I have been waiting for the Sun to move into the energy of the 2nd gate since I saw it was coming a few weeks ago. (It's in the Sun until May 10th) I think most of us need a reminder that we are deserving of being supported, of getting our needs met by others, and it is ok to relax into receiving. It’s kind of like an early Mother’s Day gift!!
Receiving is funny. In some aspects of my life, I receive like a champ and in other areas, I put up walls or feel guilty for letting others do things for me. It is certainly one of those areas that I am always working on and exploring.
How about you? Do you feel bad when others pick up the check or offer to do a favor for you? Do you RUSH to repay the lunch or favor? I am not saying that we should be wholly focused on getting our needs met and ignoring the needs of others. What I am suggesting is that when these gifts of money, time or kindness occur that we FULLY allow ourselves to receive it and show appreciation.
In addition to using this time to look at receiving it is also a perfect time to bring awareness and gratitude to all of the resources that you currently have. The opportunities that have fallen into your lap, that have led to new relationships and abundance. The more you focus your attention on all of the blessings in your life the more you are able to attract. These two concepts-Receiving and Appreciation- are essential to cultivate & practice if you want to ensure your vitality and well-being.
