An Abundant Heart: How Do I Learn to Give?

When you grow up poor, never having enough for yourself, your family, even enough to fill your small belly at dinnertime, you sometimes forget how different others feel about giving. Perhaps, wealthy philanthropists are simply expected to give a certain amount of their money as a tax break. Some who have become rich after a life of poverty give more easily. Some people growing up used to the idea that a tithe if expected of God to the church. I walked to Catholic church myself, most Sundays. Perhaps, a neighbor would drive me. I watched as people put offerings in the basket, but I never quite found the place in my heart that became committed to the idea that there was a God-figure out there in the Universe expecting a payback from anything I received. I tried many times to simply tithe blindly or plan to give in certain ways. Every time, I felt empty and as if was an organic act. For me, it seems that my heart had to learn to let go of the insecurity of not having enough to learn to give generously.

We forget that generosity is a learned behavior. Often times, generosity is halted by old beliefs that you will never have enough—that you must hold on tightly to what you have, so that you will never feel poor again. I get it. I’ve been there. Here is a meditation that respects this mindset and offers a prayer and treatment for a change of heart. (continue reading below…)

Video of the Meditation Below:

 

There was a time in my life when I quit my job in New York to study the scriptures. I was on a completely Christian path then. I remember praying about my needs. During a fast, I received a vision to go to the Actor’s Equity Building. On the 16th floor was a receptionist’s office that had a list of perspective jobs for out-of-work actors. I was told in the vision to apply for the third job in the stack of jobs. The vision was very specific.

I listened to the angels or spirit that was encouraging and leading my heart into my calling, my perfect place on this Earth. I immediately saw that this job was a part-time job that paid $8 an hour. Certainly this was not enough to even pay for my expenses in NYC let alone classes. But, I didn’t pay attention to my brain. I listened to the guidance I received—for the first time in my life. I wanted to live by faith alone.

The job had already been taken by the time I applied, but the owner interviewed me anyway. He was so impressed with me that he called the other person and told him that he wouldn’t need his services. This same man, my boss, was also the owner of a recording studio. It was from the generosity of this same man that I recorded my first Spiritual Demo of music that I had written.

This is a simple story, but a powerful example of changing the course of how you are led. When you release and let go of that which no longer serves you, you make room for Spirit to begin filling your life with what matters. I even was allowed to use the studios that I rented out to people to teach privately, voice and piano, which made me more money than I had had in many months living in the city.

Your prosperity and Spirit’s leading in your life may take a few years of planting seeds and nurturing them for the substance of your prayers to manifest, but it will happen. Trust me. I am living proof of this.

This meditation is an extension of this belief. I hope you enjoy it and encourage friends to join our meditation group.

Free Guided Meditation on YouTube about “Manifesting Your Dreams!”

Everyone I know wants to feel as if the dreams in his or her mind can manifest in the physical world? Is there a secret to this happening. No secret, actually. You simply must follow the law of prosperity to get prosperity, just as you must follow the laws of growing a garden to have healthy crops and a plentiful harvest.

Many of life’s greatest lessons are in Jesus’s teachings, his metaphors about life. He often relates life and dreams to planting seeds. He talks about faith in terms of the size of a mustard seed. Seeds have an amazing and powerful message. Just as the Mighty Oak is in the tiny seed, so it is with our dreams in our mind.

They must be planted or supplanted in the Subjective Consciousness so that the Creation can begin. You see, it is not with any power of our own that a seed grows. We do the planting, the dreaming, the planning, but God grows the seed. There is nothing we can do to make that seed actually grow except provide the right and perfect atmosphere.

 

This is the exact metaphor of manifesting your dreams.

Take part in today’s meditation with me and learn to manifest that which is in your mind, by focus, faith, and a determined mind to manifest only positive thoughts towards your dreams!

A Guided Meditation for Compassion

Not everyone in the world understands compassion. In fact, most of us would be happy to find just a few people everyday experiencing and demonstrating compassion. Even though we don’t see it as much as we would like, this One Compassionate Mind exists in everyone. It is only with compassion we can see it in each other.

The word Namaste that we say at the end of Yoga Class is very much a symbol of this acknowledgement. “Spirit in Me honors the Spirit in You!”

In this honoring we ourselves, perhaps, at a time when we didn’t understand compassion. We see ourselves coming to the end of our own unhealthy ego and finding the one true Spirit within that honors all.

This meditation below will help you embrace these concepts. I hope you get the opportunity to listen in a quiet space and practice the exercise at the end of the session.
