The art of gratitude to manifest
Updated: Nov 8, 2021
Gratitude is a form of prayer, as Meister Eckhart once said ‘If the only prayer you said was thank you, that would be enough.’
Expressing gratitude can be written or spoken it is in taking action that you change your thoughts and raise your energetic vibration.
Keep a gratitude diary, so you can write what you are grateful for on a daily basis, this helps to bring you more good things into your life.
If you can’t think of what you are grateful for, start with 5 things that have happened in your day, which you appreciate. It could be catching your train, driving somewhere and arriving on time, despite of the traffic. The food you had which was delicious and nourishing or a child’s laughter!
As you practice noticing and acknowledging you begin to notice even more things to be grateful for.
You can also write what you are anticipating, but make sure it is in the now, such as ‘thank you I have the tickets booked for my holiday to France.’ Notice it is already booked, even though you don’t know if you will be able to have the holiday maybe due to money, or travel arrangements, it doesn’t matter you are telling the universe to get on with making it happen. But believe it is, don’t write it then begin to doubt if it will. Believing it is and trusting in the universe to create the outcome is essential.
You don’t have to wait to the end of the day, or the morning to express your gratitude you can say thank you as events unfold.
I often say thank you for getting home/ to where I am going, if it looks like it is going to pour with rain. As generally it keeps the rain away long enough for me not to get wet. I also say thank you for keeping me and those in my car safe, along with those around me. That way I ensure I have a safe journey, and at times there have been some hairy moments, which could have resulted in injury. But by expressing my thanks as I start my journey, I am letting the universe know, I expect to arrive safe and sound.
Another way is to express thanks for your day, often times we forget we can appreciate the day ahead, instead of fearing what it will bring.
Saying thank you before helps to tell the universe this is what I want. So it works with you to have a great day. However, one thing to remember is the fact that your thoughts manifest your reality, so if you don’t believe you are going to have a great day, you won’t.
When you doubt, you negate your thanks and cause the opposite to happen. Watch your thoughts!
Always say thank you…
When you receive what you were anticipating, or arrive at your destination safely, or have that great day with positive outcomes.
Even though at times you think well that wasn’t so hot, it doesn’t matter say thank you for the experience and learning you have received. As they say things happen for a reason, even though you can’t see the reason at this moment in time, it will become clear.
Gratitude and expressing thanks is a brilliant way of raising your energy. This leads you to manifest, even more, as it is through your positive thoughts you create your reality!
