HOW TO ASK FOR HELP
Determine one area of your life where you could really use some support or help. Your assignment this week: ask someone in your life for help with this. Think of someone who may be a little more adept in this area and ask for their advice, insight or support.
When we ask for help, it gives us permission to be humble. We’re all human and none of us have all the answers. We don’t know everything. Yet, we tend to hold ourselves to extremely high standards of perfection.
Our culture is set up around an artificial, technological rhythm that is impossible to keep up with. It sets us up to feel like failures because we physically and mentally cannot keep up with technology. We can’t keep up with the fast (and exponentially getting faster) pace of machines and computers.
The Type-A personality is driving our culture and collective unconscious and propelling us forward at lightning speed. We bring in a little more humility and femininity when we pause and ask for help. We open ourselves up to receive.
When we open ourselves up to receive – we open ourselves up to receive the download of support not only from our family, friends and colleagues – but the larger, intrinsic support of the Universe, or Spirit.
We realize that we are always supported. There are always people who have gone through what we are going through right now – and can give us a little insight and guidance.
Whether it’s finance, a new work project, technological questions or personal issues in relationship, family or health – ask someone who is a little bit further down the road for help. You will receive a treasure trove of knowledge and insider information.
Asking for help and support also turns our attention to abundance. We feel the abundance of how much support is always all around us!
If you come home and you feel like you really need your partner to make dinner, or you need your kids to learn how to do their own laundry, or you just need a time-out and a half an hour to yourself – ASK!
This is a particular shadow for women! We tend to take a lot on. We tend to feel like we need to do it all ourselves. Notice your boundaries and allow other people to support you. Allow yourself to be uplifted.
Then, let us know how this works out for you this week. Post your comments or questions for next week on Facebook.
Have a wonderful, wonderful week!
