Divine guidance hit twice in two minutes the other day, so believe me, it got my attention. This time it arrived via synchronicity, a popular pathway for higher meaning. The first hit came by email message, the second, barely a breath later, arrived in a Facebook post.
Suddenly the coaching call I’d just ended snapped into deeper meaning. A client and I had been discussing how her life is providing great opportunities to be even more authentic. Work is offering new beginnings and asking her to step more fully into her innate gifts and talents, regardless of whether her contributions are openly appreciated by others.

When these wise words interrupted my quick zip to post Facebook birthday wishes, my Akashic Records began building on synchronicity’s truths. They reminded me how important it is for us to bring forth and trust our greatest strengths without worrying about what others say. After all, people’s reactions are about them: they are not about us. And bringing our divinely endowed gifts to humanity is one of the biggest reasons we are alive. It’s a major component of our life purpose.
In my coaching career, and in working with people in their Records, I’ve witnessed how often we humans take our divine talents for granted because they come so naturally to us. After all, how could something that seems so easy be a big deal to anyone, right?
Conversely, others worry that exhibiting their greatest talents will spark accusations of being “too big for their britches.” Rather than risk appearing egoistic, they play small.
My business partners were of great service to me when they pointed out gifts I didn’t honor in myself. And the self-ignored talent they helped me see? Ironically enough, it was my ability to recognize and communicate other people’s unique gifts and strengths.
When we work with people in their Akashic Records around their divine gifts, we often are guided to take them through releasing their fears around these strengths. Once that is complete, the Records then give us a process to “grace in” the confidence and surety that owning and trusting these talents not only is part of their journey, but it also is key to their contributions this lifetime.
People then see that as long as they stay in their hearts, and intend to remain respectful and of service to others, they won’t be too big for those britches – whether or not anyone accuses them of that. And the more they trust their divine talents, the more easily life flows, and the happier they become.
So, I wonder: What are your God-given talents and greatest gifts? How are you sharing them with the world? How are they making your life more rewarding? Care to share with us?
