by Amanda Owen
In this world of busyness, constant distraction and demands for giving of our time and money, Amanda Owen turns us around to receive. In her book, The Power of Receiving, she emphasizes the importance of receiving as an important aspect in the circulation of life energy. Her easy to read book is filled with stories and simple exercises that teach us how to be receivers of our good, how to take care of ourselves and let life and others give to us, whether it be a compliment or a lavish gift. Her whole book supports us into getting into right relationship with whatever goal we have in life, and taking the steps that allow us to actually attain that goal through our own receptivity. So, wherever you are in your ability to receive, to manifest your good, Amanda Owen shows us there is even greater opening, a greater good awaiting us.
