The following is part of a Soul purpose reading with Saint-Germain. It includes astrological information and a channeling. It's been published with our client's permission.

"Dear Saint-Germain, I love the field of health and nutrition which I studied in college, but I hate the place where I'm working. It's a teaching environment, and it just doesn't feel right. I only studied this field to please my parents. I would have preferred something more artistic. Needless to say, I'm too scared to break out on my own now, and I don't have the certification I need to do counseling work. I can't take extra time away from my children to get certified because I'm a single mother. I feel so stuck. To the outside world, I look like a huge success. But inside, I'm falling apart regarding life path. I feel that these conflicts are connected with my over-eating, too. Can you help me? Thanks very much."

Saint-Germain's Message, Channeled by Alexandra for You.

Greetings, dear friend. I AM Saint-Germain. I am here, along with Alexandra and your spirit guides and friends. We are by your side – ready to talk to you, to greet you, to welcome you, and to encourage you, indeed.

Yes, it IS an important time in your life right now. We know that you’re struggling to get through it, and that you are asking for answers. But before these answers can come to you, I would like to invite you, right now, to stop for a moment and breathe with me. Breathe deeply. I invite you to breathe in life, to breathe in the joy of living, and to welcome whatever is coming your way next.


Yes, my friend. You have told us many times that you feel stuck… that you feel frightened and confused about this situation in your work life. We remind you that you have been seeking comfort and nourishment from your profession and work relationships because you were denied this in the home. There is no blame or judgment in this. It’s just information that you can use to come to a greater understanding of your situation and an eventual healing of it.

We know that you feel stuck and frightened because your work and are not nurturing you in the way that you need, deep inside. And now, you are turning to the only way you know how to nourish yourself, which is through over-eating foods that give you comfort in some way. And this is one of the main reasons, as you already suspected, for your weight gain. It’s a kind of unconscious compensation. You have gained this weight, because you need to nourish yourself with loving kindness, acceptance, and recognition for the wonderful being that you really are. And because this is not coming from anyone else around you – not from your family, or the people you work with, or those who employ you – this is causing you to fill your need for emotional nurturing with a substitute. And that substitute is physical food.

But now you are beginning to realize that this kind of comfort is not the nurturing that you seek. This comfort is just keeping you in the same place. It's neither the emotional nurturing you would like to receive from others, nor is it the peace that self-love and acceptance would bring to you. Instead, it is the false comfort of continuing along the same path… of continuing with something that is familiar to you, but not really in your higher interest. Not in your Soul's interest. Your Soul is encouraging you to break with this now, and to turn to something better.

It is necessary that you nurture, love, and be kind to yourself now, and that you accept yourself as you really are – a Child of , and also. When you are willing to accept the truth of your Core Divinity, then you will find that profound changes start taking place from the depths of your being. These changes take root and begin to seek expression in your outer world, too. And one day, you will realize that you are completely transformed.

I would like to encourage you to take this one step at a time, and not expect immediate relief or results. You are working with a process of profound inner change. If you focus on the goal or end results instead, such as immediate weight loss or greater appreciation from those around you, then you will miss the magic of the . is about process, not the end results. The outer results will come because you have allowed yourself to fully experience the inner process of change.

Yes, dear friend, engaging this process is a major part of your Soul’s for you now. And it’s something that has been neglected for many years because of the demands that were made upon you by having to serve others, while sacrificing yourself and your interests.

Now you are needing love and attention from your Soul and Higher Self. Your inner child is calling for you to allow this kind of nurturing, love, and attention. This is what it needs now. Pay attention to this inner voice.

We are here by your side, day and night, and we encourage you to put your focus on yourself. Be with yourself first. Then you will discover how your relationships and career will shift. Things will become clearer to you. You will see what nourishes you and what does not. And then you will be able to choose again. Don’t force or push yourself. Just allow your process of inner transformation to take place within the loving shelter of your heart.

This is our message for you today, my dear friend. You can feel encouraged by the changes that are taking place in your life. You've already stepped across the threshold. Take heart and be glad.

We love and encourage you, and we are there in every moment of your life.

I AM Saint-Germain.

and Job Satisfaction in Your Astrological .

Hello, my name is Dan. I’d like to tell you right away that probably the most revealing thing about Soul purpose in your chart, is the placement of the Nodes of the Moon. The Nodes of the Moon are astronomical directions in space that have an important astrological meaning – they are wonderful indicators of Soul purpose. In doing your reading, we prepared a Draconic chart alongside your chart. This brought the Nodes of the Moon into special prominence, and made it much easier to look at your Soul's intention for this lifetime.

