“You have no cause for anything but gratitude and joy”- Buddha
Even the great Buddha was aware of the miracles that the power of gratitude can create in one’s life. Gratitude can create miracles in your life. In this blog, I would love to share the benefits and the way in which you can bring the power of gratitude into use. Behold yourself for an amazing new start to your life through the mighty potency of Gratitude!
There’s so much in this world to be grateful for! So, the first thing you can do in the morning is- Create a list and jot down 7 things that you are blessed with (you have to do this exercise daily). It can either be your good health or even a glass of fresh water. It can be anything. For instance, you are thankful to life for your good health. Write it down, then sit in front of the mirror and read it out aloud to yourself. At the end of each blessing, say ‘thank you!’ Remember, that you need to feel the gratitude from the inside, you just can’t read those blessings for the sake of finishing the session as quickly as possible and then expect to receive the results in the blink of an eye. The outcome of your gratitude sessions will take a little time so you need to be patient. But the results which you’ll soon see will be magical. Beginning your day with a thankful outlook on life is perfect as it generates positive feelings in you and brings about a fruitful change in your life.
You might be aware that your inner thoughts and feelings create your outer circumstances. After practising this gratitude exercise, you will instantly feel happy and optimistic. The more happy feelings you experience, more will you attract circumstances that will make you feel jolly and gleeful. So here is another benefit- your gratitude practise is in turn providing you with more things to be thankful for!
Gratitude not only means a quality of having thankfulness and expressing it, but also appreciating even the smaller things in life. So appreciate people, appreciate nature, and yes- do appreciate yourself (that’s the first and the most important thing to do!) Also, try not to complain, criticise or speak negative words about anyone or anything since this will lead to the formation of negative energy around you and spoil the whole fun and enjoyment that you were experiencing after the gratitude session! Believe me, practising gratitude really works. (Proof- It worked for me!)
I hope you enjoyed reading!
