Along my journey, I’ve learned that I’m definitely not the only one on the path to understanding my spiritual experiences and gifts. There are lots of people out there struggling with the “what do I do now?” question lurking in their heads. Most if not all of them are afraid to embrace their gifts let alone believe in them. I don’t blame them. Truly taking on your spiritual abilities is scary and there are a lot of unknowns. After many talks with others like me, I’ve realized that there are many of you who might want to know how I handled the common fears you might be having about exploring your spiritual gifts. So, I’ve narrowed it down to a few of the top concerns and I’ll tell you how I approached each one myself.
What if people think I’m crazy? Do your best not to worry about what others think. No matter what, there will always be people who have negative things to say. Try to only be concerned about the people who matter most, family and close friends. Feel them out before telling them about your gifts by asking them their opinions on famous psychic mediums. Then tell them one by one, when it feels like the right time. Remember, your intuition will always lead you in the direction you’re meant to go.
How will my gift affect my family? The good news is you get to decide how it will affect your family. You can embrace your gift without going out into the public. You don’t have to start a reality show or a blog. Or you could choose to share your gift with the world but, weigh the pros and cons first. Take the time to consider any negative outcomes that may arise. Figure out how you’ll manage each one before stepping out into the world. After much discussion with my husband and after lots of prayer, we agreed that helping people with my gifts was worth the chance of disapproving reactions.
What do I do with my gift? This is a personal question that only you can answer. When considering the opportunities, know that you are not limited to just giving readings. You can tap into your gifts to create art, be a counselor or a life coach. Think about becoming a writer or maybe even teach others about embracing their spiritual gifts. Open your mind to the possibilities.
When contemplating “opening the door” to your spiritual gifts, do your research. Read about other psychics’ experiences, what they suggest and don’t suggest. Don’t follow any one person blindly. Find as many people to learn from as possible. Don’t forget to pray and meditate. Ask God for guidance and follow your intuition. Best of luck on your adventure!
