The Power of Receiving

Receptivity. A willingness to take in, to allow, to admit. To have something bestowed upon you, oftentimes, whether we "want" it or not. Think of the Wizard of Oz bestowing courage, heart, a clear-mind and the wisdom that we have the power, we have always had the power, to go home. There are risks and there are rewards. Receiving can be a deep, spiritual experience and using some books, exercises and tools as a catalyst, we will explore this rich and often untapped idea about the power of receiving.

This power has deep significance and hidden gifts in our 24/7 lives. As women and daughters, mothers and wives, friends and lovers of life and experience - to be opened to the path and the journey of transformation is to be opened to the power of receiving. This will be an open circle this month where each of us will bring our wisdom, our struggles, our insights and our whole selves to the experience of being of a receiver. We often explore the strength and the power of the giver. Let's sit in the seat of the receiver for a time and discover the gold in this experience...and then bring that into the world.

    Thank you everyone for all the comments. getting in to make a comment or reply has not ben easy as I seemed to never be able to remember my password....especially if I am using my phone...Anyhow I too want to send my feedback of a delightful and insightful evening and look forward to more. My passion for women and discovering who we are continues to fascinate me. Valerie, it was fun to lead you to Hwy 17 and send you on your way to Felton, almost thought I lost you at the 85/17 interchange!!! That is why my arm was waving outside the window! Blessings to all. cc

    What a fabulous evening! I am moved that so many first-time Wise Women jumped in with both feet and big hearts to experience the power of receiving in the Circle. I am so glad to have spent time with old friends and new and I look forward to gathering again next month in the Circle. Check the discussion page from time to time. I will post upcoming events, classes and resources I think will be of interest to the group. Have a wonderful weekend everyone...you made my week VERY special!

      Last night's topic has been resonating with me today... the realization that being receptive doesn't necessarily mean about person to person... it also means being receptive to LIFE and what is has to offer you... we are all worthy of receiving the gifts that spirit and the universe have to share with us... we just have to believe that we are worthy of it! :)

      Yes Tyler! That is exactly how I feel about receiving clarity, I was able to receive clarity because of this group and now my direction is clear. This time it was about allowing life to give to me, not really an actual person. Thanks for your words, such a wonderful punctuation! :):):)

    So glad to report that I finally found a women's group that I like and intend to be part from now on. The positive connection I felt last night is priceless. Hope everybody came away feeling the same way I did. Look forward to many more meetings with you all.

    It takes courage to step out....and step in....and change.

      Hi Kelly...I decided to let the waiting list in yesterday because there are often last minute cancellations. It is why I ask members to be very mindful when signing up for the Circle because there is so much interest.

    Not feeling well today.

    • Mary W.

      Kelly, I know how excited you were to be here. I am sorry you are not feeling well this morning. I have included everyone in the group and I have enough 'goodies' so if you are feeling better this evening, join us! Best to you...Mary

    I think the drive will be worth it. Let me know if something opens up. The universe will tell us!

      ;) - It will be great to meet you Kathleen...carpe diem indeed! I know how you feel. My coaching partner and Fresh Intuition Circle member Keisha Gallegos has a fabulous meetup in San Ramon and I drive up there once a month. It sometimes takes me and hour and a half with traffic and it is worth it everytime! I do hope it doesn't take you that long tomorrow. ;)

    Hi Mary–a conflict came up. I'm taking a class to get my motorcycle license at the Harley shop before learners permit expires & it starts this Thursday and goes through Monday–dang. Love and light to all the gals! Hugs

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
