Your Gift as a Tide

I have heard that I am a vessel.  In that sense I look for ways that Divine energy can flow through me.  Earlier this week someone described their gift as a tide that both comes from and moves through them.

Immediately I began to think about introduction to the concept of neap tide. It was described to me as the calm time of transition between when the tide was rolling in and when the tide was rolling out.  This is also how I picture the season of waiting.

When I think of tide I also remember my time shadowing a wilderness therapy program where we traveled by boat for two weeks.  At night we anchored in the middle of coves and tried to sleep.  The force of the changing tides nearly knocked me off the oars I used as a bed.

With these experiences I can see gifts as talents that don’t always get a chance to show but when they do they can rock your world!

Consider your own experiences with tides.  What does that reveal about your gifts?
