When I first read Deepak Chopra’s The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, the mix of emotions was overwhelming, and I wanted to do everything that he talked about right away. However, one law that became seamlessly easy to incorporate into my daily life was the law of giving.

As Chopra describes it, the law of giving is a universal exchange of dynamic energy, “Our willingness to give that which we seek (provides us with an opportunity to) keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives” (p. 25). In other words, in order to receive, we must be cognizant of giving. And when we give specifically what we desire, we are more likely to receive it.

The dynamic exchange of circulation that Chopra addresses tell us that we should remain open to keep the circulation process of giving and receiving constantly flowing. Once we cut it off by not giving, this in turn limits or stifles our ability to receive.

In Luke 6:38, we learn that if we “give, it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.” As I mentioned, this law is probably the easiest one to incorporate because when we are around others we are given several opportunities daily to meet each others’ needs. And these needs often do not cost us anything. Our gift to someone else could be in the form of a compliment, well wishes or even a prayer.

My questions to you are, how much do you want to manifest the desire of your heart? And what are you willing to do to change your current situation? My suggestion is to GIVE, that what you are asking God to bless you with. Sometimes it takes a little bit of creativity – but if you really desire to manifest and receive it, then do what you can to GIVE it to someone else.
