Blessed #ManifestationMonday Beloved!
I have a question for ya… Have you ever gotten annoyed with someone that said that you should be grateful for what you got when you felt anything but? Be honest! Well they were doing you a bigger favor than you may have thought at the time.
So why is practicing the art of gratitude so important? Well first of all it’s a great way to flow in the protection, blessings and favor of God. Gratitude has such a high vibrational frequency that it contains powerful, positive manifestation power.
It is like love. There are times when you don’t feel like expressing it, but every time you do, you’re making a deposit in your “blessing account”. The more you put in the more you get out. Unfortunately complaining has the same amount of manifestation power. The problem is those deposits go into a whole other account. Scary right?…I know!
Here are three simple practices I’ve used for years to ensure that I stay reminded to keep an attitude of gratitude even when it’s the last thing I want to do. Ephesians 5:20 “Giving thanks always for all unto God and the father in the name of Jesus Christ.”
THE GRATITUDE LIST
One of the best things you can do to change a negative perception of your day, any situation or even your life is to create a Gratitude List that you read each morning. It may often seem that life gives us more reasons to complain than be grateful but that’s not true. The issue is not living in a state of gratitude, it’s not looking for things to be thankful for. Many things may seem insignificant to us until we no longer have them, like clean running water for an example. And what about people? Your sanitation men may not mean enough to you to greet them with a daily dose of gratitude until they return after not coming around for a month.
1. Type or write on the top of the page My Gratitude List.
2. Create a row of numbers on the left side of the page from 1 to 50 or more.
3. Start at number one and write or type I am so grateful that/for __________” and fill in the blank. The best time to write this list is when you’re in a high vibration or happy state. Feel free to add to the list as more things come to mind.
4. Print out a few copies and keep one on your night stand to read in the morning and/or at night. Keep another list in your wallet, handy for those times when you need it most!
THE GRATITUDE GAME
The Gratitude Game is easy, fun and very effective. Just speak out loud 10 or more things you’re thankful for off the top of your head. In the morning before you get out of bed and/or at night before you go to sleep are great times to play. It can go something like this, Lord I’m thankful for my house, I’m thankful for the job, I’m thankful for my family and so on. It doesn’t matter if you repeat the same things each time you play. In fact it’s good. I do suggest that you challenge yourself by adding new stuff every time. It’s also fun to play the Gratitude Game with someone. Take turns quickly going back and forth keeping a rhythm.
THE GRATITUDE LETTER
Need more love and perhaps some emotional healing? Sow a Gratitude Letter each month. We all know how impactful a kind, unexpected letter can be, especially today when hardly anyone writes on stationary anymore. Leviticus 22:29 “And when you offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the Lord, offer it of your own free will.” Just imagine a pretty envelope addressed in script, to you, peeping out between your bills. I can guarantee that the letter would be the first thing you open. Am I right? That’s exactly what your letter will do for others. Think of the ripple effect sending out one letter each month would make in the lives of the receivers and yours as well. Here’s what you do.
Make a list of people who have done something important for you whom you never properly thanked. Pick a person each month to write to. Use special stationary or a pretty card. Write down exactly what they did for you and how it has impacted your life. Really take time to craft your words. Write it in your best cursive. You can even throw in a little confetti; add a spritz of fragrance and a pretty stamp. Go through your list each month and repeat the process. The idea is not to expect anything in return from the receiver, just trust in the ripple effect.
