House Warming: The power of giving and receiving

Before starting my business, I worked for international children’s charities. The desire to help uplift the quality of life for others is a big part of why I began practicing Feng Shui. So when I heard about Davezillion.com, I just had to join…

Davezillion.com is a home improvement website based on neighbors helping neighbors. Anyone can sign up and post what they can offer (free of charge) in their community. Examples could include: painting a neighbor’s room, helping to remove an old appliance, or cutting down a dying tree. In exchange, you can request help with getting your household items done.  It’s the classic barter system, which is a great way to save a few dollars in this economy.  But it’s more than that…its people caring about one another, which makes for better communities and a better quality of life.

Heart Warming

 The Chopra Center, the institute started by Deepak Chopra to help people experience greater fulfillment in their lives, suggests some easy steps to begin experiencing the power of Giving and Receiving right away:

“I will put the Law of Giving into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps:

1. Wherever I go, and whomever I encounter, I will bring them a gift. The gift may be a compliment, a flower, or a prayer. Today, I will give something to everyone I come into contact with, and so I will begin the process of circulating joy, wealth and affluence in my life and in the lives of others.

2. Today I will gratefully receive all the gifts that life has to offer me. I will receive the gifts of nature: sunlight and the sound of birds singing, or spring showers or the first snow of winter. I will also be open to receiving from others, whether it be in the form of a material gift, money, a compliment or a prayer.

3. I will make a commitment to keep wealth circulating in my life by giving and receiving life’s most precious gifts: the gifts of caring, affection, appreciation and love. Each time I meet someone, I will silently wish them happiness, joy and laughter.”
