I’m grateful I learned to receive without guilt. I learned a long time ago how important this is to people who are genuinely giving from the heart. When people are authentically giving from a loving place, they are not giving to others to make them feel bad or less than. They are giving because they genuinely want to do something that feels good. It feels good to give. I know when I give, I feel good about not feeling helpless in a situation. Even if what I’m giving is a smile and a small conversation to a cashier who may have been ignored by the last five customers. When I give gifts, I give them because I want to give them. If I’m in a position to help someone, and it feels aligned inside like I talked about in yesterday’s post, giving is a much a gift to the giver as it is to the receiver. When we feel guilty about receiving, the giver may not get to experience the full joy of authentic gratitude, because the of the energy of guilt. If we want the giver to feel love, abundance, and peace, we have to receive in the energy of love, abundance, and peace. If our energy is aligned, the exchanges amplifies the energy!!! How awesome is that?! Now, both parties are more aligned to manifest wonderful things in the Universe.
Here’s the other thing, when we align our energy love, abundance, and peace, we are manifesting that energy to come back to us. When the Universe sends us a gift with a human as the messenger, why would we taint the flow of our energy with fear, lack, and separation, which is where guilt comes from. That is going against the very energy we want to be bringing back to us.
Today, I commit to receiving with love, abundance, and peace. This is where authentic gratitude comes from. It’s a gift to the giver when we share this beautiful energy with them. This holiday season, I’m making sure I’m aligning my energy of love, abundance, and peace as I receive gifts from the people who love me and strangers who are spreading their own love, abundance, and peace. I will keep the chain of kindness going so that it amplifies and creates more. I hope you will commit to doing this with me this holiday season. The world needs a boost! Let’s rise together!
With Love, Abundance, and Peace,

As I told you yesterday, I did a Facebook Live yesterday with the amazing, Sherry Richert-Belul. We had a beautiful conversation about love, compassion, humanity, and the gifts we can offer to others with it.
