"Only by living in Gratitude for what you currently have will you create the space to have even more."

Pamela K. Jones

**First, here is a wonderful collection of books that I have selected for your review on the important topic of Gratitude. Enjoy!

http://tinyurl.com/2vskslp

"Think of all the beauty that's still left in and around you and be happy."

Anne Frank

Gratitude is...

"Gratitude and appreciation are some of the most transformative energies that are available to us. The Universe acts much like a giant photocopier - bringing you more and more of what you already claim to have.

Gratitude is becoming consciously aware of all that is there for us in life, and then acknowledging the gift.

Gratitude releases a dynamic current of energy flow of the highest vibrations into the Universe, which magically returns to you in physical form, more of what you are grateful for.

How does this work?

Gratitude works on the principles of the Law of Attraction which states that  "like energy attracts like energy", like a magnet. Energy of a certain quality or vibration tends to attract energy of a similar quality and vibration. 

You attract to you the essence of whatever you are predominantly thinking about. If you are consistently thinking about the good you already have and express your gratefulness for having it, your results will reflect more of that. 

By the same token, if you are consistently thinking about what you do not have, your results will equally reflect that.

Whatever you hold your attention on, you will attract, IF you know how to do it and how to apply it in your life with exact precision and how to use it with 100% accuracy. 

When used properly, it is absolutely infallible, as predictable as gravity, because it is a Universal Law that cannot be changed.

Having an "attitude of gratitude" AND practicing gratitude, has several major beneficial effects...

It will change your life from lack to prosperity...

From sickness to health & harmony...

From struggle to abundance & quality of life...

It will help you focus on what you want rather than on what you do not want...

It will raise your "feeling good" vibration and...

help you remember how good your life REALLY is!

You will feel abundant & naturally produce more abundance in your life.

You get to know yourself better.

Brings out your natural beauty & wisdom.

Helps you identify your values.

Reveals the depth of who you are.

Is life empowering.

Supports you to detach & let go of the past.

Is fun, playful & can be humorous.

Creates more positive results in your life.

Improves congruency and integrity.

Brings about turning points in your life.

Helps you achieve balance, clarity & peace of mind.

Helps to recreate your self.

Changes your state of consciousness.

You move out of reactionary emotions & take charge of you personal energy."

Gratitude Attracts More Of What You Desire

By Enoch Tan

Gratitude does not need explanation, you know how to be grateful. But did you know that gratitude brings you more of what you appreciate? Gratitude speeds along the manifestation of your desires. Gratitude attracts what we desire. The universal law of attraction says that we will attract into our life the things we think about and focus on. When you are consciously aware of your blessings, and are grateful for them, you are focusing more clearly on what you do want in your life and are attracting more of those things into your life. Gratitude is a very powerful emotional energy that you must project in the course of manifesting your desires.
 
When you find things that you appreciate and you use them as your point of focus, your world has to get better in every area of your life. Every time you flood your mind with appreciation or gratitude you attract more of what you desire. Look around you right now. What can you be grateful for? Get into the authentic feeling of true gratitude. Find something, anything, to be grateful for right now. When you are grateful, you’re in a high energy vibration that will attract more things to be grateful for and more good things will come to you magically, drawn in by your feelings of gratitude. The emotion of joy attracts conditions of joy.
 
Gratitude sends out the message that you already have what your desire. You must always at all times think in terms of already having the object of your desire in your physical reality. Along with those thoughts should be the feeling of the most intense gratitude for what you have already received from the universe. Gratitude makes the object of your desires a real, tangible aspect of your own reality, and the more real it is to you the sooner it will manifest into your personal experiential reality.
 
Gratitude conveyed with genuine sincerity brings you more into harmony with the universe, and with it you become an even more natural creator of your desires. Those people who are completely aligned with the Universe, The Source, God are natural creators who live what seems to others like a charmed, magical life, instantly manifesting anything at all into their own reality. Such people are true Magicians, wizards and creators, and nothing is impossible to them.
 
Never take anything at all for granted. Always feel deeply grateful for everything that happens in your reality, regardless of whether you consciously attracted it or whether you perceive it to be positive or negative. In the grand scheme of things everything that manifests into your physical reality is directly for the benefit of your own personal evolution, and you should be most grateful for it whether you consciously brought it into your own reality or not.
 
