Since this is a personal blog, I hope you’ll indulge me on this post, which will get quite personal but only because I think what I have to say might help to free some people from the bondage of living for the acceptance and approval of others.
I am a light worker, and I have had aspirations of being a spiritual teacher/coach/guide for quite awhile but I have been sheepish (afraid) about owning that and stepping into my purpose. I have been playing so small you might need a microscope to find me. It’s all because I have been cowering in fear behind the question, “What will they say? What will they think of me?” In response to that I can now say, “I don’t really care anymore!”
Last week I turned 45, so I had a birthday reading done by the fabulous Tanya Melendez aka, the Tarot Life Coach. She basically confirmed what I’ve been feeling for awhile now. She said that I am on the right track; that I am in a wonderful place of opening and allowing. She said that it is time for me to stand in my power, to trust and believe and to stop fearing the, “how.” Tanya also said that I need to remain open to giving and receiving and that I should be mindful of the law of circulation.
Then I received an invitation to have a ‘Virtual Skype Tea,’ with spiritual/business coach Therese Prentice. We met yesterday on the phone and she spoke into my life in a powerful way. She told me that I had amazing gifts that I needed to be sharing with the world, and that every day we don’t share the gifts we came to bring we are responsible for the suffering of those we are meant to serve.
In essence, in the past week I’ve been broken open. I am coming out of the closet that I have been hiding in and I am ready to do the work I am supposed to be doing. Since I’m still not exactly sure what that will look like, I will be taking some time to meditate and pray. Therese reminded me that all I have to do is say, “yes” and the next step will be revealed to me. I am making myself available to the Universe, I am an instrument of God ready and willing to do that God says to do.
The moral of this story is, if you are someone who has spiritual gifts, who feels like you have a calling but you’re not sure what it is, don’t sit on it. Pray about it. Seek wise counsel, and then follow the leading of the spirit. My heart has felt so light since I’ve given up resisting my gifts. I am grateful for the faithfulness of Holy Spirit, which has been a comfort to me, guiding my steps and placing the right people in my path at just the right moment.
