Chapter One

Getting Started

Masked by the snowflakes,
The colour of your petals
May well be hidden:
Yet still put forth your scent
That people may know your flower.


-- Ono Takamura

Each of us dreams of reaching a point at which we finally "have it all together." Often we assume that today "doesn't really count." It's just another day. But this day is an entire and beautiful gift, full of physical sensations, a range of emotional responses, and information about who we are and why we are here -- if we choose to become conscious of what this day brings. Each day has its own purpose and fits into the great plan of our life. This very moment carries traces of our life purpose in places where we focus our attention, in words or ideas that bring a tingle of excitement and hope in our heart.

Your life purpose was chosen before birth. This inborn organizing force silently attracts people and information directly related to what you need to know in order to make immediate choices. Someone may recommend a book, a teacher, a job opportunity, or a blind date. You may take a wrong turn and wind up at the right place. This workbook is designed to help you awaken to the natural guidance of your intuition and to stay in the flow of effortless synchronicity. Let's start by getting into the feel of what you want.

What are you looking for?

Close your eyes and remember a time when you felt fully alive and so engrossed in something that you lost track of the time. Try to reexperience this scene of success and self-confidence. How did you feel? How would you describe yourfeelings at the peak of being yourself, on your path, on purpose?

Others describe their feelings of being on purpose as follows:

  • Work feels effortless.
  • Everything flows.
  • I can handle anything.
  • I'm in tune.
  • Money flows in.
  • Synchronicities abound.
  • I'm totally absorbed.
  • I'm doing service.
  • It's fun.
  • I feel resourceful.
  • I feel a passion for the work.
  • I feel motivated.
  • I have more courage.
  • I'm energized.
  • I'm excited.

These states of being are all proof that you have already been able to connect to something you value, something that is part of your purpose. If you can truthfully say that you have never had any of these feelings, perhaps you can close your eyes and bring those desired states fully into your being by playfully pretending to feel the joy of being on track. When you experience any of these feeling states, you are on track and on purpose.

To help you describe and define this deep inner yearning to find your place in the world, to live your purpose, take a moment to answer the following questions as best you can. Don't struggle or strain to come up with any fancy words. Just write out what is in your heart at this moment.

  1. What is so important to you that you bought this book to work on finding your life purpose?
  2. What are you looking for?
  3. What do you want?
  4. What would make you happy?
  5. What stops you from having it?
  6. How do you want to feel?
  7. What have you been passionate about in the past?
  8. If you could have anything you want, what would that be?
  9. What aspects of your life or career are you truly committed to?
  10. What would make a difference in the quality of your life?
  11. If you had the thing that would make a difference in the quality of your life, what would that give you?
  12. What would you like to change in the world?
  13. What would it take for you to be living in total integrity?

Transfer your answers to questions 1, 2, 4, 6, 11, and 13 to the profile sheet, pages 223-224.

Points to Remember When Getting Started



Stay open and express gratitude for what you already have.

  • Today is a new day. No matter what has gone before, today is a completely new gift from God for you to enjoy.
  • Anything might happen today. Anything is possible.
  • You are always at the beginning.
  • You always have options.

If you don't know where to start

  • Start anywhere. Start wherever you are. Take small steps in the direction you want to go. When you procrastinate, especially when you know what the next step should be, you drain your energy. Starting anywhere means you can begin to be on purpose by cleaning out your garage, taking your child to the park, or inviting friends over to brainstorm a community project. When you put your heart and mind together to do the best you can in any situation, you are working from a sense of purpose, which will lead you to being more fully expressed.
  • Take one small step. Then take another.
  • Watch to see what happens next. Do you get a go or a no from life? Do any coincidences suggest new options?
  • What does your intuition or gut suggest?
  • Remember that there is a reason for everything.
  • Stay in the moment. The present moment contains clues, messages, and opportunities.
  • Ask yourself: What is my conscious excuse or reason for stalling? What do I gain from stalling? What is the fear underneath the excuse or reason?

    Human potential with heart

    This book will give you many tools and refreshing insights into what will bring you to the heart - and soul - of your life's purpose. Adrienne engages readers in a thoroughly inspirational and intelligent manner. Her insights and perspectives are drawn from a deep personal well of diverse experiences that are both practical and spiritually-inspired. More importantly, her material fulfills the promise held in the book's title. Anyone wishing to find their direction, 'raison d'etre,' or motivation for bouncing around this planet will enjoy and benefit from this book. Hint: share this material with the people you love, particularly your children, so they can 'get some purpose with heart' too. The bonus of this book is that readers will discover that engaging in and living with purpose is not a destination or event that will happen 'someday.' You will be able to feel energized in your now, and encouraged by your own process of continual unfoldment, whatever it is, however long and where ever it takes you. May you find your purpose too...
