If you are feeling a lack of abundance in your life, think of someone you can give something to.
Giving to others who are appreciative and can use your gifts can bring you some of the most wonderful feelings in the world.
Giving affirms your abundance and helps you feel prosperous.
Giving makes you strong.
Think of something you could give to someone you know that would help him or her right now. Make a point of doing it, and you will find the universe will give to you as well.
Giving always puts me in a place of feeling abundant.
Recently we just went to the Unstoppable Gala with Cynthia Kersey.
I was feeling so abundant just being able to be in the same room with so many wonderful luminaries who were at this event.
It felt great to be able to know that just being at the event and purchasing our tickets was helping children in Africa who don’t get to have proper health care, water, or schooling.
Giving is such a great feeling and it is a universal principle.
When you give, you also receive.
And that also includes giving to yourself.
Learning to give to yourself is important in maintaining the flow of abundance. If you cannot give to yourself, there will be a block in the flow, and eventually you will feel it.
For instance, healers may burn themselves out if they are always giving to others but are unable to give to themselves the time they need to feel nurtured and recharge their energy.
You may start experiencing lack, and then have to put extraordinary amounts of time and energy into yourself. Or, you may feel depleted on an energetic level from your work and lose your enthusiasm for what you are doing.
Start taking time each day to give to you.
That could mean giving yourself permission to rest during the day.
It could mean giving yourself time for a massage or something that pampers you.
It could mean giving yourself permission to say “no” because you don’t want to go out and want to stay home and read a book.
Give something to yourself today and allow yourself to receive your own generosity. You will then start to feel comfortable with receiving, and that is a key to abundance.
