5 Ways to Express Gratitude

 

We often think of gratitude as "gratitude for" something.

A very pure of expression of gratitude has no "for" after it.

It is a state of being that floods its joy on anything and everything that enters its field of awareness.

Many people find power and wisdom in using a gratitude journal, writing gratitude letters, and cultivating an attitude of gratitude.  Are you one of them? These folks have discovered an express route to happiness.  Gratitude is the key to a joyful and harmonious life.

Here I want to show you a fun way to find a state of gratitude within you and not only feel it, but express it.

The added benefit of these forms of expression becomes a perpetual motion machine.  As  you express your gratitude in these ways, you prime the pump of your talents.  Your face becomes radiant and your true light shines through your personality. People respond to you in loving and generous ways and your life flourishes.

Of course, the result of all that is that you end up with more to write in your gratitude journal!

This gets gratitude cycling through your life in a way that is self perpetuating.  It's like a spiritual ecstasy perpetual motion machine!

Here is the very simple technique…

Ponder these 5 questions and as the answers erupt in you, gratitude will be your experience.

5 Questions That Lead to a State of Gratitude:

What can I do differently today?

Consider how you can take a different route to work or prepare a meal in a different order or with foods you've never tried before.  Adding something new can shake up an old pattern and open you to heightened experience that floods you with gratitude.

How can I express myself more joyfully today?

 Here's one.  How about if you extend love to the person on the other end of the phone as you say "Hello!"  Yes, before you even know who it is!

 How can I dance more today?

This is my favorite one.  You can really be creative with this one.

What can I say today that I have never said?

Grab a dictionary and find some new words that make your mouth (and your mind)  feel good as you say them.

What can I praise today?

This one is endless.  Go crazy with it.

 Pick one of these at the top of your day and let it sprinkle its scintillating suggestion throughout the activities of your Monday. Pick another on Tuesday.  I wish you much dancing, colorful joy, and a splendid new vocabulary.

Today's YOFA jhe Session 7-30-08

I did a YOFA jhe Session for the list today.

Today's session was focused on your ability to access wisdom even in challenging situations.

We sometimes confuse wisdom with knowledge but they are very different.  Simply sensing the difference is the doorway to wisdom.  (For an expanded distinction, refer to chapter 14 of Rooted in the Infinite.)

It can be easy to access wisdom when you are happy and clear.  But what about when you feel upset, burdened, or challenged physically, emotionally, financially, or in a relationship that is important to you?  Those are the times when wisdom is so valuable and we usually cannot access it in those very moments.  In fact, the upset itself is evidence of our disconnection from our inner knowing.

Today's jhe session was a cultivation of the wisdom of the body, of the heart, of the elements within you.  Today's jhe session encourages an alignment within you that "sneaks in" and "undermines your upset."  It brings the peace that comes with wisdom.

You may notice it in your relationships as a deep sense of compassion even if you are the target of someone's anger.

You may notice this emergence of wisdom in your work as a clear sense of where to place your priorities and what to do next.

It may show up in your body as a feeling of centeredness and slower more careful motions.

If there is an area of your life that is particularly challenging, today's session may give you some insight into yourself that moves you forward on that subject.

The wisdom that comes through in you is completely unique and so I'm speaking in broad generalities here because it can be so different for everyone that no words can easily describe this.  But when you feel that wisdom come though you it is unmistakable.  It is a rock solid knowing of something that opens the path before you, clears the clouds, and floods ease through your physical presence.

Thank you for being part of this YOFA jhe Session.

With Love and Appreciation,
Rebbie
