I need that reminder often! It's so easy to forget. For many of us, culture and religion instilled very profound messages in our psyche and trying to change the pattern is not easy and doesn't feel good.
These sayings make me realize 2 things:
1- It doesn't have to be "it's either me or them and since I don't want to be selfish I will put everyone else first and then if there is time, if I have energy, I will do something for myself". We can change the paradigm into a "I will take care of myself AND then give from the overflow of love and joy.
2- It also reminds me of this quote from Marianne Williamson:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
By loving ourselves, by knowing that we matter, by knowing and freely express our uniqueness, we give other people permission to do the same. Let's give our daughters and sons, our friends, our family permission to be who they are! Let's show them how it's done!!!
Let's not take that gift away from anyone. Learn to receive gracefully:
1- Look in the eyes.
2- Simply say thank you.
3- Acknowledge what you receive from the Universe, make a daily gratitude list.
4- Imagine your heart wide open.
5- You don't need to downplay a compliment or deny it or go into a compliment war.
It is uncomfortable at first but it's so worth it to get over the discomfort. The connection with our fellow human beings strengthen. We are more open to all the blessings surrounding us to come into our experience. The way we perceive the world changes. We fill out our well and give from the overflow of love, gratitude and joy. I tell you, it's a service to humanity to know how to receive gracefully. Try it!
I was guided to shoot a short video to share about the upcoming workshop: Harvest Muse where we will explore our relationship to abundance and our capacity to receive gracefully.
During the video, I received the unexpected visit of a very loving cat, I didn't cut out my reaction. The timing was perfect! I tried all day to shoot this video and every time, it didn't feel right. I guess I needed the presence of this loving creature that gave me the opportunity to receive love. Check it out!
