The Promises Lens of Purpose

cross pollination of purpose

A promise is an assurance.  One can count on a promise.  When considering our purpose, the journey to connect with our purpose and the courage to take action and live out our purpose; knowing assurances is an anchor.

Why Faith Tradition?

My grandfather was a wise man who almost lived to be 100.  He taught us, “if you want to know how something works, go to its creator.” In addition he would say, “if you want the best understanding, go to the source.”

My faith tradition is at the core of who I am.  As a resultant, one who is focused on fully realized purpose, I agree with my grandfather and I go to my Source.

Knowing that I was created with a specific plan in mind lends sacredness to my path to purpose journey.  This sacredness allows me to trust, be in surrender, and to journey without having a map because I know one exists for me to tap into.

As a Conscious Follower of Jesus Christ, there are many biblical promises about purpose, here are several of my favorites:

  • Jeremiah 29:11:  “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
  • Jeremiah 1:5 Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart.
  • Philippians 1:6 For I am confident of this,  He who began a good work in you will continue to perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus.
  • James 1:17 Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.

In addition to my favorite scriptures, there are many stories of purpose in the Holy Bible that are relevant today.

Why is sacredness important on your path to purpose?

Our path to purpose can be challenging.  Many experience the sheer excitement and bliss when we consciously witness purpose operating in our lives.  And as we move from awareness into practice (remember the process in the process), we face some decisions that support stop, start and continue activities to move forward with our purpose.

Imagine some of the decisions Dr. King made to live his purpose. Can you imagine having a strong suspicion that your days were limited and yet pressing forward? Dr. King is an outstanding example and teaches the principle of being pulled by purpose or your unutterable fulfillment.

We do not have to lead a revolutionary movement to have challenges that expand us. When the requirements of purpose:

  • move us out of our comfort zone,
  • cause us to exchange our long-held false identities for the authenticity of who we are,
  • make shifts and boundaries in relationships,
  • cause us to take stands that may change perceptions,
  • call for unpopular decisions and perspectives,
  • change lifestyles

what will you rely upon to anchor you while you are expanding?

Think of every hero’s story, there is always a cross-road when the heroine makes a shift that pivots the story.  Our assurances and promises that continue to speak and guide beyond the sacred text can be leverageable!  As results-oriented Purpose Peeps, we extract and leverage.  When we offer our sincere asks from a place of love and humility and they are answered in a personal and intimate way that is beyond our understanding of possibility, it is a treasured gift.

In my most candid video (warning it’s a long one) I talk about a Divine Download (something miraculously appearing in my awareness) I received and am actively unlocking–being a soul having a human experience.  It reminds me of the scripture Jeremiah 1:5, “Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you and set you apart.” Wow, God knew my soul before I was formed as a human being.  Who better to connect with about my purpose as a human being than the One who formed me and knew me as a soul?

 

What promises or assurances about purpose anchor you on your path to purpose?  Please share your experiences.

Spark Notes: Celebrate the Stars in Your Life

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

SparkNote_Dec24

We’ve been discussing the star formation this week and integrating the lessons of each phase of formation.  In a previous spark note, we also chatted about the value of letting things breathe.  It is in this spaciousness that the magic, the mysticism, the anointing appears and rests on whatever we are experiencing or creating.

I had a breathing moment this morning.  This morning marks the 21 year of my Grandmother’s transition. Her transition was as beautiful and remarkable as her life and legacy.

She was the star of our family.  She illuminated light. She radiated light and she held a mirror up so that people could witness their light.  She held space for people to grow into his or her purpose.

I did not always understand the role of my Grandmother in my life.  The change from her physical presence was really challenging because I relied on her light, a lot.  Many years later I met someone who reminded me so much of my Grandmother in a way I could not quite wrap my mind around.  One day a sense of knowing rushed through me and I shared with my Godmother, “I get it. I know why you remind me of my Grandmother, it’s because I see Christ in you.”  You can read about this experience and more in Divine Spark.

Celebrate the stars in your life who bring new awareness and spark your purpose.

I am a Christian and Jesus and I have been really close since I was a young child.  And yet I embrace all of my faith traditions.  I grew up traditional Baptist. My father was devout Muslim and I loved and respected his faith tradition.   I also had some experience as a  practicing Jehovah’s Witness and The Church of God and Christ, all before the age of 10!

