l give and receive. Energy enters me and leaves me.
The flow is healthy, stagnation is unhealthy, so i receive and give.
When i speak i give, when i listen i receive.
But this thread is about receiving, the art of reception.
In order for me to receive, i must first stop giving, i cant speak and listen at the same time.
So i put myself silent, now i can connect, now i can receive.
Silence makes me able to receive, but to what?
To what my attention chooses. I must be silent to open myself but then my attention will choose to what energy i am receptive.
If i pay attention to others i will be receptive to them. I will listen them, feel them, enter them, i will enter their worlds, be compassionate, i
will be emphatic.
But i can pay attention to myself, connect with my inner self, my soul, my consciousness. If i want answers from my soul, i first ask, then i must
remain silent and pay attention to myself, the answer will come, a thought, a feeling, an image, an idea, my higher self will send it.
I can also ask to whoever is around, i can ask my guides, my guardian angels, i can call them what i want, i can ask to whoever takes care of me,
because i know i am cared, we all are. Silence and attention is also the way to receive, to connect, to listen, to get.
When i ask someone if he got what i meant... i was sending energy, but i want to know if he received it well. Was he silent? Was he paying attention
Life is giving and receiving, if someone wants to give, other must receive, its like this, we all must know how to give and receive. If we only want
to receive or give, we stop the flow, we stop the balance.
So yes, we must know how receive too, to connect and open ourselves to the energy of others. People, animals, angels, spirits, higher selves, god, if
we wish to connect and receive we must know the value of silence and paying attention.
In astrology the sun is the life giver, it represent the giving. The moon is the life receiver, it represents receiving. One shows you how to give,
be creative and give, the other shows you how to receive, be silent, pay attention, stop talking, be quiet.
If someone wants to give, there must be a receiver.
Man are natural givers, woman are natural receivers, they are both equal in importance.
We have to train both skills, balance positive and negative, male and female, white and dark, duality in balance happens when we are good giving and
But this thread is about the art of receiving because the art and merit of giving is widely understood and accepted, but receiving is often
misunderstood, people often block their receptive side because it is related to selfishness. But selfishness happens only if we want to receive but we
don't want to give.
