How gratitude works with the Law of Attraction

When it comes to the law of attraction, Gratitude is very important.  If you have a firm understanding of this very powerful law, then you will know just how much giving thanks for the things in life that you get to experience and enjoy are to manifesting more.  By itself, gratitude will put you in a higher energy vibration.

Gratitude will reduce stress, and provide the confidence we need to achieve our goals, and set new ones.  It can help us break through our own boundaries to reach new highs that we never knew existed.  What makes this difficult to do is turning it on like a switch, especially during a moment of weakness, or trouble. 

Understanding the Law of Attraction and Gratitude

It’s important to know that gratitude is as much of a law of attraction exercise as the receiving part.  Gratitude will raise your vibrations and bring you into harmony with those things that you desire the most.  Keep in mind that everything is energy.  The Law of Attraction works in terms of energetic frequencies and gratitude will emanate the highest frequencies.  Gratitude sends a message of excitement, satisfaction and a feeling of being content. 

“The universe doesn’t hear what you are saying. It only feels the vibration of what you are offering.”

 – Abraham Hicks

If your focus is set on the things in life that you want, align your actions with the idea of already having what you want. Then, you will notice that you are getting closer to your goals, and your desires. New opportunities become available, new paths begin to materialize, you meet people that can change your life, and if you allow it…your life will change. Once you decide what you want, then choose the best action that fits.

“Your actions have to be the best fit to support your ideas. In other words, if you want to become a decorated police officer, then committing crimes doesn’t really support that idea.”

Gratitude is the Best Attitude

There are people who live great lives, and also those who could use a break.  The ones who complain the most all have one thing in common… they lack the gratitude for the things in life that they’ve already received.

As humans, we aren’t always going to do things the right way…or take the easiest route to our destinations.  We often lack the vision or see the value in something…until it’s gone.  There are so many things we can be grateful for, that we commonly take for granted.  Such as the ability to access the internet, and everything above that.

The Big Secret Behind Gratitude and Manifestation

Author, Jack Canfield put it so eloquently, Think of the universe like a very generous friend.  One who will grant your every wish.  You ask, and it gives. If you are thankful for the things it has given you over the years, it’s likely to want to give you more and more.  But how much of a giving mood do you think that friend would be towards an ungrateful person, who never sees the value of receiving every gift he/ she asks for. 

He goes on to say: As bad as you think you have it, there is always going to be someone who has it worse.  Then he really puts things into perspective by saying, if you have a refrigerator in your home, you are better off than two thirds of the people on the planet.  Most people don’t have the luxury of electricity, or clean water, access to food or any of the many things we enjoy and take for granted.

Gratitude in Reference to Energy

The feeling of being grateful puts one’s mind in a very high state of vibration.  This surge of positive energy comes from the experience of being abundant.  The Law of Attraction says that energy flows toward like energy.  In other words, like energy attracts like energy. 

If you place your focus on the things you don’t have, you will experience “not having.”  Wishing for something is even worse.  The intent isn’t to plead to the universe for the things you currently want, but don’t have.  The idea is to choose a desired experience, and be grateful that the universe will deliver the path to it…without a doubt.

Be grateful for what you have. Even when it’s not enough.  Focus on the choice you have made, and be grateful that it’s on the way to you now.  Your gratitude is your expression to the source of all power and life in the universe!  It’s a personal statement that centers on the crucial element that you need for the law of attraction to work in your favor.    

“Your gratitude is your expression to the source of all power and life in the universe!” 

Gratitude centers on the emotional aspect of the Law of Attraction. We send out three different types of energy out into the universe. The first being thought energy. This is very powerful in itself, but when that aligns with our emotions and actions, manifestation occurs swiftly. Remember that everything is energy, and you are pulling the things you focus on to you like a magnet. You can read more on the power of being grateful here.
