Giving to others is one of the most powerful ways to increase abundance. It may seem to be a contradiction, but the more you give the more you will receive. The universe must always stay balanced.
It is the intention (or thought) behind your giving and receiving that is the most important thing. The intention should always be to create happiness for the giver and receiver, because happiness is life supporting and life sustaining and therefore generates increase.
The thought of giving, the thought of blessing, or a simple prayer has the power to affect others. Thought has the power to transform.
The best way to start the Universal Law of Giving and Receiving is to begin the process of circulation – make a decision that any time you come into contact with anyone, you will give them something. It does not have to be in the form of material things; it could be a flower, a compliment, or a prayer. The most powerful forms of giving are non-material. The gifts of caring, attention, affection, appreciation, and love are some of the most precious gifts you can give.
When you meet someone, you can silently send them a blessing, wishing him or her joy, happiness and laughter. This type of silent giving is very powerful.
Make a decision to give wherever you go, to whomever you see. As long as you are giving, you will be receiving. The more you give, the more confidence you will gain in the miraculous effects of this law. As you receive more, your ability to give more will also increase.
Applying the Universal Law of Giving and Receiving to Your Daily Life
1. Wherever I go, and whomever I encounter, I will bring them a gift. The gift may be a compliment, a flower, or a prayer. Today, I will give something to everyone I come into contact with, so I will begin the process of circulating joy, wealth and affluence in my life and in the lives of others.
2. Today, I will gratefully receive all the gifts that life has to offer me. I will receive the gifts of nature: sunlight, the sound of birds singing, or spring showers or the first snow of winter. I will also be open to receiving from others, whether it is in the form of a material gift, money, a compliment, or a prayer.
3. I will make a commitment to keep wealth circulating in my life by giving and receiving life’s most precious gifts: the gifts of caring, affection, appreciation, and love. Each time I meet someone, I will silently wish them happiness, joy and laughter.
