"Gratitude" is a magical ingredient for life. It not only lifts my spirits, but it has also totally turned around some difficult situations and brought forth miraculous outcomes.
Whenever things are not going the way I would like them to, or when external circumstances are having an impact on my positive energy and thoughts, I have always used gratitude to lift me up and get my thoughts back on track. By choosing to focus on everything I have instead of on the things I do not have, I automatically begin to feel better. I also attract a lot more reasons to keep feeling good. The more I am grateful, the more the Divine Life Source sends me reasons to be grateful.
Whenever I feel down and out, I sit in my favourite meditation chair with a pad and pencil. I begin with meditation and then I centre myself, by going within and connecting with the loving Source. Then, I write down everything I am grateful for, for example, a loving husband and family members, the beautiful home that we live in, my health ( physical, mental, and spiritual), my great friends, and the clients I have the honour and privilege to serve.
There are so many things we take for granted in our lives, such as indoor plumbing and toilets and the abundance of food that is available to us every day. I have vacationed in several different Caribbean Islands, and I've seen how people live outside the five-star tourist resorts. Many human beings do not even have the basics that we take for granted and that, most of the time, we are not even aware of.
Sleeping in a warm, comfortable bed, in a peaceful and secure country is a great blessing. Walking on the street in my neighbourhood without worrying that a bomb will go off is a blessing. Other tremendously valuable blessings for which I am truly grateful, include being free as a woman to walk with my face uncovered, to wear what I chose, having the right to be anything I want to be, and not having to hide my beliefs and convictions for fear of being judged or reprimanded.
When you become aware of everything in your life you can be grateful for, the dark gloomy clouds lift, and light appears. You experience hope, gratitude, and faith that there are many more wonderful blessings to come.
Give this very powerful spirit of gratitude a try right now. Make a list of at least twelve things you are grateful for. Write down the names of the people in your life for whom you are grateful. Once you have identified them, call, or write a note to each one. Acknowledge them for the difference they make in your life, for what they represent to you, and for the honour and privilege of being part of their lives.
Dot it now. Do not procrastinate. Get into action now and see how your energy shifts. Pay attention to how you feel while doing this exercise. This secret ingredient is always available to you. Use it as soon as you do not feel good and watch how it changes your energy and vibration.
