“Be grateful for what you have… count your blessings”. We have heard this time and again from our elders and well-wishers. But we often turn a deaf ear to everyone. This post is all about less known laws of gratitude, that when practised regularly will bring abundance to your life.
But before discussing the laws of gratitude, let me make this clear, that being grateful is more than just saying “thank you”. You must have the feeling of gratitude in your heart, mind, and soul. The admiration for kindness, beauty and intellect must come wholeheartedly. When you live by the attitude of gratitude, you will get more things in your life to be grateful for.
Do you know gratitude is the secret key of law of attraction manifestation?
Yes, you read it right! But for that, you have to be grateful not just after receiving or manifesting what you want, but before receiving gifts or manifesting or events before they occurred in reality. Be grateful even when you don’t have that dream job, desired money, good health, positive environment or caring partner.
In doing so all the cells, tissue and DNA in your body rearrange themselves with gratitude. It creates a magical attraction, you start finding peace and happiness even before you expect it. In short, gratitude is your magic lamp and when you use it as a force of creation in the universe by being grateful for everything you have and don’t have, that’s when the universe starts making things happen for you. That’s how you start to attract abundance to your life.
So, without much ado let’s get started. Here are ten laws of gratitude that will change your life.
1. Being happy won’t always make you grateful, but being grateful will always make you happy:
It’s really difficult to appreciate a moment while looking down upon it at the same time. If the present state reflects your happiness quotient, it doesn’t signify that you won’t desire more in the forthcoming days. The best approach is to stay calm and wait for things to happen rather than making them happen.
2. The more you are in a state of gratitude, the more you will attract things to be grateful for:
It’s better to be grateful for what we have if we want to have more in the future. This isn’t luck but a surprise for our gratification.
3. Gratitude fosters true forgiveness:
When we say ‘thank you’ in response to any action/behaviour, our approach is more or less shallow. However, when it’s coupled with gratitude something different happens as our experience gets an added dimension. A sense of gratitude not just includes your experience and present state but also encompasses the future while creating a positive vision. This is necessary if we want to move ahead after a setback.
4. Gratitude is all-inclusive:
You may have heard the elder ones saying that good days are the marker of your happiness while bad days give you new perspectives to explore. You need to be grateful for everything that has played a significant role in your life and more importantly, in your development as a ‘human being’.
5. Be thankful for your limitations because it gives you the opportunity to learn:
It’s because we are bound by constraints, we realize our capabilities and limitations. These constraints ignite the learner in us with the hope of achieving a significant milestone.
