For years I blocked the flow of prosperity in my life and I didn’t even realize it.  Some of my loved ones had labeled me as selfish and so I began to think that was true.  Many folks I met believed it was “better to give then to receive.” And so I began to believe that it was BAD to receive.  I began to notice that many people gave with strings attached. Sometimes those strings were simply expectations.  

I couldn’t stand all those strings and expectations.  I didn’t like believing that I was selfish.  So, I began to strive to be independent and not need things from people.  I became a hesitant receiver, and sometimes even a poor receiver.

People would try to give me help or assistance, gifts and other things and I would reject them, fearing the strings and expectations.  

I preferred not to owe anyone.  

I preferred to feel free.

And so, I actually became a really poor receiver.  

I was a great giver and a poor receiver.

And then I started to have really intense financial challenges and I had no idea how to get out of them.  It was really scary.  

With the help of my spiritual practitioner I began to work on praying to be receptive.

And those prayers worked in a most amazing way!  

I began to reorient myself to be a good and gracious receiver. 

Within a very short period of time I had enough money coming in to more than cover my bills and I paid down my debt faster than I could ever have imagined.

Being receptive was the key.  

The guilty don’t feel worthy of good.  The unconscious guilt will block our receptivity.

I began to think of it this way:  Everything I receive is from God and everything I give I give to God.

It doesn’t really matter who’s giving or who is receiving – It’s all about being in the flow of the All Good.  

I learned to be able to give to anyone when I felt called and not do it from obligation.  I learned to receive from from anyone and not feel an attachment. That felt miraculous.

I began to experience more affluence, more abundance and more prosperity right away.

If you don’t feel prosperous, look carefully at your thoughts.  Are you a good receiver?  

Start to make an inquiry into your giving and receiving abilities.  If you’re not feeling the flow, maybe you’re not willing to receive?  Take a look and see what you find in your heart!

Here’s an affirmation:   I AM willing to be receptive to the All Good of God!
