GRATITUDE: A Vital Catalyst to Bring Positive Change into Your Life


Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “If you are not grateful with what you have, how do you expect to be grateful with more?”  There’s a lot of substance to this statement because it puts into perspective the fact that we don’t always appreciate the things we have in our lives; how big or how small until maybe something happens that causes us to stop in our tracks, shift our perception, change our viewpoint, or re-adjust our lens.

Whether it’s work, school, kids, hobbies, etc. most of us are also distracted a good amount of the time and caught up in our daily lives, and we don’t always take the time to really show appreciation for everything we have in our lives. But an amazing thing happens when you consciously choose to give thanks. When you take even a moment of your day, every single day to show appreciation for even a single breath; even by simply acknowledging it, you are tuning into a frequency that is magnetic to even more abundance.

What is it about gratitude that magnifies the frequency of abundance around you? Well, for starters when you feel gratitude and thanks, you are literally emanating an energy that is vibrating peace, safety, trust, connection, and love with the Universe. This, in itself calls for more of the same and thus opens cosmic doors to allow even more things for you to be grateful for to come into your life.

When you are grateful, you are coming from your Heart-Space which resonates with the frequency of love. Therefore, when you feel you are struggling to make ends meet or you feel you are lacking in your life, instead of allowing yourself to be consumed with fear and separation and a feeling of having no idea how things will ever work out and come together (lack of faith and trust in the Universe), as hard as it may be, in your darkest hour instead consciously shift your thoughts over to the belief that it WILL work out. Don’t worry about the HOW, just focus on the KNOWING and let the Universe do the rest.

When you can at least get yourself into this creative, loving space you are consciously raising your vibration and giving yourself the greatest chance to manifest positive change, because you are no longer coming from fear. When you feel thankful and are in gratitude, it is IMPOSSIBLE to feel fear at the same time.

I am a firm believer that your level of action on helping heal your soul wounds and how fast you are to take that action is equivalent to the amount of self-love you feel. For years, I’d allow myself to be drawn into abusive relationships that did nothing but reflect back to me insecurities I refused to look at for such a long time. But once I realized that in order for anyone else to ever be able to love me the way I needed to be loved, I needed to first learn how to love myself.

So, do a little experiment next time you are feeling disconnected from the world or perhaps like nothing ever goes your way or that your life is just horrible all around. See how quickly you can consciously shift your energy, your focus, and your vibration. And then remember these words…There is ALWAYS something to be grateful for. And that realization in itself is the catalyst for drawing positive change into your life. You just need to know in your heart that you are deserving of love, and the moment you believe it with your whole heart, your life will never be the same. There will remain an ember of gratitude that will forever burn in your soul. You will be forever changed and your heart will overflow with loving thanks.

The Universe will answer promptly with only more to be thankful for. What a fantastic system. 🙂

  5.' Tripathi Sk says:

    It give most correct explanation of many prophecies of Nostradamus like great Indian Leader , Burning of Rome & Anti Christ – Most fascinating story of reincarnation which must be in limelight & widely discussed for drawing its benefit to world – The biggest problem facing the modern world is uncontrolled materialism and blind consumerism. It is the root cause of many other problems like environmental pollution & climate change. These problems of modern world are so huge that it looks like only God can solve these problems and solution needs intervention from God. God is indeed trying to intervene and save the humanity from the problems of uncontrolled materialism, blind consumerism, environmental pollution and climate change and also guide humanity towards divinity. But people need to listen and understand how God is trying to intervene and giving solutions to problems facing whole humanity and also need to collaborate on given guidance from God. Please read the real and true story of reincarnation of Vivekananda , to understand how God is trying to solve the biggest problems facing the world also I request people to collaborate with me if convinced with what I am saying.Humanity has evolved to very high level of evolution however we need to act collectively & responsibly for carrying it further & benefit of all
