Did you know that every person has an equal amount of negative qualities about themselves as they do positive qualities? These numbers have to be equal. You can’t have one without the other. They go hand in hand. Did you further know that you can take a negative quality and ‘flip it’ into a positive. WOW! What an amazing feeling, isn’t it? Here is an example…. I am OVERLY SENSITIVE. I hate this about myself. I take things too personally, I am very hard on myself, and I feel let down quite often. Now let’s flip it and turn it into a positive. I LOVE so deeply. I love BIG! So you see I can’t love as big as I do without being overly sensitive. When I look at it this way it makes me embrace the fact that I am overly sensitive. When I was younger I used to get so mad at myself for caring so much. I would tell myself to just get some tough skin but as I have grown older I have come to appreciate this quality about me. Because of this I am able to touch other people in ways many cannot. I have often been told by friends that they wish they could love as big as I do. I love without condition, I love selflessly, it is pure. I am currently in the process to write down all the negative qualities I think about myself so then I can ‘flip’ them. How Empowering?! I encourage you all to do the same and see what you come up with. Your energies about your own self-worth will change and allow more self-love to shine through. It isn’t as easy as it sounds though. It will take effort. You may get discouraged and want to give up. If this happens simply just take a break and come back to it. It doesn’t matter how often you need to come back to it, what matters is that you are doing it. You can also take it one step further and share it with a loved one. For me the feeling of connection plays a powerful role in me ‘Doing the Work’. If I know I am going to share it with someone I am more apt to finish. Not to mention having the extra support and encouragement is priceless.
I get told very often I am too intense, too emotional, too sensitive, too much for people. I now LOVE all of these qualities about myself. They are all my core gifts. They are what separate me from the crowd. I chose to no longer try to ‘fit in’ with the crowd but to pave my own path. My goal in life is to speak to as many people as I possibly can and to touch as many lives and hearts as I possibly can. These core gifts are where my passions stem from. I wouldn’t be able to be a passionate motivational speaker, spiritual empowerment coach or psychic without these characteristics. Realizing this didn’t just happen over night. It was a day by day process. This process consisted of falling down quite a few times in order to see the light.
What are your core gifts? What are your passions? What excites you? If you aren’t aware I encourage you all to dig in deep and find out. When you look deep into your soul and listen quietly to your thoughts without ego that is where you will find them. Each and everyone of us has core gifts. We all have a spot in the Universe that has our name on it. No one else can take that spot. So get in tune with yourself and get moving towards your spot. It is there for the taking.
