How to find your life purpose

Longing to Find Purpose in Life: “What is my place in the world?”

“I’m struggling with purpose”

“Hi Maria,

Since experiencing a brief ‘accidental spiritual awakening’ 10 years ago, I have struggled with ‘purpose’.

During the awakening which lasted for 3 months, my mind was still and my purpose was ‘being’.

When this brief awakening finished my mind was left trying to get back to that place where it was ok that my purpose was simply being.

My mind is now constantly swinging between trying to just ‘be’ (which I mostly find in nature and meditation) and having a purpose in my day to day life.

I feel so different to other people and struggle with friendships etc as it seems the main world is driven by setting and focusing on goals, achieving them and to have a a purpose other than ‘being’.

This leaves me feeling very isolated and alone on this journey; I have read some of your articles on the blessings of being alone on the spiritual journey which have helped.

I long to find my place in the world and to live what God intends for me.

Any tips on how to do this or how to let go and make peace with what is would be greatly appreciated.

Any tips on day to day living whilst waking up would be great too.”

Our Purpose in Life is..

To not be so hung up on One Big Life Purpose,

But to understand that everything we do on a moment to moment basis following our intuition and Divine guidance, is what our current ‘purpose’ is, and from there, the bigger picture unfolds.

Our actions every day adds up, they create something, and what that creation will be depends on where we put our focus.

So focus on what makes you happy, follow your joy, your curiosity and interests.

Our “life purpose” can change many times in our lifetime, we can live many different lives in one life, we can change career and work paths, find new interests and things that ignites our soul,

We are always evolving and becoming more of who we are, so our purpose unfolds moment to moment and our ‘job’ is to follow that which feels most expansive,

What you feel driven or inspired to act upon in this very moment.

Look to your passions; What seems to be calling on you?

In some phases it’s all about doing inner work, and then from that inner work, our outer work evolves, or unfolds.

What’s in front of you to deal with, address, dive into, enjoy, learn, pour your heart and soul into, ..

That’s your purpose, Right Now.

How do you desire to serve?

What would be fun, exciting, fulfilling, interesting, soul-rewarding, meaningful..?

Start anywhere and do That, and from those small steps you take, the bigger picture unfolds.

Every moment is significant in itself and adds to the whole picture of your life,

So all we really ever have to do is to do what we feel inspired to do – today, right now, and then the next steps will always unfold from there.

Life is about being present right here and now, doing whatever that feels most obvious or fun or meaningful, as life is meaningless until we give it meaning,

― So what would be meaningful for you to do? Do that.

What is your area of interest? Where is your passion?

What upsets you in the world? What change would you like to see?

What are the things you think should be different?

Do you ever think “I wish someone could fix this problem”, or “someone should do something about that!”,

Well, why can’t that be you? That could become your purpose.

What do you care deeply about? What breaks your heart to see in the world?

What are you excited about? What comes naturally for you, almost effortlessly? What would be FUN?

Do those things.

Be a change-maker, a way-maker, a builder of something new, a creator, a trailblazer, a powerful life-liver!

Why not?

If you feel resistance or self-doubt, then make it your purpose to remove the internal barriers that are in the way for you to live a life that would feel meaningful for you.

Your life purpose is to be yourself as fully as you can, and always discovering more of who you are,

To follow your excitement, to explore, and to do things that makes you happy or that gives you a sense of meaning,

To be all that you can be, and to use and develop your unique skills, gifts and talents,

And to remember that you are free to choose whatever path you want, so use your free will wisely and make choices that aligns with your inner truth and Soul.

Maria is beyond amazing

And with only that one session and the healing she carried out, I’ve been without grudges, feelings of being hurt or anything on those lines. This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless. Maria is beyond amazing. Had I not experienced it myself, I would probably not believe it. I recommend anyone who is trying hard to be truly free and really start walking down the path of self fulfillment and happiness to book a session with her.

 I am so glad that I reached out to you

Maria, you are truly godsend. I cannot describe how happy I am. I have no idea what you did and how you did, but I am truly grateful to you. My words in this email cannot thank you enough. Today is the first day that I woke up feeling as if I am ready to take on the world. I am so glad that I reached out to you. I am truly grateful to you. I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family!

I’ve never had a conversation like that before

I just wanted to say thank you so much again for our session yesterday, I’ve never had a conversation like that before and it was truly amazing. I could feel weight lifted as we were talking and for the first time my mind did not try to make sense of things, it was all truly felt in the heart space.

I cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session

I don’t really know where to start. I find myself at a loss for words. All I can say to you is Thank You. This was unlike any healing session that I have ever been in and I say that from the bottom of my skeptical, over analytical heart who had literally tried everything one could think of. I cannot recommend you enough to other people, you are a gift. I also cannot believe what you were able to achieve in one session, to me it is groundbreaking. Thank you!!!

I have never felt more aligned to my true self

Maria’s awareness of energies and the conditions of the mind are truly impressive. She knows exactly what’s going on. She is so attuned to other peoples’ energy that she just knows where you’re at. After working with her I have never felt more alive and aligned to my true self.

Her unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough

Maria’s intuitive abilities have been instrumental to the personal growth I’ve experienced as a result of working together. I’ve had HUGE shifts in my beliefs. Her undivided attention, presence and unique ability to read your state helped me to breakthrough and release old patterns and replace them with new self-empowering practices that have truly shifted my life. I would highly recommend Maria to anyone. I am forever changed and forever grateful!

Joanna, USA

Profound shift

I can’t put into words how much you have helped me. I couldn’t have kept it all together had I not experienced a PROFOUND shift during and after my session with you.

I was taken over by a peacefulness

After our session, something happened within me that I cannot explain nor would it even make sense to anyone. There was a part of me that felt my being been taken over by a real peacefulness that I’ve never encountered before. Sounds odd but it’s the truth.

