This article is a personal conversation I had with someone close to me. I will not name them but the individual is a very insightful young person. She has big dreams, she is intelligent and she means a lot to me. We were one day having a conversation and she began to explain to me something that had been troubling her. She explained; “If I was on a plane and it landed on a desert island, it would be useful to have a doctor, a mechanic, a hunter etc.
"But I do not know where I would fit it and I realised that I am actually no use to society”
Her view of herself shocked me. As I mentioned she’s a bright young girl, insightful and has given me advice on many of occasions. She is wise beyond her years so this troubled me that she felt this way. It saddened me that this amazing young person did not put as much value on herself as say she would someone else. But I knew that I had in fact felt this way at some point. A lot of teenagers do. A lot of adults do. But it is important to realise that we each have gifts that have been bestowed upon us that make us all unique and special.
So I asked her to imagine the reasons why people can lose their minds on a desert island. They are cut off from society. Now the girl in question is an amazing story teller, she writes stories and tells stories and has a real ability and talent in this field. I asked her why peter pan took Wendy to neverland? To tell stories! Stories have shaped our societies, they have offered comfort and support to thousands of people and they can help us to understand the world in which we live. She hadn’t realised that her story telling gift is paramount to humanity and would be an asset to any desert island situation. The reason I bring up this subject is that how many of us do not realise our full potential and our qualities and gifts?
Through my conversations with my angels I have realised my own potential and instead of fearing it or doubting it I know embrace and enjoy it. Each of us if found in the desert island situation would have individual talents that would aid the rest of the group. Some of us are natural counsellors some of us are healers. Some have the ability to make people laugh or to reassure with their gentleness. Some of us are natural born leaders, and some are great diplomats. Some of us could offer guided meditations and some could offer motivational talks. Some of us are good hunters and could provide the group with food; others could provide the group with shelter.
Whatever our individual talent no matter how small it seems is important. If we think back to the table incident I wrote in the importance of feeling article in which I learnt that hurting my foot on the table I had been ignoring was a metaphor for ignoring life’s problems, we discover that the smallest of lessons may be the most life changing. This is the same with talents and qualities no matter how small you may think your unique gift is, do not underestimate yourself.
Angels often communicate with us through inspirations. We have each had ideas that have sometimes seemed to steam from nowhere. Writing even was a reoccurring idea that played on my mind. I ignored the idea for a year but during each meditation Angels nudged me to write, and my Angel cards repeatedly showed me the card “brilliant idea”. The reason I ignored this idea was that I did not trust in my ability to write. I struggled through university to write my assignments and my dissertations word count was short. I believed that my dyslexia held me back in some way as I always struggled to put my thoughts down on to paper. My spelling was atrocious and I deeply believed that I was not capable of doing such a task as to write. But this thought would not leave me. Until one evening I was lying in bed and words filled my head, I grabbed a pen and wrote. That was the first chapter I wrote but the words filled my head one after the other. I realised how easily the words began to flow, and took this as confirmation that this was something that I had to see through until the end.
I didn’t doubt my writing abilities after this. When I give an Angel cards reading I do not question the messages that I relay because I know they come from a place of truth and love. The same goes for writing, it comes from an honest reflection of my conversations with my Angels, and gatekeeper. That does not mean to say this is my life’s mission to be an author but it is a step that I have been guided towards.
You must never doubt your own abilities, especially if you feel your ideas come from the divine source or your Angel’s and Arch angels. They give your these ideas because they know that you have the ability to carry them out. Your Angel’s can see your full potential even if you sometimes cannot, and the more you trust the more you will develop that unwavering faith within yourself. As well as mini tasks these ideas can also offer us lessons for our own personally spiritual growth. The Angel’s aim is to help us achieve all that we can be, and we must realise this power within ourselves.
Everything we need is available to us; everything we hope to achieve is within our reach if we only give ourselves the credit that our Angel’s do. They see us as perfect beings, they see us as light and they only hold love for us. They encourage us to trust in ourselves so that we can become closer to our higher self, our enlightened self.
