AMAZING GRATITUDE! Gratitude helps us to be happy, and surprisingly, a regular gratitude practice builds our emotional resilience for coping with difficulties. An Unexpected Bonus.
By really feeling gratitude (not just thinking about it), we train ourselves to look for what is right in our life. Being present and breathing with gratitude relaxes our nervous system. It connects us with our Higher Self giving us access to greater intelligence and support. Different ways of looking at things are revealed, which can be so helpful in the world today.
The breadth and depth of what we can be grateful for helps point us to a balanced view of life’s preciousness and grandeur. As we get to know gratitude deeply, our nervous system is rewired towards basic trust. When things get rough, we are able to come back to our center more quickly. Then, we naturally take more responsibility for our beliefs, needs, reactivity and for shining our gifts in the world.
When practiced regularly, the gifts of Gratitude grow. Yogi Bhajan said that “Gratitude is the open door to abundance.” One door to abundance that Gratitude has opened for me is Peace that passes all understanding. From this place, I am able to ground, breathe and offer a prayer, while being present with reality.
