Learning how to receive
Many of us, especially women, do not know how to receive from the universe or from the universe through other people.
We cut ourselves off from source, which IS abundance, by not being able to fully receive that abundance that is source.
This is something that I have personally struggled with all of my life. I have had so much pain connected with receiving, or rather, not receiving. It has been a personal mission of mine to uncover the source of this issue and release it within myself and to help others do the same.
Here is a meditation that has helped me through this issue and has allowed me to start to receive all the good that the universe has to offer me. I hope that it helps you, too.
Find a comfortable place, either sitting or lying down. Maybe light a candle, or burn your favourite essential oil.
Close your eyes and take 3 deep breaths.
Say each of these sentences in turn on every out breath, fully feeling each word contained within. Feel your body's response to the words, feel for any constriction or tension.
"The universe gives me everything that I want"
"I allow myself to receive it all"
"I am honoured. Thank you"
As you repeat these sentences you will begin to gain a greater understanding of what it means for the universe to GIVE, without trade, without barter, without justification, just giving. You will start to feel what it means to RECEIVE when something is given freely by another.
Feel any constriction in your breath as you say these words. Many of us are holding on to emotional pain connected with receiving - especially women.
For me it felt like a constriction of my chest, making my in-breath difficult, like the feeling of grief has on your chest. I felt the same constriction in my throat, again, of grief that was unexpressed.
As you feel whatever emotional pain you find, allow it to come out in any way you want it to, cry, cough, sigh,... As you allow it to come out name it "All of this pain, grief, fear, sadness, is being released now"
Visualise a bright white light of joy coming into your body with every in breath, and the pain being released from your body in the out breath.
Continue to either say the mantra out loud or just in your mind.
Feel the peace and joy contained within those words.
You are a divine child of the universe and the universe has been trying to give you everything that you have ever wanted. It's your time to receive, to allow yourself to accept your divinity, to allow the universe to honour you.
Use this mantra whenever you feel fear, scarcity, lack, unworthy, etc. Allow the truth of it to override your minds lies.

Beautiful Claire. Thank you. It is interesting that the essence of the feminine nature is to receive and yet it is so difficult for most of us to do that. I too, am on a healing path to really receive with grace. Your posts always resonate with me as I feel that we are walking side by side in our uncovering. xxx
