It felt like a new beginning in our friendship, one were we could have more honesty, emotion, and transparency, and one where we can come even closer together. We get to write a new chapter to our evolving friendship.
And the gift is that this all started with feeling absolutely overwhelmed with emotion. My miracle that day didn’t come in the form of feeling elated or when things were easy. My miracle came through the difficult feelings and the shedding and dismantling of layers of my defenses. That’s often the case, actually. Yes, the little gifts can feel good and can be moments that feel easy, but sometimes the biggest gifts come from the most painful emotions and tackling that scariest thing.
So, that’s my invitation to you this week. Can you be open to the gifts you receive this day, including the ones that don’t feel so good? That don’t look so easy? In fact, can you stay open to the gifts that actually feel nerve-racking and a bit terrifying to tackle? Because those are the gifts that are juicy. That’s when you get to create a new story and a new beginning for yourself. That’s when you get to rewrite your old stories and rewire your old patterning.
I encourage you to use Britta’s 12 minute Opening to Receive Meditation for this endeavor. It’s the monthly practice on her new Podcast, episode 2, and will be really helpful for this. CLICK HERE to listen.
Sending you lots of love in your own openings (even to the hard stuff),
