When Giving Doesn’t Help

“When you learn, Teach. When you get, Give” – Maya Angelou

Giving is love’s greatest poem.

To give means to offer your energy, kindness, protection, comfort, time, ideas, attention, resources, and more to benefit another person or cause.  To relinquish ourselves of these most valuable treasures is a beautiful sacrifice in which your needs and desires are placed behind something or someone else’s.

It’s a powerful tool that builds bridges from separation to ultimate unity. The connection that happens between giver and receiver breeds joy, contentment, and inspiration for all parties involved.

I always had the desire to help others in any way I could. When I learned how to apply the Progressive Mental Alignment technique, giving became much more meaningful and enjoyable. I cannot even express the immense difference between the results before and after Progressive Mental Alignment when it comes to health and relationship issues. The most unexpected surprise was the amazing impact it had on my own personal growth and health.

You can learn so much from helping others when you’re doing it in a meaningful and effective way! This is one of the most important reasons I started my blog. I wanted to share my experience with as many people as possible.

It was a long and hard road in self-discovery that cost me a lot of energy, money and disappointment. Now I’m able to pass the answers and solutions on to others, saving them all those unnecessary hardships. So many people can experience more happiness and success in life if they possess the right tools.

The Giver’s Light

Have you ever experienced the great energy of a giver at work? There is a certain light that follows them wherever they go.  Historical figures like Mother Teresa, Mahatma Gandhi, and Martin Luther King Jr. were famous for their purposeful giving. They inspired millions! But there are people in our own life who are just as impactful. They really are our life’s greatest heroes.

Who was the biggest giver in your life? Did they inspire you to give?

A friend told me: “As a child I was inspired by a teacher that went above and beyond for his students. He’d come in early to tutor students that were having trouble and stayed late to offer his advice and guidance. On weekends he appeared at sports events and at special family activities. For many, he was a father figure. He gave everything he had and in return was greatly loved and respected.” She told me that she will never forget his devotion.

That type of life is contagious and has the power to heal the world but it also has another more unexplored and often damaging impact.

If you’re a giver you recognize the type of impact your life can have on others…but could there also be a cost?

The Cost of Selflessness

While giving is a natural human act that gives us value and purpose, it can also drain us of the very energy we want to share with others.

You may be familiar with the feeling of having to pick up the phone when a friend calls or forcing yourself out of bed to attend an event that’s important to someone else. What are you neglecting in these moments? Maybe your home is disorganized or your kids are asking to spend more time with you. Perhaps you’ve missed out on events and hobbies that are particularly enjoyable and important to you.

This can make you feel like you’re being pulled from different directions and leave you feeling exhausted, guilty, and ultimately unhappy.

This type of giving can also affect your physical health and mental well-being in a huge way. If you recognize this feeling it may be a clue that a greater truth needs to be explored within you.

Ask yourself, why does giving feel like such an obligation sometimes? Why am I so exhausted all the time? Why am I often so consumed by guilt?

How can you give in a way that is impactful but also moves you to improve your own life?

Stop, Breath, and Love Yourself

The answer begins by realizing the importance of YOU! Healing yourself is the first and most important step to healing the world. It is your most important responsibility.

I’m inviting you to stop, breath, and love yourself enough to address the wounds within.

Unlock the secrets of your subconscious, reclaim your true power and identity, and experience pure joy.

I know I talk a lot about how Progressive Mental Alignment is life changing. It’s because I’ve been that person in need of help. I once thought there was no hope. I know all too well how terrible that feeling is and don’t want you feel that way any longer. Progressive Mental Alignment really does provide the tools that allow you to dig deep into the reasons behind your behaviors and feelings.

Learn more than you’ve ever learned about yourself and others.

Improve your life, and give with limitless energy.

If I can do it you can too!!

Learn how to change your life and help the ones you love the most transform!
