Stop Compensating for Your Strengths

by Gada Jane

Far too often people with amazing magical minds aren't really using the magical parts as a strength. Instead, they are putting a whole lot of energy into trying to mimic the practicality of the world around them.


It's like they take information from the outside world, run it through whatever amazing, elaborate processes their minds use and then just dump the magical parts in order to act in simple, comprehensible, expected ways.


Sometimes in a reading, I can even pinpoint the exact person my client learned to mimic so that they can bypass their actual brilliance and pretend to be pragmatic and good at life.


When we are pretending to be good and simple in this way, two things happen. We feel less fulfilled and the world is misses out on our unique gifts.


Today, a quick reminder that we need to value what's unique about our inner worlds. Never take their abilities for granted and please, all you magical people, stop compensating for your strengths and starting using them.


Do you ever catch yourself compensating for your strengths like this?
