Category Archives: Giving Unconditionally

Do This And Your World Will Change!

“There is a practice that can help you get more of what you want in life.  It is powerful. It is simple. It is easy to apply. When you do you will find yourself transforming in thought, feeling, actions and the results you get. It is a game changer. Once you do it you’ll know why.

It is true that it rains on the rich and the poor. The sun shines on both the good and the bad. Good things happen to bad people and bad things happen to good people. Some readers may feel because of this that they aren’t going to engage in the following practice.

They miss the point and they will miss out. You will only know the benefit by actually doing the practice. Knowing comings from doing not from observing, listening or doing nothing. The proper fruit of knowledge is action. Take action and discover the good that comes.

What We Want To Do With Ease We Must First Do With Diligence

Giver’s get. Whatever you want, give it first. Grease the wheel. Take action. Take the first step. If you want love, give love. If you want peace, become peaceful. If you want money, give money. Give from a place of abundance. Give from your heart. Give freely. You’ll receive.

Expect to receive. Just don’t expect to receive from the same source you gave to. Don’t give to receive, give to give. Simply know in doing so you will receive. You must be willing to let go and not hoard. Give freely. Let go and enjoy giving. Make room for more by giving now.

In order to put new things in your closet you may need to make room by letting go of the old. Let go. Let go of thoughts and ideas that hold you back. Make room for new. Let go of old feelings and attitudes. Allow yourself to be refreshed by the renewing of your mind. Get it?

Go First – Initiate – Have Faith – Let Go – Allow – Give – Receive

Give in faith and trust that all will good and work out for the best. Develop an attitude that good always comes to you. Give your best and the best comes back. You don’t need to give everything away, that isn’t the point. Give to let go. Give to stop clinging. Give to benefit others. Give from a place of love and fulfillment. When you do you enrich yourself and your world. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Give To Live And Live To Give: It Is Miraculous

“A friend shared this quote recently. It is a powerful one. If you put this principle into practice it can immediately begin to transform your life and being. “Do the work that comes to you but don’t’ look for the results. Don’t be motivated by the fruits of your actions.”

I don’t know who the quote is attributed to but the principle is profound. Do good for the sake of doing good. Give for the sake of giving. Stop looking for return and do simply because you can and you want to. When you give, and give freely, miracles can happen.

You transform yourself when you give freely. When you do it for the joy of doing it, your inner joy is magnified and multiplied. There is a reason some say it is ‘better to give than to receive’. BOTH are important. It is important you can do both well. Be a great giver!

Go The Extra Mile – Go Beyond What Is Expected Of You

Be a great receiver. Stop denying and begin accepting.  But since this post is on giving, focus on giving. Go the extra mile. Do something nice and special for someone for no reason at all. Seek to make others smile and feel good. Always have a kind word or thought.

Share and give without any thought of benefiting yourself. Put your attention on benefiting others THEN you will discover the joy, bliss and blessings that come from doing without wanting. Most people want so much that they forget to let go of wanting and just live.

Live to the utmost. Help others do the same. As you do you release inner talents, abilities and resources you may not even be aware that you have. You get back from within you, even if you don’t get back from without. What you put out you get back. Give freely. Enjoy.

Givers Get – What Goes Around Comes Around – Give To Give

Delight in being able to make others feel better. When you do you will too. Help others find the good and new, the blessings, in all situations. Find the lessons within adversity and transform all situations. Delight in all things and your life will be incredible beyond anything you could ever imagine! Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How To Live And Feel More Abundantly

“There is the story of the of the poor widow who had nothing but gave from her limited supply, versus the uber wealthy, who gave little in comparison. The widow gave generously from her meager supply. The wealthy gave stingily from their plenty. Hmmmm.

The widow is the role model for giving. She would be get back or be rewarded. That is the example set forth in the story. Giving comes from the heart not the pocket. If you want to live abundantly, you need to feel abundant. Your mindset should be on plenty not on lack.

The widow gave generously from the little she had. She is bound to get more. The wealthy ones gave little from their wealthy supply. Their hearts were more closed. Hers was more open. When you are open you are bound to discover opportunities and receive more.

