With the holidays upon us, there is a lot of energy around giving and receiving.
It seems to hold true that what we give is what we get. This is what keeps the flow of abundance in our lives. It is the Universal Law.
For some of us, it is hard for us to give unconditionally. We can also put expectations on our giving. It can also be hard to give, especially if we are feeling lack. We are taught to hold on to what we have, and this is how we get “more”. And in giving, we will have less. We also have many attachments to what we have.
This kind of energy actually helps to create more lack! When we hold the energy of lack, or not having enough, we are actually telling the universe that this is what we want to experience….lack! Can you imagine telling the universe that you would like to experience lack? Of course not! But that is exactly what you are doing, and it can feel like a terrible cycle once you are in it.
INTENTION IS THE KEY.
The more we give unconditionally from our hearts, the more we can receive. This keeps the energy of abundance in our lives. You can not have one without the other.
It is also important to understand the energy of giving. It must be from your heart. If there are any feelings other than wanting to give, it is not a true energy of giving, and you will not have the abundance energy that you want to create. So, keep your intentions clear! And GIVE!
THE ART OF RECEIVING
And so it is in the art of giving, the art of receiving, and being open to receive is just as important in creating abundance. After all, how can we bring in abundance if we are not open to receive?
For many, the energy of receiving can be difficult. We attach many things to receiving. One of those attachments is the feeling of “what do we have to do in return.” Another issue in receiving is not feeling worthy. Many of us are caregivers, and are more comfortable in giving.
It does take some practice indeed! Take a look at your self and find w
here you can improve your perspective. Do you give more easily, or perhaps its easier to receive?
Practice daily giving and receiving. This is not only about the abundance of money. You can practice by giving joy, hope, love and other wonderful gifts.
And when someone wants to gift to you, be open to receive. It will make then feel wonderful!
May you have many, many blessings on your creating journey.
