There is an amazing amount of potential that lives inside of each person. Each individual has unique gifts and wisdom to share with the world. This potential is like an underground mine that is deep within you, full of precious jewels and gems.
Many people do not realize that this untapped mine lives inside of them, quietly existing under the surface. They may see only what is above ground, which is the landscape of their everyday life. The landscape may be pleasant or unpleasant; you may feel satisfied with what you see day to day or not.
Depending on life circumstances and events, you may feel drawn to look within yourself to see “what else” there is that is possible for you. This is a process that requires introspection. Taking the time for self-reflection and allowing a space of stillness in your life can be a catalyst for a new door to open. This door leads inward, not outward. Step through this opening and see that you are walking through a passageway that leads into an internal mine of knowledge, a vast cavern that has always been there. The cavern walls are embedded with jewels and gems, full of untapped wisdom, opportunity and potential.
This is a sacred space that exists inside of you. This space is present for each person and is unique to every individual. There is an energy of absolute knowing, unconditional love and eternal acceptance in this place, a divine connection to Spirit. The jewels and gems that reside in the walls are all opportunities that you could take, gifts you could give to yourself and others, a precious extension of Spirit that is sparkling with unlimited possibilities.
This is a space of creating and manifesting your hopes and desires. The energy here is malleable, expansive and can form a variety of outcomes. Examine what you would like to create. How are you being called to serve in your life? What gifts are you yearning to bring to the surface? Imagine that these gifts, these jewels of Spirit, are being drawn into your hands, and feel the power that they contain. This power has always lived inside of you and you are the only one that can bring these gifts beyond the mine and extend them to the world.
As you look around the cavern, become aware of the many offshoots that this room contains. There are infinite passageways that led further down, waiting to be explored, as you have not only one gift to share with the world, but boundless jewels, all created with meaningful intentions. There are rooms upon rooms that are waiting to be opened. This is part of the growth that you have come to Earth to experience, exploring your own passageways of Spirit, discovering new facets of yourself that are waiting to come to light.
Know that you are worthy to be in this blessed, beautiful space. It is an internal sanctuary connecting you and Spirit. Feel your innate divineness and spiritual authority, flowing from these caverns. Harness that power in your daily life and let it rise up in you and spill forth into your external existence. You will be amazed at what you can create and give to this world. You will begin to sparkle like the jewels that live within you, reflecting outward all your love and light to the world, and creating an existence full of wonder.
