Are You Receiving or Resisting?

Are You Receiving or Resisting?

This is my gentle reminder to you.
Increase your capacity to receive.

Say, “Thank You”.

How we do one thing is how we do everything.

If you want more love and connection with your spouse, increasing your capacity to receive in ANY area of your life
will have an impact on your relationship.

Open your heart to what already exists.

If you want more of anything, you will need to build your receiving muscles.
Learn how to “catch” the goodness that is already being thrown your way.
Otherwise, if your arms are folded and your eyes cast down, you’ll miss it.

Opportunities to receive are everywhere.

Start with saying, “Thank you” to anything and everything that’s good and works for you.
Especially to compliments.
Just thank you period is sufficient.
Practice receiving the compliment without polluting it with your ifs and buts or any words that come out of your mouth.
Thank you. Period.

When you’ve increased your comfort at receiving compliments, up the ante with adding “It’s true.”
Thanks go to Regina Thomashauer, aka Mama Gena, for that simple yet powerful phrase.

“Thank you. It’s true.”
Bingo. Receiving capacity increased.

Appreciation is fertilizer for relationships of all kinds. Especially marriages.

Notice everything that your partner does for you.
Let them know how grateful you feel.
Spouses want to know how to make you happy.
Watch their love for you grow with your appreciation.
Apply liberally.

Trust that it’s all working for you.

Be grateful for the gifts of books that friends send to you in the mail.
Or emails from clients that sing you praises.
Precious time with friends hiking in the woods.
Savor what you’ve been given by taking the time to receive & relish in your good fortune.

You are either receiving – or resisting.

Notice the situations you feel left out, on your own or not enough.
That’s your resistance to the love that is there for you.
I know, sounds crazy.
Exactly the opposite of how it appears and feels.

Dig deep and you will find the gold.

Inhale into that vulnerable & protected hurt place in your fragile heart.
Let down your walls with gentle care and discernment.
This is where the growth is for you.

Are You Receiving or Resisting?

Today is the day.
Go out and practice.
Say, “Thank you.”

Increase your capacity to receive.

I am a relationship coach. I help people make their relationships better.

The first relationship I help my clients with is their relationship with themselves.
Treat yourself like royalty, shine the light of forgiveness & compassion on yourself, and you will find others far more loveable. Including your spouse.

“Surrender to Receive” is a specific module I teach within my 6-month coaching program, “Marriage Reconnect” for individuals and couples.

You deserve a loving, connected and juicy marriage.

I’d like to help you get just that.
Send me an email with your relationship questions. I promise to answer your question in one of my upcoming email newsletters. I’d love to hear from you.

Schedule your free 1 hour Discovery Call right here.
If you would like help with the challenges in your relationship, schedule a free Discovery Call with me today and I promise to share at least 1 tool to help you re-connect with yourself and your spouse.

This is what my clients have to say about working with me.

If this email resonates with you, please forward this on to a friend who might benefit from it too.

Here are 5 easy suggestions:
1. Get enough sleep. Establish a bedtime routine and follow it.
2. Get outside in nature every day. Rain or shine.
3. Appreciate what is wonderful in the world. Write 3-5 things you are grateful for each day.
4. Reach out to a sister. Call her once a week – or every day. Ask how she is and what she is feeling. Give her the space to release her feelings without any judgment or fixing.
5. Treat yourself to pleasure. Dance. Take a nap. Sing out loud. Read a novel. Soak in the tub. Do anything you want – just for the pleasure of it.

With all my love.
From my heart to yours.
Gail
