Figuring Out My Gifts

Star tarot cardI had a tarot reading today, the first in a long time that I didn’t do for myself. It became abundantly clear that my primary focus right now needs to be not about weight loss or professional development; it’s about healing my spiritual core. One part of that is figuring out what my gifts are, so that I can reclaim my power.

It sounded well and good when she told me that, and resonated as true. But I don’t really have a clue how to do it. It’s not as easy as opening a catalog and picking a few things out, trying them on for size, and saying, oh sure, THESE are my gifts. Is organization the same kind of gift as the ability to do jigsaw puzzles? What about being compassionate vs speed reading? What about things I may be brilliant at but have never even considered?

This seems like a good thing for me to be working on right now, but I could use some suggestions from you good people about how to go about looking at my life, my heart, my abilities, my talents, to somehow discern my gifts.

Any thoughts?
