Do you ask yourself these questions?
When will I receive more money?
When will I meet someone that is good to me?
When can I have someone take care of me for a change?
The law of attraction says that when you are always giving, people and circumstances will be there and meet you to take from you. Until you learn to receive you may not receive the abundance the Universe wants to give you.
Clients will schedule a session just because they are exhausted. They can’t seem to find a balance in life. They give so much and create a situation where they cannot find a partner that is equal in giving. I call it the “project” versus the “partner”. Those of us that are the ultimate givers are told that giving is a good thing. It is a good personality trait to have but some of us of can’t seem to balance giving with receiving.
I have found that people who constantly give to their families, friends, and co-workers until they are just exhausted will become ill. This is the only way they can learn to stop giving and start receiving. The Universe makes us stop and ask for help. It is a difficult way to learn this lesson. So why not learn it before this happens to you.
Think about this, when a friend takes you out to lunch do you always want to pick up the tab? Are you uncomfortable if they insist? Do you offer to pay the tip, or you tell them you will pick it up next time? Or better yet, if you know they are picking up the bill do you look at the price of what you want to order and then choose something more reasonable? When someone is willing to give to you maybe you accept their generosity instead of feeling guilty. How does giving make you feel. Good right? Your friends feel good giving to you as well.
This doesn’t mean you stop giving, it means that you are creating a balance. The Yin and Yang are necessary for true balance. This Chinese symbol has been around for centuries. It describes that balance is needed everywhere. Just like our sun and moon, if they were not in constant balance, we would not exist.
In the Yin/Yang which color do you think is feminine and which one masculine?
The Yin is the color black, and the Yang is the opposite color which is white. People are surprised that the feminine side is black. This is because we need to receive to procreate, we are born from the darkness, we are the night and the moon. Masculine has to give to procreate. They are external, and they represent the sun and they must give to procreate.
I believe that especially the feminine energy is here to receive. Many women give so much that men have a difficult time knowing how to give to a woman. Women want to feel independent and choose not to rely on others. Independence is awesome, but it can become too unbalanced and we may end up creating a life of only giving. That’s when we become tired, ill and feeling alone. It will continue until you decide that giving isn’t the only virtue or value that makes up who you are.
I actually believe that when you ask others for help or let them give to you, it makes them feel you value and trust them. You are bringing them joy.
Simply put, your life purpose is learning how to change things you’re not good at so that life can be a balance. You will trust your intuition more, your health can improve, and you can learn to love yourself. Is it worth it to learn to receive?
One simple suggestion to try out receiving and to recognize your patterns, when someone gives you a compliment about your hair, clothes, or whatever it may be, don’t play it down. Accept the compliment with gratitude, just say thank you, that’s so kind of you to notice. You may catch yourself wanting to give some sort of brush off like “I’ve had this outfit forever” or “I got it on sale”. Notice how this feels to you. It may feel uncomfortable to just say thank you and accept the compliment.
Until you realize that is it a good thing to also receive you may not receive that abundance you could from the Universe. Learning to receive is a life lesson and a Soul Contract.
Receiving is receiving and don’t throw the gift of it away. Just doing this you can begin to feel what receiving is like. Trust me, it feels incredible!
