Your Soul Purpose on Sunday Morning

Happy Sunday Morning!
I woke up this morning to new postings on the blog with some pretty incredible people sharing about their soul purpose. While I know that I may be emotional at this time in my life, I must admit that I was weepy when I read these entries and I felt again the calling that God has on my life. What if we had the voices of 3,000 people sharing their "soul purpose"? Can you imagine the power of those words? Can you imagine the power of that book? Can you IMAGINE????????? My favortie thing to do on Sunday mornings before going to church or doing anything else is to watch my favorite program, "Sunday Morning" on CBS. It keeps me abreast of the world from a cultural, political, spiritual, and sociological perspective. I love it! This morning, I also watched "Meet the Press" and was intrigued by the commentary on the presidential political campaign. A very interesting debate and commentary and race is emerging and I am very eager to see how it plays out. One of the political commentators, Michele Norris, a prominent host on NPR's "All Things Considered," reminded us about a famous quote that "we cannot be shackled by our fears". Interestingly enough, Ms. Norris is an African-american woman and someone I appreciate and admire. Her words were profound for me this morning after the slander thrown my way as I attempt to continue to empower people and especially women who look like me. This morning I pledge that I will not allow anyone's gender, class and influence, but most important, their wealth and litigous behaviour, deter me from continuing with my calling to empower and to help people find their voice, their calling, their Soul Purpose. I will not allow myself to be shackled by their fear of what I can accomplish - of what "WE" can can accomplish. I wish you all a blessed day today, one filled with joy, laughter and peace. And remember: Do not be shackled by your fears or anyone else's, go ahead and "DO YOU".
Much love,
Nadine

After spending the last few years bailing others out of their messes, I find myself in a mess...and guess what...noone is here for me. Now my life and finances are practically ruined. And all I did was try to help family. So my soul purpose is to empower myself. Then maybe after that...I MIGHT help someone else, if I know for a fact that they won't play me, or take advantage of my kindness...

Good Afternoon Nadine and to my Visionary Sisters!

Today is a beautiful, chilly, yet sunny day here in southeast TX and I feel so good this morning! I heard an inspirational message on TV from a prominent pastor here and he said wake up each morning and say "good things will happen to me today." He said say that each and everyday. Although everyday won't be peaches and cream but stop expecting the bad and expect the good and good things will happen. I am expecting good things to happen this year. I am going to stop allowing my fears and the fears of others stop me from doing me! One of my soul purposes is to increase myself and my families survival-ability and to build a beautiful legacy for my children and their childrens, childrens, childrens, childrens..lol.. In my humble opinion, as a people we have to stop letting our children and their children start from scratch. The old mantra of "get it like I got it" is over. It's a new day. Let's live life to it's fullest because mediocrity is not in our DNA!

nise said...

I just had to share this with the community.

Survival-Ability: The ability to survive and even prosper over time regardless to circumstances, environment, conditions, or situation.

Legacy: To pass on to children values, happiness, assets, beliefs, character, culture, language, history, power, identity, knowledge, genes, health, belongings, skills, relationships etc...to pass on survival-ability...POWER

Good morning & Greetings to all:

Your entry this morning was very moving to me. Your statement about not being shackled by someone else's fear of what you can accomplish, was PROFOUND FOR me!!! Someone else mentioned in their entry about a message they heard this morning, I too heard the same inspirational message this morning about waking up each morning and saying that I EXPECT good things to happen to me. I too will NOT be shackled by someone else's fear of what I can accomplish!!! because God did not give us the Spirit of Fear!!!!

Stay Encourgaged and Expect GREAT things Everyday!!!

Hi Nadine,

My soul purpose is to glority God by following Jesus Christ's example. I believe my mission is to holistically facilitate the developmental, interpersonal, physiological, educational, professional, and spiritual growth of individuals, so they can be healthy, vibrant change agents to themselves and others.

Grace and peace,

La-Rhonda

Nadine said...

Good evening my dear friends,
The blog entries today were phenomenal and inspiring. We need to continue to uplift each other and love each other. My husband always tells me that humans make decisions from either a position of love or fear and that love and fear cannot co-exist at the same time. Let's choose love and release our fears. I know that I cannot do this without the love of a supportive community.
Much love to each of you until tomorrow, God willing,
Nadine

Hey Nadine,

My soul purpose is to help you to get those 3,000 people and to turn those 3,000 people into over 1.0 million people - WORLDWIDE.

