The only way to be open to receiving is to be in trust, to be in openness, to be in connection, which means letting be what was and letting be what is, and allowing the new growth of something new to flow through you.  The energy of cultivation means patience, kindness, love, and watering the soil of your offering throughout the day, so that they hesitant new buds feel safe to come out, feel welcomed, feel encouraged, just as you would encourage a baby to take its first steps.
