Gratitude is included in the list of the most universal tools for solving life’s difficulties.
According to quantum physics, all the manifestations of this world are woven from one energy of different densities. Feelings are the same energy that can both destroy and create. With the help of the great power of gratitude, a person is able to harmonize life in all directions-from improving mood to improving health. Awareness of the benefits of this practice plus entertaining practical tasks will help you use this tool easily and productively.
What is gratitude?
A person experiences a feeling of gratitude as a response to something happening in relation to him.
That is, this feeling is a kind of natural response to receiving something good. If this response is suppressed or not noticed, and therefore, this energy is stopped on itself, then the balance of energies will be disturbed, which means the balance of everything.
Gratitude is nothing more than restoring balance, or harmony, in a person’s life. It is believed that this feeling has one of the highest frequencies of vibrations (on the Hawkins scale), having a huge positive impact on the person experiencing it.
What is the power of gratitude?
The desire for balance is a condition for staying in this world. When a person gives thanks (by thought, word or deed), he simply pays his debt, restores balance; and on the contrary, by not performing thanksgiving, he blocks the flow of energy, disrupting the balance.
For this reason, there is a restoration of integrity, without which a happy, full life is impossible.
Any imbalance has consequences. Otherwise, the stagnation of energy will make itself felt by an event swamp.
Five scientific facts
Gratitude has become a frequent subject of scientific research. Here are five facts of its impact on people:
- reduces inflammation;
- improves the quality of life in serious chronic diseases;
- improves well-being, reduces stress levels;
- helps to cope with envy;
- increases stress resistance and mental resources.
Try to arrange minutes of appreciation every day in the hustle and bustle of your affairs. It is convenient to tie them to some repetitive activities, such as eating. Make it a rule before each meal to mentally thank for the fact that you at least have what you have.
Not all inhabitants of the Earth have such an opportunity. Starting with gratitude for food, gradually expand the list.
And if you are ready to go further, consider the following three practice options.
Remember: there are no techniques that are suitable for everyone. Therefore, if one does not go, try another.
1. Gratitude Diary
Once a week, write out three or five things in your life that respond to you with a sense of gratitude. Add reflections on what these things mean to you.
This practice allows you to “highlight with a flashlight” what was hidden in the shadows of other feelings and thoughts: there will be so many good things in your life! The effectiveness of the practice will increase if you focus on specific people for whom you feel gratitude.
A simple diary is a quick, affordable tool to experience the full power and benefits of practice.
2. Practice “Three good events”
Every evening, allocate 5-10 minutes for a detailed description of the three positive events of the past day. It doesn’t matter — big or small.
Even a stranger’s smile or a job done on time. Add your thoughts on why this could have happened to you.
This practice not only helps to remember and evaluate the positive moments of the past. It teaches you to notice and savor the positive aspects of the present moment, and later remember them in all colors.
Thinking about the sources of these good things, you can see a huge ecosystem of kindness and care around you. This is especially useful for those who believe that the world is hostile. This negative attitude brings a lot of inconvenience.
3. “Gratitude Bank”
If it is still difficult to perform regular practices, there is another way to feel the power of gratitude — an effective technique for time-limited people.
You will need:
a little time, a
sheets of paper,
Make a list of the facts of your life for which you can be grateful. Specific people, their actions, animals, material things, memorable moments, important events, realizations, your physical, as well as any other opportunities.
Cut the sheets of paper into small parts, rewrite one thing from the list for each. Roll them up one by one, put them in a jar, cover with a lid, put them in a prominent place.
In difficult moments, pour fragrant tea, grab a jar of thanks, sit comfortably in a chair and read these scraps of paper on which all the precious gifts of your unique life are imprinted.
And it is better not to wait for hard times, but to do it at the behest of the soul.
Instead of an afterword
A brave person is not someone who has no fear, but someone who knows how to control it.
Also, a happy person is not someone who is doing well, but someone who, among the diversity of events, knows how to notice the positive and fixate, as well as find the good in any “bad”.
The power of gratitude and love helps to come to this state and gain a foothold in it — the most powerful point of growth for every human being.
