Generosity is faith.
These days, I give at least 10% of my monthly income away and I wanted to share my current favourites with you. (Also if you're taking Gala Darling's amazingamazing course Radical Rituals: Abundance and feel inspired to spread the moolah flow.)
I sorted them by category for fun but, really, any of these people/organizations could just be labelled under “creativity, power, connection, and compassion.”
I'd love to see any of them get more support out here.
Discovered recently, and loving their authenticity and artsiness. (Erotic)

Cute. Witchy. Cute.

Power and connection.
The Center for NonViolent Communication had projects all over for bringing peace and compassion to people who didn't even know they could feel it when communicating. Found after reading NonViolent Communication: A Language of Life.
Found in watching 13th. So important for living as a compassionate human.
Found via Chani Nicholas, one of my fave star-readers.
I heard about this project from one of the collaborators while I was at university. She was feeling so sad because she didn’t believe any big investors, or big corporations, would fund this project to completion anytime soon. A “pipe dream.”
I don’t want to believe that though. So, I donate, hope, and keep spreading the word hoping it’ll bring abundant minds, ears and cash balances to the solution.
I'm learning about abundance.
True abundance is all in the worldview.
(That's part of why Gala Darling's course (above) is so amazing, simple, life-changing.)
Trusting there's always good stuff coming your way, even as you're giving away your uber expensive backpack for $5 because it was a present from an ex and that's stale energy - even though you kinda need the cash right now.
Because coins and paper promises move like energy. Money is energy.
So when you make space for abundance, open the door, and let it flow right in without needing to know where/how/who/why/if/when...it floods right in.
This is a sweet surrender, intuitively active and gentle. But definitely it's not passively waiting for ample money, luscious food, beautiful shelter and the riches of your dreams to show up while you obsessively meditate on it.
While I do get joy and satisfaction from these monthly 10% donations, they really don't need my vulnerability or courage. Or even that much faith (even when I'm short on cash, I can usually trust that tithing is a beautiful idea).
A little courage, a little vulnerability and faith feels very generous. For example, telling one of your favourite people just how much they mean to you, which is one of my new monthly practices in addition to money donations.
I need all the courage though. Being so much in my feelings actually scares me. Maybe it's the intimacy fears or "they'll think it's all silly" fears. But this is something to grow into.
Because, generosity = joy.
Joy and gratitude = prosperity.
That's my math for life.
More things on abundance coming soon. That's where my heart's been lately. Thanks for reading.
