Our card for the day, Sunday, June 16th, is taken from the Magical Mermaids and Dolphins Oracle Cards – Let Yourself Receive – “Allow others to give you loving care. Receive without guilt or apologies.”
Those of us on the spiritual path, Lightworkers, have such a hard time accepting help from others. Why is that? Why is it we can help others and yet we are unable to accept help for ourselves? Perhaps it goes back to that feeling unworthy issue most of us seem to have. I know for myself when someone offers something whether help or just to do something nice for me, I stumble over my words, “oh you shouldn’t have”, or ” no really I can’t take that”, or “no that’s okay, I’m fine, I don’t need this”. Why is it so hard to just take whatever help is offered and say “thank you”? So many of us wonder why in spite of all the affirmations we say, the meditations we do and the light we hold in our hearts, why is it that we are struggling with making ends meet or losing our homes and so on.
It is one thing to give but we have to be able to receive. We have to be OPEN to receiving! I think part of our problem with receiving is that we have been taught from an early age that “it is more blessed to give than to receive”. However there is a need for balance in the Universe. If all we do is give and don’t allow ourselves to be open to receiving, we create an imbalance in our lives. When we give we open that flow that allows room in our lives to then receive, but if we only give and don’t receive then we see that show up in our lives as lack. We are unbalanced. When we allow ourselves to receive, we then have more to give. We give and receive and give some more, and in allowing that flow of giving and receiving, we then create balance in our lives
This card is a reminder that we are deserving of receiving help from others in whatever form it takes. As we open ourselves to receiving as well as to giving, we create balance in our lives and in the universe. We live in an abundant universe, there is more than enough for everyone. So open yourself to receive of that abundance! Have a great day everyone! ~Namaste~
