Make a list and draw a few pictures to represent the answers to these questions. The list accesses your left brain. The pictures gain access to your creative and intuitive right brain. Both are important to your knowing. Your purpose, the reason you are here now comes from deep within you. When you are moving forward in the right direction, you might notice that as a feeling. A sense that this is right. Or you might see cues along the way, a coincidence, an unexpected gift of some kind that affirms your choice. It might just be something that resonates within you that tells you this is the path to choose.
The decision doesn't have to be a big one. You don't have to know how it will all work out. You simply have to take another step in the direction that your purpose leads. You simply have to focus on how to best use that talent, to apply that lesson from your challenges, to give to the world the blessing that you are.
The first time that I knew that I was on my right path, I was still a child. I had been very worried about a classmate who was injured at a game in school. From my child's mind I could only do what I had been taught to do when I was worried. I prayed. I prayed very hard and I prayed for a long time. A short while later I was out walking in the woods. I came across a steep wooded hillside that was covered in beautiful Virginia Bluebells. All in bloom. I had never experienced this before. I understood at that moment that this vision of wild flowers and the beauty they contained was an affirmation that my prayers were heard. Not coincidence but gift. A moment that had meaning for me from my child knowing and my expereinces of the world. That field of bluebells might have spoken a different message to someone else, but to me they were the reassuring voice of God.
