What are you grateful for?
Changing your emotional state, increasing your vibration and boosting your immune system are just a few of the benefits of experiencing gratitude.
It only takes a few seconds to think of something you are thankful for. Looking around, I am sure there is something you can see right now that you are grateful for. It may even be the screen you are reading this on or your eyes and intellect that you are using to read this.
Making use of your senses makes it easier to identify things that you are grateful for. What can you see, smell, tastes, heart or feel that you are grateful for?
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.” – John F. Kennedy
Naming the things you are grateful for is a brilliant start but to experience the full 3D version of gratitude, you need to take it a step further.
How to embody gratitude for the full 3D visceral experience:
- Bring to mind one thing you are grateful for.
- Why are you grateful for it?
- What does it do?
- How does it make you feel?
- Where can you feel it in your body?
Allow yourself to feel the gratitude and fully immerse yourself in that feeling in your mind and body.
For example: Clouds
Watching clouds makes me feel free. They float through the sky without judgement or expectation. They change form and evolve as they move. They can bring rain which cleanses and nourishes the earth. I can feel my body calming and relaxing as I watch clouds float by. My heart opens as I do so. Clouds can obscure the light at times, changing perspective and shifting sunlight. Sunsets are enhanced by the array of colours clouds display. Clouds can create shade which can provide relief from harsh sunshine or make patterns on the ground. They can make photographs more dramatic or eerie.
