Accepting Gifts is Manifestation

Accepting gifts is manifestation in action, it is the concretizing of the law of attraction. If our energies are in sync with the energies of the universe, what we had wished for, perhaps desired intensely, at some point of time comes to us. Our mind is connected to the universe in ways that has not been deciphered yet. Our heart and the feeling of gratitude charts a course for manifesting our wishes.

Manifestation needs to open up channels – it’s like digging a tunnel through the mountain to reach the other end – us. Also, we have to be open to such miracles. Only when our heart is in an acceptance mode that the manifestation starts to happen.

One way is that of receiving the gifts with an open heart.

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”

Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

4 Secret of Manifestation and its relation to Gifts

(1) We are the co-creators of the our universe. Much of the onus of manifesting abundance is on us. No one else is going to imagine what we need, but they can be guided by the universe to be a medium in our manifestation. Therefore we should have an open minded attitude to people who want to give gifts to us.

(2) Manifestation does not work by logic or reason. The universe hears our call and starts to work. We may forget about those moments when we wished, We may have even moved on to new avenues with newer wishes and newer wants. However when manifestation starts to happen, it is foolhardy to reject those things that we once desired. Gifts are a channel, and we should always willingly keep it open. We should always be in the acceptance mode that is given to us out of love, respect, freewill, and gratitude – these are the things, even when they are material things, we should accept them with grace and gratitude.

(3) Our wishes, desires, and wants happen in the present, but manifestation happens in the future. So, when that future happens, to have a negative attitude to it, to not accept a gift, to reject a gift – is sending signals in that present that one does not want things. This only confuses the universe. This can have a very adverse impact on the things that have started to work out. So, negatives at the time of receiving creates blocks to the manifestation of the present wants and desires and signals to the universe that you don’t want.

(4) Law of attraction is in sync with the manifestation laws of the universe. If good things come, we should accept with gratitude to the universe. This has an intimate link with our sense of abundance and happiness. At times, we may think that just material things are objects of our manifestation. However, law of attraction and manifestation is much vast. We attract energies that can bring happiness and fulfilment, we attract kindness and compassion, we attract those invisible energies that remove obstacles from our path.

Manifesting is taking action. Whether we seek out good people, good friends, good work places, good environs, whether we are actively positive in our actions. that we are not resistant to things that come to us. That we remain in the flow. It is our action in the now that really determines the future.

When we are in the mode of acceptance, the universe is also in the mode of giving. If we are resistant and negative to things that come to us, then only send negative vibes to the universe. Our action speaks volumes about our intentions. And it is our intentions that activate the law of attraction and the consequent manifestation.

Each moment can be a moment of manifestation. And when someone gifts us something, we should accept it with open heart with gratitude. Obviously, a gift is something that does not has any strings attached and there is no quid pro quo or any expectations of the person who is giving the gift.

While a person has a full right to refuse to accept gift from anyone, spiritually those who don’t accept gift miss out on the very important aspect of manifestation. Louise Hay says that gifts are part of the overall concept of manifestation.

Louise Hay has expressed this in beautiful words

Be sure you are not rejecting prosperity now… If you get a gift, accept it graciously. If you can’t use the gift, pass it on to someone else. Keep the flow of things moving through you. Just smile and say “Thank You.” In this way you let the Universe know you are ready to receive your good.

Louise Hay, You Can Heal Yourself

Deepak Chopra, the spiritual guru, speaks of being committed to the cycle of giving and receiving as part of circulation of prosperity in life – of joy, wealth, and affluence which can have any form, intangible or material.

Spiritually, things that come to someone free, at no cost with no efforts, is part of manifestation. Gifts are a manifestation of desires, affirmations, and luck. Yet, when the same person refuses it, they are only creating the blockage and sending out signals to the universe that they are not ready to receive. Such negative outlook towards gifts shows an absence of openness in mindset and outlook, and spiritually a closed heart – these can have an adverse impact on other aspects of life as well.


Giving a gift is an act of kindness and good behavior, receiving the gift is an act of grace and good manners. Gifts strengthen the bonds and improves the quality of relations, but a poorly received gift or a refused gift can break relations. Giving gifts and receiving gifts are part of spiritual cycle of manifestation of prosperity and one should keep the flow.
