The focus of LEAP today is primarily on appreciation and giving. The Disseminating Moon phase or harvesting portion of collective energy is here. We pray that our LEAP (Love, Enjoy, Appreciate, Play) program is bringing all of you something of great value. We actively go into our hearts and give through the LEAP program everyday. We find it to be a great testament in the law of love active in our lives.
Jesus taught the law of love. And that there is no power greater than love, and for that, the powers that were during his time could not allow him to continue on for fear of losing their power over the people. His message was clear – that underlying all that is, is love, and only by our learning to be and express love will we ever become whole, as individuals as well as a collective people.
When you give from a place of pure love and no expectations, magical things are bound to occur. The most common reference to this would be “tithing”, but we feel a religious, negative or otherwise distracting connotation may arise from this. We appreciate the simplest form in which love connects with a higher purpose or Spirit, and think growth and evolving in a loving way can be made simple.
At this time, the collective energy is in the field of giving back. Set aside even a dollar towards a higher purpose, for no payback to you, but simply for the act of giving freely. If it is truly in your heart to do so, we believe, it is destined to reflect abundance. We also, suggest surrounding yourself with the colors gold and silver. They have great reflecting power for spiritual abundance. If you focus a loving light on what you give, that light can be received and magnified back to you from all who are willing to receive it. We are all aware of the fact that in this life, there are many good deeds that go unrewarded. However, if you give from a place of love, not searching for any outcome, and If there is a focus on what the other will receive, instead of what you may get in return, then that is the basis of true giving and manifesting love.
While there are countless experiments linking giving or tithing to great abundance, there is a particular 1940’s story about a Michigan farm experiment and you can find it here in our past month’s blog.
As far as this law of love goes, and acts of giving, we suggest meditating with Holy Harmony. Breathe very conscious breaths along with it and send loving light out into the world to be received by any and all who are in need of it. Perhaps you know exactly who to give to, then send your loving meditation to them specifically. If you don’t know, ask for a sign and direction of where to give! We find that when you ask to be shown something, there is almost always an answer. Write your question in a journal, day planner, ask it out loud in the shower, pray while laying in bed, meditate on it outside, tell friends and family, anything to put it out there.
There are wonderful heart opening poses here in a previous post to get your body in balance with this time. We always suggest a few drops of essential oils over your heart to focus you, Abundance Oil by Young Living , or their Purification Blend for direction and thoughts of giving.
Find a place within your heart to freely give love out to others. Something very memorable from our Bikram Yoga days was, “find the ease in your effort”. When it comes to all things in life, you can’t use force. Well actually you CAN, but when you do there are negative emotions and stigmas that become associated with it. Where you fall in the level of giving doesn’t matter. Love should be your motivation and to only give what makes you comfortable. If you don’t find yourself in a loving state to give, evaluate where you are, and if your heart is closed off to it, address the situation. Feel your heart and face it head on. Let go of anything you maybe harboring so that you can be the master instead of allowing anything to rule over you.
This time of the LEAP program we feel a great appreciation for what we get to do here at Souls Converge. And although we feel the small quakes and growing pains that come with the decision to create a small organization for the spiritual community, we appreciate the path that has led us here to write these for you. We pray you find it in your heart to give in some way and that if you are on the receiving end of someone giving to you, reflect that love and generosity onto others! In the beginning, you may only be able to give $10 a week, but the energy behind it will prevail. The love and energy you send out with that $10 dollars can come back to you ten-fold. Our hearts envision that sort of abundance for all of you!
