Gratitude powers and fuels the ship. What is the ship? It is you as the captain of your own vessel and what you would like to create with Spirit.
Gratitude is a catalyst for change, through opening more space of higher and higher vibration into your life. It’s like opening the shade of a dark room and allowing the sunlight to kiss all corners of the room. The dark is gone, with only light replacing it.
Gratitude focuses on what is working and affirms that you want more of it. Gratitude magnetizes your manifestations to you with gale force magnetic power.
Sometimes we want things to change, yet allow ourself to get caught up in the day- to-day activities and demands in our life. We can find ourselves mentally wanting to change and not always having the energy to summon feelings of gratitude.
If you are not ‘in the mood’ to feel grateful, try this to shift your energy:
Start with something small and just begin to notice it. Complete the following sentences:
I am grateful for ______________, because _________________ .
When __________ I feel ___________. When I feel _____________,
. B C C
I also feel ____________ because __________________.
. D E
Here’s an example:
I am grateful for being outside right now because the air feels fresh on my skin. When the air feels fresh I feel clear-headed and more energetic. When I feel more energetic, I also feel excited to be alive because I know I am attracting more positive possibilities to me.
Every little positive shift in perspective brings an accompanying shift in positive energy and the energetic signal you send out to the world. Remember, steadily, step-by–step is how the wise tortoise won the race. It is how you incrementally and positively raise your vibration and change your experience, too. It is helpful to surround yourself with cheerleaders who support your endeavors. While no one can be in charge of your energy signal except you, the support of others can help you continue on if you feel tired and discouraged and chart a smoother path to actualizing your manifestations.
