Each one of us has a gift that makes us special, unique. This is the gift with which we are born, our natural illumination that guides us towards our life's path. The only difference is that some open their packages earlier than the other and in some cases some people never open their packages. Strangely enough, many a times we unconsciously/consciously know what our gift is, but we take solace in just beaming in gratification with the idea of being gifted & do nothing. We neither work to act on it nor master it. Sometimes we give in to circumstances, opinions of our loved ones, sometimes we don't develop that awareness to see the gift in us & allow it to bloom. We may instinctively know that this is what we are really, naturally good at; but because we believe in complexity and the gift doesn't seem like a gift to us, we miss unpacking it and owning it. However, the beauty is that you can own your special gift at any stage in life. Whether you want to make it your profession or hobby is completely your choice.
Have you wondered what it would look like to own your special gift and master it?! That is given to you because only you have the power to unpack it, see it's beauty & let the world experience its uniqueness through you & enjoy the power of creation. We get distracted, our personal beliefs, our thoughts, the lens with which we look at life, limits our ability to see our own gifts. When we narrow down our vision, we only see what everyone sees and slowly lose the power of the gift in us. It becomes just another thing that we carry along; dormant & waiting to be activated again.
Owning your uniqueness empowers you and fulfills you. The experience is beautiful! It gives you a sense of purpose in life. If you look at the life of the masters and all the people who left a dent in the Universe, you will see that all that they did was that they unpacked their special gift, mastered it and created miracles by giving back their learning/experience of that uniqueness back to the Universe. And that became the purpose of their life. Unlocking your gift takes you to a whole new world of exploration. It's beyond intellectual but something that you deeply love, feel passionate about. Once you discover your gift, no amount of excuses can stop you from embracing it. It's like coming home to yourself, returning to where you belong. Every guard drops, every mask drops; what remains is the realization that this is what you are supposed to make a difference with to your life & the people around you.
Whatever our intentions are, if they are fear-sourced and not love-sourced, we can never fulfill them. Likewise if we walk the wrong path, we can never master it because that would be from a space of not what we are meant to do but what we chose to do because of what we thought to be right intellectually. When you discover what truly fulfills you, you step into your zone of genius. Every path is not smooth. It comes with challenges and these are very much required because these are meant to teach us and enable us to grow in that path. When we chose the path of our special gift, we instinctively become ready to face everything that the path offers. So, my question to you is, have you discovered your special gift?If yes, how far have you reached? If not, what's holding you back from unpacking it?
Remember that you make the world special by your presence by stepping into your special gift, your zone of genius. The biggest gift that we can gift ourselves and to mankind is by owning our special gift. And I say this from deep self-awareness & transition. I had been running away from owning my own gift and now I have come home to myself by owning my special gift. I embrace compassion, authenticity, creativity, sensitivity & intuition.
