The one about “what is my life’s purpose…”

For those of you who are Friends buffs, you’ll get the reference in my title.  Every episode of Friends is titled “The one with…” or “The one about…”  For some reason it just fit for this post.  Anyway…

Determining your life’s purpose to some people sounds like a load of crap.  There are spiritual people, non-spiritual people and people who just don’t really think too much about it at all.  I think I fall somewhere on the side of spiritual-ish/dreamer – if that’s a thing. I definitely believe in God although I’m what you’d call a “fake Jew.” The last time I was in a temple was for a Jewish friend’s wedding and before that, probably my cousin’s Bat Mitzvah.  I don’t really do much “praying” in the formal sense but I know there is someone up there watching over me, guiding me and hopefully steering me in the right direction when I stray too far.  I celebrate the traditions of my family’s religion and value them very much.  Additionally, I love celebrating the traditions of Christmas and I don’t really care if that makes me a bad Jew or not!  Anyway…

This post actually isn’t about religion at all, so I digress.  A few weeks ago I had a birth chart reading from someone I’ve known for a while.  I won’t go into too much detail about how I know her but I will say that she is a true believer and can probably make a believer out of you if you are even slightly “spirit-curious” (I just made that word up but you get the idea…).  I have never seen ghosts or heard voices-but I believe others who claim to have.  I’ve always believed in Heaven but not Hell (Probably wishful thinking…). I do believe in signs from the universe.  I do believe the clichéd saying that was coincidentally my sorority’s motto. “Everything happens for a reason.”  I do believe that we are all put here for a reason but I’m not sure many of ever find out what that reason is.  You get the idea.  I was “spirit-curious” for lack of a better word.

I had no idea what to expect.  Was she a physic?  Was she going to tell me when I’d die?  Was she going to tell me anything she didn’t already know from knowing me and viewing my Facebook profile?  Well I can say it wasn’t what I expected.  Basically, I provided my exact time, date and year of birth and she did the rest.  I had no idea what a birth chart was or what you could determine from it, but apparently it’s a lot.  She was able to see my past life (still not sure if I believe in this part honestly, but for some reason what she said DID make sense and just felt like it could be true so who knows…) but more importantly she was able to see my current life very clearly.  She could see traits I had, things I needed to work out, when my “windows of opportunity”and the age-old “why am I here.”  It wasn’t all what I wanted to hear (she quickly put to rest my belief that I was absolutely meant to live my life on a beach and casually write all day – damn!), but almost all of it just made sense.  It also gave me a lot to think about.  One thing she stressed was not to spend too much time trying to figure out how you’ll get there but just let things happen.  I don’t want to give away too much of what she said but in a way I’ve already unknowingly been headed toward what I’m “supposed to be doing.”  One thing I found interesting is that writing may not necessarily be ultimately what I’ll end up doing but it will be a catapult and something I should continue with. She told me not to think about it and just to write.  Hence, this blog post!

Recently, I haven’t been blogging as much because I’ve found a lot of my writing to be really personal lately and I’ve been writing more for me than for public viewing.  I miss blogging and sharing my ramblings with whoever may want to read them though.  I guess you could say I’m egotistical in that way. Good or bad, I want people to read/hear what I have to say. I think this will be something that will come up again and is an important part of who I am.

So there it is folks.  I hope I’ve done the experience justice and explained it semi-accurately.  There is a lot more to it (it almost seemed scientific to me in a way, it’s kinda like your horoscope times a million…or something…) and whether you’re a skeptic or not, it’s something worth reading about and exploring (in my opinion!).  If anyone is interested in getting a reading or just learning more, click here!
