Exercise 3 – Do Your Soul Work & Your Sacred Work

Here I want to introduce you to a basic concept, the difference between your soul work and your sacred work, your soul work, the way I’m going to define it is the work you really feel called to do that you believe is your life purpose, and what you’re here to contribute to the world. Sacred work, I’m going to suggest his work that supports you. That might not be your sole work, but it still supports your journey. It pays the bills, it makes sure you’re able to contribute to society. And the reason I have these two is because it’s been something I’ve been working with, for over 20 years since I’ve been in the workforce. My father is an entrepreneur, my mother’s more of a psychology spirituality type of focus in what she would study. And so I’ve always been looking to balance these two. And at times, I could make a lot of money, doing things that weren’t my sole work and maybe sometimes They felt completely shallow or meaningless. Sometimes it felt pretty good. And sometimes they really felt like I was doing my soul work and making a lot of money. But I haven’t yet found that there’s a formula to say whether or not a person should do their soul work to make a living or not. I’ve seen countless examples of it working and not working in different ways. So I’ve seen people that do their soul work, that don’t make a lot of money, they love their soul work, but they have to have a side job to pay their bills. I’ve seen people that do their soul work, and that’s what they choose to do. And they make a lot of money. And that’s awesome. And then I also see people who are kind of in between where they’re trying to make it work. And maybe it’s easier if they’re single, or don’t have a lot of attachments or people that are responsible for. Maybe they are married and they have kids and now that they want to do their soul work, but Gosh, it’s just so hard to do it because I’ve got these bills to pay. And so what I’m going to suggest to you is there’s not a one size fits all approach to this. I don’t know what’s best for you. But I’m going to open you up to this conversation if you if you’d like, and put it in front of you and invite you to invite divine wisdom and guidance and support to help you figure out what’s the best answer or answers for you. So now I invite you to prepare to connect. Open your mind and heart to the possibility that you can connect with the divine. decide that you would like to connect with the divine. I’d invite the divine to guide you in this process. Close your eyes and silently breathe in and out, focusing on your breath. Count to three as you breathe in and count to three As you breathe out, do this for 30 seconds. And as you do this, maintain your intention to connect with the divine and to open up to receiving guidance, support and wisdom. Asked the divine to guide you in this work.