Giving Opens The Way For Receiving – Enjoy Giving – Delight

At a  restaurant, do you order based on the price or by what you are hungry for. Do you get what you want or do you limit your choices by cost? When shopping do you limit yourself because you can’t afford items? When you give to others, do you limit your gifts?

There is nothing wrong with being frugal. Many millionaires live below their means. They look for bargains and discounts. Saving your money and wise investments are smart steps in becoming financially free. The wealthy don’t buy everything either.

The point is, do you feel wealthy or not? Some very rich people may not feel wealthy while some with far less may feel very rich. It is a mindset, a belief, a practice and a habit. Some people are generous givers, others withhold and are not. Abundance is a mindset!

Become A Generous Giver And An Excellent Receiver – Enjoy

Try giving more. That may mean you tip a little better. You tip more frequently. You don’t qualify your giving but give it freely. You don’t have to go nuts, you just do a little bit better than you would have. You don’t even have to give money. Give more smiles. Anything!

Give compliments. Give a hand. Help someone else. Share some tips and suggestions. Turn someone on to a new restaurant, a new shop, and new service. Give referrals. Share some tips and advice. Recommend some books or blogs. Give someone a ride. Help out!

Give of your attention. Give of your time. The point is to practice being generous, to feel good about giving. When you give, you open the doorway for getting back. Give to give. Give to put a smile on someone’s face. Give with no expectation of return. Simply give!

Energy Flows Where Your Attention Goes – Feel Blessed

Give because you can, as the poor widow did. It isn’t the size of the gift. It is the heart of the giver that matters. If you give because you feel blessed and are thankful and grateful for whatever little or plenty you have, you are operating abundantly. Get it? I hope so.

You create more abundance when you feel abundance. When you feel blessed and grateful. When you enjoy life so much you want to help others feel good too. Share whatever you can share to help others move forward. Share and allow others to share with you.

A closed mind and a closed heart generates little. An open, generous mind and heart, generates a lot. This is why it is said your return is 10 times or more. What you give, can exponentially return to you. Allow it. Accept it. Receive it by giving it. Welcome it, when it returns.

Practice Abundance – Feel Like You Already Have Everything 

Practice gratitude. Inspire yourself and others. Seek to feel your best. Delight yourself. Delight others. Share. Give. Share blessings and give thanks. Enjoy assisting others because you are helping yourself too. From abundance to abundance. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

The Secret To Success: Become An Excellent Giver And Receiver

Is there a way to increase the speed and likelihood of good things coming your way? Yes, indeed. Think and do good things first. Like attracts like. Be open and optimistic. Allow others to support you and do good things for you in return. Don’t dismiss other’s kindness.

Don’t diminish things by saying, ‘it was nothing,’ or ‘you shouldn’t have,’ or ‘you don’t have to’. Say, ‘you are welcome, my pleasure’, and ‘thank you!’ BE grateful. Be pleased. Enjoy the return. Accept good things that come your way. Feel blessed and celebrate. Receive!

You give. You allow. You create an intention and with faith take inspired actions to make it happen. You then allow. Get out of the way and let things happen. It doesn’t mean you quit giving or doing. It means you let things unfold without micromanaging. Receive!

The Thankful Receiver Bears The Bountiful Harvest

Be open and available. Allow it to come in whatever form it comes in. It may not come in the form of cash. It could come in the form of energy, or freed up time or a form of assistance from others. It could come in the form of a a new friendship. It can come in any way!

It can come in any form and in any number of different ways. Unless you are alert and aware, you may not recognize it. YES, it could come in the of cash, if that is what you gave or put out. You want to recognize it and celebrate it. You want to feel blessed. Feel it fully.

You want to realize the harvest. Recognize and acknowledge it. Celebrate feeling blessed. When you recognize the return you increase your faith and willingness to continue. Then you spiral up into more good things. Like attracts like. You get more good back!

The Secrets Of The Universe Are Energy Vibration And Frequency

Understand, it’s not for you to dictate how it comes back to you. Just as it is not for you to dictate how others use what you give. Let the unexpected happened. Let yourself be surprised and delighted. Open yourself up. Trust in what is. That is faith! That is believing.

Remember, ‘ask, believing you will receive and you will receive.’ Through faith you shape your  mindset to experience miracles and magic every moment; small and large. Be on the lookout for good things coming your way. You are likely to find what you look for.

