Your Mission in Life was designed for someone who
is a seeker of truth - a person who feels that something
is missing in his/her life and is seeking for that
central purpose of why we are here in the earth
at this time. In this course you will explore your
own nature: what Cayce called the "personality"
and the "individuality." You will engage
in a self-study process that includes identifying
your key talents and strengths, followed by the
formulation of a personal mission statement. You
will also devise ways to test your statement to
see if it needs to be revised. Frequently you'll
find ways that your intuitive mind has a role to
play in how you both discover and live your mission.
each individual know that it came into life with
a purpose from God. Let each individual know that
it is as a harp upon which the breath of God would
play. While all may not be as prophets or as preachers,
neither may all stand in the halls of learning as
directors of men, now that you each have your part
to do." Edgar

came from the pain of feeling that their life was
meaningless and unfulfilled. They felt discontent,
even when many things in their life appeared to
be going well. They thought that there must be "something
more" to life than what they were experiencing.

course is personally mentored by Raye Mathis. Here
is what she has written about her work with students
on this course:
enjoy mentoring the Mission in Life course because
I love seeing the students discover talents they
often never knew they had. It's fun for me to witness
their realization of why they've been born and what
direction their life needs to take. We have two
mentoring sessions by phone and I also like the
verbal, one-on-one contact with the students.
The Mission in Life course enables the student to
clarify their values,
discover their strong points and their talents,
and by following a structured step-by-step process,
explore why they believe they're here on the earth
at this time. The students seem to enjoy going through
the exercises in the workbook but they especially
enjoy having the psychic reading. There is always
something helpful in the reading and often there
will be some surprising bit of information that
the student has never thought of as being applicable
to their life direction. It is gratifying to me
as their mentor to see them begin to test their
mission statement, refining it each time they put
it into practice. Many times they discover that
they don't have to make major changes in their lives
like quitting their "day job" in order
to begin following their own personal path.
This is also a course that that the student can
return to again and again. It may be very helpful
to work through the course at different stages of
life. The life purpose can be refined as life changes
