Giving and Receiving
Libra season is about balance and there are many ways to bring balance in our lives.
There is balance in the whole Universe, and we are constantly bathed in the energies of Yin and Yang, divine masculine and divine feminine, life and death, give and take, play and solitude, directing and following and so on.
Balance in life is something that we all need, and it is not always easy to have.
One aspect of us that needs to be in more balance and necessary for our growth is ‘giving and receiving’.
Everything is energy and in flow. Giving and receiving are aspects of the flow of energy in the Universe, are part of our human existence and we need to learn how to best balance these energies and create a loving dance between them.
Giving makes us feel good about ourselves, empowered and strong; receiving makes us feel grateful and loved.
Do you find yourself always wanting to give and support everyone? Are you doing more for others and less for you? Are you feeling tired and with low energy most of the time? This could be because you care too much for others and give your energy and power away. You do not take time to replace, refill your energy and do things that feel aligned with your soul. You are not allowing yourself to receive.
And your soul needs balance and nurturing.
What about if you are in a continuous state of receivership? You receive and do not give. If you do not share, you become overwhelmed by keeping ‘everything’ for yourself. You become selfish and self-centred and your ego starts to play, saying that you worked hard for it, you deserve it and not going to let it go. You are in service to you, but not in service to others.
For example, if you gain knowledge and feel empowered, why not share the knowledge with others, so they can become empowered too?
Giving and receiving must be in balance to bring harmony in life.
Finding a heathy balance between what you give and receive is essential for your human evolution and the key is to discern on how much you give and how much you receive.
If you are a mother, wife, sister or a father, husband, brother with predominant divine feminine energy, you are usually a natural giver, doer, caretaker and are always giving. And most of the time you forget to take care of yourself, to refrain from the busy world, take time off and do what your soul loves to do.
Or if you are on the spiritual path, you genuinely want to share with others. Share your wisdom, love, joy and happiness. It is coming from your heart. Your soul is guiding you to do this. But you need to remember, you cannot give from an empty cup. You must fill your cup first. Giving a receiving is an act of continuous flow. God/Universe gives you always what you need.
Receive every day and give every day. The more you receive the more you can give. You need to be open to receive, to let the Universe shower you with gifts. Beautiful gifts of love and light to brighten up your life and your heart. And you can expand your heart and share your gifts with others.
“The wise man does not lay up his own treasures. The more he gives to others, the more he has for his own” – Lao Tzu.
How do you nurture your mind, body and soul? How do you replenish your energy, relax your mind and connect with your soul?
Take time to receive and do things which feel good for you. Have a ritual, a daily routine to connect with your soul and bring peace and love in your heart. Pause and recharge your energy. Spend time in nature, meditate and have a deeper connection with the divine. Be in the present moment and heal. Nurture your body, have positive thoughts, words and actions. Expand in love, compassion and kindness and share with others.
Receive and give, give and receive in balance. Keep this flow of energy going and know that whatever you put out into the world with the intention to support others, it will come back to you and bless you with more. So always come from a place of wisdom, love, service and compassion.
A little prayer to support us in giving and receiving:
May we receive what is most needed from the divine for healing and growth, with compassion and gratitude. May we be here for each other, share our gifts and serve in the best ways we can. May all hearts expand in love, peace and harmony
