What Is Receptivity?

Mend your heart in order to receive life's experiences: unite your inner masculine & feminine.

☥ Welcome to my Mystery School – The Temples of Isis ☥


Let's first define the word receptivity. Receptivity is the ability to receive the experiences, both the blessings and the challenges, of life. That is not what dictionaries say which, in itself, says a lot about the state of the world we live in with regard to receptivity: in our world, receptivity is broken, for the most part.

Giving is glorified, cool, and sexy. Receiving is not. It's been a little bit more spoken about in recent years, in spiritual circles especially, because of the return of the divine feminine, and everyone knows that receiving is one of the main feminine qualities.

Receptiveness needs to be redefined, become cool and sexy, and stop being humiliating.


People who are suffering, and also denying their suffering, therefore not asking for any treatment, therapy, healing, or help, react to expressions of affection defensively because their inner receptive system is broken because their inner feminine side is broken.

The inability to receive is without a shadow of a doubt the worst evil anyone can suffer from.

It is the wound of the...wounded warrior. There is no hope for remission, healing, mending, transmutation, or salvation because help is perceived as a danger, a threat, a manipulation from the enemy and is not even an option. Anything new, even if extremely benevolent, beneficial, empowering and enlightening, is experienced as suspicious: 'kill or be killed'. Unless life forces change via a dramatic event, and even so, the likelihood to re-examine their be-lie-f system is very small.

These people are at war with their environment...and with themselves.


Receptivity is related to the sacral chakra. In a previous article where we went over the 7 chakra system, we learned that this chakra's mantra is 'I want', and that it is connected to the testicles and ovaries. It is the center of sexuality, creativity, and one-on-one relationships.

When your sacral chakra is balanced, you have a good social life and an easy-going, gracious personality, and indulging is not a problem for you. When it is imbalanced, that is when your ability to receive the gifts of life is compromised and you may be inclined to mismanage your life force energy and encounter difficulties towards one or both genders. This is the center where emotions such as shame and guilt are locked, therefore causing controlling behaviors.


Receptivity is one of the main qualities of the divine feminine and if there is one quality that everyone will have to develop in order to be able to live in 5D, or the heart and ascension paradigm, it is most definitely this one.

Receptivity is the feminine quality that allows anyone to leave the controlling ways of the victim: taking is control; receiving is surrender. Who likes to surrender? It takes a master to surrender.

What makes it difficult to surrender and receive is a broken heart.


It is the heart of anyone who has not achieved the hieros gamos within. In other words, the masculine and the feminine within that person are still separated. That is what causes the real brokenness within and that brokenness leads to broken behaviors that do not resonate at the frequency of universal love: each given individual who operates at that level carries wounding from the past that needs to be dealt with order to reach a higher living platform.

This state of being with a broken heart is what I call 'broken receptivity'.


When receptivity is broken, as stated above, we are dealing with a wounded warrior type of psychological profile. This is the individual who does not trust anyone and who never asks for help, therefore they never, ever truly progress, grow, and evolve. They are stuck in the mind, repeating the same old lies to themself and feeling threatened by anyone, no matter how much they love them, who tries to introduce new truths, new perspectives, new knowledge, new wisdom, new thoughts, new ideas to them. They will invariably withdraw back into their cave because they are losing control but in order to receive, control has to be given up.

Losing control and surrendering is the very essence of receptiveness.

No free, real, spontaneous, and authentic giving is allowed around a wounded warrior type of individual. Their victimized self prevents them from appreciating true generosity and they are unable to be in an attitude of gratitude. They literally do not see what they are given. They need force: the energy of taking (control) is absolutely necessary to them. It is vital because it is what makes them feel safe. If they fail and cannot feel it and feed off of it, they get frustrated and flee in fear ('fight or flight' response of the reptilian brain).

They need a weak personality that will allow the dynamic they choose and impose. A strong, independent, powerful personality will be really challenging and problematic to them.

As a result, intimacy for them is highly improbable and the people who love them will inevitably, sooner or later, be pushed away. They will claim they'd rather be alone, sometimes even claiming that when alone, they can finally be in communion with themself.

