How do you find your life mission?

How do you find your life mission?
More and more people are concerned with awareness, meaningful living, and personal development. If you work on this, you are guaranteed to get to a point where you ask yourself deep questions. Questions like ‘what is my life purpose?’ and ‘what makes me really happy?’ can aim to find true happiness. And that is something we all want and especially can have from our essence.

Living without purpose means that you don’t get results. Doing your thing aimlessly, living on autopilot and not getting satisfaction from what you do, can lead to all kinds of complaints on a physical, mental and emotional level. Giving meaning to your life and having a mission, from your deepest being, is therefore something that takes your health and happiness to a higher level. With which you can live your life the way you want, from your heart and soul. But how do you find your own soul mission? The following steps will get you a long way.

The ego and the self

In order to get answers to the big questions of life, it is important that you understand, accept and love yourself. The distinction between the ego and the self is essential. Your ego is in fact your exterior: how you behave based on all kinds of influences and beliefs so that you are who you think you want to be.

Meeting the wishes and demands of the outside world, by putting on a mask and putting your own individual interests first. In this way, you pretend to be different than you actually are. And who that is, that is the Self. This inner voice teaches you to be who you are from your essence: naturally loving, free of judgment, and without conditions. If you start walking your life path and thereby develop your awareness further and further, your Self gains the upper hand and the ego becomes subordinate.

Accept, let go and embrace

How do you find your life mission?

On the road to finding your soul mission, being judgment-free and unconditional love are the basic principles. Accept that you are who you are, with all your good and bad sides. By letting go of your beliefs, you can achieve this. You don’t have to change, you just need to love yourself. Inadequate ideas, low self-esteem, fears, and low self-confidence are anything but good for your health and happiness and they get in the way of finding your answers. In fact, it is your ego speaking there and judging you as a person.

Live in the now

In order to find your soul mission, it is also vital that you realize that the past is over, that the future is unpredictable and that you are living now. So NOW you can make it. Everything you have experienced in your past has largely determined how you live now. Try to learn from your experiences and realize that you have those experiences and that you are not them. Because of what you have, you can let go. So are your worries about what might happen. Worrying doesn’t solve anything; in fact, it can leave you depressed, lethargic, and exhausted. If you learn to live in the here and now, you will feel that true happiness is there.

Love yourself

To love yourself is to embrace yourself, in all that you are. And when you love yourself, it’s a lot easier to take care of yourself. Because if you listen to your inner voice, you will know what you need to be healthy and happy. The further you progress in your consciousness development, the more you will discover about yourself. You will learn to properly nurture yourself on every holistic level. Healthy food, sufficient exercise and sufficient rest, time for yourself, taking in information, getting satisfaction from your work and social contacts are all examples of this diet. And with that you come closer and closer to your essence, your spirituality.

Your meaning

This brings us to the next step: nurturing your spiritual desires and needs. This is where the larger themes and life questions arise. First, you meet the primary needs of life such as food, drink, and a roof over your head, then you find safety, social contacts, recognition and appreciation and you arrive at self-realization: awareness of who you are.

And above that arise the questions that we mentioned at the beginning of this article: what is your mission on this earth? The only one who can answer that is you. You can start by asking yourself the following questions, writing down the answers or making a mood board. Read your answers, adjust them, look at your mood board and fill in what comes to mind:

  • What do I get positive energy from?
  • What inspires me?
  • What are my deepest wishes and dreams?
  • What are my strong, weak, good and less good sides?
  • Which one wants to develop the strongest?
  • What am I really good at?
  • What makes me happy?
  • What things would I do if I only had a short time to live?

Connecting with your essence and listening to your inner voice

Listening to your inner voice will help you find answers and ultimately find your soul mission. The statement ‘follow your heart, because it always beats’ may sound cliché, but it is very close to the truth. To listen to your heart, the connection with yourself is essential. There are countless ways to connect with your essence: meditation, visualization and yoga are very good examples.

You sink into your body, to feel what is there. You connect with your feelings in the silence of yourself. If you can make that connection, you will be able to follow your intuition more easily and stay deeper and deeper with your essence. With who you really are!

What do you need to find fulfillment?

How do you find your life mission?

As said, the only one who can answer your question about your soul mission is yourself. If you really want to live from your heart, you become more and more aware of everything that is really valuable to you.

You will find what you need to give meaning and fulfillment by listening to your inner voice. So take time for yourself. Find the silence and let your body, mind, and feeling tell you what you need to be healthy and happy. Ask yourself the questions from the list above again and again. And do what feels right for you: if you act out of trust and love, what is the value of judgment then?
