Joyful Receiver Keeping Flow Of Abundance Open

Donna DeVane Books

A lot of us grew up being told it was better to give than to receive.  That’s just not totally true.  Here’s why.  When you give and give and give without knowing how to joyfully receive you run out of something to give.  Have you ever felt resentful about how much you give to so many people and how little you seem to get?  I bet you have.  See, learning to receive with great joy keeps the abundance of all that good stuff flowing into and out and into and out and into your experience. Giving is a powerful way to have more of the great experiences show up in your life IF you are good at receiving as well.

Now I’m not talking about the “gimme gimme free free” mindset where people can never get enough free stuff or are always running from one place to another looking for something free.  That’s all about lack, poverty and not valuing yourself or others.  What I’m talking about is knowing YOUR worth and valuing both what is given and received.  When you accept gifts of all kinds, whether they be actual stuff, compliments, money or kindness you are agreeing with the flow of abundance and inviting more of that into your life and the life of all those you interact with.

Giving for most of us is easy, receiving maybe not so much.  Think of being a good receiver like this; your arms and heart are always open and outstretched, embracing life and all it’s gifts with dance and song.  Close your eyes for one minute and see you doing that, having that experience.  Receiving is about having that experience right now, where you are, even if you don’t physically have it in your hand.

Recently on one of my radio shows I used examples of how I won a few drawings for items I wanted to experience. I didn’t need them, or try to pull them to me.  I felt them mine, I experienced having them before my name was chosen.  That’s the how of receiving.  Give, yes.. give from you abundance.. Receive.. yes.. from the place of knowing that it’s already yours. Play around with this imagination game and let me know how it works for you.  I love comments.

Proof that you can live Success

Proof You Can Do It

We all want to live better.  That’s a given, humanity seeks comfort, love, shelter, food and fun.  Well, here is the BIG Breaking News!  If anyone can live this, everyone can.  That includes you. What are you dreaming of?  What passion burns within?  Don’t give up.  Keep on keeping on with your dreams.  I didn’t just wake up one day with books in print.  That actually began years ago when I was a child.  I always loved reading and wanted to write.  I wrote stories, poetry and inspiration pieces.  I was in my mid 20’s before I ever had anything published.  I got enough No, Thank you letters to wallpaper my study before I was published.  I didn’t stop writing though.  I have kept a journal since about 11 years of age.  I wrote a few stories for my children when they were little and still have those.  Perhaps I’ll have them published one day. 

I’ve spent my life reading and writing, learning and sharing.  It’s what I love.  So let me ask, what do you love?  Do you get up each day excited at the opportunities to interact with your passion?  I was asked a while back how I write so many books.  I told them I first get an idea, then I sit down at the keyboard, place my fingers there and type until the book is finished.  That’s the magic.  Doing it.  Just write.  When following your passion it’s the act of living the experience that is the first reward.  Of course I want others to purchase and read the books.  But the first joy is the writing.  It’s like I say to potential host for Awakened Radio Network, do you have a message that burns within you that even if someone offered to pay you to stop talking about it, you wouldn’t be able to hush.. that’s passion.

Living your dreams is a day in day out adventure.  No matter what else is going on you just keep living that passion.  Like you, I wash dishes, laundry, vacuum the floors, run to the grocery store, fuel up the car and cut the lawn. I do all the stuff you do and then I write.  I write these short blogs to keep in touch with you and give you the opportunity to interact with me.  I do YouTube videos and radio shows to share and interact with you.  This is my passion.  It fulfills me, thrills me, excites me.  I do it for love and pleasure. 

What is your passion?  Are you living it?  I’d love to hear what you are passionate about.  Leave me a comment. 

Time for Thrival Enough Survival Mindset

Thrival Time

 

It’s time to Thrive.  We’ve survived long enough.  We’ve proven that we can survive but aren’t you ready to do a bit of thriving now?  I know I am.  Just surviving is hard work and it’s not a lot of fun either.  We’ve done it the same way for so long because that’s how we were taught and we just didn’t have the tools to do differently.
Now the tools for Thrival are coming to the forefront.  You can read them, see them, listen to them everywhere.  People are awakening to the urgency that there HAS to be a better way and there is. 
When I wrote "How to Thrive in a Survival Mindset World" I was in a place of realizing that all the hard work I had been doing just wasn’t working.  I was getting by, but barely.  After I hit my 50th birthday I started giving some real thought to whether or not I wanted to still be working in my 70’s and realized that working my whole life wasn’t sounding like so much fun.  
I began to earnestly ask questions and listen for the answers.  Those answers are in the book.  I live by them and know that they will work for you because they work for me.  I’m not selling you hype, you’ve had enough of that.  These are real principles that work when you live them.  It’s not magic fairy dust, (sorry, I’m out of that), but you will create your own magic with these ideas if you practice them daily. 
The only difference between those "Masters" who walk on water and everyone else is practice, practice, practice.

