This poem has inspired me so much over the years. Anytime I read it, I get choked up. I played small for so many years. I didn’t even realize what I was doing until I had major health issues … Continue reading
“It’s only with gratitude that life becomes rich.” Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945) Lutheran Pastor Gratitude is riches and complaint is poverty; it’s the golden rule of your whole life, whether it’s your health, job, relationships, or money. The more grateful you … Continue reading
“Whoever has gratitude will be given more, and he or she will have an abundance. Whoever does not have gratitude, even what he or she has will be taken from him or her.”
If you don’t take the time to be grateful you will never have more, and what you do have you will lose. And the promise of the magic that will happen with gratitude is in these words: if you’re grateful you will be given more, and you will have an abundance!
Gratitude operates during Universal law that governs your whole life. According to the law of attraction, which governs all the energy of our universe, from the formation of an atom to the movement of the planets, “like attracts like.’ It’s because of the law of attraction that the cells of every living creature are held together, as well as the substance of every material object. In your life, the law operates on your thoughts and feelings, because they are energy too, and so whatever you think, whatever you feel, you are attracted to you.
If you think, “I don’t like my job, I haven’t got enough money, I can’t find my perfect partner, I can’t pay my bills, I think I’m coming down with something, he or she doesn’t appreciate me, I don’t get along with my parents, my child is a problem, my life is a mess, or my marriage is in trouble”, then you must attract more of these experiences.
But if you think about what you’re grateful for like, “I love my job, my family is very supportive, I had the best vacation, I feel amazing today, I got the biggest tax refund ever, or I had a great weekend camping with my son, and you sincerely feel the gratitude, the law attraction says you must attract more of those things into your life. It works in the same way as metal being drawn to a magnet: your gratitude is magnetic, and the more gratitude you have, and more abundance you magnetize. It’s the Universal law!
You will have heard sayings like, “Whatever goes around comes around,” “You reap what you sow,” and “You get what you give.” Well, all those sayings are describing the same law, and they’re also describing a principle of the Universe that the great scientist Sir Isaac Newton discovered. Newton’s scientific discoveries included the fundamental laws of motion in the Universe, one of which says:
Every action always has an opposite and equal reaction.
When you apply the idea of gratitude to Newton’s law it says: every action of giving thanks always causes an opposite reaction of receiving. And what you receive will always be equal to the amount of gratitude you’ve given. This means that the very action of gratitude sets off a reaction of receiving! And the more sincerely and the more deeply grateful you feel (in other words, the more gratitude you give) the more you will receive.
“When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food and the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies within yourself. ”