Watch how you respond to the little that you receive. Do you feel dissatisfied thinking that it’s nothing? When you think of something as nothing, it becomes nothing and you attract more of nothing in your life. But when you rejoice and give thanks as if the little were a big deal, it starts to become a big deal. When you give thanks for something, you bless it. It becomes better in quality and quantity until it builds up as a flood of abundance flowing into your life. Give thanks for everything.
 
Being deeply grateful also helps to ensure that you never convey the energy of dissatisfaction, which is a very negative energy, and therefore from a physical perspective a very destructive emotion. Dissatisfaction, ungratefulness or unhappiness will send the wrong energy into the universe, which will in turn react with reciprocating those negative emotions with more of the same. So whatever you feel dissatisfied, ungrateful or unhappy about will appear into your physical reality even stronger than ever, creating a vortex of negative energy with corresponding negative effects. Negative emotion is only meant to compel you to take correct action to change the situation. It will only become worse if you only feel those emotions but do nothing about it or worse, take the wrong actions to make the situation worse off than before.
 
Conversely, those things that you feel extremely satisfied, grateful and happy about will create a much higher, positive vibration, attracting more of the same into your life. The universe always naturally moves in the direction of expansion and evolution, and never of contraction or destruction, so positive emotions are always much more powerful than negative emotions even though they are both energy with corresponding effects. There is a difference between saying “I wish I had more” and “I wish to have more.” The former comes from a state of unhappiness but the latter comes from a state of happiness, while desiring more.
 
What you give thanks for multiplies. Bless the little and the little becomes a lot. What you appreciate, appreciates in value. What are you are happy about flourishes. When you feel good, you would do things that would produce positive results. The more good emotions you feel, the more positive actions you will make and therefore create more happiness in your reality.
 
If you choose to use prayer to help create the things you most desire in your life, then you must pray in the right way. A prayer that begs, pleads, wants, or wishes for things, will produce the experience of you begging, pleading, wanting, or wishing for those things. Never beg or want for anything. This request is a statement of lack which produces the experience of you wanting the thing you desire, not having it. The most powerful prayer is a prayer of gratitude. Thank God in advance for those things you wish to create because, in essence, they have already been created in thought.
 
The biggest key to creation is thankfulness in advance. To be grateful before, and for, the creation. It is the sure sign of mastery. All masters know in advance that the deed has been done. To feel sincerely grateful is to be in tune with the universe and with the truth that everything you truly desire is already provided. An attitude of gratitude is the key to ultimate success. Why? Because the more grateful you feel for what you have, the more the universe wants you to have. An attitude of gratitude opens the floodgate for more to come into your life.
 
Giving thanks is the same as giving anything else. Do not give for the sake of getting. When you do so, you will be giving with the vibration of lack instead of abundance. Do not give thanks in order to get something. Be thankful because you are thankful. Be thankful because you know you already have what you desire. What you want is already created in the nonphysical plane and therefore it cannot fail to come through. It is the same as giving. You do not give in order to get. You give because you love. But give knowing that you will receive more from other sources in order to give more. Be thankful knowing that you will get more of what you are thankful for.
 
The most important and powerful emotion of all which is also the emotion behind all creation is love, unconditional love. The more emotion you can infuse your conscious creation with, the more successful you will be in manifesting it and sooner. Not only that, but if you can maintain these high states of emotion, you will find your life will be “magically” and “miraculously” transformed. The natural state of the universe is a constant flow of “Well-Being”. As humans, aspects of the divine, we can either allow the flow of Well-Being, or deny and block it. Negative emotions are contractive and will block Well-Being. Positive emotions, in particular unconditional love will open us up to the flow of abundance of the universe. When you are in a state of gratitude, you are in a state of receiving God’s love.
 
The key is to be grateful before you have manifested your desire because from that from that space your gratitude prayers bring in the energy which will soon materialize into your dreams and desires. The secret to getting what you want is to totally appreciate this moment. When you are grateful for this moment, then whatever is next for you will emerge out of this moment. You’ll be inspired to take action of some sort that will lead you up. But the only way to get to the next level is to live in this moment with gratitude. Be and feel grateful for everything. You will amaze yourself as you miraculously manifest more and more of what you desire in your life.
 
Bless every experience. See the silver lining in everything. Blessing every event, even the so called bad ones sends positive energy into the universe to recreate the negative experience into a positive one. Why? Because by blessing a negative event, you are putting positive thoughts about the event into the universe and positive thought energy creates positive outcomes. When you bless something, it’s effect on you becomes good instead of evil. That is why it is good to bless your enemies.
 

