Now You Can Have Abundance By Being Grateful
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

The feeling that we all can have is being grateful and that can set in motion so many changes in our lives emotionally, spiritually, and financially. When we have balance in these areas of our life, our health just seems to be better due to less frustration, better eating, more rest and of course less stress.

At one of my yoga sessions last week, we were instructed to pay attention to our breathing, being still and being aware of all that was around us. That experience allowed my subconscious mind on a different level become more aware of all the true abundance around us.

It also allowed me to think about how guilt, fearfulness, and low self-esteem can push forward negative beliefs from time to time. Even more, that’s when times arise, when telling myself that I don’t deserve that prosperity that I desire.

I have to pay attention consistently and not let that stinking- thinking take control of my reality.

We all have our version of prosperity which could be money or material things. In order to have true abundance that is real and long term, there must be balance in our lives. That’s not an easy task by no means, but it is possible.

True prosperity is an experience that we will have in the mind and our thoughts; there is nothing external about it. So in order to experience abundance, we have to focus on abundance. If we constantly focus on lack, that experience will appear more in our lives. It’s a universal law in action so please don’t shoot the messenger.

We can begin to experience more abundance in our lives by first focusing on what we have presently in our lives and appreciate it. This is when gratitude comes in. This is one of the most powerful tools that we have to use in order to achieve the prosperity we desire.

That means that we would be grateful for that old car, bad boss, traffic, cold weather, parking fees, and even television commercials during Sunday’s football game, and the list could never end. We must also know that it can get better, it will get better by being open and connected to the Source and that comes with showing gratitude.

We could simply do this by starting a gratitude journal. You simply write down 5 things every day that you are grateful for. The goal also is to not write the same 5 things as the days before.

We can live the average of 3 weeks without food, 3 days without water, but can only live about 3 minutes without air and there is an overabundance of air to breathe every day. Maybe air should be pretty high on the gratitude journal huh?

The best time to do this is before you go to bed. That action will allow your day to end with a wonderful feeling and smile on your face. One more to add to this list.

Thank you, William! I've been praying gratitude in the evening for a while. Added mornings too! Though I've been in situations where my worldly abundance financially and materially were much more, I've found that now, in different circumstances, I live amidst a lot more gratitude. It's interesting how simpler times are easier to appreciate. Thanks for a reminder... I need to start a new gratitude book. I misplaced mine when friends helped me pack up and place stuff in storage after major surgery. It's probably there! When I'm feeling stronger, will get to see it again. For now, I shall pick an empty one to begin. blessings, Cynthia
