Living Life Purposefully – a ‘q&a’ with Jessica Huie, Author of ‘Purpose’
It continues to amaze me every day just how the universe works such magic. I recently connected with the most beautiful being, Jessica Huie – entirely by chance, I might add. I had enquired about one of her workshops, and later found an email whooshing inquisitively into my inbox about our mutual love of writing. We instantly bonded over our similar missions to lead the conscious awareness of people, empowering them to step into the realisation of their truth – and from there we stepped into the realm of possibility to co-create this blog for you.
And so, I found myself reviewing her latest book – ‘Purpose’ – and offering the gems of insights from our connected conversation, in the form of a Q&A below. It struck me, as I heard in the book that the universe connects people, in this moment, the universe aligned me with Jessica to fill my heart with joy and hope – and hopefully to do the same for my readers!
Jessica’s Understanding: Telling the Truth about Our Purpose
‘Purpose’ is a book that tells the truth. For me, it aligned with my own knowing that we are not broken, we can all connect with our truth, and that we can all embrace our calling; but there was so much innate wisdom that unfolded within the pages. This book had me – in different moments – both in absolute stiches of laughter, contrasting with rolling tears of empathy as I shared Jessica’s journey. She is a real inspiration, and I really loved the way she shared her insights so eloquently.
Not only this, but there is a repeating pattern of generosity that beams throughout Jessica’s entire being – and that shines through each page. When I first chatted with Jessica, her email was warm; I felt a real sense of an ‘offering’ of an opportunity, and of her holding open a door to me, just as she introduces in her first chapter that her health visitor had for her. She is a beautiful soul; it is clear that Jessica wants to speak to the hearts of those on similar journeys – those with high hopes of embodying their purpose – and Jessica truly embodies everything her book stands for. For that, there was so much gratitude as I reviewed this inspirational read.
For those of you who haven’t read ‘Purpose,’ please do (you can buy it HERE). There were so many realisations that I resonated with – the truth that we are not broken; the fact that our stories don’t matter; ideas that there is nothing really to do to really ‘awaken,’ other than answer the call to be brave enough to leap in order to become who we really are – and the idea that all we need is already within, and that we just need to step into it and use our voice because once we do there is infinite possibility…
My Understanding of How Life Works
I am a woman with a similar purpose, because I became conscious of how life really works in this way, much along the same trail (I even visit Inner Space at Covent Garden just the same)! I have resonated with feelings of ‘not being enough,’ being ‘alone’ and of ‘striving for more’ at times, and like Jessica says, I still dip in and out of this – as we all do. The difference is, these days I know that I am absolutely whole and perfect at the truthful core, underneath all of the noise!
In my own ‘awakening’ to the truth, I discovered that not only is there a divine universal energy guiding us, meaning we are all ‘one’ and, therefore, always connected (namaste!), but that there is nothing to do to awaken to this because it is just the truth; when we understand how life works, our thought begins to drop away, leaving the truth.
How, you ask? Within our human experience, we operate from our thinking, which we are living in the feeling of, moment to moment. Whatever we think is just ‘thought’ in the moment, with no capacity to impact us, because it is not the truth; the real truth sits underneath, and we can get clarity at any time, just by letting go of our thinking. As Jessica says – “truth has a way of cutting through the noise.”
The real truth is that we are already whole and perfect. We are already our purpose; we might just not see if it is clouded by our thinking and so it feels like we need to step into it, but we just need to let go of the noise in order to step out. Our reality comes from our inside-out thought creation – and, in this way, all we need to do is see our thinking for what it is and remember our true nature is our purpose.
Hearing One Truth in Many Different Ways
I heard all of this in Jessica’s book – and yet it was described in different ways. For me, it just takes hearing something differently, in a way that you can really hear it – in your heart. That’s all that happened to me to arrive at the same truth as Jessica: you just hear something in a meaningful way to you, which resonates. So, if you feel like you’ve not yet heard that you are already whole and perfect – that you are already your purpose – give Jessica’s book a read!
A Different Conversation about Finding Your Purpose – with Nicole Barton and Jessica Huie
To end, some gorgeous insight just popped into my head from this experience: the fact that this lovely connection happened and that the universe opened this door, quite by chance, speaks to me that we are already living in our purpose. The same goes for everyone reading it; follow your heart and the door will open. Thank you for this learning.
