Give what you most want to come back…
Self Love Sunday.
In the interview with Oprah and Eckhart Tolle you hear the dialogue about with-holding. You need to give what you must want in order to be abundant, Oprah concludes. Acknowledge what is around you, it is gratitude, Eckhart says. With-holding isn’t possible in the Universe. What if the Sun withheld its light? Or Nature stopped nurturing us with life and renewal? Giving is not just a response, rather, giving is a self love strategy. It is one way you can have what you want, a practice that you want to develop and master.
Whether it’s in business or personal relationships, the more you hold back, the less you receive. You may have decided at some point that your strategy didn’t work, the strategy that was open, vulnerable, willing and committed. It happens. You were hurt, treated badly, got fired, did what you felt you could and found it wasn’t good enough. You stopped giving.
It’s not that you stopped to giving to others in itself, but also to yourself. That’s where the real harm is done. In this modern-day culture where everyone appears to expect more and pay less, where there are more choices and no loyalty to them or him or her, where we opt out more often than we dive in, it’s inevitable that you feel you have nothing left to give. No one else is either, it seems.
“I am not going to get hurt again,” you say. “I am not going to feel that way again,” you exclaim. You stopped giving or only give when you believe you are going to get back. Have you noticed how well that works? Feelings attract what you want. Thus, if ambivalence is the feeling, you receive indecisiveness and lack of attention. If you practice putting up walls, staying at home, and surrounded only by that which makes you comfortable, you are captive to your fears and what you are afraid of appears all too regularly.
Where do you need to radiate gratitude?
I have been a Michael Beckwith follower for many years. On a Sunday July 12th broadcast he discusses gratitude in the the same light. He preaches about the power of spiritual alchemy and sharing and giving all of you in the moment which causes you to SHINE in a way that you were meant to. Think about where you need to radiate and shine in life, because there’s no room for fear, which is what with-holding does.
Radiating gratitude is only going to bring you more of what you want. It’s spiritual alchemy, according to Beckwith.
In your life, today, a practice of Self Love is to radiate gratitude. You are your own Sun, shining, always ready to give to the world. You don’t miss a day because the Universe is Energy and you were selected to participate. As the Sun, you continue to produce and don’t have time to complain about your purpose. Your purpose, you see, is giving more of you.
Do you need someone to remind you how to shine? Cynthia Djengue provides dream sessions, desire sessions, and Know your Beliefs coaching for those that need a boost in becoming more of who they are.
