In studying Universal Laws of Abundance, it is vital to take care to not neglect the health and wellness aspect of the law. When individuals choose to study Divine Laws such as, the Law of Giving, the Law Attraction, the Law of Abundance, an eagerness to see the manifestation of the material aspect of wealth is usually the driving force.
