The other day I was looking for a parking spot in a crowded area and so I asked for help. One appeared on the opposite side of the street. I didn’t feel like turning the car around on the tight street, so I ignored it and I circled the block. When I didn’t find anything else, I went back to get that spot and it was gone. Same thing happened again, I asked and I saw one, but it required me to turn the car in the other direction and I was lazy and didn’t take it. Consequently, I circled for 10 more minutes.
After 20 minutes of this, I realized that I was the one blocking my own receiving. I was saying I needed help, but I wasn’t accepting it. I was still trying to control it and do it the way I wanted.
When I realized that, first I started laughing to break the energy, and then I acknowledged that I was the one preventing my own good. I apologized to myself and to the Universe, and I got myself into the energy of receiving what I was asking for. I really felt into that energy and allowed myself to accept that which I was wanting. I asked one more time for help, and wouldn’t you know it, a spot opened up right in front of me.
Sometimes we ask for help but we block the very thing we’re asking for, and then we get mad at the Universe for not helping us. It’s not the Universe obstructing us; it’s our own selves. There are so many issues people have around receiving and what it means instead of simply allowing yourself to have the thing that you want.
It’s a skill and it takes practice. You have to hold a space of receptivity for the things that you want. Many would prefer to do and control the action (masculine energy), versus relaxing back into surrender (feminine energy). However, there is tremendous power in receiving and allowing.
This week, just be aware of where you block your own good. Awareness helps shift the patterns. Instead of getting mad about it, forgive yourself and make a different choice. Choose to receive that which you’re asking for. Change your mindset and breathe into any areas of restriction in your body. Open yourself up to have that which you desire. After all, the Universe really is here to support you. Allow, and receive, that assistance.
Me, Tina Germain, just sharing ways to make you the best you can be!
