Practising an attitude of gratitude serves us on many levels; it allows us to work with, rather than against, the eternal force of the Universal Law of Attraction.

Gratitude may seem like a simple concept that requires little attention. Au contraire! Practising an attitude of gratitude is an essential component of day-to-day living because it is directly aligned with the Universal Law of Attraction. According to this law, you attract what you focus on, and what you focus on expands.

If you focus on what you do not have, you will attract less of what you want and more of what you do not want. This type of focus feeds and nourishes the pervasive thought-virus of “lack mentality”. When a lack mentality takes over your system and pervades every part of your life, it naturally limits the flow of money, relationships, and opportunities; just like a virus. In turn, this virus feeds anger, fear, shame, resentment, bitterness, hopelessness, jealousy, apathy, and many other more potent viruses.

The quickest way to treat and eliminate the “lack mentality virus” and any other viruses that it creates, is to continue expressing gratitude for what you have. The more you focus on what you have, the more of it you will attract, and create abundance in all areas of your life. Changing the focus of your thoughts and actions by practising an attitude of gratitude allows you to quickly and easily align yourself with the natural flow of the Law of Attraction.

Here are five tips to get you started on your journey:

1. Develop a daily ritual to celebrate at least five things that you are grateful for (and mean it). The more you practice this ritual, the easier it will become and the more your list will grow. Soon, you will find magic and miracles around you throughout each day. Imagine how fully alive you will feel!

2. Celebrate your accomplishments. Write a list of at least 10 accomplishments that you have achieved since the beginning of the year and then find a creative way to celebrate them. Writing this list automatically puts you in an attitude of gratitude. You may also choose to celebrate by sharing your list with a friend over dinner, treating yourself to something special, or throwing a party for all of your friends and loved ones to bask in the glory of everyone’s accomplishments. That way everybody is a winner!

3. Open yourself to receive compliments and be grateful for the feedback. Compli-ments are challenging for most people to accept as giving is often easier than receiving. The more comfortable you become in receiving positive words and actions, the more you train yourself to receive in the bigger picture. It opens you to more abundance in a variety of areas in your life which, in turn, creates more gratitude.

4. Practice random acts of kindness. For example, you may wish to consider: replenishing someone’s parking meter; sending anonymous flowers to someone who helped you; writing an anonymous thank-you note to your local schools, police, fire, and rescue for the hard work that they do in the community. You will feel good about yourself and gratitude that you are in a position to do this for others.

5. Forgive your past. When you forgive yourself and others, you are not excusing the action, you are releasing yourself from the pain. When you give yourself the gift of release (forgiveness), you heal yourself. This opens you to receive more joy and abundance, and perhaps even feel gratitude for how your past has served you and what it has taught you. In turn, this expands your awareness about the vast number of things for which you can be grateful.

Practising an attitude of gratitude serves us on so many levels. It also allows us to work with, rather than against, the eternal force of the Universal Law of Attraction. Working against this law creates struggle and breeds lack and limitation, while working with it allows you to create and maintain a permanent state of truth, grace, wisdom, and love at the core of your being. This is a state of authenticity and can be created through a regular practice of gratitude. Being in this state is when you feel truly comfortable being in your own skin and living the truth of who you are and were meant to be. Now, that is something to be grateful for!
