What’s Gratitude Got to Do With It?


You may be wondering what gratitude has to do with achieving your goals and improving your life. Many mistakenly think that manifesting abundance is all about visualizing the things they want in their lives. Although visualizing abundance is an important part of the equation, gratitude releases the positive energy necessary to bring your visions to pass.

The Law of Attraction states that like energy attracts like energy. Following this law, all energy released to the Universe attracts energy in the same wavelength. To put it simply, the energy you release is the same energy that is brought back into your life.

The thoughts you hold in your mind determine the energy you attract to your life. By learning to focus your thoughts on the things you have, and expressing sincere gratitude for the blessings in your life, you are sending out a beacon of positive energy. Because like attracts like, your life becomes filled with positive energy and abundance.

If you are like me, you may be wondering if all this mumbo jumbo could really be true. You may even be thinking, “Sure these people think their life is better and think they have found abundance, but nothing has really changed.”

Let me ask this. Even if that were true—which I don’t believe it is—what’s the difference between receiving abundance and feeling like you have abundance? Isn’t it the feeling of peace and comfort that we associate with abundance what we are really seeking? If your answer is “yes” does it matter if your life really changed or you changed your perspective?

I challenge you to give gratitude a try and see what changes take place in your life. Feel free to use the forum for your daily gratitude diary.
