Most of us want to feel as if we have
some kind of purpose. Part of this desire
has to do with our insecurities of our own
worthiness, but in essence, we desire a
purpose because we sense there really was
a soul intention behind our incarnation.
Some people incarnate to experience life,
welling from a fundamental “I want to
try THAT” impulse. Others come to clear
karmic debts, so to speak; their purpose
may be to create balance from previous
incarnations. Then there are the willing
students (or maybe not so willing) who’ve
decided to learn or advance in a particular
lesson or even get their master’s degree.
The intention of the masters - those who
have gained a “higher” degree of spiritual
consciousness - was to incarnate to fulﬁll a
speciﬁc spiritual mission.
Almost everyone has incarnated with a
combination of intentions - experiential,
karmic, educational, and spiritual. For
example, the experiential traveler will
encounter several lessons along his path,
while the spiritual master may have some
ﬁnal karmic debts to complete as she
embarks on her mission.
If we look at the core of a soul’s intention
with a more linear perspective, we can
discern the “stage” of consciousness of
the soul based on its fundamental life
intention. Of course, when we recognize
everything as vibration, we can release
judgment, know there really are no
“levels”, and can observe all things
with neutrality. Yet, by seeing the soul’s
evolution through a hierarchal lens, we
gain understanding about our soul’s
original intention as well as our life path.

its perceived obstacles, and can be the
impetus we need to forge ahead with
With the birth of the New Age our
planet welcomed an unprecedented
inﬂux of spiritual masters. Likely, you

The majority of spiritual masters begin
with fairly ordinary lives. As children,
they may have felt “different” or simply
“knew”, “saw” or “felt” things that they
didn’t understand. Though we all have
access to our intuitive senses, spiritual
masters usually incarnate with well-
evolved skills, as well as a clear sense of
Divine Source, however they interpret it.
As part of their life experiences, most
people have learned to suppress, hide and
overlook their intuitive gifts, soul mastery
and, therefore, their mission.
With the collective spiritual awakening,
many masters have spent numerous years
trying to understand who they are and
why they are here. Many have made
signiﬁcant progress in their quest, though
most continue to hide behind layers of old
tapes, fears and confusion as they press
through the bustle of their daily lives.
Even those who have discovered that they
are indeed masters have resisted fully
aligning with their mission. Why is this?
Basically, recognizing one’s masterhood
can be quite difﬁcult. Most people
have spent a good portion of their lives
