Here's another lesson for me... and as I explore it more deeply, I write myself instructions, and share it with y'all =)


As always, the key is balance. Most of us are great at either giving or receiving, but not at both.


If you give more than receive, you feel drained, resentful, and experience lack.


If you receive more than give, you won't enjoy what you have and may experience boredom.


Balance comes from giving as you are guided to, without fear, and receiving with joy and gratitude.


This applies to all kinds of things, not just presents but also presence - in things such as service, time, and love.


How much do you give to others each day? Do you hoard what you have? Do you give it all away? Ideally you'd give away that which you do not need or which would benefit someone else more than yourself, keeping that which you most treasure for you.... and loving it like crazy.


How much do you receive each day? When you do receive, do you stop and appreciate that which you have been given? Perhaps really stop for a moment and let your heart sing with joy for that which you have been given. When we don't appreciate what we already have, we block the flow for more to come to us.


Do a daily check... Have I given? Have I received? Was it an equal exchange? Use it as an indicator as to how you can grow. Once you get a clear picture of your patterns, you can just check in once a week.


Give thanks daily for that which you have. Give that which you aren't fully appreciating to someone who will, and watch the cycle come back to you. Do it without the intention of receiving, but with the intention of helping another.


It's joyful both ways. Get yourself in balance and kick it up a notch. =)


If we all distributed the wealth of that which we have, whether it be money, love, time, service, or whatever, the world would be fully abundant. It is our hoarding and limited thinking, in recurring patterns, which keeps lack and poverty of these things so prevalent. That's because it's still needed to teach us. Otherwise we wouldn't be stuck in these situations. Let's break through those conditions into the truth that is. The more of us that get it, the more we show the way to others... just by being.


Love!
