Honoring Your Life's Purpose

We all have a specific life's purpose. The presence and experience of others in your life helps you grow in consciousness, creating a chain-like reaction that has a profound effect on the collective awareness on the planet.

It is the ultimate goal for all living things to fully express our gifts and talents, to exalt and uplift the spirit of those around you by being and expressing the beautiful gift you are. If you are like most and are still trying to find your life's purpose, there are vital spiritual questions to ask yourself:

*What is the unique gift held within me?
*What is my talent and soul's purpose?
*How can my purpose serve others?

Allow your true, innate talent to blossom and put it at the service of others. By accepting your gift, you honor yourself and the nature of life itself. By living each day with the goal of being who you really are, you not only awaken the souls of others, but also allow them to express themselves with confidence and trust in their infinite possibilities.
But identifying and keeping in touch with your life's purpose can be a challenge. Below you will learn how to keep in touch with your essence and its message. It is vital to practice these kinds of spiritual exercises, but easy to lose touch with our spiritual goals. As important as it is to your body to exercise, it is equally important to give yourself a regular spiritual workout. Commit to practicing these exercises often and be true to yourself and your essence.

~Your Spiritual Workout~
Sit in front of your altar or in a quiet place where you feel very comfortable and at peace. Close your eyes, stay silent and relax. Then choose the appropriate aromatic blend below and apply it on the crown chakra (fontanelle), third eye (between the eyebrows), and the solar plexus. Also apply the blend every morning on the solar plexus, crown chakra and third eye. Pour a few drops into the palm of your hands and breathe it in deeply.

Focus your attention by following the steps below:
*Be still and the here and now.
*Ground your mind by visualizing yourself "sitting" in your head.
*Pay very close attention to the essence which animates your body and spirit
*Open and awaken your heart. How does it feel?
*Ask yourself what your gift is, and stay still.
*Keep a journal to write down the different images or messages you envision while using the blend.

Everyday you should ask yourself what your talent is and how it can help others. Express it without fears and wonder. This is what will bring you the most joy.

To prepare the following blends, add the essential oils to a 10-ml bottle and fill with organic vegetable oil.
