Finding direction in life can be a struggle from one day to the next. You may constantly question if you're on the right path or not.

Fortunately, with a little work, you can figure it out how to steer yourself in the right direction.

Most people already know when they are or aren't on the right path. It's that deep inner knowing.

You may ignore it or try to hide from it. But inside, you know.

So if you're questioning whether you're on the right path or not, you probably aren't.

Meanwhile, when you're actually on the right path, there's an inner knowing and a feeling of always being in the right place at the right time.

Serendipitous and perfect synchronicities just always happen to show that you're on the right path. There's also always an inner excitement and drive to keep going further down that path.

There are many ways you can choose to be on the right path.

There's not one singular path — there are many to choose from. You can express yourself in how you choose by using your purpose gift.

You have the free will to choose which path is right for you. The key is that no matter what you do, you use your purpose gift in the way you choose.

And as long as you're using it, you're on the right path.

The more you use your purpose gift, the happier and better your life gets.

It's more like levels — you can still be on your path, but may not be too far on it. The farther you go, the better.

It happens in stages. As you add more of your purpose gift into your life, then more opportunities come up. If you choose to accept them, then you'll get farther down your path.

So even if you're not completely happy yet, that doesn't mean you aren't on your path. The path gets more beautiful as you go.

You find more peace, knowledge, and certainty that everything is right as you go. Having that is such an amazing gift — and you can have that.

Everyone can have that — we all can have it all.

Everyone all started from the same place with the same opportunities. But over many lives, your choices have either brought you further on your path or set you back. Usually, it's a little of both.

Your choices created exactly where you are now.

But the good news is that your choices can take you to where you want to go.

One way to know that you're not on the right path is if you notice a lot of repeating negative patterns.

Perhaps, you get a new person in your life, but they do the same negative things the last one did. You keep doing something that's attracting this type of partner, which keeps you off the path to a good relationship.

Another way to know is when you feel like you keep getting blocked, no matter what you try.

At first, your spirit guides will give you a light tap to warn you that you are going in the wrong direction. But if you don't listen to that light tap, it becomes stronger and stronger, until you're hitting a brick wall.

Since we all have free will, our spirit guides can't stop us from making a choice — but they can warn us strongly.

If you listen to those warnings, your life will be much easier. So, really pay attention when you keep being stopped. That means you're going the wrong way, and that choice isn't right for you.

Now, obstacles aren't always blocking so that can be difficult to distinguish. As you make new choices towards your path, dissonance will always happen — mishaps and things just going wrong at the wrong time.

That dissonance is actually a good sign and just shows you that you're closer to your goal. You need to keep going to push through that.

So, don't confuse dissonance, which is a good sign that means you're changing and closer to your goal, with guidance from your guides.

Dissonance happens when you're actively making changes to achieve your goal.

Guidance from your guides will be an ongoing thing if you continue in the wrong direction. It gets stronger and harder as you go.

Dissonance will only stop once you reach your goal. The best way to know if something is right for you is to ask yourself if it's aligned with your purpose gift.

Ideally, you want everything in your life to align even, including how you cook a meal or how you get ready. Your purpose gift should encompass everything you do, not just work.

The more you use your purpose gift, the happier and more abundant you will be in all areas of your life. You can never be abundant in your life if you aren't using your purpose gift.

Without using your purpose gift, finding direction life will always be a struggle. But the more you use it, the easier your life gets.

That constant struggle to finding direction in life shows you that something is wrong and you need to start using your gift. Struggle is just a sign that you need to make some changes.

Unfortunately, many people get stuck in that struggle and think that's just how life is and it won't change. It can change, so just use any struggle as guidance to get back on your path!

Don't just resign to it and stay stuck in the struggle to finding direction in life!

I don't want that for you.

Use it as a tool to get out of it and back on your path. Embrace and use your purpose gift thoroughly!

Your purpose gift is your path. It's your choice how you use it. But as long as you're using it, you're on your path. The more you use it, the farther down your path and better you will be!

Using your purpose gift not only makes you happy, but everyone around you as well.

Use your gift and help the world! No matter how far off of your path you are right now, you can choose to get right back on it at any time!
