The law of gratitude is one of the most important Universal laws. Gratitude is an energy exchange that leads to the movement of energy in your life. When energy moves, it becomes as pure as a mountain river. This flow always brings about happiness, health, joy, love, and success in your life. Gratitude affirmations are one of the most simple yet powerful tools you can use to enter into a grateful state fast and easily.

Recommendations for Working With Gratitude Affirmations

First of all, I want to share with you some simple rules that will help you avoid common mistakes when you’re working with gratitude affirmations:

  1. Before starting to read your gratitude affirmations, make sure to straighten your back, relax your shoulders, feel confident. You want to remove any pressure from your spine and make your energy flow freely and smoothly.
  2. Write down or make a printout of all the gratitude affirmations you’re going to work with.
  3. Say the gratitude affirmations out loud one after another, slowly and confidently. Make it sound as if what you say has already become a reality.
  4. While saying the gratitude affirmations look in the mirror or in the sky.
  5. Say the affirmations twice a day. This should be done in the morning, as soon as possible after waking up, and in the evening, right before going to bed.
  6. Say the affirmations at least 8 times each.
  7. When you’re saying the gratitude affirmations focus your attention on the keywords.
  8. Do not use too many affirmations all at once in one session.
  9. Be consistent: read the gratitude affirmations on a daily basis.

Note

Remember that the most effective affirmations for you are the ones came up with on your own. When making affirmations, do not affirm in the negative by using “not”, use the pronouns “I”, “my” and so on instead.

Always Combine Gratitude Affirmations with Visualisation!

Visualization Image

Visualization is the mental formation of pictures of the reality you desire. This is one of the most powerful tools to achieve your goals.

To visualize is basically to imagine the desired result while reading the affirmations.

The effectiveness of visualization is due to the fact that the brain can not distinguish the real event from the imagined. Surely many have noticed that if you constantly think about what you want, sooner or later the dream comes true or opportunities present themselves in such a way that the desired dream can be actualized. This is the visualization of desires. The brain, when concentrating on a certain desire, begins to look for all the ways to implement it.

Therefore, every time you read gratitude affirmations try to visualize in detail everything you’re grateful for.

Gratitude Affirmations You Can Use

Each gratitude affirmation has the following structure: the words “Thank you”, “I thank” or “I am grateful for”, followed by the object that you thank and all the things you are grateful for. The following is a list of gratitude affirmations.

  • Thank you, God, for all the good things in my life!
  • I’m grateful for every person I meet in my life exactly when I need him (her)!
  • Thank you, Universe, for everything you give me!
  • Thank you, Universe, for my amazing life!
  • Thank you, God, for my happy and healthy family!
  • I’m grateful for the opportunity to wake up every day in a great mood!
  • I’m grateful for my mother and father, for their unconditional love and caring for me!
  • Thank you, Universe, for what I have all is obtained!
  • Thank you, Universe, for everything you created for me!
  • Thank you, all the people, for good life lessons!
  • Thank you, God, for all the good things that are given to me!
  • Thank you, Universe, for the fact that I feel great, energized, and enthusiastic!
  • Thank you, Universe, for the beauty of nature, the opportunity to travel the world and enjoy my life on this planet!
  • Thank you, God, for creating this beautiful world in which I live happily and fully!
  • I’m grateful for every moment of my wonderful life!
  • Thank you, Universe, for all your wonderful gifts that I receive and recognize every day!
  • I’m grateful for all my wishes to come true!
  • I thank myself for my belief in love, compassion, and kindness of this world!
  • I thank myself for staying positive no matter what happens around me!
  • I thank every person I meet in my life for love, kindness, and experience!
  • I am grateful for every meal I have, for every sip of water I drink, for every breath I take!

Conclusion

The list of affirmations I shared with you in this article is just a general idea you can use to start your gratitude practice. But it’s always more effective to create your own affirmations that contain all the things you’re grateful for. Gratitude affirmations that you come up with yourself are more personalized thus more effective for your visualizing and manifesting.

Remember to express gratitude not just for the things you already have in life but also for the things you want to attract. It’s amazing how fast it works! The Universe hears your gratitude for something you don’t have and starts changing your reality in the way that you have everything you’re grateful for. Isn’t it amazing? I always say: “To thank is easier than to ask!”. If you understand this simple thing you will never feel the need in anything!

The Gift of Giving: Benefits of Generosity

Published

on

Gift of time image

Tis the season for Gift Giving! What are the true benefits of giving? In what place do you give from? Why do you give? How does giving serve you and the ones you give to? What comes from a generous heart? In this article, I’m going to share with you what may come as a surprise, the benefits of generosity and what exactly is in the gift of giving.

Around holidays, birthdays, and celebrations we tend to give more, or we are encouraged to give gifts around these specific times. Do we really take the time to examine why we are giving and what intentions we have in our giving?

