Over the holidays I noticed that when I was being given gifts the first words out of my mouth were, “Thank you. You are too generous.” And I had the conscious awareness that I was a bit uncomfortable with receiving people’s generosity. Not so much from friends but from family, particularly immediate family.
I set aside time to discover, explore and release the beliefs and influences around this attitude and behavior. I found several limiting subconscious beliefs and attitudes. The two most prominent were:
- I can take care of myself. I don’t need your help. Don’t you think I can provide for myself?
- Feeling small like a little girl and not a grown up.
My channeling guides always tell people when they ask about abundance, that they do not have a money problem they have a receiving problem and here I was faced with the same issue myself.
It’s gone now thank goodness! I accessed the part of me responsible for these beliefs and attitudes, cleared them and replaced them with gratitude.
If you have a receiving problem then how can Universe give to you the abundance that you seek?
If you have trouble receiving a gift from a friend, family member, a stranger then how can Universe bless you with what you desire?
Not just with money but also with receiving love, joy, promotion, success, opportunities, inspiration, creativity, change etc….
If these words resonate with you take some time to clear the limiting beliefs and energies holding your discomfort with receiving in place, and start 2013 in a whole new vibration.
A vibration of an open hand and an open heart to receive.
Ester – this really speaks to me as well. It is so clear to me now that I was raised to be over-humble. Which translates in many as was not being worthy, always apologizing, etc. Thanks for helping me see this. I have been following you for some time now and am a big fan.
Wonderful insight Bob
Thanks Esther! 🙂
