Over the years, I have received endless emails – short and gracious, long and nasty, and every other combination – exploring or defending the concept of someone having more than one redemptive gift in their soul.
My standard answer is in this paper, but here are some additional considerations.
One of the services I offer is to coach people who are ministering to others. I am in touch with someone who does a complex blend of deliverance, inner healing, life coaching, developing your spirit and what not.
She has a client named “Sally” who is sure she is a Giver. “Jasmine” the life coach is not convinced. Sally certainly manifests a number of characteristics of Giver, but is missing many others. An alternative gift, Exhorter, is discussed, but again, there are markers for Exhorter, but some significant missing characteristics.
Here are some of the ideas I tossed in Jasmine’s direction.
1. Check for family imprint.
Was she raised in a family where either a Giver or an Exhorter ruled with a heavy hand and imprinted his or her nature, values and thought processes on all the kids?
2. Is there a vanishing twin AHS?
3. Is the portion of the spirit that matches the redemptive gift of the soul, missing?
Jasmine pushed back on that one and said that she had already checked and all of the portions of the spirit are present and accounted for.
4. Then I suggested she check the Exhorter and Giver portions of her spirit to see if possibly one of them was a synthetic and not the real deal.
5. Is there a wound to her core gift?
Often, the expression of a gift is warped in childhood because someone in the environment does not like some facet of the gift. I was an extremely passionate Prophet kid, but passion was frowned on in childhood and deemed utterly inappropriate. A great number of people in different contexts worked hard to mellow me out.
They failed utterly to mellow ME out, but they did succeed to tamp down my public presentation a LOT. I am a wild man in private but rarely in public.
So it is entirely possible that Sally IS a Giver, but a few key facets of her Giver gift were roundly repudiated in childhood so she learned to shut them off from the public, therefore Jasmine can’t see them at present.
There is a floating lack of legitimacy in Sally (not much different than anyone else). It is not pervasive and crippling, but pops up like a prairie dog with regularity.
It could be a standalone wound, or it could be related to #2, #4 or #5. Once the redemptive gift issue is sorted out, it will be interesting to see if the prairie dog fades away on its own, or whether it needs to be hunted down and resolved as its own issue.
Meanwhile, Jasmine is methodical and Sally is willing, so I am sure something will become clear in time.
