I’m thrilled you’re here. I think of you as a friend, whether we’ve met yet or not. I have loved recording these solo episodes over the past year. I hope they add value, meaning, and impact in your life and remind you that you are definitely not alone in overcoming inner struggles and challenges on the journey of being your You-est You. If you’re listening to this episode, my hunch is that you might be curious to learn more about how to find your purpose. In this solo episode, I chose to tap into faith and divine guidance by picking three You-est You declaration cards. I hope this conversation resonates at the deepest level.


The Power of Joy

The first card I pulled was Joy. Joy is incredibly undervalued. The vibration and energy of joy is similar to that of love, compassion, and peace. When you tap into joy, you connect to your spirit, that part of you that is in the flow and has the most positive energy connection. It’s also easy to manifest when you are vibrating at joy. While most adults put it low on the priority list, joy is the elixir to feeling better and more aligned to the divine. For manifestation, joy needs to be prioritized; it needs to be put back at the top of your list. I know this is an area I’m working on, and I invite you to see how you can make more time for joy and happiness this holiday season and in the new year. If you are at a loss for what brings you joy, look to see what made you feel alive, lit up, and empowered when you were little, or think of a most recent situation when you lost all sense of time because you were so engaged in what you were doing, seeing or experiencing. These can lead us to the clues of what brings us joy. Another cousin to joy is gratitude. If you’re really struggling with what you’re finding joyful, look to see what you appreciate and naturally feel grateful for. Eventually, hanging in the land of gratitude will bring you to the land of joy.


The Why of Your Purpose

The second card I pulled was Purpose, and to me, the best way to find your purpose, which doesn’t have to be one thing, especially for you multi-passionate and purposeful lightworkers and entrepreneurs, is to go to your WHY. Ask yourself first about what you feel passionate about and what you would get up in the middle of the night and do for free. That’s a great indication of where your purpose will be. Then ask yourself, why is this topic or idea so important to you. Reflect, journal, and keep asking yourself “why,” and follow up with “is there anything else” until there is nothing left to write. You can do this for all areas of your life; career, family, health, spiritual, and relationships. Ask yourself the deeper life coach questions like, “What feels important to me right now with my health, time with my family, my career, connecting to spirit, self-care and making time for friends, and why?” I’d love to hear what you come up with and would invite you to take note of your why and create why purpose statements that you can review daily. You might write them out, record yourself saying them and listen to them each day, or even create cards or a vision board with your purpose statements. You are allowed and encouraged to have more than one purpose. For example, your purpose might be to be a loving partner who communicates openly, directly, and kindly with your spouse, partner, or significant other. You might also decide that communication of all kinds is your purpose in your career, which could look like speaking up about inequality of pay for women, or sexism, or whatever topic you feel on fire about. There is no right or wrong way to do this; the only incorrect way is not to do it at all.


The Abundance Equation

The third card I chose was Abundance. I love these three cards because when you put them in this order; Joy, Purpose, and Abundance, you get an equation that I find to be spot on. The abundance manifestation equation is: Joy + Purpose = Abundance. What was serendipitous to me was that I wrote about this in my book, Get a Ph.D. in YOU, specifically in chapter 11, Purpose and Passion, and talked about this very equation. When you focus first on connecting to your higher self, your heart, and your joy, you naturally start to focus on ways to be of service and share your purpose, which ultimately leads to living in abundance. An abundance of all kinds, including opportunities, meeting great people, wealth, health, and ways to add greater value. 


Your Purpose is Calling

I hope this episode was helpful to you, my friend, and I would love to hear what you come up with when you reflect on the deeper questions about your why, passion and purpose. I believe we all have a deep yearning to add value, be of service, and spread joy, and that ultimately the greatest gift is the freedom to be self-expressed and to feel connected to your most authentic self, your You-est You. 


Final Thoughts

As you wrap up 2021, I invite you to take these 3 steps of finding your purpose into consideration. To look back over the past year and search out where you felt joy in your life. It doesn’t have to be grandiose moments in time, but it can be small moments that filled your heart with great joy in a quiet way. Take those moments and see how you can replicate those for finding your purpose in 2022. Through finding your purpose, and it doesn’t have to be career-related, you will open the doorway to living in abundance—an abundance of love, friendship, opportunities, and, yes, perhaps financial wealth.
