If gratitude is the energising force of the universe, then being able to feel deserving is what makes this energising force useful! You can’t be grateful for something unless you accept it, and you can’t accept something unless you truly believe you deserve it. Otherwise you will always be subconsciously pushing away all the good things that are coming to you, which a total disaster if you want to create fantastic results in your life!
So often I hear people say “oh you shouldn’t have bothered” when someone does something nice for them. So I’d like you to promise yourself once and for all that from now on when someone brings you flowers, cooks you dinner, gives you an unexpected gift or buys you lunch that, instead of arguing and telling them they shouldn’t, you accept it with joy and gratitude and in the clear belief that if someone wants to do something for you, they believe you deserve it, and you need to believe them!
Being open to accepting wonderful things in your life is the first step in firing up the energising force of the universe and that is no small thing!
