I took my mom up on her offer to babysit because yesterday was just one of those days. We were stuck in the house all day, it was raining, nobody was particularly joyful. A massage. Yes, I can do that.
The opposite of receiving is resisting and I find I’m doing that an awful lot lately. Resisting the bubble that comes creeping up and whispers, take a few hours, get out by yourself. I fight it. I don’t have a babysitter, we’re too busy. Another time when it’s more convenient. Resisting.
When my massage began, I found myself still tensed up. Unable to let go and receive the magic in her hands. I prayed to be released from that tension, from the resisting and in turn I had the most wonderfully relaxing massage. It opened up my mind, it relaxed my body, I remembered to breathe.
“What you resist persists” – Carl Jung
When you’re open to receiving, you’re open to love, to abundance, to joy, to happiness. On the flip side, when we’re rigid, we’re resisting and blocking the goodness from coming in. We’re blocking our own beautiful life from being as full and as beautiful as it should be.
Designing your Life means you’re open to the possibilities for you. You’re open to exploring and you’re open to receiving.
Are you standing rigid in your life? Are you ignoring your whispers? Do you have a dream for your life that you’re telling yourself can’t really happen?
When you’re open to receiving, that’s when change happens.
Let’s break down those walls. Let’s be open to receiving more joy, better health, a new outlook… life the way you deeply want it to be.
