As the year closes I'd like to talk about two of my favorite topics which are so closely linked; gratitude and abundance. It was the practice of gratitude that turned my life and my poor attitude around. I'll be the first to admit that I'm a pretty optimistic person. That certainly wasn't nurture because both my parents were died-in-the-wool pessimists. But even as far back as my my late twenties and early thirties I seemed to look for the benefit in all that happened to me. I still do that when things don't go right for me. I think about it before responding and then decide that there was some information that was missing in my equation. Or that it wasn't time, or that it would not be for my benefit at that time. This is not a fatalistic mindset "Oh it wasn't meant to be" because I believe that we do create our own reality, our mind's reality. I also believe that there is a time for things to happen because the Universe has to orchestrate many things before we get what we want. And sometimes we ourselves are not in harmony with what we want.
In all that I've read on manifesting what we want it is becoming more clear with each book that is written that we have to be in vibrational harmony with what we desire. That means emotionally in harmony. We cannot create or draw to us something that is so far our of our vibrational reach that we can't even imagine it. One of the most beautiful and easiest ways to do this is the practice of daily gratitude because gratitude and abundance go together. Gratitude and Joy are the highest vibrating emotions. Therefore, when we remember to daily practice being in harmony with what we already have around us in gratitude we are setting up our day and our life to be in harmony with all the good things the Universe has for us.
Once we have begun a practice of gratitude, and it has to be something you remind yourself to do daily, not just a one time thing, and offer your gifts to the world, you will see the flow of abundance flowing into your life. You have to offer what you ARE and OPEN the door first. Then all the good the Universe has for you can come into your life. It is a profound vibrational gift that we give ourselves and the world. I've seen it happen in my own life this year and I hope you have too.
May all things flow into your life, in the abundance of your own gratitude for all that you have.
I am so grateful for my readers and my clients.
