When giving to others starts feeling bad to you, it is time
to stop giving and open yourself up to receiving. Can
you do that? Most over-givers cannot..
THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT GIVING AND RECEIVING
When you are giving, you are in control and when you are receiving, you are not. When you give, you experience satisfaction, fulfillment and warm feelings inside of you.. However, when you open yourself up to receive, you first feel emptiness.
The emptiness folks feel when they open themselves up to receive scares them so instead of staying open to receive, they close themselves back up. When people do that, they shut the door to to receiving all the good things the universe wants to give them in exchange for the good things they have given others.
CONTRARY TO POPULAR BELIEF EMPTINESS IS NOT A BLACK HOLE...
Emptiness is not a bad thing.... it is a very good thing. It is a good thing because that emptiness in you is a 'white hole' (not black) filled with the LIGHT of the universe. This LIGHT acting as a cosmic magnet has the ability to attract into your physical life all the good things you have ever wanted BUT you must stay open to receiving the good things you want.. You must embrace the emptiness for what it is, the LIGHT of the 'organizing intelligence of the universe' that draws all good things to you.
You, who you really are, (a spiritual being, being human for a while) does not fear the 'white light' that lives within you, only your ego does. The ego fears the white light because if you embrace the LIGHT in you that you currently call emptiness, the ego will dissolve. Once the ego dissolves and you feel at 'one with yourself,' what you will experience are feelings of peace, love and prosperity to overflowing. And shortly thereafter that peace, love and prosperity you are experiencing in your inner world will start manifesting itself in your outer world. It is how the law of attraction works.
