What Does Life Want From YOU?

If you are a fan of the Law of Attraction like me, you’ve probably spent a lot of time thinking about what you want from life. Today, though, I’d love for you to ask a different question: what does LIFE want from YOU?

Now first off, when it comes to this question, please note that I am not asking you the following questions:

  1. What does your mother/father want from you?
  2. What do your friends want from you?
  3. What does society want from you?

I am asking a much more important question…

What does LIFE want from YOU?

The reason why I love contemplating this question is simple. It cuts through the BS, real quick.

After all, how many times have we wanted life to give us something, only to realize down the road that the desire we had was routed in our ego, not in our soul?

For instance, perhaps you did everything you could to get back with an ex who only treated you like garbage. You got what you wanted but it was a hollow victory. Instead of a loving relationship you found yourself stuck in abuse.

Or perhaps you did everything you could to get that job you thought you were “supposed” to have. You got what you wanted, but found out after years of hard work and sacrifice that it wasn’t a position that fulfilled you or made you happy.

This is why asking yourself what life wants from you can be so tremendously powerful.

After all, if you could ask your life what it wants from you, what do you think it would say?

I don’t know about you, but these are the answers that came to me when I asked the question:

My life wants me to be:

  1. Happy
  2. Healthy
  3. Inspired
  4. Loving
  5. Kind
  6. Compassionate

And once I figured out what my life wanted from me, it made things a whole lot clearer. How I attacked my goals and dreams transformed dramatically.

Instead of reaching for hollow victories, I started reaching for things I truly believed would help me meet those objectives.

I stopped competing for the kinds of treasures and signs I thought I was “supposed” to have. Instead, I started qualifying my desires by what my life wanted from me.

Would that job really make me happy? Were those goals going to add to my health or detract from it? Was that objective going to encourage me to be kind or ruthless?

All of the sudden, it became clear what goals were in alignment with my highest life, and which ones weren’t.

So today, I encourage you to ask the same question. What does your life want from you?

Take the answers to this question seriously. When you align what you want with what life wants from you, you’ll move mountains. I promise.

This is in relation to a relationship where i have put all my faith. But how to understand whether i am following my the call of my soul or is it just my ego driving me. Kindly help

    Follow your feelings. If you feel good your soul is calling you. If you feel worried or stress, it is likely a pursuit of the ego <3

    Thank you for this thought.
    And I have a question related to it.
    Some time ago, I became interested in the past life regression. I read Michael Newton’s books about soul’s destiny and journey. In his books he describes what his clients, being in a deep hypnotic state, told him about their past lives and existence between Earth lives in various extraterrestrial spaces where they plan their next incarnations on Earth.
    Many of Newton’s clients say that past life regression sessions helped them a lot in realizing their life purpose, their lesson to be learned in this incarnation and in general, they totally changed their attitude towards life.
    Do you think the past life regression is worth doing to find one’s life purpose and lesson? Because, truth be told, those sessions are quite expensive. Do you think the life purpose can be discovered by some other means?

    Hi Andrii, I am of the belief that all of time is actually one big simultaneous NOW, and that all past lives and future lives are actually occurring simultaneously. A past life regression, in my opinion, would probably show you what kind of energetic level you are at NOW, as you will match up with lives that are of a similar vibration as to the one you are living currently.

    I feel life’s purpose really boils down to one thing: LOVE. Seek to love as much as you can, and things will work out for you quite naturally <3
