The Key to Abundance

The Key to Abundance

Sheri here –

What has graciously receiving gifts got to do with abundance, you may ask?

Why it has everything to do with it.

In the past, I’ve discussed both Receiving (see blog post here) and Giving (see blog post here) and how it is part of the cycle of abundance. With abundance comes gratitude, and gratitude brings abundance. Giving and receiving don’t easily exist without the other and neither do gratitude and abundance.

Abundance is Receiving

Here we are, once again, in the season known for giving. Even though things are different this time of year than they normally are, it is still typically when people are looking for gifts. But, let me ask you – how easily do you accept a gift? How gracious are you?

Somewhere, many of us learned that it is better to give than to receive. Yet, if we don’t become gracious about receiving – either compliments, gifts, money, promotions, or other blessings, we rob ourselves of a piece of the abundance cycle.

After all, abundance is receiving the gifts of the Universe!

Learning how to receive is just as important as learning how to give.  By not being able to gracious receive gifts from others you are robbing their joy in giving and could stop the flow of abundance from the Universe.

When you graciously accept gifts from others, you can recognize and graciously accept gifts from the Universe. The Universe gives you many opportunities to fulfill your requests, you need only recognize them. Recognizing those gifts and blessings takes practice.

Receiving graciously from another is practice for gracious receiving from the Universe.  So giving and receiving are closely related.  It is the balance of both that opens the door to true fulfilment and abundance.

With abundance comes gratitude, which in turn creates more abundance. Abundance and gratitude are intimately connected.

Graciously Receiving Help

Some of those gifts may require asking and receiving help (see more about that conversation in this blog post here) to be able to fully enjoy! Asking and receiving help is also part of how the Universe helps us fulfill our vision and our mission.

Who knew that graciously receiving a gift would lead us to abundance, gratitude and tools to further fulfill our vision!

May your life be filled with blessings.



Asking for Help: A Sign of Strength

Sheri here –

Asking and accepting help is the sign of strength, not weakness – it as allowing someone else to give you a gift.  Seeking assistance when you don’t know something will save you time, effort, money and maybe more.

While help is technically a four letter word, sometimes help (the word) really seems like a FOUR LETTER word – you know the one that shocks the system with its “dirty” meaning. Asking for help is NOT a “dirty” word either.

Giving and Receiving

Would you say no to a birthday or Christmas gift? Receiving is part of the natural order of things. It is half of the giving cycle.

Are you more comfortable giving than receiving? How would you feel if someone refused your gift and wouldn’t allow you to give? Would you be willing to offer again?

For many giving is a gift.  Just think, if people were unwilling to receive, what would that do for those, who wanted to give? Refusing a gift disrupts the cycle of giving and receiving.

Asking and Accepting

When we don’t ask for help or accept help – it is like saying no to a gift.

Sometimes you need help. Whether it is for a dire situation or a situation where you have a limited level of skill.

Accepting help or asking for it is not a sign of weakness.  Quite the reverse – asking and accepting help is a sign of courage and strength. 

Acknowledging where you are is one of the most courageous things you can do.  It is the first step in a new journey. 

In the environment of the pandemic, many people are reaching out to learn something new, to put something different into place or to just do something different because your environments changed.

No matter what you are doing, being open to accepting help is a good thing – it can expand your horizons. Look at help in a new way, as part of the giving cycle – as part of the natural order of the Universe.

Notice your attitude toward asking or accepting help – is it really serving you and those around you?

Allow someone else to contribute to your growth or wellbeing.  Who knows, you may be stronger in ways you can’t predict.

Go on ask, step outside your comfort zone and allow another to possibly step outside theirs.



P.S. You can practice if you wish by asking me for help with asking for help – book a call here.
