Gratitude means giving thanks from your heart. When you do this, energy flows from your heart and activates certain responses from other people, as well as the Universe.
When you are totally grateful to a person for something they have done, that person feels the energy of thanks and is so over-joyed by it that they want to give you more. When you send out heartfelt thanks to the Universe for the blessings you have received, the Divine energy lovingly responds by giving you even more blessings.
Heartfelt gratitude is a key to abundance … it unlocks the great resources of the Universe.
Judgement and criticism are the opposite (or polar) of gratitude and appreciation. Genuine gratitude and appreciation heals. When you appreciate something and are grateful for it, you are focusing on it, so by the Spiritual Law of Attention, it increases and multiplies.
When we realize that we are sent challenges because they help us to grow, we alter our attitude towards them.
Within every challenging situation is the gift of a lesson. Our task is to learn the lesson and appreciate what it has taught us.
If you want your life to become happier, healthier and more abundant keep a ‘gratitude journal’. Every day write down a few things you are thankful for. You will find yourself looking for good things to record in it and you will automatically become more positive and appreciative.
Attitudes which activate the Law of Gratitude:
• be positive and appreciative
• count your blessings
• Be joyful. When you glow with happiness you are appreciating what you have
• remember the good things about a person, and people in general
• focus on the good in every situation
• give praise generously
• use the words ‘thank you’ genuinely
• be loving and kind
• recognize your own magnificence
• celebrate life and be happy
Gratitude brings to you untold blessings from the Universe.
