You will be tested now that you are aware that spiritual gifts exist. You cannot run, it will come knocking on your door again. Your gifts are a calling from the universe for you to stand up and assist in the world. Someone needs your gift and they can’t get it until you start to create with what you have.
You are reading this blog post because the universe tapped me to start using my spiritual gift to become a spiritual life coach. I didn’t set out to be a coach, I tried to ignore the calling but it wouldn’t go away. One night a thought came to me that someone needed me in this world. I asked the spirit to show me the way and it laid out only one step. It wouldn’t give me any more steps until I actually did something with the first step.
I made all kinds of excuses because my life was busy and I was successful in the eyes of the world. I wanted to do what I wanted to do and coaching wasn’t part of it.
I had experienced a lot of difficulty in my life with my first wife. I went through many years of watching her battle with Lupus. When she died I thought my life was over, what made me continue to fight was my daughter. I was mentally exhausted… I just wanted to have fun and forget about the bad times. The longer I ran the harder my life got forcing me to come back to face my calling.
There were multiple signs of people coming to me telling me their life problems. I thought it was because I was a good listener and finally someone told me that I offer a different perspective. That’s when the inner voice came to me again, “do what I told you to do”.
You have to take the first step, even if you are scared or tired – that’s the test.
The more you run, the more the universe pushes you. Things will start to go wrong in your life and it’s there to get you to do something. It’s going to be very uncomfortable but you have to do it. Stop asking people around you what they think you should do. You already know what to do, that’s why the knowledge of spiritual gifts found you. Today you must decide to do something with the gift. Even if you suck at trying to use it the first time – keep trying until you get better. When you think that you suck, you will be good enough to make a change in someone else’s life.
