If You Truly Want to Change Your Life, Allow Yourself to Receive It

It’s interesting to watch how people react when they’re put in the position of someone else doing something for them…

Something they’ve been taught to do and made to feel guilty if they don’t do it…

It says a lot about their mindset…

I’m talking about clearing the table…

When we go to restaurants or cafes, we expect to leave everything on the table and someone else will clear it…

That’s a given…

And I’m not talking about simply shirking responsibility when it’s a combined effort…

But during my time being involved with running a bed and breakfast and small retreats when there’s only a small number of
people in a more informal setting and relaxing and being waited on is part of the deal, it’s interesting to see who feels the
need to clear their own table and take everything into the kitchen and who is comfortable with the status quo…

We ran a retreat several years ago that was booked for a group of women who were all caring for their husbands who had
Alzheimers. The retreat was booked to give them time to relax and take time out for themselves, but the complete opposite
happened…

We were looking forward to giving them the chance to relax and to be put first for a change but they were totally out of their comfort zone. They were uncomfortable with other people doing everything for them, even though they had been doing everything for someone else…

They had a really tough time relaxing and letting go…

They felt guilty and embarrassed…

It’s also evident with a lot of women who are mothers…

You don’t even have to be caring for someone else to feel uncomfortable with it…

You can be at any stage of your life or career…

It can be that detrimental that it will stop someone from asking for a hand when they need help…

It comes from the belief we’re taught as children…

That it’s selfish to be a taker…

How dare you expect someone else to do something for you when you’ve got two arms and two legs and can do it
yourself…

You work hard and pay your own way in this world…

We’re taught that it’s good to be a giver but it’s wrong to be a taker…

The problem with this scenario is that when you don’t allow yourself to be a taker, you’re taking away the opportunity for
someone else to be a giver…

Sure, you don’t want to go the complete opposite and be the never ending taker without giving back, but it’s ok to stop and
actually allow someone else to do something for you…

To allow someone else to give to you…

Don’t see someone else clearing the table when it’s your turn to relax as being selfish…

Allow the other person the chance to give that gift to you…

When you give, someone else has to receive…

Do you think they’re being selfish by accepting what you’re giving them or doing for them from your heart?

No…

It works both ways…

You don’t have to be doing everything for everyone else all of the time…

Allow someone else the pleasure of doing something for you and allow yourself to receive it with gratitude…

Same goes for paying the bill…

If someone else says, ‘I’ve got this!’

Instead of saying, ‘Oh, no…I’ve got it…’ or ‘Oh, no…I’m paying for my own…’

Simply say, ‘Thank you,’ and allow someone else to do that for you regardless of your thoughts about their financial
situation…

If someone pays you a compliment…

Instead of saying, ‘Oh, this ole thing…’ or making an excuse for why you believe they’re just saying it to be nice and…

Simply say, ‘Thank you,’ and accept that someone has noticed something nice about you…

Don’t take away their opportunity to give that to you…

Why is it so impossible for someone to think something nice about you and then feel compelled to tell you?

Accept it with grace and allow yourself to receive it in the warmth of full glowing technicolor…

Allow others to give…

Allow yourself to receive…

It’s your birthright.

Receiving plays a huge role in manifesting the life that’s burning with desire in your heart…

If you don’t allow yourself to receive, how can you be open to receiving the life you desire?

You currently don’t have the life you want because the beliefs you’ve been taught to live your life by are blocking you from
receiving it.

Change your beliefs, change your mindset, change your life ===> http://bit.ly/unleashyourmanifestingmojo
