Week 4 – The “Gift” is the Gold!

There is REAL power in the GIFT – ofbothGiving and the Receiving.

A GIFT can take many different forms – a compliment, a kind word, an offer of help, an act of service, or a physical gift. 

The REAL gift of giving is giving without any reciprocal expectations, without any expectation of personal gain for ourselves.  Eliminating any selfish reasons for providing an act of service to another.  The intention behind the gift must be pure and of genuine service to others. 

Receiving for most of us, it takes practice and healthy introspection to accept and to sincerely say “thank you” when we receive a GIFT.  

Personally, I haven’t got enough fingers and toes to count the number of times I have heard myself dismissing or deflecting a gift from others.  One of the real dangers of not accepting the gift is the perception the giver may feel disbelieved or even insulted.  Which is not ideal, because, when we never truly acknowledge or accept the “gift”, it halts the ABUNDANT flow. 

Instead the reason behind our deflection, or rejection of a gift, is more likely to be related to.. brace yourself …. our self-worth.  Yep, I said it.  How we feel about ourselves.  What we think we deserve.

Just imagine for one second if we accepted ALL the gifts as they were truly intended, as a precious GIFT of love and light! Imagine the joy and ABUNDANCE which would flow into our lives. 

Let the flow in.. there MUST be FLOW for us to grow!

  1. Well said! I am ashamed to say how frequently I discounted or rejected the gift of a compliment. Although I thought I was acting humble, what I was really doing saying the complimenter was wrong or, worse yet, a liar.

    Once I identified what I was really doing, it was much easier to receive because I did not want to demean the giver in any way. Practicing that, I found myself recognizing my own self worth. Truly, what goes around really does come around.

    Thank you so much for sharing. May we all grow in the flow!

  2. So very true. Loved when you said, “One of the real dangers of not accepting the gift is the perception the giver may feel disbelieved or even insulted. Which is not ideal, because, when we never truly acknowledge or accept the “gift”, it halts the ABUNDANT flow.” That really hit home with me. Thanks.
