When everything seems to be going wrong it’s time to pull out your most powerful tool even though it’s the last thing you feel like doing. The natural response at these times is disappointment, frustration, worry, and fear. These create contraction and very low frequency energy. They also repel all that you need to help you navigate the events and conditions of your life successfully. We’ve heard many times that gratitude is important and helps us maintain a positive attitude. What I’m presenting here is not the usual approach to gratitude.
I’m talking about gratitude, not as a response to something, but as a powerful state of being. We easily feel gratitude when things are going well but that’s the nice feeling on the surface. It’s reactionary more than conscious for most people. When nothing seems to be working in your life you need more than that to turn it around.
Fierce gratitude is not just appreciation. You don’t get there by looking for every little thing in your life you can say thank you for. There’s another kind of gratitude. It’s a state of being of very high frequency. Everything in the universe responds to your energy when you are being gratitude and support comes from all directions. So, how do you get to this state of being? If you’re really struggling it might take all the strength and determination you can muster but the results will be well worth it.
It helps to have a point of reference, ideally one that is charged with powerfully positive emotions. Think of something in your experience for which you feel or felt eternally grateful. Hold an image of it in your mind until your heart begins to swell. Feel that gratitude. Bring your attention into your heart and focus on what you’re feeling. After a short time you will be able to let go of the imagery and focus solely on the gratitude in your heart. Sense the energy of it. When all you feel in your heart is gratitude you’re ready for the next step.
This is where it gets really powerful. See or sense the energy of gratitude within you as a sphere of gold light, shining, bright, and alive. As you take a deep breath in, watch it intensify. Then as you breathe out let the energy sphere expand. Continue intensifying the energy and light as you breathe in and expanding the sphere as you breathe out until it encompasses your entire body. Keep expanding until it surrounds the earth, and then even more, as far out as you can imagine. You can expand the sphere of gold light and energy all the way out to the edges of the universe. As you do, sense your gratitude for the whole universe, the whole of life.
Use this practice once a day and you’ll find that things shift for you very quickly because you have shifted your state of being. The frequency of the energy you are being creates harmony, invites benevolent forces, and opens you to greater possibility. Be alert to new ideas and opportunities, and be ready and willing to act on them when they arise. Life can change rapidly when we commit to a higher frequency state of being. By the way, the physical body responds positively to the frequency of gratitude so don’t be surprised if you see improvements in your health, too. How about getting started now? What are you truly, deeply grateful for?
