Investment implies a return. Typically, we think of it in terms of money, but it can be expanded to include, time, attention, and energy.
Unlike spending, investing has expansive implications. What is spent is spent – gone – used up. If we shift our consciousness from spending to investing, we see things differently and we are conscious of the implied benefit. For example, lets say I spent some time doing this or that or I spent time with so and so – done – that is the synopsis of that particular event. But something occurred during that time. Something positive or possibly negative but that thing that occurred has an effect. Every encounter has something for us. Whether it is with a person or our laundry.
If we change our thought to investing, we are automatically in a place to experience a benefit because we are expecting it. It is an interesting thing to consider and it allows us to see the mundane things in life in a different light.
If you are investing rather than spending your money at, say, the grocery store think of how many people it affects in a positive way. It helps to keep the place open, gives jobs to the people that work there, keeps the suppliers and producers going and it gives nourishment to you and your family.
It is far more enjoyable to think of how your shopping is supporting others rather than the prices of groceries. It is expansive and it gives value to the everyday things we do.
Investment can play an important role in the process of manifesting an intention. Think of it this way, manifesting your heart’s desire is never just for you. It makes you an example that will empower others.
Add that element when you are working with your imagination and feeling yourself in your desired end result. See yourself thriving and then go further to see how it will positively impact others. If you have more money you can do more things, support more businesses by purchasing from them and support worthwhile causes.
If you are happy and thriving, you are an inspiration to every person you encounter. If you are healthy you are an example of wholeness and vitality. All these things, and anything that you can think of that expands you, that enables you to do more, have more and be more benefits the whole.