The first thing to mention to you is that, in this lifetime, your Soul is encouraging you to consider the difference between selfless service and needless sacrifice. How might this be manifesting? Well, in this case, you may feel that your love of health and nutrition has been unnecessarily sacrificed to serve the needs of others, or to feel that you can please them. This is no longer working for you, as you already know.

In this lifetime, your Soul is reminding you that you have the ability to serve others by doing what you love to do, and it is encouraging you not to sacrifice yourself just to please others. Your Soul never asks you to sacrifice yourself, or your joy and passion for living, just to serve others out of obligation. Instead, your Soul is encouraging you to be in service to yourself first… To love yourself first, and then be unafraid to do what you love to do. It's also asking you not to capitulate or compromise on this important point, by sacrificing yourself, or your interests in order to please others.

What May Be Blocking the Expression of Your Soul's Purpose?

The field of health and nutrition has supported you in many ways. Yet, there are indications in your birth chart that when you studied this field, and now later as you exercise your knowledge of it in your profession, that you are using it as an indirect and not-completely-conscious way for you to get the nurturing and acceptance that didn't come to you adequately from your parents. You mentioned that you took up the health field just to please your parents, instead of studying something more artistic. This is part of a pattern that can be seen in your astrological chart.

Perhaps when you were a teenager and young adult, much of your needs for love, care, and nurturing – needs that could have been addressed by your parents when you were younger – were re-directed in establishing a career. And ironically, the career you have chosen is also about nurturing.

It's a profession that deals with sustenance and nourishment. This is certain. But your deeper needs for emotional nurturing have been left unattended. In fact, it doesn't matter how much you are acknowledged by your colleagues, peers, students, and parents now for your mastery of nutrition. Your needs for inner and emotional nourishment are still there. The roots of this lie in the past. Here's what I mean…

Your parents, or other authority figures in your life, may have felt challenged to give you the kind of love, support, approval, and nurturing that you needed. Then later, their insistence that you do something practical with your life, instead of artistic, may have aggravated a tendency that you already had to become anxious and concerned about your survival and well-being in the world. By deciding to comply with their wishes about what you should study, you may have temporarily relieved the anxiety you felt about feeling supported, nurtured, and surviving in the world. But now the feeling of emptiness is back again, along with the deeper need for emotional nourishment that accompanies it.

Guidelines for Aligning with Your Soul's Purpose.

At this point, you are facing powerful and life-altering inner changes. Your whole orientation toward nurturing yourself is coming into focus in a very conscious way. Whether you incorporate this into your profession or not, is a matter of choice. But the issue of nurturing is a big one for you now. Your whole life is being re-oriented around this. And as you make the adjustments, you're going to find that what you discover about yourself will influence the role you play in the world, and your career, in a positive way.

Expect powerful, radical, and transformational changes to continue during the next few years. You will handle them well. But it is a radical re-structuring and reorganizing of yourself around the issue of nurturing. Here are some important guidelines for aligning yourself with Soul Purpose, during this period:

You are encouraged by your Soul now to let the creative aspects of your mind relax into a more gentle flow – to be less devoted to success in your teaching job, and more aligned with exploring things that you are genuinely curious about. Also, please be willing to share yourself with others through real, inter-personal relationships. The academic environment where you teach, is not giving you this. Your relationships there, are to circumscribed by duty, obligation, and protocol. Also, bring your artistic sensitivity into this more – and remember to serve people with the poetic and compassionate Soul that you have. Choose to work with people who appreciate and openly acknowledge your kind heart, and let the others go their own way.

One area that you might want to consider, as a possible shift in the focus of your career, is child health and nutrition. There seem to be real possibilities for you here. Working with parents and children on matters of nutrition can help you use your knowledge. It can also let you experience the love and appreciation that flows from these parents and children because they really appreciate and acknowledge what you are doing. There is real potential in your chart to reorient your career around the health, nourishment, and nurturing of children. And they are so responsive, loving, and appreciative, too. It is unlikely to feel like anything that you are currently experiencing in the classroom.

You can explore anything that feels right to you, but this seems to be one potential to look at. And in the process of taking up this kind of career activity, you should find yourself exposed to, and healing the wounds of not getting the kind of nurturing, love, and support that you needed when you were younger.

Remember that giving to others is the hidden pathway to receiving what you need. This is an esoteric truth. Just remember that genuine giving comes from the heart. It's not about needless sacrifice, or being obligated in service to others. This is the main message for you about your Soul's purpose in this lifetime, at least as far as your astrological chart reveals it.

Would you like to know more about your Soul's plan for you in this lifetime?
Then please consider having a Soul purpose reading with Saint-Germain, Alexandra, and Dan.
