Gratitude - Setting Things FreeThe other day on twitter, @privatestudmuff asked me in a humorous way about what I think about before going to bed. As a way of role modeling, by getting into someone's head and finding out what they think about, they can duplicate the results. I believe this is what he was doing (or at least hope so).
My answer was "Things I'm grateful for", and it wasn't the answer he was expecting.
Gratitude is everything.
I am grateful even for having weighed 475 pounds because of all the lessons I learned that stemmed from the experience. It was exactly as it should have been and I'm grateful.
I have a friend on facebook who writes a note every day with 10 things she's grateful for and it's a wonderful exercise to witness.
An affirmation from Louise L Hay in relation to finding a new job sums it up perfectly.
"I now create a wonderful new job."
If you are unhappy with the job you currently hold, you don't have to stay in that state of mind. You can thank that job for all it has provided and affirm "It is now time to create a wonderful new job."
If we show gratitude and set something free, we're not feeding it with negative thoughts and feelings, and keeping it in our energy space to be worked through time and time again. We can thank "it" for what it's provided and let it go...opening the door to new possibility.
What will you create today?
If you're not familiar with Louise Hay, I'll give you a little background. She was diagnosed with cancer, accepted it, but refused to accept the treatment doctors prescribed.
She healed herself by deciding that she wanted a different future and then doing a lot of emotional clearing work on herself.
This is a great 5 minute video of Louise L Hay discussing the effect our thoughts have on what we create.
Be careful what you think, "thoughts create things"
go now, create your life.
