[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: May 2008]
[Question] I am at a cross road in my life path. I am a healer and I don’t know where to go in my life at this moment. I am thinking of moving to New Mexico, but in my heart I want to create and set up a healing center. Also who the heck am I really? What did I come here to do in this life?
Though we cannot respond to you in any way that is direct and personal through this format, we can say to the last question, in general, that you “came here” to do what you want. There are no assignments. There is only choice. There are ideas that Essence has before the life begins, but these are only ideas, not assignments or anything one could interpret as a “purpose.” You are here to learn how to choose, and to choose how to learn. It really is that simple.
In terms of “who am I, really?” we can only say that this question can never have a conclusive answer. All of the answers that we could give or that you could give would be indications and symptoms of who you are, but WHO you are is not so easily defined. You are a conglomeration; an ever-changing creation; a witness to the varying ways of being that you try on.
In other words, you are who you feel and think you are at any given moment.
If you are confused, be confused. It’s not permanent.
If you are lonely, be lonely. It’s not permanent.
If you are happy, be happy. It’s not permanent.
But these things are “who you are” at the moment.
What most fragments do is spend more time on the past or future of themselves so that they miss the moment of who they are. That is all you can ever be: who you are in the moment. And it changes.
To answer this more specifically, we would have to speak with you outside of this format, but we can say that your cross-roads is merely an opportunity for creating the path that you most wish to pursue. We would say that you are quite clear about what you wish to do, but simply fear the obstacles that might be ahead. Our telling you that you are “on the right path” will not remove those obstacles. The only thing that can help in clearing your path is your enthusiasm and trust in yourself as you take your next steps.
We have more to say on this subject, if sought through another format.
