Gratitude is a causative energy, not a reactionary emotion
-Eric Butterworth

This powerful quote by a Unity Movement legend,  is one of my favorites–one that has stuck with me through the years.  Thanksgiving season seems like an appropriate time of year to focus on deepening your gratitude practice.

While it’s normal to use gratitude as a reactionary emotion when someone does something helpful for you, the real power of gratitude lies in using it as a constant mantra in your life.  This practice deepens gratitude’s  power to enrich your life in ways you could never have created through force.  Dr. Joe Dispenza, neuroscientist and metaphysician says that gratitude means that it’s already happened.  As co-creator of your life, in order to consciously manifest your inspiration, you must pair your desire with the emotion of gratitude.  For gratitude is creative magic!

In order to awaken gratitude in your heart, try holding  your beloved pet or a photo of someone you love.  Beam love at them from your heart.  Now, call in the energy of gratitude.  Feel how gratitude feels. Give it love and space.  Expand your gratitude circle daily.  Consistently done, this practice will deepen your appreciation  and joy of life…

A more challenging practice is to express gratitude for the things that you aren’t grateful for.  Having gratitude doesn’t mean that you necessarily like what’s happened, it means that you accept what is.  Used in this way, gratitude can be a means of transmuting your suffering.

Have a happy and grateful Thanksgiving…
