Good Morning! You will have heard people say to count your blessings, and when you think about the things you’re grateful for, that’s exactly what you’re doing. But what you may not have realized is that counting your blessings is one of the most powerful practices you can ever do, and it will magically turn your whole life around! When you’re grateful for the things you have, no matter how small they may be, you will see those things instantly increase. The flipside is that when we’re not counting our blessings, we can fall into the trap of unintentionally counting negative things. We count negative things when we talk about the things we don’t have. When we count negative things they increase too, but on top of that, with every negative thing we count, we cancel out blessings that were on their way. To help you feel more gratitude, you can be grateful to the Universe, God, Spirit, goodness, life, your greater self, or any other concept you are drawn to. When you direct gratitude toward something or someone, you will feel it even more, and your gratitude will have even more power, and create even more magic! It’s the reason why indigenous and ancient cultures chose symbols like the sun to direct their gratitude toward. They were simply using physical symbols to represent the universal source of all goodness, and in focusing on that symbol they felt more gratitude.
So first thing in the Morning or sometime during the day, Count your blessings. You can write out your list by hand or via a tumblr post. Today you are going to make a simple list of 10 blessings in your life you are grateful for.
I am truly blessed to have…….because…..
I am so happy and grateful for……because….
With all my heart thank you for…..because….
Tip: You could also start a Gratitude Jar! Thanking my lovely friend Carolyn for this idea 🙂
After you’ve finished making your list of ten blessings, go back and read each one, either in your mind or out loud. When you get to the end of each blessing, say the magic words three times: thank you, thank you, thank you, and feel the gratitude as much as you possibly can!
- Health and Body
- Work and Success
- Material Goods
- The Universe
The practice of counting your blessings is so simple and so powerful in altering your life, that I want you to continue to add ten more blessings to your list every day for the next 27 days. You might think it could be difficult to find ten things you’re grateful for every day, but the more you think about it, the more you will realize how much you have to be grateful for. Look closely at your life; you have received, and are continuing to receive so much each and every day. There is so much to be Thankful for <3
