Lesson 8 Inside Your Global Mission
In our last lesson, we looked at some externals related to your Global Mission, such as noticing which occupations and people you most admire. In this lesson, we’ll examine some internal components of your mission. These internal components of your Global Mission often feel like an alarm clock ringing deep inside of you. You may feel the alarm clock ringing as a pressure in your gut, urging you to make a contribution to world peace. Or, you may connect with your inner alarm clock in the form of worry: you worry about why you’re on the planet, the meaning of your life, what your life’s purpose is, whether you can make money with your purpose, or whether someone else will “beat you to your purpose.”
You may also feel your mission in the form of joy whenever you think about it. Or you may feel it as anger as you think about a global issue (such as children or environmentalism) which is near and dear to your heart. Your Global Mission knocks on your inner doors through repetitive feelings (such as those described above), thoughts, ideas, visions, and wishes. These inner messages always have the same theme: they ask you to improve the world in some way. You may think that your mission is just a dream. You may worry whether you are qualified or prepared for your mission.
The ego is our lower self. Everyone has an ego, and it’s nothing to feel ashamed of. What matters is that you recognize the ego’s tell-tale characteristics of guilt, fear, doubt, and blame… and not give it power or reality. Your ego doesn’t want you to remember your Global Mission, because the ego wants to continue its reign of fear. So the ego always attacks our most vulnerable issues. For instance, if you fear being arrogant, your ego will tell you that you’re being arrogant by dreaming about helping others. If you fear being wrong, then the ego will tell you not to make decisions because you might make the “wrong” decision. If you fear others ridiculing you, the ego will taunt you with that ridiculing fear when you think about speaking in public. Reclaiming Your Indigo Power means taking back your power from the ego. It means putting your power into your Global Mission instead.
Lesson 8 Assignment
This week, notice your repetitive feelings, thoughts, and dreams which urge you to make improvements in the world. Write them down, even if you don’t believe they’re real or possible. On separate pieces of paper, write any ego-fears which arise when you think about making these contributions to the world. Put those ego-fears into the God Box which you created in Lesson 4. (A God Box is a special box in a private place or on an altar in which you place your prayers or worries, as a way of letting them go). Affirm frequently, “I am safe, loved, and protected as I focus upon bringing more light into this world through my Global Mission.”
