Sharing personal information brings people closer together. But how do you know when you’ve gone too far—or when someone else has ulterior motives?
Verified by Psychology Today
Thanks for your question. I define a call as any sign, signal, I urging or prompting that tells what it’s going to take to make your life literally “come true.” That leads you toward a state or sense of integrity with yourself, authenticity, engagement, purpose, meaning, aliveness. Whether it’s a vocational calling, a relationship callling, or a spiritual calling.
The calls can come in the form of intuitions, gifts, dreams, body smptoms, synchronicities (meaningful coincidences), or just the section of the bookstore you always go to when you walk into a bookstore. It could point you toward following a particular passion, expressing a gift, or speaking your truth.
Hope this helps in some way. If you’re interested in learning more about the subject, I also encourage you to pick up a copy of my book Callings.
