A couple years ago I took a challenge on Facebook. EVERY day I wrote what I was grateful for in the month of November.This wasn’t the first time I dedicated a few minutes of my day to gratitude. I have used it as a tool for about seven years. When I can’t seem to get my head out of the vicious spin cycle, I go to gratitude. Now that I have a Facebook page: From A Loving Place (click on the red to take you to the page), I decided I wanted to share the gifts that come with focusing our energy in a more loving and appreciative place. If you have Facebook and would like to join in on the experience, please like the page, click “Following” then click on “See First” doing this will ensure that the daily dose of gratitude shows up in your News Feed.
The state of gratitude raises our vibrational energy and we start attracting amazing people and adventures to our lives. We also help heal the world, because when our focus is there, we don’t get pulled down by other people’s drama. We also become clear enough to see solutions and alternative thought patterns. I hope you will join me in spreading gratitude.
If you don’t have Facebook, I hope you will commit to yourself to write down three things your grateful for each day. Here’s a trick to getting the most out of it: You have to completely engage the feeling of gratitude. Feel the awe of the moment that you are grateful for, and revel in the feeling for a second. I will warn you, some blessings might be disguised as chaos at first. STICK TO IT! Miracles come after the chaos. Our ego gets used to being in control and when we try to break free sometimes everything can look worse, but push through. The miracles are on the other side. If you are anything like me, they will be better than anything you could have imagined was possible.
Keep your head in the gratitude. Don’t utter the words, “I can’t believe this is happening!” Don’t think or say any variation of it. Saying things like that actually sabotage the good in our life. We send a message out there that we don’t deserve the good that is happening to us, then we start looking for reasons it’s not as good as it seems. Our focus becomes stuck there instead of in the gratitude, so we start finding flaws. Before we know it, the great thing that happened is gone. I learned that lesson over and over again the hard way, I mean beat down with the emotional 2×4 hard way.
No matter what you decide to do today, I hope you have a grateful day!
With Love and Gratitude,
