Gadzooks! Eureka! That’s genius!
Have you ever been given advice or learned something new that was completely mind-blowing to you? Have you ever found an invention that you thought was genius? Have you ever realized something that you found to help you and in turn felt like shouting Woo Hoo!?!
My life opened up in sparkling rare form when I began my journey spiritually. I realized the genius in simplicity, kindness and love. I had always known that I thought differently than others around me. I saw things that others missed. I had a knowing that I couldn’t explain why or how I knew what I knew.
For example, back in the olden days before caller ID or even message machines, I often had a feeling just before the phone would ring and I would often know who it was. My family laughed when I told them, disbelieving my gift. So after awhile, I just stayed quiet. I didn’t try to expand the gift of knowing. Instead I put my intuition on a shelf and let it get dusty from non-use.
I also experienced deja vu from a young age and would recognize strangers’ faces or maybe even their souls, but not be able to place how I knew them. This caused unrest in me when I felt darkness in them. But how do you explain that to others without sounding crazy or fearful?
It’s just in the last few years that I have begun to re-emerge by allowing my gifts to blossom again. Feeling safe to do so has done wonders for the expansion of my spiritual toolbox. Finding like-minded people has helped too. I am pretty much an open book when given the opportunity to shine so I have begun to show myself a bit more slowly.
Empathy comes easily to me, probably I have too much empathy if the truth be known, by giving more than the chances needed to others who may not have deserved them. Seeing how they felt when duality was evident has caused me much pain. I have always wanted to see the good, the essence of good in people. Forgiveness for myself and others has been healing to me. I am not a perfect being though. In a few situations, I’m still rough around the edges on certain points at this juncture in my life. But, time is healing my wounded soul.
I enjoy bonding with others who are courageous enough to be vulnerable and to allow their heartlight to shine. Closed-minded people who hold superficiality above all do not interest me. It is with love and light that I surround myself now.
And that to me, is genius!
