Receiving Graciously…


Good morning all!

I’m often told, and quite vigorously by some, that it’s much better to give…

And that, indeed, I should do so vigorously too!

So, Reiki giver or receiver, which are you?

But please do stop and think before you buy into this ‘give, give, give’ mentality too deeply.

For life is all about balance – yin and yang…

So, it has to be ‘equally’ good to RECEIVE too.

And I’m all for that… 🙂

You see, most people rarely have a problem giving…

It makes you feel good about yourself.

But just remember none of us can give efficiently if the other person does not allow the receiving.

And if you’re a give, give, giver… there’ll come a time when you’ll have to receive it back!

Tenfold is a figure often mentioned.

So this week, let’s practice receiving graciously.

For it allows others to feel good in return.


Yes… a simple ‘Thank you’ will suffice.

Not the usual…

‘Oh no, I couldn’t possibly’, or…

‘Oh no, it’s too much’ – (as if you’re not worth it) or…

‘Oh no, for me’?! – (as if you don’t deserve it)

Well, you know what I mean, I’m sure.

So – graciously…

Just a simple thank you… 🙂

And then listen to what goes on in your head…

See where you’re really coming from.

See what you really feel about yourself.

But the other person doesn’t need to know all that!

Graciousness is your theme this week, OK?

It’s funny how life is so full of opposites:

Sunshine or rain.
Black or white
Happy or sad.
Sickness or health.
Poverty or abundance…

If you’re experiencing one aspect continually, then you’re resisting the natural flow of movement towards the other.

Make sense?

If you’re in constant pain – then stop resisting pleasure in your life.

Make sense?

If you’re having a poverty episode, stop resisting life’s abundance.

Making sense yet?

If you’re depressed and feeling down – stop resisting the joke!

Making no sense and funny just the same.

You see, your journey can be likened to an ocean crossing…

Short and choppy, like a drama queen in a soap opera, addicted to highs and lows whether physical, like food and drugs, or emotional like abusive relationships.


Still as a millpond, with all your sails up and going nowhere – perhaps you failed once and now won’t even bother trying again.

You look good, but life’s dull and boring.

Safe, pretty as a picture, but you might as well be dead. The puff has gone out of your sails.


Mega stormy, extreme junky, alive and vital – but often self-centred and not able to connect with others – the ultimate loner.

But, you could travel on an even keel – riding the powerful swell of the ocean – like a dolphin.

Happy, carefree, harmonious, connected and in tune with your environment and others.

Totally in, and of, the flow.

Gently rolling along in complete confidence knowing you’re at the helm and that you can ride through any storm and come out the other side safely.

So stop resisting the natural flow of movement!

If your life’s not working in any way, then trust yourself…

You’ll know what to do instinctively.

Follow your intuition… 🙂

If it feels comfortable, if there’s no resistance or tension in your body, if your mind stills and your mouth curls up into a smile, then it’s right for you.

Remember – if you’re struggling, even a tiny bit, you’re not doing it right.

Intuitively, I know the swell of energy is moving up again… so don’t resist.

Things are on the up – no matter what…

…so, just know – it is good enough to be true.

Happy sailings me hearties.

Have a POWERFUL weekend!

Judith 🙂
