The Power of Gratitude

The Real Power of Gratitude

You have probably heard about gratitude’s power over your life, but you may need to understand it fully. What does it mean to be grateful? What is the force behind it?

Before you try to grasp the absolute power of gratitude and what it is, it’s essential to understand what it’s not.

What Gratitude Isn’t

If you think that false gratitude is the way to getting what you want, you couldn’t be further away from the truth. False gratitude does not manifest your dreams, and it confuses them. What does it mean to have false gratitude? 

False gratitude happens when you walk around pretending to be grateful when your underlying subconscious is seething, bitter or angry. A perfect example is feigning happiness when an ex is getting remarried or a co-worker who got the promotion you wished for.

Rather than take out your frustrations and send negative energy anyone else’s way, take a moment to recreate the negative vibe.

False Gratitude

When you recreate the negative vibe, you attract more positivity toward you. It’s perfectly fine to be disappointed, remorseful and even jealous, but don’t stay with those negative emotions too long. 

Where Does Gratitude Show Up

Your body knows when you are pretending to be grateful without recreating the negative emotion underneath it. Your body will store those negative emotions and have them show up in disease. 

If you are holding back from expressing yourself, it could show up as a sore throat. If you are bitter, it could show up in stomach issues. 

How to Use the Power of Gratitude

When you learn to practice gratitude on a genuine level, the magic of manifesting shows up, the key word is genuine. Get in touch with something you are grateful for. It could be an incident from many years ago, or it could be the rain.

Whatever it is, find your true, authentic feelings of gratitude and focus on those feelings.

Close your eyes and visualize why you are grateful. If you are grateful for the rain, why are you grateful? Picture the grass growing greener, and imagine the flowers blooming—picture drinking water on a hot and humid day. 

How to Use the Power of Gratitude

Once you begin to focus on why you are grateful and expand on that feeling, you will notice that you are more aware of what you are thankful for in other experiences. It takes some practice.

You are starting a new habit that takes time to form and practice.

Next, try to find gratitude in a situation that is seemingly negative. For example, if you feel like your parent asks too many questions, could you recreate that into being grateful for a parent who cares about you very much?

While the behavior might be annoying, the underlying message is unconditional love.

Once you open yourself up to the power of gratitude, you create endless possibilities.

May your days be filled with peace, love and joy.
