Three steps to identify your Mission with Ho’oponopono

Why haven’t you ‘made it’ yet?

Why haven’t you figured it out?

You’re [insert your age here] years old! It’s too late! You can’t start over now! Why even bother?

If you have questions like these going around in your head it’s time to kick them to the kerb!

The fact is, it’s never too late to discover your mission and start living it!

The best time to go after your dreams is… right now!

Your life up to this point, no matter how it’s turned out, has prepared you for and brought you to this moment.

So grasp it!

Take control!

Don’t waste another minute wishing things were different.

It’s time to take 100% responsibility for your dreams and take a stand for them.

This is your time!

So let’s embrace it and investigate three ways you can start the journey towards aligned work that you love.

1. If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life – Marc Anthony

I’m sure you’re familiar with this quote.

But it does point to a great truth.

I’d like you to think about what you love to do.

… the things that make your heart sing when you do them and time just melts away…

… the activities that raise your spirit and satisfy your Soul…

All this is a CLUE, with flashing lights and a klaxon blaring away, of where your best opportunities for fulfilling work lie.

The work that will align with your mission in life.

The question is, do any of these activities connect or resonate with what you actually do for a living?

Make a list of all the things you love but only indulge in occasionally or on the weekends.

A good place to look for your passions are things you liked to do as a child, the favourite activities that lit you up.

Write it all down.

The purpose of this first step is merely to wet your appetite, to get the creative juices flowing.

Just indulge yourself.

This is your life.

So put aside the ‘coulds’ and ‘shoulds’ of the world. This is all about YOU.

Only you know what’s right for you no matter what your mother or your partner or your boss may say.

If you’re concerned about what others may think, remember that your thoughts about their thoughts are caused by a memory replaying in the subconscious.

Make the decision to clean up the nonsense so you can get back to focussing on the most important person in your life – you – with the key words of Ho’oponopono:

“I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.”

Dare to dream, dream BIG and put it all on the page.

2. Hit the restart button!

Keeping in mind all the activities you’ve just noted, think about what you would do if you had the opportunity to start over.

I’m offering you a clean slate here. A chance to live your life 100% on your terms.

This is not just the life that ‘could have been’… it’s the life you can start living TODAY if you’re willing to take action and commit to your dreams.

No need to try and please anyone except yourself.

So, what would you do differently?

What would you start doing?

What would you stop doing?

This is where you get to choose what work you would most like to do… how many days a week you would work… with whom… where in the world…

It’s all up to you.

Your power is all in the now. This very moment. You absolutely can start living your dream life immediately if you’re ready to commit to it!

If the gremlins start telling you it’s too late, that you’re not good enough, or whatever it is, remember:

A gremlin is just another thought about something, a memory replaying in your subconscious.

And because it’s just a memory replaying in your subconscious you can start cleaning on it right away with the key words of Ho’oponopono:

“I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.”

As ˋIhaleakalā would say, “thinking is hell!”. He’s right. Love your unhelpful thoughts to death so you can keep the focus on yourself and making progress.

3. Define your mission

Now you have all the ideas down on paper, it’s time to combine them and create a mission statement.

First, choose five verbs that resonate with your talents and feelings about your ideal work.

For example: empower, educate, write, manifest, improve.

Second, define who or what you can assist with your unique set of passions and skills.

For example: women entrepreneurs.

Third, identify their biggest challenge that you could help solve.

For example: struggling to charge what they’re worth.

Fourth, what is the end result or benefit you help them achieve?

For example: gain the confidence to raise their prices so they can charge higher rates with joy and integrity.

Finally, put it all together to create your mission statement.

In our example we could come up with this:

My mission is to empower, educate and improve the lives of women entrepreneurs so they can charge their full worth with confidence and integrity.

All we have to do now is ensure whatever we do is in harmony with that mission statement.

If your mission statement is 180o removed from your current work, there is nothing to fear.

Begin to feel what it would be like to live in full alignment with your statement and begin to clean on that with Ho’oponopono.

In addition, love your current work as best you can for bringing you to this moment and clean on that as well, any feelings of appreciation or even anger, whatever it may be, just let the feelings be there.

Nothing is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’.

Love the whole lot to death as you say:

“I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.”

Just clean, clean, clean.

And you will gradually notice that things start to change in your world.

Love the process. Acknowledge the ship turning around and clean on that.

Divinity will help you. All She needs is your willingness to do your bit – to take responsibility and Ho’oponopono!

Next Steps…

Now you have your mission identified, you can move forward confidently.

It will immediately become clear if what you’re doing, or about to do, is in alignment with your mission statement.

Even if you are in a completely different line of work to where you want to be, you now know what to focus on in terms of changing jobs or, better yet, building a business of your own that you love.

You can do it!

Let your mission statement be your guide and you can’t go wrong.

After all, we’ve been cleaning throughout the process so your statement is Divinely inspired.

You’re in very safe hands!

Just let me know how you get on!
