Gift Giving

You have innate gifts which you were entrusted with when you came to this planet. This is a fact that society tries to downplay. Because how crazy would that be? To have a world filled with empowered gift giving people, all of whom bring special gifts to the community and the world? That would be chaos. So, society keeps you small and disempowered.

Still, you have these special gifts and abilities which are packed away deep inside you waiting to be shared. These gifts are a special part of you waiting to be expressed, for what good is a gift if it is never given?

You have many special gifts and abilities, but chances are, you haven’t been empowered to even acknowledge their existence. If this applies to you, now, isn’t it time to take a look inside? Now, isn’t it time to acknowledge at least one gift? Isn’t now the best time to share it?

“Wow, that’s amazing!”

When was the last time someone complimented you on something you did? Did it seem inconsequential to you?

Often, special gifts and abilities show up, like that. You did something, said something, or told a routine story which seemed like no big deal to you, but someone else was amazed or deeply touched.

Usually, you just pass that off as no big deal or are embarrassed when someone compliments you (probably due to lack of pre-programmed self-esteem) and push it down. Yet, there it was. Your gift finding a way to express itself, and you disrespected it, or shut it down.

If you’ve experienced something, like this, then this is your biggest clue. It might not be your gift fully expressed because you’d have to fully embrace it to be able to fully give your gift. But, now, you know where to look.

Your journey in life is not just about finding out what your gift is. It includes the process of discovering it, embracing it, practicing it, honing your skills, and giving your gift away. This is how your life becomes a blessing to others as you do your part to add value to the community and make the world a better place.

Your gift and the giving of it helps to give you and your life meaning and purpose.

Your gift is your light. What good is it if you hide it? Let your light shine.

You were not sent here to save the world because the world doesn’t need saving, but you were sent here to share your gift and make the world a better place.

It’s not uncommon to have a negative response to hearing that you have a unique purpose and gift to share because you’ve been made to feel unworthy. You must let go of this weight which is holding you down, else the social engineers win by devaluing you and keeping you complacent, small, and more easily manageable (controlled).

If the social engineers succeed, they continue to rule the world of fear.

Don’t let them win by making you afraid to be all you were intended to be. It may have worked before, but not now.

If you, and the rest of us, embrace our uniqueness and share our gifts with fortitude, the world expands, humans continue to evolve, and at some point, the world of fear is no longer sustainable, giving way to peace, love, and living in harmony. This is the only idea which strikes fear into the hearts of social engineers. To them, not being able to control you and the world with fear is utter chaos to them, and there is no profit in a truly free and expansive world for them.

You are not the only one with a special gift to share. There are others who are in the process of gift giving. Seek them out. Share your gift with them and encourage them to share their gift with you and others.

If you meet others who do not resonate with this message at this time, do not judge them. Bless them. They are on their own journey, maybe this is not the time for them to be actively gift-giving. Love them. Allow them to make their own way for they are only doing the best they can with what they have, as are any of us, and we’re all in this together.

Today, now, you are claiming your divine birthright. You are a child of The King, the Creator of the universe. This day marks the beginning of a new dawn.

It’s time to live, love, and shine your light.

Today, now, you are living your life of light in a darkened world in concert with others stepping out in faith, shining their light and the darkness is fading, thanks to your gift giving and shining your light.

Will You Do It?

You have a dream. You can do it. Will you do it? That’s the question.

Occasionally, someone crosses my path and I am empathetically drawn to him or her. I can see his or her potential and I sometimes get lost in the fullness of the vision. On rare occasions, I reach out and invite this person to join me in the performance of my mission because I can see the synergistic relationship between our combined missions. Sometimes I jump the gun.

My vision of his or her potential is so clear, that I overlook the current status he or she is in along his or her life’s journey. If he or she is not ready, willing, or able to fully embrace their individual purpose, message, passion, and mission yet, then I am doing him or her an injustice my presuming they he or she is fully engaged or capable participating in this time in space.

