Use your gifts… or lose them
What a week! The YourPurpose.com team witnessed 30 IASHA members recommit to their Life Purposes publicly as they exuded enthusiasm, awe and love! There is a profound new energy of urgency and passion in the air. Can you feel it?
At our recent annual IASHA (International Association for Scientific Hand Analysis) meeting, some of our members made the trek to meet live and in-person in Los Angeles, California, to learn new hand data and forge deeper relationships. For our IASHA members who have been reading hands with passionate continued devotion, they received their Level One Certification for understanding how to identify Life School, Life Lesson and Life Purpose plus over 100 pairs of hands read. Bravo to our new graduates!
During the meeting, Pamelah Landers, my co-leader, and I, did live *hot seats* for each member, combining Life Purpose with Gift Markings from the hands. This led to some extraordinary downloads. What I didn’t expect was for the members to return the favor for Pamelah and me! It was a stunning revelation to discover how we are seen by others – and what is possible when we allow in and truly RECEIVE the gifts others have to offer.
I discovered something extraordinary about my own hands that may be of use to you in using your own gifts. I’ve tried to crystallize what I discovered in three simple steps.
1. Is your Life Purpose complicated or simple?
Of course, you’ll need to have a hand analysis session to be able to answer this question with technical accuracy. My Life Purpose is “simple’ because all of my fingerprints are the same, except for one. Your Life Purpose is contained in your fingerprints, which do not change. The lines in the hands can and do change over time.
My Life Purpose is essentially Love + Spiritual Teacher + some “Business” (that solo fingerprint I mentioned earlier) thrown in for good measure. So I’m on Earth to Teach People the Business of Love. I’ve been told over and over again I am here to carry and share the “Christ” energy. When I heard that, I said, “Christ?! You’re kidding, right?”
My clients tell me, my mentors, my parents, my sister, my team, blah, blah, blah. I keep saying, “You’re kidding right?” They say “No, we’re not.” Hey, I may sometimes think I’m the second coming but now my hands confirm it. Ha ha! Hey, we have to have some blasphemy here or I will jump off a bridge from this responsibility! Christ, if he can hear me, is laughing. He was no dummy!
Of course, I’m not the only person who is here to carry this energy!!! My hand analysis co-leader and co-facilitator, Pamelah Landers, as well as a good number of my clients, have similar fingerprint patterns and are charged with the purpose of stimulating and reviving LOVE on planet Earth in all of our dealings, from the personal to the public, from the minor to the major. Maybe you are given this purpose, too?
Then again, you may have a complicated Life Purpose, made up of many different components, such as our VIP Mentoring Client, Susan Jacobi, who shares her testimony in today’s issue. Her Life Purpose is “Successful Visionary Messenger in the Spotlight.”
If you have complicated purpose, like Susan (you can read up on her complex purpose in our Client Raves section) - lead with your complexity. AIM for a big, complex problem to solve or you will be quickly bored. If you have a simple purpose, lead with simplicity so you and your clients don’t get overwhelmed.
2. How MANY Gift Markings do you have?
I have 12 gift markings and Pamelah has 13 – out of a possible 18! Most people have NONE. Our clients typically have two or more, with about 20% of our clients matching the general populace, with none. Now, before you get your knickers in a knot about whether or not you have gift markings, keep in mind that Steven Spielberg and many other accomplished people also have zero gift markings. People with few or no gift markings lack the distractions gifts can cause and thus, can move rapidly toward their goals.
Good news? You are gifted. Bad news? You are scattered, because if you don’t use your gifts, the gifts exact penalties. For example, if you are called to the spotlight to experience fame and fortune in the arts but you don’t get your gift out there, you will stay paralyzed by the fear of rejection and your stage-time will pass you by.
3. Use Your Gifts – Using the BEST Business Model for YOU!
No matter how many gifts you have, I recommend you write down three things you just LOVE doing. Personally, I love dancing, channeling and shamanism. I have realized that if I use my gifts to do the things I love, I can incorporate that into my spiritual teaching business with great ease, rather than doing what I think I “should” do.
The issue I see for many entrepreneurs in the healing arts is that they compare themselves to what others are doing without accounting for the above simplicity/complexity dynamics. If you are a simple fingerprint/simple palm person and attempt a complex fingerprint/simple palm approach, it will feel ‘off’ to you and you will likely blame yourself for the failure, rather than having your business model support your natural style and approach to life.
Your Purpose Mentor’s Challenge: First, determine if you have complex or simple fingerprint patterns and palm markings. Then, work with your mentor to create a business model that suits who you are, rather than what you see is working for others. It will only work for you if it matches with how you are wired by nature!
