How Are You Living Your Life On Purpose?

November 2021 Blog | Intentional Living | Transformational Presence | Life on Purpose | Being Human 

Since my awakening, healing, and spiritual journey that started following my parents’ passing in my very young, fledgling adulthood, I discovered that the process of knowing and trusting one’s life purpose requires moving beyond the resistance into a willingness to explore the unknown and unfamiliar. This means creating an abundance of self-reflection, solitude, listening to others, paying attention to intuitive nudges, and acknowledging passions, talents, and what captures one’s attention. I realized that this kick-started my discovery of my purpose that would fuel my happiness and meaning in my life.

Where are you in your process of tapping into your life on purpose?

“What do you desire? What makes you itch?”

~ Alan Watts  (listen to his full talk on purpose)

As a seasoned transformational depth coach and deep systems change agent over three decades and thousands of private, group, and community client engagements, I know that happiness and meaningfulness overlap. Alone, happiness is linked to being on the receiving end, while meaningfulness is linked to being on the giving end of altruistic choices and behavior. When happiness and meaningfulness become fused, there is a great receiving and fulfillment that is derived from being altruistic and giving. In the giving there is impact and seeing another light up, expressing sincere gratitude and appreciation, is the ultimate gift in giving to others.

Discovering one’s purpose requires patience and trust in owning what lights us up. It takes courage to then forge the path to then weaving our purpose into how we show up in our lives. My purpose involves women empowering women. Humans Being Humanely Human and on purpose. Helping parents nurture their teens and young adult children into adulting in an uncertain world. Creating and leading wilderness transformational retreats in beautiful natural spaces. These are all the themes that pulse through, within, and from my heart. I have rediscovered and renewed my unwavering commitment to my core life purpose – assisting others who are ready to tap into their power, purpose, and most authentic potential expressed through being in presence, living on purpose, and in service.

Over these last few years of profound change and transformative infusions of energy, insight, and reflection, I have come to understand the difference to be “On Purpose”.

So what does it mean to live a life “On Purpose?”  The foundation of living this way of life is authenticity. My definition of authenticity means that I do not sell myself short of what I believe and know who I am to please someone and seek their approval. I say what it is there for me to say at that moment, or when I realize that it is there for me to speak with care, compassion, without becoming reactive, defensive, or blaming. 

In a late October five-day retreat led with my dear friend and colleague Michele Rae, we explored deep listening, witnessing another, and the power of authentic conversation. We practiced being and leaning into the “sacred standards of presence,” speaking truthfully and remaining firmly rooted in compassion and deep listening, on purpose even during more difficult conversations spurred by triggers or themes arising for healing. 

To be “On Purpose” means that each action taken or not taken was done or not done with meaning. Not just to check a box or gain praise from others. A life “On Purpose” truly means that each day I am connected to the realization that it could be my last.

When I become present to this I now possess the power to touch, move, and inspire individuals that I come in contact with through my authenticity and fully being with them. Throughout this year of personal expansion, I’m learning more about the power of liminal space—the importance of staying present and working with the “space in between” (then and the near now) or the “waiting time” between what once was and the emerging unknown, unclear future instead of fighting against it. I feel like I’m learning something more about the partnership of transformational presence, flow, and being while in action—sensing when it’s time to pause and observe, and when it’s time to move in the dance between nothing, formlessness, and everything. And sensing how essential it feels to remain incredibly present while in action toward what is clearly emerging as the New Human Era.

Transformation Through Spiritual Awakening Is About More Than Healing – It Is About Purposefully Evolving Into Your Best Self

Are you……

Experiencing a Spiritual Awakening? Ready to truly transform and reinvent your life to align with your Heart and Soul Call?

In my own experience, as well as assisting hundreds of other beautiful human beings through their spiritual awakening journey, I have learned that this process is one of unlearning, unraveling, reimagining, and allowing a newly expanded and refined way of authentically being human. Since we are multidimensional, energetic beings with a mind, body, spirit, and soul, it is important to access support in these key aspects of the transformational journey in spiritual awakening.

1. Tap into your soul and listen to your inner guidance. The awakening process fosters presence, mindfulness, and intuitive insight. 

2. Detach from the grip of judgment and comparison as you relearn to trust your instinct and higher intuitive mind so that you can allow your conscious mind to know that it is safe to give up control and come along for the adventure. Release roles of being a victim, supported through the healing process. 

