I had a curious series of events happen a couple of weeks ago relating to the energetic nature of money. I had received some money relating to teaching meditation, which represented a new opportunity for me in that realm. When I saw the money come through, I thought it could be a good idea to give half of it to the organization through which I received my certification, as a way to give back and in appreciation. That particular day I hadn't had time to do more than quickly consider that idea, not act on it, when I saw an inspiring message sent to a large group of which I am a member talking about the positive effects received by the giver when one donates money or tithes. Within a couple of hours of reading that message, I randomly watched a webinar during my lunchtime which also reinforced the benefits of donating or tithing and specifically asked for donations for a need which had expanded in cost. Then, within a very short time I also randomly came across a blog not related to either of those previous touch points talking about the energetic link between tithing and receiving.
By the time I received that third external nudge, I really felt that the universe was giving me a strong signal that I should give that portion of what I had received as an offering of thanks. I quickly made the donation online to the need highlighted in the webinar (which is part of the organization through which I received my certification). Within a couple of hours of the donation I received a message completely unrelated to any of the connections mentioned so far in this blog, that for a reason that seemed to just fall out of the sky I was unexpectedly going to receive almost the exact amount I had just donated!
I didn't even make the connection about the money I had donated being almost equal to the amount I was unexpectedly receiving until a few hours later, as I was driving and had time to reflect on the course of the day in hindsight. It gave me goosebumps as I thought back to the email, webinar, and blog post which all emphasized the importance of giving and how that is an energetic act which then attracts what is being given back to the giver, and then that exact lesson manifested itself in my life. My day began with that seed of thought that I wanted to offer some of what I had received back to what had enabled it to appear in the first place, and without any effort on my part that seed of thought was watered throughout my day, culminating in actually performing the action of donating which then very quickly boomeranged back to me.
It's something for all of us to carefully consider. Money is energetic. If we hold on to it too tightly, we choke off that energetic flow and keep it from flowing to us. But by thoughtfully keeping that energy circulating we give ourselves the capability of it continuing to return to us.
