It goes without saying that it is almost always easier to give than to receive. Imagine receiving a gift unexpectedly. Do your cheeks blush and does your body squirm? Do you have a hard time thanking the giver? It’s because you didn’t ask for it, right?
So many of us are never grateful for the things we think we deserve. But we need to remember to be thankful for everything we get in life. This will take us to the higher version of ourselves. It will connect us to our spirituality.
Don’t use gratitude as a means of getting more gifts, even though we are all guilty of this now and again. If you do that, you are not experiencing a soul connection, but rather a limitation by the ego. If we can really let go of our embarrassment and self-examine, we can truly bond with our higher self.
The Law of Gratitude works like this: You must be grateful for what you receive. If you are, then you will receive more. If you are not, then the giving ceases. It is this grateful state of being that attracts more. Complaining is the opposite of being thankful. Desiring with a grateful heart is the magnet to receiving more of what we want.
When you say, “Thank you,” there is usually an overwhelming feeling of contentment. Negative thoughts will disrupt the flow of energy, creating resistance. Maintaining positive thoughts including gratitude assist in evolving your deepest desires.
So, how can you incorporate more gratitude into your life? Make it a habit to give thanks at the same time every day. Choose a trinket or a crystal that you keep in your pocket and when you touch it, make it a point to give thanks. Or when you look in the mirror, give thanks for who you are and what you have become. There will be a time when you realize there just is not enough time to be grateful for every little or large blessing in your life. Don’t stop giving thanks because of that. Just understand and be grateful that you are in the flow of gratitude.
