Setting Your Focus with Gratitude

Begin with Gratitude

Thank you for another day. Thank you for the sun, the rain and the gentle breeze. Thank you for all of the love that surrounds me this and every day. Thank you for the coffee in my cup and the bed I just slept in. Thank you for my consciousness of living at The Ultimate Level and for my constant ability to decide to live ultimately. Thank you for every act of giving administered by others and thank you for the grateful receiving experienced by the entire world.

Set Your Focus with Gratitude

As we come together this Sunday, I am so grateful for your attention to my giving of Gratitude and I am so excited to share what’s happening at The Center of Gratitude Radio Show tomorrow, June 19, at 10:00am. The topic is “Setting Your Focus with Gratitude” and I am discussing the purpose of setting goals; the pros and cons to setting “challenges” which don’t often work; comparing diet mentality and behaviors to lifestyle change mentality and behaviors; and I will discuss how to alter challenges and short-term focus into livable, habitual, repeatable, daily lifestyle practices that will maintain the goals that you have achieved, allowing you to constantly set new and different goals. I will also explain, exactly, how to change your approach to setting goals so that once you accomplish it, you maintain it – and never have to strive for the same goal again.

The Ultimate Level

Next week you’ll gain insight into The Ultimate Level – you’ve seen and heard me talk about The Ultimate Level for quite some time and coming up next time at The Center of Gratitude, I will reveal exactly what The Ultimate Level is, how it will elevate your life to an unprecedented degree of joy and everything else you need to know in order to create your Ultimate Life at The Ultimate Level.

Thank you for your gratitude! Have a grateful day!

Make Up Your Mindset with Gratitude

Global Equality

 

Welcome to The Center of Gratitude! As you begin to read this, take some deep, quality breaths in and out and permit yourself five minutes of peace to read this, absorb it and apply it to your daily lifestyle of living with gratitude.

If you would like to further today’s message, it is available as a fifteen minute podcast, featured here.

I hope that you’ve been well and I want to let you know that as we go forward with this month, I have a personal goal to send my life-changing content out to you on a more regular basis. So, please stay tuned for future articles from me as you should be seeing them more frequently!
In today’s article I will:
Discuss the human Psyche and its primary components
The relationship between the conscious and subconscious parts of the Psyche with respect to Gratitude
Teach you how to identify when the Ego is deterring you from manifesting that which you desire
Teach you how to overcome the trickery of the Ego to ensure a steadfast behavior with proper expectation of manifestations
Teach you why knowing about how your human Psyche works is right up there on the importance scale with the vitality of “Beginning with Gratitude.” Today’s content will provide science as well as guidance from me to teach you WHY your thought processes create your life – thus giving you every incentive to both consciously and subconsciously desire creating your Ultimate Life to live at The Ultimate Level. Here we go!

There’s no doubt in my mind that throughout your days, you hear the words “Thank you” expressed to you for something you did. There’s no doubt in my mind that you’ve been instructed by people of influence in your life to “be grateful.” And there’s no doubt in my mind that you’ve felt great about giving to receive the “thank you” and that you’ve felt the desire from within to express gratitude, yet, I am willing to bet that you have a vague understanding of the power of gratitude. It’s okay! It’s not your fault! It’s just that no one ever explains it! Maybe they don’t really know. Pardon this non-scientific expression, but until today, and until I became The Gratitude Guru, Gratitude has been done very halfass.

There are journals for Gratitude. There are notebooks and workbooks and people of notoriety proclaim how being grateful has propelled them into superstardom and fame; yet they never really say how. Have you ever noticed that?

There are few books about Gratitude that explain, in a roundabout way to fill pages, why we should be grateful, but still – I maintain, very halfass. Today, I am teaching you what no one shares. It’s not complicated – so let’s learn and get moving on creating Ultimate Lives!

Today is about science and guidance so let me give you a little science and then my guidance to drive it home. We’ll do a couple rounds of this. Get that pen ready – here’s the first part.

Write this down – The Ego

The Ego is the only conscious part of the human Psyche. The Ego determines exactly what you would associate with its name. Self opinion, information, beliefs, etc. There, that’s the short science. Now for the guidance and how it relates to Gratitude.

