The Truth About Receiving in My Life

How Can I Open to Receive?

 

Last summer was a time of exploration for myself, a time of discovery.

I discovered that I was working very hard and enjoying it, but I was also exhausted and felt as though I could not keep up the pace.

I discovered that the exhaustion was from giving away too much of myself and receiving too little back.  The giving and receiving in my life was way out of balance.  It still feels out of balance to me.

I discovered that, central to my financial situation, was a set of beliefs that keep me from being open to receive the abundance that I keep asking the universe to send  me.

I discovered that I am giving away far too much for free.  I seem to have created a situation where many people, reflecting the pattern back to me, expect me to give more and more away in exchange for nothing at all.

I discovered that having an open heart is not enough because the moment someone gives me a gift – any gift – I feel compelled to give them something back in return.  Sometimes I completely  resist receiving what they have generously offered.  I try to talk them out of it and I’m good at this, so I usually succeed.  I can recall past situations in which I completely rejected their gifts, thus offending people whom I care deeply about and leaving them feeling rejected as well.

I discovered that I don’t know how to get out of this pattern.

I discovered that trying to create a new balance is essential to my experiencing HEALTH, JOY, and ABUNDANCE.

It is now 5 months later, and this issue is still looming large in my life.

I AM ASKING FOR HELP  from my I Am Presence and the rest of the “upstairs department,” although I fervently hope that I will not immediately reject help when it arrives, which is part of the same pattern.

I FORGIVE MYSELF for having this pattern and am saying the forgiveness prayer that I teach to others.

Last summer I thought that a professional colleague of mine had the answers to this, but it turned out that her approach felt plastic to me  – hard and artificial.  It sent me down a detour that I hoped would clear this issue, but which did not.  Her approach was not a heart-felt system, and that is essential for my spiritual goals to be achieved.

So I may not be back to “square 1” because I understand more now, but understanding is not sufficient to break through a block like this.  This is a very, very large old block.  It feels like a mountain.

I am open to receiving prayers for my success in taking back my personal power in this situation.   Thank you in advance for any prayers you may choose to send.

Namaste,
Nedda

 

Gratitude, Giving, and Receiving

You’ve probably read or heard that gratitude is a key to successful manifestion of what we are choosing for our lives.  I’ve heard this, too.  We’ve also all been told that it is better to give than to receive, although I’ve often thought this a foolish remark.  After all, if everyone is giving and no one receiving, how could that work????

Yesterday, while doing a section of a program by Coco Fossland, www.WorldChangingBusiness.com, I learned something new.  On the recording I was listening to, Coco was explaining how, if we want to manifest our dreams, we have to be open to receiving them, and that receiving is just as important as giving.  Here are some of the insights she shared.

  • “When we receive, we give the other person the gift of abundance.”
  • “When we receive, we get to have what we want.”
  • “When we receive, we allow others to shine their light.”
  • “When we receive, we remember the abundance of the universe.”
  • “If you are not open to receiving, all the giving you do will not create what you are trying to manifest.  It just won’t work.”

So today, I suggest you take a good look at your beliefs around giving and receiving.  Where in your body are you blocked from receiving the things and experiences you are choosing for your life?  What can you do to open yourself to receive?

When you allow yourself to receive, you will have much more in your life to feel gratitude towards.  Increased receiving = increased opportunities for giving = increased opportunities for gratitude.  The result, overall, is increased abundance for everyone.  Wouldn’t that be truly wonderful?

Nasmaste.
