For it is in giving that we receive

St Francis of Assisi

The season of giving and receiving is nearly here but let’s reflect on how we respond to gifts throughout the year.

We may enjoy the whole process of choosing a gift whether it’s a tangible present or something that doesn’t cost money but involves our time such as arranging an outing, cooking a meal, or helping someone with their shopping. We enjoy the look of pleasure on the person we have treated as well as feeling we may have enriched their life.

But how often do you hear the recipient say ‘You shouldn’t have …’.or look embarrassed. They may feel there are strings attached, that they will be obligated in response to a gift. Perhaps they feel unworthy of attention or that receiving help shatters their illusion of independence because they are showing their need or possible weakness. This reluctantly accepted gift may make the giver feel rejected.

Giving and receiving are opposite energies linked in the natural flow of life and an expression of our interconnectedness. If we find it hard to accept a gift perhaps we should remember that someone considers us important enough to give that gift and accept it graciously.

Your interest in well-being through holistic therapy is important to me and I would like to offer you a New Year treat. Give a friend or someone in your family a Christmas gift voucher for a Touch Therapy treatment and this will entitle you to 50% of the value of that voucher off a treatment for yourself to kick-start a healthy New Year’s resolution.

“It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