Back to what I say all the time – thoughts become things. Write that down if you haven’t – thoughts become things. So since thoughts become things, we have to explore the essence of thought.

Here’s the deal. The Ego is the only part of the Psyche that thinks or operates on the conscious level.

The other components are subconscious, which means that we can access those thoughts at any time, it’s just that they are not the front and center, here and now thoughts that we are addressing second by second. Okay? Not hard. So, today, Ego and Subconscious.

Back to the Science – the Ego gets its messages, as explained by JournalPsyche.org, “The ego is just one small portion of the Self, however; Carl Jung believed that consciousness is selective, and the ego is the part of the self that selects the most relevant information from the environment and chooses a direction to take based on it, while the rest of the information sinks into the [sub]conscious. It may, therefore, show up later in the form of dreams or visions, thus entering into the conscious mind.”

And that, of course, was referring to the incredible Carl Jung and his Model of the Psyche. This means that what we think about in the Subconscious, and focus on, is transmitted into the conscious, where the Ego is functioning, and it’s up to the Ego to choose the most relevant information from the environment and which direction to take based on it. Therefore, if you have a conscious perspective in a negative circumstance, your Ego is going to extract the most relevant info from that situation (the negativity) and direct you to respond to either join in the negativity or to run in the other direction.

The Guidance –
By focusing on what you want just before going to sleep, as New Thought author Christian D. Larson wrote, you take those thoughts and desires into your subconscious where they are focused on until you wake up – often affecting your conscious state, or impacting the Ego where the Ego will choose to encourage manifestation of your creation or destroy it with an alternative feeling.

Allow me to give you an example –
Let’s say you are looking at images online or in magazines of something you want. Maybe it’s a little too expensive for your current reality. But you take the desired thoughts and wishes for what you want into your sleep cycle, into the subconscious; and you wake thinking of it and get excited that you’re going to manifest it because you now know how to do that from my teachings and the teachings of others in my field.

There is one potential glitch – your Ego. The Ego can, if not redirected, jump right to its memories of prior instances where you wanted something that was a little too out of your range and it reminds you of those instances, causing your great feelings to drop and essentially tossing aside any productive, encouraging thoughts that would support the overall manifestation of acquiring that new item you were so yearning for. Our Egos can be real jerks sometimes!

So how do you get around your Ego? You have to know what you really are. You’re a multipart Self, which collectively contributes to the Psyche. The Ego is one small part of the Psyche, while the great majority of your Psyche, of everything that determines your hopes and dreams, is subconscious. So you can either choose to let your Ego win, that little stinker, or you can choose to know better, inherently, and command your Ego to listen up and pay attention because the rest of your Psyche feels otherwise. “And Ego – you better make it happen because we outnumber you!” Soon enough, your Ego will give in and agree that you should get what you’ve asked for. Then by the power of the Law of Attraction, that which you thought about, with great feeling, will be brought about, also delivering great feelings of achievement!

You must MAKE UP YOUR MINDSETwhat do you really want and how do you really think and feel about it? When you hear me to say to you that you are creating your Ultimate Life to be lived at The Ultimate Level, what kind of life components come into your view?

As you have your pen there, write this down – MULO – it’s My Ultimate Life Outline and that is your order form for the Universe that delivers everything you ask for. Get specific, get clear, strike things out if you change your mind or enhance their descriptions; this is all about YOU. You can’t build an Ultimate Life or live at The Ultimate Level if you don’t know what you need or want in order to qualify your existence as Ultimate.

So, Gratitude is more than just being grateful. Just being grateful is a halfass attempt at living ultimately. If you want your individual Ultimate Life, you will create it because you now understand how your Psyche works. It is because of the activity of the thoughts you think on both conscious and subconscious levels that your Ego gets the power to choose. The subconscious doesn’t have that power. The subconscious merely submits ideas and suggestions based upon focused thought and observations and it is the Ego that decides what you receive. This is why you are filling out your MULO while you’re awake and conscious – because your subconscious has submitted ideas and you, along with your Ego, are combing through the suggestions to determine what you would like, what you would not like, what you ultimately desire, etc.

