An Exercise in Giving and Receiving


Affirmation: I AM aware of the thoughts and energy I offer the world. For what I give out to the world I receive. I AM the creator of my life.  

I’ve been studying A Course in Miracles and the lesson I just completed was on Giving and Receiving.

When you think about giving and receiving there are times when we able to give more, and other times when we are put in the position to need to receive more.  At one time or another it may not feel completely balanced but overtime life does seem to create a balance with giving and receiving. Also we need to keep in mind that sometimes things come in different ways. The energy is the same, its just that the form it chose to manifest in was different based on an individuals perceived need.

 A Course in Miracles teaches us that what we give out comes back to us in equal amounts. Whatever you offer is returned to you. The idea here is to be truely conscious in what you give out, how much you give and the feeling attached to it, because what you give comes back. This isn’t just centered around physical items, help, etc. This includes what you think.  Think negative thoughts, those get sent out and that energy comes back to you in one form or another. Think positive thoughts, those get sent out and that energy comes back to you. Now this can really put things into perspective. Think of all the thoughts that run through your head every day. The ones you latch onto, the ones that quickly pass by, the ones you voice. Listen to what you are thinking and/or saying because whatever it is, is energy you are giving and that energy is coming right back to you like a boomarang.

So the question here is: how much love energy are you giving out throughout the day? And by love energy I mean unconditional love, acceptance. Catch yourself throughout the day and notice what you are giving out. If it’s something you wouldn’t want back, stop yourself and change the energy.

Here’s the exercise from A Course in Miracles I’ve been practising.

Affirm the things that you would like to have given to you and offer them to others.

  • I offer everyone peace.
  • I offer everyone love.
  • I offer everyone success.
  • I offer everyone prosperity.
  • I offer everyone support.
  • I offer everyone compassion.
  • I offer everyone wealth and financial abundance.

As you recite what you give out feel how much of it you are giving. Then pause for a moment to allow the universe to give that energy back to you. Take your time with each affirmation and really feel what you are giving and receiving.  Do the exercise in front of the mirror and repeat it when it comes to mind as you go about your day.
