Is receiving being lucky or blessed? A blessed situation is a situation bringing pleasure, contentment, or good fortune according to dictionaries.
To live such a wonderful situation, one must be open to receive. Are you? In your daily life, do you keep yourself open to wonders and to the unexpected?
When you plan something, do you leave some room to receive inspirations and ideas?
It is good, once a while, to look at life like a child entering a Disney location. Reality is there all around but magic is also there all around.
Being open to receive is that flexibility, that flexible perspective, that open-mindedness that is allowing such openness.
Do you allow yourself to receive as much as you give? Giving can be noble, so is receiving. And receiving can come with a lot of limited beliefs, with a lot of ego-veils making one not being open to receive, let alone receiving with joy.
And receiving is not only receiving from others but also receiving from the Universe.
When you receive a gift from someone, you probably did not choose that gift before, so try to do the same with the Universe. Letting the Universe sending you synchronicity, gifts, people, situations or even a wonderful blue sky is a blessing.
Be that child entering a Disney location, see the magic everywhere and in everything.
Everything for what you can be grateful for is a blessing.
And there is the blessing in disguised; that hard to see blessed situation, the one mostly accepted as a blessed situation long after the fact, once the understanding is completed.
A blessing is a miracle.
A blessing is a synchronicity.
A blessing is a stressless situation.
A blessing is also a gift from the Universe, sometimes received through someone else.
Receiving is part of a natural balance. One cannot only give without receiving, and one cannot only receive without ever giving. It is a Law of the Universe. Sometimes that personal balance is not made with the same gesture and not even the same day… and not even with the same person. You could go through a phase in your life when giving to someone is not an option or when receiving from someone is not an option, because the environment or your personal state in which you are seems to only be going one way. There will come the next phase where the balance will be restored. Equilibrium at its best.
Allow yourself to receive and allow Divine timing, the timing that is not an ego-based timing. Then, watch the blessings and be grateful for each one of them.
The more you will be grateful for all that you are and all that you have, the more blessed you will be and feel.
Have you ever heard this quote “To blessed to be stressed.”? I am not sure who said it first, but it is such a wonderful state of being.
Open yourself to receive and see the magic in everything and you will live that quote from time to time, if not always.
Take the time to list what you can see that you are receiving, whether it is tangible or not. Be mindful and be aware of your own perception about giving and receiving. Be mindful and aware of the conditions you put on receiving. Do you make receiving something wrong? Do you feel you “must” receive from an ego standpoint? Can you make receiving an open gesture which is not deciding what is best to receive, giving a specific ego-based value to what you can receive? I am inviting you to the time to write down how you feel about receiving.
Remember to Breathe in, let go of your ego-based thoughts and vision, see from your Soul and Love Out.
