When we try to experience the frequency referred to as gratitude, we're told to be thankful for the roof over our heads, the food in our fridge, the clothes on our back, etc. — which is, no doubt, a great practice and a good place to start when we're trying to raise our vibration.
5 Senses to Boost Your Gratitude
I was watching a movie the other day about a guy with severe impaired eyesight (as in saw only blobs of shapes and colour). It really got me to see gratitude from a different perspective.
Yeah, I know most of us say we're truly grateful for everything in our lives — but do we really get how lucky we are?
We have 5 incredible senses that gift us with pleasure, delight and beauty every day! Even one of these senses is a huge blessing. Just try to:
- Imagine not being able to see — we take so much for-granted it's insane.
- Imagine not ever hearing music again.
- Imagine not being able to taste chocolate. Read related article: Giving Life Meaning Through Cake
- Imagine not being able to experience the luxury of a nice hot bath or…no, let's keep this clean ;).
- Imagine not being able to smell the sweet aroma of jasmine or coffee brewing.
Now, if you do have all (or most of) these senses available to you daily…which I'm guessing you do — you have incredible divine gifts to experience this third dimensional reality with. Read related article: Conquering Blocks Leads to Bold Brave Living
Gratitude is right there — immense gratitude. The sheer value of these senses boggles the mind. If you're having a hard time trying to align with heart-felt gratitude, try meditating on all of your senses and how much pleasure they give you on a daily basis.
I'll guarantee you're going to literally see life in a totally different way — through a heart full of gratitude for what has always been there.
