Receiving and believing...

For some reason, I really struggled this time with sitting down and writing. I felt like whatever I needed to say this month, really needed to come from heart because I know that it is the place where the genuine words really come from. I feel like everyone is really shifting & changing right now. If you've noticed, some of the people that are closest to you end up being on the same page as you and are going through the same type of process or feel similar energies. Like attracts like.

We just had a New Moon on Monday and we have entered a new cycle of change. There are a few things that have been coming up a lot for me and perhaps you can relate. First thing, if you want to bring something new into your life, you can't hold onto the old with a death grip. Make the space otherwise whatever you choose to manifest will only deflect as it will have no place to go if you don't let it in!

The second thing is, allow your yourself to receive. Receiving is synonymous with success. If you set your clear intentions, what you need will show up for you on your path but you must open your arms. I heard several times that if someone offers you something, gracefully take it and be grateful for it. It keeps the good energy flowing! You can't always give. The pendulum swings both ways.

The last thing is, that we need to have faith. The phrase "false hope" confuses me. Isn't hope pure? It's never false. Maybe we feel defeated before we even start sometimes. What is the difference between hope and faith? Hope is a light in the darkness. Faith is: knowing that no matter what even in the worst of times, you never give up. Faith does not waiver. It is constant. When life has bullied us, that's when our faith should be the strongest.

With that said, I decided that there is never a time to fear success or being able to receive exactly what we need, when we need it most. Anything is possible.

Thank you for sharing, Rose. I have been reading an interpretation of the Tao te Ching by Wayne Dyer over the last couple weeks and today is day 16 (Verse 16), which talks about constancy and the permanence of change, life cycle, etc.

Become totally empty.
Let your heart be at peace.
Amidst the rush of worldly comings and goings,
observe how endings become beginnings.

Things flourish, each by each,
only to return to the Source...
to what is and what is to be.

To return to the root is to find peace.
To find peace is to fulfill one's destiny.
To fulfill one's destiny is to be constant.
To know the constant is called insight.
Not knowing this cycle
leads to eternal disaster.

Knowing the constant gives perspective.
This perspective is impartial.
Impartiality is the highest nobility;
the highest nobility is Divine.

Being Divine, you will be at one with the Tao.
Being at one with the Tao is eternal.
This way is everlasting,
not endangered by physical death.

hey! thx for adding me :) good reads. I love this verse of biblical faith. "Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." -Hebrews 11:1 I'm a horrible pretty writer ha ha, but I do appreciate a good read, you have some yummies here. ;)
