Sharing is an extremely important element of the Law of Attraction.
This page was originally called "giving" and yes, the two words are interchangeable, but I heard a totally new explanation of the entire concept. Now I like the word "share" much better.
What we have to understand about the Law of Attraction is that the emotion attached to every thought, sends a message out into the Universe. It causes a vibration and a frequency. When you can "share" with others, you're message is telling the Universe that you are not lacking for anything. You're saying that you already have more than enough and no one is taking anything "away" from you. That's a good vibration to be in.
Sharing doesn't mean that you have to give expensive gifts or money. You can share or give so many other things. A simple smile or a compliment are often enough. Just make someone else's day a little bit better. Live from your heart and do what feels right for you.
We also have to remember that energy flows. What goes out must be returned, so we must also learn to receive. Many of us grew up hearing the old saying, "It's better to give than to receive", so we didn't learn how to receive.
Receiving can mean many things. It could be receiving someone's love in return or their appreciation in return. Whatever it is, learn to also be a good receiver. If the Universe is ready to deliver and you don't know how to receive, it may get pushed away.
The words sharing, giving and donating usually bring money to mind, but even if it does have "monetary value" it doesn't have to be a lot. Donate clothes or things that you no longer need to charity. Drop off a few cans of dog food or cat food at the local Humane Society. Animals count too. Buy someone a cup of coffee. Although, always remember that you should never do without, in order to give to another. You are #1.
You don't have to be a "people pleaser". You don't have to spend hours taking care of everyone else. Do what makes you feel good. Do it because you want to do it, not because you feel that you have to. Everyone is here to have their own experience. Allow others to have theirs.
Another related part of that is the EXPECTATION of being compensated. What we often do is expect a "reward" of some kind for what we do. This is why they say to do what you love, with no expectations.
What can I do to make a small difference?
This website is an example. They say to do what you love and I honestly love doing it. I've learned so much from all of my reading and listening, that I want to share it with as many people as I can. If I can help just a few people to realize that they're not victims, it will make my day. If I can help someone feel just a little bit better about life, then I'll be happy.
That reminds me of something else I heard recently. I used to be so obsessed with my website traffic and building a following. Then I heard:
You are NOT here to save the world. You may be here to inspire just a few and that's enough.
Our beliefs are limiting us.
Why some of us have difficult challenges in our life.
Thank you for visiting my website. I appreciate all of you.
