Thoughts on Giving and Receiving Throughout the Holidays

December 14, 2014

Freedom at the Core, Welcome

Thoughts on living in an integral universe that is in a constant state of giving and receiving.

A time to  remember that what we give and receive touches everyone and everything in some way.

A wonderful question to ask yourself about giving and receiving as you enjoy the holidays:

  • What is the nature of experiencing giving and receiving in the most beneficial, loving, nurturing and empowering ways possible?

You might be thinking,”How can I bring more awareness and purpose into what I am giving and receiving this holiday?

This short exercise may help you to answer that question:


  • Close your eyes.
  • Take a deep breath in.
  • Be aware of your existence in space.
  • What you are giving and receiving by just being here?
  • Notice the air that you are breathing and giving to your lungs, which gives oxygenated blood to your heart…and is given and received throughout all of your body.
  • Notice oxygen you receive from the trees, and the carbon dioxide you give back to the world when you breathe out.
  • Notice the energy that you are giving just by being alive sharing the essence of your being, and receiving the essence of the beings that surround you.
  • Notice the thoughts you give and receiving.

What else are you giving and receiving?

Open your eyes, and ask yourself, “What am I learning ?”

Think about it?

Science is showing us that there is no place that we are disconnected or separate from anything or anyone.

We are literally all connected!

There is no such thing as being separate.

There are molecules of air and particles of energy that connect us even though they are not visible with our eyes.

If you are like me, sometimes the truth of that is hard to imagine.

And then I think about how all the cells in my body are connected:

  • Each of your cells has it’s own unique purpose, which allows you body to function in all the ways it does.
  • And each of your cells has it’s own boundaries, it’s own cell walls, to keep the integrity of itself  intact.
  • Each of these cells is totally interconnected and nowhere is it separate from the whole of your body.
  • And all of us are cells of the bigger Whole that we are interconnected and inseparable from.

Look at these two hands with that in mind.

Giving to the whole universe can be as simple as reaching out and taking someone’s hand.

Awesome, isn’t it?

Imagine all the things you could be giving!

Here are some ideas that just came to my mind:

  • Support
  • Time and energy
  • Participation
  • Reference points
  • Education
  • Encouragement
  • Ideas
  • Gratitude
  • Appreciation
  • Birth
  • Silence
  • Sounds
  • Music
  • Contribution
  • Enjoyment
  • Thoughts
  • Inspiration
  • Stories
  • Forgiveness
  • Love
  • Experiences
  • Dancing
  • Opportunities
  • Feedback
  • Laughter

Be outrageous and write down everything and anything else that you can think of.

Think of all the strengths you have…

You may be surprised at all the things you are good at can give and receive from others!

Get clear on what to give by asking yourself these questions :

  • What do my friends and neighbor think my strengths are? (go ahead and ask them!)
  • What do people look to me for?
  • What do they get from just knowing me?
  • What do people like about being in relationship with me?
  • What do I love to do?
  • What ideas do I have?
  • What have I mastered? (It can be as simple as mastering how to tie a bow!)
  • What things that I’ve learned that I could share along the way?
  • What skills and talents I donate that will make a difference?
  • What inspires me?
  • What hobbies can I draw from?
  • What would I like to tell the world about.
