Over the past few weeks, I have been given the same message over and over again- Receive what you ask for.
We can invest so much energy and effort into trying to manifest, create, call in, seek out, grasp, and cling. So many of us are trying to figure out the tricks and shortcuts, calling on our logical minds to solve a problem that we cannot see. Our blind spots, the areas we are afraid to address, make it feel more complicated and out of reach.
My message today is to simplify it all. Instead of running in circles, take a moment to sit in stillness, quiet your mind, and ask:
What have I been seeking, that is actually before me? And what are my barriers to receiving?
We build walls to try to keep from feeling vulnerable. We hide away from life. We run away from what is approaching. And this is all that stops us from having more love, abundance, freedom, connection, and joy.
The poet Rumi stated, "Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within...
(i.e. What are you afraid will happen if you allow yourself to have what you want?)
I listen to people frequently talk about what is lacking in life. They visualise, speak, imagine, and work towards their ambitions and goals. They work so hard to create.
These are also the same people who have a hard time receiving. They reject compliments, support, affection, recognition. And if you refuse to receive what you want, you can never expect to have it.
The reason we resist is because we are afraid. We invest time and energy into stopping events, or trying to control others, because we are afraid of what would happen next.
My question for you:
Are you stopping yourself from receiving what you desire because you also fear making the change?
Your comfort zone is too small for your biggest dreams.
Your daily comforts and habits are minuscule, compared to your purpose.
Your ‘normal’ is duller than your deepest desires.
What are you afraid of?
What are your...