It’s important to develop and create a generous heart with no obligations or expectations of return.

Giving Just Because

wrapping christmas presents image

One of the main reasons to give should be because your heart desires to. Think of giving not as a duty but as a privilege.
Giving out of obligation, giving to serve the ego, giving to get something in return or giving just because it’s the holidays will not be rewarding and will not carry the same heart resonance as giving just because your heart wants to give from a place with zero expectations or obligations.

The holidays can become stressful and financially unmanageable when you are pressuring yourself to give during these specific times. We tend to look for gifts during these periods and then it becomes obligatory in nature and this can remove the pleasure that comes with giving freely from the heart.

Giving when you are prompted from your heart, versus because there’s simply a holiday present, will always be more rewarding.
It removes the pressures of only giving during the holidays and spreads cheer year around. Many of us give during these specific times because we feel like we should because it seems most everyone else is giving during these times and because socially it’s the “thing” to do and what is expected or appropriate in our society.

I encourage you to give all year around for no reason at all other than your heart’s desire. Maybe a friend or a relative is going through a tough period and you want to lift their spirits, this is a great time to activate your generosity and send a small token or handwritten note to express your sentiments. Giving as a surprise just because you appreciate others meaningful presence in your life. When people aren’t expecting gifts and they show up “just because” the joy is usually immense from the recipient.

Small gestures go a long way. The gift of giving is the gift.

Generosity Enhances Your Life On Many Levels

gift giving

You will receive an upwelling of joy and warmth that is bestowed upon the recipient when you give. The magic is reciprocated by the spirit of generosity.

It feels enriching to give. When you give you are opening your own portals to receive. When you hold, begrudge and constrict you block your own blessings and gifts of reciprocity. The more generous and giving your heart is the more space you allow for universal gifts to flow into your own life.

Giving from your heart increases your well being, transmutes stress and in turn boosts your immune system. Feeling the excitement and love that others feel from receiving your beautiful intentions and heartfelt expressions cause a multitude of chain reactions throughout your entire being. On a cellular, physical and spiritual level we are being activated in a positive energetic way. The world needs more generosity, we thrive on it, whereas greed has the opposite effect, debilitating ourselves.

There Are Many Ways to Give And Be Generous

gift of time image

Many times when we think of gift giving we think of physical things that require financial means, this is not the only way to give. In fact, some of the most precious and heartfelt gifts take little to no money at all. The manner of giving is worth more than the gift.

We all know how valuable time and effort is. We live in a busy world with many demands. This is why freely gifting your time and presence is highly valued.

  • Donating an extra set of hands on a project of giving back to others.
  • Taking the time to listen and be present when others are feeling challenged.
  • Creating handmade cards, crafts, artwork or just handwritten love notes to those you hold near and dear to your heart.
  • Drawing a salt bath with essential oils for a partner, friend or loved one after a long day of work.
  • Asking how you can assist others in their time of need.
  • Offering free childcare to a single mother, father or couple that needs time for themselves.
  • Watering plants, feeding stray hungry animals, giving them shelter and a kind presence.
  • Giving someone a hug with encouragement.
  • Taking time to pray for others well being and success.
  • Holding someone’s hands when they’re afraid.
  • Holding doors open, allowing others to go in front of you in line.
  • Allowing others to be right.
  • Listening with a non-judgmental presence.
  • Listening to hear without having the need to respond.
  • Smiling and acknowledging others presence. Everyone matters.

There are endless opportunities for gift giving. Being creative and recognizing that any action, deed or gesture from the heart small or large is truly a gift.

Don’t Forget to Give to Yourself

self-love relationship

Ultimately by giving to others, you are giving to yourself. How you treat others is a big indicator of how you feel about yourself. Make sure you don’t forget yourself in this equation. Many of us are guilty of primarily gifting others and leaving ourselves out or feeling guilty for giving back to ourselves. You are an important part of the gift-giving circle. Treat yourself with kindness, compassion, and self-love. Make sure you refuel and restore yourself. Commit to showing up for yourself. Be good to your body. Check in with yourself regularly and make sure you are taking the time to give yourself the gift of cultivating healthy habits that enhance your mind, body, and soul.

The Bottom Line

I hope this article is a reminder that generosity comes in many different forms and that there is no certain right time to give. Most importantly that you should always give from your heart. I’ll leave you with this:

Gratitude Changes Everything: This Is How It Works!

Published

on

gratitude changes everything image

One of the most important Laws of the Universe is the law of Gratitude. Most people neglect it, and some are not even aware of its existence. But why is this law so important? And why do I say that gratitude changes everything? Simply because when it is violated, there is disharmony between your receiving and giving. Energy stops to circulate, begins to stagnate and eventually turns into a kind of “energy swamp”. And this “swamp” is the place where eventually begin to drown your dreams, well-being, health, success, and relationships. Your life begins to lose its brightness and gradually fades, turning into a routine.

In this article, I want to share with you why gratitude changes everything and how to practice it consciously.

What Does “Gratitude” Mean From the Energy Perspective?

In order for life to be bright and harmonious, the constant circulation of energy is necessary. That is, the energy must be constantly in motion in order to bring into your life all the benefits that you need: romantic relationships, money, health, success, and so on.

An “Energy swamp”, in turn, can only tighten inside all those goods, that you already have. But the problem is that by “sitting” in this “energy swamp” you’ll never be able to refresh your life with anything new. In other words, this “energy swamp” is keeping you away from your desired life and results.

The law of gratitude is an energy exchange that leads to the movement of energy in your life. When energy moves, it becomes as pure as a mountain river. This kind of energy flow always brings happiness, health, joy, love, and success in all endeavors.

How Can the Law of Gratitude Be Broken?

1. Sending negativity and dissatisfaction to the Universe

profanity words Image

Many people, being in a bad mood, start expressing their dissatisfaction with life. They accuse God, Universe, and the Higher Powers of all the imperfection of the World. Instead of being grateful for what they already have, they complain about their belief and fate.

There are so many things in the world that we should be grateful for: the blue sky above our heads, the air we breathe, the beauty of the flowers, the purring of the kitten… and you can go on forever! Each of us can make a list of what gives him pleasure, a sense of joy, and happiness.

However, in the daily hustle and bustle, people often stop noticing these gifts. They simply stop appreciating what they have and begin to take all these gifts from the Universe for granted.

Instead of always rushing somewhere in the bustle of everyday life, stop for a moment, look around, and you will find that you have many reasons to be grateful. Write down everything you are grateful for, read aloud what you have written, and in doing so, you will set the energy of your life in motion.

2. Not appreciating all the good things that people do for us

fight image

Very often we do not notice when other people do something for us. Or maybe we notice, but take it for granted. By doing so, we also violate the law of Gratitude.

Be as attentive as possible to what you get from other people, and always be ready to give something in return. When you give something back, you make the energy flow. When you take something for granted, you create an “energy swamp.”

Everyone determines for himself what he should give in return. It depends on how much you value the good you get from the other person. In any case, whatever you get, at least you need to say from the bottom of your heart: “Thank you!”.

I noticed that sometimes when people receive from me maybe not exactly what they expected they forget about gratitude. Instead of saying: “Thank you” they murmur: “why did you give me so little?” or “why don’t you give me exactly what I asked for?” and so forth. Karmically speaking, there is always a reason for everything. Even so-called “mistakes” or “unpleasant” experiences have a greater purpose. When we begin to understand this we are able to transform adversity into growth, thus giving ourselves another reason for gratitude.  So accept everything with gratitude. After all, by thanking a particular person, you are thanking the Universe itself. The Universe, in turn, by grasping the observance of the law of Gratitude, will give you more and more benefits through other people.

3. Receiving spiritual knowledge “for free”

reiki principle gratitude image

I noticed that many people believe that obtaining spiritual knowledge and initiations in any spiritual energy systems should be free, because the energies come from the Universe, and, accordingly, can not belong to anyone. In other words, according to these people’s point of view, spiritual knowledge should be shared free of charge. This worldview is a serious violation of the law of energy exchange – the law of Gratitude.

Turning to history, we will see that for centuries spiritual knowledge was not free and was not open to the masses. However, the fee was different. Instead of the money exchange, the service was used. In other words, students have always served their masters (or temples) for a certain amount of time before they even start their studies. The students had to live with their masters for quite a long time in order to serve them and work in the Ashrams. This is how the law of exchange was obeyed back in the days.

Today this exchange is primarily done monetarily. The modern pace of life has led to the fact that modern man simply does not have time to serve the teacher. Instead, it is easier for him to express his gratitude (in pursuance of the law of energy Exchange) with the help of money.

The desire of people to receive spiritual knowledge for free devalues this knowledge, which leads to a violation of the law of Gratitude. When we receive spiritual knowledge (which is essentially energy) in order to maintain a state of harmony, we must give something in return. The confusion around this law usually is around the idea that all spiritual knowledge should be free. In actuality, it is monetarily FREE to all who are willing to put in the time, energy, and effort to discover these mysteries themselves through meditation and deep contemplation – self-discovery. It’s when you would like someone to teach, guide, or assist you in transferring the knowledge they have gained at their own cost and no cost to you that this law becomes broken. In those cases when we do not do this, the Universe, observing the Law of energy Exchange, begins to fill this shortage itself, taking something from us in return, as an energy excess. The practice has confirmed that all those who received spiritual knowledge for free, in consequence, one way or another, paid for this knowledge through different kinds of “loss”.

