The Magic Potency Of Giving

December 8, 2009

At this time each year, we tend to become a bit more aware of the power in charity. The holiday season coupled with the challenging weather reminds us to both be grateful for what we have, and to share with those who don’t have. In this article, I’d like to offer some insights into the spiritual and energetic realms of charity, as well as share some collected quotes on the power of giving.

“He who wishes to secure the good of others, has already secured his own.” ~Confucius

Through Giving, We Receive

One of the main reasons for ‘abundance lack’ in our age is the diseased way in which prosperity energy is viewed. Most people tend to view their abundance like a bank account- the more you spend- the less you have. This may be applicable to hard dollar figures, but not to the bigger energy of prosperity. The truth is, that energy flow is more like a pool fed by a stream. The more we take out of it- the more comes in. As we gather and share energy from our abundance pool with others, the limitless stream is only given more space to refill that pool. By giving, we are actually jumping in to a ceaseless stream of abundance energy, giving and receiving in perfect balance. This, of course, can only be accomplished when the giving is with pure intent and not with manipulative motivation! For most, it is a leap of faith to jump into that pool and disperse so much of its contents- but after we take that plunge we are quickly made aware of the stream which refills.

This process is neither limited to or focused on actual money. Rather it is about the energy of life and cosmic compassion. Our giving can take the form of actual money to lovingly prepared food… a genuine smile to a warm blanket gifted to someone in need. Allowing this energy to manifest in spontaneous and unrestricted ways attunes us to the truly limitless way of the Cosmic, and to many hidden powers within ourselves as well.

“Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.” ~St. Francis of Assisi

A Simple Act Of Intentional Magic

Many of us who are in the habit of being charitable often wish we could do more. The following simple intentional magic can help free up the energy we might be hording to share with all those who might benefit from it.

In order to do this working:

  • Define and act upon your chosen gift- money to someone on the street, food to a shelter, etc.
  • Before you give the offering, simply place your blessing of abundance, health, joy and progress upon it
  • Then, as you give, imagine that every single person in the world who could benefit from this gift will receive it. Allow your one act of giving to be a symbolic act of giving to all

As simple as this sounds- it is highly powerful. By meditating on giving your gift to every single being who may be in need of it- you are releasing huge waves of very powerful blessing energy into the world which will quite literally seek out those who are in resonance with your gift and bless them!

“All things are perceived in the light of charity, and hence under the aspect of beauty; for beauty is simply reality seen with the eyes of love.” ~E. Underhill

The Heart Is A Vault Of Gold

Within each of us is the ability to act as a clear channel for cosmic blessing. We can each become a beacon of light which shines upon every single being we encounter to remind them of the storehouse of limitless blessings available to them. This all seems very intangible and spiritually heightened- but in reality all it takes is turning that energy into action. Giving through ‘being present’  is perhaps the most valuable way to bless others, and it allows us to engage all of our senses alongside soul to accomplish true charity. Using our actions, words and thoughts in serving food, building houses, helping the elderly and getting involved with community action programs unlocks the vault of our heart and turns that intangible compassion energy into something the whole world can feel.

Connecting, even just one a year, to a charitable project which allows you to work for the good of all is one of the quickest spiritual paybacks for you as well! Actively engaging the mind, body, emotions and personal energy in service of the greater family purges toxic energy patterns, destroys false belief about lack and limitation, brings cosmic love energy into every cell of the body and often connects the giver to a web of like-energy for their own blessings.

I strongly encourage everyone who reads this to give in any way they can, but for this year specifically- take it beyond a donation online or a dollar in a bucket and show up in person to participate in the path of global healing!

“May your charity increase as much as your wealth” ~Proverb Quote
