Don’t Leave Your Gratitude Behind

Here in the US, the Thanksgiving holiday has come and gone. If you celebrated Thanksgiving, I hope your day was filled with gratitude, joy, love, and, oh yeah, lots of great food!

You could say that Thanksgiving is the holiday of Deliberate Creators. Gratitude is one of the most potent vibrations for attracting your desires. Unfortunately, for many people, Thanksgiving is the beginning and end of their connection with gratitude.

As the Deliberate Creator of your life you cannot leave your gratitude behind with the Thanksgiving holiday. In order to create the life you desire gratitude must be one of your dominant thoughts at all times.

The Native Americans, for whom the Thanksgiving holiday holds mixed messages, lived in a state of gratitude. For them, giving thanks was, and for many, still is, a way of life, a moment-by-moment attitude.

Just imagine, for a moment, that instead of needing a holiday to remind us to be grateful, that gratitude was our natural state. Imagine that with every breath we felt grateful for the air around us, with every step we gave thanks for the ground upon which we walked, with every bite of food we ate, we offered appreciation to the plants and animals who gave their lives so that we might continue to live and grow.

Just imagine how you would feel. Imagine how your life would be different.

Let Thanksgiving be a reminder a life of Deliberate Creation is meant to be lived in a state of gratitude. Gratitude is not a one-time event. It is a way of being.

The master of attraction lives in a state of appreciation at all times and for all things in her life. Yes, ALL things. The Buddha said:

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn’t learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn’t learn a little, at least we didn’t get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn’t die; so, let us all be thankful.

And the master of attraction also holds in gratitude those things not yet in his life which he desires. The master of attraction says “thank you” for his desires rather than “please.”

Fill your desires with gratitude. Know that they are already created, even if you cannot yet see them in your life. Your gratitude will draw them to you as surely as a feeder in winter draws birds.

So don’t leave your gratitude behind. Practice the art of appreciation every day. Begin and end your day with gratitude. Share your gratitude with the people in your life. Stop throughout your day and offer gratitude for the breath you take.

Let your appreciation flow and watch your desires grow!
