GRATITUDE 3‘If you haven’t got all the things you want, be grateful for the things you don’t have that you don’t want.’

Excerpt from my book Returning to Myself – Linda Smith
Gratitude is a law, which if obeyed, pays a good wage. Gratitude when our plates are laden is one thing, but gratitude when our plates are empty is an expression of our internal faith. The more grateful we are for what we have, the more we receive. Gratitude for blessings and abundance attracts more blessings and abundance. It holds the frequency of creation. By practicing gratitude life unfolds in amazing ways and leads us to a deep inner life where purpose and meaning are held in our experiences, and we understand the order of omens and synchronicities that direct our path. By expressing gratitude to our Highest within, life blossoms in magnificent profusion and becomes a cascade of blessings. Deep and profound gratitude is a state of mind and a way of life, a sacred discipline that draws in opportunities, riches and things longed for. Gratitude opens our hearts, adding to life, making it fuller and more profound. By being in a state of gratitude we link to fields of abundance and the panorama of possibilities that lie before us. Gratitude cultivated as a way of life, a way of expressing the joy of our inner being, is a magic ingredient in manifestation. The more heartfelt gratitude we express, the more miracles appear.
‘The more gratefully we fix our minds on the Supreme when good things come to us, the more good things we will receive, and the more rapidly they will come; and the reason simply is that the mental attitude of Gratitude draws the mind into closer touch with the source from which the blessings come.’