In his book, The Great Within, Christian D. Larson provides my summary for today’s teachings. He wrote, “The subconscious has the power to work out any problem, and find the exact answer to any question, at the time designated by the conscious mind; in fact, no problem is ever worked out by the conscious mind alone; the subconscious gives the real secret in every instance, though it is the conscious mind that makes the practical application.”
Before you go, I want to remind you that you can tune into my podcast every Monday morning (US – Eastern time) at 10:00a and after airing, each episode is available on demand. They each last approximately 15 minutes so you can get centered with gratitude and move forward with your greatness.

The Center of Gratitude Radio Show is here. If you would be so kind as to create a login (it’s totally free and requires no further action) then I can keep tabs on where my listeners are tuning in from, furthering my ability to adjust my approach based on where my followers are in our wonderful world. *Note – you do not have to have a login or an account to hear my program. It’s just helpful to me and I would greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so much for joining me! Coming up on Monday, June 12th at The Center of Gratitude Radio Show, we will celebrate this month of Pride, with a special honoring and remembrance of the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting that is approaching its one year anniversary, by talking about how to access your human pride from “within.” We will celebrate our universal diversity with love and gratitude, as we all deserve to be free to exist as we need to in order to feel 100% whole.

With Light, Love and Gratitude,

Dr. B

Manifested! Now What? Maintaining Your Ultimate Life at The Ultimate Level

 

 

Welcome to The Ultimate Level! With my podcast, I teach listeners all over the world how to improve their lives with Gratitude. If you’re ready to make your life even more ultimate than it is, you’re in the right place.

As a Metaphysician, my primary focus is to teach the Law of Attraction, and my method is founded upon doing so by teaching Gratitude, since it is my philosophy that Gratitude is the Gateway to Greatness.

Coming up in this blog post, I am going to address what to do once you have manifested what you have requested with The MULO. “I’ve manifested what I thought of, now what?”

An important note to remember and reiterate while you read each and every post is that thoughts become things; what we think about, we bring about; and everything we want and wish for begins with gratitude, from The Center of Gratitude.

By the end of this post, we will:

Quickly review The Bergstrom Practice of designing and planning your Ultimate Life

Review The MULO and have a MULO review for your past requests to ensure that they are still what you want in and as your Ultimate Life.

Learn what to do now – how to go about each day, now that your Ultimate Life is a living and breathing reality – further fine tuning and designing your new, ULTIMATE lifestyle.

If you’re new to The Center of Gratitude or new to the Law of Attraction, I use Gratitude as a Gateway to teach the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction says, (write this down), that “Like attracts like” – so essentially, what you think about, you bring about. Remember?

Because what you bring about is a mirroring of what you’ve been thinking, everything in your life exits because of you. Everything my life exists because of me, and everything in everyone else’s life exists because of them.

What you think about, you bring about appears again and again throughout my teachings and you will gain more and more clarity during our time together about how to access the Gateway to Greatness that is, Gratitude.

If you’re familiar with my specific teachings, you’ve no doubt created something that looks like or fully resembles your Ultimate Life, and now that I’ve taught you how to create it, you’re probably wondering what happens next!

Let’s Review The Bergstrom Practice

Part One – Think It.

Begin with Gratitude. You begin with Gratitude by thinking of what you want in and as your Ultimate Life.

Part Two – Design It.

Create your Ultimate Life with Gratitude by designing The MULO (My Ultimate Life Outline). You create your Ultimate Life with The MULO and then by living with Gratitude every minute of every day, you create the energy that acts as the building blocks of your Ultimate Life.

Part Three – Live It.

Living with Gratitude. Your attitude of gratitude immediately becomes your lifestyle because of how you are thinking and feeling based on what you desire to manifest. Your lifestyle creates how you feel and what you think about. Once you become conscious of practicing living with gratitude, you begin to see that you are living the Ultimate Life that you designed.