In fact, they are going round in circles, alienated in a faulty be-lie-f system that validates and consolidates their shadow, shortcomings, failures, escapism, and need to dominate others.

They do not have the willpower to pull themself out of this state, the fear of losing what they know, have, and think they love prevents them to do so. To cover it up, they will repeat the same lies a billion times over to themself and others.

To convince themself that they are not losing out, they will reject, disrespect, and denigrate what other people genuinely give to them, bring to the table or into their lives. They will accuse them of wanting to change them, force ideas, concepts, and feelings into them because they feel overpowered, overwhelmed, vulnerable and insecure. Any attempt on their part to open up will end up in the same way, no matter how much they seem to love someone. Their heart will close up like a shell.


There is hardly any hope for someone whose receptive abilities are broken. There is an inherent block to opening up to their female side since the one condition to do so is lacking to start with: the capacity to withhold judgment long enough in order to surrender and stand in the unknown for a while. Their mental approach to life makes it impossible and their veto to trust anyone to work in one-on-one sessions with a professional or talk to a close friend or mentor leads to a dead end, as only what they believe is valid and works for them...even if it does not. They are self-sabotaging themself.

This is related to childhood (lack of a feeling of safety, deprivation of loving care and touch by the mother) and karma. They may be haunted by guilt and shame from other incarnations and attacked by entities that feed on low-vibrational emotions.

What is sadly ironic is that in order to raise one's vibration and meet the Goddess and the divine feminine, it is necessary to trust enough to surrender, which is precisely what these individuals cannot do.

There is a reason why it is called mastery...


In truth, what it takes is enormous willpower. Victimhood is a very seductive and sticky energy, a lot like sugar, like jam on your fingers. Therefore, the conscious choice to leave victimhood to reach mastery, a state of peacefulness, and self-accountability is paramount.

It is possible to draw a parallel with politics: we often hear a problem is not solved because of the lack of political will. It is the exact same phenomenon here. What it takes is 'political will': if you want to, you can. 'I want' is the sacral chakra. 'I can' is the solar plexus chakra.

You are never more disempowered than when you never choose to reempower yourself. The key is to stop kidding oneself and realize that whenever control is lost and joy is found, it is a sure sign the soul is in command and that is what you want and what mastery is about: true willpower to go through whatever shadow work and alchemical work is needed and for that, self-love is also needed.


God and Goddess have given us all the tools to succeed. The courage it takes is rooted in the heart: cor in latin means 'heart' so it takes heart to be courageous. Your heart is in there in your chest. Use it. It's your responsibility. We have no excuse. That's why your joy is your compass.

You then stop being a victim and you become a creator. You are free to receive what life and people have to give you; you do not have to take any longer and that demands a (hell of a) lot of faith.


A healthy person is someone who knows how to receive. A healthy society celebrates receiving as much as giving, and does not stigmatize anyone on the receiving end.

Let's reinstate the divine feminine, let's restore receptivity. Without it, there is no giving.

Learning what receptivity is requires to be aware of what it is not since receptivity is a passive state of doing nothing.

We are in an age of desinformation, seduction, lies, and immaturity where intelligence, purity, and truth are the first victims. The content of this blog aims at restoring the bases of an emotionally and spiritually sound and enlightened society. It may feel a bit extreme and maybe offensive to some people. Truth, in essence, is immutable and wages war against falsehood. Therefore, it is quite naturally belligerent and triggers the vain, superficial, and immature ego only used to getting its ways and immediate gratification. It is its role and goal: get out of the state of hypnosis and mental control that a vast majority of people in this world are in, and raise awareness in this age of darkness and complacency. I wish to make it clear that I do not write these articles to be nice, or not nice for that matter, but to serve the Great Cause which is universal Love and the return of the Goddess, our divine Mother. Facing the truth takes great courage (the root of which is cor in Latin, meaning ‘heart’, therefore having courage takes heart). The wisdom offered on this blog reflects the mission I’m on since without truth, we lose our freedom altogether. The stifling lack of truth these days explains for the equally stifling presence of modern slavery which, let’s make no mistake about it, is the current condition of the human race.