When you focus on the good, it creates positive emotions in you which attract positive conditions in your life. Always believe that whatever is happening is actually a good thing, especially in the bigger scheme of things. Rejoice continuously. Be grateful in advance for that which you choose to create, and bless everything, and your life will truly be a blessing for you and for others.

Mentally Unite With Your Desire By Giving Thanks For It

By Enoch Tan

You do not receive the things you desire. You receive the things with which you mentally unite yourself with. Your desire pulls the thing to you but you must put yourself in a state of vibrational harmony to fit it into your reality. You mentally unite yourself with the thing you want by feeling it as yours and giving thanks for it. Gratitude is the key to uniting with what you desire. You can only be grateful when you feel in possession of something desirable. That’s why you have to rejoice and give thanks before having.

When you give thanks for something you want, you acknowledge possession of it before it is actually manifested visibly. What you desire has already been created in the invisible realms. You have to mentally unite with it in order to bring it into the physical realm. To unite is to become one with. When you mentally unite with a desire thing, you cause both inner and outer worlds to become one and thus the image will become materialized in the actual. Gratitude clears the illusion of separation and manifests.

When desirable things come into your life, it is because you have mental unity with them. When undesirable things come into your life, it is also because you have mental unity with them. You may think that you do not mentally unite with the things you don’t desire. But what is your attitude towards them? If you think that sickness, poverty and unhappiness are things that happen to you and you got no choice but to experience them, then you are uniting with such things. You must change your mental unity.

Just as you can mentally unite with things, you can also mentally separate from them. See sickness, poverty and unhappiness as untruths and believe that you can don’t experience them. While others believe they cannot help but experience those undesirable things, choose to believe that you can experience what is desirable instead. You must mentally separate yourself from those things you don’t desire and mentally unite yourself with the things that you do desire. You do so by switch your focus of mind.

You cannot have a fear thought and a power thought at the same time. You have not been given the spirit of fear but of power, love and of a sound mind. Power is the first key to experience universal love, goodness and wholeness. Switch your focus from fear thoughts to power thoughts. Think in terms of power instead of powerlessness. Think that you have the power to create what you desire and to change what you do not desire. To create is to manifest power. Uniting with your desire is an act of power.

All desirable things exist in original mind. But to experience them in the plane of creation, mental unity with original mind is required. The plane of creation is a lower level of mind. In is a plane where the mind can feel separate from original mind and all things belonging to it. All truth exists in original mind and does not require exertion of it to be real. When truth is to be experienced in the plane of creation, it must be exerted. Light is manifested in the plane of creation through the declaration of truth by the will.

Mastery of the world is attained by harmonizing with the higher plane in order to rule the lower. The higher plane is the higher self or original mind in which all laws of the universe exist. The laws of the universe are the ultimate truths of reality. They are all in accordance to the divine nature which is love, joy, peace, perfection and power. The only place by which truth can seem to be distorted is in the physical realm which is also the realm of illusion. It is illusion because it is only a reflection and not the reality.

The physical realm can reflect truth and it can also reflect untruth. The ultimate reality is invisible and changeless. It can only be known by realization of the divine nature. We can alter the reflection of our physical universe by changing what we unite with in mind. You must polarize your consciousness on the higher plane in order not to be a victim of the lower plane of conditions and phenomena. This requires exertion of power. Only those who choose to exert power will manifest power. You create your reality.

No one else will create your reality for you. Not even God. The very fact that you possess freewill makes you a creator. To have the power to choose is to have the power to create. If you were not meant to be a creator in the likeness of The Creator, you would not be given freewill. Therefore your very purpose of existing is to create your own reality. You are like an artist painting your own picture for all to enjoy. There would not be many different art if there were not many different perspectives of different artists.

It is quite right to unite yourself in mind with the common class, for they are the very best class in mind and morals, but you do both them and yourself a wrong when you unite yourself with their circumstances. They ought to be in far better circumstances than they are, and you should unite them to those better circumstances in your mind. The common class do not have to get along with common things, only so long as they choose to unite themselves in mind with the common things instead of better ones.

When the common class learn to mentally unite themselves with the best things, there will soon be an end to common things. No more of them will be made. The best things are the superior solutions in life for health, love and power. The superior solutions override the need for the inferior solutions. Much of the common things or inferior solutions exist because the common class or the masses unite themselves with such things. To create a magical life is to defy consensus reality by uniting with the best.

"Be grateful for whoever comes, because each guest has been sent as a guide from beyond."
