Create Your Sacred Work

Does it feel a little lackluster? Does it make you feel happy?

Maybe it’s time to think about creating your sacred work.

What Makes Up Your Sacred Work?

It’s the body of work that you accomplish during your lifetime.
Your sacred work is the legacy you create from that work.

It is a creative expression of yourself.

Creating your sacred work revolves around something you are passionate about.
It also takes advantage of your strengths, talents, and experience.

Are you on the right track with your life’s work?

Here are a few questions to guide you.

If you feel that your work life needs more meaning it’s time to start thinking about creating your sacred work.

Your work will have a deeper meaning as well as have a lasting, long-term impact on the world.

Don’t worry about how young or old you are . . . or if you haven’t started yet.

Some of the greatest accomplishments have been contributed by people later in life.

The Difference Between a Life Purpose and Sacred Calling

I first became aware of the phrase life purposes years ago. One day while journaling, I started channel writing about my life purpose.  In the writings, it stated my mission is to help balance the masculine/feminine energy on earth.

I was struggling to understand life purposes, so this mission was a bit baffling to me. I had no idea what it meant or what to do with it.

 

Here is what I learned since then:

Life Purposes

Your Life Purpose is your overall reason for living and it is what you contribute to the world.

You are already living your purpose. You don’t need to discover it. All you need to do is recognize it.

Your Life Purpose may be as a healer, teacher, or leader.

Our life purposes have to do with raising the collective consciousness of the world. You live and breath your life purpose. You use it every day without even knowing it. Our life purpose helps to shift others (and ourselves) up to into a higher vibrational energy.

Your life purpose falls into one or more of these positive energy levels.

Collective Consciousness Levels
Enlightenment
Peace
Love
Joy
Empowerment
Acceptance

My life purpose of helping to balance the masculine/feminine energy falls into the category of helping to bring enlightenment to the world. I’ve noticed I work to achieve that in my personal life. I have always been in tune with how the two energies work together. As a spiritual teacher and healer, I apply my purpose to the words I write and the products and services I offer.

Sacred Callings

Your Sacred Calling is more specific. It’s a sacred calling to live your life purpose in a more purposeful way. Our sacred callings are the urge to do something with our life purpose. It encompasses your purpose, talents, skills, life experience, and passions.

Your Sacred Calling is your life purpose and life experience put into action.

Your calling helps others to move to one of the more expansive positive energy levels through your work.

How do you know when it’s time to create your Sacred Calling?

You’ll know it when you get that feeling that says you were meant to do more with your life. Most likely it will be set in motion when you start searching for your life purpose.

Recap: 

Knowing your “why” (Life Purpose) and your “how” (Sacred Calling) is a powerful combination when it comes to starting a business or new career.

It’s about combining your purpose with your sacred work.

The two together give you purposeful mission.

 

Why Finding Your Sacred Calling is Important

The Importance of Sacred Work

Creating your sacred work is one way you can enhance your spiritual development. This is why it’s important you focus on building a career based on our sacred calling.

You spend a lot of time working. The average workweek is 40 hours or more. With this much time devoted to your work, doesn’t it make sense to do something that brings you joy and happiness?

Your work is a big part of your identity. It can have a positive or negative effect on your self-worth. Why?

Your work is an important way you express yourself.

This is why it matters what you do for a living. You spend a lot of time working and gaining experience. Why not use that time to provide even more value to yourself and others?

Can you embrace your sacred calling AND work in a job/business that fulfills your purpose in life?

Yes, you can.

Life doesn’t have to be perfect to get started on your sacred calling. In fact, there is no perfect time.

Perfection is not the goal. Leading a happy and fulfilled life is . . .

 

Discover Your Sacred Calling

Spiritual Luminaries feel they have a sacred calling in life. This calling is something they feel directed to do. This feeling you have drives you to act.

The push to fulfill your destiny drives you into action.

However, a lot of Spiritual Luminaries don’t feel confident about what their sacred calling is and what they should do.

You can easily mistake your sacred calling as nothing more than a dream.

You also may feel you are meant to do something BIG but don’t understand what is holding you back.

It can be a scary experience to feel awakened but not knowing exactly which path to follow.

 

Not sure if you even have a sacred calling? Look at your dreams and desires. Is there one that keeps repeating over and over? If so, it may be a hint to your sacred calling.

If you can’t manage to follow your sacred calling as a full-time career try starting in your spare time. For example, If you have been wanting to write a book, then start writing your spare time. Allow your passion fuel your desire for a fulfilling career.

Look for a way that you can make your dream a reality. Once you do, you will move in the direction of your sacred calling.

What is a Sacred Calling?

What is a Sacred Calling?

Sacred Calling is a vocation created around your life path.

A Sacred Callings purpose is to serve others to make the world a better place.

I believe that we each born with a unique combination of gifts that we need to share with others.

I also believe we’re here on Earth to spread joy and love. It’s the mission of spiritually-minded people.

The Sacred Calling you are given is for you to share your gifts and talents with the “world”. Some Sacred Callings may require an apprenticeship or learning experience before starting a business.  Don’t worry, though. You don’t need to be perfect to share your unique gifts and talents.

Is a Sacred Calling Only for Entrepreneurs?

You sacred calling can be either a career or a business you start. I chose to start my own business because I enjoy being independent and doing my own thing.

However, since a lot of entrepreneurs don’t have the luxury to volunteer full-time, I’ll focus on how to turn your Divine Calling into a business.

The great thing is, your Sacred Calling isn’t just a long spiritual journey to enlightenment. It’s about focusing on where you are NOW.

This means you can create and recreate Sacred Calling from all the experiences, skills, and passions you develop during your lifetime.

You get to create your reality and choose to fulfill your mission to share with the world.
