   Dear Readers,

Welcome to Stepping Into Transition, the newsletter designed to help you navigate your way through the challenges of change into an authentic and empowered life.

In my last issue, I outlined steps to develop intuition as a tool for practical decision making. In this issue, I'd like to take the concept of intuition further in showing how it can connect you to a sense of mission or purpose in your life.

  • Intuition And Life Purpose
  •   As I presented in last month's issue, some of the best ways to develop your intuition is by scheduling quiet time alone, and by noticing the energy patterns around your decisions as well as the activities and people in your life. Do these things lift you or deplete you? By choosing to consciously clear out distractions and energy drains you can create open space to connect with a greater vision of purpose and meaning in your life.

    With more calm and open space in your life, you can begin to pay attention to what you truly respond to with energy and enthusiasm. By further committing to take action upon what you are instinctively drawn to, new experiences and opportunities will come your way.

    You can then ask yourself, Is there an underlying connection between the people, events and circumstances that I am encountering? Where are these connections leading me? What is the wisdom I can draw from this?

    Following the energy and connections will naturally bring out your own unique talents and gifts. When you start to apply those talents and gifts to the needs of the world, your community, to others, you will gain clarity about your purpose. Purpose will ultimately be found when you match your deepest joys with what you can contribute to the world around you.

  • Focusing Question
  •   A powerful question can shift you into an intuitive and authentic direction. Here's a good one for you to use.

    "What are the influences, activities and people that cause me to shine?"

    Write the answer down someplace where you can see it and start taking action today. Trust that intuitive voice inside you and watch what happens.

    "To have a great purpose to work for, a purpose larger than ourselves, is one of the secrets of making life significant, for then the meaning and worth of the individual overflow his personal borders and survive his death."
