The song of your heart: What did you come here to do?

Your heart has the answer, but you must be ready to listen to the song that has always been there.

by Stacey Badger — 

Why have I come here? What was I born to do? The answers to these questions give meaning and purpose to life. The answers to these questions let us know that our lives have purpose and are not in vain.

Many people have no idea what they want to do in this lifetime, yet they know something is missing. Maybe you are fortunate to have work in these challenging economic times, and yet you may still feel a void — something is missing that you cannot explain.

Perhaps you are not working now and feel desperate for work, willing to accept any position that allows you to pay your bills and survive. If you are working, you might long to find something new because you feel dissatisfaction, even though you have no idea what would be better.

Your heart has the answer, but you must be ready to listen to the song that has always been there. A song resides deep inside you that knows the truth of what you came here to do.

How do you listen to and hear this song? You can begin by taking time each day to pause and listen to yourself. You can do this before or after work or at any time during the day when you have at least five to 10 minutes of quiet time.

If you cannot find five to 10 minutes of quiet time, then play some favorite music and begin to move around. Dance! Dance for three to five minutes, but before you start moving, ask yourself, “What is the song of my heart? What did I come here to do?”

Dance, and then sit down and write anything that came to you while moving or anything which comes up after you sit down. This can be a first step in listening to your heart and opening yourself to your heart’s message.

If you do not feel comfortable moving your body, then try meditation or something that feels right. Before you begin, ask the same questions: What is my heart’s song? What did I come here to do?

Let your heart tell you why you were born. Let your heart tell you about the work your spirit came to do. Then you will have lived your life knowing that you gave your all, completed your mission and left with no regrets.
