Embracing My Power, Thankful for This Gift
I have to tell you, doing readings for people has been fun!
For years, when I would get messages for people, I would hesitate about sharing those messages, for various reasons.
One of the reasons was the fear that the person would likely think I was crazy.
Another was that I might be wrong.
Yes, of course, I often knew a message was for someone else because I felt a particular urge that I must tell the person something when I got the message. But as soon as that message was gone, eep! That’s when ego came in, telling me that people would think I was crazy, that I was wrong, that I had misinterpreted the message … or any number of things.
Doubt after doubt filled my head.
But then, once I said yes—actually, more like Yes!—to the invitation that the Universe extended to me, once I agreed to work with a mentor to develop my intuitive abilities, my hesitation was gone.
I still get doubts, but after the fact. Hours after a reading, I might think, Oh my God, what was I thinking?! How could I say that to someone? That was rude!
As I’m beginning the reading, too, I sometimes have doubts: What if I can’t do this today? What if I’ve been deluding myself all along?! But then I find my center, my calm, and I tap in to the “silence” in which I speak with my guides. All fear and doubt melt away.
Sometimes it’s challenging; quite often, because I’m still new at knowing that I’m communicating with other people’s guides, I encounter something I’ve never encountered before.
Rather than being put off by this, though, I remind myself that this is the way my guides are teaching me just what I can do. This new thing may not be easy, but I can do it, with a little bit of adjustment in the moment. Afterward, I feel exhilarated for the experience, knowing I was successful. Every time I finish a reading, I thank my guides and, almost breathlessly, like a kid getting off an amusement park ride, ask, “When can we do that again?!”
When the doubt begins to creep in afterward, I get feedback from a client that I was “spot-on”: my guides’ way of showing me that I need to keep trusting in my abilities—in our abilities to work together. Now, every night when I offer my prayers of thankfulness for my children, husband, and parents, I also offer my thanks for this path that I have finally decided to walk, for this gift of intuition. It certainly hasn’t been an easy path to get to, but so far, I’m loving every step.
Thank you for being part of my new path!
