What was the last time you said ‘THANK YOU!’ and really felt the gratitude tingles throughout your body? Here is an interesting theory about gratitude. The universe always matches your vibration; so if you are in the gratitude vibration, the Universe is going to reward you with more of what you are grateful for. Universe doesn’t differentiate between good or bad, it reacts to the feeling and intention behind your thoughts and words. So be mindful of what you wish for, as it AMPLIFIES.
If you really pay attention, you will notice that what you have today, or the situation you are in today or 6 months ago is all a result of what you wished for yourself. And if you are having a hard time seeing this now, stay tuned and you will see that everything is the result of your own thoughts and intentions. If you keep victim mentality, and keep wining to everyone that your life is miserable and there is nothing positive about it; well, guess what, you are never going to see anything positive around you. While if you are grateful even in the darkest days, believing and keeping faith, that whatever is happening now is not going to last forever, and it is there to teach you something or to make you grow in some way, and TRUST in the divine flow of life, which maybe your mind can’t wrap itself around right now, then guess what… you will eventually see the LIGHT.
Every time you wish for something or ask the Universe / God to bring something to you, you put out a vibration of lack and scarcity. This means, that the Universe is now going to have to shift things around, put you through a series of experiences so you can grow into a harmonious vibration of what you asked for. This takes TIME and if you are constantly asking for something you don’t have, the process becomes never-ending and you never find yourself at peace. Instead you end up in ever-chasing mode. Try staying grateful for what’s in front of you and feel the realities WITHIN. This way you can MANIFEST your dreams and not chase them. So when people argue about whether or not their cup is half full or half empty, be the person who is grateful to just HAVE A CUP!
Gratitude does not necessarily mean that you get excited at whatever occurs in your life. It is rather an awareness of what’s in front of you, it is your willingness to allow flow to come into your life, without blocking or delaying the process / lesson whether the opportunity comes from fortune or misfortune.
Here are some gratitude tips to help you stay balanced:
- Practice awareness of what’s happening in your everyday physical reality. We spend so much time in our head listening to our Monkey Mind, which cannot stop chatting about past or future, that we don’t allow enough time to see what is here in the present. As Hellen Mellicost puts it, when we live in the present moment, life is not hard.
- Always welcome the lessons. It is very difficult at times, when things seem very negative, dark clouds hovering over your head seem very dense and it is hard to see the beams of sunshine that are trying to get through them. When you find out you got laid off, it seems more like doors are closing rather than opening. It feels horrible, and it would be useless for someone to tell you, “Oh, but you will learn so much from this! Be grateful!” Stay focused, stay grateful and have faith. Everything is in divine order.
- Let go of expectations and the need to control outcomes. Embrace the fact that nothing in your life has ever happened exactly as you planned for it, and nothing will probably ever happen that way. So set a goal, have faith and let life take you there on its waves.
- Make a list of all the things you are grateful for…but make sure you really FEEL each incident, item, feeling, person and don’t just write a long list of stuff. Each day add at least 3 things that make you FEEL grateful. This is a powerful practice of training the mind to seek the positive in each and every situation. Don’t underestimate its simplicity.
So let go of everything that is holding you back and watch the miracles unfold in your life… ✨✨✨
“Anything that annoys you is teaching you patience.
Anyone who abandons you is teaching you how to stand up on your own two feet.
Anything that angers you is teaching you forgiveness and compassion.
Anything that has power over you is for teaching you how to take your power back.
Anything you hate is teaching you unconditional love.
Anything you fear is teaching you courage to overcome your fear.
Anything you can’t control is teaching you how to let go and trust the Universe” ― Jackson Kiddard
Yours in gratitude,
