Unwrapping Your Spiritual Gifts Your Soul Path

Unwrapping Your Spiritual Gifts — Your Soul Path

Unwrapping your spiritual gifts is the goal of your soul path. There are treasures, the legacy of our ancestors’ sacrifices, which lay dormant in our DNA, waiting to awaken. Learn how to open these latent talents.

Discovering Your Spiritual Assets

Language is a wonderful tool, it enables communication, but has varying degrees of accuracy depending on how it is used.  The arena of spirituality well known for the misuse of language because religions assimilate words and terms into their systems to bolster their  legitimacy.

People use the term spiritual gifts, but what they are really referring to are skills which can be learned, or philosophical arguments.  Find out what these terms really mean.  Are they talking about the genuine spiritual treasures of the soul, or are they talking about religious dogma or practical skills.  Western religion (1) uses this term in reference to skills, abilities, and talents which can be learned.

We use these terms to describe tools and virtues of consciousness. These tools enable us to explore consciousness and find these treasures.  Thet treasures are expressions of our highest human virtues.  The tools and virtues of consciousness differ from philosophical theories and skills you learn, true tools help us find and open our spiritual gifts.

Some say latent talents are also gifts.  We disagree. Agan, Western religion uses the term talents to describe skills which can be learned, like dancing or singing.  It’s the same way talents like mathematics. Mathematics is a skill which is learned, some people are better at it than others.

Your Soul Path

The virtues of the spirit are our most valuable assets.  They are home to the highest expressions of human nature.  There are nine virtues which correspond to each personality type.

The virtues of the spirit are gratitude, joyfulness, happiness, love, thankfulness, blissfulness, appreciation, mindfulness, and serenity.

Western religion refers to spiritual gifts and virtues, however, they are not really talking about the nine virtues of the spirit.  They use these terms as a bait and switch tactic and substitute the study of religious doctrine or texts, which has nothing to do with these gifts.

These treasures of our Soul are the legacy of our ancestors, a culmination of connections stretching back to the beginning. We result from lessons learned and blessings earned. We inherit them through our DNA, acquiring their use by this inheritance.

You don’t need a religion to unlock them; you own them. Your Soul Path is different because our gifts differ from everyone else. Unwrapping your spiritual gifts is a journey of self-discovery, you do not need to join a religion follow doctrine or dogma.

It would be almost impossible to list all variations of these gifts. We recognize them when we see them in operation. For instance, the ability to facilitate healing is a talent. Feeling the emotions of other people or places is the Empath‘s gift.

Sages say discovering your spiritual essence is the purpose of life, and opening these gifts is the beginning of our spiritual walk. The Shamanic Journey is one of our primary spiritual technologies for exploring awareness. It’s a tool which reveals gifts and talents. An excellent resource to learn this process is the book Shamanic Journeying: A Beginner’s Guide by Sandra Ingerman (2).

This tool is one ancient technology which helps us explore and develop our potential. Try it yourself.

Consciousness Development

Now, let’s go back to talk about skills. You can increase access to these latent skills, abilities, and talents in the same way you can increase athletic ability. It’s like playing basketball. Some people have a natural talent for this game. Take Michael Jordan, for instance. You can practice for years and never be able to do the things Mr. Jordan can do. That doesn’t mean we can’t have fun playing basketball, even if we can’t pass, shoot and dunk like Michael Jordan. It means your Soul treasures are different from his.

These unique core gifts come in a variety, like a rainbow of different colors, your Soul Path is different from everyone else’s. Some people have just a few colors, and some have several. You may not be aware of them until you awaken them.

Discovering your spiritual doorways to other states is a part of the process. Each entrance or color reveals a new opportunity to grow. There are many levels of consciousness available to us if we seek them.

Instead of looking for a list of potential gifts you might or might not have, learn to awaken to your own! It is easier than you think. Just remember, gentle with yourself.  Progress is hard to predict. We each learn at different rates. Be patient and gentle with yourself.  Be persistent and keep using processes like the Shamanic Journey.

Consciousness development is serious inner work. It will illuminate any roadblocks.  The discoveries you make will be a part of your legacy to others.

You can use the shamanic journey or other tools to walk your own path and explore consciousness without joining a religion. All you need to do is follow the process. These tools come from Eastern traditions. Their focus is on exploring consciousness and developing human potential.

Unwrapping Your Spiritual Gifts

soul treasures how to discover your spiritual gifts

Discovering your spiritual essence is easier than you think. Here is one way many people can begin the process. It’s a simple and intuitive process. We will sit upright and guide our awareness from our ordinary active mind to our body and breathe. Then we visualize the unlocking of the treasures of our Souls. It’s simple, try it.

