Gratitude, Giving, and Receiving

by | Dec 22, 2008 | Heart Centered Living | 0 comments

You’ve probably read or heard that gratitude is a key to successful manifestion of what we are choosing for our lives.  I’ve heard this, too.  We’ve also all been told that it is better to give than to receive, although I’ve often thought this a foolish remark.  After all, if everyone is giving and no one receiving, how could that work????

Yesterday, while doing a section of a program by Coco Fossland, www.WorldChangingBusiness.com, I learned something new.  On the recording I was listening to, Coco was explaining how, if we want to manifest our dreams, we have to be open to receiving them, and that receiving is just as important as giving.  Here are some of the insights she shared.

  • “When we receive, we give the other person the gift of abundance.”
  • “When we receive, we get to have what we want.”
  • “When we receive, we allow others to shine their light.”
  • “When we receive, we remember the abundance of the universe.”
  • “If you are not open to receiving, all the giving you do will not create what you are trying to manifest.  It just won’t work.”

So today, I suggest you take a good look at your beliefs around giving and receiving.  Where in your body are you blocked from receiving the things and experiences you are choosing for your life?  What can you do to open yourself to receive?

When you allow yourself to receive, you will have much more in your life to feel gratitude towards.  Increased receiving = increased opportunities for giving = increased opportunities for gratitude.  The result, overall, is increased abundance for everyone.  Wouldn’t that be truly wonderful?

A Spiritual Journey to New Earth (Gaia)

I awoke this morning after being in 2 other realms.  It was amazing that I remember so much of this experience, as my dreams fade away quickly upon arising.   Sometimes I get bits and pieces, snatches of memory later in this day, but nothing like the detail I remember of this travel to another dimension. This was no dream. It was real. I was on...
