Law Of Attraction: A Habit Of Giving Before You Can Receive

It has been years ago since I was just a young teen. It was then when I first heard an inspiring remark from my late mother that still continue to linger in my mind today. Back then I did not have any inkling at all about the law of attraction and I don’t think my late mom, God rest her soul, would have any idea about it either.

From her personal observation, she had concluded that people who give generously tend to be growing wealthier. From my standpoint today, I realized she was already advocating one of the fundamentals of the law of attraction. She had struggled to raise 5 kids without much help from an alcoholic husband. However, her strong desire and determination to see each and every one of us succeed in life had given us a great head-start for our achievements today. Thanks to mom, all of us are living a comfortable life today.

My late mom was not a Christian but her observation reflected precisely the words in Luke 6:38, “Give and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return.” It was also the same in 2 Corinthians 9:6-8, “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”

Learning the art of giving generously is one of the important components of the law of attraction in order to attract the likes back to you. It is about cultivating the feel good vibrations from your habits of giving that spark your positive thoughts to generate positive results. Many people have claimed that the law of attraction do not seemed to work for them and of course, it can’t because regretfully, many do not have the habit of giving first. Just like if you want to attract love, then you just have to give out more love. After all, giving your love does not cost you anything in the first place.

Likewise, if you want money then the next right thing would be to give out money. But the tricky part is that not everyone has the money to give out. This however should not be a stumbling block for you to give in any way. You can always help others to earn more money, learn new opportunities or manage their personal finances efficiently. Do not be mistaken that giving out money has to be in monetary form all the time. Sharing your knowledge generously to others is the stepping stone for more ideas and opportunities to be attracted to you that will become your wealth eventually. If you maintain this sharing spirit constantly, then you’d better be ready to receive the same into your life.

Give because of the joy that reaches deep inside you. When you have adopted a habit of giving freely and generously, your positive energy becomes aligned in harmony with the Universe. You are offering up to the Universe that “I have more than enough to give!” The law of attraction does not pick and chose what it wants to be delivered to you. It just follows your energized thoughts irrespectively.

As you give, so shall you receive... As they say, what goes around, comes around...and in the Bible, Jesus said, "Do unto others what you would like others do unto you."

Agreed! Our life itself is a gift from God. Let's not squander it selfishly but share it and use it to serve the purpose that God has designed for us.

giving is contentment of heart :) nice post Wenny!

Hi Amelia, you're right! It does lay the contentment in our hearts because to give makes us feel good ... the feel good vibes come alive!
