I have been questioning my Power of Awareness to reveal Super Heroes!
Who first thought up the concept of a “Super Hero”?
When did Super Heroes first enter your field of Awareness?
Why were Super Heroes gifted with Super Powers?
I was listening to a lengthy conversation yesterday, between my niece and grandson. They were discussing their favourite Super Heroes and their Super Powers. Since then, I have been reflecting on whom I identify as Super Heroes, and why.
Myths and Legends have been passed down through the ages to record events and information. Sometimes, these were through song, dance and recitals. Others were through storytelling, rituals and written word.
Storytelling connects us to our ancestors, down through the ages. I have been telling my grandson many stories, especially about his first months of life – where I was present and could share my memories of events that he was too little to consciously recall at this present time. I love telling him stories about when his own mother – my daughter – was a child. These are the stories that connect him to the child in his adult mother. The stories that fascinate a child, who can’t quite believe that his Super Hero mom was also a Super Hero child.
Which brings me to ask again – what or whom is a Super Hero?
When we engage the full Power of our Awareness, Super Heroes are revealed, all around us, in our midst.
Super Heroes are not mythical figures who set out to save the world, to destroy evil or to vanquish monsters. They are people just like you and me. People who aspire to give their best, to shine their light into the darkest corners, and to allow their love to radiate without concern for results. Everyday people doing everyday activities, but with the awareness that every conscious act of love has the power to vanquish fear and despair.
Super Powers include compassion, paying attention, active listening, just being present, doing what is yours to do, bringing what is yours to bring, being the highest version of yourself, living in gratitude.
Which other Super Powers do you recognise in the Super Heroes amongst us?