Part Four – The Fourth and Final – aka “Ultimate”

“Maintaining Your Ultimate Life with Gratitude” This is where we realize, “I did it! Now what am I supposed to do?” This is where a lot of people get stuck. Today, we are emphasizing the Fourth and Final part of Creating Your Ultimate Life with Gratitude! To arrive at the Fourth and Final, very briefly, let’s go back to the beginning.

In the very beginning, I told you that creating your Ultimate Life is never finished. We think of what we want, we design our Ultimate Lives around what we want, we then live our lives with gratitude and our realities shift to allow for the inclusion of our new requests. Finally, our new requests are delivered in and as our Ultimate Lives, which are synonymous with manifestation.

When you are in the Fourth and Final, and there’s a reason why I call it that – when you’re in that stage, you are in the final stage of achieving the specific request that you made. That’s your primary achievement, while you may enjoy the delightfully unforeseen, simultaneously.

Be thrilled that you’ve manifested, but keep in mind that your work isn’t done – it’s only just begun!

In Episode 12 of The Center of Gratitude Radio Show, called Accounting for Your Greatness, I directed you to think of creating your Ultimate Life like a master-planned community. The details and direct parallel to creating your Ultimate Life with Gratitude can be found from the 10:00 minute mark to the end, spanning about five minutes of total listening if you can’t listen to the whole fifteen minutes of the episode.

Each desire that you have, each thing you want to create and each circumstance you want to design for you to soon enjoy – they are all individual projects. They each have four parts and you can remember them by thinking: Think it, Design it, Live it, ULTIMATE!

Ultimate is your Fourth and Final. Keep in mind that each creation that you want to manifest is a four-part process. The Fourth and Final is the most important part of the process, but why? It’s the ULTIMATE step! It’s where all of your focused efforts come to fruition. This is where the thoughts, feelings and beliefs of circumstantial improvement blend together to construct the vision and deliver the finished, or manifested, product. It’s just the same as if you were to newly landscape your patio, courtyard or garden area. You think that you want new plants, you design the space around the new plants and you then enjoy your new garden. But something’s missing! Weren’t there four parts? Oh that’s it! You water! You wouldn’t just do all that thinking, designing and living without nurturing your creation and choose to abandon your new manifestation, would you? What a waste!

(In my episode, Planting Seeds of Prosperity with Gratitude, I talk about designing your Garden of Prosperity and if you would like to listen to that fifteen minute, life-enhancing episode, click here.)

So you see – your Fourth and Final is the ULTIMATE and most vital stage of The Bergstrom Practice. It’s the stage of the process that gives life to your visions, to your thoughts and to your designed-to-be-ultimate life!

Let’s Review The MULO

Rather than make this post unnecessarily lengthy, you can now review The MULO in full, here.

We know that great thoughts paired with great feelings create greatness, so it makes absolute sense that by being conscious and present to think the great thoughts and feel the great feelings continues to create ULTIMATE life circumstances that keep you living at The Ultimate Level.

I hope you’re listening to my podcast, The Center of Gratitude Radio Show, with new episodes airing every Monday at 10. If you’ve not yet listened, no worries! I am re-airing my five favorite episodes for the month of May as I will be on a mini World Tour with Gratitude, promoting my Practice. If you’re in Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Russia, Finland, Sweden or Austria for the second half of May, MAY-be I’ll see you there!

Thank you for your constant support and remember – every day is Thanksgiving when you’re living with gratitude!

A Phantom with Gratitude

phantom-of-the-opera-054qh3r3.k3y

On Saturday, I attended a matinee of The Phantom of the Opera at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, FL, USA. The performance was wonderful and the cast and crew did incredibly well.

Initially, we were seated in the Mezzanine and in the very front row. While the view was unspoiled it came at the cost of dizzying heights and discomfort. We were invited by friends of ours and we hadn’t thought to ask specifics of where we were sitting – we just went with the flow and were grateful that we could attend the show with them.

After about five minutes of trying out our seats and realizing it wasn’t going to happen, we inquired with an usher nearby and she suggested we check with the Box Office to see if we could change our seats.

