The Magic of Gratitude
It’s November and the month of Thanksgiving! I can’t think of a better time to learn the magic and science of gratitude. Have you ever found yourself on the bottom floor of your emotions, not caring whether you live or die, or been so numb to your feelings that you don’t feel anything anymore? Me too!
According to Albert Einstein, “Everything is Energy … match the frequency of the reality you want, you cannot help but to get that reality.” It’s that simple! This quote helped me realize that emotions really are energy-in-motion.
We have high emotions and we have low emotions. Gratitude is a high vibrational emotion. Higher vibrations consume and transform lower ones, thus, each of us can change the energies in our lives by connecting to GRATITUDE!
Example: "I’m so done … I don’t want to do this anymore."
Reframe: "I’m so grateful I’m aware that … I’m so done … I don’t want to do this anymore." Feel the difference? You are still overwhelmed but you have a glimmer of hope that lifts you up a bit.
Example: "What an awful day! I just want to go to bed and never get up”
Reframe: "I’m so grateful this day is over!" Feel the difference?
Example: "I am all alone, no one is here for me.”
Reframe: "I am grateful I am aware of how I feel ... I feel alone!"
Being grateful changes the vibration in your brain and body, and gives you hope and understanding as to what to pray for.
Example: "Father in Heaven (God above, etc.) please bless me with companionship, hope for a better tomorrow, peace of mind, personal touch, (or what ever else you are in need of)." God truly is the giver of all gifts.
So when you find yourself on the bottom floor of life, remember to be grateful that you are learning what you don’t want and are getting more clarity about what you do want. That’s GRATITUDE!
