Non-retail signs the holidays are upon us: starting last night, tiny white lights now sparkle in trees throughout the city. From my office window I see snow on the roofs and lawns … well, OK, that started in October. But since last week: Thanksgiving cards arrive in the mailbox!
And online: more blog posts, classes and emails about gratitude.
As far as Law of Attraction goes, is it better to be grateful than ungrateful? You bet. The challenge is in knowing what you really vibrate when you say: “I’m grateful for ________.”
Most of us love to express our gratitude for what we like about our lives. All well and good, as far as it goes.
What we like in our lives tends to be what we label good. Prosperity, loving relationships, health, beautiful places to live…
For most people, this kind of gratitude comes from the ego, whose job it is to label things good or bad. Ego is the big inner judge.
There’s nothing wrong with having an ego. Besides we all have one so why not relax about it.
It’s just that exclusively relying on your ego to determine what you’re grateful for can trip you up.
Here’s how to keep your gratitude vibration pure and shining through the holidays and beyond.
1 – Be authentic. Have you ever caught yourself affirming gratitude for something that wasn’t quite the way you really wanted it? You write, “I’m grateful for my perfect relationship,” ignoring how often you’re habitually irritated with your partner.
Law of Attraction always reads our vibrations perfectly and responds to them perfectly. If you’re not a match to what you’ve been asking for, look for where you hide your true feelings.
Maybe your authentic affirmation might be “I’m grateful for my heartfelt desire to create a more perfect relationship with my partner.”
