It’s essential to answer the question accurately, “What Is Your Life Purpose” because most people get it wrong. You’ll hear a short statement declaring this is my Life Purpose, when in fact, all that has been said is a life purpose statement that has been made up. There is a tremendous amount of misunderstanding about what a Life Purpose is, and therefore mis-information about your precise purpose and reason for being here and the meaning of your Life. This has led to much confusion. I see it all the time in my clients who have done Life Purpose work yet are none the wiser about their actual purpose. If you don’t understand what Life Purpose actually is, in other words, if you don’t fully comprehend the definition of the term and all it entails, then you don’t know what you are looking for. You have to understand what you are looking for to find it or to know you have found the right thing when you find something you think might be your purpose.

What Is Our Soul’s Purpose?
Our Soul has a purpose that is different from our actual Life Purpose and Higher Purpose. Many people use the term Soul Purpose when they really mean Life Purpose. The Soul’s Purpose is the same regardless of the individual. That is the purpose of expansion. Your Soul expresses itself by animating your body, working through you to expand its awareness, consciousness, energy, experiences, understanding, knowledge, and abilities.
What Is Your Life Purpose?
Your Life Purpose, on the other hand, is more precise and focused. Life Purpose is different from Soul Purpose because it carries a more significant differentiation and meaning in Life. While we all have the same Soul purpose – expansion, how you expand, or the best way for you to grow as an individual, is what your Soul has chosen as your Life Purpose. Your Life Purpose is about your Life here on earth, not out there in the spiritual realms. Does that make sense? Your Life Purpose is simply the big picture or umbrella, if you will, of your entire reason for being here. Your purpose is made up of several elements including:
