Go Beyond the Law of Attraction With the Law of Gratitude
Most of us have heard of the Law of Attraction which is an important part of manifesting our destiny. However, fewer realize that showing gratitude is an intricate part of that manifestation. The Law of Gratitude can be summed up by saying if we give thanks regularly then we will receive more, as gratitude gains momentum. The more grateful you are for things in your life, the more you will abundantly receive.
It goes without saying that it is almost always easier to give than to receive. Imagine receiving a gift unexpectedly, with blushing cheeks, squirming uncomfortably in your seat and the difficulty to even know what to say to the giver. This is the challenge for us all to overcome. When we can get past our ego and come to the understanding that we are never grateful for the things in our life that we think we deserve and that gratitude is earned, like grace, we will come to accept that we must be grateful for everything that comes our way, not just the gifts for which we ask. This will take us to a higher self; one that will connect us to our spirituality. If you use gratitude as a means to obtain more gifts (which we are all guilty of now and again), you are not experiencing a soul connection but rather a limitation by the ego. If we can really let go of our embarrassment and self-examine, we can truly bond with our higher self.
The Law of Gratitude works like this: You must be grateful for what you receive. If you are, then you will receive more. If you are not, then the giving ceases. It is the grateful state of being that attracts more. Complaining is the opposite of being thankful. Our desire with a grateful heart is the magnet to receiving more of what we want.
Being grateful for what you have been given helps you understand just how blessed you really are. The more consciously grateful you are, the more your blessings will manifest abundantly in your life. Being grateful will also inspire feelings of joy and delight. From the perspective of Karma, the more you give, the more you will receive. The more you assist others, the more you will assist yourself.
When you say “thank you,” there is usually an overwhelming feeling of contentment. Negative thoughts will disrupt the flow of energy, creating resistance. Maintaining positive thoughts including gratitude assist in evolving your deepest desires.
So, how can you incorporate more gratitude into your life? Make it a habit to give thanks at the same time every day. Choose a trinket or a crystal that you keep in your pocket and when you touch it, make it a point to give thanks, or when you look in the mirror, give thanks for who you are and what you have become. There will be a time when you realize there just isn’t enough time to be grateful for every little or large blessing in your life. Don’t stop giving thanks because of that. Just understand and be grateful that you are in the flow of gratitude. Namaste.
