Lesson 6 Your Personal Mission
Both Indigos (generally those born between 1975 and 1995, and who have great concern about social ills in the world) and indigo scouts (those born prior to 1975 who possess many Indigo characteristics, such as great sensitivity) have important life purposes.
As mentioned in lesson 3, you have both a personal mission and a global mission. Your personal mission is a lesson or lessons
that you’re learning during your lifetime. Examples are learning patience, forgiveness, generosity, balance, or tenacity.
One way to discover your personal mission is to look at patterns within your life. What situations do you continuously find yourself in? These situations are opportunities to learn the lesson of your personal mission. Every pattern contains hidden blessings and gifts, such as helping you to grow stronger, kinder, more self- aware, ect. Once you learn the lesson, the pattern will automatically and permanently leave. You’ve learned the lesson and so you won’t need to repeat it.
Patience– If your goals are manifesting much slower ( or not at all) you have an opportunity to learn about patience. Sometimes, our goals are thwarted because of impatience which causes us to try too hard, and to push and force things to happen. Once we surrender and let go, then our goal instantly manifest. “Infinite patience yield immediate results.”
Compassion– If you or loved one has a chronic health condition, this an opportunity to have compassion for those with physical challenges. Compassion mean feeling love and appreciation for the challenged person, which is different from pity – meaning feeling bad for the challenged person. Compassion empowers the person, while pity disempowers them. Those who learn the “compassion” personal growth lesson make wonderful healers, teachers, and counselors.
Forgiveness– If you were born into an abusive or dysfunctional family, you have the opportunity for tremendous personal growth through the process of forgiveness. Forgiveness doesn’t mean, “What you did to me is okay,” it simply means that you are no longer willing to carry the poison of anger within your mind and body. Those who forgive abuses makes the most wonderful counselors, as they truly understand how to move their clients through emotional pain and into healing.
