The Power of Giving Back

givingbackWell need to give back, it doesn’t matter how we do it as long as we find ways to incorporate the action into our lives. When we give back, we are creating an energetic force that wraps itself around us and flows from one person to the next.

When we give back, five things will happen:

  1. You will realize you’re not alone
  2. You will be giving back to yourself, because we are part of the collective.
  3. We empower others to give back; it’s like a domino affect.
  4. You increase your vibration of goodness around your own personal feeling.
  5. When you give back, you up level your ability to receive blessings.

On The Shift Radio this week, we had a wonderful guest who harnesses her creative ability to give those who are suffering form breast cancer a voice. Liliana Komorowska recently directed the documentary entitled, Beauty & The Breast that follows nine women throughout their experience with breast cancer. The movie connected so many underlying themes, addressed many different important issues and raised awareness of breast cancer throughout an array of communities.

The movie did a phenomenal job of connecting with multicultural women and let them know that they are not alone. We learned that there can be laughter and peace in a time of struggle and hardship all the while learning not to be afraid and take the plunge to be happy—there was even some skydiving in there. But skydiving was a little too much for me. Like my friend Rob Gallo said, “why would you jump out of a perfectly good airplane?”

The film brought breast cancer awareness not only to women but to men as well, because we know that both men and women can be affected by breast cancer. Men are contracting this disease and it affects many people around the world and we should all know about it.
