Gratitude: The Miracle Feeling
30 tips in 30 days: #19.
The most magical emotion in my life is gratitude, what I call “the miracle feeling.” New Thought teaches a five-step affirmative prayer. First, in my own words, I?affirm the oneness of the cosmos. Second, I affirm my unity with the cosmos. Third, I declare what I want to manifest, visualizing this as a reality in my life. Fourth, I feel grateful my prayer is being and has been fulfilled. Fifth, I let go with faith. This prayer is empowered by heartfelt emotions.
For me, feeling gratitude is the pivot point for manifesting. I can imagine a new reality until I’m blue in the face, but until I shift into feeling grateful, until I tell the universe, “Thank you for my life and the abundant flow of love,” I seldom get what I want. When I adopt an “attitude of gratitude,” I am blessed beyond my imaginings.
Flooding my heart with gratitude also helps me shift out of any negative emotional state tied to negative thoughts. How can I stay angry or depressed if I feel grateful? Taking a few minutes to give thanks for whatever comes to mind — a ripe tangelo, a red sunset, having a roof over my head, anything — raises the vibration of my aura, so my magnetic field shifts, and I attract more things for which I can be grateful. Yes, for me, gratitude is the miracle feeling.
