3 Easy Ways to Enhance Your Law of Attraction with Gratitude

I’m currently creating a mini course on what I consider to be the actual secret to the law of attraction. It’s fascinating, I can’t wait to share it with you! For now though let’s dip our toes into the water by focusing on gratitude. When most people think of the law of attraction, their thoughts turn toward the question of  what good things  they can attract to themselves and how. If you have taken my courses Create a Law of Attraction Vision Board That Manifests Your Dreams, then you already know the pitfalls of this approach.

The basic premise of the law of attraction is that like energy attracts like energy. So we attract into our lives the people, circumstances, events and so on that most resonate with our deepest subconscious beliefs.  When your focus is on what you don’t have you look to the law of attraction to help fill the void.  So really your focus (and dominant underlying belief) is based on  mindset of  lack. A lifetime of conditioning to think this way has made it second nature for most people. However, it’s super easy to shift your thinking and your mindset to one of abundance by focusing on gratitude. 

Here are 3 Easy ways to engage the power of gratitude in your daily life

1.       Share gratitude on the hour. How many times a day do you complain? Think about even the smallest comments and complaints that you make all throughout the day. Again this is second nature to us, we learn by being immersed in a society where everyone is doing it. To turn that around and shift your mindset, thoughts and conversational habits to one of gratitude it just takes a little conscious effort and then it soon becomes automatic of subconscious.   To do that, stop once during each and every hour that you are awake and share gratitude. Notice something (however small) that you are grateful for and share it with someone. Perhaps you will reach out thank someone for something they have said or done, in person or via email, text etc.). Or maybe you will just let someone know about something or someone in your life that you are grateful for (which also teaches them by example to be more grateful).

2.       Write a daily gratitude list. Toward the end of each day make a quick list o a half dozen or so things that you are grateful for from your day. This has several benefits, it helps you to build your neural network of positivity in two ways. First, it forces you to look deeper at even the smallest of things to be grateful for which enhances your positive mindset. The process of writing (rather than just thinking or saying) also creates a more dynamic and well anchored network of positivity as well.

3.       Breathe in Thank You breathes.  Stop frequently to really notice all that there is  around you to be grateful for. Take in a deep breath and just say in your mind “thank You” as you notice something around you that you are grateful for. That might be the warm sunshine on your shoulders, the  wonderful smell from a nearby bakery wafting through the air, the smile on your child’s face as they lean over to lace up their shoes, the delicious toasted everything bagel you are about to enjoy, the extra 5 minutes in your hot shower.. the list goes on and on!

A short daily practice of gratitude, visualization and meditation does wonders for updating your mindset and activating the law of attraction in a positive way.   It’s super powerful, fun, uplifting, and requires practically no effort at all. My mini course, Create a Law of Attraction Mindset includes a 15 minute guided audio program that walks you through this series each day in just 15 minutes!

How to Stop Negative Thinking

Learn how to stop negative thinking.

Learn how to stop negative thinking.

In preparation for my new course, Miracle Space, I’m doing a three week series to share some of the ideas and topics that we will explore in it. Be sure to follow my Instagram and Facebook pages to see even more from the series.  Sign up for my newsletter to be the first to know when enrollment opens.

Your mind is an amazing and powerful machine that is running your whole entire life. You gather new information through your neocortex. Your limbic brain processes emotions and sends the chemical signals for those emotions out into the body (we need to talk more about this later), the cerebellum stores and process the thought data base of your subconscious. In fact the subconscious mind is responsible for 95% (or some say more) of everything that happens in your life. How you process ideas, make choices, speak, behave, interact, feel, etc are all the end result of whatever you currently have tucked away in there (points to head).

I realized it was not enough just to stop the negative thinking and now I know why.

Its stands to reason then that you might want to evoke some conscious awareness and control over the data in your subconscious mind. A big issue for many of us is the constant hum of negative thinking. I know I went through a phase where I stopped and said “I’m here” every time I had a negative thought. Well needless to say I was driving my car yelling “I’m here.” In the shower… “I’m here.” You get the idea. I realized it was not enough just to stop the negative thinking and now I know why.

Use visualization to create positive thinking.

You too might find yourself frequently ruminating about past or potential future outcomes or situations. When this happens are you being less positive and hopeful than you might like to be? What’s worse is that the more you do it, the stronger it gets. “It” being the negative status of your subconscious mind. That’s just neuroscience. The neural connections and pathways that you use most frequently in your brain get stronger. No worries though- the way out is the same as the way in. You’ve totally got this!

When it comes to negative thinking, neurologically speaking, if you don’t use it, you lose it! But our minds are addicted to thinking so when this happens; give your mind something positive to work with. Using the conscious “find and replace method” of stopping negative thoughts in their tracks and replacing them with the polar opposite positive variation allows you to rewire your subconscious mind. So for example, if you are anticipating something negative that someone might say in response to an upcoming conversation you are going to have, think about the best case scenario instead. Picture it, make the conversation come alive in your mind, visualize the details and feel the resulting good feelings! Your subconscious mind does not know the difference between real and imagined. In this case you are laying the groundwork for words, choices, subtle body ques and all sorts of things that now offer the opportunity of triggering a more positive experience when the time comes.

The subconscious mind controls the way you think, feel and act. Plant something nice and you grow your life into something beautiful. Keep planting negative thoughts and you’re life grows from the seed that has been panted as well. Your choice!

Daily Gratitude. Try It. You'll see

gratitude.jpg

So most nights before I go to sleep I jot down a list of tiny little things from my day that I am grateful for. Something someone said, or the sound of the kids breaking out in laughter, maybe even just getting a parking spot right in front of the house when I have a carload of groceries. Sometimes I also pick up old lists (like from several years ago) and reread them. When I do, I find I can remember even the smallest of things in great detail and get that same great feeling from them all over again.

Many of the emotions that we feel are directly generated by our thoughts. Our perception about anything, including life in general, is merely the result of what we constantly think about. Taking time each day to fill your mind with reminders of what you are grateful for is an easy way to shift toward and stay in, the realm of positive thinking. Gratitude has been shown to enhance physical health, emotional well-being, careers, relationships and more. Try it for a week, you will be happier and healthier, you’ll see. Here are 26 or so scientific research studies that have found this to be the case: http://happierhuman.com/the-science-of-gratitude/
