Questions of Destiny

Does your life have a purpose above and beyond the usual goals of human life (health, happiness, career, children, fame, wealth or whatever)? If so, what is the purpose of your life here on Planet Earth? Have you ever thought about it?
Do you believe in destiny? And if you do, do you believe that destiny is participatory (includes free will) or that it is written, as they always say in the movies?
I do believe in destiny, that we're all here for a reason. I believe in participatory destiny, that each of us co-creates our own destiny by the choices we make every day. I also think that each of us has to contend with some chunk of predestination. For example, individuals born into wealthy families have every privilege at their fingertips, which provides a lot of wiggle room in which to interact with destiny. Being beautiful definitely helps open the door to more possibilities, as does intelligence, talent, charm and of course good health. Open minded parents, good teachers, good friends all help provide the opportunity to interact with destiny. I could go on, but you get the idea.
Some people are able to make intimate contact with personal and transpersonal destiny even in the most constrained life circumstances. Others seem disconnected from their soul's purpose even though they've been given every opportunity. Clearly it isn't all about privilege, intelligence and beauty.
Sometimes, through trauma or illness, or for reasons no one can understand, even the best connected people lose track of their soul's purpose.
The healing modality I'm learning is about strengthening a person's connection to the soul's purpose by recovering something from the underworld that was lost, followed by re-establishing connection to the midheaven, the angle in natal astrology charts that points to each individual's star of destiny. The treatment is an alchemy that stirs what was lost into a matrix of starlight. This elixir is then carefully ensouled into the physical body. It's a lovely treatment, so gentle and so powerful.
So what should I call it? Soul Reunion? Soul Revival? Soul Recovery? All of those names sound like church events or R&B band names. The process is getting clearer every day, but what to call it?? What do you think?