We went all the way downstairs to the Box Office, waited in a short line and inquired if we could move. After some behind the scenes discussion, the ticket agent returned and shared that for a nominal fee we could move our seats to the center orchestra level, of which she proclaimed were, “great seats!” With Gratitude as my guide, great seats must equal grateful seats and I couldn’t wait to see where we’d been moved to.

With absolute gratitude we paid the difference and breathed sighs of relief that we could sit lower and enjoy the show without fearing for our lives up in the Mezzanine. As the show began, it hit me. These new seats were the perfect seats from which to watch the performance. We had the two closest to the aisle, yet still center and instead of a basketball player sitting in front of me, there sat a well-behaved, short, child. I could see clear to the stage without any obstruction. As it always is and always has been, Gratitude was in charge yesterday and is completely responsible for taking us from dizzying heights to front and center to enjoy what we so anxiously wanted to see.

Thank you, GRATITUDE!

With Gratitude as your guide, what you create in and as your Ultimate Life is always up to you! Start living with gratitude, now!

12 Negatives You Can Eliminate with Gratitude – Part 3 of 3

no-negativity-sign

  1. Poverty
  2. Anger
  3. Frustration
  4. Envy
  5. Hate
  6. Fatigue
  7. Sadness
  8. Lack
  9. Depression
  10. Inequality
  11. Inferiority
  12. Sickness

In this third and final part of this series, I am going to teach you how to adjust your reality to eliminate the negative feelings of Depression, Inequality, Inferiority and Sickness from your life.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Depression. Depression is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Inequality. Inequality is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate feelings of Inferiority. Inferiority is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Sickness. Sickness is a perceived reality.

 

Take a look at these four very unique realities. They are all so different, yet they are all the same. What you look at and recognize as your “life” is your perceived reality. That means that what you are experiencing is “real” – according to you. What is real to you is not exactly real to someone else.

Depression is a big deal, or so it is perceived to be. There are plenty of medications for it, counseling services and other methods of handling what is considered to be a huge epidemic the world over; it’s also quite lucrative for those in the drug industry. Depression, like every other feeling or amalgamation of symptoms, stems from Thought. Depressed thoughts are thoughts that lack spiritual elevation. To think in a depressed manner is to focus on the lack of thoughts or the opposite of thoughts that promote joy and spiritual elevation. When the Spirit is elevated, the release that is experienced is euphoric and so immense that similar thoughts are attracted and similar feelings of euphoria are experienced. Depression is definitely a condition that you suffer from – a conditioned way of thinking that causes you to experience pain and suffering. Depression is a choice; it may not be a conscious choice, but if you’re aren’t choosing joy, you’re choosing its opposite. Contrary to anything else you may have been told throughout all of your experiences with this “condition” – Depression is controllable and it IS fixable – you already have everything you need to eliminate it from your life. Do it!

Inequality is a state, a feeling, a noticeable label and as time progresses, the fight for equal rights among human beings is becoming more and more visible. Throughout the course of recorded history, there has always been bias, preference, segregation, elitism, sexism, racism, phobias, etc. – why? Fear. When groups of people are conditioned by fear, the result is Hate. The fear that is instilled is that the existence of a particular group will disrupt the way of living for other groups. Human beings buy into that notion, they join the masses and the uprisings and they too, want to join the fight to “protect what is theirs.” I’m going to let you in on a little secret. There is plenty of everything, for everyone. There always has been and there always will be. The only ones who can disrupt ways of living are the people who believe that their way of living is able to be disrupted. If your perceived reality is aligned with what I’ve stated above, you will always have plenty of everything – because that’s what you believe to be true in your reality.

Inferiority is a perceived reality. To feel inferior is to allow someone else to seem superior to you in your perceived reality. No one is superior to you – we are all equal. Yes, there are plenty of people who we meet along the way as we progress through life who need gentle reminding that we are all equal and that no one is better than anyone else. To not feel inferior, one has to decide within oneself that they are as awesome as they think those who they used to think were superior to them, are. When you see greatness or superiority in others, take the negativity out of it and ask yourself what it is that you see that makes you feel that they are better, higher or of more value than you. Locate those characteristics, figure out how you can model the great ones in and as your life and move forward. Inferiority will never serve you and it’s best to get rid of it.

