Ever wonder what your purpose is here on Earth. This life you have?
Have you ‘Found’ yourself yet?
This article by Robin Emmerich answers those questions and more.
Have you ever sat and wondered, “What is my purpose? How can I find it?”
This is a question that I asked myself before starting my transformational journey fifteen years ago and hear so often from my clients. Joseph Campbell calls the path of transformation the hero’s journey. When we step fully into the journey, we are often required to face the shadow of the victim within and become the victor. The light of the victim is the victor.
“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” – Joseph Campbell
I recently helped a friend navigate the path of the hero’s journey from the mind into her heart, she discovered that her mind and heart were on two different pages. Her mind said “I want to leave my current company and start my own company, but I don’t know how to be successful. Taking time to journey into her heart opened the voice within her that said, “I want to do something that makes a difference in the world.”
When she dropped into her heart, a miracle took place. All of a sudden, she went from fear and self-doubt, to love and truth. She held a deep desire to help people and began to recall how she had spent the last ten years in her company learning all of the skills needed to start her own company. She had an idea to become an independent consultant and bring on her current company as her first client. The following week when we met, she could barely contain herself, “I talked with my boss. He is fully supportive of my business model and I’ll be transitioning from employee to independent consultant within four weeks!” She shared how she will have the time now to take on the projects that are most fulfilling and can contribute to other organizations close to her heart.
