The Power of Gratitude

This prayer of gratitude was found on a scrap of paper in a rancid dormitory at the liberation of Ravensbruck Concentration Camp in Germany at the end of World War II.

"Lord, remember not only the men of good will, but also those of ill will. But do not remember all the suffering they have inflicted upon us. Remember rather the fruits we have brought, thanks to this suffering: our comradeship, our loyalty, our humility, the courage, the generosity, the greatness of heart that has grown out of this. And when they come to judgment, let all the fruits we have bourne be their forgiveness."

The Power of Gratitude is an extremely important aspect of attracting to you the abundance and happiness that you desire and deserve in your life.

How is it that gratitude can affect the life experiences that you encounter from day to day? The power of gratitude works on the brain. It is a useful approach to lifting the spirit to a higher frequency where deep and lasting happiness can occur.

There is a very simple reason why most spiritual traditions suggest that when praying we give thanks for what we already have rather than ask for what we do not have. The power of gratitude and the vibration it creates within us always attracts more good things to us. You were guided here to learn how the power of gratitude will transform your life into a dream come true.

There is a wonderful Hasidie parable about the power of gratitude to change the course of our destiny in a heartbeat. This is the speed it takes for a "thank you" to reach Heaven's ears.

Apply the power of gratitude to supercharge your success. You can do this by consciously training yourself to notice everything you have to be grateful for and by doing so, tap into the power of gratitude.

Gratitude is often overlooked and seldom ever considered to be an important aspect of re-programming your subconscious for success. Did you know that all the scientific reports that you read and hear about where folks excel after they adopted an attitude where gratitude was part of their everyday life or started to keep a Gratitude Journal are further testaments to the power of gratitude? Being grateful and seeing situations (good or "bad") as a blessing brings more joy and happiness into your life.

When you are thankful for something, no matter how small it is, you are initiating the Law of Attraction to get even more of what you want and deserve. Watch how the power of gratitude works to create peace, beauty and joy in your life. The most powerful attitude we can ever have is the attitude of gratitude.

By learning to appreciate what you have, you increase your ability to harvest the abundance of God's blessings. When you are able to fully develop that awareness, (and with a little practice, you will) not only is it an extremely freeing experience, but you are setting yourself up for a much greater flow of abundance and happiness being attracted to and coming into your life. The Universal Laws that govern everything in life are in place and you only need to learn to operate in harmony with them. When you do, it will allow you to attract the abundance and happiness that you desire.
