The Power of Gratitude

The more you give thanks, the more the universe gives you to thank.

If you want more of anything in your life then give thanks for what you already have now. This shifts you into an energy of abundance which opens you to being receptive.

It’s not simply that what you think about comes about, but what you THANK about comes about.

So often we aren’t grateful for what we do have.

It’s really so simple.

Yet why do we not practice gratitude more?

What I noticed personally was that my lack of gratitude is the ego’s tactic to feel important, maintain control, and feel like it’s in charge. My lack of gratitude keeps me separate from life.

Authentic gratitude requires that you surrender your ego to whatever it is that you acknowledge. In doing so, you let go of the illusion of separation. When you are grateful to life, a person or a thing, you are acknowledging its impact on you and that you aren’t doing it all by yourself.

Life is a process. A process that began long before you or I were in this human form. We do not exist in isolation and separate from all the other aspects of life. You and I are the product of the totality of existence itself.

You are here in this moment because of your ancestors, your parents, your mentors, your friends, the galaxies that came before you and so much more.

At any time you feel disconnected or discouraged, take a moment to breathe and really feel how much LIFE itself is loving you.

The universe loves you profoundly and is pouring it’s love into you each second. Every breath you take is living proof of the love of life expressing through you. All of the millions of intricate processes that have to happen in each moment for you to simply be alive is profoundly humbling and awe inspiring proof of Life’s love of YOU!

Each day the sun rises and blesses you for free. The moon shines it’s smile upon you. Millions of cells communicate inside your body in healthy harmony. People, some whom you will never meet, impact and support you in so many ways that you will never ever know of!

Breathe. Simply allow yourself to feel the gratitude for this very moment you are living.

We often want our lives to be different, we want more of what we do not have which only leads to misery.

We have a tendency to only give thanks when we get the things that we want.

But what if every experience that happened to you, even the most challenging ones were serving your soul’s highest growth and evolution?

So don’t just give thanks when things go well, but even when they don’t. The challenges you face are making you stronger and inviting you to become the person you are meant to be.

Don’t just give thanks to those you like and love but also those that challenge you the most, since they also invite you to step up and practice your loving.

So what are you focusing on each day?

What you focus on expands.

Life owes you nothing. Life has given each of us so much. It’s given you everything – YOU. Now it’s up to you to step up and fulfill the potential of your soul. Life has given us the amazing privilege of being alive. Each day is a true gift that we get to experience, not something to take for granted or feel entitled to.

Take a moment, look around and reflect on your life. Reflect on everything you are grateful for, whether it’s – Being alive. Your parents. Your job. Your friends. Your children. Your pet. Your body. Etc. And passionately express your gratitude out loud for each. Bless them all.

Real abundance is about how you feel about what you have and who you are, not just about what you have.

Real abundance isn’t about how much money is in your bank account but how you FEEL about the money that you have.

And FEELING precedes anything manifesting in the world.

Saying “Thank you” consistently is the key to unlock your heart and your dreams.

Living in a state of “Thank you” is the key to being happy no matter what.

When you depend on life to be a certain way in order to be happy, you are a slave. When you find what you are grateful for in any given situation, you are free.

You hold the lock and you hold the key.

So no matter what, let your daily mantra be:

Thank you!

Thank you!!

Thank you!!!
