What is my role and why am I here? Many people often wonder what role they should be playing during this spiritual awakening while others ponder their purpose during their present incarnation.
Before you incarnated here
Before you decided to incarnate here, you were connected to Source. While you were on the other side, you made thousands of soul contracts. Actually, you wanted millions of them because they all seemed attainable on the other side but as we have found out, this incarnation gives us enough challenges to overcome!
Your soul contract
Some of the things we agreed upon before incarnating include who are parents or guardians are, what type of socioeconomic situation we will be born into and what energy signature we will have by being born into the zodiac sign we all have.
Each one of these zodiac signs contains a specific energy. Your personal energy is as unique as a snowflake. In order for someone to have the same exact energy signature as you, they would have to be born at the exact same time in the exact same geographical region as you. The next opportunity for this to occur won’t happen for another 4.1 million years and for that to occur, they would also need to be born in the same exact geographical region and at the same time as YOU.
Like the humorous saying goes, “You are unique, just like everybody else.” Yet, the truth is found within the humor. It is true that you are unique, but you are also part of the mass consciousness that ties us all together.
So, what is my role?
Everything you have done in this incarnation has been part of your role and that includes every hardship, pain and ache, as well as every moment of happiness and bliss.
Every choice you have made in life had led you to where you are now and if you are reading this article, then chances are, you’re already playing your role.
Some people are unsure of what their role entails. They have a feeling like they are supposed to be doing something specific, yet they are unsure of what that role might be.
You might be comparing yourself to other people’s achievements and perhaps feel like you are not doing enough. Let me assure you that we’re ALL playing a huge role in this awakening and while some roles are larger than others, NO ROLE is any less important!
Here’s an example.
Our In5D YouTube channel has thousands of subscribers and the videos have been viewed millions of times. While it’s great that so many people have connected to these videos, this is no larger of an accomplishment than the person who has a handful of subscribers and his (or her) videos have only been viewed a dozen times. Perhaps, out of those dozen views, you changed the life of someone who was suicidal? Perhaps you helped to facilitate the spiritual journey of someone by encouraging them to think outside the box?
In turn, these people tell other people about their experiences, while the other people tell even more people about these experiences. So, while the video only has a dozen views, you could literally be helping thousands upon thousands of people!
My best advice is to look inward for the answer because only YOU know all of the soul contracts that you made before incarnating to this planet. Also, try not to over-think this too much because there’s a good chance you are already playing the exact role you agreed to play, even though you feel like there is more to do.
How can I make a difference right now?
Meditate. Through meditation, you can tap into the grid of global consciousness by sending out positive thoughts and energies to the world.
How can I make a difference this week or month?
Every day, you have the opportunity to send out positive thoughts and intentions to the world. Here is a simple way to do this: Similar to meditation, envision a bright white light emanating from the center of your body. While doing this, (in your mind) silently tell people, “I love you”. You can do this at the grocery store, riding the bus or at any other social situation that you find yourself in.
What is my purpose in life?
Many people are curious about why they decided to incarnate here at this particular point in time. Some people are here simply to share their inner light with others while helping to unlock the planet’s grid. Others are unknowingly empaths who absorb the negative energies of other people and are playing a huge role in the shift of consciousness. Some people simply came here to learn how to cook or to be a carpenter, while others wanted to be part of the Earth’s graduation.
For many people, they are receiving cues from their spirit guides and guardian angels every day through synchronicities, such as 11:11, 1:11, 1:23, 4:44, etc… Whenever these numbers start coming into your life, be aware of what you’re thinking about or what is on your mind when these synchronicites occur because chances are, they are guiding you towards your life purpose.
Once again, only YOU know what is on your soul contract. Look at the direction your life has taken you and try to use those experiences to figure out your life’s purpose. Everything you have experienced has led you to where you are now. These experiences are not coincidental, as they are constantly guiding you toward your life’s purpose.
Don’t be afraid to ask a close friend what their opinion might be. Sometimes, the answer might be more obvious to other people than it is to ourselves. The bottom line is to use your discernment when asking other people, because ultimately, the answer was always within you.
Also, look at the relationships in your life to see where they are leading you. For me, I’ve always had an attraction to nurses and healers. My daughter’s mother is a surgical technician who also reads tarot cards on a daily basis and performs Quantum Touch healing. My 2nd wife was (and still is) a charge nurse who has the ability to see things in the future but suppresses this ability because it sometimes scares her. I seem to be attracted to nurses who were most likely healers in their previous lives but I also seem to gravitate towards women who have innate abilities that many other people don’t possess or at the least, are unaware of these abilities.
These relationships helped to guide me in building in5d.com. Specifically, in 2007, my first wife asked me if I was interested in watching the trailer to “The Secret” when I went to her house to pick up my daughter. After watching it, I went home and ordered the DVD. Upon watching the DVD, I asked the universe for ideas and direction and from that point forwards, I was flooded with ideas, not just for myself, but for other people as well. One of these ideas was to create in5d.
in5d exists because of the relationship I had with my daughter’s mother. Even though we had a failed marriage, I have a beautiful daughter and found my life’s purpose and for that, I am eternally grateful for being in that relationship.
What have your relationships been like?
What types of people have you gravitated to and how are these people leading you in a specific direction?
What will your life review look like?
As evidenced by many people who had a near death experience (NDE), when you cross over to the other side, you will perform a life review where you relive your life in a panoramic 360 degree view of everything that happened in your life. Then, you see your life through the eyes of everyone you have touched, through their perspective.
For some people, their life review will show them going to work, coming home and sitting in front of a television in their recliner with a remote control in their hands.
Is this why we decided to incarnate here?
Did we come here to become economic slaves during the day and hypnotized zombies at night?
Is this how we want to see ourselves in our life reviews?
Your goal in life is NOT to be happy
I made a video called, “Your goal in life is NOT to be happy”. Happiness is an emotion, not a goal. Your goal is to experience as many things in life as possible that help to enrich your spirit. Some of these things might bring sorrow and pain which allows you to grow spiritually by learning from these experiences, but it is within these vast life experiences that you will also find happiness. Additionally, you’ll fondly look back at your current incarnation during your life review and will see how fulfilled you were in the time that you were here.
We were alive before we incarnated here
Santos Bonacci stated that once the sperm fertilizes the egg, we begin dying. We were alive before that moment in time. This is the beginning of our soul contract because at this point, we already know the energy signature that we will be born into.
By the time we are born, we have forgotten our life’s role and purpose, but we also begin to fulfill our soul contracts by choosing our parents and life’s situations that we want to achieve. From this point forward, we are simply putting the pieces of the forgotten puzzle together.
It will come to you
Your time here on Earth is precious. You chose to be here. You have a mission, a role and a life purpose and it doesn’t involve religion or watching TV. It might be as simple as “just being you” or it could be as complex as living up to the daily expectations of a personality such as Deepak Chopra. In either case, it is no less important than the other. You are perfect EXACTLY the way you are and you are heading in the direction you’re supposed to be going.
If you are not sure of what your role or purpose is yet, don’t worry too much about it. It will come to you when the time is right. Please know that you are ALWAYS being guided toward your life role or purpose EVERY DAY!
