These episode was inspired because for most of my life I couldn’t receive. I always felt like I had to give, give, give, give, give. Through a lot of work, I realized that came from not feeling worthy, not feeling good enough, not feeling loved. And then someone one day said to me, how can I expect to create what I desire? When I cannot even receive what is being given to me? That was a huge aha for me. I could never receive a compliment. I brush it off, or someone did something, or got me something I felt obligated to give right away in return. In addition to that aha moment, meeting my husband was a huge support and learning how to receive more. I had never before been in a relationship where the give and take was so balanced. We really aren’t taught to receive. At least I wasn’t maybe in a super enlightened or aware household. I have yet to meet someone who talks regularly with their kids about receiving. And if you do hat’s off Can you receive a compliment? Or do you wave it off and immediately recite all your faults? If you get a gift, do you feel you need to give something immediately in return? If someone is kind and offers to support you, do you shoo them away? Why do we struggle to receive like anything you can learn Learn how to do this and simply need practice building your muscles. For some, giving more could make them feel like they are in charge and in control. Why receiving could make them feel out of control. How many of you out there feel the need to be in control all the time? I used to be in control. I’ve learned through life. I’m not the one in control. I only have control over how I respond. What I think what I say what I do, and control my husband can’t control my clients. Definitely cannot control it. Cats. When you learn to lighten up and realize that you can find more peace. How do we receive more? No, you are good enough. Worthy in love. I believe it all boils down to this You are good enough to receive. You do not need to do anything to receive and if someone tells you otherwise, get down.

What are you choosing? identify any fears that hold you back from receiving what you deserve. Then work on releasing those fears so that you can embrace your desires more fully. When your fear comes up, have a conversation. Ask whose voices that dismantle your fear and get to the truth. What kind of giver you? Do you truly give to others with an open heart and freely? Or do you have another motivation? When do you give from love or from an expectation or the expectations coming from you or others? Examine the gifts you give and figure out what motivates you. Are you giving out of obligation or to make yourself feel better? Do you give and really expect to receive. That’s not a really great place to give from. Give from your heart. Compliment someone without expecting anything in return. Practice giving openly. Remember what you put out you get back

When I don’t give from my heart, and from openness, and give from a need that needs to be fulfilled, or obligation, I am exhausted. Giving from a needy place creates resentment, feeling like a victim and anger. Giving from a full heart is loving, joyful, and fills me up. Resist the urge to deny the gift. If you are challenged when it comes to receiving your natural reaction might be to deflect or reject a compliment, help or gift that is offered. How do you think the giver would feel if you brush off a compliment, or refuse an offer of help? Most will be saddened if they can see you don’t believe you’re worthy, or perhaps even angry or upset, as your rejection might signal a belief that the gift wasn’t given with the best intentions.

Practice having gratitude until you are neutral about the gift and don’t have any negative judgments. Do this until you have fully received the gift with love. Practice thanking someone for an abstract gift, like a compliment or an offer to help or something that is sentimental. These gifts usually come from love.