3. Allow your body to move in the direction your soul is guiding you. Transformation through Spiritual Awakening fosters a re-embodiment of the energetic body, meaning that our body also holds intelligence, insight, and deeper wisdom. Being centered and grounded in our physical bodies helps us become congruent and aligned  in the human experience of our “3-Part Being” (body, mind, soul/spirit)

Spiritual Awakening – Speak and Live from Your Soul

When I look at the times in my life when I’ve transformed through my life experiences, they came through a spiritual awakening process. Some of these events were painful and turbulent, others moved with grace, quickness, and ease. The ones that were more challenging occurred early in my life when the unraveling, unwinding began, and my primary focus was healing my energetic, physical, mental, and emotional bodies.

Tools and Resources to Assist You in Your Transformational Spiritual Awakening

Seek Support

There is no “right or wrong way” to experience your spiritual awakening events, which are often triggered by a major life event, loss, or jarring life experience. The key is recognizing what may be happening and seeking support with a qualified coach and spiritual guide who can assist you in navigating the process.

Immerse in Nature

Everything in Nature is energetic consciousness with a very high frequency. The ecosystem of Nature innately “knows” that everything is interconnected, and we humans are energetically connected to all of creation. The elements of earth are the elements of creation – earth, water, fire, air, and aether- and the seven directions – north, south, east, west, above, below, and within…, are all unified in an interconnected whole. Mother Earth holds a very high vibration for your spiritual awakening. Every day I invest around an hour or more per day in nature. I may do a quick nature walk or go outside of my home and marvel at the incredible gifts of the earth and cosmos.

Read about Spirituality

I love to read and study spiritual books. Mostly channeled books bring me the most joy to read and awaken my soul. Go to a new or used book seller and review the books in the spirituality and philosophy sections. Let your intuition guide you as you browse. Or, ask a coach for some books to consider. One of my all-time favorite books that supported me throughout the years has been The Seat of the Soul original and updated editions, by Gary Zukav. Neale Donald Walsch’s channeled books and audios teach that we are the wisdom, love and truth that any moment will ever need to be healed and to participate in the evolution of the human species. 

I believe that there is a high vibrational 5th, 6th, or even 7th-dimensional energy story in the words of channeled books that can unlock the wisdom within ourselves. If you love to read, then a book may best resonate with your learning style. If you prefer to listen, you can always choose to listen to an audio book instead.

Explore Music and Healing Sound

Spiritual beings are soulful beings. When we become spiritually awakened we evolve to acknowledge and embrace the existence of our consciousness. Music speaks to the consciousness and thoughtfully selected music carries an energetic frequency that seems to begin where words leave off. Soulful songs, to name only a few, include Imagine by John Lennon, In My Secret Life by Leonard Cohen, They Don’t Care About Us by Michael Jackson and Greatest Love of All by Whitney Houston. Spiritual Meditation Music, Reiki Music, Solfeggio music, and sound healing music found on YouTube or Spotify, are wonderful resources for music. The one thing about music, according to Bob Marley, is that “when the music hits you, the pain goes away,” or it brings the emotion to the surface through tears so that healing occurs.

Expand Consciousness through Movies

Movies are a projection of a world that we choose to indulge in for a specified amount of time, offering the possibility of shifting our perception of space and time, and for a period of time, consider and reflect on the message and content being presented to us. Certain movies can satisfy our yearning and hunger for a deeper understanding, insight, and some form of truth. A movie, when seen through the eyes of a spiritually awakened person can be perceived as a spiritually awakening one. Some movies offer access to Universal truth that may provide an answer to a specific question. A few of my suggested favorites include Ghost, Origins, The Whale Rider, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Before Sunrise, Midnight in Paris, and the documentary Heal. These are only a few.

Discover the Power of Crystals

Crystals help us clear stuck energies and me to raise our energetic vibration, or frequency,  that helps us reach new levels of conscious awareness. They are also powerful for clearing blocks or negative energy.

Join and Engage in Community

Belonging to a community with like-minded, open-hearted people sharing a spiritual path can be a wonderful support when the time feels right. Being Human Life offers a variety of ways to connect with a loving, caring, and supportive community, virtually and live.

Are you a Coach, a Catalyst for Healing, Transformation and Personal Human Development?

This month’s blog focuses on sharing 13 Life Lessons I have learned over 3 decades serving others as a dedicated Soul, Life, Purpose  & Leadership Coach and Metaphysical Empowerment Catalyst

I entered the coaching industry in it’s fledgling decade of the 1990s. To be exact, I completed two intensive years of residential spiritual and transpersonal coaching training and launched my coaching business in 1995. I soon went on to complete a master’s degree in self-generative human resiliency and development and advanced doctorate-level studies in energetic and metaphysical healing, hypnotherapy, neuro-linguistic programming, yoga therapy, and disciplines in meditation. I have always embraced continuous inner growth, self-knowledge, connecting to the Divinity of Inner Knowing. Even in my high school, college, and corporate career years, I knew that I was placed on earth for a “different” purpose that would entail a “path less traveled.” I often refer to this as a path of nonconformity. Sound/Look/Feel familiar?

