What goes with gratitude? Giving
Giving – A.K.A. Law of Circulation – Law of Tenfold
Think of the law of circulation like a pond. If water only flows in, it stagnates and can’t support life. If water only flows out, the pond dries out and can’t support life.
Water needs to flow in and out of the pond to support life.
The law of circulation works the same way. When you circulate money freely, more money flows into your life.
Law of Circulation operates under several components: Release, Seeding & Receiving.
Law of Circulation & Releasing
Everything I did, all my current actions up to this point supported my old money beliefs. All my habits and behaviors concerning money were based on my old money beliefs. My subconscious did all it could to "protect" from money.
I acted like a lunatic when it came to finances. I even put physical barriers in my office to keep money out. There was at least 5 banker boxes filled with bills, bank statements, business projects etc.
In the past I would go through the boxes and clean them out but would never completely get rid of the them. There would always be at least one left for me to do "later." Those boxes allowed me to stay in denial about my financial situation. Those banker banks represented a physical barrier to keep money away.
Obviously some changes needed to happen. To support my new relationship with money, would require new actions and habits. The first habits to make room for money was face those boxes and begin to get rid of clutter and chaos.
Removing clutter and giving away things you no longer use or want will create a vacuum. Nature abhors a vacuum and fill up the space created by giving things away.
In order to increase what you have, you must let go of what you think you need to hold onto. Developing an attitude of gratitude will lead to a giving mindset.
Law of Circulation & Seeding
The seed money principal is based from the law of circulation and the law of tenfold. Planting money seeds aid in developing a grateful mindset. It assists and reminds you that everything comes from God/Universe.
When you trust God will provide for all your needs and everything comes from Him, you can release. Holding onto things you don’t need translates into holding onto a mentality of lack.
I’m a firm believer in God, but you can use Universe, Higher Power or whatever term makes you feel comfortable. There were years during my recovery of abuse that I got rid of "God" and used a sphere a light instead.
Giving back to God is part of the seed money principal, often called tithing.
You honor God and put him first by giving back 10% of what you receive for your income. This action reminds you that everything you have comes from Him. It keeps you connected to the source of all. It’s a wonderful way to protect you financially, emotionally, spiritually and physically.
I learned tithing is different from giving. Tithing is a dedicated percentage given to where you receive spiritual guidance. This act increases the effectiveness of your tithe.
Law of Circulation & Receiving
Giving is the key to receiving. Tom Pauley, author of I Am Rich Beyond My Wildest Dreams, says tithing get you into the school of success. Giving freely sets you ahead of the class. I let my inner guide me where to give.
Giving and tithing creates a hole and you know how nature feels about that empty hole. The Universe is compelled to fill it up again.
Giving freely activates the Law of Tenfold Return… for every good you give, you receive a minimum tenfold return. Whatever you want more of… give it away.
You must be willing to receive. Many of us fall short on this area. Think about compliments. How gracious do you receive compliments? Make sure you’re willing to accept.
Don’t refuse gifts… when you refuse a gift, you stop the other person from receiving their tenfold. You may not always receive from the source you gave to; your tenfold return most likely will come from someone else.
Keep money flowing to you by becoming a gracious giver and a gracious receiver.

Good night Ann, i already knows about this subject, i use to give, i did stop doing the 10%, several reasons, i also recently was told about this matter from a co-worker, i know you are right, she is right, i really need to change my mind about this matters, and is not about being cheap, is about what i see people do with the money i give it really makes me upset giving money for a special thing and people do use the money for other purposes and bla bla bla,…. that’s why i basically stop giving the 10% but this co-worker along with my very best friend told me that what counts is how happy i do it, i really need to fix this issue within myself…
Ann Rusnak says
My Money Honey directed me to make God a partner in our finances. This is my approach… I wrote God a covenant say we would give a certain percentage from out take home amount and would increase it to 10% of gross when we reached a certain financial milestone. Also stipulated that any additional income/money to take home pay, we would give 10%. Now my tithing is different from giving. Tithing goes to where I receive spiritual growth. It’s not automated. While I grow spiritually, closer to God, I will continue to tithe to where this is happening.
It wasn’t until we reached a certain milestone in eliminating outstanding financial obligations, did we add giving/charity on a consistent basis. I check out the organizations that we choose to give. I also do impromptu giving… this can also include time, services, gifts, giving away items etc.
Follow what is in your heart… some people see no difference between tithing and giving. This is a personal issue and only you know the best way to use The Law of Circulation.
