Ask Dr. Orloff

Am I on the right track in fulfilling my life's purpose?

Question: Dear Dr. Orloff,

I've been a pharmacist for many years but always had the desire to go into a holistic approach to counseling. I finished my Masters and a residency in holistic counseling but then had several life changing challenges including several miscarriages and cancer treatment. I still have an interest in integrative counseling but I still don't have a sign from the universe that I'm on the right track. I start questioning if I'm on fulfilling my life's purpose or not. What advice can you me?

Answer: Dear Cristina,

I recommend starting a meditation practice to help you tune into your intuition. It can be as simple as the 3 min heart meditation that I write about in Emotional Freedom. Be patient, the answer will come. Also read Emotional Freedom to practice letting go of fear. You have been through so much and should celebrate her courage. Keep everything simple and be reverent for the tiny flowers/gifts all around you.
All the best,
