A wonderful blog post to follow up the energies of Archangel Gabriel.
Gratitude is something we should all have no matter what we experience in our daily lives.
My Dad would daily tell us what he was grateful for, including the fact that he had both Mum and I. I was brought up to be grateful for everything I had and I recall knowing that some people wasn't as fortunate as I was, but I didn't pity them, as I knew pity was a lower energy and they needed to be on the recieving end of something positive. So I always made sure I felt Love for them. Love that didnt divide us, or separate us but that joined us together as one. Dad called this my *heart of gold*. Mum would reguarly purchase gold heart pins to put on our clothes and the money went to the Heart Foundation. We still have them.
With the highly popular teachings of *The Secret* by Rhonda Byrne being very well known, the teachings of the importance of gratitude is something most of us are very aware of.
We are told that by expressing our gratitude for the things we do have in our life we attract more things that we would be grateful for. This is what they call the law of attraction.
We're also taught that if we express gratitude for the things we do want but don't have at the moment, we can use the law of attraction to bring them into our lives.
Saying *Thank You* daily for the things you are grateful for is a powerful way to ensure happiness within your life. There are many ways in which we can do this. Here are some that I have found empowering;
Thank you for.... the home I live in.
Thank you.... for the love, and respect I give and recieve to and from my parents.
Thank you.... for my perfect health.
Thank you.... for the clean water I drink daily.
I am truly grateful for the positive people in my life.
I am truly grateful for the opportunites that present themselves to me daily.
I am truly grateful for the ability to see, hear, taste, smell and touch.
I am truly grateful for the books I am able to purchase and read.
I have even used the method of finding a rock in nature that felt right to me and decorated it as my *Gratitude Rock*. I was inspired by the picture at the top of this blog post that I found on Google Images when searching about gratitude.
I make sure I hold my gratitude rock daily whilst im brushing my teeth or waiting for the kettle to boil, or simply sitting resting and recite within myself to the universe all my gratitude. At first it felt wierd, but now it feels wonderfully liberating.
For manifesting my desires, I express gratitude for them in a different way. You can use the same above methods, but personally (and we are ALL different), I feel like I'm telling myself fibs. So I found a new method that helps me feel and think positive as I remain true to myself. I do this;
I am in the process of creating the perfect home to live in.
I am in the process of creating my perfect country cottage garden.
I am in the process of attracting more and more wonderful people into my life whom want the best for me.
I am in the process of being the healthiest I can ever be.
I am in the process of achieving my dreams.
Here I am not fooling myself or telling fibs to myself as I recite my affirmations. I am simply affirming the truth, that I AM in the process of creating a wonderful life.
What works for you?
