Amanda Frances' book, Rich as F*** is one of all-time faves. In it she quotes the Gospel of Thomas saying,
“If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you.”
This is to say, if you share your Gift with the world, it will save you. And if you don't - it will destroy you.
And it is FOR REAL.
Many days passed during my daughter Maeve's infancy where I was surviving on barely any sleep and my gift went unused, and slowly ate away at and quite literally destroyed me from the Inside out.
I truly believe people let their connections to their Souls die in these tiny increments. Replaced with substances and habits to numb that pain and self-destruction.
My Gift is writing, and Healing. I once heard it said that Writing is like a disease where you can't help but do it, and if you don't do it, that too eats at you.
And sometimes my Art is shitty, but even then, we must create shit art on the path to good art. And shit art is a sign of daily art, too. It is not a gift if you only engage when the inspiration strikes. It is a skill to be honed regularly.
I believe many people, especially neurodiverse people, are not engaging in their gifts because they haven't figured out 'HOW.' How to make it work or make it make money. Sometimes my writing lands me a $2000 sale. Sometimes a $27 sale. Sometimes nothing. Sometimes connections and support. But I am trusting it more and more.
I want to support other people in using their gifts, so they may be Saved by them.
My other gift besides writing is Healing. And I do that mostly through nutrition, supplements, lifestyle, and mindset work.
As such I am offering a kick-ass new course called the Clean Mind Program, 4 weeks for $49, 4 calls, lifetime access to the recordings. We will be talking specifically about how to use nutrition, mindset and more to hone your brain in on achieving your goals. From using your Gifts to feeling like a million bucks.
