We have had many posts on GratitudePlanet about the power of Gratitude and Appreciation, and if you have been a member of the GP Community for even a little while, you have probably experienced the magic of these vibrations working to expand and improve your life. When your “go to” vibration is an attitude of gratitude, you have found a magical way to harness the power of Law of Attraction to your greatest benefit.  But why is feeling grateful and appreciative such a powerful state to live in? It is really all about how our thoughts, feelings, and actions work to attract things to us.

Some people work really hard at everything they do. They let their actions do their talking, and these people expel a great deal of energy making their world come together. Sometimes they achieve quite a bit, but often at the expense of their health and wellbeing. They might be really rich, but they might not have the vibration to enjoy those riches, or the health to express the prosperity. I know other people who do a great job trying as hard as they can to just think positive thoughts. These people can also get some great results from their positive focus, but they also tend to see their thoughts as more powerful than their own actions…they worry that if they “let down” from their positive thinking, they will fall and suffer something unpleasant. They become a prisoner to their own thinking. The most successful and happy people seem to be those who understand that while your thoughts and actions matter a great deal, your greatest power resides in honing your feelings, and finding ways to feel better throughout your day. Feeling good is the third piece of the puzzle of creating and attracting the life you have always wanted. How you feel determines you average vibration, and hence, your point of attraction that Law of Attraction is responding to. Balancing thoughts, feelings, and actions can be considered the “Art of Living Joyfully.”

Gratitude and appreciation are easy feelings to expand, but it takes just a little effort at first until you get some vibrational momentum. I like to think of these feelings as a “set point” of vibration or a kind of “default setting” that I automatically engage whenever I can. Optimism is a wonderful tool for gratitude and appreciation, and looking for the best in any situation will give you raw material for feelings of gratitude. Try this today: Before you take action in any direction, give thanks for everything you can think of, and then milk it for all it’s worth. Let your thoughts guide you toward everything that is working well for you. If your mind wanders to problems, turn to solutions, or just redirect to another appreciative thought. In a short time, you will have a desire or inspiration to do something: so take action now! In the doing of the action, return to your set point of gratitude and see the best in the action. Enjoy the little things you are doing, and look for the mystery and magic in what may seem otherwise like a mundane or simple task. See if your attitude of gratitude can inspire yet another action. If not, stop and bask again in the joy of your appreciation for what already is. Let this cycle of think, appreciate, give thanks, and act be a dance of joy that moves you to greater and greater connection in the Vortex. Watch how your life improves way more than when you just acted, or just sat and thought positive thoughts. Let Gratitude be your Attitude more often today. You will experience the most positive transformation imaginable, and then you will have even more to love and appreciate. Enjoy this most amazing day!  Chris-GP

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.