Make a Commitment to Yourself

                                                    Allow_Best

How many dreams do you have that you’ve given up on over time?  Most of us just don’t follow through so we don’t see the dreams as reality.  We get busy doing the day in and day out stuff of life and just let those dreams wither on the vine.  On my radio broadcasts I’ve discussed many times how to keep showing up for yourself.  When you show up for you others begin to show up to support you.  When I started the Awakened Radio Network a few years back NO ONE knew it even existed.  I would go on air and there was no one listening.  I kept showing up and kept talking.  Now there are people listening to the radio station 24/7.  There are also other hosts who support the message of the station and listeners who help promote and who show up to take part in the live broadcasts.

There were many times when I could have just quit and done something else.  It didn’t look in the beginning like it was working, no one was listening.  I held in there though and kept posting on the social networks and I kept showing up for my dream.  You are always supported by Source in whatever you are desiring to do and experience, you’ve just got to know that and keep being in that experience.  With the radio station I kept showing up and being a radio host on a radio station even though no one else was there and before long others showed up to support me in my dream and help make it real.

I’m also an indie publisher and with the first few books I wrote and self published no one knew anything about them.  I had always wanted to be a published writer so I wrote.  I’ve written since I learned how and eventually I found a way to show up for myself and get published.  Thirty years ago I wrote and submitted to publishers and could have wallpapered my office with the rejection slips, but I didn’t stop writing and submitting.  Eventually I got a check for one of my short stories and I was delighted.  I continued to write and now have a dozen books on Amazon and people purchase them and tell their friends about them. 

I kept showing up for myself and moving in my dreams.  Each day I show up and live the experience of my dreams and day by day the experience expands to include even more details of what I want to experience.  It works that way.  You keep showing up even on those days and moments when it feels hard, when to your outer eyes it just doesn’t seem to be working and like a seed planted in the soil eventually it rises up and you see the growth and expansion.

Take a few moments and go over how you can show up for yourself and your dreams.  What can you do, be, experience right now that is your dream?  Do that.  Keep a journal, make notes of how you show up and how others show up to support you.

If you’d like to inspirational support join me on the Awakened Radio Network.

Success is About More than the Money

 

What is success?  Is it money, houses, cars, travel?  Or is it more than this?  If you had all the stuff you could handle what would you have?  Would all this stuff bring you what you really want?  Would it bring peace, joy, love?  Probably not.  There would most likely be an empty spot inside you even with all the money and stuff.  There is a Bible verse that explains it well.  Seek ye first the kingdom of righteousness and all these things shall be added unto  you”.  What does that mean?  I put it simply this way, “The joy ain’t in the stuff, the stuff is in the joy” .   If you gather to yourself warehouses of stuff and don’t have peace, joy, love and the knowing of “oneness” you will still be seeking for what you want.  See the real truth is that in all our seeking  for wealth we are truly looking for a connection to life, to each other, to the Great OM. 

As you understand that the kingdom of righteousness is the right use of energy; thoughts, beliefs and actions, you are on the track to success.  The kingdom of heaven is within you, success, love, peace and joy are there too.  As a matter of fact everything that you want you already have; within you.  Most of us spend out entire lives looking outside self to find something that will never be found because we are looking in the wrong place.  We have it backwards.  What we seek is within self.  It’s the Who You Are.  As you remember this, connect with it and work with this knowing life begins to line up with this new right use of energy or righteousness.  You begin creating from within knowing that the without is merely a reflection or the evidence of the within. 

Get it “right” in your mind’s eye, in your spirit and it’s an easy thing to bring forth in the outer physical a perfect reflection of what you really want to experience.  Be honest.  What you really want you know money can not buy for you.  You know that on a deep level.  You feel the nudging of Spirit reminding you to look within.  It’s a bit frightening at first to give up the habit of trying to do all the work of creating your dreams outside yourself, after all, you’ve always done it that way and everyone you know does it that way.

Today is the perfect day to start walking the path of righteousness; right use of energy.  Go within.  Discover your power, your connection to the Great IS.  Create with that energy.  As you pull it into form within you, it is only a matter of time until the molecules line up as a reflection of  your inner reality so that you can experience what you’ve created.  That’s how it works.  Put the horse in front of the cart and the cart will be pulled.  Get yourself lined up with the Principles of Creation and get busy enjoying the creating of your dreams.
