Something I’ve been on a mission to discover lately is what my purpose is on this earth. I know I have strong spiritual gifts but being confident in what those are has been challenging.
I know I’ve felt different from a very young age. I have memories of saying “out there” things, with deep meaning, as a child. I floated around with different crowds and never truly felt like I completely fit in with any of them. In college I wrote papers on the harmful effects of fluoride in our drinking water, toothpaste, etc. Also, the negative affects Barbie has on girls body image.
I was a deep thinker. I could see behind the veil.
Looking back now, I can see that. At the time it didn’t seem like much to me. Other than feeling like I was going against the crowd at times, and I was all about that. I loved going against the grain, still do. It’s where I feel most comfortable.
I think the difference from then to now is that I have found others like me. If I had the push to look deeper into those thoughts and feelings as a child, I think I could have discovered my gifts much earlier in life. I was very much taught to stay inside a box of limiting beliefs. (also not my parents fault, that’s just how most of the world works) I wasn’t blessed with spiritual AF friends (or resources) growing up, to nudge me when I had those thoughts. So I just continued to stay inside my box. However, as an adult I have been blessed with being able to hear and listen to that inner voice, and follow her. And I have friends that can help guide me too, when I need that extra push. They get it, they get me. It’s refreshing.
I have a “knowing” about life, I’ve known that for a long time. I have predicted a lot of things that have happened in my life, big and small. I also just “know” things, without the information having been told to me. I’m only just now feeling confident enough to actually admit it to others. I also believe we all have this “knowing”. We just have to allow ourselves to be still and listen to it. I know I’m a healer and helper. I heal through the products I make. I also believe I’m meant to heal on a deeper level too. Maybe that would be through meditation? Or maybe coaching others to help them see the potential they have, and to help them build a more beautiful life?
How can I practice these gifts I have? I have no idea yet. But I’m here for it. I’ve been guided to this. I’m not about to stop now.
So if I start to post more ‘woo woo’ stuff, don’t worry. I’m just waking up to my gifts, and being vocal about it. I’m not going to hide who I am. I get one life here on earth, and I’m here to make it count.
