Why are you here? Why do you even exist? Is it just some cosmic joke or does the Universe need you? Are you necessary or just superfluous? Stay tuned for today’s video and find out what all the fuss is about!
Awesome Lisa’s Burning Question:
“I’d like to know more about the Law of Attraction and uniqueness. Sometimes, I feel superfluous and unnecessary. If I dropped off the face of the earth, then all the people who know me would just attract other people (or other aspects of people) to play the role in their lives that I used to play. It seems like I’m not really needed. I’d like to think that there’s something unique that I can offer others, but in order for other people to experience whatever is unique about me, wouldn’t they have to share that specific quality (and then it wouldn’t be unique)? I can understand that maybe we all have some general quality of uniqueness or specialness, but when I get more specific about what it is in my case (e.g. a particular sense of humor, or a particular perspective on life, or a particular charitable act), I can’t understand what I could offer that others could experience that they wouldn’t have already (at a vibrational level). It’s a little weird to think, ‘Anything I can do for so-and-so, he would still get even if I disappeared, because it’s in his vibration and someone else would come along and do it for him if I weren’t there.’ I can see how people might take a dip in their vibration momentarily if I dropped off the face of the earth (maybe they would use my being gone as a reason to feel bad or something), but since they can choose to go back up again and re-attract whatever qualities I gave them via someone else, it just seems like I’m unnecessary. How do we feel special as individuals, if we can only offer others what they already have, vibrationally?”
Wow Lisa, what a question! First of all, I have to commend you on an excellent question! Well thought out…and totally over thinking it, but that’s what the people in my audience does! You’re highly intellectual people who want to understand how shit actually works, and I’m very happy to explain this, because that’s what I do!
First of all, you’re right! You can only ever mirror back to somebody what is already in their vibrational field. If you step on somebody’s toes in the subway, that person attracted you stepping on their toes. You may have absolutely no idea why you did that, but it will fall into the path that they are on. They may have some victimization thing going on where they get stepped on 20 times that day, and then something finally busts out and they say, “Stop it, I can’t take it anymore!” They start standing up for themselves and you were just one of the angels that the Universe brought to them to help them by you stepping on their toes.
In that respect, you are correct. If somebody is ready to experience kindness for example, they can experience it through you or, if you don’t volunteer for that, they can experience it through somebody else. It is never your obligation to fulfill any role for anybody else. But that is about where your correctness ends.
You have no obligation to anyone
You are not here for them. You are not here for anybody else; you are not here out of some sense of obligation to the rest of humanity. You are not here to fulfill any role for anybody; you’re not here to be kind or to be mean to anybody. It has absolutely nothing to do with them. These are your partners in the game; you get to play with others if you choose too, but you don’t have to. That’s not your purpose; you are not here for others. The stuff that you talked about in your question about being there for them, fulfilling a role for them (and does it even matter if you do?), is irrelevant. No it doesn’t matter if you do, because that’s not what you are here for.
Instead of thinking it means you don’t matter, understand that it can set you free. It’s often our sense of overwhelming obligation to fulfill the roles that others what us to fill (so that they don’t have to deal with their shit), that keeps us stuck and stops us from living our dreams. If you’ve decided, though, that this is why you matter – because this is what you were taught and it was what was modeled for you, then figuring out that you don’t play as big as a role in other people’s reality as you thought you did, might leave you feeling unimportant and unnecessary. But once again, it’s not about them; it’s about you. You are so much more important than that. You are not just a bit player in a movie, you are the star. You are the star of your own movie! You’re the headlining act! You are not a supporting player; you are the IT girl. You’re IT, girl! *snort*
Why are you important?
You are important because of your perspective, NOT because of the perspective you can offer to others. It’s just because of your perspective, because of every decision that you can make, and because only you would make it exactly that same way, especially when you put all of those decisions together in combination. Every choice that you’ve made with your free will (even when you didn’t know it was a choice), creates a unique experience, a unique path that only you will ever walk. No one will ever come behind you and walk the exact same path as you. By doing that, and by making every decision that you make, by holding every perspective that you do, by making every choice that you make, you offer this unique perspective. Also with the data that you are gathering by walking that path, you’re adding to the collective wisdom, to the Universe, and to all of us – as everybody does.
If you didn’t exist, we would be missing out on the information that you have to offer through your vibration. It’s not an obligation, you are doing it whether you know it or not. You are doing it just by existing. That is why you are here. You are benefitting everyone, just by being here, just by focusing into this wonderful physical reality.
You don’t have to be here, but you did choose to come. It was your choice, and when you made that choice, you did so not from a place of obligation, or in order to learn lessons, or in order to be valuable to humanity, or even the Universe. You came in order to have the experience, the unique experience that only you can ever have. You came to ride this amazing ride exactly and specifically in the way that you can do it, that you would do it. No one before you or no one after you ever in the history of the universe will walk that exact same path again. You came for the adventure, you reveled in the idea of it, and you knew of your power. You knew you were a master, and you came and set yourself possibly some really large challenges, because that’s what masters do.
You are a master of the game
When you are really good at a video game, you are not going to go in and play the basic levels; you want the biggest, baddest dragon boss they have. You said, “Give me that sword and I will battle that dragon, because I know I can, and I will have fun doing it!” You came for the fun of it, and to set yourself a really big challenge, because that is what a master does. Like I said, you gave yourself the biggest challenge that you possibly could, which was to forget that you are a master; but you’re in the process of remembering that now, and that’s a pretty cool thing. That’s an amazing purpose. You came to play this game at a time of awakening. You chose that, it wasn’t a mistake; the timing of your birth was not a mistake. You came here now, because right now is where it’s at, right now is where it’s all going down. Right now is where it’s all exploding and shifting and turning on its head. You knew that when you were on the other side of that, the fun would be enormous. You came for the ride of your life. This life anyway! Ha.
Are you needed by the Universe? No. The Universe will go on without you, whether you exist or not. The Universe is not desperate for your existence. The Universe REVELS in your existence. All physical beings, non-physical beings, the mountains, the earth itself revel and rejoice in your existence. You are not needed; you are wanted. You are wanted by the Universe; you are wanted by all that is. The Universe doesn’t need your contribution. There’s no pressure, there’s no obligation; you are free to choose whatever you want. But you are so desired and so wanted. Your existence is celebrated every nanosecond of every day.
