Spiritual Lessons on Giving (and Receiving)

The Law

For this entire week, we will be focusing on 7 very powerful laws that Deepak Chopra wrote about in his best-selling book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success. Why was this book such a best-seller? Because it was the truth! Chopra has studied very deep, powerful and ancient spiritual truths! And he also has the skill and the talent to chop them down into tiny, manageable bite-sized pieces that almost everyone can understand, (on the surface) fairly easily. The centering though that Chopra provides for this lesson is:

Today and Every day I give that which I wish to receive.

Whatever you give to others you will receive from others. And given that this is the case, you need to be very conscious of, and very deliberate with regard to that which you give, as it dictates exactly what you will get!

That’s pretty easy to understand. If you want a donut, give someone a donut! What you give returns back to you. But… people don’t believe this is true.

3D Distortion of the Law

And even if it is, giving to receive can be tricky. What if you want something like a 5-million-dollar beach house? But, you don’t have a 5-million-dollar beach house? So how does that work? You can’t give what you don’t have…and what you lack, often frustrates you.

In the 3D paradigm, the law of giving and receiving often becomes a trap. The rampant, and spiritless materialism of our world makes it a trap, and because we don’t really understand what giving or receiving is or how it works.

Giving is not about stuff. It’s really not. But in the 3D matrix we have been programmed to believe it is, and because giving to get (stuff) is a huge distortion of the law, people lose faith in the spirit of the law, when they think it is not working.

And because people don’t believe the law of giving is working, instead of giving with an abundant and faithful heart, most people hoard with frightened and fearful heart. And this leads to nothing but misery. take a look at our select billionaires on the planet. Do you think they are happy, loving, giving people? Do you think that they are enjoying their lives. I can almost guarantee that they are not. The reason is that they give very little and whatever is given, is given with a frightened and fearful (if not completely dead) heart. In return, they receive very little. The law of Giving is not about stuff. At its core, the law of giving is about love. But most of us on the 3D grid don’t fully understand love, because we have been too programmed to pay attention to its opposite, fear and lack. This is one of the main problems we are facing in the 3D paradigm presently. A huge, massive fear of lack, and it disrupts the powerful spiritual law of giving and receiving.

However, it is more often the case that we do not. This is because we have been programmed in a 3D paradigm that does not teach us how to effectively express at this level of frequency on a consistent basis. If we happen to be a light, joyful, loving individual, consistently, in this 3D paradigm, it’s because we have somehow stumbled into these very powerful spiritual truths, or were somehow immune to be programmed out of them. Some individuals, I believe, are holding way too much light, to be programmed out of any of it. Everyone loves these kinds of people. They brighten the lives of nearly everyone they touch. These are very high-level light workers. But as for the rest of us, trapped on the 3D grid, consistently giving off a high vibration is very difficult. More often we are unconscious of our vibrational state. This often leave the door open to tons of negative 3D programming to enter our minds and leave us in a lacking fearful state.

You’re fat. You’re ugly. You’re stupid. You’re dumb. You’re not tall enough. You’re not smart enough. You’re not pretty enough. You’re not good enough. You’re not rich enough. You’re poor. You’re broke. You’re sick. You don’t measure up.

This is the kind of programming that runs nonstop in 3D. This is the kind of programming (unless very lucky) that most humans have to battle in their minds all day every day! But it shouldn’t be. These programs are lies and traps and based in fear.

The Spiritual Truth Behind the Law

It doesn’t matter though, how much the 3D paradigm disrupts your personal understanding or experience of the law. The spiritual law is the law! That is one thing that you need to really understand about these spiritual laws. They are universal. To read up on how Chopra describes the law of Giving and Receiving, you can click here. But basically, the law is this: whatever you give to others you will receive from others. And given that this is the case, you need to be very conscious of, and very deliberate with regard to that which you give, as it dictates exactly what you will get!

The universe is vibrational, so what you give you will receive. In terms of giving it is a mistake to think in terms of physical things. We give any number of intangible energies and frequencies that express in this multiverse. The most powerful thing that we can give to one another, are energies and frequencies that are based in the highest frequencies of love.

We can give happiness and joy and love; in the way we interact with others. These are some of the lighter and high love frequencies we can vibrate at; and when we do this we need to put our full and big heart into the effort. We all wish to receive these frequencies and so we should all be expressing these frequencies to everyone we encounter everywhere, and every single day.

Miracles

In order to return our minds to our rightful loving and giving nature, I’d like to direct your attention to my favorite chapter from A Course in Miracles, chapter 1: The Meaning of Miracles;

Miracles are natural. When they do not occur, something has gone wrong. Miracles are everyone’s right. Miracles are healing because they supply a lack; they are performed by those who temporarily have more for those who temporarily have less.

I know that is a lot to wrap you mind around, but this one is my absolute favorite:

Miracles are a kind of exchange. Like all expressions of love. which are always miraculous in the true sense, the exchange reverses the physical laws. They bring more to both the giver and the receiver.

Giving (energetically) from a Place of Love

Have you ever sought to give something to someone, out of love, from the heart, just because you were concerned for their wellbeing? Have you ever given from this very pure state, with wanting absolutely nothing in return?

I have. And guess what happened? In many of those instances, I got back so much more than I felt I gave! It is so true! Miracles bring more to both the giver and the receiver when they are given from the right heart filled space.

A miracle is never lost. It may touch people you have not even met, and produce undreamed of changes in situations of which you are not even aware.

This is very profound. Just consider it. Intuitively I know it’s true!

As we get to the meditation let us clearly understand that, giving from a place of pure unconditional love (not hoping to get anything in return) is a miracle. Today we will be using our imagination to practice granting someone a miracle. This will get us firmly into the vibration of the law of Giving (and receiving) and at the very least it will bring a little a joy into your heart (which will be great for your mind and your body!) Remember it’s all connected!

Meditation for Today — Om Vardanam Namah- Universal Nourishment

Centering Thought — Today and Every day I give that which I wish to receive.

Mantra — Om Vardanam Namah — I am the nourisher of the universe and the universe nourishes me.

As we move on to the mediation, remember what you need to do to get the most out of it. Listen to the mantra, pay attention to the content of the mantra:

Mantra — Om Vardanam Namah — I am the nourisher of the universe and the universe nourishes me.

Whoa! What a powerful thought that is. As you consider that thought, think of an infinite source of love and understanding surrounding you, as well as everyone you know.

I know it’s hard, as the 3D matrix, deeply discourages these thoughts. But just know that it is true. There is a source, of internal, infinite love, that is connected to all of us, and that all of us can connect to. Whenever we so choose. It is all about choice.
