Work and Doing What Matters – The New Spiritual Frontier

You’re here for a reason. You’re here to do something. It’s time to step up into work that supports you and your purpose… even if you’re not so sure what that is; yet.

For years we’ve heard of the Lightworkers, the healers of all kinds whose work is to help create change. In many ways, they were on the cutting edge of the transformation we’re seeing today. It’s been their job to help usher in a new energy paradigm — to bring that to the masses.

Lately, though, the circle of those hearing the call to be the change is widening. There’s a huge shift happening that’s impacting every sector of our lives and our communities. And people are answering the call to change not by heading to the mountain to ascend to new spiritual heights, but by choosing to do work that matters.

Work is becoming the new spiritual frontier.

People everywhere are waking up to themselves and finding their voice and realizing that they need to express themselves through their work in bigger ways. They’re looking at how they can integrate who they are with what they do, to make a change.

I think if you are on a spiritual journey, your work is your biggest spiritual teacher these days. That job that doesn’t mean anything to you or is “just” what you do to make money will feel empty. It’s time for something more.

Yet when it comes to changing what you do and finding soulful work, it’s so easy to get stuck. You might doubt you can even have work in the world that feels important and also supports you. You might be at a loss as to what that is.

Heeding this call doesn’t mean everyone becomes a healer.  Change is needed everywhere – from the corporate sector to non-profits, to the healing arts and beyond. And so the new “Everyday Lightworkers” have a whole lot of options to step up and go big with their work.

However, this level of personal growth and claiming where to put one’s energy is creating a whole lot of confusion for many, who are ready to leap into something new with work.

Your new energy paradigm job search begins by searching within.

To manifest the work you love and are meant to be doing, you must begin with you. Not the ‘you” of now, but the “you” who you are growing into.

It’s not a dreamy state of mind fantasy of who you think you’ll be; you’ve got to know yourself as your empowered-self. You must first embody an awareness of the “you” who claims what you know and what you believe… right down to your bones.

That’s you, claiming your mission and your purpose and telling the universe you’re willing to show up to it.

Getting there means dismantling what you think you know and doing some transformational work.

Right now, you may feel so bogged down and burnt out by what you’ve been doing, that it’s as though you don’t have the energy to fire up any sense of passion for what’s next.

You might not be sure of what you want because in some way you’ve been taught not to wan. You’ve been taught to feel like you’re undeserving. So, you may be staring at this big blank canvas and not knowing what’s next.

If you’ve been burying your voice and your power, then you need to excavate that so you can own your mojo in a bigger way. Until you do, what you want to manifest will stay at arm’s length.

But when you take the time to do the inner work to transform what was, so you embody a much bigger vision of who you are, all of a sudden what you need to be that becomes clear.

It’s big work. You might need help to shift your awareness. But when you get there, you’ll begin to see a bigger picture of your life and your work. More choices to express you, as that, begin to reveal themselves.

Work as a spiritual journey.

What you do for work must be aligned with your spirit. I think that’s a truth for anyone on a spiritual path these days.

That means what you do needs to feed your spiritual growth. Aligned work lets you express your gifts and your knowledge. It lets you push into a bigger and better version of yourself over and over again.

If that’s not really happening for you right now, then your work is showing you where you’re out of sync with yourself.

How “work” might be manifesting itself in your life might be taking you on a journey to heal and transform so you leap into a version of yourself that knows what you want and that you can indeed do what you know you are here to do… in a way that feels integrated with your life and spirit.

That journey doesn’t end when you get that wonderful job or you find what you are here to do. It begins then!

Especially when you are in the work you are here to do, you’ll be pushed to grow… over and over because what you do will be intricately linked to who you are.

But that’s the journey.

Is it time for you to step on that path?

If you’re feeling the call to do work that matters, recognize that the change that is being ushered into your life is not “just” a change in job. It’s you up-leveling into a bigger version of yourself and positioning yourself to have a greater impact through what you do.

That’s Spirit work. And work is where you’ll get the chance to grow.
