A national holiday of Thanksgiving is observed in Canada on the second Monday in October, and in the United States on the fourth Thursday in November. Several countries around the world celebrate a similar holiday – a day set aside to be thankful. The high vibrational energy of gratitude is something that will greatly benefit those who consciously embrace it, and embody it…every day.
Embracing and maintaining the feeling of gratitude produces a high-frequency vibration, creating a perpetual petition for positive experiences. As we embody a living prayer of gratitude, we draw forth good things – like a magnet attracting success.
It is imperative that one is thankful for the good fortune that has surfaced in life, for this will maintain the flow. By the same token, it is also important to be grateful for that which a person has a desire to create in life, as if it has already manifested. Feeling gratitude for something we want to bring forth in our life draws it to us, as a significant point of attraction.
On the other side of this “coin”, when we worry, we draw forth that which we are worrying about. For that reason, when we find ourselves fretting about a possible unfortunate outcome, it is imperative that we replace anxiety with gratitude for what we want to experience in our life, rather than worry about something that we don’t want to manifest in our future. We can do this by being conscious of our thoughts. Our feelings help us to do that: When we don’t feel centered (good), it is an opportunity to take a look at our thoughts, for they will reveal what we are worrying about, enabling us to shift to a new stream of thoughts about something pleasurable. We maintain a high frequency when we are centered… feeling good.
Creating the environment we desire requires us to be conscious; otherwise, we are creating according to our subconscious programs, repeating patterns over and over again. We are creators, and as such, always creating with our thoughts and feelings. Albert Einstein is credited with saying “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” When we allow our subconscious programs to run our life, we are creating the same, or similar, experiences over and over again. We have the ability to change these programs via affirmations, visualizations, and hypnosis (self-hypnosis or hypnosis guided by another) to name a few. It is imperative that we incorporate our feelings during this process, as they are the fuel. In other words, what would if feel like to be healthy? What would if feel like to be wealthy? What would it feel like to have healthy, harmonious relationships? Embrace the feeling! Visualizing, repeating affirmations and experiencing hypnosis without feelings is like trying to drive an automobile without fuel.
Wallace D. Wattles wrote his book, The Science of Getting Rich, over a century ago. The same principles apple today:
First, you believe that there is one Intelligent Substance, from which all things proceed; second, you believe that this Substance gives you everything you desire; and third, you relate yourself to it by a feeling of deep and profound gratitude.
Gratitude alone can keep you looking toward the All, and prevent you from falling into the error of thinking of the supply as limited; and to do that would be fatal to your hopes.
There is a Law of Gratitude, and it is absolutely necessary that you should observe the law, if you are to get the results you seek.
The law of gratitude is the natural principle that action and reaction are always equal, and in opposite directions.
The grateful outreaching of your mind in thankful praise to the Supreme is a liberation or expenditure of force; it cannot fail to reach that to which it was addressed, and the reaction is an instantaneous movement towards you.
We have been given the ability to create our world in harmony with the Divine. I urge you to use your God-given gift… and, of course, feel gratitude for it.
Be joyful, embrace life and thrive!
