If you spend time on social media at the moment, you might begin to think that calling is all dancing and joy and money: “Hi! Look at me! I’m doing my calling and it’s so fantastic! Yay!”
I won’t ever say that to you.
Because following your calling is not only fun and games. It is fierce.
Your calling is the precious decision that you made to arrive on this planet. It gives meaning to why you are here—that’s why you long for it so much.
Calling is an unmitigated willingness to be honest with yourself.
Calling is not something you do—it’s something you be.
(You actually come into form and power through being and giving of yourself in this way.)
Calling is something you wrestle with.
Sometimes it’s foggy and you’re lost in darkness.
Sometimes it asks you to walk deep into the dark night.
Calling is unrelenting.
At times it feels impossible to keep going, you question it. You question yourself.
Don’t judge yourself so much that you don’t go or cannot go or refuse to go where calling asks you to enter. Instead linger by this door you are called to. Because it’s inside there that you find the bones of who you are.
Hang outside that door and get used to being there. Peek inside.
Keep putting one uncertain foot in front of the other because the one thing you can be sure of is this is why you’re here. If you didn’t have this knowing, you wouldn’t go on.
In the fire of calling, you get to completely surrender everything that’s unaligned with who you are. And in doing so, you become an even clearer vehicle for that calling to shine through.
So how do you know what your calling is?
For me, my calling began to arise through the spiritual gifts that started emerging in my early twenties. These gifts whispered to me that I was here to offer healing, even though at 20 years old in the early 1990’s I had no idea how to do that or what it meant. I just knew in all my being it was true. And I trusted it. I trusted that it would lead me and I would find my way.
Calling is never a direction from your ego. Nor is it about doing things to get money only. Money is important and may come as a result of following your calling. Many of us seek this, and I have too. And I support many folks who realise this dream. Sometimes we earn money in a role and live our calling out as the way we walk our work life, it shines through. Or your calling may not be related to money at all.
This is partly why there is so much soul crisis—people doing things only to get money—rather than letting money show up also as a result of and with calling. (Trying the money-only path can be important at times, I have walked it too. I am grateful for it and there are times when it is essential and it also funds our calling and our life. But when there is a big calling singing in your bones then the money-only path can over a long time lead to people feeling angry, unhappy, lost, dissatisfied, and scared.)
Calling feels true. For me, it feels like beauty inside me.
It feels like the only thing I want to listen to.
You pay attention to where you are being pulled.
Calling is the direction of your soul.
That’s why it pulls you. And when it pulls it feels beautiful, even if where it’s pulling you is difficult or hard.
