Gratitude as a Way of BeingBy Jafree Ozwald
www.EnlightenedBeings.com "If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, "thank you," that would suffice." ~Meister Eckhart Gratitude is one of the most powerful and transformational energies on the planet. Every time you are spontaneously grateful for how the Universe has blessed you, you send out a high vibrational energy that starts magnetizing even more abundance into your life! Whenever you are bathing in the energy of gratitude, you have a deep knowingness that you are abundant, and lack nothing at all. Yes, gratitude is a powerful vehicle that allows you to tap into your own abundance and infinite creative energy. You can not feel fear, scarcity, or doubt when you are full of gratitude. When you embrace gratitude as a way of being you naturally know the truth of your soul’s path and mission, and that you are already blessed with everything you need. From this place, you then become a massive magnet for attracting even more success, love, abundance and divine beings into your life. Take a few moments to simply imagine what your life would look like if you were constantly living from a place of gratitude. Embracing gratitude is like opening the door to a brilliant new world, one where the sun is always shining and you feel totally and amazingly alive all the time! When you live in a world of gratitude, you naturally feel the divine love and abundance that is always present inside you and all around you. Your heart is naturally brimming with gratitude for existence when your mind is not cluttered with ideas, opinions, and desires. The heart is always thankful and never controlled by the ego and all of its contracted thought patterns. Gratitude is our most natural highway to higher consciousness and not some strange thing that needs to be learned like juggling cantelopes. Take the time to become quiet and get in touch with the core of your heart. If you can dig beneath the shields, resistance, and wounding from the past, you will naturally feel a deep gratitude for everything pouring through you into the world. "God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?" ~William A. Ward Gratitude is one of the most empowering experiences we can access in life when directed toward yourself, others, and the world. If you have trouble staying in touch with your natural grateful connection, you have simply let your inner judge squash this flame of love. The fire is not dead by any means, it just needs a little stirring. Start by shedding that protective armor around your heart and opening your heart to this divine feeling of appreciating everything! Anytime that you are not feeling gratitude, you are simply focusing on what you don’t want or like about a situation. It’s that simple. Gratitude is always within your reach, it is just a question of your focus and of reigning in your mind. Any moment that your mind goes down the track of frustration or complaining, tell it to STOP immediately and switch it back to gratitude. It can be as easy as asking yourself, "What’s one thing that I am grateful for right now?" The good news is that there is always at least one thing that you can be grateful for no matter what is happening in your life. Perhaps it’s that you have the power to imagine a new you, or your health, a good friend, or just that you are still breathing! Whenever you cannot see the silver lining around the dark clouds in your life, simply open your heart, breathe deeply, and then think about as many things as you can to be grateful for. In each moment, there are so many many incredible things that you can be grateful for, large and small. Just open your heart, relax, look at the bigger picture, and soon you will realize how truly blessed you already are. "Appreciation can make a day, even change a life. Your willingness to put it into words is all that is necessary." ~Margaret Cousins You always have the choice to be grateful for what is, or not grateful for what is. You have the power to choose what kinds of thoughts and feelings you focus on and eventually manifest into your life. You can choose to adopt an unending attitude of gratitude or remain strapped to the judgmental merry-go-round of the mind. Choosing gratitude is choosing freedom, and will make your life easier than you ever imagined. It will bring you such a vast experience of love that you will freely feel and experience your own soul. One powerful technique for creating a gratitude habit is starting a gratitude circle. Invite some of your friends, colleagues, and family members to join you in an evening of appreciation and gratitude. Each person gets to be in the middle of the circle, and everyone takes turns looking directly into their eyes, and telling them why they are so grateful that this person is a part of their life. Then, switch so that everybody has a turn to be the person in the middle of the circle to receive gratitude. Each time we do a gratitude circle, truly miraculous experiences start to occur in our lives. This is one technique of many that will raise your vibration and allow you to manifest the life you desire.