Finally, we have arrived at Sickness. As we have seen in the past eleven items, every negative exists because of perception. Therefore, Sickness is no different. Sickness exists in the minds of those who believe that they are always sick, can get sick, etc. Ask the people who proudly proclaim with absolute defiance and certainty, “I never get sick.” See if you can figure out why. What do they do? Health is a state of mind. What starts in the mind is physicalized by the body. This is a perfect example of believing yourself into illness or believing yourself into health.

Whatever you think about, you bring about.

Create your ultimate life “with gratitude” and your life will transform!

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!

12 Negatives You Can Eliminate ‘With Gratitude’ – Part 2 of 3

no-negativity-sign

 

  1. Poverty
  2. Anger
  3. Frustration
  4. Envy
  5. Hate
  6. Fatigue
  7. Sadness
  8. Lack
  9. Depression
  10. Inequality
  11. Inferiority
  12. Sickness

In this article I am going to teach you how to adjust your reality to eliminate the negative feelings of Hate, Fatigue, Sadness and Lack from your life.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Hate. Hate is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Fatigue. Fatigue is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate feelings of Sadness. Sadness is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate Lack. Lack is a perceived reality.

 

Take a look at these four very unique realities. They are all so different, yet they are all the same. What you look at and recognize as your “life” is your perceived reality. That means that what you are experiencing is “real” – according to you. What is real to you is not exactly real to someone else.

In my observations, Hate is one of the more complex realities people choose to live in. Hate is always a choice – whether we realize we are choosing it or not. Hate is not inherent; it is always taught and is sadly easier to pass to others than joy. Hate is such a strong feeling but it is also a very casual feeling. “I hate that shirt.” You might not loathe that shirt, but “hate” was just the word that came to mind because it is so readily available in our daily lives. Adjusting your choice of words to saying, possibly, “I don’t care for that shirt” instead of “hate” clarifies your intention just the same, without introducing such a terrible sentiment into the situation. Hate, when freely used, slips into our subconscious and dictates our beliefs about life circumstances as well as other people. “I hate them –they’re so…”; “I hate you when you say that…” “I hate when this happens!” Just having to write those examples was hard for me because I don’t have an ounce of hate in me. There was a time in my life, very early on, that the feelings of “hate” were in my life – but that was just because I didn’t understand the severity of my feelings and I couldn’t articulate exactly what I felt, nor did I understand why I felt that way.

Hate is present when one cannot appropriately articulate frustration that has stemmed from a lack of clarity.

Fatigue is a real thing; or is it? Sure, we all feel tired when our bodies require sleep; but what about feeling overall “life fatigue” all the time? If you do not lead a laborious life where you are constantly pushing your body to its limits, it can be hard to understand why you’d be confused as to why you’re always so tired. Fatigue is a lack of mental energy – the physical nature of energy through physiological expression is merely the personification of the mental processes. We hear people say things like, “I have to psych myself up for it” or “I’ll get there, I have to mentally prepare for this workout.” Why? Because the mind is formulating and summoning the necessary mental energy needed to perform a desired physical action – that’s why so many understand that they have to go within to get energized. “This song really pumps me up and gets me going!” Why? The mental energy that ignites the endorphins and rushes the adrenaline provokes the reaction for physiological response from the mind.

Overcoming fatigue is an inside job.

Sadness is a lack of happiness. To cure temporary sadness, even chronic sadness – the remedy is the same: the chronic OPPOSITE. If you disrupt feelings of overwhelming sadness with feelings of overwhelming happiness, happiness wins and sadness is defeated. This is the shortest segment of these four – it’s that simple. Replace the undesired with the desired and if you do it consistently enough, your life will change and sadness, the undesired, will leave you forever.

Replace the undesired with your new desires and your life will transform!

Finally, Lack is the absence of Abundance. To perceive that you do not have an abundance of anything is to acknowledge and affirm that you do indeed have LACK. Where there is Lack, there is only room for like thoughts and feelings – not room for Abundance to appear. For Abundance to appear, one has to acknowledge and affirm…Abundance. What we think about, multiplies. If your focus is Lack, you’ll get more of that. Who wants more of that?!

