The quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
Cultivating an attitude of gratitude is a foolproof way to happiness. By focusing on our abundant blessings, we leave little room to complain about what we are lacking.
Love and Gratitude
In his book Messages from Water and Universe, Dr. Masaru Emoto found that the words love and gratitude were the most powerful when used in his experiments with water molecules. These two words completely transformed the water molecules into brilliant and beautiful shapes.
As an explanation of this phenomena, Dr. Emoto wrote,” God created the concept of love; and as a representation of the receiving energy, He created the concept of gratitude. So, love is the active energy and gratitude is the passive receiving energy.”
Law of attraction
When our heart is full of gratitude we vibrate at a higher frequency. By expressing this gratitude we activate the law of attraction and are given more to be thankful for. In other words, when your are grateful, your cup runneth over.
The White Angels share the following on gratitude and thanksgiving;
“Fill your heart with gratitude and thanksgiving. Give of yourself, share your talents and serve others. Be still. Be peaceful. Appreciation and gratitude are the codes that activate the law of attraction.” The White Angels
So how do we stay in the space of gratitude and live with a grateful heart? We can begin by counting our blessings. Once you begin, you might be amazed at how many you have.
Start with gratitude journal and at the end of each day write 5 things you were grateful for. This will cause you to reflect on your day and remember the positive aspects. With this is your mind as you close your eyes you will end the day living in the vibration of gratitude and sleep peacefully with a thankful heart.
“If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.”-Meister Eckhart
