The secret of receiving

The Secret of Receiving – Jeshua through Judith Coates

Beloved one, I would speak with you now about something that is dear
to your heart: the secret of receiving. You have been asking to
manifest; asking, with the palms open, saying, “Okay, I am asking; I
am ready; I want it now.”

There has been much said recently about The Secret, the secret of
manifesting. And many of your brothers and sisters have been
interested in how to manifest. What is the secret?

Everyone loves a secret. It is something special. It is something
shared just among friends. It is something that perhaps not everybody
knows, and it makes it special if you know the secret. So The Secret
has caught on with the brothers and sisters most wonderfully, and many
are using that as a step in the awakening to understand and come to
the place of realization of Who they are, realizing that they are the
ones who are manifesting whatever they are experiencing, and coming to
a place where there is not judgment about whatever they are manifesting.

In truth, the secret of receiving is very simple. But it does have a
catch to it, and we will come to that later.

The secret of receiving is to know that truly already you have it.
There is nothing outside of you. It is all within you and all within
your power to bring it forth. The secret of receiving-as I have said,
and it is recorded in your holy Scriptures-is to pray unto the
Father/Mother, pray believing that you have received. Know that you
have received, and then it will appear right in front of you, right in
the midst of where you are.

Pray believing; in other words, whatever you are asking for, look
around you and realize you already have it. Now, perhaps the world
will speak to you that, yes, you have the potential of it, but you
have not brought it forth yet. But in truth, you are bringing it forth
even as you think to manifest. Even as you think to receive, you are
bringing it forth with that vision, and the more you think about it
and the more clarity you have about it, the easier it is to recognize
that truly you already have it and you already have the means to be in
awareness that you have it.

You already have it

This is where friends come in, good friends who are in resonance with
you; not friends who are of the questioning kind, but friends who are
of like mind. The friends you talk with and you share with can often
point out to you that what you are asking for, you do already have;
perhaps not in the way you have been looking at it from one angle or
maybe from another angle, but you already have it.

So when you pray, pray with the vision of what you want to see in the
outer. Go first to the inner, with the inner vision, and acknowledge
that, “That which I am asking for, I truly already have. I am wealthy
beyond any measure of what the world will say.”

Oftentimes you are tricked into thinking that you need a certain
number of golden coins or certain numbers in your bank account in
order to be able to do what you want to do. But I say unto you, if,
for example, you wanted to go to a far country and it was going to
cost you a lot of the golden coins and you were thinking, “I can’t do
that because I don’t have the golden coins,” you find a way to
manifest a discount or you find a friend who needs a companion, or you
find a friend who will lend you the golden coins so that you can get
where you want to go. You always find a creative way to manifest that
which is your dream, your vision.

Great sense of gratitude

So as you pray, believing, and you allow the eyes, even the physical
eyes to see that you are in the midst of that which you have desired
and you know that that which you have been asking for, you already
have, there comes a great sense of gratitude. “I am truly blessed”-and
you are- “with what I do have.”

I would set for you a piece of homework: sit down with a piece of
paper and a pen, and take stock of what you do have. You will be
surprised, because you will fill pages of the notebook with what you
do have, even down to the smallest little thing. You will start out
with the big things first, and then you will add more to it, and more,
and maybe the next day you will come back and you will add a couple
more things to the list, and before you know it, you are going to be
living in great gratitude because, “Look at how wealthy I am. Look at
what I have to be thankful for. Look at what I have that is freely
given to me, things that I do not even have to have responsibility
for. I don’t have to expend any energy to have these things. They are
already mine to enjoy.” Everything you desire, you are already
creating for yourself.

Sometimes you create what appear to be bumps in the road in the
journey of a lifetime, but oftentimes the bumps in the road are the
most wonderful gifts that you can give to yourself. Later on when you
look back, you say, “If that bump or that wall, or whatever, wasn’t
there, I wouldn’t have made the turn which has brought me here.”

The secret to receiving is to know, first of all, that you have
already received. The secret to receiving is to stand in gratitude
because you have already received and you are already in the midst of

Be willing to give

And the secret to receiving is to be willing to give. That is what I
said is the catch, but it is not a big catch. It is an easy catch. In
order to receive, you have to be willing to give; in other words, to
let everything flow through you; to know that “I am unlimited; I have
all the resources that I ever can think of or desire or would ask for,
and I share them with you.”