The feeling of peace and freedom is priceless

With only that one session and the healing she carried out, I’ve been without grudges, feelings of being hurt or anything on those lines. This feeling of peace and freedom is priceless. Maria is beyond amazing. Had I not experienced it myself, I would probably not believe it.

Working with Maria has been more transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried

I highly recommend Maria! I don’t even recognize the person who started working with her a few months ago. Maria clearly sees what is blocking, stopping or limiting you. Working with her has been more transformational than any other thing that I’ve tried. There have been profound shifts in the way I see myself and the world, so many shifts in my energy and life. I find myself so much lighter and freer. Thank you Maria!

Britt, Marbella, Spain

It was more than I could ever hoped for or expected

My experience with Maria was more than I could ever hoped for or expected. I had such a positive experience working with her. I feel like a huge weight have been lifted and I have so much more perspective on what I have been struggling with. She cleared up my energy and I feel more myself, more at peace and all around better mentally and emotionally since my sessions with her.

Miriam, Espoo, Finland

A calm came over me

I could feel the tension leaving my body and a calm came over me by just being in her presence. Everything flows so naturally with her and my life is more beautiful and I feel at peace knowing I have her by my side. I feel blessed to have her in my life.

Cecilia, Stockholm, Sweden

My life has changed dramatically

Since plugging in to your words of wisdom my life has changed dramatically. You pointed me in the right direction and that gave me courage to continue moving through whatever process I may find myself in and the ability to take refuge in the truth within me.

I needed help in getting my life back

From the first sentence you spoke directly related to what I was going through, I felt so uplifted and light. It still blows me away when I think about it now! Never once did I feel judged, or uncomfortable in any way. I feel like this heavy weight of negativity has fallen away from me and I couldn’t get those awful feelings back if I tried. I can’t stress enough what a gift it is to be able to work with somebody like Maria. Talk about amazing grace!

The whole session felt as if it was operating on another level

If you can trust one thing in your life right now, trust Maria. You can trust her with your heart and soul. It’s hard to explain, the whole session felt as if it was operating on another level. I’ve never had that kind of experience before. It just felt so much bigger than I anticipated. I can tell you with absolute honesty and conviction that having a session with Maria is life-changing!

You have really made a difference in how my mind works

I don’t know if I make sense, but all I can say is that I feel blissful. And I can’t thank you enough for that. I don’t know exactly how you managed this, but you have really made a difference in how my mind works.

I can’t put into words how much you have helped me. I couldn’t have kept it all together had I not experienced a PROFOUND shift during and after my session with you.

Maria is leading people to a new way of being

Maria is changing the world by her presence. She’s leading people to a new way of being. She’s rare because she’s able to see where you are at in your journey and can show you the way forward. I feel so incredibly grateful that she has been a companion during this time of change. If you feel drawn to connect with Maria I encourage you to move forward with confidence.

I had a complete turnaround to my situation

The distance healing was amazing. I had a complete turnaround to my situation so many thanks for helping me transform something I had lost hope about. It’s a miracle and the outcome could not have turned out better! If you want to see a real shift not just psychological but spiritual shift, then Maria is the lady to see. I am so glad I found you!

I couldn’t be more grateful to have Maria in my life. Her guidance and energy is profound!

One of the best investments I ever made in myself

Working with Maria was one of the best investments I ever made in myself. I’ve seen immediate shifts in my energy as well as learned to work with my own energy and mind. It has been one of the single most transformational experiences of my life. Can’t recommend her enough!

– Chris, USA

You are truly a gift to us all!

I can’t even begin to express how much I have gained internally after my session with you. You have been an instrument of peace in my life. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

– Owen, USA

Connecting with you is magical

Maria THANK YOU. Sometimes just by connecting with you even briefly gives me instant clarity, it’s really magical, thank you so much. I trust your guidance so much, I’m just so grateful!

Blown away at what I’m attracting!

I finally know my worth. I feel so different now, I feel lighter, happier and more self confident and it’s easy to let go of people and situations that don’t serve me. I treasure the time I spend talking with Maria and look forward to my sessions with her. There has been big changes in my life, synchronicities showing up like magic and I’m constantly blown away at the business and opportunities that I’m attracting. My life has radically changed for the better after I met Maria.

    Loved this one Maria 🙌 1000%!!
    Was journaling about this topic today myself! Funny that 😄 but I realised we can get so fixated on the “bigger picture”, sometimes due to a lack of self worth and looking to find ourselves in purpose (just speaking from my personal experience, that’s not the case for everyone of course), that we discard the present moment, which is all we ever have. And even if we do reach that big goal, it’ll pass anyway 🙂

  2. Thank you Val, glad to hear you liked it 😊

    Yes, the bigger picture is something that unfolds,

    I mean, sure, you can get a vision, or image, of how things will look further down the line (regarding whatever path you choose, whether it’s a life-affirming path or not), or in what direction things will go, but there’s always a huge surprise factor involved when you go with the energy of your own life’s flow and where you’re at times completely in the Unknown, only knowing This Exact Moment, and that’s it.

    Trusting the Unknown (where the real magic of life happens!) and letting go of the ego’s need to know everything gives the Universe room to give us something we could never had predicted or ‘created’ ourselves.

    But at the same time, we’re all different, so some of us can get the bigger picture (or ‘knowing’ where things will go) early on in life, will some of us are ‘late bloomers’ and find our path later in life.

    It’s all very individual, but having goals, dreams, etc is also very important as they give us a sense of direction and forward movement, and where we can experience progress, which is wonderful (so you should definitely visualize and imagine great things for yourself).

    But the key is always to stay centered in the Here and Now, while still have a focus on things to come (where dreams and visions for our life and future are realized and manifested).
