“If you look at your life in hindsight from a bird’s-eye view, and see all the dots of experiences, events, decisions and disasters woven together, you will be awe struck by the absolute beauty and magnificence of the tapestry that was undoubtedly woven together to guide you to each step of your master plan, ultimately leading to your destination.”
– Rajni Kurichh
I’ve talked about how to find your life purpose on a few occasions. As I’ve said, I believe that there are clues from our childhood that guide us to discover our passion and purpose in this life. I’ve also noted on many occasions how synchronicities guide us on our path – they guide me almost every day with my writing, and if you pay attention, you will see that everything you’ve done and experienced has led you to the point you are at today – to the place you are meant to be in your journey.
“I truly believe that everything we do, and everyone we meet is put in our path for a purpose. There are no accidents; we’re all teachers – if we’re willing to pay attention to the lessons we learn, trust our positive instincts and not be afraid to take risks.”

So, when I read The Sixth Insight in The Celestine Prophecy, it blew me away. It takes my thoughts a step further, and states that you can find guidance to discovering your life purpose by not only examining all of the synchronicities and experiences throughout your life, but by looking for the meaning each of your parents’ lives have taught you. It makes perfect sense.
My father was all about education, the pursuit of knowledge, spiritual growth, and understanding, and my mother is more of a doer, she has always been the practical one. My father was an introvert, and my mother is more interested social interactions.
I have found my purpose somewhere in the middle. I am totally in my element spending time on my own in pursuit of life’s bigger questions – I get my passion for reading and learning all the things I write about from my dad. I’m definitely a doer like my mother, and I need social interaction as well. I’ve found balance with the messages I’ve taken from each of my parents by sharing information of a spiritual nature in a practical manner with my writing, through a social platform.
The Sixth Insight: Sensing A Life Mission
“Remembering the truth you’ve been prepared to tell the world.
The process of finding your true spiritual identity involves looking at your whole life as one long story, trying to find a higher meaning. Begin by asking yourself this question: why was I born to this particular family? What might have been the purpose for that?
Every human being whether they are conscious of it or not illustrates with their lives how he or she thinks a human being is supposed to live. You must try to discover what your parents taught you and at the same time what about their lives could have been done better. What you would have changed about your parents is what you are working on.
We are not merely the physical creation of our parents; we are also the spiritual creation. You were born to these two people and their lives had an irrevocable effect on who you are. To discover your real self, you must admit that the real you began in a position between their truths. That’s why you were born there: to take a higher perspective on what they stood for. Your path is about discovering a truth that is a higher synthesis of what your parents believed.
Each of us must look at the significant turns in our lives and reinterpret them in light of our evolutionary question. Try to perceive the sequence of interests, important friends, coincidences that have occurred in your life. Weren’t they leading you somewhere?
When you fully integrate this view of your life, you will have achieved a clear awareness of your spiritual path. We all must spend as much time as necessary going through this process of clearing your past. Most of us have a control drama we have to transcend but once we do, we can comprehend the higher meaning for why we were born to our particular parents, and what all the twists and turns of our lives were preparing us to do. We all have a spiritual purpose, a mission, that we have been pursuing without being fully aware of it, and once we bring it completely into consciousness, our lives can take off.
The more we stay connected, the more we are acutely aware of those times when we lose connection, usually when we are under stress. In these times, we can see our own particular way of stealing energy from others. Once our manipulations are brought to personal awareness, our connection becomes more constant and we can discover our own growth path in life, and our spiritual mission–the personal way we can contribute to the world.
Experiencing moments of profound “Spiritual Connection” opens us to The Sixth Insight. We begin to receive a sense of clarity for where Synchronicity is taking us; what our “Life Direction” might be. This consciousness brings the strong Intuitions and guides us to our mission in this life. This could fall within any area of human endeavor or in the areas of life from relationships to finding passion in a career (education, business, medicine, or government services.) It is usually a vague glimpse of our future destiny, one that invokes in us a heightened sense of inspiration and fulfillment. Though somewhat undetermined, our Intuitions can stand as a general goal that will help us understand, and follow, our Synchronistic path and help us move forward.”

Take some time to examine your life’s path and discover your passion and purpose. What message have your received from each of your parent’s lives? How does it shape your path? Do you see the sequence of interests, important friends, coincidences and synchronicities that have occurred in your life? Have they led you to your passion?
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
