Sharing Visual Gifts

I went back and tried to re-create the orby thing on in a photo, but couldnâ€™t. Â I took dozens of pics from Â the same spot, Â same Â angle, same Â lighting, Â same Â everything. Nothing. Visible only in this one photo, which Â was the first I took. I also, thinking maybe it was humidity, took several pics outside in the moonlight and in the shadows. Nothing.
Last year, we had quite a few healing sessions in this room where orbs were seen by at least 3 different people while I sat and pouted because â€œIâ€™m not visualâ€ and I felt deficient as a High Priestess for not having that particular talent. I used to feel somewhere between hurt and Â mad when people who could see things in the Ether would insist that I was supposed to see them, too. As if I either hadnâ€™t asked for the gift or didnâ€™t know what to look for or there was something wrong with me. I understand that it was something Â wondrous Â they wanted to share, hence their exuberance, Â but it was frustrating Â to me to be told that Iâ€™m supposed to be seeing things that I donâ€™t.
At least for the time being, I donâ€™t. Iâ€™m still not visual when it comes Â to seeing things walk in the Ether. I experience Â them Â in Â other Â ways, Â usually Â through Â my Â empathic nature. And when I am â€œvisualâ€ now, itâ€™s through dreams, meditations, Â and flashes. Those Â have increased steadily Â over Â the Â past Â year, Â especially Â the Â most Â recent months, so maybe I will be as adept one day as many others. I donâ€™t drive myself crazy wishing for it or trying to attain it.
After all, I have lots of other gifts.
And maybe my camera is a just different way of seeing the same thing so it can be shared.
