Question: When was the last time you thanked God or the Universe or a higher power of any sort for the blessings in your life? I'm not judging, I'm just asking. Because it's truly something to think about.
If you said, "Errrrmmm, I dunno . . ." you're not the only one. I'm sure of it.
And I get it.
Because, sometimes, in the face of adversity, life changes, questioning, or sadness, it can be hard to remember just how many good things are swirling around in your life at any given moment. Small things like hot coffee and warm blankies. Huge things like a working car and supportive friends. And everything in between.
But having (and expressing) a genuine appreciation for the wonderful things in your life is an extremely high-vibrational activity. It turns your focus away from lack (what you don't have or don't want) and redirects it toward abundance (what you do have or will have). It centers you, and is, by default, very uplifting.
Gratitude also aids in the swiftness of manifestation. Want more good things? Be grateful for the ones you already have and watch even more good stuff enter your life with ease.
Remember, it's okay to want more--there is unlimited abundance in the universe and you can have everything you want. But be sure that, as you collect more and more great things and experiences, you're giving thanks along the way.
An attitude of gratitude will get you EVERYWHERE.
If expressing gratitude is not yet part of your daily routine, why not start now? Think of one thing you're thankful for today, large or small. Hold your hands up to your heart, aim your eyes upward (or close them), and thank God or your higher power for your blessing. Then feel how happy that blessing makes you. Feeling is a very important component of this practice. Feeling into something changes your vibration and sends that vibration out for the Universe to match. When The U feels how grateful you are for your blessing, it will boomerang that back to you by sending more things to be thankful for. Cool, huh?
The more you practice, the easier it gets. And the more likely you are to do this on the daily. Do it in the morning or at night before you drift off to sleep. There wheres, whens, and hows don't really matter. But the actions? They do!
So . . . tell me! What are you grateful for today? Share in the comments below. I'd love to hear it!
