QUIZ: How good at you at receiving?

Take a moment for this quiz. It’s worth it.
1. Do you find yourself saying any of the following statements…
  • Why am I the only one doing this?
  • Doesn’t any one else notice the trash/dishes/paperwork etc.?
2. Emotionally do you ever feel…
  • unappreciated?
  • taken for granted?
  • unacknowledged?
  • resentful?
3. Physically do you ever feel…
  • exhausted?
  • depleted?
  • like you run out of gas?
4. Spiritually do you feel…
  • empty?
  • longing?
5. Do you find yourself thinking?
  • When is it going to be my turn?
  • What about me?
If you recognize yourself in the questions above, here’s the deal – you have a receiving deficit!
And the problem with not receiving enough in your life is that it gets in the way of you feeling happy, fulfilled, vibrant and overall deeply nourished.

So, how do you strengthen your ability to receive?

Aside from joining me for The Receiving Retreat on March 26th, here are two simple techniques to get you flexing your receiving muscle.
1. Acknowledge your need.
This can be as simple as saying to yourself “WHAT ABOUT ME?” This statement is a powerful acknowledgment that you need and want to receive.
2. Receive Compliments
  • Pay special attention to any compliments that may be coming your way
  • Acknowledge them
  • Breath in the compliment
Deeply accepting compliments is like starting your weight training with 1lb weights. It lets you get accustomed to receiving more and more in different ways in your life.
Start with these small steps and you’ll eventually be able to receive more in your life and feel more and more nourished!
