Going for gratitude

Gratitude is one of the most powerful frequencies in the world.

Are you alive?

If you answered “of course”, think again. Do you feel so vibrantly alive that you are regularly moved to joy by the grandeur of ordinary things surrounding you? Do you smile broadly with eyes bright and your heart warmed when you realise just how loved you are and how others know that you love them?

What is it about gratitude?

Greatness loves gratitude.

Often you are not receiving what you desire in life because you lack gratitude for what you already have. There are times in which you need to thank the darkness because gratitude will help transform it into light.

Stop for a moment and think about how often you find yourself complaining about all the things you don’t have. Now compare that to the amount of time you express gratitude for all you already have. Are you noticing where the majority of your energy is going? If such a large portion of energy is allocated to lack and so little to the blessings in your life, what do you believe will be showing up in your future?

Gratitude without practice is like faith with works, it is not alive, and instead of crafting exquisite realities, too many people struggle to survive. Your words and thoughts are the building blocks of your reality and gratitude is your fuel.

Gratitude and your future

Why is gratitude important in the crafting of your future?

It is important because being in gratitude for the not yet manifested informs the Universe that you believe and trust that what you desire already exists and places you in the right frequency to receive it.

Remember that worrying never robs tomorrow of its sorrow; it only saps today of its potential, and to thrive or not to thrive is one of the most important choices you will ever make.

Thriving starts with a choice – a choice to adopt an attitude of gratitude for all that you have.

What is it to thrive?

Thrivers are people who are able to engage over time in conscious acts of creating their own context for their lives. They choose to look for the “gift” in all situations, that one thing for which they can express gratitude, and they channel their energy towards that. They believe wholeheartedly in an abundant future in which all their dreams are capable of becoming a reality.

I invite you to think about your life as if you have just discovered your extremely good fortune to have one for the first time.
