It seems a little counterintuitive doesn’t it. Give money away and you will receive even more back. Giving is one of the most powerful principles of all time and it is something that we should all be practicing daily.
The laws of the universe specify that the more money you give to others, the more you will get back. Money is meant to be circulated and it is not meant to be hoarded. By giving to others selflessly and without resentment there is no option but for you to receive it back.
When you give money away to others you are letting the universe know that you believe you have ample supply and you are removed from the lack mindset. You are showing that you trust that the universe is going to bring you all the money you desire and that you are not concerned that it is your last dollar.
If you have ever heard the story from Tony Robbins about him giving away his money you will understand how this works.
One day he was in a restaurant after having lunch when he saw a young boy sitting there with his mother ready to enjoy a meal together. The mother got up to go to the toilet and Tony headed across to speak to him. He asked the boy if he was taking his mother out for lunch and the boy proceeded to tell him that he didn’t have enough money to pay for it.
Well, without hesitation, Tony pulled all the money he had out of his pocket, gave it to the boy, told him to buy his mother lunch and then walked out of the restaurant.
This was at a time when money was tight and he had just given this boy his last few dollars until payday.
However, Tony trusted that he would be looked after and even if he had to fast for a couple of days then that would be fine. But he never needed to fast because shortly after he gave that money away, he received a call from somebody who owed him money and they paid him this money straight away.
It is important to understand that the universe always has your back and will always make sure that you are looked after if you believe that it will. Let go of “hopeful’s” and “what if’s” and just trust that when you give money out you will get more back.
In fact, many experts say that for every $1 you give out (whether through donating or spending) you will get $7 back.
I make sure that every month I always have at least $50 sitting in my purse (sometimes more) that I can use to give away to others when I feel the desire.
If I see a homeless person on the street that I believe could use it then I will either buy them a meal or pass then $10. If I want to pay for somebody’s coffee or meal, then I will do that.
I do it because I know how powerful it is when it comes to manifestation but also because it makes me feel good. I don’t need thanks or praise from people because I know that what I have done is enough to make them feel good and to help change their vibration as well.
So, taking this all into account, there are a couple of benefits associated with giving to others:
BENEFIT #1 – IT MAKES YOU FEEL HAPPY AND FULFILLED
Generosity triggers neurochemical systems that increase pleasure and reduce stress. This means that you will maintain a high frequency state, therefore moving into the frequency of money.
BENEFIT #2 – IT ATTRACTS MORE MONEY
By giving money away you are signalling to the universe that you trust it and you know that you have more than enough. This will attract more to you.
There may be several concerns you have right now about giving money away. Hopefully my answers to these concerns/questions will put your mind at rest…
“I don’t have enough money to give away because I barely have enough to pay the bills”.
Firstly, by even focusing on the belief that you don’t have enough money to pay the bills you are showing the universe that you believe your money is limited. Understand that money is infinite and once you move yourself into a mindset of abundance then you will start to see money flowing in.
You need to halt the resistance associated with money and understand that even if you only have a few dollars that you can give away comfortably then start with that.
“Can’t I just start giving once I am rich?”
This is counterproductive because giving is a wealth habit that must be practiced, and it is the giving which is going to help you get rich and not the other way around.
It is time to get out of your comfort zone and realise that giving money away is critical if you are wanting to manifest incredible wealth. The more you give, the more you get. Try to get to the point where you are giving at least 10% of your net income.
What if the person I give it to doesn’t spend it correctly?
This is possibly another question you are asking yourself. You need to understand that once you have given the money it is no longer yours and that person can do what they like with it.
Let go of that fact and give without expectation, knowing that you have just started circulating the money which means that even more is on its way back to you.
Can’t I just give my time or my talents?
Although I believe that giving your time and talents away is a great strategy to manifest abundance in your life, if you are really wanting to manifest “wealth” in particular, money is the resource you need to give. After all, what you give out is what will come back as the energies align.
However, you can also create products or services that will provide value to others (a great way to also increase your wealth) and/or volunteer your time. Decluttering your house and donating to op shops and thrift shops is another way to give too.
I would give but I don’t know where to…
There are many different places you are able to give to, depending on your own spiritual beliefs or where you feel inspired to give.
To help you along, here are a few options:
- You can support your favourite online blogger, podcaster, youtuber, author by contributing to their patreon.com or classy.com account. This also helps your favourite content creator bring further value to you and others.
- You can donate to causes helping the homeless. There are many organisations out there that help people find homes or provide food/shelter for those without accommodation. 1 great place you can go to is “United Way.
- Donate to “Pencils of Promise”. This is an incredible organisation that builds schools, trains teachers and funds scholarships. Plus, what is so great about this organization is that you know that every single dollar you spend with them is going to go towards the children in the country that the charity works in.
- Support entrepreneurs throughout the world by donating to “Kiva.com”. This site allows you to fund people who are wanting to start their own businesses. You get to go through the site, decide who you want to support and then put $25 towards it. The great thing about this site is that it is more an investment because you do get your money back.
- Donate to “Books for Africa”. This is a fantastic organisation that collects, sorts, ships and distributes books to students in Africa. You can either donate money or books, depending on your preference.
Please note: This article is from my book “Alter Your Money Mindset” which can be found on Amazon, which is why it is based on money, but it can be applied to anything you are wanting to manifest…
