How To Receive Abundance In Your Life

Is there something you really want in your life?

Are you open to receiving it?

You might be blocking yourself from receiving the abundance the Universe wants to give you, without even knowing it.

I used to have a difficult time accepting compliments. It may seem like something simple, but by not accepting even the simple, beautiful gifts from the Universe, I was saying “No thank you, I’m not ready to receive the gifts you have for me.”

The Universe often works through others and will bring messages and gifts through them.  When you say “yes” to receiving, you send a message that you are ready and willing to receive all the gifts that are meant for you.

If you feel uncomfortable receiving how can you expect the Universe to bring you more?  Say “yes” to the small things and start opening yourself to receive all the abundance the Universe brings your way.

I love that more people are starting to focus on what they can do to make a difference in the world and looking for ways to be of service.  I also think it’s important to have a flow of giving and receiving. If you only give you stop the flow because in order to give someone has to receive. Both are equally important.

We are often taught as children the importance of giving, which is wonderful, but I think it’s important to also teach our children that it is okay to receive. I know so many people that have a hard time receiving. They don’t allow others the gift of giving to them.

What stops you from accepting the gifts offered to you? Do you feel worthy? Do you think it’s “good” to give but not receive?

Open your heart to receiving and you might be surprised by what the Universe brings into your life. When you say “yes” to receiving, you are telling the Universe, “Bring it on! I’m ready to receive all the abundance and gifts you have for me!”  Of course you don’t have to say yes to everything. You want to always check in with your heart and see if something resonates with you.

Start practicing the art of receiving with some of the small, little blessings and gifts offered to you. The gifts might come in the form of someone giving you a compliment, a friend offering to pay for your meal or someone holding a door open for you.  It can be a lot of fun once you start accepting the blessings the Universe has for you. Open up to all the abundance of the Universe and enjoy the flow of life.

    I love this Tammy! I remember when I did not allow my younger brother to pick up the tab and I was more forceful in how I approached the situation thinking that is what I was supposed to do, later realized how I took the gift of giving away for him. He wanted to do this for me so he could contribute yet I was not capable of receiving from a space of love and gratitude at the time. One of my best lessons in knowing that the more I receive, the more I can give back…
