“Your hand opens and closes, opens and closes. If it were always a fist or always stretched open, you would be paralysed. Your deepest presence is in every small contracting and expanding, the two as beautifully balanced and coordinated as birds’ wings.” ~Rumi
Receiving and giving is a flow. It’s a valve of receiving and giving you have to keep open. Letting go and giving and giving to yourself by receiving. Asking for help when you need it and receiving.
I have not been feeling well the last couple of days and I’ve had to receive help and ask for help. It’s not easy for me but luckily I have experience with it and have always been the better for asking and for receiving.
Last night my assistant ended up teaching a jewelry making class for me. She came to my house to get the key and I gave her instructions on where everything was and about the class. She’s taught classes before, but not for me. And she attended one of my classes years ago. I totally trust her and she went and taught the class.
As a result, the students in the class were happy, over half signed up for another class with me later in the month, and she also had the idea to teach a new class that I have not offered before that people are already interested in. This created multiple win-win-win’s.
All of this wouldn’t have happened unless I asked for help and *received*. So, I got to continue recovering from whatever is going on with my body and binge watch “North and South”, which I highly recommend. (It’s only four episodes.)
The main way I plan financially is a spreadsheet named “In and Out Flow”… actually two spreadsheets, one for business too.
This name is a reminder that it’s a valve that I have to keep open to keep flow moving through. I can’t hoard money and expect to create more, I spend money to make money, to receive to give and give to receive.
This relationship with money is not something most of us have been taught about. Money has been and is one of my greatest teachers. I love sharing about it & business and empowering those who have heartfelt visions to create more in the world for themselves and others.
