In order to make things better, we need to bring the things we are grateful for back out into the light where we are aware all the time. When we start to list all the things we are grateful for, we see that our lives aren't as bad as what we may feel. Also, being grateful and showing gratitude attracts more things to be grateful for. The law of attraction will react and align with your positive vibrations of gratitude and will bring you more things to be grateful for.
So what are you grateful for? Who are the people in your life that mean a lot to you and why? Do you have a place to call home? Do you have food and clothing? Can you walk? Even if you have disabilities, what can you do that you should be grateful for?
There is truth in the saying 'count your blessings'. That makes them multiply. Every night when you go to bed, count your blessings, list everything you you are grateful for.
Don't stop there - learn to appreciate things like how beautiful the sky was today or the big tree in your yard that must have been there for a long time. Appreciate the wonderful and amazing things that surround you. Put yourself in places where you can enjoy this world's beauty and really absorb it. Don't just look at a flower and say that it is pretty. Really look at it. How many leaves does it have - or petals? Really look at the color and the texture. Actually appreciate this living being. If you hold the flower, you can tune into its healing energy.
Melody Beattie said,"Gratitude turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion into clarity...it makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."
This is a very wise statement that yields the truth. How about another one?
"Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance." Eckhart Tolle
The practice of gratitude every day really starts to change your life but like everything you set out to improve - you must have persistence. It takes 30 to 90 days to realize a change but you will experience a positive and wonderful change.
