Keep reinforcing the positive things that you have in your life right now. Feel and express Gratitude for the people, things, and experiences that are positive or have a silver lining for higher learning. Reinforce one's commitment to expressing love, goodness and gratitude, and to behave as ethically as Christ would.[1]


Commit to expressing Gratitude

This is a spiritual practice that gains momentum and accumulates energy over time and with practice. The ego will find every reason under the sun why you can’t possibly commit to do this practice every day. Practicing gratitude is like taking the trash out from your kitchen and replacing that by bringing the beautiful flowers from your garden back inside. This practice shifts the energy and vibration of your mind, body and emotional state. Gratitude doesn’t seem to come as effortlessly as grumbling and complaining, which is common for an undisciplined ego mind. Waiting for the resistance to pass is futile and unproductive in setting up new and healthy habits for a positive lifestyle. Just do it.

Even when you are exhausted and can hardly summon up the energy to shift into a feeling and sensation of gratitude, when you have to force yourself to begin, this practice of gratitude still has great magnetizing power. As you move through your day, pause now and then when you remember something or someone in your life that you appreciate. Hold the feeling and think how grateful you feel for having that experience in your life. As you are doing something in the day, cooking breakfast, sleeping in a bed, having time with a cherished pet, as you are in that activity, pause to think and feel, “I am grateful.” Moving through your day with awareness and grace in this way will mean that when you do sit down to write your gratitude list those things will come to your mind. Practicing gratitude changes your vibration and supports your mental and emotional well-being into feeling happier.[2]

Spiritual Strength grows from Gratitude

When we are spiritually strong, we are a fortress of heart based devotion and dedication to serve the highest expression of our goodness as a spiritual being. This heart based devotion progressively builds solid ethics and strong Virtues which are the collective attributes that directly attract the Spirits of Christos.[3]