Be on the lookout for good, because it will come. Relax. Trust. Be open and available. Be an excellent giver. Be an excellent receiver. Expect miracles. Expect unexpected good. Anticipate things working out. Give cheerfully and receive cheerfully. Be positive and joyful.

Universe Gives Without Discrimination – The Sun Shines On All

The more open and aware you become, the more good you find. Never be disappointed if things don’t work out as planned. Be open to new surprises. Know it will work out eventually.  Be curious about how good will come your way; how it will all work out for good.

Go with the flow. What is IS. Learn to adjust and carry on. Continue. Know that you can always create of find a way. Be flexible! Wonder and discover what potential good is in the new version of what is happening.  Welcome goodness and opportunity into your life.

When you are welcoming, it can come to you. Invite goodness by first sharing goodness. It begins with YOUR thoughts, and feelings and actions. YOU get back what YOU put out. Be both; an excellent giver and an excellent receiver. Life becomes truly fascinating. Celebrate it all. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Secret: Good Returns To You When You Create Flow

“Can you really give and get back? It depends on what you focus on. If you go out in the morning looking for smiles you are bound to find them. You may also encounter some frowns. If you begin focusing on the frowns, it’s likely, you will find many more of them.

Energy flows where attention goes. Instead of getting the smiles you wanted, and began with, you were distracted by, and diverted to, frowns. Frowns; you get what you don’t want. So, you must not be thrown off by the ‘negative’ and stay focused on what you want.

Remember to think of it as creating what you want. You initiate and you maintain it by your thoughts, feelings and actions. It is not magically happening. You are doing it. You are attracting it by your mindset and attitude. You claim what you want and make it happen.

Life Is A Boomerang – You Get Back What You Give Out – Flow

Create flow. You can keep money moving whether you’re moving a dime from a $1, or $10 from $100, or $100 from $1,000, or $1,000 from $10,000.  Get this?  It is the flow you create by moving energy. Money is energy.  Energy flows where attention goes. Move it!

It is not the amount that is important but the flow you create. As I mention the Bible references 10%. That is 10% of your finest, first, top of the line goods. That could be money, time, energy, attention, love,  respect, and more. Whatever you give, give quality.

You don’t have to follow the Biblical standard unless you want to. It is worth it to try it however, to discover how it works. However, you must do what is right for you not because I say it. AND it is can be good to be willing to explore and do new things if you haven’t.

Give Your Best And Receive Back The Best – It Is Cyclic – Create It

When you give your best, you may expect the best. When you go the extra mile, magical things seem to happen. You are creating it by your thoughts and intentions. You make it happen by your attitude, feelings and actions. Remember,  ‘if it is to be, it is up to me.’

When your intention is to give freely, with no though of how it must return, then you create a climate in which you give and are open to receive. It’s just as important to be an open and available receiver as it is to be an open and generous giver. Both are part of the equation.

This means don’t demand how it is to come back. Allow it to come to you in any form at any time. Don’t be discouraged. Enjoy giving for the sake of giving and helping others. When it comes accept it. Don’t deny it or push it off. Welcome it. Don’t say, ‘it was nothing.’

Gratitude – Feeling Blessed – Shifts You To A Higher  Frequency

Say, ‘thanks!’. BE enthused. Enjoy. Delight and celebrate. The more optimistic and positive you are, the more you delight and enjoy the more you get back. Create that flow. Create that cycle. Remember, it circulates.  Allow yourself to be blessed. Expect but don’t insist.

Next time, I’ll discuss your focus. It is important to focus on giving, and not the recipient or how your giving is utilized. For today, remember to practice gratitude. Give in a way that warms your heart and puts a smile on another person’s lips. Think about it!

You could pay someone a genuine compliment. You could smile. You might tip a little bit extra. You can open a door for someone or help someone out. You can simply imagine beaming love or positive energy to others and the world. Whether you give money or something else, give. Whatever you do, enjoy it. Give freely and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

How To Give And Get More Back

“You want a better a career, relationship, economic situation, and life? What can you do to more easily have that? Do you attract it or do you create it? What is it about giving? Why does going the extra mile work? Why does tithing seem to work?  What gives with giving?

