Today I will gratefully receive all the gifts that life has to offer me.
Wherever I go, and whomever I encounter, I will bring them a gift. The gift may be a compliment, a flower, or a prayer. Today, I will give something to everyone I come into contact with, and so I will begin the process of circulating joy, wealth and affluence in my life and in the lives of others.
Today I will gratefully receive all the gifts that life has to offer me. I will receive the gifts of nature: sunlight and the sound of birds singing, or spring showers or the first snow of winter. I will also be open to receiving from others, whether it be in the form of a material gift, money, a compliment or a prayer.
I will make a commitment to keep wealth circulating in my life by giving and receiving life’s most precious gifts: the gifts of caring, affection, appreciation and love. Each time I meet someone, I will silently wish them happiness, joy and laughter.
Whatever we give, whether it's love, time, talent or dollars, circulates back to us. As scripture says, "As you sow, so shall you reap." When we sow seeds of gratitude and joy, we take a percentage of all the good that comes to us and bestow it on the universe and we harvest a life of abundance, touching and transforming every aspect of our lives."
