Being grateful is a very powerful strategy for attracting more of what you want into your life
If you are grateful for what you already have then the universe will manifest many more good things in your life. The Law of Gratitude is a powerful natural law like the Law of Attraction and the Law of Gravity.
Why Appreciating What You Already Have Will Bring You More
You need to appreciate everything you already have, what you already are, and everything you already do, before you can have anything you want, be anything you want to be, and do anything you want to do in the future.
How can you expect to receive more good things if you do not appreciate what you already have?
Think of someone you might do favours for. How would you feel if he doesn’t really appreciate what you do for him? Maybe you will decide not to do him any more favours. Why should you?
On the other hand, you do favours for another person who thanks you most sincerely and from the heart, really expressing his appreciation for what you do. Won’t you continue helping that person whenever possible in the future? You will do so, with enthusiasm, knowing that this person is genuinely grateful.
What about giving gifts? When you give gifts, you should be giving without any expectation of receiving in return. You do, expect, however, the recipient to be grateful and acknowledge your gift in some way. If he expresses his gratitude, then you are more likely to give him more gifts in the future. If he is ungrateful or does not acknowledge your generosity, or never says “Thank You”, you may well decide not to give him anything else because he is ungrateful.
Well, it’s the same with the universe. If you are constantly expressing gratitude for what you have, the universe will be happy to shower you with many more good things for you to be grateful for. If you are not grateful for what you have, then the universe is unlikely to bring more good things into your life.
So How Does All This ‘Magic’ Work?
Let’s go back to the Law of Attraction and the creative power of your thoughts. You are a human transmission station, you send your thoughts out into the universe on a particular wavelength, depending on how positive or negative these thoughts are.
Like a magnet, like attracts like. You attract to you the people, the events, the circumstances, the opportunities, the money, the car, the house, etc. that are vibrating on the same level on which you are transmitting your own thoughts.
When you are experiencing certain emotions at the positive end of the scale, like love, forgiveness, happiness, and gratitude, the thoughts you are transmitting are vibrating on a very high level and you are now in alignment for the Law of Attraction to bring what you want into your life.
When you are grateful, therefore, you have opened up the channels to receive more things to be grateful for. You are unlocking the unlimited abundance available through the universe.
Why does gratitude have such a positive impact on your life? To understand this, think about how you feel when you are expressing gratitude. If you are grateful right now for something in your life, how do you feel? You feel happy, right? You cannot be grateful at this moment, and feel unhappy at the same time. So being grateful means you are happy, and if you are happy, then you feel positive, energetic, enthusiastic, relaxed, and optimistic.
Feelings of anger, fear, frustrations, stress, jealousy, either disappear or are much diminished, when you are grateful.
Think about it. Can you feel both positive and negative emotions, at the same time? Can you? No, of course not. Which emotions would you prefer to feel from moment to moment?
Focus on Being Grateful Throughout the Day
If you focus on being grateful throughout each day, being thankful for all the good things you already have in your life, rather than on all those things you don’t have, then you will eliminate those negative emotions that hold you back, like jealousy, unhappiness, bitterness, resentment, regrets, etc.
How do most people behave with respect to being grateful? Is it not a fact that most people live their lives on autopilot? They go through a typical day, without really thinking about what’s going on around them. They moan about this, they complain about that, they are never satisfied, they want this, they want that, and so on.
They are living their lives in a continuous cycle of always wanting more, and convincing themselves they will only be happy when they have the new television, the new kitchen, the new car, the new holiday home, the new house on the hill, and so on. They are delaying that wonderful emotional state of happiness until some future date, which, of course, may never come! What’s wrong with being happy NOW, in this moment?
Surely the quickest way to happiness is being in a constant state of gratitude? Gratitude should be a continuous and constant flow, a feeling that never leaves you. You should be in a constant state of thankfulness in order to create the abundance in your life that is available to you. Spend a few minutes each hour being grateful. This is a simple activity, it feels good, and it’s fun. When you are in a state of gratitude then there is no room for resentment, jealousy, and other unpleasant feelings.
Your first thoughts on waking up, while showering, brushing your teeth, getting dressed, should be thoughts of gratitude.
This is a critical element in enjoying your life day by day, and moment by moment. All it takes to be happy now, in this moment, is to be grateful for all the good things you have in your life, in this moment, and in every moment! When you are experiencing this constant state of gratitude, and you are, therefore, continually in a state of happiness, the Law of Attraction is now clear to work in your favour because you are vibrating constantly at a high frequency.
By enjoying every moment, you are able to express gratitude. This means switching off the autopilot, being present each moment, being aware that you are alive, healthy, and conscious of the beauty all around you.
So understanding and implementing the attitude of gratitude into your life will help you attract more things into your life to be grateful for, and you will be able to have everything you want to have, be everything you want to be, and do everything you want to do.
Be Grateful For What You Have Not Yet Received
When you give thanks for what you want in advance, you are transmitting very powerful signals out into the universe. When you visualize achieving what you want, with vivid images and powerful emotions, and you express and feel gratitude as if you have already received, then you speed up the process of manifesting that which you want to have, be, and do.
Most people seem to be totally unaware of the incredible power that the Law of Gratitude can give them. Now you can benefit from this power.
