Gratitude - there is more to it than you think!
We say we are grateful,
and perhaps use the word frequently, but do we fully feel and
We can move from gratitude simply being a
word – to becoming a powerful way of being. Your prayers,
intentions, and affirmations, are always enhanced by what you feel.
Those feelings have power and can energetically enhance your goals.
Think of your words as being the direction for your manifestation
and your feelings being the fuel to propel them forward.
The feeling of gratitude is a powerful fuel.
moment and focus on something you are grateful for. Visualize it in
front of you and soak in all that gratitude because this is part of
your life. How do you feel when you are grateful? What emotions are
present? How does your body feel and where in your body do you feel
gratitude? How is your mood? How does pure gratitude feel? How do
Can you feel the difference? Gratitude is a great
energy! Wouldn’t it be nice to hold onto this energy throughout each
day? It would be even better to actually become that energy - to be
Once you are able to call up the feelings and
energies of gratitude, you can use it during your manifestation
That means working to experience gratitude as if your
intention or prayer has already manifested. Feel it even before it
has occurred. When you are grateful for something before it has been
received, it powerfully propels your creation forward - clearly and
Being gratitude is more than saying ‘I’m grateful’
– however it is a great accomplishment to be mindful of saying the
words on an ongoing basis. Being gratitude means moving past the
words and really becoming gratitude each and every day. As you say
‘I am grateful,’ consciously feel it in your heart, mind, body, and

It is interesting that I scheduled this article for December well
over a year ago, and it is exactly now that I need to really absorb
for myself. I’ve had a unexpected accident (hairline fractured
femur- leg bone) that has laid me on my back and humbled me in my
inability to do most everything physical, and took me off my
gratitude center. I thought, “How can any of this be something that
I am grateful for?” However, it could be worse. I could have been
alone when the accident happened – I had a friend visiting for the
holidays who helped get me to the ER. I could have damaged my leg
more severely. I could have had a weak body and injured more than my
leg. I am grateful that my years of healthy eating and my beloved
Pilates has helped keep me physically strong. There is more for me
to discover and to be grateful for as I continue this journey. But
for now, I am just grateful for this article that I wrote last year
and scheduled for this month. The timing of reviewing it for
publication was ‘in right time’ for me. It is helping me move back
into alignment with who I really am – a positive grateful person.
Yes, there is more to gratitude than the words, it is who we are at
our spiritual core. I am full of resolve. I will not allow myself to
let life’s circumstances take me away from me.