When your attitude and mindset is in a place of giving and you give to others, yourself, or in tithing, you’re coming from a place where you have something to give. You’re not coming from lack. You’re not coming from scarcity. You’re not coming from poverty. Get it?

You’re coming from a place of giving. You are generous. You create abundance because you are living from abundance. You are giving out of your plenty, even if you’re plenty is meager. Do you get this?
You are going the extra mile. You do more than is required of you.

Only By Giving Are You Able To Receive More Than You Have

You give. By giving you create. You have faith. You are  doing what is good and beneficial for you and others, too. You energy vibrates high. When your attitude and energy is high you tend to attract and, more importantly, create the same or similar energy. You create!

As the saying goes, ‘If it is to be, it is up to me.’  You are investing in yourself by thinking beyond yourself. You are helping others. You are giving back. When your mindset is right you create the climate, the attitude, the ambience for good things to happen. Responsibility.

it is your responsibility. Whether you believe it’s god blessing you or the universe, infinite intelligence or your subconscious, whatever you believe is your belief. It is your mindset. It is your perceptions, and that is fine. I have no argument with whatever you choose.

It’s How Much Love We Put Into Giving Not How Much We Give 

When you are generous you invite generosity back. Like attracts like. You create generosity and you get generosity. It’s not that you give it out and away from yourself. You actually give and benefit. You create a loop of giving and getting by giving without wanting return.

From your giving you believe you have enough. You believe it will return. Whether or not it returns is not a concern of yours. So your mindset is incredibly abundant. You don’t feel you are worse off by giving but you are better off from giving.  You create. It is positive.

You are living from gratitude, not stinginess. You are living from blessing. You are moving the energy. You are creating flow. Money is energy. The flow of money is energy. It is nothing more than that. It is from the exchange of money people get wealthy, not by hoarding.

You Don’t Have To Be Rich To Give Generously – Go The Extra Mile

If you have a pile of cash and do nothing with it, you truly are not rich. You have stockpiles but you aren’t benefiting. You benefit when you move it. Wealthy people keep money moving. Money moving, or circulating, grows an economy. We will explore more next time.

For now, live with gratitude. Cultivate the mindset of plenty. Affirm, visualize, create the feeling of having more than enough. Imbibe those feelings. Feel wealthy. Feel free to give. Wealth is not just money. It is many things that cost nothing. Learn to enjoy these.

Wealth is family and friendship. It is sunshine and rain. It is all the good around you and in you. It is your free time. Be grateful. Create inner wealth and abundance.  Give! What you hold in your mind you can one day hold in you hand. Appreciate and celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

I also include a link to an article I hope you enjoy. Pope Francis on giving. I think he made some excellent points and am providing the link so you can read it too.

Click Here To Read Article On Giving

Giving can be an unconditional act which seems to be the biblical injunction, or it can be a qualified act expecting some form of reciprocation. True compassion, true giving, means you give without qualifications. There are no strings attached.

Don’t worry about how the recipient utilizes your gift. Give and connect with the people you give to.  Treat people as people. Don’t just pass by the people you might give to on the street,  My belief is this form of giving is similar to the biblical form of forgiveness.

Forgive to forgive. Your forgiveness releases you. It has nothing to do with the object of your forgiveness. Let it go and go beyond petty grudges and ‘I’ll forgive but will never forget’ thinking. Give.  Forgive. Love. Help heal freely without qualifications. Celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

You Can Use A Loss Leader Because It Works!

horizons-rural-choir-phil-koch

“At times the best strategy is the loss leader. You lose now to win later. You give something away to get more in return. Trade shows, Chamber meetings, often provide treats at no cost or they give a free gift away which attracts you to their booth or to a consultation.

The loss leader is used to entice people to drop in. If you take their free candy most likely you will feel that you should stop and listen at least a moment. Yes, some people take a handful but keep going. Most succumb to the Law Of Reciprocity. You give they give back.

Candy is not a promotional item one gets in a swag  bag. Those are branded items they hope you will keep, or pass along. They bank on you giving them some business or referrals in the future. Reciprocity at work again. The  candy is to get people to stop and stick around.

