If you’re a spiritual seeker or a mystical soul, chances are you look for signs from the universe, listen to the whispers of your heart, and pay attention to the messages from your intuition.
I know, because I’m a seeker too, and I love to work with my crystals to discover more about myself and my soul path.
Take a moment to pause and ask yourself:
- What are you feeling most called to in your life right now?
- Is there something you feel like you MUST do, try out, or experience?
- What do you have a deep longing for that would feel supportive, nurturing, and authentic to you?
- If you could take any next step on your path toward happiness and personal fulfillment, what would it be?
When we pause and listen to our inner guidance, we can discover our soul calling and identify where we’re being guided. Living in alignment with your soul purpose is about connecting to yourself as authentically as you can and showing up as your whole self in your day-to-day life. It’s about consistently staying in flow by tuning into the messages from your intuition and the way it whispers to you to nudge you in the right direction. It’s about embodying your calling in each step of your journey.
I feel so grateful to have discovered my soul calling, and I want you to feel as in sync with the universe as I do. I want you to experience the same joy and sense of fulfillment that comes from knowing that you’re living in alignment with your soul purpose.
Are Crystals Part of Your Soul Calling?
Before we go any further, I want to clarify something important…
Soul purpose may mean something different to each of us. There are no right or wrong answers about what soul purpose means to you, as long as it’s authentic…as long as it feels healing and invites you to drop into your heart space…and as long as it feels in alignment with how you want your life to feel.
But sometimes soul purpose gets framed as your career or what you do for work – and although you can sometimes incorporate what you’re called to do on a soul level into your career or work, this isn’t the case for many folks. There is often societal judgment, due to capitalism, that tells us that our passions are not worthwhile or valuable if they’re not making us money. So we often get fooled into thinking that our soul path has to involve our career, but this couldn’t be further from the truth.
Though some may choose to incorporate their passions into their careers, others may choose to keep these two facets of their life separate. Both ways of walking the path are valid – and both ways are meaningful.
Following your soul path is about doing the things that you feel wildly passionate about…the things that spirit calls you to do…the things that make you light up.
We can have many important paths that each lead to us feeling fulfilled in different ways. In other words…
Your SOUL purpose isn’t your SOLE purpose.
Sometimes we get confused or fooled into thinking that our soul purpose is ONE THING that we’re here on this earth to do. I know how easy it is to get caught up in the idea that your soul purpose is just ONE BIG thing, especially when it fills up a big part of your life. Maybe you feel like your soul purpose is being a mother, or a caregiver, or a teacher. For me, my ONE BIG thing is teaching others about crystals. I love it – it fills me up, it brings me joy – and it’s my SOUL purpose…
But…it isn’t my SOLE purpose. I’m also a wife, a gardener, an aspiring artist, and a lover of books, and herbs, and good food! The list goes on and on.
Living in alignment with my soul purpose means honoring all of these passions and parts of myself.
It means connecting with the things that bring me joy and stepping into each new adventure with excitement. It means understanding that I have a story that’s more complex than just one thing…and so do you.
Part of what makes discovering your soul purpose so important is that it’s this active exploration of life itself that can help you uncover new things about yourself, the world you live in, and your connection to it. It’s through your lived experience that you shape who you are and how you show up in the world.
- Your soul purpose may shift and change over time.
- Your soul purpose may be multi-faceted.
- And discovering your soul purpose, again and again, is a messy, imperfect, and beautiful adventure of self, community, and of your connection to the greater whole.
The clarity and connection you feel with your soul purpose may also ebb and flow with each new phase of your life. If you’re feeling uncertain or unclear about your next steps forward, you may try reaching for your crystals as a source of support to help you find your footing and rekindle your passion.
