Noted Karmic astrologer Dora Jones believes “Each of us comes into life with a promise, a gift, a passion, and a deep heartfelt desire.”
The promise is what you have come to life to master. You have promised to overcome, resolve, or heal some aspect of your consciousness. As you face your life experiences, you are allowed to fulfill this promise. Your responses to your experiences determine whether you fulfill or break the promise you have made to yourself.
The gift is what you have come to give to life. It is the cornerstone of self-determination and self-actualization. The gift constitutes your talents and abilities, the special things you do as only you can do them. The gift is enhanced or diminished by how you do what you do and how you share the things you do naturally or well with others.
Passion represents those things you pursue sheer joy- those things you do that make you feel alive and meaningful, valuable, and worthy.
Dr. Mamie Parker left her small Southern town inspired by, and I quote, ” Momma and Marvin.” Her many experiences and degrees have accommodated her promise, passion, and gifts. On the way, she exceeded all expectations as a woman of color in her field. She has been a biologist and senior executive in the federal government as the FWS Chief of Staff, Assistant Director of Habitat Conservation, and Head of Fisheries in this country. Dr.Mamie is known for her public speaking throughout the environmental community. She is currently the district commissioner for the Department of Wildlife Resources.
Take a listen, be inspired, and find truth in the fact that impossible is merely a word to describe the degree of difficulty.Until next time, remember,
You are not alone.
You are not your circumstances.
You have everything within you to live a purpose-filled life.
