Have you ever had the experience of talking with someone…for instance, an unruly child or an angry friend…who is not open to hearing what you are saying? It can be very frustrating! Not only that, but nothing is really accomplished. That same thing happens when we are not open to Spirit. Well, except Spirit doesn’t get frustrated; we do! But still nothing is really accomplished.
Opening up can be difficult due to past experiences. We can all likely recall times when we opened up and we were hurt. Because of the fear of being hurt, we began to close down, even if it was just a little.
We have to remember who we are…we are the way God shows up on this spiritual plane called Earth. We are the magnificent beloveds of the Beloved.
How do we learn to be willing to open up to our own greatness and greater-yet-to-be? We do it by remembering and trusting that we are here on purpose. We do it by trusting that we are here to share our gifts with the world. We do it by having faith in our own abilities. We do all that by practicing, practicing, practicing!
As we practice more and more, we automatically begin to open up. Allowing our light to shine opens us to receive the gifts of Spirit! It’s a win-win!
