The following piece is an excerpt from my book, “Word, From Your Mother,” a daily guidance journal written for my children, Liv and Pierce-Gabriel.
Are you a giving person? If not, you should be. Meema and Papa always gave me this mindset: Give to others, always be generous, and expect nothing in return. Here is another excellent practice to start; silently bless others as much as you can throughout the day. Do this to friends or those you consider foes. Imagine their reaction in your giving this blessing to them.
If you see that someone is down, bring them up if someone is in need, help. Being a giving person at every chance you have, raises the vibration on Earth and creates miracles in your own life and others. Don’t forget–it is also important to be giving to oneself. I know that may sound silly, but it is the greatest form of self-care to give to oneself. Some people call this feeding their soul or nourishing their heart space. I call it well-being.
In giving, these two aspects of life will fill your life with the most beautiful abundance. I like this quote from Earl Nightingale, “No man can be rich himself unless he enriches others.” Do you want to feel peaceful? Then, spread peace. Do you want to be joyful? Then, spread joyfulness. Are you poor? Act as though you are rich. Be as you desire.
What you get back in life is what you have put out there. It is law, just as the ocean ebbs and flows. Therefore, be of service, be in touch with the collective consciousness of this Earth. Create beautiful experiences all around you. I will leave you with this quote that I read today from another author: “I only do what gives me joy, follow my flow as much as possible, I do work hard, and I trust life’s abundance fully.” –Lucien Lecarme
