Under each of our problems, illnesses and pain, there lies a gift we brought in at a soul level that is waiting to be embraced. What makes life abundant, fun and worthwhile is the sharing of gifts.
Embracing a gift heals illnesses and solves problems in one of the easiest ways possible. We create every problem or symptom in order to control, defend against something and hide. Uncovering our gifts can collapse the illness.
We are armed with gifts to help heal a suffering world. Within us are the gifts necessary for us to have a wonderful life and get through every illness or problem we will ever have.
Within us are the gifts necessary to face any challenge successfully. The bigger our illness is, the bigger the gift that is hiding underneath. It is necessary to find the gift, embrace it energetically and share it.
We have thousands of gifts within us, waiting in potential to make our life and the lives of those around us easier, but we must be willing to give up the control that we get from problems and illnesses. When we reach our gifts, we will have given up control for responsiveness, sharing and enjoyment.