1) Quiet the Mind And Guide Awareness Inward

First, allow yourself a few moments to sit in silence. Consciously bring your awareness to your body. Sit comfortably. You don’t need to sit cross-legged. Your spine should be upright but not strained.

Allow the head to float above your shoulders, then direct awareness to  your posture and breathing.  If you can not observe the breath without changing it, then just observe your posture, with a little practice you will be able to observe the breath without interfering.

When thoughts interrupt, gently return your attention to your posture and breathe. It will quiet the mind. Practice this until you feel your mind quiet down. In this way, you learn how to guide awareness gently inward.

We recommend the use of a spiritual journal to document your exploration. Discovering your spiritual treasures is a form of investigation. So, writing about your thoughts and feelings after you meditate is one way to hear what your Soul says.

2) Creative Visualization

The last step is to leverage the power of creative visualization—this is a way to use our imagination. Make a vivid picture in your mind. Again, this is the rebranding of the Shamanic journey. It’s a method that has been used for eons to discovering your spiritual path.

Feel the air (source) coming into you through your nostrils and filling your lungs. Visualize bringing in cleansing air and source energies. Now visualize it going down the spine and gather them in the sacral area. When you breathe out, visualize negative thoughts and energy going out.  When you breathe in, visualize positive energy coming in.  Regulate your breath—breathe in slowly for seven seconds. Hold the breath in for two or three  seconds, and then exhale slowly through your lips.

As you are breathing, visualize energy uncoiling up your spine.  Give yourself permission to unlock the treasures of the Soul which reside within. TRUST in the process. After a few minutes, you will begin to feel silence and stillness.

The last step is to visualize the unlocking of the treasures of your Soul. Ask your ancestors to help you if you are inclined to call upon your spirit guides or guardian angels. Ask them for focus, direction, discipline, counsel, and love. Allow the blessings to do this until the only thing you notice is your life force energy coming back into sync with life. You may also feel you are more in sync with the heartbeat of Mother Earth.

For more intensity, use this technique along with a shamanic drum track. The rhythm of the drum will give you added focus.

Summing up the Process

Some people find this process works almost immediately. However, it may take several times over several weeks for many people, everyone is different, so don’t force it. The process and the timetable for unlocking your spiritual gifts are different for everyone.

Walking your Soul Path is what Joseph Campbell calls The Hero’s Journey. (3) Creating your own path does not mean we need to walk alone. Find others are walking a path like yours. Learn from them and help them teach them, and accept their help.

We are all on our path, going at our own pace. Some people get their gifts all at once, others over time. They are available when we are ready to receive them. Awakening is like a butterfly transformation. It takes time.

Common Roadblocks

First, it is common to have thoughts, and emotions interrupt this process. It is also hard to follow the breath, but both will become easier with time and practice. Don’t force things. If your mind is hyperactive or tired, wait for a better time to practice. Over time, your mind, body, and Soul will come to enjoy this time of synchronization.

Second, our cultural narrative resists change. We receive programming from several social systems that create boundaries of thinking.  Programming from the cultural narrative is so powerful it will install bias and prejudices.  So, it’s essential to question your cultural narrative. It’s where we get most of the beliefs that make up our worldview.

Solutions

After you do this practice, stay present with your body and breath, it will help you keep in contact with this primal energy and knowledge. Unwrapping your spiritual gifts continues after you end this meditative process. Some synchronicity may trigger an awareness of a doorway that you didn’t realize existed. Again, everyone is different. Be present enough to trust your energies.

Vibrations

You will feel the high vibrations of your gifts, just like being in the presence of a friend. Many find clarity of thoughts and images within the mind’s eye directly after the practice. If you felt nothing, that’s telling you something. If it doesn’t resonate, then perhaps you aren’t in a place to open this skill, ability, or talent. Most people have a spiritual awareness of people and places. Trust in this wisdom.

What Are The Spiritual Technologies?

These processes are a collection of proven methods for unwrapping your spiritual gifts. We call them spiritual technologies. They help us expand awareness and unlock these treasures. We divide these tools into four major categories:

In Conclusion

There’s nothing wrong with studying philosophy.  There isn’t anything wrong with developing a list of attributes, but these differ from unlocking our spiritual gifts and latent skills, abilities, and talents.

Use as many spiritual technologies as you can and find out what treasures you have hidden away in your DNA.  We’d like to hear about your experience with these processes. Don’t hesitate to contact us.