Create your ultimate life WITH GRATITUDE for your ABUNDANCE and YOUR LIFE WILL TRANSFORM!

In my next article I will teach you why and how to eliminate the final four negatives; Depression, Inequality, Inferiority and Sickness.

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!

Twelve Negatives You Can Eliminate with Gratitude

no-negativity-sign

Twelve Negatives You Can Eliminate with Gratitude

  1. Poverty
  2. Anger
  3. Frustration
  4. Envy
  5. Hate
  6. Fatigue
  7. Sadness
  8. Lack
  9. Depression
  10. Inequality
  11. Inferiority
  12. Sickness

Beginning with this post and continuing with the next two posts, I am going to segment these twelve into blocks of four and teach you why and how to squash everything negative with Gratitude!

Here’s the foundation:

Gratitude has the power to eliminate poverty. Poverty is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate anger. Anger is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate feelings of frustration. Frustration is a perceived reality.

Gratitude has the power to eliminate envy. Envy is a perceived reality.

Take a look at these four very unique realities. They are all so different, yet they are all the same.

What you look at and recognize as your “life” is your perceived reality.

That means that what you are experiencing is “real” – according to you. What is real to you is not necessarily real to someone else.

When one feels like they are living in poverty, there may be multiple examples in their reality that support their feeling. From the amount of money they see in their bank account to the condition of the dwelling they live in, poverty seems like a very real thing and it’s quite understandable why people think they are doomed to stay in poverty for the rest of their lives. If one does not know differently or the idea of something better than that reality is one that is too hard to grasp, they will exist in that state indefinitely.

Anger and Frustration are siblings of Poverty. In the reality of Anger and Frustration, one experiencing those feelings experiences event after event of angering and frustrating circumstances. What they continuously experience develops as their reality. Until they learn how to choose emotional reactions other than anger and frustration, the events of their life won’t change and those negative feelings will continue to be personified as their life circumstances.

Finally, feelings of envy do not serve one who is trying to create their ultimate life because feelings of envy are loudly proclaiming, “I feel badly because I do not have that.” The attitude of envy produces lack, which undermines the feelings of abundance and negates all of the positive energy that one has been channeling. When you find yourself feeling envious, or wanting what another has from a sorrowful center of pity because you don’t have that as your own, knock that right out with…wait for it…GRATITUDE!!!

GRATITUDE IS THE GATEWAY TO GREATNESS!

Every single negative emotion can be squashed by becoming centered in Gratitude. Thinking thankful thoughts produces POSITIVE feelings that boost our endorphins and elevate our “happy centers.”

Tomorrow, I will teach you why and how to adjust the practice of Gratitude for Hate, Fatigue, Sadness and Lack.

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!

Asking for Gratitude Always Gives an Answer

thinking

There is a difference between stating you are grateful and asking what you are grateful for.

Statements provoke empathy – we can relate to what we see. Questions require answers and because our brains cannot help but to quickly begin working to find the answers to the questions it’s been asked, more comes from a question posed than a statement made.

While the statement of “I am grateful” is wonderful, it’s somewhat limiting. When you ask yourself, “What am I grateful for?” you create an infinite list of options for your brain to scan and upon locating, the answers appear, one after another.

“What am I grateful for?” is a powerful, open-ended question that provokes limitless responses.

Whereas, I am grateful is a powerful but closed-ended statement that provokes an empathetic response of agreement rather than requiring elaboration.

When you ask yourself, “what am I grateful for?”,  your mind introduces the question as well as the responses. Because it is providing both the question and the answers, unequivocal and devoted thought is being given to the sole topic of focus, which is giving thanks and producing more thoughts of what else you want in and as your life to ultimately be grateful for.

Get in the habit of training your mind to ask the most important question it can – “what am I grateful for?”

Every time you ask, every time you inquire, you have a different answer and feel more and more inspired!

The time for happiness is NOW.

The time for joy is ALWAYS.

The time for you to create your ultimate life, has come. Join me! We’ll do it TOGETHER!
