How many times have you woken up and the first thing you did was grabbed your phone and delved into your responsibilities? You see a message, it bothers you for whatever reason and it’s now set the tone for the rest of your morning, and even your day. You hold a cloud over your head and it overcasts anyone & anything you interact with, because well, that’s life and thats energy & that’s the universe. Like attracts like. So you attract more poopy situations and you come to the conclusion that ultimately your life sucks, & if you believe that it does, well then unfortunately you are right. How can something so small as a “thank you” change your entire reality?
Try this instead: You wake up and instead of doing anything else you Think & FEEL about what you are thankful for. If you can’t here’s a few ideas I thought of this morning to get you going:
* I am thankful that I woke up this morning, there are some that didn’t get that chance today.
* I am thankful I can open my eyes and see my surroundings, some people don’t have that ability.
* I am Thankful for the sound of birds chirping or even the traffic & noise that woke me because that means I have the ability to hear.
* I am Thankful I have a hectic work day ahead because that means I have a means to make a living.
* I am Thankful for the aching in my legs because that means I have them & can use them.
The list could go on forever because let’s face it, for everything you do have- there’s someone who doesn’t have that and that for you makes it a blessing, one to be thankful for. And for everything you don't have, there’s someone who has even less!
So how has this changed your morning?
Now you reach for the same phone, you see the same message that would have bothered you- but because you are on a different wavelength of energy, it doesn’t resonate as a negative, because you have literally just listed how much you actually have going for you! Because you have allowed yourself to feel your blessings, you now feel: Blessed. So why would you see this message, this situation, this person or whatever as a hinderance? you don’t. Because you have had a shift in perspective. Is it that simple? Yes. It is that simple. You believe you’re blessed then you are blessed, and it becomes a little bit more difficult for things to change that belief. You then continue your day with a little rainbow following you instead of a cloud, and any interactions you make come more positively and can open you to more positive attractions. Because again, that’s life and that's energy & that’s the universe. Like attracts like! We can always list the things that we believe make us unhappy- but isn’t it easier & so much more enjoyable to list the reasons that make us happy? They both require the same amount of time, but will emit very different energies. Choose happiness always; because remember it is a choice- not a by product!
