Can You Receive?
The universe is the essence of duality. To be a good giver, you must be a good receiver. And to be a good lover, you must be good at being loved. Stacey Herera
How are you at receiving?
How are you at giving?
How are you at loving?
How are you at being loved?
Some of us are conditioned to be the giver, we feel great when we give
we feel wanted when people look to us for advice, guidance, love, and on and on and on
Can you remember how great you feel when people thank you for doing something that you either really wanted to do or thought nothing of it?
This is such a powerful feeling.
Receiving is the flip side of giving
If we cannot receive it really is more challenging to give with little intention.
When I get a compliment now I save the response to thank you. No explanation, no rationale, no justification. Before I would add something to the thank you.
Thank you is sufficient. It signifies that you have accepted the compliment, the gift, the intention.
It starts the process of both giving and receiving.
give it a go!
Think about how you are giving and receiving, and how you respond to it!
