Let yourself be drawn by the pull of what you really love. - Rumi
For thousands of years, people have wondered why they are here and what they are here to do.
Come and explore what’s truly yours to do, and who you are meant to become.
As a care provider, do you desire to make a difference yet feel like something’s missing in you work?
Are you taking another course, certification or degree hoping things will get better?
Are you in search of the sweet spot in caregiving that called you to the profession in the first place?
When we are caught in a system that doesn't seem to be working we can end up overworking to try to fix it instead of doing the things that are truly ours to do.
Imagine yourself saying "yes" to making a difference in a way that feels true for you.
Caravan Guide ~ Linda Shea, PhD
Ever since I was a child, I’ve wanted to help others and make a difference. I came by this desire honestly, as I watched my parents work and volunteer in healthcare and the community. I also believed that if I worked hard and believed in myself, I would succeed. So when I studied nursing, I played by the ‘rules’ and began to ‘achieve success.’
After a while, I began to notice a widening gap between my core values and my ability to express them at work. I tried to bridge the gap by moving cities, jobs, and certifying and educating myself, all the while still trying to fit into traditional structures and systems. A desire to authentically express myself in the world was knocking at the door and I was getting restless.
A turning point came when I started looking inside and getting curious about my unique piece of this puzzle. It felt to me like there were important threads from my life that I could not put down, which held clues for me living my life with a deeper sense of meaning and purpose. As I began my life mission quest, looking for clues and following threads, I felt more connected to and reliant on an inner voice calling me forward. I also felt more energy and vitality doing more of what I love and felt called to do.
While I’m still on this journey, I notice that the life mission conversation is like a navigation beacon that keeps me on course on a daily basis. As a Caravan Guide, I want this for you too! That’s why I support individuals in the helping professions who want to nurture and live into that sense of deep inner calling, especially at this time of transformation on the planet. Come and explore what’s truly yours to do, and who you are meant to become. The world’s waiting for you to step into your life mission!
Connect to what Matters...for your Life's Mission
Kindness, caring, compassion, service – qualities of many in the caring professions who have a desire to help others and be in service to something greater than themselves. Now, more than ever, serving something greater than ourselves is needed for individual and collective healing of humanity and the planet. Yet, over the past few years, nurses, teachers, social workers, and others, have felt a growing sense of discord between the inner calling that brought them to their professions, and their ability to fully express their deeply held values in their work. With newly inspired determination, many are looking inward to reconnect to their core values, and find a way to step forward in their lives with a greater sense of purpose, in harmony with their truest and highest selves.
Dr. Linda Shea, life mission guide, nurse educator and coach, has been in a deep conversation with herself and her clients about what it means to embody caring from a place of one’s essential nature and life mission calling. Through training with Daniel Goodenough, life mission mentor, international trainer, and author of The Caravan of Remembering: A Roadmap to Experiencing the Awakening of your Life’s Mission, Linda found a way to gently and sacredly connect with her core purpose and life mission. Years later, she is a Caravan Guide herself, helping people connect with their own inner guidance and unique life mission gifts. Take a step on to that life mission path at www.caravanofremembering.com/lindashea and say “YES” to living a meaningful life in service to what you truly love.
What is that something that we feel is so much a part of us
that we cannot walk away?