4. Becoming a karmic debtor

karmic relationship healing image

When you getting something for free, breaking the law of exchange, you become a karmic debtor of the person who gave you something for free. Karmic debt forms energy bindings between the receiver and the giver, by which the giver takes the energy of the receiver. In other words, after receiving something for free, without expressing your gratitude, a person necessarily loses something in life. Moreover, these deprivations may concern not only the material sphere.

Thus, the Law of Gratitude says:

“When we get something, we have to give something back.”

The most important aspect of the transformation of consciousness is the ability not only to take but also to give.

How Do I Determine If You Are Breaking the Law of Gratitude?

For understanding, if you obeying or breaking the Law of Gratitude simply answer the following questions:

  • Do you have money problems?
  • Do you have any health problems?
  • Do you have a romantic relationship that completely satisfies you?
  • Do you have any difficulties in relations with people close to you (family)?
  • Do you feel lonely?

If you answered “Yes” to at least one of these questions, there are definitely violations of the law of Gratitude in your life. The brightest indicator that we don’t always obey the law of gratitude is us not being completely satisfied with our lives.

The Deeper Understanding of Gratitude

namaste meaning image

In order to come to the realization of gratitude, it is necessary to accept the following:

  1. There is a single intelligent Matter from which everything emerged.
  2. This Matter gives you everything you desire.
  3. In order to interact harmoniously with this Matter, it is necessary to connect yourself with it with a sense of deep and heartfelt gratitude.

Many people believe that they do everything “right” in life, but at the same time, they sincerely do not understand why they remain poor, sick, lonely, unhappy, unlucky, etc. But the answer is very simple – due to a lack of gratitude.

Only through the prism of gratitude, can you see the wholeness beyond duality. While there is no gratitude, a person is always in a state of “limited potential”. It always seems to him that resources are limited, he always lacks something, he is constantly dissatisfied with something.

Any discontent is a sign of life in duality. Just think about this – how the “whole” can be unsatisfied or unhappy? Wholeness is everything, so how can it be in need of something? Only the particles that feel disconnected can be unsatisfied and unhappy, simply because they have forgotten their true nature. And the true nature of any particle is integrity.

The duality of perception of reality always tells us that resources are limited, we need to take as much as possible – because then something may not be enough. In our world, people push bully and “TAKE”! But to think that some benefits may not be enough – means to live in the illusion of limited opportunities. The reality is that Infinity has no boundaries. It will give you anything you want, as long as you unclench your fists and hold your hands. Don’t be greedy! Any good is enough for everyone! Do not skimp on gratitude, compliments, kindness, love, and compassion. Become an Endless source for other people! And then you will enter into a beautiful resonance with Infinity!

Ungrateful Mind Attracts Trouble

Woman stressed image

The meaning of gratitude is not only to bring you good in the future. Without gratitude, you will not be able to stay away from negativity for too long. Sooner or later there will come a time when you let your mind linger on discontent and you start to lose the ground under your feet. When you focus your attention on poverty, pity, mediocrity, pain, suffering, betrayal, etc. – your mind begins to form a negative reality. The Universe puts these images into the matter, which begins to take the form of poverty, pity, mediocrity, pain, suffering, betrayal, etc.

To allow your mind to linger on the negativity means you have agreed to the fact that the negativity has become your daily reality. Conversely, to fix your attention on the positivity means to agree to the fact that your reality has become positive and happy, and every moment of life becomes better than the previous one. The creative power within us brings us in line with the way we pay attention to. We ourselves are made up of thinking matter, which always takes the form of what we think.

A grateful mind is always focused on the best. Thus, it takes the form and quality of all the best, and, accordingly, creates a happy reality. We attract what we express! And gratitude changes everything!

It Is  Easier to Thank Than to Ask

praying girl image

Many people turn to God only when they need something. But the thing is, when we ask something from the Universe, we come from a state of need. When we replace the need with the abundance in our minds, we begin to shape an abundant life. Therefore, it is very useful to develop a habit of thanking instead of asking.

Next time you want to ask the Universe for something, instead thank the Universe as if you already have it. So you set in motion the realization of your intention to get what you want. And the effect of such an action will be much faster than when you ask for something based on a sense of need.

Conclusion

gratitude image

The positive mind never asks, it thanks! This is how the Law of Attraction works. We should learn how to stop feeling the need for something, and start noticing what we already have. Gratitude changes everything! It is not difficult to see. As soon as you start expressing gratitude you will feel happier, your life will be easier, and your problems will be solved without any effort. It may seem difficult to believe but this is how it works. Just bring the magical attitude of gratitude into your life and be ready for miracles to happen!