I can hardly believe I have been in the deep neuro-transformational and leadership coaching field for three decades. I am dating myself to share that I was among the first of a handful of coaches to complete the first 8 month coaching institute training and International ICF certification representing the state of Minnesota. 

The personal professional coaching field has evolved from a poorly understood career choice to an accelerating and increasingly standardized and recognized profession. What began as educated professionals from a variety of industries branching out to help others improve their quality of life and work is now a well-known branch of the human development and personal growth/mental health field. The field of professional coaching is now well established, and a continuously evolving three-decades-old discipline that is focused on evidence-based techniques, methodologies, and standardizing credentials needed to practice as a fully competent and skillful coach and catalyst for deep change and self-empowered, purposefully conscious living.

Nina Roberts Salveson is a Soul Coach, Reiki Master Teacher, Inner Transformation and Ayurveda-Yoga Meditation Teacher for living boldly embodied. Nina is also an outdoor sacred space artist, writer, and educator based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and the Florida Keys. Nina’s coaching, teaching, and guidance introduce compassion, new perspectives on love, and uses intuition, lightness and pathos to explore the inner radiance and brilliance of the Divinely Embodied Soul while Being Human.

13 Life Lessons I have Learned over 25 years as a dedicated Soul Life & Leadership Coach
  1. Deliver quality service as a way of BEING. It’s all about how you show up. ALL that precedes you and also surrounds your service: how you articulate your service, the “sacred container” you create and hold for your service, your attitude, your consciousness, and capacity to hold it all in a space of faith, love, compassion, and knowing that this work – your service – all of this IS your Soul Mission during this life experience. 
  2. Keep moving forward, whether you feel like it or not. Those who do ONE thing a day to move their work, further along, make things happen. Take pictures of everything that inspires you. Live an inspired life. Take one small step every day. 
  3. Reach out to others. Make new friends. Acknowledge their service. Celebrate them. 
  4. Being a catalyst of personal development and Inner-empowerment may be your soul mission. And don’t forget this is also a solopreneurial business.
  5. Understand that “your service is your work is your art.” Just as art is subjective and an individual might not resonate with your kind of service – your art –  isn’t important. It is not rejection or judgment of you or your work, your art, or your service. It doesn’t mean that everyone feels that way. There are billions of humans on the planet, and the perfectly abundant number of humans who desire what you are here to provide, in loving service, are waiting for you. 
  6. See the big picture. Understand what problem you solve, focus and hone in on where your art, your craft, and your service fits in the sphere of awakened, personal growth, inner transformation field of coaching, teaching, and experiential development. Own it. 
  7. You and your world, the way you think, perceive, and the things that interest and enliven you are the most unique subjects you can bring to serving another. Share your story. 
  8. Thank everyone you can think of. Know that it’s not all about you.  Be grateful and generous. Genuine goodwill and gratitude go a long way. 
  9. Continuously witness and observe: Are you embracing the skills that connect you, foster connection, and change lives? Are you operating from your conditioned self or your holy, higher self?
  10. Embody your feminine traits like compassion, curiosity, and collaboration to make an impact in your family, organizations, our communities, and the world. Shift from the masculine to a balance with the feminine. Shifting from command and control to collaboration. From forcing to allowing. From blaming to questioning. From criticizing to developing. From judgment to love. From talking to listening. From telling to appreciative inquiry and questions. 
  11. Know what energizes you and what drains you. Pursue what gives you energy and meaning.
  12. Embrace your Inner Feminine Leader; fostering diversity, equity, belonging, and inclusion. It is safe to make mistakes, ask for help, and learn new skills. 
  13. In a propaganda-media-driven cancel-culture that is attempting to further condition people to be afraid to be themselves, we need more of us to collectively speak up for truth and alternative ways of seeing, perceiving, and being human. Be informed, know where you stand, and take a stand for that. 

Being Human means being real, daring to be vulnerable, and courageous. Sure, we make mistakes as we learn and grow and model the way for others. This is the essence of BEING HUMAN. Being bold enough to be yourself, and in doing so, paving the path for others to step into their boldness. Creating a ripple effect of strong, capable, compassionate Humans. This IS the new human era.