Only By Giving You Will Attract More Than You Already Have

Companies are willing to give items away for free, at a loss, because it’s likely to increase their business down the road. It’s an investment that follows the rule of Go First. Give it away first and  people  will give back in return later. If it didn’t work no one would use it!

Within these blog pages, many times, I have referred to the Rule of Going First and The Law Of Reciprocity because when you give unconditionally to others they can respond in kind. Will everyone? No, but many or most will. Ignore the ones who don’t. Really, let it go.

Focus on what you want and who you want;the type of client or friend. If you want honest, loyal, trustworthy people who believe in you be that person to them first. Be that kind of client or provider or friend. Focus on what you want to create and attract. Then attract it.

Givers Advance The World – Takers Don’t Advance Others 

Birds of a feather flock together. The ones who don’t will fall by the wayside. That is fine. You still operate from a higher purpose or cause. You operate from a giving position. Give to give, not to get! It is the result of authentic, genuine giving that brings back the return.

Don’t focus on getting back. Focus on providing value. Focus on giving freely. Focus on being trustworthy. Focus on being loyal and honest. Focus on believing in the people you attract. When you’re pure of heart others will read that and respond. They really will!

Those who don’t, let go. This is how you create an incredible supportive tribe. Focus on the kind of tribe members you want and give to them first. The ones you want show up. The ones you don’t want let go of. Get it? Create and attract the good that you want!

Giving Liberates The Giver – Giving Creates More Freedom

If you genuinely love people and appreciate them they will know. You will get known for being that sort of person. If their interests are in your heart they will know and respond. The more grateful you are for the people around you the more grateful they will be too.

Your relationships will blossom and improve because of your focus and ability to give generously without strings attached. Delight in the opportunity to give, to serve, to go the extra mile, and you may attract dedicated raving fans and tribe members. So enjoy the process. Be sure to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes

Have a tremendous day!

The Giver’s Paradox

horizons-t-time-phil-koch

“If you want to increase your wealth, affluence, happiness and all goodness in your life practice giving for giving sake. Give to give! Don’t give to get. Give because you want to help and you are compassionate, kind, caring, thoughtful and sensitive. Give to give.

Think of others first and give. You don’t have to do it all the time. You don’t have to give away the farm. You don’t go into debt giving. You simply experiment and learn the true joy and blessings of giving. It is easy. Tip the doorman, the barista, your waiter a bit more. More.

Be generous instead of stingy. Someone said, if you get caught up in ‘should I give this much?’  Go ahead and give it. Err, on the side of too  much rather than on too little or the exact amount. Be generous and joyous. If you resent or regret any of it you are not giving joyously.

Cheerful Givers Don’t Count The Cost Of What They Give

Treat someone. Buy dinner. Pay for a movie. Devote some time. Hang out. Help them with a chore or situation. It doesn’t have to be just cash you give. You can give your time, energy,  effort, attention, companionship, respect, and money. The point is you give.

If you are giving to get something in return you are missing the blessing. You need to give without expecting anything back. You need to give without keeping score. You give because you want to. You don’t need thanks. You want to give. Here is a personal story.

I gave someone money for groceries once.  A few hundred dollars. It was a gift or a loan. I wasn’t sure how I wanted to treat it. I knew they needed a helping hand and I could help out. Well, later the people didn’t even remember what I had done. Details don’t matter.

Blessed Are Those Who Give Without Remembering – Give Freely

Suffice to say it is all good. They didn’t remember and never said thanks. I didn’t want to point it out. I hoped they’d remember. They didn’t. I started getting bugged by it. Get it? My good deed actually had a lot of strings attached. Still, I never reminded them.

That wasn’t the point. The point was I was trying to be a good guy but I also had a bunch of unconscious conditions attached. When the conditions weren’t met I began to feel resentful. What does resent have to do with generously giving? Get it? It was my issue not theirs.

That kind of giving may be better than not giving at all but it isn’t in the spirit of letting go and giving simply to give. Once you give, you give! You don’t set conditions or terms on it. You don’t take it back You let them do what they want with it. Don’t decided for them.