Everyone is on their own path, doing the best they can with what they have, and there is no reason to engage when the timing is not right for you. Only you can know when you are in the right place at the right time to fully embrace your higher calling, and only then, will you know the answer to, “will you do it?”

Will you do it?

Sometimes it’s when you’ve had it up to here (as Popeye the Sailor might say, “That’s all I can stands and I can’t stands no more!”), other times you might have been just waiting for the appropriate bandwidth in life to have the time and space to dedicate to living your own life to your highest and best potential.

There are others who have a pretty good idea what their life’s purpose is (may even know precisely what their divine assignment is) and have decided never to engage in it fully.

I owe a huge debt of gratitude to Mark Victor Hansen who taught me to work with people and clients in lockstep fashion. Previous to Mark’s coaching, I could get so excited about someone else’s possibilities that I’d sacrifice everything on his or her behalf, only to find out later, that he or she had no intention of following through on fulfilling his or her life’s purpose.

Until Mark’s diagnosis, I would passionately overextend myself, even put myself in harm’s way, allow myself to be drained by emotional vampires, exploited by sociopaths or psychopaths who would seek to exploit my naivety and enthusiasm.

These days, my ministry is far more streamlined, I have staff and friends looking out for me and I am more cautious and disciplined. I realize now, that I cannot want something for you more than you want for yourself.

I will fully support you and walk with your hand-in-hand step-by-step toward you accomplishing your goals, realizing your dreams, achieving your highest and best, living your best life, and making the world a better place, but I will not do it for you.

I show you how, and help you do anything you want, but you must be motivated, willing and capable of doing the work necessary to bring your vision to fruition.

If you think you’re ready to go forward with all you’ve got, then I’m ready to go with you. You could do this on your own, no doubt about it, but together we could rock this thing.

Call me.

Everything Happens for a Reason

Everything happens for a reason and the reason is you. For without you, would any of this, anything you could possibly witness or experience on this planet, exist at all. This was all, all of creation, created for you.

On the surface, to even think about all of this being created for you seems a bit beyond your cognizant reach, yet you (yes, you) are God’s eyes and ears. You are here to witness creation, all that it is, from an experiential point of view that only you could provide.

Your experience here, along the journey you travel, is unique to you and your experience, and no one but you could survive and thrive in the life you have lived, and the creator is experiencing your life with you in lockstep fashion.

The creator and the greater part of you sees and feels everything you go through in this life, though you, in your physical three-dimensional form, are for the most part ill-equipped to see your life from the perspective of source.

From the perspective of source, there is no time as we know it, and all is known as it could be known as your life has unfolded and will continue to unfold. From this vantage point of clarity the landscape and meaning behind all things, the utter precision and intricate harmonies of all things is perfectly clear.

You, before you came to this planet, were endowed with a divine purpose which includes your unique message which you chose to share with the world. You also possessed your own individual passion, those things in life which you are enthusiastic about, excite you and give you the energy to accomplish your mission in life.

In opposition to your purpose, message, passion, and mission (pmpm) are the people, principalities, and powers who run the social construct and attempt to control and manage our planet and its inhabitants.

These oppositional forces do not want you to have any knowledge of your purpose-message-passion-mission because if the people were to each embrace his or her calling and live their life accordingly it would result in chaos for the powers that be and the controlling an empowered population would be impossible. The ruling regime would no longer be able to function.

The “powers” program our minds via social engineering and by forced medication through the food we eat, air that we breathe, the water we drink, and the medications we voluntarily (or involuntarily) avail ourselves to, effectively prevent us from being aware of our own divine purpose in life.

Even though from birth we are keenly aware of it, by the time a child reaches the age of six or seven, any knowledge of it has been squashed. Even so, the embers of that part of you remains, striving to be revealed, embraced, and released.

Everything Happens for a Reason

You are the reason everything happens for a reason. Everything that happens to you, to someone else, or in the world around you, harkens to that inner part of you which has been squelched and all but snuffed out, giving you the opportunity to call upon your unique gifts, talents, and special abilities which are your birthright.

