W1L1: The Open Inward Soul Gift Discovery


The Open Inward Soul Gift Discovery Assignment is where you will more deeply explore your unique Soul Gift.


Did you receive an Early Bird bonus gift of an Intuitive Coaching session with Laurie Anne before your program began? In that case, we recommend that you listen to your session before doing this assignment.

If you did not qualify for this bonus gift, don’t worry, this assignment will also help you discern your unique Soul Gift.

If you still feel that you need further guidance, you are welcome to book an Intuitive Coaching Session to focus specifically on discerning your unique Soul Gift.

Creation said:

“I want to hide something from the humans until they are ready for it.

It is the realization that they create their own reality.”

The eagle said,

“Give it to me. I will take it to the moon.”

The Creator said, “No. One day they will go there and find it.”

The salmon said,

“I will bury it on the bottom of the ocean.”

The Creator said, “No. They will go there, too.”

The buffalo said, “I will bury it on the Great Plains.”

The Creator said, “They will cut into the skin of the earth and find it even there.”

Grandmother who lives in the breast of Mother Earth,

and who has no physical eyes but sees with spiritual eyes, said

“Put it inside of them.”

And the Creator said, “It is done.”

Landing on your unique Soul Gift all begins with a simple knowing that you are here to give of yourself and serve through a soulful quality that is unique to you.

Humility is the foundation of our Soul Gifts. No one person is valued more significantly than another. We should neither inflate nor denigrate our view of ourselves. We should work on knowing ourselves by cultivating our assess to our awareness. We are all needed and significant. We all have an essential role to play on this planet. 

Source Energy, God, Goddess, All That Is, All That Ever was and All That Ever Will Be has made sure to distribute an inner knowing to each soul.

We all have within us the knowledge as to who we are and why we are here, even if it takes a lifetime to recognize, accept and embrace these soulful qualities. Our process of becoming is more accessible when we commit to cultivating our Self-Connection. The foundation of OITEW is ‘Know Thyself.’

Your Soul Gift is not necessarily a personality trait, strength or weakness, motivating desire, or even inclination.

This discovery process does not involve an (often misleading, ego-seductive) Soul Gift inventory such as the one held by Christians through the Biblical Spiritual Gifts. (We will explore those later in the program)

We must honestly, authentically and uninhibitedly look at how we show up for the people in our lives and service to the planet. In other words, we need to do the work around the quality of our Self-Connection. We will only discover our Soul Gift through the actions of our unconditional service. Our Soul Gift is a lens through which we have free will to guide our efforts in our life.

Once we identify our Soul Gift, more importantly, we have much work to do around consciously exercising our Soul Gift. It is like a powerful muscle we must consciously access daily. Knowing our Soul Gift is knowing the quality of how we show up in the world to make a difference. Our Soul Gift is a natural response to the challenges and gifts presented along the journey of our lives.

From knowing our Soul Gift, we now take full responsibility for our concentration on serving with that unique gift that is essential to all, vertically and horizontally, in time and space and beyond.

  • Write your thoughts and feelings in your journal to your heart’s content regarding your Soul Gift. 
  • Then distill your notes. 
  • Keep your response to these questions as brief, powerful statements. 
  • Trust your very first thoughts. They are pure.
