Did you know that opening your heart to receiving is one of the pre-requisites for having an abundant life?
Most people are GREAT givers. They are highly generous. They give and give constantly. It makes them feel good about themselves
But, to experience abundance in your life, you have to complete the energetic circuit of both giving AND receiving. You have to create balance by allowing the flow of universal energy to move in both directions—to and from—so that it can become complete, whole, balanced. You have to become a GENEROUS RECEIVER!
- When someone does you a favour, you immediately feel you owe them something or need to repay them in some way
- You feel embarrassed or awkward when someone gives you a compliment and are unable to respond openly and appreciatively. You may even try to negate the compliment.
- You often say ... "not now...maybe later"
- You tend to criticize yourself or judge your mistakes or flaws harshly
- When you receive a windfall, find money, or win something, you often give it away
- You find it hard to forgive someone who has hurt or harmed you
- You feel awkward, unworthy or embarrassed receiving gifts, awards, or promotions
- You resist changing any aspect of your life, even if it isn’t working
- You are struggling with money or lack in your life
- You have failed relationships, no relationship, or relationships where your needs are not being met
- Your life isn’t the way you wish it could be

Universal energies respond to your energy. So, if you have built emotional walls for ANY reason, even in just one area of your life, you have created a solid energetic force field that acts like a shield, preventing good things from getting through
When the universal flow brings wonderful benefits close to you, it is deflected off your energetic field. So, the benefits go, instead, to someone who does not have this resistance
It doesn't matter that your intention is to protect yourself in one aspect of your life. The universe cannot discern the reason for your resistance ... only that the resistance is present. You are, therefore, inadvertantly blocking ALL areas of your life from receiving. So, you are missing all sorts of wonderful things that are rightfully yours--opportunities, money, new friendships, relationships, and the good things in life!
