It is generally true that we do not see ourselves the way that others do which brings with it a host of other issues.
In the last 4 years I have been working on ironing out the kinks which I perceive in my mediumship, clairvoyance & readings in general. I have not always been the most confident of people, this leads me to be very self critical (way more than anyone else around me would be) and this actual has undermined my confidence in my path, my abilities, my direction and so much more.
I am thankful to friends and loved ones in my life who I know would not tell me what I WANT to hear just to spare my feelings, but who would in fact lovingly tell me where I fall down or need to work on improving an area.
Add to this issue my need to perfect things, and be flawless, which stems from my younger years where I was criticised at every turn and you will see the size of my problem!
I have worked hard to make my mark, to offer honest, ethical readings to those needing my guidance and I like to think that has been achieved. I have many people give me such lovely feedback about their readings, to which I generally reply ‘It is Spirit, not I as I am only as good as that which they give me’ which is true of any ‘channel’ or ‘medium’. So why is it the single voice of dissent which can be heard loudest is MY voice, the ego telling me I am not good enough, that I have not worked hard enough, that there is more to do? I am sure you can all identify with that aspect of ourselves.
This week has been a real eye opener as a friend forced me out of my comfort zone, made me look from a different perspective and what did I see? A whole new me! There were still aspects I was left feeling needed work (nobody is ever perfect, even the Navajo Indians leave a knot on their rugs so the Gods are not angered by their pride and need for perfection) but I now realise that I am far better, more advanced and less imperfect and inferior than I believed.
With that in mind I say to you all: Take a friend who you trust to be honest with you + add others whom you respect that are in the same field, hobby etc as you + an open mind = A whole new perspective!
After a week of that I am now far more secure in myself, my abilities and my future. Thank you to my friend SM 🙂
