Daily Angel Oracle Card, from the Return Of Spirit Oracle Card deck, by Cheryl Lee Harnish: Gifted
Gifted: “This card is a reminder that you are most certainly talented, gifted and skilled in a very special way. It is time to stop looking outside and comparing yourself to others. Your gifts were never intended to function or work exactly the same as another person’s gift. By looking at how others are more gifted, or better than you, you are unintentionally sending energy out to the Universe which says you are less than. This action is the very thing that is blocking your gifts from developing to their fullest potential. You cannot compare yourself to anyone else. If you see greatness in someone else, it is because you hold the quality of greatness within you. That is how the world mirrors ourselves for us, by seeing ourselves in others.
this card can also come if you are experiencing fear or apprehension about sharing your gifts with the world. Underlying this fear are beliefs and doubts about whether you are enough, or good enough. And Spirit is asking you to start addressing those beliefs immediately. Sometimes our fear of sharing our gift is the very thing that blocks us from discovering how we can best use it in service to others.
In either case, the Gifted card comes because you are doubting yourself; questioning who you are as a person or whether you have anything of value to give. Your unique gifts are very needed here on the planet. Spirit is asking that you place your doubts aside and start to cultivate self-worth and personal value. You were given certain gifts, because only you could bring them to the world in the way you do. Trust your soul’s wisdom in choosing the path you are on, and the gifts you are here to give.”*

It’s so easy to get caught up in comparing ourselves to others. When we do so, we almost always end up feeling that we need to catch up to someone else in order to be successful; or worse, we feel that others always have more than we do, are more deserving, or are somehow “better” than we are. It’s really no wonder when we look at society and the media. We are taught that people in beer commercials have better lives than we do! We are taught to worship celebrities who are train wrecks but have material wealth and perfect bodies! We are taught that people who own more stuff and make more money are better than those who don’t. We watch sports that are super competitive and who’s best players make enough annually to run; or save; a small country. It’s pretty messed up! No wonder we are afraid to show our unique talents to the world, we are so worried about the judgment, about who else would be better at it than we are and whether we are pretty enough, rich enough or thin enough to even show up!
This is the beginning of a new age… finally!! We now get to embrace our gifts and share them with the world in order to heal ourselves and those around us. There is no competition when you are leading with love. There is no comparing yourself with others when you are helping them to heal their lives. There is only love, acceptance, joy and harmony. We can breathe a sigh of relief and throw open our hearts to each other. We can accept ourselves wholly and completely. No judgement, no regret, no holding back.
This is it! Your chance to share your unique and Divine gift with the world. Get ready to shine!