You have a unique story that only you can tell. I met a newspaper reporter from Salem who said, “There are 100,000 people here in Salem, and everyone has a unique story. Our paper, and I want to make sure every one of them gets documented and recorded.” A lofty goal, indeed, but he (and his paper) was on to something. He was right. Everyone is a hero, a walking miracle, and so much more; a powerful influencer with incredible insight, a purpose in life to share their message with passion and fulfill their life’s mission. Some call it, “Destiny.”

There is a unique and heroic story in you which encompasses all the experiences of your life. In fact, it is the best story ever told. You may not be able to see it all until your life has run its course but after your race is run all things become clear, or you can embrace that part of you now, and begin looking at your life and everything that happens as being in divine order.

The intention of the social engineers to keep a constant barrage of information, situations, and circumstances which confuse you, overwhelm, or make you feel helpless are all part of the social engineering process, to make you believe there is nothing you can do. The flow so constant and unrelenting that it would be next to impossible for you to have the time or attention to stop and look inside yourself for the answer, to understand that you are either an integral part of the answer, or you’re being the solution was your destiny all along.

In this respect, there is no judgment for any of us, for we all are just doing the best we can with what we have. Though, every now and then, one of us awakens to our life’s PMPM, what happens then?

We see these people, recognize them for breaking through to the other side, embracing all they’ve been endowed with and helped to change the world. Some of them we read about in historical documents, or hear about them in the news, while others continue to grow, evolve, live better lives, and make the world a better place with little recognition or pomp and circumstance.

People are awakening at an increasing rate every day and are breaking out of the social construct, continuing to evolve, and affect the world at large. These people know they are the reason all things happen, and they are doing something about it, even if you cannot see the results directly.

If you can step outside of yourself briefly to review the things that have happened in your life, can you recognize that everything happened for a reason? Didn’t every challenge or unexpected circumstance change the direction of your life, even if in the slightest degree, enough to move you closer to something better? Or if now, didn’t you feel something inside you rising up with the desire to do something about it?

Everything in your life that happens to you or around you is either leading you to something better or calling forth the restrained/ignored/denied hero within you which is eager to be acknowledged, embraced, and released.

Now you know everything has led to this moment.

Is something happening to you right now?

If so, is it leading you in a different direction?

Welcome it.

Or, is it calling forth your inner hero?

Let this part of you emerge.

Could it be both?

Now is the time to realize,

Everything happens for a reason

and the reason is you.

 

Embrace Your Passion

You have a fire burning inside you; a desire to tell the world something of grave importance, an idea to present that will make the world a better place, you have no choice, and you either have to let it out or put it out.

Even as that fire burns, the less attention you pay to stoking the fire to keep it ablaze, the more it diminishes, and left to itself, it the flame will eventually burn out.

You might think that you’re not good enough, smart enough, educated enough, old enough, young enough, brave enough or worthy to take on such a project, for if you dared to utter that which burns inside you, and you were met with resistance, you would be crushed. Life has probably taught you that on already.

You’ve found a good enough place in life where you have a job, a place to live, some family and friends… Sure, things could be better, but on the other hand things could be so much worse and you think, “I’m not that bad.” And that’s what you settle for.
The media does a good job of giving yourself much worse circumstances to compare your plight to. When comparing to those who are much worse off, you feel somewhat better about eeking out your basic life which leads to nowhere.

Still, every once and a while, the urge to do something to make a great contribution to the world wells up inside you, and the more that it happens, the easier it gets to push it away, hide in under a bushel, ignore it, and it will go away.

Just disregard it as childish daydreaming. You were warned of that as a child, now you’re an adult, you have no time for such foolish ideals.

Yet, inside you remains a huge storage facility full of gifts, tools, talents and special abilities, which may pop up occasionally and shine for a brief moment while at work, in a crisis, or a special occasion. But this vast cache of treasure is otherwise underutilized or disregarded altogether; more childish foolishness.

