Finding your Soul Purpose
with David Straus

on How to find your Soul’s Purpose

Not everyone has to fail in order to succeed. 

It is different for every person, and that is absolutely okay.
Sometimes when we see people who are successful, we forget that they also had to go through a journey and we start judging them.

This comes from a place of contraction and is a great opportunity for us to remind ourselves that first of all everyone has their own path and the way it unfolds and then also to check in with us to really question, am I in an expanded state right now? Or do I only see what is equal to my contracted state right now? Because we can only have information come in that is equal to how we feel. 

So when we can catch ourselves in a moment of judgement and remember to go into expansion we might be more receptive to see the bigger/ fuller picture of the journey that person went through that we’re judging in this moment.

Nevertheless, failure and tripping on our way is totally normal and we can learn and grow from it. When we can remember to see these lessons from and for a state that expands us rather than contracts us.

What were your biggest challenges and how did you overcome it? Share it with me! 💯

We create stories 100% of the time. Some of the stories serve us and other stories don’t.  Some stories feel real to us like “those aren’t stories that’s real” snd other stories feel like we just made it up. The thing is we have the ability to rewrite any story we’ve created.  We have the ability to rewrite the stories created for us or about us. 

The process of rewriting a story can be difficult because first we need to be aware of our stories.  Aware of those things said to us or about us as we grow up. Those things we believe about ourselves that we create more stories from and mold our reality around.  When we understand and are aware of this we have the ability to rewrite our stories. Create new ones. Mold and manifest the life we desire through the stories we choose rather than the stories we may not choose.  This is more simply said then done until a moment when a deep awareness may come to us allowing what was once difficult to become easy, as easy as our breath, as easy as simply remembering who we truly are and why we are here.

We're always in charge of our life.

We're on this journey here to remember that we are the creators of our lives. And we often forget that. This gets us into a state of victim consciousness because we think that things are happening to us. But when we step into the knowing and understanding that we create our reality we can then actually take more action towards creating what we want. And we always do.

We always do it, by feeling what it feels like if a future thing we want or don't want appears in our life. And then it shows up.

So when we start using that knowing and feeling to shift and constantly remember ourselves what we want to create, then we actually start embodying that future before it is there.

But by feeling it on an authentic level in our bodies, as if we already accomplished it, then it will come to us. The thing we want will meet us. 

What do you remember you created by stepping into the feeling first?

I began to help people identify their soul purpose (different than your vocation or a purpose statement) back in 2011 - 10 years ago. 

What I love about the process is that everyone I have worked with around the world in this process can identify a Soul Purpose that creates more expansion, more inspiration, more awareness, more self reflection, within themselves and for themselves. AND it is important to remember that feeling of expansion, awareness, self reflection is available to us having NOTHING to do with the Soul Purpose statement. 

Ones Soul Purpose is just a tool a tool you can have in your toolbox of tools that help you grow, that help you feel more expansive, that essentially just remind all of us of who we are and what our passion is and why we are here. 

There are many different tools we can use to trigger us into that feeling.  This is but one. If you're interested in learning more about this one, watch or listen to the podcast with @antonwisbiski 

@antonwisbiski happens to be an amazing interviewer because he listens with his heart and knows how to get curious.  Thank you, Anton.

Surrender does not mean giving up. In fact our ability to surrender takes strength and deep awareness. It is a moment of transition and a moment of growth. 🙏

True surrender does not mean giving up, it takes strength and fortitude, determination and deep awareness. It is through the process of this type of surrender that each one of us has the ability to accomplish our most cherished dreams, creating them in such a way that becomes effortless, and fun, It will feel like you are in synchs with the world and aligned with your greatest dreams.

Once in a while always when I least expect it, it feels like I leave my body and travel. During one of these journeys a poem which I called Find Me Please came to me. You can read or listen to the entire poem by going to the poetry link above. This is an excerpt about our connection with .... well many things and all things primarily ourselves. Please share if you are so moved.

I wrote this for you. Yes specifically for you. Do not assume it was written for anyone but you. Take it in and own it and once you recognize yourself in it share it and let them know it was written for them as well. 🙏

There is always more. More for us to learn more for us to experience more for us to enjoy.  More love. More a Abundance in all forms for all beings. More peace. More comfort.  More empathy. More understanding.  What in your life are you settled with that you couldn’t find more if for yourself, your family and the world.  Share with people who you think may want the reminder. 🙏❤️💓

All the feelings we have inside ourselves are mirrored on the outside and we are actually reflecting those feelings back to us. If we want to shift the way we show up to the world it starts by recognizing and bringing awareness to our very own feelings. We have the ability to approach all conflict with a feeling of expansion rather than contraction and hate.

We reflect back what we feel. When we feel anger then anger is reflected back. When we feel small - small is reflected back. When we go deep and expansive and can find the unconditional love inside ourselves then that unconditional love is reflected back. So when we must stand up and speak our truth no matter where we are speaking it no matter what that truth is if we can do so from love and compassion we have a chance of being heard and shifting of transforming of evoking.

🔭 I'm in search of the miraculous every moment of every moment. 

And so when I have the pleasure of speaking with you, my clients, a room of people, I get to remind them. 

It's actually a selfish thing because in the process of reminding somebody else I'm really reminding myself. When I remind myself, I get to find the miraculous again and again. I know that if I'm finding it again I'm only able to find it because whoever I'm speaking with is also discovering it. 

That's why I love doing my work. And I don't think of this as work. I just think of this as being that's powerful. 