I loved to go home and visit my kinfolk in the mountains of Virginia.  Some of my favorite experiences were witnessing natural practices that were probably born of Cherokee Indian tradition. I love the Buddhist traditions of some of my close friends and what they teach me about living peacefully and having true intimacy (in to me I see) in my life.  I also love people who are spiritual with no formal religion that radiate light.

Most of my life, I struggled with not really fitting in or people not really understanding what box to put me in.  My struggle was actually a pivotal point in  my path to purpose.  I never belonged in a box!  My unique design was meant to be inclusive. I am just beginning to understand and leverage the tools in my toolkit.

I am your sister in purpose because I love you and all the paths to that which is greater than you which is integral to your purpose path.  My Grandmother helped me to understand this important part of my purpose path because she was accepting of all and as a result everyone felt they were “the one.”  In my Grandmother’s legacy, everyone was a star in some form of star formation.  She had a knowing about this that she demonstrated throughout her life.

Celebrate the stars in your life.  Embrace their lessons and legacy.   It is more that will avail itself to you when you are ready.  The path to ready is to focus your attention on the people and events that really impact you or spark you.  Celebrate the transitions of life and the honor of the baton of  legacy and impact that are passed onto you.  Your sparks were passed onto YOU because the Ultimate Giver of Gifts knew you would take them, be with them and ultimately run with them!

Spark Notes: Despise Not Small Beginnings

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

In the final stage of star formation, before the star illuminates, a trade wind of dual forces causes an eruption from its core , which also blasts away any remaining gas and dust.

The Perception Key to Success reminds us that things are rarely how they first appear.  The Purpose Key to Success anchors our life experiences in the truth that everything has purpose, often multiple purposes, that we uncover over time.

Trade winds are dual force winds that propel what is in its center.  Airplanes take off in trade winds.  Can you recall being in the pressure of two directions that cause you to leap, to fly into action that defies logic?

It is interesting that the trade winds of star formation cause an eruption from its core.  What if life causes trade winds that cause our purpose to erupt from our core?  What if the trade wind disruptions are on assignment to birth purpose in our lives?

What if, like the star, we get a dual gift of blasting away any remnants of old parts of ourselves that like the gas and dust of a forming star, were once integral to our development and now dull our shine and ultimate purpose?

The end of the star formation concludes a process that began millions of years ago!  Whatever star power brilliance that is being cultivated in us has a due date to illuminate.  Know you possess the components of your brilliance and trust your process to illuminate.

Spark Notes: Heat attracts, activates and produces

In star formation, the final stage before the its illumination, heat intensifies and it attracts what is needed to progress, the heat activates the next stage of creation where something new is produced.

The Keys to Success of Trusting In the Process, Faith & Relationships are key to complete massive vision and impact.  It is the heat, in the most challenging of times that attracts some of our most deeply held keys to success and serves as a magnet for resources to find and connect with us.

I’ve heard many people teach don’t give up before the miracle.  The heat of our challenges intensifies just before we call uncle and give up.  Viewing intensifying heat as a part of the last leg of our transformative process may lend just enough space to breathe and finish the process.

Spark Notes: Transformation Requires Taking In New Material

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

SparkNotes_Dec21

In star formation, after transforming shape through movement, the movement quickens and the new form takes in new material that forms a hot center core.

The Key of Transformation requires inclusion of new material.  New material could be new people, places, things, new thoughts or renewal of existing thoughts, insight and knowledge.

This part of the transformation of the star really sparks me.  It sparks me because it extends the inclusiveness of the greater team.  When the star form moves from changing shape to blending into a new form, it reaches outward to become more.  This is akin to purpose, we may hold a vision individually but when it comes to the vision taking form, it requires a greater team.

Another thing that sparks me is the heat.  The heat in the star formation is so intense that it melts and molds into a new center core.  It is from this center core that the star will shine and be visible millions of miles away.

It is in the heat of life that we may feel the most lost and yet be experiencing the most impactful moments of our lives! We do not know who is watching us journey in life.  Like the star that is destined to shine millions of miles away–one day, we do not fully know the light legacy we are leaving.

 

Consider if the journey is as important as our purpose.  Consider that our ability to avail ourselves to our process and lend ourselves as part of the greater team in the purpose or vision of another is some of our most purposeful work.  The star could not complete its process without taking in  new material to build its core.
