In terms of money, you CANNOT TEST the magic of giving in order to receive. You must give with the intent to just give, with no strings or expectations in return.
Some people have found that by tithing money, whether to a church that they belong to or a religious group or other worthy cause, that cash will return to them as well. But it is a matter of FAITH, it is not a toy; they system cannot be manipulated in that way... that would be against the Law. (God's, not man's)
To give is to be like the Sun, like God.. you must do it because it FEELS right. You must give freely and with no strings attached, expecting nothing in return but the joy in giving. To give with strings attached is to short circuit the system, in essence it is giving from a place of feeling a LACK. If you feel LACK, you will manifest more LACK.
To give from a place of Abundance is to think that you have plenty, to feel Rich. Feeling RICH, will attract more RICHNESS. Now will that RICHNESS always be money? NO. But it will be a BLESSING.
Remember the old chestnut about counting your blessings? It is a statement, however quaint about the Law of Attraction.
And YES, you will find answers and spiritual Truth in music. Music is another language of Creativity... is that not what God is? Creation?!
The transliteration of the Hebrew 4 lettered name for God (Yod-Heh-Vav-Heh, often incorrectly pronounced as Jehova) basically means: THAT WHICH WAS, THAT WHICH IS and THAT WHICH WILL BE.
Here is a copy of The Pattern on The Trestleboard, a statement of Truth about the Self, based on the Teachings of Paul Foster Case:
0 All the Power that ever was or will be is here now.
1 I am a center of expression for the Primal-Will-To-Good which eternally creates and sustains the Universe.
2 Through me its unfailing Wisdom takes form in thought and word.
3 Filled with Understanding of its perfect Law, I am guided, moment by moment, along the path of liberation.
4 From the exhaustless riches of its Limitless Substance, I draw all things needful, both spiritual and material.
5 I recognize the manifestation of the Undeviating Justice in all the circumstances of my life.
6 In all things great and small, I see the Beauty of the Divine Expression.
7 Living from that Will, supported by its unfailing Wisdom and Understanding, mine is the Victorious Life.
8 I look forward with confidence to the perfect realization (manifestation) of the Eternal Splendor of the Limitless Light.
9 In thought and word and deed, I rest my life, from day to day, upon the sure Foundation of eternal Being.
10 The Kingdom of Spirit is embodied in my flesh.
These statements are profound in their depth of meaning. They are closely tied in to the teachings of Qabalah, and Numerology. Meditate on them, use them as affirmations on a daily basis... it will repay the effort. (in more ways than one)
