Gratitude + Manifestation

Gratitude

With Thanksgiving this Thursday and November having a collective focus on all the things that we’re grateful for, this week I decided to take a behind-the-scenes look at how gratitude plays a crucial role in the whole manifestation puzzle.

In a nutshell, if you wanna bring more of your soul’s desires into your life (of course you do!), you’ve gotta have a mindset rooted in gratitude!

Let’s face it…it’s super easy to be grateful when things are going your way, but what about when they fall short of your expectations? You know…the anticipatory moment when you step on the scale hoping it will be five pounds less than the last time you checked and it’s only one pound less.

How you react to this is what determines your tomorrows!

In this week’s video, I share:

Practicing Gratitude

Gratitude

Welcome back to my blog! It’s been a bit of a longer stretch since the last time we’ve connected, but that just means I’ve covered more ground and have that much more to share this time. =)

This week I wanted to talk about gratitude and why practicing gratitude is so important in this choice to bring about more peace and joy in our lives. A lot of times people might think the advice to practice gratitude is like a slap in the face, especially if the person hearing the advice finds themselves frustrated, angry, or annoyed with the things that are going on in their life. They might hear, “Quit your whining and be happy with what you’ve got!” or “Stop dreaming so big and be humble!”

Regarding the first statement, “Quit your whining and be happy with what you’ve got”, there is a basic truth to the essence of the statement, but practicing gratitude is not about repressing your anger and slapping on a happy face. It’s about cultivating a shift that moves you from anger and aligns you with peace and contentment, which is a more natural …
