The Importance of Gratitude to Get What You Want
Think about something that you feel grateful for — really grateful. Sit with that feeling for a minute or longer. Do you notice that thinking about and appreciating whatever you are grateful for leaves you feeling happier, maybe even elated? That’s what being grateful does for you — because gratitude and love are the highest vibrations you can feel. And because they are so high, you feel wonderful that can lead you to attracting what your heart desires.
When we feel gratitude for even the smallest things in our lives, we exude love and happiness so then that’s what we attract. When we’re feeling angry, sad or anything less than loving and grateful, we tend to attract those types of energies and experiences in our lives.
Some Simple Ways We can Raise our Gratitude Vibration
- Think of something that you’re grateful for — could be as simple as receiving a discount on something you bought or for your child’s happy and loving smile towards you. Then focus on your heart and keep feeling the love and gratitude. Now expand that feeling throughout your heart, then throughout your body and then throughout the room you’re in. Starting to feel expanded? That’s a freeing, wonderful and happy feeling which expands you to receive more of the good things you want! Enjoy the bliss!
- Keep a gratitude journal. It doesn’t have to be long and time-consuming to do. First, start with a journal and pen that feels good to you. Then either in the morning or evening, make a list of 5-10 things you are grateful for that day. Oprah Winfrey stated once on her tv show years ago that she did this daily. Try to think of different things to be grateful for so that you stretch yourself and realize how much good you have in your life. It can be even as small as enjoying a good cup of coffee or ice cream cone. Doing this daily, really helps raise your vibration and that feels so good.
- Look around your environment and focus on something that you enjoy looking at (a picture of your child, your grandmother’s ring, the vase you bought that is beautiful — anything at all) and think about how this object is beautiful, useful or triggers happy memories, etc. The longer you look at and feel appreciation, the more your feelings will increase. Once your good feelings strengthen, choose another object and rinse and repeat.
All of these practices help you to practice feeling good and that raises your vibration. The more you can maintain those good feeling vibes, the more happy, good thoughts, experiences, people and things can enter your life. It’s an ongoing practice for us to keep our thoughts and vibrations positive — but one that is so worth it!!
