Law Of Attraction: Reach Out With Random Acts Of Kindness

A random act of kindness is a selfless act carried out to either assist or cheer-up an individual or even at times animals. There will generally be no other reasons apart from making people smile or happy. Irrespective whether it is spontaneous or planned ahead, random acts of kindness are very easy to practice. What we need is an open heart and a helpful approach.

Random acts of kindness can be monetary like cash gifting or otherwise with no money involved. Open gestures or anonymously, it could be as simple as sending a silent blessing to a stranger or leaving a note of encouragement for someone or extending a helping hand to cross a busy street or blood donation or just offering a compliment, a smile, a listening ear and so on.

Practising a random act of kindness is an expression of abundance. It dissolves our thoughts and feelings of lack. Kindness comes from generosity and love. Extending kindness shows our awareness of the abundant generosity and love in our possession that we want to share with others, whether people we know or complete strangers. Committing an act of kindness to benefit others without expecting or accepting anything in return feels good. Likewise, it feels good too when someone does the same to us. It’s gratitude in motion. These ‘feel good’ feelings transform our negative energy, lifting our spirits high and positively. The Universe recognises the positive energy and delivers the same in return to us.

Opportunities to do a random act of kindness are available at any time, everyday and everywhere. Most of the time we just do not realize how many and how often they are happening right in front of us. We need to slow down a little, ponder for awhile and recount a single act of kindness we’ve done or done to us today. They may be small and unnoticeable until we really give it our attention.

In the scriptures of Luke 6:38, the Lord had said, “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

It does not matter how much we can do but just do whatever we can. When we practice random acts of kindness, people in turn become inspired by our actions. One of the amazing figures of acts of kindness is Oprah Winfrey, the richest and greatest African-American philanthropist who does not seem to stop giving till today. If this spirit of giving and helping spreads to every level of the human race, the world will definitely be a changed place.

Hi Wenny
This is a great post! Just doing something to be nice and help someone else is a great in so many ways. It helps people see the good that exists in the world, which can inspire them to do a random act of kindness. And let's face it, it scores us some pretty nice points with the universe, who pays in mysterious ways. If you ever get a chance to do something nice for someone else, do not waste the opportunity. You never know what you will gain from it.

Most importantly it makes us feel good inside that we made a difference!
