      We live in a society where people try to take more than they give. This is always a design for failure. Taking more than one gives back will always create a mindset of lack, and create a life that reflects those circumstances. We all naturally know that the more we give, the more we get. Since we all know this, it makes me wonder why more people don’t give more. The law of attraction is no different. The more you give, the more you get. The universe naturally lines things up to give you more in return than you give. It’s ironic how this works. The more you take, the more that is taken from you. The more you give, the more you get.

      So the key here is to learn to give in as many ways as you possibly can, and in the areas that you want more. Learning to position your life, your mind, and your spirit in a place of abundance and giving will create amazing results in terms of a return on investment. If you want more money, start giving your money to people who need it. Start spending your money with the mindset and belief that you will get more money in return. For every dollar you spend, keep a gentle smile on your face in confident knowing that you will get two dollars in return. Where it will come from may be unknown, but knowing that it will come is the key, and truly believing that it will come because you gave is also the trick. The same is true for love, time, energy, knowledge, and anything else that you can possibly want.

      The problem here is that many people give with the expectation that they will get. This is not at all the mindset you want to come from. You cannot give with a mindset of demanding you get something in return. Expecting the universe to give back because you gave is a mindset of lack. It is a mindset of neediness. The emotional driver behind it is all wrong for living and creating a life of abundance and wealth. This is not to say that you shouldn’t expect something in return, because you should. You are giving because you want something in return. Nothing is ever done from a completely altruistic stand point. What I am talking about here is a selfish point of view that you will only give because you will get something in return. This is the same as giving someone a gift for Christmas because you expect them to give you a gift in return.

      You must learn to give because it feels right and good to you. You know that it is the right thing to do because you understand that the universe rewards people for good, positive, true actions and feelings. You must give from a place of compassion and caring. A place deep inside you that gives because you want to make a difference and you understand what true value is. You give up money each month for your mortgage or rent because you have given the value of money in return for the value of shelter and warmth. Buying a soda or gas is no different. You want something of value in return for your investment, but with the proper mindset, that return can be huge, if you understand that connection.

      By understanding that when you buy gas, you not only get fuel for your vehicle that will allow you to travel and do what you want and need to do, but you also help lots of other people. You give the clerk at the gas station a pay check. You help support the people and their families that drive the delivery trucks. You help with the paychecks for all the people who refine the oil into fuel. You support the sailors and shipping companies that bring the oil over in boats. You support the people in the countries that the oil comes from and their families. By coming at your daily needs and the spending of any resource like this, and understanding how that little energy reaches out into the world, you begin to realize your over all connection to everything and that everything you do, especially from a stand point of giving and heart full of giving, has to come back to you. The energy of giving will attract the thing that you give back to you ten fold. So practice giving things from this mindset, and prepare to be amazed at the magic that begins to happen on a regular basis.
