Receive

The Inspirational word of the week is….

Receive: (verb) 1. to take into one’s possession. 2. to have something bestowed. 3. to have delivered.

Family, friends, house, volunteering, writing, the stuff that fills my day just seems to keep piling up. Although I want to write an inspiring blog post, my friendly blog reader, all of the should do’s, could do’s and have-to’s keep swirling around in my head.

I realize that it’s time for me to stop, to let go of thinking I have to get everything done “right now” and just focus on getting into receiving mode.This is hard for me, because I am addicted to getting things done. I feel like I’m running behind and that if I don’t constantly focus on getting my work done, I’ll end up missing something important and then…….. It’s exhausting to even think about it.

God (my Captain, the Universe, the Divine……) wants to fill me up with all of the love and peace I need to feel better, but I have to be willing to receive it. In order to do that I need to make time to stay open, without expectations, and let go of the chatter of anxiety and fear that gets built up in my head. I need to uncover space within myself in order to acknowledge my creator’s intentions for me, and be rooted into why I’m alive.

Although I don’t understand how all of this works, it doesn’t really matter because it’s not up to me to know how.

I’m trying to focus on being like the beach……..it doesn’t have to do anything in order for the waves to come. The beach just is.

“Just because I don’t know now, doesn’t mean I won’t know then. Just because I don’t know how, doesn’t mean I won’t know when.”

My job is to be open to receiving the guidance when it’s offered and then to pass it along to you, my friendly blog reader. Whether or not you receive it, is completely up to you.

Here’s a tip to know whether something is worth receiving .ready-to-hug1

The “Test of Three”.

  1. Is it true?
  2. Is it useful?
  3. Is it good?

I hope you’ve found this true, useful and good, my friendly blog reader.

Have a fantastic week and I’ll be back on Monday with the Inspirational song of the week.
