Purpose of Your Life


What a great subject - I love it! You probably know that my Creating Happiness Intentionally (CHI) Seminar is about developing your life's purpose and all the goals that will take you there. A psychiatrist - Dr Michael Newton - who wrote the very popular books "Journey of Souls" and "Destiny of Souls", as a result of working for more than 40 years with tens of thousands of clients, found that what people really wanted to know was The Purpose of Life.

Even OPRAH knows that discovering your life purpose is a priority, so much so that she's holding the  largest web based seminar in history, with Eckhart Tolle, about this very subject.


A New Book

A friend of mine sent me information this week about a newly released book by Keith Leon. Keith interviewed 64 prominent people (7 from "The Secret") about the Purpose of Your Life and collated this in the book titled "Who Do You Think You Are? Discover the purpose of your life", with the Foreword by Jack Canfield - author of "Chicken Soup for The Soul".

A brief Synopsis of the book is:

Have you ever wondered why you are here on earth?  What is the purpose of your life?  Read the stories of well-known people who have found their answer to these questions! When did they realise who they really were, what their purpose in this world was, and that they were responsible for fulfilling that purpose?  What do they believe about themselves?  How do they keep believing it?  How did/do they keep going when other people (or the voice inside their own head) says, "Who do you think you are?" to attempt that or do that or claim that.  You will find the answers to these questions inside this book!


A New Phase of my Journey

Right now a new phase of my journey is beginning. I am about to sign a contract to conduct a Life's Purpose Seminar for Corporate Executives as part of a leadership course (it is to be a similar course to the CHI Seminar I presently conduct and I expect to be kept quite busy).

It is my current thought to continue to conduct the CHI seminar and have it open to all. If you've been thinking about doing CHI - now may be the time to give it really serious thought because the cost will increase from October onwards. My CHI Seminar is about determining your Life's Purpose and all the goals that lead to your Life's Purpose. The next one is from 21 May to 25 May and at the moment it is still at the same price! Book now!

I received a wonderful story - really a "life's journey" from a participant at a recent CHI Seminar about the application of techniques that he learned - I really recommend reading it. Here it is - it's from Barry Daniels.

Dear Sandy,

It is now over a year since I graduated from CHI. Life has been steadily changing, or possibly rather my view of the world is changing, which I am sure is due to going to PP nearly every day for 30 – 60 minutes, which can occasionally lead to such a deep sense of peace, that I do not wish to return.

Thanks to Sandy, I now have a tool kit upon which I can draw as I need, and apply within PP. Each month, and sometimes each week, often brings new insights, as my perspective lifts to higher planes.

I will always remember the time, when moving along my imaginary walkway, (stainless steel steps, with shiny hand rails) that I thought I would pass my fingers over the door pillars as I entered my PP. The new sense of being there, amazed me. Just one small change took me to an even deeper level of understanding, and confidence. Confidence that I could make a decision to test one small change, with such big impact.

That is the beauty of this journey we are on, it is OK to try, to test, and see what happens. For our PP, is “Our own” PP , we can make it anything we like, make adjustments as we wish, and sense what happens.

With more exploration, I have found from my early days of graduating from CHI, a tool that I tested on my flight home from Sydney – still a skeptic I guess, I still had to prove to myself the power of what our mind can do.

Anyway, on the flight home, late Sunday evening, with no one either side of me, I went to my PP, and thought I would envisage white pigeons flying towards me, initially one, then two, and 3 etc , and as I did this, saying to myself: “I love to go deeper, and deeper, deeper and deeper”. To my amazement, I arrived at my 6th pigeon , and I suddenly realised my breathing was so shallow, so slow, that I was initially shocked, even scared that I could do this and achieve such a peaceful state, that my breathing had reduced to a level never experienced by me before.

So you guessed it, on the windows of my PP, I now have one pigeon on the first, two on the second , all the way to 5 on the 5th window sill. All are anchors for me going deeper and deeper.

Another change I found enormously helpful, and a nice way to remember the Special People that have been brought my way; as I walk step by step to my PP, going deeper, and deeper, every step of the way, I arrive at the door to my PP and I always remove my shoes/foot wear. I see people who throughout my life that have been Special people to me - generally limited to 3 – 4 on each occasion and I hug each of them.

Also sometimes I let my mind bring in whoever it chooses, and sometimes I purposefully allow in those whom I have perceived as having harmed me. I also hug them, and express my gratitude, for teaching me what I needed to learn at the time.

I find this process a nice way to daily experience unconditional love, forgiveness and gratitude, as I am reminded of those Special People, including those whom I have perhaps almost? forgotten, and some whom I have viewed with displeasure.

And affirmations too, I have tried these for many years in the hope that they would work, but could not feel any change within … until Sandy taught us the structure of the ideal affirmation. Must be personal, present tense, positive and have emotion (I hope I have them all Sandy).

Well, I am a jogger, and still skeptical of affirmations, but having experienced Sandy’s PP, I thought ‘Well let’s try this while jogging, and see what happens” (I can feel the shivers up my spine now as I write this …wow) …. Well , whilst jogging about 6 months ago, I thought I will try saying this, over and over, with each step. Here is what I said, and found after 15 minutes an emerging energy, not speed, not a rush, just an emerging change. A feeling that I could just now keep going, on and on.

This is all I said: “I love my increasing stamina every step of the way” …

I kept on with this, with faith, over and over, every step of the way; nearly entering a meditative state.

The lift in my energy was definitely noticeable, my jogging became easier, and easier.

