Does it ever feel like the things you want just don’t seem to be manifesting? There’s a magic combination that you may not be utilizing: gratitude and Law of Attraction.
If there’s one thing we know, the law of attraction means that the thoughts and feelings you fill yourself with are what you’ll vibrate. And what you vibrate is what you get.
Gratitude Fuel: Why it’s essential
If you want a life that makes you happy, don’t you want to fill or ‘fuel’ yourself with happiness as much as you can?
Of course, we all want to be happy. The question is–how? How do you ‘fuel’ yourself with happiness if your life is less than, well, happy?
The answer is gratitude fuel. Gratitude fuel is anything and everything you do to put yourself in appreciation for even the teensiest, tiniest aspects of your life.
Fueling yourself with happiness – no matter how seemingly unhappy your current circumstances are – means finding things to be grateful for as much and as often as possible.
In fact, your quantity of daily gratitude fuel should be in equal and opposite measure to the negative aspects of your life. In other words, the crappier you think your life is, the more gratitude fuel you should be giving yourself every single day.
How to be grateful when life is tough
Let’s say that the gap between where you are right now in your life (financially, emotionally, relationally, energetically and physically) feels really, really far from where you want to be.
Then you’re going to want to start using everything you’ve got to notice things to thank about. Pull out all the stops and get downright silly about what to appreciate. You may find there are a lot of things you take for granted.
Here are some starters:
- If you see your favorite color, say thanks.
- Every time you have food to eat, say thanks.
- Whenever you walk, sleep, drive, get a paycheck, or brush your teeth, say thanks.
- How about clothes? Isn’t it nice to have enough of them to stay warm in the winter and few enough of them to stay cool in the summer? Say thank you!
- How about the roof over your head when it rains?
- The friendly cashier at the grocery store?
- The happy neighborhood dog?
- The old man who always greets you with a smile?
- Clean sheets?
- Flowers in springtime?
- A clear blue sky?
Make a list if you feel it will be helpful and place it somewhere you can see it often. There are tons of things to be grateful for once you start to think about it. So start to think about it and get your gratitude and Law of Attraction energies on!
