One of my “mentors” is Dr. John Demartini. He is a health professional (Chiropractor), an expert in human behaviour, the mind and body connection, and on the laws of the Universe. He is also a researcher and a bestselling author; he truly is a phenomenal man. In his book, the Gratitude Effect he speaks about Gratitude and the effects it can have in your life. (I highly recommend this book to everyone! It changed my life).
Want to change your life? Start with Gratitude and start appreciating your life and everything you have!
The problem with most people is that they focus on what they don’t have and what they don’t want and what you focus on GROWS! So in order to change your life, change your thinking! By expressing gratitude, you are opening up the channel for more great things to come into your life. (This is not “airy fairy,” it’s science).
Dr. Demartini takes Gratitude a step further and recommends that we should also be grateful for the “not so good things” in our lives, because there truly is a lesson and a blessing in everything that happens, and if we can find the lesson and blessing in the “not so good” things, we will then have the strength to be truly grateful.
Gratitude is a very powerful exercise and gets you into alignment with positive thoughts about yourself and your life, AND it sends out positive thoughts into the Universe which is then reciprocated by bringing more positive things into your reality.
You always have a choice. You can either be a person who is grateful or someone who complaints. Who are you and who do you want to be?
The more gratitude and appreciation we feel, the more optimism, relaxation and overall happiness we experience. Focusing on gratitude shifts our attention away from stress, anxiety and worry and helps us look at the positive side of life.
Decide today to be more grateful and practice gratitude and appreciation and before you know it, your life will become a beautiful expression of gratitude.
