Daily Angel Card ~ Hathor: Receptivity
Hathor: “Allow yourself to receive. This will increase your intuition, energy, and ability to give to others.”
Message from Hathor: “You have a maternal side to you that naturally cares for those in need, yet this must be balanced with receptivity or the flow is blocked. Receiving is the essence of feminine energy, and it means allowing yourself to receive with grace and gratitude. If you feel guilty when asking others for help, or if you feel bad about receiving gifts, then you block your feminine energy. Your receptivity is must as natural as your nurturing, giving energy. Receptivity allows you to better hear the voices of the angels. When you receive, you have more resources to give to others. Begin by noticing the hundreds of gifts you receive each day, whether it is seeing beauty in nature, witnessing a touching human moment, or being hugged by a loved one. Simply say “Thank you” for each gift, and know that they are filling up your store house, keeping the Divine flow going strong.”
Various meanings of this card: Be still and listen. Release guilt about receiving. Ask for help. Increase psychic awareness. Know that you are in a learning cycle. Healing is occurring. Be more in your feminine energy. Child conception, pregnancy or birth, including adoption or favourable custody arrangements are issues in your life.
About Hathor (pronounced HATH-or): This beloved Egyptian goddess is represented by the head of a cow to symbolize the sacred animal’s life giving milk and mothering. Hathor is a benevolent sky and sun goddess who helps with all aspects of child conception, birthing and raising. Call upon Hathor to guide you in nurturing yourself in your loved ones.”*
Opening yourself up to receive the gifts that life has to offer you is crucial to expanding your consciousness and manifesting abundance into your life. It can be a simple as stopping to acknowledge the love in your loved ones eyes, or accepting a compliment without brushing it off. You can stand with your face to the sun for a few moments, receiving the warmth and light that our bodies need to produce Vitamin D and feelings of well being, no deep tan required, just a few moments. When you go to the beach, take your shoes off, feel your toes in the sand, let the water lap at your feet, even if it’s freezing cold, it will pull you into the present and you can appreciate the connection to the sea.
My all time favourite way of increasing my receptivity is during my Bikram Hot Yoga class, during Camel Pose. I concentrate on opening my heart chakra, and receiving Divine guidance and protection. When you immerse yourself in the pose and really stretch yourself back, opening your spine and ribcage, you can’t help but feel open to receiving when you are so open.
When meditating, also make sure to have open palms, as it is a universal sign of receptivity.
