Living in a State of Gratitude
Are you living in a state of gratitude? There is power when you live in gratitude. The movie The Secret taught me some important things, first of all your thoughts become things. What you focus on that is what you will attract in your life.
Living in a state of gratitude means your thoughts should be on being grateful for the things you have NOW. By living in this state of being....the universal law of attraction says that we will attract into your life the things we focus and think about ....if your thoughts are on lack (negativity) you will attract that. But if your thoughts are on your many blessings than the universe says lets give more things for them to be grateful for......so remember GRATITUDE attracts what we want.
Another area that I've notice people having a hard time with is accepting a blessing from others.....remember when someone gives you a $20.00 bill it is the giver that shall receive a blessing. So many times I see people want to cut off the other persons blessing by not accepting the gift. If someone is touched to give you a gift. Don't reject it! Accept it with open arms and "feel" that gratitude in your heart. Say "THANK YOU" and mean it from the bottom of your heart. I guarantee you that the person that has given you that blessing will receive their own.
We forget that our attitude of GRATITUDE is what attract those blessings into your life. If you are affirming that you will receive abundance in your life. That is what you are manifesting/affirming...why are you than surprise when you receive it. Your job is not to know where it will come from ....your job is to feel the abundance and be GRATEFUL that it's manifested.
Here are my tips to help you live in a state of GRATITUDE:
1) Keep a Gratitude Journal - every day set some time aside to write down what you are grateful for today. Big or small, we all have several things each day we are blessed for.
2) Visual reminders - use post a notes around the house to trigger that feeling of gratitude. In your mirrors, on your
refrigerator, in your wallet. Write positive affirmations ex: I am thankful for all the food I have in my refrigerator. The list goes on.
3) Gratitude Partner - If you hang around with negativity people that is what you will "catch" make a conscious effort to hang around people that support a grateful lifestyle.
4)Change your Self-Talk - SO IMPORTANT to change your self-talk!! Research has shown that we can change our mood by changing the tone of the things we say to ourselves. Say positive, uplifting, grateful things to yourself. Start your day with this positive affirmation. Ex: I AM grateful for the many blessings coming my way today!
When we learn to master the art of living in a state of gratitude we will live a blessed, fulfilled, and awesome life.
