This text was written by Njari Jonhson. I chose to publish her post on gratitude because she writes it so simply and beautifully. Her deep connection and sensitivity to life is felt through her poems but she also writes about her travels and food. You can read more on her blog at http://siannaphey.wordpress.com/.
Counting your blessings
Acknowledging all you receive
Noticing simple pleasures
Being aware of how much you have been given
Changing focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is present
Be grateful for what you have and where you are now
All you have is All you need – right now!
We are like a magnet, what you feel, be it love, fear, hurt, happiness, anger, resistance, joy etc, you are creating a force that attracts and draws you to events, circumstances and conditions in line with what you are feeling. In other words, our thoughts, feelings, beliefs, which include affirmations attract vibrationally what they are sending. When you sincerely express gratitude you draw to you more of what you are expressing gratitude for – your energy becomes harmonious and accepting – and it puts you in a resonance optimal for attracting those energies. When you resist, and not expressing gratitude, you attract that which you are not wanting – the polar opposite.
You choose your emotions and thoughts in every moment. So,choose to focus on thoughts of gratitude and you will in turn train your emotions and mind to respond with gratitude, and draw more abundance and things to be grateful for.”
Thank you for letting me share your inspiring words Njari.
