Asking for help!
One of the hardest lessons I have had to learn in my life is that of asking for help. I have always been the first one to give, either of my time or my money. I have done this regardless of my current situation because I have always believed that by giving we receive. But I have always had a hard time asking for help or accepting help from others.
Why is this? I believe it is all based on the Ego. The Ego believes it is the best and the only thing that matters, by accepting help the Ego is shown that it cannot do everything or figure everything out. I lived in this place for many years. I was very bright and I could always figure out a way around things to create the outcome that I wanted. As I grew spiritually I let go of the need for my Ego and started the process of listening more closely to my heart and soul.
The feeling of being connected to everything and feeling the natural flow of things; opens your mind and allows for best outcome in every situation. This process does not mean that everything will always be perfect, or go your way. It just means there is a time and place for everything and if we allow it things will work out the way they are supposed to.
I still have had problems accepting help from others, it is an ongoing process for me. At this point in my life I need as much help as I can get to help me get through the process of building my new business. I have tried to be more open and accepting of help from friends and colleagues allowing them the same satisfaction I receive by giving.
As I open my heart, I allow God/universe to send me the perfect people to help. In the past I would ignore these people and do it myself. The results were that I would usually get what I wanted but in the end it truly was not what was best or even what I thought it would be.
As we learn to live a more joyful life; allow your heart to be open to others help and together we can build a better world.
