I listen to her tell me about how spiritual she is…and all her beyond-this-world happenings. I listen to him tell me about his extraordinary, other-world occurrences.
I can feel their unaware intentions behind their story telling, and the quote I once heard from Marianne Williamson comes to mind. “We’re all special, and no one is special.” (In other words – we all count.)
As I listen and listen I can feel their need to PROVE their specialness.
There’s a part of me that wants to share this insight with them and let them know… “Hey, no need, I know you’re special. How do I know? Because we’re all special…”
But…instead I decide to attentively listen so they can feel through my reflection that – Yes they count, yes their lives matter, yes they’re important, yes they’re intuitive, yes they’re Special!
Hmm…I wonder, how much time we spend trying to prove our importance, trying to prove that our lives matter. How many conversations we extol, how many certificates/degrees we obtain, how many projects we tackle, how many ‘Yeses’ we agree to, how many battles we win – how many, how many, how many!?
So much energy spent.
What if we all knew our specialness?
What if we could embrace the truth of our importance?
What if we didn’t have to prove that our lives matter?
Try it. Embrace your importance without needing to prove.
The next time you become aware that you’re trying to prove your worthiness, even if you’re in the middle of a conversation, a project, a battle, a ‘Yes-ing,’ – STOP, take a deep breath, and remind yourself that you have nothing to prove, because the truth of you is –
To question if you have Divine within you is to question where you come from. Everyone, without exception, comes from the Creation of All That Is. You may think you are less-than you are, due to outward circumstances, but you are a gift created from Love. It need not matter who your parents are, what part of the world you live in, your financial status, even your choices… be they good, or termed by you or others as bad, none of it matters… in relation to who you really are. You are a gift of love, and you are loved without question.

Friends, I don’t let a day pass without breathing in the Gift of Love I AM.
So go ahead, give it a try. Take a moment, reread the Gift of Love message and breathe in the Truth of YOU, breathe in the Gift of LOVE you are. Breathe it down to your toes. Fill up with it!
Let’s not waste our energy trying to prove our worthiness. Let’s remind ourselves of our Truth by consciously, daily, breathing in our worthiness.
Let’s proclaim – I AM a Gift of LOVE for I come from the Creation of All That Is, and I AM Loved without question!
How about you? How do you feel about being a Gift of Love? What happens when you breathe in the gift of love you are? Do you notice any changes within your body, mind, or feelings? I would love to hear from you.
With all my love,
P.S. If you haven’t taken a look at the Live Now program – where we embrace our truths (our specialness) you may want to do so. It’s all about being – The Gift that we are!
