Chapter 2

The Law of Giving

(Also could be called the Law of Giving and Receiving)

Reflection Points:

  •  “Your body and your mind and the universe are in constant and dynamic exchange, stopping the circulation of energy is like stopping the flow of blood” (p.28)
  • “If we stop the circulation of money – if our only intention is to hold on to our money and hoard it – since it is life energy, we will stop its circulation back into our lives as we” (p.28-9)
  • How to start the process of circulation – “Make a decision that any time you come into contact with anyone, you will give them something” (p.32)


  1.  What are you putting in to circulation in your life? Where do you stop the “flow”?
  2. When you meet someone, are you judging (reflect on law 1) or are you offering a gift? What is something you could offer/give people in your life? How can you give them a gift?
  3. Why are we seeing the word “consciousness” in law 2?


  1. I have started to give a compliment to everyone I come in contact with.
  2. This is one I need to work on, I need to be better about receiving. I mess up the “flow” if I don’t receive. I have alot of people offering me help with things and I don’t take them up on it because I don’t want to be “needy” or I my independent mindset takes over…”you can do this alone, don’t risk your pride”. All I’m doing in that is messing up the flow. I need to be more “open to receiving from others”.
  3. I’m working to remember to wish someone “happiness, joy and laughter” when I first meeting them, including the barista at Starbucks!
