Gratitude has been referred to as 'magic.' Here's a question, do you believe in magic?
As a kid you likely had faith in the existence of Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, elves, and so on. As an adult, you believe in two certainties--death and taxes.
Wow! Somewhere along the way we lost the spark of living. How can we get it back? In one word--gratitude.
But is the concept of gratitude as easy as it might sound? It is, but it needs to be sincere, it needs to carry deep feeling behind it. Just as saying 'I love you' to someone means nothing without a demonstration of this emotion. Or we thank someone for a gift but then toss it aside. Does that give the impression we're grateful for what we received?
Well, when it comes to the law of attraction, it is important that we are truly grateful for the good we already have in life. However, what is at the root of this gratitude? Is it simply a monotone gesture to the universe, 'oh yeah, thanks' or is it a resounding, 'Wow! Thank you!'
It's important that we resonate with the latter scenario. By making a list of things we are thankful for every day, we shift our thinking to the positive, toward what we want in life. We begin to attract more of this into our life.
