My goodness, she was obsessed with food! Julia really found
herself, and her calling, in a detailed and in depth
exploration of the principles and practices of French
cooking. She literally spent hours and days and years
researching thousands of recipes. Discovering the exact way
to beat an egg or whip cream – and how a particular method
affected the finished result.
And as you know she went on to pass all that detailed
knowledge onto a generation of home cooks after her. Took
her passion and used it to enrich and bless the lives of
While I quite enjoy cooking, and certainly love to eat, I
could never imagine putting that much energy into food. My
obsessions run on quite different lines.
Expanding into my spiritual potential for example. Exploring
the power of my thoughts to transform not only my life, but
positively affect the lives of other people. These are my
obsessions and they show up constantly in every part of my
And just like Julia, taking what I learn and passing it
onto others is my life work.
Your obsessions, the things that excite and interest you,
give important clues to your talents and gifts, and to your
purpose in life. When you put them to use in adding value
to the lives of others, you will find most satisfaction and joy
in your work.
So what are your obsessions? Take some time to do some
self exploration and write down the answers to these questions.
Ask your family and friends to help you – other people can
usually see us more clearly than we can see ourselves!
- What excites you?
- What do you really enjoy?
Where do you spend your time and money? (look around you
- What part of your life is organised?
- What do you always do, even when it is inconvenient?
- What do you find it easy to talk about?
- What do you learn easily?
- What do you never get tired of learning new things about?
Once you have some clues – take what you have discovered and
ask for guidance about how to put your gifts and talents to
use in the service of others. Not only is this the route to
fulfilling your purpose, it is your path to prosperity.
You came into this world a talented and powerful little
being, full of dreams and visions, and knowing that you are
here for some great purpose.
Do you still remember who you are and why you are here? Or
are you like most people? Have you forgotten?
Perhaps you have found that the connection to your inner
wisdom and power has been blocked somewhere along the course
Perhaps you are experiencing life as struggle instead of
the flow it is meant to be?
Perhaps you have forgotten your dream and settled for what
Perhaps you feel like you are in a rut?
Perhaps you think it is too late to change now?
I want to tell you that it is never too late to become who
you were born to be.
Your purpose doesn’t die – it is encoded into the very cells
of your being (literally) and is always knocking at the door
of your heart, asking for you to sit up and take notice.
The minute you do, your life will start to change.

nightmare that has lasted for many thousand years. We are

It doesn’t matter whether your role is ‘big’ or ‘little’.
What matters is your willingness to serve humanity.
If you recognise that your soul is calling you to be more,
do more, achieve more, than you currently are,
then say ‘yes’.
Say it out loud. Say it to the Universe/God/Creator/Source
(whatever word works for you)
Say ‘yes’– and watch for the signs that will follow.
The path will unfold – you don’t have to know what or how.
Just take that little first step of saying ‘yes’.
Your Soul is listening. It will lead you. I know. I’ve been
there. I still am. It’s an exciting journey we are on
