Many tennis players have what is called their “sweet spot” which refers to the place on the racket at the center where the ball will rebound with the most velocity. This reference transcends into life as well; when you find your sweet spot, you just know it.
Our “sweet spot” really shines when it comes to our spiritual gifts. There are some areas in which we will serve (no pun intended) that will have greater “bounce” than others. It is amazing once discover your unique combination of gifts and abilities that the universe has given you.
My clients often express the longing to uncover what that sweet spot may be. Often, they aren’t sure what their particular gifts are. Finding your sweet spot happens the moment when you feel connected, validated, acknowledged and honored for exactly who you are. Everyone has a different sweet spot because we all have different goals and dreams.
What can you do to discover and develop it? Here are three things you can do to find your spiritual gift “sweet spot.”
Feeling spiritually alive and connected to some kind of higher power immediately brings us to our spiritual sweet spot. There are many fantastic ways to find your sweet spot from practicing mindfulness to expressing gratitude to the things and people you have in your life. Meditating is also a great way to find that sweet spot because it allows you to be alone with your thoughts as you connect to a higher power. You awaken to the truth that your purpose is greater than your possessions or your career.
There are many ways to look within, and it’s important to find the best way for you.
A great place to discover your bliss and follow it is to approach the journey with curiosity and playfulness. You may need to try many different things, to see what resonates best with you.You’re naturally adept to giving when you are in your place of bliss. When your heart feels “full” that self-love emanates into everyone around you; there is unique quality present in what you do and how you do it when it comes from the space of infinite love.
Develop a growth mindset and be a student of life. Remain open to the world around you, as every relationship, challenge, setback and accomplishment serves as your teacher. When we can see things from a wider perspective, we can better navigate life and see each moment as an opportunity to learn something about ourselves that in turn, contributes to our personal growth.
Finding your sweet spot spiritually is a life-long journey because there is no time limit. You will know you have found it when everything just seems to “flow” and you feel happy, content and in sync with everything unfolding around you. You feel connected to a higher and much greater consciousness. You know the universe has got your back and that no matter what happens, you are going to be all right. Your spiritual sweet spot feels like home because YOU ARE HOME. And wherever you go, there you are in all your magnificence.
