EP 13: The #Sparked Life – Divine Spark Moments When Your Spark Is Dim

New E[pisode of The #Sparked Life Podcast
Connect wi!th your spark, take inspired action, live YOUR Sparked Life

Hello Purpose Peep!

Your spark is at the center of living your sparked life. Living from your spark is the secret to living the sparked life, no matter what.

No matter what includes circumstances that do not feel “spark like.” No matter what includes the challenges of life. But if we reflect on the words of the intro, “crashing through the dark alright, we all got the spark, we all got the spark tonight.” Crashing through dark moments is a part of the process for our spark. Without dark or dim moments, how would we see the spark or appreciate how it operates in our lives?

In this episode of The #Sparked Life Podcast, we unpack the nature of our Divine Spark:

  • Divine Spark as a purpose partner,
  • Divine Spark as a believer, and
  • Divine Spark as a refresher!

We have homework that helps us to close out this year or decade in gratitude and awareness of our spark moments with an affirmation to hold us together in this awareness until we meet again.

Listen here!

XOXO,

Spark Notes: The Spark of Purpose – What makes you come alive?

Introducing Spark Notes, notes to spark conversation within ourselves and with others.  Join the purpose conversation.

The Spark Lens of Purpose

cross pollination of purpose

As a card-carrying member of the Rah-Rah Club of Motivation, being sparked really jazzes me!  And yet sparked moments are more than snapshots of clarity, an aha or a time when we connect with our code of genius–if we recognize and leverage them.

What sparks you?

When you connect with a core truth it literally sparks you.  Have you ever had an inspired thought that when it landed, you exclaimed, “that’s it” and that’s it turned into a flood a flow of creative ideas?  Yes? You were sparked.

When we explore purpose through the lens of spark, spark is a verb that means ignite. And when we spark, we emit sparks that ignite others.  Remember from the Lens of Oxygen, purpose produces.

If spark is a verb, then it is in action.  As you consume your purpose diet of knowledge and practice, you will be sparked.  When you are actively engaged in purpose activities and service, you will be sparked.   When you are in close proximity to something vital to your purpose, you will be sparked. What is important about sparks is that they always lead to more.

Previously, we discussed the star formation as it relates to purpose.  The star whose origin was dust, took millions of years to spark so that we can see its brilliance.  But the story of the star did not end at brilliance! The star could provide direction or is part of a system or cluster of stars that tells a bigger story.  This is how purpose unfolds.  This is how your sparked experiences unfold.

In my book Divine Spark, I discuss spark moments leveraging the story of Mary and Elizabeth from the Holy Bible. The purposes that Mary and Elizabeth would bring into the world were so great that when they came in close proximity to one another without knowing of their miraculous pregnancies, they sparked and caused the babies in their wombs to leap!

Another aspect of sparked relationships comes from one of my favorite scriptures, Proverbs 27:17, “Just like iron forms iron, man forms man.”  Iron sharpens iron and causes sparks and friction when it happens.

Some spark relationships cause friction and the purpose of the friction is to spark something anew that sharpens the insight, knowledge and understanding in one another.

What makes you come alive?

Have you ever felt that you were living but you were not alive? Have you noticed people around you that are so busy with life and are in movement and yet when you look into their eyes, they are dull? Perhaps I recognize it because I’ve lived through this version of existing.  My life began to change when I declared, “enough with this existing, there has to be more.”  Quickly followed by some sincere asks and quieting to really hear and receive responses.

What are your life defibrillators?

Note what it feels like in your body when you are sparked.  My eyes widen.  My pulse races.  I actually feel a shock in my heart space.  This experience made me realize this aspect of purpose is like a life defibrillator.

Defibrillators shock the heart back into its rhythm.  Sometimes life and our responses to life events cause our hearts to function but not optimally.  Metaphorically, we can have a heart dis ease that forms from disagreeing with an inauthentic aspect of our life.  Purpose sparks and shocks our heart to begin to beat again with our natural rhythm.  That rhythm becomes our authenticity litmus test.

Being sparked may be exciting or it may be disruptive depending on what is rubbing against our life to cause us to spark.  Trust that being sparked is for you, whether it is easily understood or requires some sincere asks and contemplation for it to begin to unfold with meaning you can respond to.

Happy New Year!  Welcome 2018!

Intend Purpose!  Start with your intention to have purpose experiences in 2018.

When I completed my Unlock! Me Review, it became wonderfully apparent that what we intend is powerful.  I know this and yet I had a deeper experience of this just watching how my year unfolded.  When my intentions and words, what I spoke, were in alignment, the miraculous occurred!

Join me in intending purpose without an expectation of what it will look like. Just that you, me and all the Purpose Peeps (everyone) continues the path to purpose into 2018. Period. That is enough.

One of our Purpose Peeps asked how to get started, how to align with purpose.  My response is to intend purpose.  Expect purpose. Expect to have your personal experience with purpose. Expect to have purpose continue to unfold in your life this year. Expect for your experience to be different because you are not the same as this time last year. Expect to be aligned with resources to build in your awareness and experiences.  Then, breathe, watch and respond with inspired action.

To have your experience with the Unlock! Me Review click here.  It is my gift to you to extract the last 12 months and to be clear about what you will take with you to leverage in 2018.

Happy 2018!

Spark Notes: Purpose Unfolds

Last week we were discussing the star formation and integrating the lessons of each phase of formation.  What is interesting is that any of us could identify with the brilliance of the star and connect with the brilliance unfolding our lives.  Brilliance is a part of the story of the “star,” and yet the story does not end with brilliance.  What if the purpose of the star is to shine brightly to provide direction?

When reflecting about the beautiful story of Jesus during this holiday season, I was struck by one of the silent characters in the story, The Star of Bethlehem.  From our study last week, we know that the formation of a star may take millions of years or just a declaration, “let there be a star.” The point is that the star undertook a unique journey with kairos (perfect) timing  and an appointment to shine brightly and provide direction.

Purpose unfolds like a beautiful flower. 

There is a process for the flower to grow and blossom and fulfill its purpose.  Like the rose, there are layers of unfolding and blooming–all beautiful.  Understanding the nature of purpose allows a whimsical relationship with purpose that continually surprises and amazes. The Key of Surrender allows us to surrender deeper and deeper to a process that we can not predict or out think.

Consider purpose a great story, your story, that builds over time.  One of the things that makes a great story is that we can not predict where the author is going in the story.  We just agree to journey with it.  Imagine purpose taking you by the hand and gently saying, “let’s journey together.”

As we embark on 2018, let’s set the intention to be present to purpose unfolding in our lives.  Let’s agree to journey with purpose trusting that the author of purpose has a compelling story to tell with us and through us.  Like the star that is brilliant and directional, let us settle for nothing less than our fully realized purpose!

Happy 2018!
