What did you want to be when you grew up? Who did you want to become? Did you have an idea? Did you have a gut feeling of knowing that “this is what I want to do”? I’ve always believed that everyone has a purpose on this earth. I also believe that no matter how old you are, whether you are 12 or 88 years old, you have a specific path that will guide you through life and you will be able to figure out who you are and what you are meant to do will come to you at different points in your life.
In the book, The Alchemist by Paul Coelho, the main theme is not only spiritual but also about the main character Santiago to find his Personal Legend. He is meant to figure out who he is and who he is to become and to see if he has become what he has always wanted for him. When I was a kid, I had read this book and thought to myself about what I wanted more than anything in the world. And even though I wanted to be an archaeologist or a history teacher, the two main things that I wanted to become was a healer and an author. Ironically enough, I have become those two things. The universe has helped me become what I wanted for myself. The universe and my own spiritual path guided me down the rocky road that leads me to here and now. Sure, it is tough sometimes but life is always going to be tough.The one thing I have noticed though is that the universe and my spiritual path are not only focusing on those two things, they are also focusing on what I want internally. Externally, I wanted to be a healer and an author. Internally, I want to find my home in the spiritual realm and to seek enlightenment for myself. I can constantly tell when a new lesson is to be learned and can tell when I am progressing in the way that my heart, mind and soul wants me to. The universe is there to guide me, just like my spiritual path is.
This goes for everyone around the world. When you sit there and think about what you wanted when you were a kid, what do you remember? Do you remember what you truly wanted to be? Did you want to be a scientist, teacher, maybe a painter? Did you find yourself by going to church, being in nature, or in the books that lay all over your bedroom and living room floor? Even if you can’t remember right now what it is that you want, your mind, heart and soul knows what you truly want and is constantly working on helping you achieve those accomplishments. Even if you can’t remember right now, just remember that the universe and your own spiritual path knows what you want and is guiding you along the way.
