Imagine how boring Superman would be if all he did was type at the speed of light, or Wonder Woman only having super strength without the powers of the magic lasso or the ability to fly in an invisible jet. Watching them on television or reading about them in a comic book inspired us to believe and accept that not only could our heroes do and be anything but we could as well. As a young girl I recall spinning around in the living room as wonder woman and attempting to deflect objects and energies that attempted to harm me. Then something happened; we stopped believing and trusting that like our superheros we could transcend our situations, circumstances and experiences because we are equipped with a multiplicity of talents skills and abilities seen and unseen.
During a recent conversation I was informed of a mutual friend who changed careers ,midlife, and was now an restaurateur. While sharing the person began to question the motives and sanity of our mutual friend’s decision to leave a “good job” and their qualifications to run a restaurant. I smiled and sipped my tea as I listened. Knowing that it was not out of concern but uneasiness that my fellow tea drinker was sharing this information. The reality is that many of us have reacted exactly as or similarly when we have heard news of mid-life mid-career changes. Finding it difficult to accept or witness others as they take high risks and live from their passions in pursuit of individual happiness and success.
More often than not many of us have not explored freely our innate purpose, destiny and assignment or utilize our many talents, abilities and passions. Why? because they were often minimized as a “passing fancy”, “hobby” , “not an appropriate sufficient source for life maintenance” or simply circumstances lead us into another direction. However, once we begin to reflect and evolve into your authentic self, explore your real destiny and contribution, your talents, skills and abilities along with a desire began to create and manifest what is necessary to support and secure it. Revealing the superhero in you.
We all have been honored with a multiplicity of gifts, talents and abilities although, we may not share them with everyone we encounter (superhero). We often share based on the individuals or groups capacity level and need. Just like our superhero, Clark Kent, was mild-mannered, almost unnoticeable until he needed to transform into superman.
So consider that a Pediatrician may also be a world-class violinist after-hours, or a minister. A teacher may be a baker of fine pastries and delights. The friendly cashier maybe a shamanic healer or spiritual medium. Your summer camp counselor may be a parent, lawyer or craft wonderful wood carvings. You hold the ability to destroy layers of hurt, pain, frustration and fear and revel your inner strength, wisdom and power (superhero) right inside you.
Don’t attempt to figure out, limit, control, covet, or envy the progression of others; just focus on identifying your gifts, talents and passions and access your peace, confidence, joy, harmony,success and abundance.
