Your hero's journey begins with a call to adventure. The hero of your story is your own soul and the part of you that needs rescuing is your wounded ego. The journey is about waking up to the freedom of a heart-centered life.
“We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” ~ Joseph Campbell
The call to adventure takes you from an ordinary life to one that is extraordinary. You may choose to refuse the call at first because your ego is reluctant to go outside of its comfort zone. When you've developed the courage you need you'll feel compelled to answer the call.
Once you commit to the adventure the transformation begins when you meet your mentor. A mentor is someone who believes in you and will help you build your confidence by preparing you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually for the journey ahead.
There will be challenges along the way. If you see these challenges as opportunities for growth and expansion, then you will cultivate the wisdom you need for the next part of your journey. Wisdom is valuing the whole journey while you're on it.
Midway on the journey it may seem like you've fallen into an abyss where you're confronted by the inner demons of doubt, fear, and unworthiness. There is an opportunity at this point to experience a rebirth. This is when a revelation occurs that gives you the wisdom to keep going.
At the next stage an awakening happens and your life is transformed. It could be a subtle shift from fear to love or it could be a defining moment in your life that changes your perception of reality.
Atonement comes next. This is when you realize that the choices you made from your wounded ego may have harmed yourself and others. Radical forgiveness is necessary to reach the next level of growth on the hero's journey where you learn to be compassionate.
At the final stage of the journey you return home with the elixir. This is when you share the wisdom you've acquired. The elixir can take the form of writing, teaching, a creative project, a product, a program, a business, a foundation, or an insight. However you choose to share the elixir you discovered on your hero's journey is how you fulfill your destiny.
