The Power of Giving and Receiving with an Open Heart

Until we can receive with an open heart, we never really give with an open heart ~ Brene Brown.

The heart is more than just a physical organ that pumps blood throughout the body. According to quantum physics, the heart holds an energetic frequency that is 5000 times stronger than the mind. This means the heart can influence our thoughts, emotions, and actions. When we approach giving and receiving with an open heart, we tap into this powerful energy source and allow ourselves to be guided by love and compassion.

Furthermore, the heart is the portal to healing the whole person – mind, body, and soul. Our experiences can leave wounds on our hearts, causing us to feel pain, fear, and other negative emotions.

However, it's not the experience that causes the wound but our emotional response to the wound.

When we give and receive with an open heart, we allow ourselves to experience healing and wholeness as we tap into the power of love to transform our lives.

Opening our hearts to give and receive may seem difficult.  It requires us to become vulnerable. And vulnerability is a scary thing for most of us. Still, a crucial aspect to leading a fulfilling life is the opening of our heart.

What does giving with an open heart look like? We do so without expectation or attachment to a particular outcome. Whether offering a listening ear or sharing our time and resources, giving from a place of genuine love and compassion can bring joy and purpose to our lives.


How do we give and receive with an open heart?

  • We must cultivate a mindset of gratitude and abundance. When we approach life with a scarcity mentality, we are more likely to feel fearful, anxious, and closed off. However, when we embrace abundance, we are more likely to feel generous, trusting, and open to receiving. Practice gratitude by reflecting on all the blessings in your life, big and small, and expressing appreciation for them.
  • Practicing empathy is another key to giving and receiving with an open heart. When we can put ourselves in the shoes of others, we can more easily understand their needs and desires. This allows us to give from a place of love and compassion rather than duty or obligation. Similarly, when we receive with an open heart, we allow ourselves to be vulnerable and open to the love and care of others.
  • An open heart requires us to cultivate self-awareness and self-love. When we love ourselves deeply, we can more easily extend that love to others. And when we know our needs and desires, we can more easily ask for and receive the support we need from others.


When we give and receive from a place of love and abundance, we tap into the powerful energy of the heart whose frequency is 5000 times stronger than that of the mind. We can then experience healing and wholeness for ourselves and others. Take the time to cultivate gratitude, empathy, and self-awareness, and watch as your heart opens up to the power of giving and receiving with an open heart.

By embracing the give-and-take of life, we can foster deeper connections, experience more joy, and ultimately live a more meaningful existence.
