Discovering Your Inner Gifts
What comes naturally to you? What do you love doing? What are your strengths? Your answers to these questions will give you valuable insight into your highest calling in life. These inner gifts are your contribution to humanity. When you are serving humanity in a higher way you are fulfilling your life’s purpose and will feel a sense of inner satisfaction. If you are not using your inner gifts you will feel stuck and frustrated by life.
There are many factors that determine how far removed you are from your inner creativity and your purpose in life. If you took on beliefs from childhood that it’s impossible to do what you love, erase those now because these beliefs are not true. Because it’s not only possible to do what you love, it’s mandatory so you can be truly happy. If not, you will continue through life feeling unfulfilled.
Finding your talents and making them your life’s work can take many years as the puzzle pieces fit together over time. The first step is to ask the Universe for signs into what your mission in life is. If you ask, you will receive an answer, but remember you must be patient. You must grow into your purpose over time and you will almost never get the whole picture at once.
“You don’t have to see the whole staircase. Just take the first step.”
Martin Luther King
That first step is to make a list of all the things you love to do. What are your talents, strengths, and abilities? You will find you are better than most in certain areas and these things combined equal your mission in life. No one else can create what you can. You are unique and special.
When you write, your list make sure you are in a calm and balanced mood. If you are tense and stressed the answers will not come. Once you have your list completed choose something that you can do that will increase your creative output.
For instance, if you love painting, you may not be able to turn that into your life’s work immediately, but you must start painting because this will expand your creative body. As you continue to paint you will increase your creativity and as that happens you will get even more inspiration and ideas of how to turn this into your life’s work.
Nothing happens overnight. You take the first step and as you continue this, you become proficient at your craft. When you look at the whole picture all at once you may become frozen with inaction. So, try and make it fun, let go of the pressure. Creativity blossoms when you have a lighthearted attitude about it.
As you continue to use your inner gifts they will expand beyond your wildest dreams and that is when you can begin turning your passions into your life’s work.
