Trauma and abuse that happens during any stage of life can change a person’s perspective. Early trauma can alter life with the onset of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, or addiction that can occur right away or develop later in life. Without proper diagnosis or treatment to manage symptoms, someone’s purpose might be to align with their addiction to keep from having to deal with the pain of the past.

Recovery for trauma, along with addiction recovery, can unburden the soul and give an individual a better chance to get in line with their real purpose in life. Here are a few tips for aligning with your soul’s purpose to keep growing in your recovery.

Listen to Your Intuition

Your soul gives an intuition that is different from what your heart says and what your brain tells you. The connection you have with a Higher Power can guide you to do the right thing that is not based on emotion but provided from an ethical point of view. Deciphering the right way to go will come from repairing your moral compass through practicing making better choices all around.

Face Your Fears

Purpose comes from going through trials and learning from them. When you are high or drunk, you will find yourself in situations that are mostly self-inflicted tribulations. After you get sober, you will still have to deal with life on life’s terms, but your recovery can allow you the opportunity to face your fears head-on and assist you in defining your purpose in the process.

Define Your Core Beliefs

Understanding your purpose can be constructed by discovering your core beliefs. You may have found yourself following others in what they believe in instead of sticking to your truth. Deciding what your values are is vital to remain attuned to what your soul desires.

Without a purpose, you will find yourself bored and wondering what you are useful for, which can be detrimental to your recovery. To know what you are meant to do starts with understanding the standards of your personal goals.

Aligning with your soul’s purpose will lead you in a healthier direction in your recovery and permit you relief from the pain of your trauma. Your soul is screaming to connect with you, and once you do, you will live out your purpose to enhance your recovery in ways you could not imagine while giving your soul deserved joy.
