Practicing Gratitude For More Abundance in Your Life By Deanna Collins
One of the newest talked about ways to improve life is The Law of Attraction. It is not just a gimmicky way to get the things that you want in your life. The Law of Attraction is about attracting the many things that you want in your life with a little bit of work.
One of the most common ways to use The Law of Attraction is by making a gratitude list or keeping a gratitude journal. There are two basic types of gratitude lists that people make. The first lists what we are grateful for each day. The second type of list incorporates the visioning process.
Movies like The Secret have made popular the vision board. A vision board is simply an illustration of the things that you want in the future. These items aren't necessarily all material. They can be spiritual, emotional, relational, etc. As you are visioning, express your gratitude. Feel gratitude and act "as if" you have already your goals.
Today's society has helped to hard wire us to be negative about the things that we do not have yet. Based on the Law of Attraction, acting this way actually attracts more negativity to us-like attracts like. With practice, "acting as if" and feeling gratitude towards those things that are in our vision will become more of a habit.
The most important reason that everyone should have a vision is that you attract what you send out into the universe. If you send out positive thoughts and feelings, then you will receive these same feelings back. As we share with the universe our goals and our gratitude towards them, we are attracting those very goals to us. This simple process can help you to achieve the abundance that you have always wanted in your life.
A gratitude journal and a vision board or journal is a place where you can keep and organize your goals and your thoughts on them. Once you have written your goals down, you can continue to read them every day and feel gratitude towards them. This will help to keep you focused on your goals. With everything going on through the course of your day, it can be easy to forget the goals that you have set for yourself. A gratitude journal can serve as a helpful reminder to keep you on track to achieve your goals.
Keeping a gratitude journal is one of the most important things that you can do for yourself. The action of writing words down on paper will help you take the first steps to achieving the abundance in your life. Whether your gratitude journal is kept online or in a leather bound journal, this will truly be the one tool that will help to change your life. Sit down and begin to keep your gratitude journal today to see a change in your life from this day forward.
