Many enlightening human beings have trouble accepting compliments. What we want you to understand is that it is imperative for all of you moving forward to embrace all aspects of the flow – the give and the take, the supporting and being supported – and to accept the balance that comes from both giving and receiving.
One tip we would like to give you that may make it easier for you to receive a compliment is to see it as acknowledging the energy you hold rather than the personality traits that you have. So for example, if someone said, “You are so good and kind” in response to something you did, you might be tempted to brush it off immediately, but if you reframed it in your mind as, “You hold the energy of goodness and kindness” you might not be resistant to it at all!
You can use the same technique to appreciate those who have trouble with receiving compliments. People have a tendency to accept that energy simply is. Things like, “You have such a soothing presence”, or “I love your energy” may be much easier for them to accept.
Why is that? Because those on a service contract generally won’t take credit for doing because they don’t give for glory or acknowledgement but they are very interested in the evolution of their energy and beingness. So if you compliment what they do, they may automatically dismiss it because you are not focusing on what really matters to them. Meeting them with recognition for their energetics is something they will be less resistant to because to them the energy of their beingness is far more important and valuable to them than recognition for what they do could ever be. ~Archangel Gabriel through Shelley Young