Do you agree with me? 🙏🏻

I like to tell people that there's nothing I'm going to say that you don't already know. Why? Because what I say might be something that you haven't thought of recently, or I might say something that you haven't thought of in this lifetime. But when I say something and it lands for you, if it feels like it's already inside of you, it means you already know it. And that's what an “Aha Moment” is. 

When we have an “Aha Moment”, it's like all of a sudden, you're reminded of something you've known your entire life that you haven't thought of yet, or you haven't thought of recently. What I love doing is helping people remember those aspects of themselves.

Our ability to truly let go and surrender, and connect to the All There is, will allow each of us to truly individuate, be a leader, and be everything we want to be in the world.

The intellect will always find a way to justify “just one more thing” for as long and as much as you allow it to. This action stems from overlooking what is already here and already you. The true you is All There Is.

When one can release the temptation of becoming better by worldly standards and prioritize connecting with that truth at the core of all existence, then one becomes positioned to be a true leader, as this channel of inner direction is clear and unobstructed. They can then decide accordingly which routes to navigate in the earthly sense now that the illusions of impermanence have been sincerely surrendered and let go.

True vision is the sight of knowing, as both seemingly inner and outer worlds collapse into one. Experiences are suddenly recognized “in front of” the ever constant, ever present awareness that you are. Illusion is removed from eyes once veiled with fog, and separation is no longer, nor has it ever been. Confusion dissolves in the infinite ocean of clarity.

Oneness is known, and depending on the depths one dives into this connection with their true being, cannot be forgotten.

When we are deeply connected, we have access to true vision that removes the veil of illusion.

Do you resonate this with me?

✨ There is only one truth, articulated through many languages from oceans of poets and galaxies of scientists alongside mountains of spiritualists. You'll know when you discover it because your mind will quiet while your soul expands beyond your wildest imagination. 

It has found itself expressed through multiple translations reaching ears and networks of neurons that are tuned to understand better from some than from others.

These pointers to truth are to be received at a level deeper than the mind. When one can sit in this receiving, a feeling of remembering perhaps, and dive in further and further, the act of persistence will bear fruits in a way that can only be known by the pure intention, desire and commitment. We will simply know based on what we have experienced.

Love is ultimately the most genuine place one can abide in, and all actions stemming from these roots will inseparably affect all. Doing and being from the space of love is doing and being from our true self. 

From love, we are whole, we are one, and we continue to invite greater wholeness and oneness into our many bodies from light to dense.

And so, accordingly, when we come from love in our engagement with the mirrors before us, we invite greater harmony, and thus healing, into both our emanation as well as theirs, for again, all is one.

Love is ever present through all space and all time. Through every range of emotion, love can be found. Even when one is not consciously aware of it, love rings through every and all reality. Recognizing the love that exists in all is seeing with clear vision.

In what ways do you express love in the truest form? ❤️✨

Simply put, what we feel deep inside as we engage with anything creates more potential to feel even more the very same thing. Essentially how we feel creates more of how we feel, so why not choose to feel what we want to attract back to ourselves.

If or when one begins to notice their world – and all they perceive to be a part of it – become mundane, drab, uninteresting, or any flavor of lackluster, it would be helpful at this time to drop inward and reflect on the reigns of subtle or obvious control one bears over their life.

Control is essentially locked into a foundation of fear, and even deeper, the fear of death. Either by choice or coming to a point of strong catalyst that may aggressively shake one’s worldview, finally surrendering and releasing one’s once tightly latched perspectives can be accepted.

One lets go of the known – the predictable – and in doing so can experience all of the utter magic in the space of complete unknown. It is like having endless room to deeply breathe once again. 

Life is renewed and the world is returned it’s vivid color. The unknown is infinite, it is where all potentials exist.

This is to say that one can never exhaust their surrendering to the unknown, for it can and will always lead to a new experience with the consistency of reminding one of the magic they behold.

The more connected we are, the more expansive we are.

When we are deeply connected to our Higher Self, we have access to true vision that removes the veil of illusion. This deep connection happens in the company of feelings of expansiveness, inspiration, and the fullness of our hearts. These feelings unlock a unique movement, a unique pull in a new direction that fuels one to create that which they are specifically called to create.

It is here our physical, mental and emotional bodies can recharge, and it is here, which is ultimately nowhere, that we can know our Self.

Are you ready to be in your actual Self?

The magnificent beauty of you perceived through the senses still cannot compare to that which lays deep in your heart. 

Traveling there is much closer than you may think, so close that close truthfully does not even exist, and your ticket for travel is ever available - an opportunity you can choose in any moment.

This reminds us that we are merely a reflection of each other, a reflection of the universe which lives deep within us that we project out for the fun of growing and learning. 

For the pleasure of living a life which is unexpected so that we may be reminded of our truth.

Do you feel the same way too? ❤️

❤️ The voice in your head might give you a belief, but the voice in your heart will give you a knowing.

The more self aware we become, the more we can understand and see what is sometimes hidden from our view. This is what creates wisdom, and what experience brings us over many years. You can choose if you want to create this awareness for yourself every moment, of every moment.

What experience did you have that reflected on this? Share it with me in the comment section! 👇🏼✨

🙏🏼 It is the oneness of you that will hold you. It is you that which is inside you so deeply that we often ignore looking for the answers from the out side, but each of us holds the answer inside. Through the feeling of oneness and connectedness, we can actually become more individuated and unique.

We just need to get the oneness deep within us.
