The Flow of Giving and Receiving

I hadn't realized until I started my healing business that it was hard for me to receive. Clients would offer me extra money after the healing and I witnessed myself refusing it. It wasn't until about the fifth occasion when the client pointed out that I should look at why I have such a big problem receiving, didn't I think I was worthy enough to receive?. I thought about it for awhile and realized id been a person who always gave to others, whether it be money, a hand with a job, or even in the bedroom. It was certainly true there was apart of me that didn't think I was worthy enough, so I went about changing it I started excepting from others with an open heart and I soon realized how great it feels to receive and to give. Like I say balance is the key to everything and like Shakti Gawain said, "Receiving and giving are opposite energies that are inextricably linked together in the natural flow of life, like inhaling and exhaling. If one aspect of that cycle doesn't function, the entire cycle ceases to function and the life force cannot move freely."

It is just as blessed to receive as to give
"Q. It is pleasurable for me to give, but I have difficulty receiving. Can you help? -- F.H., New JerseyA. In the Bible, Acts 20:35, it states, "It is better to give than receive." Many of us have heard this and taken it to heart. We seem to have enormous confusion in this area: some with giving, receiving or both." sun-sentinel
