Many of the people that I come into contact with through private readings, courses etcetera have come to me with the same problem: “I do not know what to do with my life. There is something missing, but I do not know what it is.” One thing I have learned down through the years is that my spirit counterparts, my guides, help me realise that what I seek lies within myself. What is it that lies within myself? Unrecognized genetic potential or other skills acquired as my soul has travelled through previous lifetimes.
I remember years ago when I first started to go to mediums and how they would tell me that I would be doing certain things in the future. They told me that I would be a teacher, that I would write and one day I was even told that I would be the part founder of a magazine. All those years ago I had no idea what they would talk about, because I was not conscious of these things at that time. So as I sit and write this article I realize that many of those predictions have now become a reality in my life. What was the key to discover these inner aspects that I all those years ago did not realize I possessed?
How often have I not said to people that have come to a consultation with me: Spirit say you have the potential to become that and do this. Most of the time these comments were just met with a blank look or the comments: I could never be that or do that. As the spirit world gives me these insights into the recipient of the consultation they are trying to activate something within this person that could begin a process so that they come closer to their hidden potential.
You see, there is no short cut to find this potential. Many try to get rid of this empty feeling by buying something new, perhaps changing partners or changing their jobs, but the sense of fulfilment after doing so does not last for long and they find themselves back on square one. However, some people that have been to a sitting or a course with me have returned to me many years later and told me: “What you said about the future, most of it has materialized.” Why does it work for some and not others? Some seem to stay on the same plateau forever and nothing seems to change, what makes the difference? Going into the unknown and taking a risk is a very frightening thing for many and the fear of failure is for some people paralyzing. Every so often we hear this inner voice that say: I do not have enough experience yet, I am not quite ready, perhaps I will do it next year or I have not reached the right level of perfection yet.
At fifteen years old I remember I had no hope and no real intention. I had some ideas of what I possibly wanted to do, but nothing was hard and fast. Because of my family situation without hope I was like a ship at sea with no steering mechanism. Once getting involved in “the spirit business” it was sometime useful to have these predictions made by a medium or what my guide told me.
Many of the times that opportunities have come my way it has connected me with the predictions that mediums and my spirit guides have made many years before. I can suddenly hear myself saying: “Ah, I remember a medium once saying I would be doing something like that.” So I have thought to myself: Yes let’s take a risk and find out where this will take me. Much of the time it has proved to be successful, but there is always a risk in taking a new step or accepting a new opportunity. So here I am today, doing things that years before I did not think I had the intelligence to do. By and large I have not experienced that empty feeling for years, but that is not to say that my life is risk-free.
When an opportunity comes, think about it carefully and if it feels right and if you can ignore the voice of your own fear talking to you, take a risk, the new challenge that is being offered to you. For me opportunities are messengers from the spirit world saying: “Okay, now you are ready, take a chance!”
I can honestly say that with every risk I have taken it has brought me into contact with aspects of my intelligence and potential that I did not realize I have. That has been my lesson and that is what has offered me the greatest experiences and knowledge.
I would like to hear your comments about this.