And I know that together we can do it. We will create millionaires and change the lives of people all over the world.

Nadine, I want people all over the world to know what you have done not just for me but for so many others. You have helped to pump millions of dollars into our community and for that I am forever grateful. If it wasn't for you, I never would have had the time off from corporate to write a book or stay at home with my small children.

Tomorrow is MLK Day and as I reflect on his dream, I have come to a dream of my own. I have a FIRE burning deep inside my soul and I plan to blow that fire with every word that comes out of my mouth. And my dream is that this fire will represent a torch that will light the way for others to come and achieve success in this opportunity.

I don't even have to pray that God continues to hold you up, because I KNOW that he will, because on your life you have a God guided calling that can not and will not be denied.

And I don't know about anybody else, but my arms are too short to box with God. So for those out there that trying to come between you and your soul purpose - WELL...God's gonna handle that or them.

And remember this, when Andre Harrell fired Sean Puffy Combs, Puffy went on to create BAD BOY RECORDS and he did that not to get back at Andre, but he did it because he was living out his soul purpose. And because he was living out his soul purpose, BAD BOY RECORDS outproduced Uptown records (which is now defunct).

So continue to live on purpose Nadine. And remember BAD BOY RECORDS, because you're about to be the BAD GIRL OF THE INDUSTRY.

Lord have mercy, Soul Purpose Sisters! I visit the blog daily because of your dynamic and inspirational entries. I am so blessed and thankful that the Lord has led me to such an awesome community of E.X.T.R.A.ordinary women. Sister Toni, I too shall remember to carry that torch of which you spoke. Sisters, I will continue to take all of us to God’s throne of grace as we execute the vision he gave our beloved leader—Nadine Thompson.

msseh said...

WOW is all I can say because I feel in my heart that Nadine and Soul Purpose are about to BLOW UP!!!!

Hello Nadine,
As sat up this "Getin up Georgia Morning", I reflected on the dreams of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. He had a dream and a purpose! As I watch the Pastor Vashanti McKenzie, she said something so moving that has stayed with me. She stated "Lead, follow, or for God sake GET OUT OF THE WAY." Nadine you will lead, we will follow, and those who have the problem will GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!Stay encourage and continue to walk in whos you belong to.
We will act NOW. Now is the time to make the connection. Now is the time to MOVE!
Thank you for letting God use you for his good.

Nise said...

I am so honored and blessed to become a part of the Soul Purpose Visionary Circle! I am bursting with excitement at what God is doing and the blessings to come!

At the beginning of 2008, I had already determined that I was going to live my life according to the purpose that God had predestined for me. Before we are born I believe that God snaps a picture of us at that very moment…it is the beginning of things to come…..sort of like those old Kodak pictures...the ones where you have to lay it down on something flat and wait for it to develop. While the picture is developing, you have to be careful to not drop it or allow other things to happen to it, like perhaps the dog grabbing it and eating it.

I am that Kodak snapshot and I have not yet fully “developed” into ALL that God predestined me to be in the beginning. Many things have become obstacles in my development….attending college…getting married….having children…etc. All of these things are great and blessed because God already knew that they would happen, BUT he also knew what the finished product would look like….and I am not there.

2008 is the year of “New Beginnings” for me! I asked God to “DEVELOP” me into the person that he needed me to become….in order for him to receive all the honor, glory and praise. Then God sent me “Soul Purpose”! Coincidence, I think not!

God has planned every detail in our lives, and the moment that we get out of the way and just ask him to have his way….let his will, be ours…watch out! All the purpose and plan of God is seen and revealed in Christ. We cannot separate ourselves from the purpose in Christ. What is true concerning Him is true concerning us as we are in Christ.

Soul Purpose is not just an ordinary company, it’s a lifestyle! A lifestyle to be can shared with people from many different walks of life while helping them to walk in their purpose while we continue to walk in ours.

Will your “Developed” Kodak match the one that God predestined? Don’t let obstacles stop you from becoming the magnificent leader that God has called you to be. I believe in you and know that Soul Purpose will help you on your road to fulfilling purpose in your life.

