Why You Are Here

“Why am I here?”

That is a very, very good question, beloved. There is a reason why every one of you asks this question of Me, regardless of age, geographic location, language or ethnicity. This question is at the very core of human experience.

“Why am I here?”

The good news is that there is an answer. Definitely. I would never give you a question that didn’t have an answer. That would be cruel.

However, this message is not the appropriate channel for the answer, because the answer is as unique as you are. There is no one-size-fits-all answer to that question. I tailor each answer to fit each one of you perfectly.

I will, however, explain the question further, so that you understand how to use it to enrich your life. And I will tell you how and where to find the answer.

“Why am I here?”

Many of you ask this question when you feel lost, and at your lowest point. You ask the question when what you are doing with your life isn’t aligned with your heart’s deepest desires. You ask the question when you are seeking direction.

That’s why I created the question: to help you align your actions with your heart’s deepest desires.

Now, I answer any question as soon as you ask (actually, before. More on that in a moment). If you don’t hear my response, it’s probably because one or more of the following obstacles gets in the way:

A: You don’t really expect Me to answer you.

B: You want Me to validate your current behavior.

C: You don’t want to think too hard about the choices you’ve made.

D: You’re unwilling to give up whatever it is that’s not working.

E: You’re unwilling or afraid to tune into your heart’s deepest desires.

Depending on your commitment to them, any or all of these obstacles can keep you wound up in knots and crying out to Me in anguish. But here’s The Truth (pay attention to your heart as you read this):


Each of you has been given a gift. You have also been given everything you need to bring that gift forward. I will discuss how to recognize your gifts in a moment, for your gift is crucial to living out your purpose. For now, let’s stick to your question: “Why am I here?”

As noted, you ask that question when you are seeking direction in life. That should be your first clue that the question itself is not merely a question; IT IS A COMPASS.

So, here is a step-by-step guide on how to use that question.

  1. Ask the question. Doing so out loud is fine, and may help clear your thinking.
  2. Listen to your heart. That is where you will hear My Voice. Use the method described above in “How To Experience My Presence” to do so. This will take practice, but is there a more worthwhile pursuit than getting in touch with your life’s purpose?
  3. Tune into your heart’s deepest desires. Tip: Your heart’s deepest desires are intangible and have nothing to do with acquiring anything in the material world. In fact, if you are truly tuned in, you will be more concerned with what you can give to others than what you receive. If you find yourself fantasizing over a car, a house, another person, etc., DIG DEEPER. The feelings you have attached to those things are what you crave.
  4. Observe where you are. Without judgment, regret or remorse, without arrogance or pride, simply ask yourself what actions are out of line with your heart’s deepest desires. You will want to listen to your heart here, as well.
  5. Adjust course. Your heart will tell you what actions to take. They may be small actions. They may be drastic. But the principle is to move in the direction of your purpose. As you do so, I will be with you every step, reminding you and encouraging you on your journey toward the fulfillment of the divine work you and I are doing together.

Did you get that last sentence? You and I are working together on something divine and holy. The concept might seem overwhelming to you now, but that’s only because you have a very limited idea of who you are and what you are capable of.

But I do not have that limitation. I made you, and I understand fully Who You Are and what you can do. So trust Me. And more importantly, listen to Me.

This is what is called walking in faith.
