Or, “The tune of the angels!”
Gratitude gets a bad rap as being some sort of “feel-good” thing, but it’s not.
Rather, it is a mindset you can easily employ that sends out the message that ’I already have what I desire’.
The 19th century British philosopher Herbert Spencer wrote, “Gratitude is the tune of the angels.”
The greatest of enlightened beings were grateful in advance for the things they chose to create.
It’s easier to be grateful for what you already have.
See the image to the left; you can feel good about those, right?
But when it comes to the things you don’t yet see, or haven’t obtained, gratitude tunes the intuitive mind, the internal belief meter, and the open heart to co-create them at turbo-speed.
Back in the day when I was deep in my manifestation research, I asked questions about the ‘why to’s’ and ‘how to’s’ of gratitude in several of my conversations.
However, here’s an excerpt from the ’Conversations with God’ series that really hits home for me:
”This place of knowing is a place of intense and incredible gratitude. It is thankfulness in advance. And that, perhaps, is the biggest key to creation: to be grateful before, and for, the creation.
“Such taking for granted is not only condoned, but encouraged. It is the sure sign of mastery. All Masters know in advance that the deed has been done.”
To wrap up this short post today, I encourage you to ask yourself:
Will I commit to stopping in my tracks today for 5 minutes (minimum) — so I can close my eyes, shut out all distraction, visualize and breathe through my visions of the day, the week… even the incredible 2020 I want?
Or, to broaden that out more long-term, in the words of Mary Oliver (via her poem The Summer Day):
“What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”
I would submit to you that answering that question for yourself…. is, no doubt, a priority.
Make it so… and you will find yourself rekindling parts of your inner-power that you let burn out.
- Holistic wellness
- Feeling good
Those are the topics I predict are going to start becoming a national conversation in 2020 — and many years beyond.
Diving into those, I promise, will be the difference between you just surviving (i.e., going thru the motions / aimlessly floating through life) and thriving (having a leveraged-life with meaning, a clear purpose and grander financial resources).