Wishing you all a “New Beginning” with Soul Purpose!

LaTonga

msseh said...

Well said Inmalone, 07 was the year of completion, and 08 is definitely the year for New Beginnings. I receive that!!!!

Every morning I thank God for a new day because I know he is Bigger than any situation that might come my way, regardless to what it may look like, I know God has a purpose and plan for my life, and Soul Purpose is part of that plan.

Stay Encourage and Expect Great things Everyday!!!

As I read some of these responses I have to ask myself, how does this 'walking in Christ's purpose' stuff translate for those of us who are not Christians. Maybe it doesn't need translating. That's the beauty of GLOBAL purpose, of UNIVERSAL sisterhood. One's spiritual path doesn't matter (or it shouldn't). I believe everyone has a reason (or Purpose) for being on this plant.

2006 and 2007 where ruff years for me to say the least. Yet I also believe that 2008 is a year of new beginnings. One of them is changing careers (from Programmer Analyst to Massage Therapist/Body Worker). Now I get to not only actively participate in gaining and maintaining holistic health, I can help others do the same.

That is my light at the end of the tunnel.

Peace and Blessings
Namaste (The Divine in me sees the Divine in you)

I think whether you are a Christian or you worship some other higher being is definitely your preference. I don't think anyone on this blog is trying to push their beliefs on anyone else, but merely expressing how Soul Purpose relates to them personally and this blog has given them the venue to do just that...express what THEIR soul purpose is and how it relates to them.

Suffice it to say, we are all excited about what Nadine is doing and looking forward to working towards one common goal of empowering others.

Peace to you all

Nadine said...

Good morning my friends,
Each and everyone of you are an inspiration to me in the most incredible way. I believe that this journey will be a powerful one and one, that I look forward to sharing with you. I thought of this blog last night while I was at a dinner party in New York with Bob. It was one of those very swanky NY, Park Ave. dinner parties where out of 70 people we were 2 of 3 black folks present. It was a nice dinner and at the end they asked Bob if he could sing (he is a wonderful singer with a deep baritone voice). Bob chose to sing an assortment of Negro spirituals that were deeply touching and moving. Despite my personal emotional stress and tensions I decided to close my eyes so I could listen to the words of the spirituals. With my eyes closed I felt like I was in church and could feel the presence of the holy spirit around me. The song that resonated the most with me was a song about faith in the future. The words went something like this: I have made my vows to the lord, and I will carry on, I will not hold back, I won't hold, I will carry on, to see what the end will be! I thought how appropriate, I made my personal vow to God to empower Black women in my old company and I feel my calling even more strongly to carry on this calling Soul Purpose. The calling now feels larger, wider, greater, it encompasses more people and has a range that still has not been revealed to me. From your blog entries this is abundantly clear, this is a blessed community and our thoughts and feelings cannot be denied or contained. I vow to not turn back but to allow the Lord to continue to work his magic in my life because I believe and I have faith that it will work out in the end.
This spiritual reminded that we have to have faith, none of know what the end will bring, only God knows but we have to continue on our journey, on our calling, we cannot turn back, we have to move forward in faith.
Move forward my sisters, with joy, with faith, with courage, with hope, with soul and with purpose, because the end will be glorious. We are already empowered, we just need to find the courage to let it be expressed and manifest fully in our lives. Live your Soul Purpose today.
Much love to you,
Nadine

nise said...

Oh Nadine, that was very moving. I've never met you personally but I had a dream last night that I was at the launch and in the dream you unveiled the most beautiful products I had ever seen. The packaging was absolutely beautiful and the scents were out of this world. That dream felt so real. The colors were so beautiful, rich purples, fushia, gold, everything was sparkling.

I can't wait to see what the future holds.

NISE said...

Oh and Nadine, when you are going thru those stressful, emotional moments put Mary J Blige's new single Just Fine in the CD player and I guarantee you, you will feel better. That joint is hot! It gets the juices pumping and you have to move on that one. That's my new theme song. I'm JUST FINE!

mekasing said...

