The Lady of the Gift: Generosity, receiving, withholding

Ally: The Lady of the Gift brings a message of tithing. To be your Ally, she requires you to look at the nature and method of your giving to others. The world is your church, and you only need to distribute 10 percent of your wealth to others to ensure that the flow continues.

Yet, this does not necessarily mean giving money away, nor does it imply a direct action of charity, even though the tradition of tithing is material. In fact, the kind of tithing the Lady asks of you is not tangible or material as all. She is asking you to look at all human beings as important in the Divine scheme of things and show others that you believe in them.

Pay attention to how you treat people, and be mindful of your perception, even of seemingly  “poor” strangers. If you see others as successful and abundant, and act as if you believe they have value, blessings all around are assured. Your belief in others has greater value than you could fathom. This alone guarantees your success long term. Remember that you can only keep what you are willing to give.”*

Abundance is knowing that there is always enough to go around. It’s sharing the joy, wealth, and wisdom available to all of us if we learn to see it. That means sharing not only with those you deem worthy, but consciously removing judgements and seeing everyone as equally valuable and connected. Pouring love out to the world will bring love back to you and tithing love is essential. When we can help others find their strength and their voice, we can empower them with love and help them to do the same for others.

Imagine a world where no one felt alone, where the barriers of acceptance were obliterated and no one fell between the cracks. Imagine if, by seeing the best in everyone, those compelled to act harshly out of spite or revenge, or commit unnecessary crimes would be able to see the beauty in themselves, who could learn to accept themselves and their own possibilities.

Bad behaviours are often passed down from generation to generation, a violent father producing an abusive son. Could a bright light in that person’s life change that? Someone seeing them as a soul with all the potential that everyone in the universe has available to them? It has to be better than segregation, of labels and low expectations. What would it really take to attain peace? I believe that acceptance is one of the main ingredients.

How about trying it yourself? Your very own random acts of kindness. An open smile, a word of encouragement, stopping yourself when you want to lash out or act in judgement of another? Give it a try and see what comes back to you, it can only be good!
