‘If you’re thankful for what you have, you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you’ll never have enough.’Oprah Winfrey
When we’re grateful for what we have, our focus is on gratitude. We know that wherever our attention is, that’s where our energy is; our energy amplifies whatever we focus on. When we focus on our light, we amplify our light. When we focus on gratitude, the cosmos returns the energy like-for-like, meaning that we then attract more reasons to be grateful. Having an attitude of gratitude makes for a happier, healthier life!
According to research scientists at the HeartMath Institute in America, having an attitude of gratitude is one of the quickest ways of raising your energy vibration and achieving heart coherence (where the brain is in alignment with the natural rhythms of the heart). This is achieved through developing, practising, and maintaining elevated emotions such as joy, gratitude, love, compassion, thankfulness, and care.
‘Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.’Dr. Wayne Dyer
When we speak highly of ourselves, we build our self-esteem. When we criticise ourselves, we leave ourselves feeling vulnerable. If our inner dialogue is continuously negative, then our emotional state will be negative too. When our body’s in a constant state of stress, we’re more prone to illness and disease. If, on the other hand, our internal dialogue is positive, then we’re likely to feel stronger in our sense of self. As a result, we’re more resilient and less threatened by other people’s negativity and less defensive in our response, resulting in a much calmer approach to life and living.
Combining The Two
When we combine positive self-talk with an attitude of gratitude, we can bring about profound healing shifts on every level and layer of our being. The best way to do this is when we’re in a meditative state. The meditation that follows is designed to do just that.
Taking my awareness to my heart centre, I acknowledge my light within. As I step into my light within, I raise my energy frequency to that of my higher self. I breathe this light into my lungs, and I’m instantly aware of the life-force energy that is carried through my breath.
I am grateful for my breath and the life-force energy that flows through me.
With my awareness of my heart centre, I acknowledge the intelligent energy that both informs who I am and helps form me as I am. As I connect deeper with this intelligent energy that is me, I become more aware of the expansion of light within my heart centre opening me up further to this intelligent life force energy.
I am grateful for this light and the intelligent energy that is me.
I feel joyous as this intelligent, heartfelt energy signals health and well-being to my brain, creating healthy heart-brain coherence within me. I am grateful for my brain’s ability to communicate this joyous feeling throughout my body. I bask in the joyful feeling as happy hormones surge throughout my body, filling my body with a feel-good feeling.
I am grateful for my happy hormones.
With every breath I take, I breathe light into the cells in my body. As I do this, I am reminded of my body’s ability to function in an intelligent and precise way so as to help me shed, discard and renew on a constant basis. Doing so helps maintain harmony within my body’s systems and functions, helping me maintain a healthy body.
I am grateful for my healthy, harmonised body.
As I focus on my breath, I become aware of the power and light within me. With each breath I breathe, I acknowledge how this power and light informs and strengthens the protective layers that form my auric field.
I am grateful for my healthy, strong and protective auric field.
As I breathe, I acknowledge how the light carried through my breath informs my internal environment, raising my energy vibration to that of my higher awareness and creating within me a very safe, strong and healthy inner environment.
I am grateful for my healthy internal environment and a more profound connection with my higher self.
As I breathe, I broadcast out onto my external environment and I interpret this though my safe, strong and healthy internal environment. I am grateful for my higher awareness.
As I strengthen my connection with my higher self, I find I can breathe light deeper within. As I do this, I can connect deeper with the intelligent energy that informs who I am opening me up to my inner guidance.
I AM grateful for my intuition and higher awareness.
As I become more intuitive, I find myself responding rather than reacting to life. I also find life becomes less challenging as I’m guided to where I need to be in life and find myself doing what I’m meant to be doing. I also find I can remain more present in the moment and enjoy life to the full.
I am grateful for my ability to be me.
The more I tune into who I’m meant to be in life, the less inclined I become in seeking other people’s approval. I breathe light into being me and into my passions in life. The more passionate I am in what I am doing, the more grounded I become in the moment.
I am grateful for my ability to remain present in the now.
I am happy being me.
I am the happiest form of me.
I love being me.
I love life and living.
My life is blissful, blissful, blissful.
