The Giving and Receiving Exchange; when does this take place? How about when moving? Do you recall the stress level or was it a time of peace for you? When it comes to getting rid of things during your move, do you ever think of the Giving and Receiving Exchange?
Giving Versus Receiving
Its easy to give something that we don’t want, isn’t it? Anyone can do that. If you’re detailed, you may be questioning who the right person would be, to receive what you don’t want. Or, you could just donate to a second hand store which are all the rage now and people can purchase interesting things at a very low cost. But what if you were to give something away that you truly liked? Something that you had in your home and you’re unable to part with for whatever reason? Have you done this before and if you have, how did that make you feel?
The Emotional Connection Exchange
You see, giving is opposite of receiving and yet there is a giving and receiving exchange because of the emotional connection. When a person receives, they may be elated, gratified, excited; you can see the joy on their face! And the giver may also experience various feelings at the same time! When in the same room the emotional connection is so close and hugs may be given and exchanged. Its called an exchange because of the emotions that run between the giver and receiver at that time. In addition, when there are several people, the emotional connection could be even higher!
Something to Think About
Reflecting on what that exchange means, have you ever received something broken from someone? How did that cause you to feel? Were you elated or disgruntled? Think on that for a moment because that very feeling may be broken. And the reverse is also true. Only you may not know it.
I’ve been in that position before and initially, I was very grateful, which is an abundant mindset. There were many things that our family was receiving and then when it became a repeated action, I became disgruntled realizing we had a lot of broken things. That broken feeling became a lack mindset. It was there for a time. Now as that journey continues, I am grateful again for the things we enjoy. Realize, that when you become grateful for blessings, more will flow to you and when the opposite is true, lack will follow you.
The Abundant Exchange
Another consideration is The Abundant Exchange. What do I mean by that? Well, when you give, whether its money or objects, do you give of your best or the cheap? What about on a Sunday morning collection? Do you give from the top or a small amount? Giving is truly thinking about the receiver, their emotions and what it could do for them. Its easy to think of what it could do for the receiver as yourself. Yes, you will receive but its really about the other person or group. Its keeping yourself out of the picture. Its like planting seeds. Plant a seed of any size and it grows very large. Plant something that doesn’t give, and weeds take over.
Everyone has an abundance of something, whether it be time, talents, money or objects. Once you give in the way of blessings to others, you won’t even miss it! Be a Giver and bless a Receiver and feel the emotions for the Giving and Receiving Exchange!
