It is all too common that sometime in a person's forties they undergo what is popularly termed a “mid-life” crisis. Either this is because they suddenly realise life is passing them by and they have not met the goals they aspired to in their twenties, or alternatively the person may have been “successful” in obtaining their goals, yet somehow their life is still devoid of meaning and they have a gnawing emptiness inside. Why? Because they have not been listening to their soul’s needs, probably not since childhood.

This exercise is designed to stimulate you to listen to the inner voice of your soul and to start taking heed of its messages. It is never too late to adjust your life, either marginally or radically, to be in alignment with the needs of your soul as expressed through your heart. Notice the “ah ha!” light bulbs going on inside your head as you do this exercise and feel your heart expanding into joy as you awaken to the true essential you and your life’s purpose.
