This morning's writing in my next book, 'Active Surrender' on the 4th Chakra of Trust: Give & Receive....
This is the flow of life, to give and receive. To go way out, we discover that indeed there is no difference, that all energy is available to us at all times - bodiless in a pool of energetic goo. Our inability to really comprehend just how vast and limitless we truly are - without edges or me or you, just giant arrangements of the same stuff - means that we are fierce about our boundaries.
We defend our boundaries and our hearts. We don't trust easily that we are truly one and that giving and receiving is a natural state.
We can breathe in and out without thinking. We don't have to work to trust in ourselves to do it because we already trust ourselves to breathe. It's instinctual. Our hearts do it too, blood pumping in and out without thought.
There is no conversation that sounds like whether we are worthy of accepting air into our lungs or that the world around us is unworthy of receiving our out-breath.
We simply give and receive, in and out of our body, all day long.
It is a pure state of surrender to simply breathe.
So why don't we trust ourselves to give and receive in other ways, in natural balanced ways that support us? We create upper limits of how much happiness, love, joy, material things, ideas, creativity we are allowed to receive. We over give to others, depleting our lung capacity until we feel exhausted. We mistrust others and withhold giving to them, locking away our love and attention and gifts behind our makeup boundaries. We are territorial, stingy, greedy, desperate, isolated, misunderstood, hurt, bitter, exhausted.
We pass out if we do not breathe.
Why would we imagine that our spiritual bodies wouldn't also pass out if we don't allow energy to flow in and out of us as well?
Trusting ourselves to be open to the flow of the universe makes us feel balanced, supported and expansive in all things".....
Hope you enjoyed today's writing my friends. XOXO Stacy
