Metaphysical

Do you recognize your life’s work?

The butterfly never needs to ask what its life's work is. It just knows and gets started.

“What is my life’s work? What is it that I am meant to do?” I hear this question from almost every past life regression client that comes to me for help. So, time after time, I hear the client’s soul speak to them when they are deep in trance, telling them their “mission” or life’s work. Almost invariably, they are told that deep down, they know what their work is, but they don’t want to believe it or they don’t want to do it. They doubt themselves and their inner knowing, and they use this doubt to kid themselves that they don’t know where to start. Maybe, on some levels, they do know, but their rational voice has told them that they can’t or shouldn’t.

These bees have lots of work to do. They don't ask the queen what she needs; they just know.

Recently, someone asked a variation on this theme. The client had noticed that she had a knack for doing something that others didn’t. She wanted to know why. Was she somehow chosen for work that others were not chosen to do? The Divine answered with something that I think many of us need to hear. She was good at it because she had chosen to be good at it. The work had not chosen her, she had chosen the work. And that was good with her soul.

  1. Lovely post Karel.

    I like the last sentence a lot. The work had not chosen her, she had chosen the work. And that was good with her soul. << I am blessed with a work I know my soul has chosen. I have no regret on my line of work because I chose it and planning on doing for the rest of my life. I know I won't be as happy as I am now if I had chosen the work that my college should lead me. I studied Analytical Chemistry and should have worked in laboratory but I am not interested in facing dead things (laboratory equipment) all day long, I am interested in human life.

  2. Great logic! When we have special gifts from the Creation, the life’s work is to use them and share them.
    Sometimes it is difficult to keep sight of that very simple logic. Thank you for the reminder. My husband has been reminding me as well. Sometimes I let the busy work interfere with the use of my gifts. I had been praying a lot about whether or not I am doing the life’s work that God has meant for me to do. So one night I had one of those dream visions in which a lovely lady that I have never seen before showed me several pages of writing that just blew me out of the saddle. I couldn’t read it but I asked her where she got them and she said, “Your Father.” Well, don’t we think of God as our Father? What puzzles me is that I couldn’t read it but I had the knowledge that it was very important. The same way when a band of angels came to visit me one night and talked to me; I couldn’t understand them but I heard them. What is the answer to that?! I am going to need a very long life to figure this stuff out!

    • This is a question that often has more than one answer. It can certainly come in a dream, in a regression, in a meditation. There is often more than one theme involved, which means our work is complex and can take several paths at once. Usually, it is something you have a knack or affinity towards. But where you take that knack is often unexpected for people. Often, they are not so pleased to hear that it goes right through a place where they have much fear and self-doubt. Often that is why it was chosen as their life work – to help them work through these issues. I wish you well in finding your life’s work.
