Spiritual Solutions #28: Be In Tune and Expanded
The More Energy You Devote to Something, The More You Have
Here are a few steps that can cause the channels of energy to expand:
Learn to give. When you feel most like hoarding, turn to someone in need and offer some of what you possess in abundance. This doesn’t have to be money or goods. Time and attention can expand channels of energy more than cash.
Be generous. This means generous in praise and appreciation even more than generous with your money. Most people hunger for praise.
Follow your passion. Some area in your life makes you want to spend all your energy there. For most people, there’s a built-in inhibition about going too far.
