Bewildered, befuddled and bewitched

Do you find yourself bewildered, befuddled and bewitched in these turbulent times? Life is hectic, busy and time just seems to slip by faster and faster than ever before. All the tricks and techniques we have used in the past just aren’t working anymore and there is this sense of being stuck or trapped.

Any of this sound familiar?

This is what many of my clients tell me about their lives and why they sought out Life on Purpose Institute. They realized that what worked for them in the past is not working for them now. All the bells and whistles they worked so hard to acquire were fun for a while but now it leaves them with an empty feeling. They want more to life. They want to make sense of things. They want to get to the root of what is going on.

You see we all have an Inherited Purpose, but most people don’t even know they have one and they certainly aren’t aware of what it is. So if we don’t know we have one, aren’t aware of what it is, then we certainly can’t do anything about it…or have any power over it.

That is why I love the Life on Purpose Process. It guides you through a process of uncovering the inherited purpose so you can get to the core of what is going on. The inherited purpose can leave us bewildered, befuddled and bewitched. It keeps us in its spell for so many years that finally one day we ask ourselves is this all there is to life? I thought I would be happier, accomplished more, and be more satisfied. What is wrong with me? Why am I not happy? Why can’t I feel more?

It is time to break the spell of the inherited purpose. If there is any chance of living the magical life we were meant to live, then we have to break the spell of the inherited purpose that keeps us stuck and trapped in the castle of our past — a life of no possibility, believing the lies we were told or we have told ourselves.

Before getting clear about my inherited purpose there were times in my life when I wondered “what made me do that?!”  One such time was years ago while I was traveling and attending a seminar in Chicago. I left the conference to go to a drug store. I was nervous about being in a big city all alone. Would I be safe? As I walked down the street I noticed a guy coming toward me who I thought looked very scary and dangerous. I thought to myself just look at the sidewalk and walk on by. “Just look down and walk by.” I said this to myself over and over. Then at the last minute as I passed him I looked up and said in my most southern drawl “Hi.” I was petrified. Why was I doing this? Why couldn’t I stop myself? It took me years to figure this out. It was my Inherited Purpose.

Now you may be saying so what’s the big deal? So you said hi to some scary guy. That is not the point. The point is that I could NOT stop myself. I was driven. I had to say hi. I had to be nice. I had to be polite and follow all the rules. This was one of those experiences that left me bewildered, befuddled and bewitched because I was stuck doing it. This memory has stayed with me because I couldn’t make sense of it. Why would I tell myself to not do something and then be driven to do the opposite? The answer was in uncovering my inherited purpose and as I gained clarity about the inherited purpose a whole new freedom to life opened up. I didn’t have to be driven by certain things. I could make new choices. I could be open to new possibilities. I could clarify my true purpose and live true to it in every aspect of my life.

We are opening a new Life on Purpose tele-series that is scheduled to start in July. In this class every participant will have the opportunity to uncover their inherited purpose and get clear about their true life purpose. It will be an eight-week class conducted over the phone. If this sounds like something you would like to know more about then please feel free to contact us at Life on Purpose. You can find out more details at:

I don’t know if this program is for you or not. Only you know that. If you do know it is for you and you know you want to be in it then I am offering a special reward to the first 4 people who register for our class. If you’re one of those four, you’ll receive an individual coaching session with me, Ann Swift, co-founder of Life on Purpose Institute.

So if you would like to go beyond bewildered, befuddled and bewitched and live a life following your true purpose, then join me in the upcoming class.  If you want to discuss this possibility then email me at or call me at 828 697-0057.

Time to Declare Your Own Freedom?

Next week we in the USA celebrate Independence Day on July 4th.  I’m wondering how many people will take a stand to free themselves from the fear and self-limiting thinking of their past this summer.

Perhaps you’re longing for a deeper spiritual connection — a deeper and fuller appreciation for all that life has to offer.

Or maybe you feel adrift in life. You’re just going through the motions, but meanwhile, there’s this nagging voice within saying, “there must be more to life than this.”  But how do you tap into that more meaningful life?

It could be that you find yourself at a crossroads in your life and not sure which direction to turn. If so, you may feel stuck, confused or unsure how to move forward.

Or it could be you’ve been feeling overwhelmed and stressed out right now. You find yourself in the “doing more and more while enjoying it less and less” vicious cycle.

If so, rest assured there’s nothing wrong — really, nothing wrong with you or your life.

There may, however, be something missing, the presence of which could make all the difference in the world:

Clarity of Purpose.

Learn how to gain ‘clarity of purpose’ in your own life this summer with the Life On Purpose Teleseries.
