98: Taking vs. Receiving — Part 2 — Deepen Your Capacity to Receive… Cleanse Your Ideas of Taking, Receiving, and Giving

With this episode, let’s cleanse our personal permission to receive and explore how receiving can relate and be blocked by feelings of betrayal within our ancestry and the collective, saying NO, expectations and attachments, our body’s visceral reactions to receiving and belief sets.

A self-exploration on:

  • What is receiving and what does it require us to feel and do?
  • Receiving is all connected to our body’s visceral reactions
  • Our belief sets (and where they come from) that block us from deepening receiving what we desire
  • What do you feel allowed, worthy of, and able to receive? Love, sensuality, abundance, money, compliments, touch…

Plus a sharing about a recent experience with a ghost that I now would rather call a spirit or ancestor and my experiences with Molly Shanahan/Mad Shak Dance Company recently around movements born from trauma.

This conversation is Part 2 of 3 on the investigation and self-inquiry around taking, receiving, and giving. Last week, I explored the developmental need and assertive tool of taking — the benefits of being able to take and how taking comes before giving in the spectrum of life.

It’s important to let die what needs to die.

Our relationship with Death gives us Life — If we do not honor death, can we really know what it is to live? Are we able to assert our lives fully and be present to life?

When we resist death, we resist life.

I am thrilled to announce that the Ally With Death Experiential is now a guided audio recording full of moody and provocative music and my voice guiding you through a death of old ways of being, habits, and beliefs, and a rebirth into what would feel more like you, life-giving, and present!

This is a beautiful recording featuring music from Larry Saint Germain to shake up the decay and stagnancy inside. If you are feeling stuck, stagnant, ready for what’s next, curious, depressed or anxious about life, uncertain, intrigued about how death can support life, want to get clarity for yourself, or just interested in following nature’s guidance to go inward and let die what needs to die.
