Pleasure to the self, can certainly create wealth. Not just monetary wealth, but wealth in all forms. Some of us are used to being givers and some of us are receivers and that is just how we are wired or programed to be from upbringing. There has to be a balance between the giving and the taking or it can throw us off kilter. The givers are used to giving, giving and giving until they feel they have been taken advantage of, creating displeasure. The receivers, are used to receiving so much and don’t give much energy back to others creating a very entitled feeling. Its ok if this sounds like you, balance is the key. The unbalance can eventually create displeasure when things don’t always go their way.
How do the givers create more pleasure? The givers need to give back to themselves and not hold guilt. It is very common that givers can’t receive themselves. When we give ourselves pleasurable things we desire, it creates that proper balance. It can be very hard to do sometimes at first, especially if you are not used to doing things for yourself or others doing enough nice things for you. Go for a walk for 30 minutes around the block, go to a park, be in nature, do some yoga, go to the gym, go dancing, have some ice cream or a special dessert even if it is a few bites. You can also allow others to do things for you. When you are feeling down and out it can be extra hard to accept help. Go on a play date with someone. Allow or ask others to take your kids for a couple of hours, especially if you are feeling depleted. Use that time to take a bath, read your favorite book, go shopping, get a massage, anything that gives you a little pleasure. Take a short 2 day staycation and enjoy nature and some alone time or with a friend. Go to the movies by yourself. Just take some time for yourself and do something that makes you happy. This will raise your vibration and help to alkaline your body and help to heal it. This will then create more positive energy for you to do more things that make you happy.
For the receivers, it is great to start practicing the Pay-It-Forward method. The Pay-It-Forward movement, has been one of the coolest concepts to help shift the vibration of the planet. If everyone could have the ghosts from the old story Scrooge come to visit to help jolt people out of their funk would be awesome. But it’s not too often we get a jolt to wake us up in time, we have to take responsibility to do it ourselves. Ways to help give to others can be by doing some volunteer work at a non-profit place, give someone an extra big tip for doing something nice for you or for others. You can leave an old wallet out somewhere with a $10 or $20 bill in it with a note asking them to Pay-It-Forward to someone else when they can. Help a neighbor or friend with a project they are dreading and make it fun. Open a door for someone or help someone with groceries to their car. Pay for someone behind you in line when getting food or at the movies or an event. Go to a store that has lay-a-way and pay off someone’s remaining bill or put a few dollars towards it. Play hooky from work or school with your kids and take them somewhere fun. Paint a plain ole rock and make it pretty and leave it for someone to see. Write an inspirational message somewhere and stick it on a help wanted board. Any of these little things can help raise your energy up and the raise the vibration of others around you creating a beautiful ripple effect around the planet.
All these sweet little ideas for the givers and receivers can help create that perfect balance that we can be lacking. Remember, when we create more pleasure for ourselves and those around us, it creates a healthier digestion. Our digestion rules the body and mind which can create an unlimited amount of wealth when it is full of pleasure.