I have certainly noticed changes in my life and the first one that comes to mind, for which I am most grateful, involves one of my teenage daughters (my wife and I have 4 children, including teenage triplets). Three years ago, we were in the midst of a nasty chain of events, such as the collapse of 4 businesses (25 years work) with over 400 staff, personal debts of over $18M , Managing Director committing suicide at 53, my brother suffering a massive stroke (and me becoming his carer), my sister dying of cancer, and many trusted relationships, all dying and fading away. My value system, and beliefs were tested to the core.

All these events I believe led me to not making the wisest of choices in handling my eldest daughter’s teenage years, and I felt our relationship to be very strained, and even to a degree I would say, estranged . That weighed very heavily on my soul.

So PP to the rescue, over many months, each morning, at 5.30 am I would go to my PP, using the principles from Sandy’s CD on Unconditional Love, and the White-Light of the Divine. I would watch this white light come towards me, like a liquid white light, in tubular shape, soft, transparent, and warm; coming from the very heart of the Divine, sitting to my right in my PP … a white-light of unconditional love, passing from my mind down my right arm, my left, then my abdomen, and legs, every cell, sinew, muscle and bone, all changing to a glowing white light. Sometimes warm, sometimes tingling, and always there. This I would then see travel down the hallway of our home to each of our 4 children, to their beds, to my wife, all turning white, from head to toe, and to my daughter from whom I was feeling estranged; she was always first; seeing her body engulfed by the warmth, and protection; head to toe, glowing, basking in the unconditional love of the Divine. I prayed for he r care and protection.

I can now testify, over many months, my behaviour changed. The answers I got to the question of “What shall I do”, was … just love her, love her, love her. How shall I love her? Communicate with her, show her you care. Just communicate with her.

Well I can thankfully testify, our relationship is back on track, special, open, free of spirit and of good humour. I hear that little voice every so often ... communicate with her, love her. Extraordinary.

But why did this occur ? I am an engineer by qualification, and have no way of explaining this in any analytical way, but I do know, I have changed. My view of her, her world, my world, and other’s worlds – all changed. Changed for the better.

PP has helped me to move to a higher plane, a higher perspective, and to experience the fruits of the Divine’s Unconditional love, and unconditional forgiveness.

And you know … although I’m not the first to realise and say it … the more I know, the more I find I don’t know and the more I have to learn.

Thanks Sandy for teaching me the tools , and your patient , caring and loving teaching.

For you, your teachings, and your willingness to share, I will be forever grateful.

May the Divine continue to touch others through you, helping them to discover inner peace as their lives unfold as they should, for the highest good of all concerned.

From Barry J Daniels - CHI Graduate

So, let me take this opportunity of really of urging you to consider doing this CHI seminar before the price increase. Remember the CHI seminar is conducted in a confidential, supportive atmosphere whereby you talk about personal issues only if you wish to - read more encouragement in the PS below.

All the best,

Success Stories

Here is a great progress report from another CHI Participant who now takes 2 days off each week from his business, leading a much more balanced life, he has rejoined the golf club and is playing golf with his Dad once every two weeks.

Well it's been one month out from our CHI seminar in Sydney and as promised I am responding to your request via email 25/02/08. I allowed a month to pass to enable the dust / emotions of the CHI experience to settle.
? I can say that I am still as excited and as positive as when we left the Chevalier Centre on the Sunday afternoon.
? What a wonderful five days of sharing, not only with you, but with ''the Group.'' Ten unique people in their own right, with different challenges but searching for a common goal … "Life’s Purpose Now.''
? Prior to attending the CHI seminar I had only four days off in three and half months. Work seemed to dominate my time, I had become pretty grumpy, hated serving the public and had lost any real sense of enjoyment in my life. Sadly enough, I had no real goals or direction to extract myself from such a rut. Sometimes when you are in a rut you just don’t realise it, let alone being able to see out of it. I always remember an ol d quote " the only difference between a rut and a grave are the dimensions."
? Didn't you change that ! I came away from the seminar with several goals which obviously are all reflected in my Life’s Purpose Now.
? I must say that meditating and reinforcing my goals in Alpha daily makes the day flow with relative ease. My goals seem to look after themselves when firmly planted in the subconscious.
? On your advice I ordered Michael Newton’s book " Journey of Souls,"; second paragraph on page 68 is very relevant to our CHI experience, it states "the superconscious identity of the soul houses our continuous memory, including goals. When the time in our lives is appropriate, we must harmonize human material needs with our soul's purpose for being here."
? The timing of the CHI seminar was certainly appropriate for me. I now feel that I can move forward in life with clarity of purpose in a very positive manner. The mind change has been so refreshing and exciting.
? As you are aware, I had lunch with Sandra a fortnight ago. Her description of post CHI says it all, words to the effect " you feel light, as if you are two feet off the ground, a sense of a great weight having been lifted from your shoulders."
? Sandy, words can’t really express my appreciation to you for your guidance and support. A simple thank you seems so feeble. Please my feeble "Thank You" with gratitude, love and of course the light.

Here is another great sharing from a participant who is talking about the second CHI that she has attended.

Since attending CHI in Sydney (2006), many of my identified goals have been achieved, in particular the most pressing ones - time to write and 'just be'. Having had a very hectic, albeit wonderfully satisfying and rewarding, career for many years, I decided, as a result of the goal clarity achieved through CHI and using PP for support, to apply for a year's unpaid leave as a way of finding time to write and 'just be'.
? The very same day, I was unexpectedly offered and accepted a year long, very flexible, part-time consultancy that gave me both an income and time to write and 'just be'. This was to prove fortuitous as later that year unforeseen family events occurred. Achieving the goals I identified through the CHI process meant I was now in a position to spend quality time with and support my family, whilst still enjoying time to write and 'just be'.
? So thanks again Sandy for supporting me through the CHI process - an inspiring and empowering group proce ss that safely facilitates deep reflection and decision making, whilst enabling each individual to determine the degree of participation. PS Tas
