That’s something Oprah Winfrey has become famous for saying, the premise and basis of her “SuperSoul Conversations” podcast.
And... it’s SO TRUE. I was listening to a tarot reader on YouTube (Simone Ascending) and she said that before we chose to have this human-experience, we were a little seedling of consciousness with a specific purpose or mission.
Then, we volunteered to have a human experience and actualize that purpose or mission in our external reality.
Most of us spend our lives trying to figure out what that purpose or mission is. I’d say we are all born with that deep knowing coming from an intuitive voice or “inner guru,” but most of us are conditioned to ignore it.
One way we could be conditioned to ignore it is through societal standards, familiar chords/pressure or attachments to material objects.
And so we spend our lifetime trying to figure it all out. We go to school and study various subjects, we work various jobs. And what happens is when we chose something that’s not a part of our plan, the universe throws us obstacles or challenges to bring us in alignment with what our true calling is.
THAT’S why every “curse” is really a blessing. THAT’S why people say “everything happens for a reason.” Because, in reality it does.
So when you’re feeling out of place, when you’re struggling finding your purpose, when you’re feeling like you’re at a dead-end, when the door is locked and you keep trying to open it — pause. Realize that if the universe didn’t need you you wouldn’t be here. Then, try another door.
Watch what happens.

I had such an amazing time at my first Alpha Women Impact Event on Thursday night.
A huge THANK YOU to my friend Nafiska for inviting me to come with her, Iva Velkosvska for setting up a beautiful, welcoming and intimate space for soul conversation and connection; Shira kane for reminding us that “inclusivity” is more than just a buzz-word and Rebecca Boatman for making us dive deep on what it is we want in a romantic partner/partnership, and what obstacles we place in our way to attracting them.
My Takeaways from Iva:
My Takeaways from Shira:
Throughout my two and a half years of going to college on Long Island I struggled a lot with being exposed to a lot of different political viewpoints. I was raised in a majority white neighborhood, but racism was sparse. In general, my neighborhood was made of mostly upper middle class white people who loved L.L.Bean moccasins, Dave Matthews Band & Bernie Sanders.
When I moved to Long Island I was exposed to racism and prejudice for the first time. Of course, not everyone on Long Island is racist. But did you know that the area where dejure segregation is most prominent in the U.S. is Nassau County?
I attended several political rallies during my time on Long Island in the city as a student journalist. I really struggled with understanding where I fit into the landscape. I was actually kicked out of a party for writing an article saying Black Lives Matter.
And something that really confused me then, and still does, is the reluctance of some individuals to simply just sit and listen to one another and what they have to say.
As a student reporter at the time I felt I had built a pretty solid reputation just from listening to people without interruption. At first it was hard to listen to the opinions or beliefs of others which differed so greatly from mine, but I realized later on that it was essential for me to develop my own belief systems and know how to communicate them with those around me in a respectful way.
So, if we stand up and show up for marginalized groups — while also listening to those who disagree with us — and also listening to those who have been hurt by our words and actions — MAYBE we can create a more harmonious world. Can’t hurt to try, right?
