What is your life’s purpose?
My purpose is to empower others by helping them release mental, emotional, and physical blocks to inner empowerment.
How are you living your purpose?
I am an author (Live an Empowered Life: A 30 Day Journey), podcaster (“Empowering Chats with Susan Burrell”), speaker, spiritual guide, and coach. I also create weekly guided meditations on Facebook and for Insight Timer. All with the intention to support anyone who wants to lead a life of confidence, self-love, and empowerment.
How did you find your purpose?
I have been a spiritual quester all of my adult life. I always wanted to know more of who I am and how to love myself. I read, studied, and followed many. I also worked with shamans and medicine women early on in my life. I committed myself to allow the Highest to flow through me. Each leg of my personal journey led me deeper within myself.
Becoming diabetic and almost dying in my early 30s was another deepening into self-awareness. The more I studied, the more I changed from the inside out. While I was going through a 4-year master’s program, I again heard the call within to do this work. After a life-shattering divorce, I came out knowing more of who I am. I found that my empathic abilities had multiplied as well as my healing skill sets.
I suppose how I found my purpose was simply by living my life, falling down a lot, and allowing the protection around my heart to shatter so that I could truly reveal to myself and to the world who I have always been.
What advice do you have for purpose seekers?
In order to find your true purpose, you have to be willing to not be afraid of what wants to flow through you. Meaning that we each have a Divine spark and wisdom within and when you listen to that and not what society tells us to be, you can find your inner guidance and your purpose. It is all within you—always has been. Do not doubt that you know your purpose; you were born with it. All you need to do is listen to your heart-wisdom.
