Last night, I dreamt of shamanic practitioner and educator Caitlín Matthews and her Celtic Wisdom Oracle, a deck I acquired only recently. Today I pulled a card from that pack in response to “What message do you have for me today?” The card I drew at random was the Lady of Life. One of the questions that the Lady of Life invites me ask myself is, “Where can my greatest gifts and abilities be used best?” This fascinates me because a couple of weeks ago, during a profound council circle with peers from one of my spiritual groups, a very similar question — “What circle of community is an authentic forum and outlet for my gifts and skills?” — arose in me.
I’m struck by the convergence of council, dream, and oracle and so I will respect each of those by spending time with these two versions of what my Soul is asking me.
I also call upon YOU, my friends in this online circle, to respond to those questions, both about me and about yourself. What ARE my greatest gifts and abilities? What are YOUR greatest gifts and abilities? Where CAN my gifts and abilities be used best? Where can YOUR gifts and abilities be used best? Please share your responses in the Comments.
