When Life’s Purpose is Struggle and Pain
No one said life would be easy. In fact, most of the time it is hard. This is true even when we have found our life’s meaning, purpose and mission. Look at Jesus for example, or Martin Luther King, Jr. Even the Dalai Lama has faced his fair share of adversity. This is especially true for those who are called into this life to transform and transmute the difficulties of this life into something meaningful. Empaths, Shadow Walkers, and Shadow Workers, especially, are called to this task. Not unlike Jesus, their (our) job is to experience the fullness of the human experience – suffering and all – so that others might live. Empaths, Shadow Workers and Shadow Walkers feel and experience the suffering of the world in ways that others do not. Not only do they (we) have their own unique brand of suffering, they feel the suffering and pain of others. The purpose of the suffering is so that healing may come to the pain. More than anything else, Empaths, Shadow Walkers and Shadow Workers are healers. This is what we came here to be and to do.

Transmuting the Darkness.
Seeing and Feeling the pain,
the constriction of the world.
Receiving it into the forge of our own bodies
So that it may be transformed.
Plunging into the depths
In search of every pebble of darkness
So as to bring it forth into the light.
To point out to humanity, the source of all that ails it.
Not because they have sinned,
But because they have allowed their fear to choose their path,
Instead of that which was originally intended –
A path made only of love.
Each of us is uniquely gifted to find meaning and purpose in our lives and to be a vessel through which healing, transformation, love may come into the world.
