How to be a Better Receiver


How to Be a Better Receiver

Giving is important in life, but so is receiving. Unless you know how to receive your good as well as how to give to others then you are literally pushing good things away from you and you are also blocking your good from coming into your life at all

There are several things you can do to become a better receiver but the first step is to believe that you deserve good things in your life. 

It also helps to believe and know that the universe is abundant and wants to give you your good, and that having good things in your life does not take away from anyone else's good. There is enough for all.

The next thing to do, if you want to start receiving more good things, is to form a vacuum. This means that you get rid of the things in your life that you don't want, to make room for the good things that you do want. 

Get rid of clutter in your house & your 
life to a form a vacuum to receive

For example you can't attract the soul mate of your dreams if your life is cluttered with other, less healthy, relationships. Let go of the people who aren't right for you, to make room for the person who is. He or she won't be attracted to you if there is no room in your life for them. 

This same principle holds true for things too. Do you hold onto stuff that is old, useless, outdated, or even broken, just in case you might need it someday? By doing this you are sending a clear message to the universe that you don't want something better, or you believe you don't deserve anything better, or even that you don't trust the universe to provide for you. So let go to make room for the better good that the universe has for you.

The next thing you can do to receive more of what you want is to make detailed and specific lists of the good things you want. Then visualize the things you want through the use of treasure maps, which are basically pictures and images of the things you want placed on a board, or in a notebook, so you can look at them everyday and see yourself having them.

Use affirmations to further increase your ability to receive. Here are some good ones, especially for manifesting abundance into your life:

  • I prosper wherever I turn and I know that I deserve prosperity of all kinds.
  • The more grateful I am, the more reasons I find to be grateful.
  • I pay my bills with ease.
  • I have money for everything I need.

Another thing that will help you be a better receiver is to learn and practice forgiveness. An unforgiving spirit can literally block good things from coming into your life.
  Along with practicing forgiveness, you'll want to appreciate what you already have, and be grateful for your blessings. Gratitude and appreciation are attractive energies. 

Tithing or giving back to the universe about ten percent of your net income is another practice that can bring more good things into your life. Give to your church, your source of spiritual inspiration, or to those charities you believe in.
The last step is to let it go. After you have made your lists, visualized and made treasure maps, said your affirmations, etc., then trust that the universe will bring your good to you at the right and perfect time without you struggling and straining to make it happen.

  • Whenever you receive anything from anyone, thank them and be appreciative even if it isn't something you need or want. Then pass it on to someone who can use it. If you are always refusing what people or the universe want to give you, that can create a block to your good coming into your life.
  • Stop talking about what you lack, and put your focus on what you have and on your blessings.

    Let people teach you what they know

    People might want to give you flowers. Receive them gratefully.

Produce from someone's garden should be received 
with thanks, especially something as delicious as these raspberries.
