Hello and welcome to the August 2016 edition of Conscious Shift Magazine.
This month new ideas are taking root about receiving. Are you a good receiver? Do you receive compliments well or are you a deflector? What about receiving a great idea that is just overflowing with possibility? Are you able to hear it’s potential when presented to you or do you glaze over like a deer in the headlights of a fast approaching car?
If you are a good receiver you are in the minority because most people I meet have some blocks with receiving. Even when the receiving is small there seems to be something that causes us to pinch off the universal flow of receiving.
When it comes to pinching off receiving I am no stranger. Recently I was given a great idea by my managing editor for a way to reach more people with the message of Conscious Shifting.
She advised me that it would make sense for me to incorporate book marketing and publishing into our Conscious Community. I said'”Great let’s do it.” She also advised me that my story would make a great book and that I should write it. So I did. I started down the rabbit hole of publishing and writing. I got everything together and thought this will be easy give me eight months,” I got this”.
Fast forward to today and I’m sitting her scratching my head thinking what’s going on? Why am I still struggling with this and why haven’t I published my book? Then it occurred to me that I was afraid to receive? I was afraid to receive because I knew that this will be a successful program. I was afraid and I became so paralyzed by my own fears that I pinch off my receiving mode and everything came to a halt.
Lucky for me I work with an amazing group of people that never gave up on me. No matter how many times I stumbled or asked the same question’s they were there and open to receive in the form of listening. They received and then gave back what I needed to receive in order to move forward. They never gave up. I never gave up and I began to master the art of receiving. Thank you to all and thank you universal art of receiving.
So what have I learned? That receiving is a process and its a two way street, because receiving is not just about getting it is also about giving. The more you receive the more you have to give and the more you give the more you receive. I was also reminded that receiving is a universal law ant it will always prevail if you get out of the way and let it flow.
Welcome down the rabbit hole of possibility.
Receiving is good for all of us and like I said it is an art that takes practice. Just ask Neo about receiving and giving of space. He is becoming a master at it as he gives of his space and receives Conscious conversation from his cousin Little Man.
