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:
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
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.
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.
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.
