One of the most common things my spirit guides tell folks in personal readings is how wise and powerful they are. Some do not believe it—they take the attitude that the guides must say that to lots of people. Which they do.

But what these folks fail to see is that we are all wise and powerful. We are all special.

I understand where people are coming. After all, our modern world is not always supportive, and often discourages thinking highly of ourselves.

If someone had told me, when I was younger, how wise and powerful I was, I would have thought it was pure nonsense. I could see nothing special about myself.

Marianne Williamson once said, “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”

Here are a few thoughts from Spirit.


Even the most “ordinary” of you have special abilities—gifts and talents—not one other person on the planet has. You are all wise and powerful far beyond what you’ve been taught as little children, and as adults.

One of the reasons you chose to come into this incarnation, at this time in your planet’s history, is to share your wisdom with others. You knew this was to be an era of heightening awareness and growing consciousness. And you wanted to do your part to nurture and further this growth—not only for others, but for yourselves.

We would go so far as to say you have an obligation to be who you are, which is God in human form. You have an obligation to do that which you, at the soul level, intended to do when you incarnated. You have an obligation to be true to yourself and to your reason for being here in the first place.

Be who you are. Remember why you came here. Let your light shine. Let your power and your wisdom be known far and wide. You cannot do otherwise and still remain true to yourselves.


Here’s a touching video tribute to Bob the barber, an “ordinary” guy who was anything but ordinary.
