year. Winter gives you this time to pause and reflect and discover what foundation you are building upon to manifest your best year ever. The key is returning to the core of who you are.

The photo here shows one of my altars expressing my not-so-secret mission, to expand my instinct to nurture and joyfully serve more people. My path is to offer love with wisdom  through healing, creativity, and relationship.

What is your not-so-secret mission?

Remembering your mission, you might experience something like warmth, light, joy, peace, and an unstoppable smile just like my glamorous buddha friend.

Not to worry if you don’t know your purpose. You probably know more than you think you do.

What brings you alive, what brings you joy and does no harm are clues to your mission. Using that joy as your compass allows you to be true to yourself and find satisfaction in your life. Consider this:

  • Where in your life do you use your gifts and talents and feel good about them?
  • Which relationships make you feel happy and whole and uplifted?
  • Where can you deepen or expand sharing your gifts and talents?
  • Where can you deepen and expand sharing who you are with others?

Gratitude for being the one and only you invites more chances to embody and express that. The world needs you, awake, alive and living out your purpose.  Let me know how it goes with this inquiry.

Blessings, Carol
