Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today is a reminder that you’re not on this journey through life alone.
Sometimes you may feel as if you are, you may feel as if you don’t fit in, or no-one understands you, but it’s a shared journey that we all take.
On the outside your experiences may look very different from another’s, but the underlying patterns are always the same.
I call this the SHEro’s Journey.
Every time you make a decision or experience change in your life, you will go on this tried and tested path.
Knowing that others have shared experiences can be comforting. Knowing there is a map to guide and support you is reassuring.
But how easy is it for you to receive and allow yourself to be supported?
Do you resist asking for help, or do you find yourself thinking that you have to do it alone?
Support comes in many different ways.
Some days it might look like something practical and tangible, other times it could be that someone believes in you and sends you good wishes.
Maybe it looks like someone sharing their own story, lessons and wisdom with you.
It could be the voice of someone encouraging you keep going or the one that tells you to try again.
The big and the small acts of support will send ripples of magic through your life, helping you to open up your potential and allowing your true self to show up and shine in the world
But you must be open to both receiving and allowing it.
In this very moment, just pause and take a breath, as you allow yourself to feel supported.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to get clear on what kind of support you need in your life right now.
And then ask for it.
No hinting, no expecting others to read your mind. But clearly and unapologetically ask for what you need, and then allow yourself to receive it.
Pause, and take a breath. Allow yourself to feel your inner confidence grow.
“I joyfully receive support in all areas of my life”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy feeling more supported!
Many people have grown up with the understanding that it’s more noble to give than to receive. And of course, there’s truth in the importance of giving to others.
And you must also be able to receive too.
If you find yourself squirming or feeling uncomfortable when someone offers you a compliment or gives you a gift, or if you constantly find yourself refusing the help of others, even if in fact it would be great to have some help, there may be something else going on.
And by going on, I mean a story, a pattern, a limiting belief, that you’re playing out to protect yourself.
I know the idea of not receiving support to protect yourself sounds counter intuitive, but often many people refuse support because they don’t want to let go of control, or feel that they will in some way have to give back to the other person at a later date, that they’ll owe them and be in their debt.
Sometimes people don’t trust the intentions of others, that believe that the support with come with strings attached.
And at other times, it’s because receiving creates connection between people, and if someone fears intimacy, by refusing support keeps people at a distance.
We humans are a complicated bunch…
But as humans we also live with rhythms, so it’s as important to receive as it is to give.
Next time someone pays you a compliment, gives you a gift, or offers you some support receive it gratefully and joyously, let the giver know that their offer is appreciated, as not only are you receiving, but in that moment you also become the giver, as you give the person giving to you, a moment of connection, gratitude and a moment of sacred presence.
