Purpose. It’s such a loaded word.
So I loved getting the chance to sit down with the gritty and impactful Brandon Handley of Spiritual Dope Podcast to dig into the underbelly of purpose work.
The truth is most of us talk about purpose like it’s aspirational and achievable. Like “My purpose is to be a writer” or “My purpose is to speak on stages” or “My purpose is to get married.”
And that’s awesome. But, if you can achieve something, that means you can also fail it. And that doesn’t make sense.
How can you fail your purpose?
And did you just not have a purpose as a baby?
Conditional ideas of purpose create shame. And they keep purpose and spirituality only accessible to “some people.”
And they never take into account when we need purpose the most — with our trauma.
But the cool thing is our lived experience tells who we are over and over again. We just have to map our experiences.
Check out this interview above. It’s a fun one because we get to dig in, break down some toxic myths we see perpetuated about spirituality and purpose, and even demo discovering your purpose live.
Pop on over and let me know what you think.