Hello Nadine. I was informed about The Visionary Circle and Soul Purpose from a friend. After reading your blog, visiting the Soul Purpose website and viewing other articles, I am overwhelmed with good vibes. Your entrepreneurial spirit and triumphs show others that with hard work, you can be anything that you set out to be. I feel encouraged and empowered from what is to come and I look forward to being a part of Soul Purpose.

Much love, Meka Johnson

Nadine said...

Good morning Nise and my Soul Purpose family,
This has been quite the week with tremendous successes as well as challenges. It has been quite the life lesson for me and again a real testimony to the role that our faith and belief in God will carry you through. It seems the more successes that I have in moving this venture forward the more intimidated the enemy becomes and the attacks come swiftly. All I want is to be left alone to carry on with my calling to empower people and create a beautiful Soul Purpose filled community.
I believe that Nise is correct when she speaks about crisis because this is indeed the turning point in my life. There are now frivolous law suits against me and our new community and attacks on my family all in an attempt to bully me and deter me from pursuing my dream. It seems like the idea of a black woman starting her own company which may indeed empower and change the lives of other women and more importantly women who look like her is threatening to some. It has become clear to me in my prayer life to walk away from the past and start anew. Leave the enemy with what he claims is his and start my own. I have been blessed with the mind and ability to start my own, start anew and create a new paradigm. I just ask and pray for the opportunity to build my own, in my own vision and in my own way. To return to Nise's quote, i have found my other self, the one that is calm and resilient and the one that has faith and believes in God's Will. I ask and pray for your continued support and prays especially for my family in paticular my parents who are 80 plus and my young children who have to witness the damaging attacks and legal bullying. This is indeed a life crisis but I have faith that God's Will shall be done in my life and in your lives as we continue on with my Soul Purpose.
Much love to you,
Nadine

Law suits huh. Well I always say that the greatest revenge in the world is success. So to those are trying to scare you into quitting, they're terrified that you will pass them in this industry. You must be doing something right. They will never succeed because their intent is malicious. They may even fall on their faces. Keep moving forward Ms. Nadine. Success and good fortune awaits, and the haters will have to step back and GET OVER IT.

Buy the way, I received my kit yesterday, AND had my first interview at a spa for my dream Massage Therapist opportunity. Now I'm so excited I can't stand myself.

Peace and Blessings,

Psalms 91 said...

Nadine, I am so proud of you and it would be an honor to be a part of the Soul Purpose family.

I am glad to see some "household names" Toni, La Rhonda, etc. God has truly granted favor.

My spiritual purpose and gifts I believe will make room for me in this business. My soul purpose is to heal the hearts and souls of the hurting. "If I can touch somebody today, then I have done what God has designed me to do."

I have been given a second chance to touch lives through Soul Purpose and I am excited about the transformation that is about to take place.

Psalms 91 said...

Do you know why I chose Psalms 91 as my call name? It causes you to state your claim. Spiritual darkness does not care that they are doomed to die. I am an end time warrior...that is my job, that is what I am going to die doing. While I am here on earth, my job is to fight spiritual darkness in high places and save souls. We are in spiritual warfare here. We are also a team which means that you do not have to fight alone. We are going to get through this...You are not alone. The enemy is not upset that you are starting your own business, but that half of the faithful left and his team is not as strong as before. "You have not because you ask not". They didn't ask, they stole. Don't worry about the plot of the deceiver. We have already won! Hold your head up and pray this prayer:

Father, overthrow the plans of troublemakers, scorners, scoffers, mockers, persecutors and character assassins. Expose satanic representatives and grant unto us divine strategies and tactics to identify, resist, and overcome plots and plans established for our demise; draw out your spear and stop them in their ways; let them be confounded and put to shame; let them fall by their own counsels; let them be turned back and brought to confusion; let them be as chaff driven by the wind; let the angels of the Lord persecute them; let them stumble and fall into the very destruction they have contrived for me. In the Name of Jesus!

Read: Psalm 5:10, 7:14-16, 34:21, 35:1-8, 52:5, 83:13-17; 141:10; Esther 9:25; Proverbs 26:27, 28:10; Daniel 3, 6; Matt 7:15-23; II Corinthians 11: 14-15

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING and PRAY WITH YOUR FAMILY DAILY AS I AM PRAYING ALSO.