What Goes Around Comes Around – Give Without Conditions

My parents often had conditions. They’d say, ‘we’re going to gave you this but we don’t want you to spend it or to touch it.’ Or.  ‘you can only use it for this’; their particular reason. I hated that. I liked receiving it but felt obligated in ways I didn’t want to be obligated.

When you give simply to give, with no expectations or strings, you are truly blessed. Don’t look for the blessing. Give and let go. That is the trick. It is as tricky as enlightenment. Seek enlightenment with everything you have but if you want enlightenment it eludes you.

It only comes when you ultimately give up seeking it. This is true of many things. Let love go and you find it. When you don’t have needs you are rich. When you have needs you can’t seem to make ends meet. If you give to get you get nothing much back at all.

You Get Back What You Put Out – Celebrate And Enjoy

If you are happy with who you are and what you have your life can be truly incredible. Plus, you get more! It is an amazing paradox but one that affects us all. Let go. Give freely and you end up getting more back. Be delighted! Celebrate everything!”

“You want to feel inspired? Would you like to feel more motivated? What can you do to get your dreams easier and more quickly? How can you unleash your own power to go after the career, the love, the life that you want? What is something you can do right now?

The answer is easy and simple. Inspire someone else. Use your words, your feelings and you actions to inspire someone who needs it. Use your words, feelings and actions to motivate someone who feels unmotivated. Put your power and presence into action.

Don’t wait for the right time. Begin sharing what you know today. Begin sharing what you feel from your heart. Help someone else get ahead. It is one of the quickest ways to learn what you need to know. It is one of the fastest ways to move yourself forward, too.

Help Others Achieve Their Dreams And You Will Achieve Yours

When you give of yourself, to help another person in need, you use your personal resources, your knowledge and your experience, your thoughts, words, feelings and actions to come to their aid. You use everything you know and everything you are learning.

You apply all of this to assisting a person in need. You share lovingly, you instruct, you question, you understand and you lead them gently. You might use some tough love and some loving kindness. Everything you use for another you could benefit from yourself.

Because you are helping another it is easier to ‘get’ what you need to do. Your helping them will help you. You will learn much from sharing with them. You will become aware of so many things. You may hear reasons or excuses, complaints or blames and answer those.

We Rise By Lifting Others – Be The Reason Someone Smiles Today

Many may be the same you have in other circumstances. After all, as people we are far more similar, most of the time, than we are actually different. Teaching is one of the best ways to learn what you need to learn. Don’t ‘act like a teacher’ simply share what you know.

Sharing is wonderful. There is no stress or burden if you ask, ‘mind if I share with you something I have recently learned?’ If they answer ‘yes’ they have given your permission to share. Don’t abuse their permission, share, let them decide to do with what you offer.

If they reject it, that is what they do. You still shared. You still had the experience. Whether they understand today or tomorrow isn’t your concern, your part is sharing. You plant a seed then the universe decides if it grows. Allow them latitude to agree or disagree. Let go.

Power Is The Ability To Do Good Things For Others

Simply share. Let them accept or reject. JUST share. When done, you are done. The value for you is in what you did. The value for you is you helped another. You sought to use what you knew to inspire and motivate. You attempted to help another person feel better.

How else might it benefit you. You did something kind for someone. They may reciprocate in the future when you need some uplifting. They may reciprocate in other ways as well. Let them decide whether they respond in this way or not. You didn’t do it for reward.

You did it because you wanted to help another person. You did it because you know by sharing and helping it helps you to learn the lessons you need to know better. It really does. You can be your own best teacher by helping many others one by one. It truly works!

By Learning You Will Teach – By Teaching You Will Learn

Delight in sharing. Have fun. Allow yourself to be great at it or to suck at it. It doesn’t matter when your heart is in the right place. Allow yourself to appreciate the difficulty the other person may have. Appreciate their difficulty in possibly accepting your help.

Appreciate every aspect of this process. Don’t judge. Do not label. Let go of all assumptions and be open to discovering many knew learnings. Be gentle and lead from the heart. It is about connection and trust. It is about well-being and compassion.

It IS about relationship. It is about nurturing and encouraging. Everything about this process can be a blessing. Enjoy it. Delight in it. Let go, allow, and accept. Be free to give and to receive. Stay open and Be sure to celebrate everything!” Rex Sikes