And as you share them with another friend, they are multiplied as they
flow through you, and you are then the receiver who has ten-fold of
what you are giving out to another one, and you become aware, even
more aware of what you already are and have, because you are able to
give it. You cannot give it if you do not have it. True? Even the
world teaches you that.

Then the world shifts and changes because of your willingness to be
the giver. As you allow the giving to flow through you, you realize,
“I can give and give and give and give, and more will be given unto
me as I give.” Then the gratitude grows, and you get out the notebook
and you start writing some more things in the notebook, because you
realize, “As I give, it is repaid in the flow ten times, multiplied
tenfold as I give it out to others;” tenfold because you realize that
you are living in an unlimited spirit of the I Am-ness, the Creative
One that you are.

What can I give?

The secret to receiving is to give, and to give freely, over and over
and over and over; to actually get quite busy in making an inventory
of, “What can I give?” As you wake up in the morning every day, before
you put the feet upon the floor, think about what you want to give
away in that day, be it tangible and/or intangible.

Think about the wealth that you have to give, and then get busy giving
it away, because the more you give, the more that will come right back
to you. You have heard the saying, “Nature abhors a vacuum.” Well,
spirit is like that, too. There never is a vacuum. Whenever you give
something away, more comes in its place. So if you have been desiring
something and you want to receive something, start giving it. If you
have been desiring health, start giving health, visualizing health for
another friend who perhaps is thinking that they need help or healing.
Put yourself in a place of envisioning them healthy and whole, the
Christ of them manifesting wholly through the body. And any part of
you which has been calling out for healing is going to receive healing
ten-fold, because as you give, so it is given unto you ten-fold.

Now, the importance here is awareness. In other words, as you will
envision for another one the wholeness that perhaps you are wanting
for yourself, you then want to be in a place of receiving consciously,
acknowledging consciously, that, “I am receiving the healing that I am
giving to another person.” Since there is no separation, as you give
to another, you are giving to yourself, and it has to come, as you see
it, back to you.

The multi-millionaires

You can think of ones in your acquaintanceship, and friendship even,
who have what are called the million dollars, even the
multi-millionaires. You have friends and acquaintances who have many
of the golden coins. Now, that one is, in truth, not separate from
yourself. In a worldly sense they seem to be separate and they seem to
have the power to spend the golden coins in the way that they want to,
which they do, and you may feel that you do not have the golden coins,
but you do. Begin to take stock, accounting if you want to call it
that, of what you have and what others, as they are seen to be
separate from you, have, and step into their sandals.

How would it feel to be Mr. Gates? How would it feel to be able to
have so many of the golden coins that you could set up a foundation
which would help in various areas of whatever your dream is. Now, does
it take a million dollars for you to be able to start to do that? In
truth, no. You can start with what you call your five dollars, your
ten dollars, your twenty-five. Get others to join in with you. It
will grow.

What you have to have is the awareness that you are the abundance that
has so much to give-and you do-that you can translate it all into a
vision, the same as your Mr. Gates took a vision years ago. It was a
vision that he loved. It was something that he was very much caught up
into and did for the love of it, and the golden coins came.

He did not start out to seek the golden coins; that was not his first
mission. He did what he did because he loved doing what he was doing,
and the golden coins have come to him. And now he is able to gift the
golden coins to many others to help with various projects that they
want to do. You can do the same.

So the secret to receiving is to know, first of all, “I already have
it.” Secondly, to stand in gratitude and to fill up the notebook with
listing all of the things you have to be grateful for, and to keep
adding to the notebook. And thirdly-I like to teach in three’s-to be
willing to give; to see what you can give in each day, even in each

You are very rich. Go now and celebrate the richness, and share it
with others. As you give, so shall you receive.

So be it.

I’d like to point out that Native Americans knew this secret too, one gave away at every chance they had. Not with attitude that said if I give this, I’ll get this; but with an understanding that in giving to others, you nourish all that is. When you nourish all that is, creation nourishes you. ~Kat

  1. You are right on the button. I took a long to get the ‘believe I already have it’ thing happening. Because I came from lack I had trouble convincing myself that I had lots of anything at all.

    Once I truly believed in abundance (I do now) things started to flow just right!
