Talent and What's It To You?
Talent. What is it? For this blog's purposes, I am going with the online dictionary's version: "A marked innate ability, as for artistic accomplishment."
Last night I was shooting the breeze with my older son, home from college for a few weeks. I was telling him about a dream I had a few days ago. As if to make a point, in the middle of the dream, my hand reached out to touch a gold earring I had on the nightstand. It fell to the floor. I stumbled around in the dark to find it. When I did, I stared at it for awhile. It's shaped like a celtic knot and I think really quite beautiful. My very involved dream had to do with raw talent. And as I looked at the earrings, I immediately thought of two pieces of gold my son collected when he was younger. I found them and took this photo to show you. It's small, but I think you'll get the picture if you'll read on.
My dream was about raw talent. And so was my discussion with JT. The Blackhawks game had just ended and we were talking sports. JT said the sports figures he read about say that their success had everything to do with the work they put into it. I told JT what he was saying reminded me of what I thought about my earring after my own dream. The earring is so beautifully shaped and shiny compared to the gold bullion cube. Like the gold, our talents are God-given (if you believe) and a natural extension of ourselves (if that is your perspective.) It's what we develop that becomes our gift back to God, or to ourselves.
Talent. It makes me think about the "Find Your Joy" e-course that begins July 1st. During this 21 days of spirit-guided journaling, you will have conversations with your higher self about a number of things. One of them is your talents. Do you know what they are? Do you know which talents you have that are latent? Will you take the time to learn what they are?
I invite you to take the "Find Your Joy" e-course. It will help you discover a little more about yourself, your Soul, and your relationship to Spirit.
Here's more information on the course. If it speaks to you, don't wait. Register today! We begin in about a week! Take the time to find out more about who you are and what you can accomplish. Give this gift to yourself, if not for your own curiosity, give it so that the world will experience your unique contribution.
