3 Ways To Make Gratitude A Way of Life

The Universe loves a grateful heart! An attitude of gratitude is the best way to attract more into one’s life.

International educator Dr. John Demartini, in the movie The Secret, pronounces his mantra for an abundant life as, “What you think about and thank about, you bring about.”

All the renowned scholars of spirituality are on the same page when it comes to the practice of gratitude. In the words of Dr. Joe Vitale, “If each of us would practice gratitude in the moment, all worries would vanish, all problems would resolve, all miracles would come easily — in fact, if we really were practising gratitude in the moment, we’d realize we are already happy, already peaceful, and already living the miracle.”

If you are looking for that one missing piece in your life that would give you the required boost to manifest all of your dreams, then you are in the right place.

Read on to find out exactly how to incorporate gratitude into your day-to-day life and experience the goodness that has been evading you all this while.

1. Spare A Minute To Express Gratitude Once You Are Awake

The moment you are awake in the morning is the best time to express thankfulness for a good night’s sleep and set a positive tone for the day.

Louise Hay vouches for the miraculous power of affirmations, which coupled with gratitude can work wonders.

It is essential to set forth your intentions for the day by declaring to the Universe how you wish for this day to turn up.

Harness the power of the Universe by thanking it for all the good that prevails in your life right now, proclaim that this is going to be a good day and let the Universe lead the way.

2. Take Delight In The Little Things In Life

Did a stranger smile at you at the bus stop? Did someone hold the door open while you walked out of the coffee shop?

Did your boss praise you for the work you did on the project?

These little instances in everyday life remind us that there is enough good to go around in the world.

Add your own bit to it by letting all those who have been kind to you know that you appreciate their gestures and mean it from your heart.

A smile accompanying a sincere thank you is worth millions!

3. Keep A Gratitude Journal

Esther Hicks in her book, Ask and It Is Given, urges her readers to keep what she calls ‘a book of positive aspects.’

A practice of writing down the positive aspects of your life is a sure shot way of asking the Universe for more of such things.

A gratitude journal evokes feelings of thankfulness while you recall and record the positive events in your life.

In addition to filling your heart with gratitude while engaging in this exercise, you can always look back into the pages during gloomy days to usher in a ray of hope.

The feeling of gratitude is the secret ingredient that all the greatest teachers who have ever walked the planet add to their daily lives.

Such is the power of a thankful heart that Pam Grout has penned a book where she invites her readers to undertake ‘a 30-day experiment in shameless gratitude and unabashed joy.’

Make gratitude a way of life and you will be amazed at how the Universe gives you increasingly more reasons to be thankful for.

“Gratitude places you in the energy field of plentitude. Glow with gratitude and see how awe and joy will make their home in you.” – Michael Bernard Beckwith
