If the act of giving increases the other person in some way or another, then give to her openly & abundantly.
And feel good about it.
Because when you feel good, you feel God.
And God is the abundant, unlimited supply of the Universe.
So by being in harmony with the Universe through the act of giving with The Impression of Increase, you are in harmony with the abundance that you will receive.
This is one of the natural laws, much like the law of gravity - everything & everybody falls victim or becomes a victor from - "discovered" by a scientist named Sir Issac Newton which states that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.
The act of giving alone will not determine the returns, but it is the amount of faith injected during the act that - combined with the act of giving - determines what you will receive.
This act of giving can be done in one or a combination of the three following ways: 1. Thought - we give continuously through the ether (the same channel that makes communicating with someone over the phone possible) images and ideas and feelings and emotions that arise within us.
We even at times pick up these images, ideas, feelings and emotions from others through the same channel.
Repeat these feelings or emotions (Energy in MOTION), images and ideas long enough then they not only imprint theirselves on the subconcious - the manipulative vehicle that governs the way we experience life by just projecting what we inject into it (through repeated self suggestion) back into the physcial, outer world in the form of circumstances, events and people - but will lead to the second way of giving.
That in 2. Word.
We bring to ourselves the negative we experience as much as we bring the positive through the words we speak.
We speak of them long enough, combined with a corresponding image and emotion it becomes an affirmation.
A statement of fact which we give to God or we give to the Universe and receive in return like energy, or in this case the affirmation, that comes close to the image(s) we had while giving it.
This will lead us into 3. Action which I feel is the most powerful way to give and thus makes it the most powerful way to receive.
"By thought the thing you want is brought to you, by action you receive it." - Wallace Delois Wattles.
Every act that you do is either consciously or sub/unconsciously in aligned with the thoughts you think or/and the words you speak.
A conscious alignment of these "three ways of giving" which are in fact the "three ways of receiving" will increase the number of streams of the money you receive, the state your health is in and the state of your relationships.
Earl Nightingale in The Strangest Secret mentions how you must first plant the seed of what you want to receive - by first giving it in thought then in word then in deed or action - then caring for this seed and working towards its realisation.
He says not only will it become real, but there is no way it cannot.