Toni Coleman Brown said...

God is Good! And we are having amazing success. We were blessed to have Nadine on our team call where we learned that Soul Purpose has 1,000 Visionaries. Can you believe it Visionaries??? In one month we have already produced 1,000! Now imagine if each of just shared this opportunity with 2 people this month, we will launch with 3,000 Visionaries and if we keep up at this pace we can have somewhere between 12,000 and possible over 20,000 Visionaries by December and we could produce well over $6 million per month in sales.
Now I know this may seem outrageous, but like I always say "Everything Is Possible" and I believe that we can do it.

Do you believe???? Let our actions speak the desires of our hearts and may our cups run over with prosperity.

Let's do this yall!!!!

It's so good to finally be able to connect with you again, Nadine. I've missed you so. You truly have been called by HIM to help get the message out. You feed me like no other ever has and I KNOW just as good things are in store for me, they are most definitely in store for you, babe! Much love, your visionary sista-

msseh said...

Good Evening Ms. Nadine

Romans 12:19 says ....for it is written, Vengeance is mine, I will repay saith the lord!!! that's for all the nay sayers that's trying to block what God has ordained, in the end you will come out on top!!! I admire what you have done and are going to do. Know that you have alot of support so as one fellow visionary said you are not in this alone!!

Remember when the enemy tries to kill, steal and destroy, and you feel like the battle is to hard to fight, know that this only means that God is about to do a great WORK IN YOU!!!! And the enemy knows this and will try everything in his power to stop you!!! But what he fails to realize is that what God has for you no one can take that away!!

Remember THIS TOO SHALL PASS!! I am praying for you, your family and the entire Soul Purpose family!!!

Expect Great things everyday!!!!

larhonda said...

Nadine and Soul Purpose Family,

I am so overwhelmed to be a part of such a remarkable movement. Soul Purpose offers so much more than exquisite products; it offers hope, it awakens dreams, it helps to casts out doubts, and it enables sisters all over the world to start afresh. Based on testimonies, I see that God has answered so many of our prayers. I am in awe of His wonderful, working power!

In life, we seek ways to generate more income. I most certainly endeavor to do so; nevertheless, Soul Purpose has become so much more to me. I now belong to a community of beautiful, gifted sisters who have chosen to be conduits of change. I so deeply believe that the LORD will use us to build up women, men, girls and boys all over the world. I believe that families will be restored, friendships will deepen, and our communities will be revitalized. This is not sheer talk or blind faith. It’s real! How do I know? The LORD has anointed Sister Nadine for such a time as this. His anointing will destroy the yokes of bondage.

Ladies, I am soooo blessed by you. You will never know how much you have already aided in my spiritual transformation. Much love to you.

Always,

La-Rhonda

Valencia said...

Words cannot express the passion that is embedded in my soul for Nadine and her Soul Purpose vision. I was captured from the moment I first logged on to the site; then to hear Nadine's voice again on our team call after so many months ... I cannot describe the love, admiration and respect I have for this awesome woman who is kind hearted, eloquent and so down to earth! I can't wait to see you groovin' on stage again at the first Soul Purpose conference.

My Soul Purpose is to live a life that is pleasing and acceptable unto my God - to have my every word, action, and thought reflect His image.

I am exploding with excitement over the opportunity that Soul Purpose offers, especially as it relates to empowering our Native American sisters. I didn't know the history we shared with them until Nadine mentioned it on our team call last week. And, I am ready to hit the reservations!

Hope to see you soon, Lady Nadine.

Much love all...
Valencia

kingsdaughter said...

Nadine,

As I read through your post, I was reminded of the first time I saw you in 2005 in Atlanta. You stood in front of over 600 people and you poured love and purpose over the crowd like honey. Well, that love, purpose, and power are still there, only they have intensified with the fire of the battle! The honey is richer. The purpose is more . And the power is more beautiful. It's like the taste of chocolate (which is almost indescribable)only one can taste it with their eyes and heart. Just as impurities leave when gold is heated, so I see you as the gold, where all things that would have held you back from your true greatness are disappearing in the fire of this moment. Many women are with you and I believe it is with honor that we hold up your arms so that the flow of the battle will not only stop, but so that you can also flyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy!