You are okay with your job, but not satisfied. There is little pride in being basically just an assembly line worker or cog in the machine, or a sheep in the field. In fact, that drudgery is not only at work, but you find un-fulfillment all around you, at work, at home, in your community. It’s just the same ol’ same ol’, on and on, every day, ad infinitum.

Why not consider this?

The next time you have a free moment, create something, talk to someone about what deeply moves you, find a way to release some of that passion in your life.
If you look at your life, even if you have a full time job, you have excess hours that are spent idly. Why not turn this time into opportunities to express yourself and exercise your special gifts, talents and abilities?

These precious moments are your chance to stoke the fire in you about the things you are passionate about. Even if it feels awkward, at first, start with just a few minutes every day. And keep building on those minutes, until you get to an hour, a few hours, as many as 8 hours or more are just waiting for you to capture them, to achieve your highest and best, and make the world a better place.

You came to this planet with a message and a purpose. They will always be itching at your attention to be engaged in and released. Sure, you can bury them, like you have in the past, or you can bring them to life. What have you got to lose?

Embarrassment?

Okay, so you’re afraid of being embarrassed, ever been embarrassed before?

How bad was it? Did you live through it?

Compare that to answering this question: What if you’re successful?

What if you actually find fulfillment in your life, a sense of satisfaction, and how good it feels to do something good for the world that will help others in their lives, and possibly have an impact on the world looking for something better than the troubles, tragedies, fear, or sense of worthlessness they’re struggling with on a regular basis?

You have some fear. We all do.

Try this little personal exploration project. Make three lists. One list of all the things you are good at. The second list jot down all the things you like to do, activities and things that bring you joy. On the third list, delineate all the things that make you feel like you’ve accomplished something, give you a sense of meaning, value or purpose.

The things that appear on all three lists? These are the major clues to your calling, especially if they resonate with your hidden treasure chest of skills and abilities that your kept locked away.

Sound scary?

Okay, so what.

You’re only starting by dedicating five minutes a day, then when you feel comfortable with that, try 10 minutes, and keep going until you’re on your way to empowering yourself as a force for good in a world that need you, to hear your message, to feel your presence.

This is your time.

The time is now.

True Happiness via Your Gift

The most sought after state-of-mind is that of happiness. It is not uncommon for people to fill the void left by unfulfilled happiness with the mad-dash for keeping up with the Joneses, sexual promiscuity, obtaining the latest technological appliance, high-fashion apparel/accessories, cosmetic surgeries or attending expensive galas, all in the effort to achieve the elusive feeling of happiness.

If you’re like most people, you may be thinking that you’re unhappy but you don’t know why or what it is you want to do with your life!

You don’t seem to have a real gift and your life doesn’t appear to have a purpose, or lacks happiness.

Happiness is not determined by what you look like or how much money you have. True happiness is knowing that God created you with special gifts perfectly attributed to you.

If you are seeking true happiness and fulfillment in your life, you must discover your, “gift.” Only by determining your gift(s), embracing and empowering your gift will you experience true happiness.

The happiest people in life are those who center their careers and activities around their gifts. By doing so, they have attracted all of the ideas, resources, people and finances that were needed to create the lives of their dreams. They experience happiness and abundance by identifying their gift(s), believing in their vision, and masterfully progressing toward the attainment of their goals and desires.

What is that thing that you enjoy doing more than anything? You can do something better than anyone else, and to experience true happiness you must fulfill your responsibility to share your gift with the world.

If you feel as though you cannot afford to follow the passion of embracing your gift(s)… This is quite opposite from the truth. By embracing your gift, and sharing your gift with the world, the universe will bless you for fulfilling your life’s purpose. By giving your gift you can earn as much money as you will ever need and bring happiness on a scale you never imagined.

Your gift may not seem very amazing or very practical to you because it comes so easily to you. Be aware that your vision, or your style of communication, or the way you organize your life can become a gateway to your unique ability. Your gift can change the world, and it will change your world.

Luke 6:38…. “Your gift will return to you in full and overflowing measure pressed down shaken together to make room for more and running over. Whatever measure you use to give – large or small will be used to measure what is given back to you.”
