The Law of Receiving operates on two basis that keeps it in motion:
- In order to receive you must firstly give.
- If you receive you must give, and as you give you receive more.
As you can see it’s more about giving rather than receiving, because that’s how you put it in motion.
Think about it!
Would you give fuel/ energy to your car before going on a journey?
Would you put wood in a stove to get heat?
Would you eat to gain the energy to go through the day?
Of course you would, because that’s how it works! You can’t drive without fuel, you can’t get heat without fuel, you can’t get energy without fuel.
Now, if you imagine that everything is energy (this is actually a fact), the exchange is between energies. No matter what you give, by law you will receive back. Plants, animals, rocks, food, you and your thoughts are all energy… different levels of vibration but still energy…
You noticed that I said thoughts are energy. Thoughts can be exchanged for other forms of energy. The idea of a light bulb in Edison’s mind became a physical object when the energy of thought was applied on it. The idea of a flying object in Wright brothers’ minds became a physical thing when enough mind energy was applied on it.
These people received an idea and they gave all the energy that was necessary to give it life, and bring it to our physical reality. We all receive ideas… we all have ideas… how many of these ideas actually become reality? The correct answer is: all those that received the necessary energy to be created. Everything you have in your life was an idea to which you gave energy enough to make it a reality. Did you want food? you gave your energy to whatever activity and got food. Did you want clothes? you gave your energy to whatever activity and got clothes. Whatever this energy is called (asking, working, money, etc) it is an energy that you gave out in order to receive.
I know you’re thinking now of all the people sleeping on the streets that didn’t ask and didn’t give any energy and yet they receive food and clothes, but the truth is they receive all these as a chance to grow and multiply what they received. If any of these would start giving back for what they received, their fortune will start growing. I mentioned that thoughts are energy too… there are literally thousands of people that lived on the streets and all changed for them when they started being grateful, and the more they were grateful the more they were receiving, and the more they were receiving, the more grateful they became… until they built empires.
Jennifer Lopez slept on the sofa of her dance studio.
James Cameron lived out of his car before selling the rights to ‘The Terminator’ for $1
Jim Carrey once lived out of a VW camper van and in a tent on his sister’s front lawn
Halle Berry once stayed in a homeless shelter in her early 20s
Daniel Craig, aka James Bond, once had to sleep on park benches in London
Millionaire Chris Gardner, who inspired the movie ‘The Pursuit of Happyness‘ was homeless with a young son while he took part in a finance training program.
Joe Vitale who feature in the movie “The Secret“, Steve Harvey, Hilary Swank, Charlie Chaplin, Shania Twain are only a few of the names that come to mind of people that transformed their life.
Bob Proctor says “We must willingly give and graciously receive. We must give in order to receive. However, we need to let go and not being attached to what we want to receive too obsessively. We need to trust the universe will somehow give us what we want and all we need to do is to be ready to receive it. How much we receive will be limited by how much we allow it.”
“Graciously receive” – never say no to someone who gives you something. Whatever you’ve done, whatever energy you’ve given comes back from the Universe in a form or another. People giving your are the way the Universe pays you back, so when this happens, graciously accept, be grateful and keep giving, because this way you keep the law running. Accept what is given, be grateful for what is given and give back from what is given because the more you give, the more you receive.
Even if it’s something negative that you receive, it happens because of a negative energy you gave in the past and is an extraordinary opportunity to shift this negative into a positive. Be grateful for it, give thanks for it and accept it with open heart and in return give a positive energy. I know it’s hard… impossible some may say… but whatever you give is what you receive.
What is it that you want? Give more of that!
Do you want to be loved? Give your love first!
Do you want attention and appreciation, give attention and appreciation
Do you want material affluence, help others to become materially affluent.
Do you want money? Give money! You may say you don’t have money, but I know you do and the fact you don’t admit it is even worse. As a general rule 10% of what you earn give it away… consider it wood for the stove, fuel for the car or seeds in the ground… give, give, give… just give and you shall receive.
And I would like to end this with a beautiful poem written by Arthur William Beer:
To get he had tried, yet his store was still meager
To a wise man he cried, in a voice keen and eager;
Pray tell me how I may successfully live?
And the wise man replied, “To get you must give.”
As to giving he said, “What have I to give?”
I’ve scarce enough bread, and of course one must live;
But I would partake of Life’s bountiful store.
Came the wise man’s response: “Then you must give more.”
The lesson he learned; to get was forgotten,
Toward mankind he turned with a love new begotten.
As he gave of himself in useful living
Then joy crowded his days, for he grew rich in giving.
Thank you for reading.
Love and Peace!
