Lessons from the Dandelion (Part 2) – Realize Your Gifts

 The Gifts In You!

Although we often consider the dandelion an annoying weed, it is rich with an amazing array of gifts! 

Its nutritional content exceeds that of most vegetables. It’s healing properties are vast.

My interest in the dandelion began while searching for an answer for my oldest daughter who developed an incurable auto-immune disorder as a result of a reaction to immunizations.

The Gift of Healing

During our worldwide search in the 90s spanning 3 continents and meeting hundreds of physicians’ researchers and scientists, I learned that the dandelion is known for its powerful liver support and cleansing properties. In traditional medicine, dandelion is used as a liver tonic to stimulate a sluggish or congested liver. Our search ultimately led us to develop a powerful immune system support product called EnerPrime. Dandelion is a key ingredient. Dandelion is important for removing toxins in our liver including those from pharmaceutical drugs and in our case the vaccines. Not only did EnerPrime help our daughter but over the past 3 decades, it has changed the lives of many thousands. (note: for more information on EnerPrime comment or message me)

That is not the reason I am writing about the dandelion…

The point of this article is that a plant that we step on and consider a pesky nuisance is actually rich with life-changing gifts!

This leads me to the important question:

What life-changing gifts in you and me are we neglecting or overlooking?

Your Gifts ARE Special!

As a coach (mostly to coaches) the genius my clients possess never fails to amaze me! I am astounded by their creativity and giftedness. What’s funny is that most of them do not recognize their genius! I suspect you and I may not either, at least not all of them.  It can be difficult to recognize our brilliance, can’t it? We often assume that our gifts are nothing special and that everyone knows what we know, and can do what we can do. We assume our great ideas have already been done by another.

It is much easier to speak of our limitations and our shortcomings than our greatness! Why is that?

Perhaps we are afraid of

  • appearing arrogant or proud
  • letting people down or failing
  • Rejection and ridicule

So we hold back, step back, play small and hide. We hide in friendships and relationships as well as in business.. The guise of busyness is another place we hide.

Hiding has been part of the human story since the time of Adam and Eve. When God went looking for Adam in the garden we find him hiding. He replied,

“I heard you walking in the garden, I was afraid, so I hid.” – Gen 3:10

Hiding Our Gifts is Always Based on Fear

The truth is that when we hide everyone loses. Not only do we keep others from enjoying and benefiting from our gifts but we hide the glory of God!

Scripture is clear we are “blessed to be a blessing”. Your gift can make a difference in the life of another. What you take for granted as natural can change another person’s life in big ways.

For me cooking vegan is as easy as breathing since I’ve done it for many decades. I have discovered, however, that for others it is like learning a foreign language! As I have freely shared my gift of vegan food preparation others have been able to radically change their health.

I love the Proverb from the wisest king

“A man’s gift makes room for him” Prov. 18:16 KJV

Your Gifts are Meant to be Shared

As a coach working with some of the most amazing women on the planet, one of the first changes is to get them to stop hiding. The temptation is to hide behind their creativity. They create massive amounts of brilliant content but fear to release it to the public. They convince themselves they are not ready or it’s not good enough. Like the lowly dandelion, the gifts inside of us are not meant to be extinguished or hidden. We were born to share our gifts and shine!

Your Gift Can be the Ticket

When I went through a divorce 8 years ago I left with nothing. I had to reinvent and start my life all over. The first thing I did was take stock of my gifts. This led me to launch Prosper in All Things a speaking and a coaching business that allowed me to work 2-3 days a week and earn a six-figure income. This experience is one of the reasons I started the Prosper By Design Coach Certification program because

To each of you precious ones who have been hiding, I believe that today God is speaking. For us to truly make a change in the world we must learn to stop hiding, share our gifts and collaborate.

Beautiful dandelion, you are not lowly or unimportant, you have pushed through some tough concrete.  It’s time to shine!

“Rise up in splendor and be radiant, for your light has dawned, and Yahweh’s glory now streams from you! – Isa 60:1 TPT

Praying YOU prosper in ALL things!
