Feeling is Receiving

Updated: Feb 27

I struggled with receiving for a long time...

I would shy away from or bounce off compliments, I found it hard to ask for financial support or charge money for my work, I tried to do everything single-handedly, but when I failed and people would offer their help I would consider myself a looser rather than feeling deserving of the support...

Last month I decided to intentionally focus my energy on the art of receiving and explore what this meant for me...

I surfed the stream of thoughts that steamed from the word 'receive'....Support, joy, material objects, opportunities, new friendships, love, happiness, money, inspiration, wisdom, guidance, gifts, synchronicities, healing...wholeness...

FULLness?...

This took me back to when I was in my teens and my best friend and I would always talk about the “empty feeling” the “void” inside that we just couldn't quite put our finger on...

I have come to learn that the art of receiving is the art of allowing, and to allow we don't need to try and do anything, but simply return to our natural, surrendered state...

As I practised surrender, I practised feeling and realised that to allow is to FEEL and to feel is to receive...

There were still some places I had closed off...

Growing up frustrated by my extreme sensitivity I shut down my feeling capacity to protect myself...

I learnt to numb out, eat over, push down the build up of 'feelings' in my belly and escape the uncomfortability of my body...

But, there have been many times were feeling has served me and in fact saved me...

Feeling helps me connect with my intuition...

Feeling had directed me...

Feeling helps me receive God/Source...

Feeling has even helped me heal...

When I suffered from panic attacks I would purposefully and intentionally sink into the fear and dive deep into the feeling of panic eventually coming out the other end and realising I was okay... Strengthening and expanding my 'trust zone'...

Feel your fears and face them...

And... feeling has saved me by listening to my strong emotional signals and following their direction...

Our feelings are our tentacles and our body really is a part of the spiritual too. Our body is the foundation of our five senses and beyond. To receive fully we must learn to receive fully here first...

I expanded into my ability to receive by bringing all my sensitivities back to life through completely feeling in my body....listening...adjusting...aligning...enjoying...

When you I allow yourself to feel you will always receive what you most need in that moment.
