Struggling with Gratitude?
By Kristen Howe
By now, I’m sure you have heard that gratitude is essential when it comes to harnessing the Universal Laws and manifesting the life you desire.
And it’s true, you MUST take time for gratitude every day.
Here’s the key with gratitude (and with everything else)…
The emotion that comes with the gratitude is where the power of creation and manifestation lives.
What that means is this…
If you just repeat things that you think you ‘should’ be grateful for but you don’t generate the ‘feeling’ of gratitude, then you’ll be spinning your wheels.
And that’s why so many of you are stuck, trying to ‘do gratitude’ when what you really need is to ‘feel gratitude’. If you are like many people, here are some of the things you struggle with when it comes to ‘feeling’ gratitude:
You are so stressed and in fear, doubt and worry that you can’t settle your mind enough to think of anything you feel grateful for.
The mere act of trying to think of things to be grateful for just makes you focus on what you don’t have – and everything that is going wrong.
You feel like you know what you want to feel grateful for BUT it will have to wait until something specific happens in your life.
I get it, I’ve been there, I know how it feels to try to ‘feel’ gratitude and have your brain scream at you, “Are you crazy – we don’t have anything to be grateful for, it’s all just lack and struggle!”
It’s a catch 22 – you have to get into a state of gratitude to rise above lack and struggle and yet, when you try to feel gratitude, all you think about is lack and struggle. So what do you do?
I want you to really let this sink in…
Gratitude is a ‘feeling’ not a ‘thinking’ and when you get stuck focused on what you don’t want, that is instigated by thought – the key then, is to get out of your head.
I have a few Gratitude Generators for you to help…
that you can work with to Manifest
Anything – do you know what they are?
5 GRATITUDE GENERATORS
Gratitude Generator #1:
Ask yourself this Power Question: “I know I don’t think I have anything to be grateful for right now, but if I did have something to FEEL grateful for, what would it be?”
You’ve heard me use this kind of power question before and it is extremely powerful when it comes to getting out of the objections of your head when it comes to gratitude.
Gratitude Generator #2:
Use your history: Think of things you are so grateful for in hindsight now that they aren’t a part of your daily life any more.
This is just to remind you that often there is so much to be grateful for, but we may not realize it until after the fact. Once we see this and feel this truth, we become empowered to feel the things that are currently in our life that we can feel grateful for that we may not have seen before.
Gratitude Generator #3:
Use your History Some More: Think of a time in the past when you were down and out, when things weren’t going well, but eventually you prevailed and came out on top. Now, look at that time when you were down and out (and probably thought there was nothing to be grateful for) and identify what you could have been grateful for in that time that you didn’t even see.
Once you realize that you have felt this way before and in fact there were things you could have been grateful for (even though you didn’t see it then) you open your self up to a new vision of what you can be grateful for now.
Gratitude Generator #4:
Let Them Set the Example: Look at any friends and family who are struggling and who would tell you they have nothing to be grateful for. Can you look at their lives and see things they could be grateful for (even though they can’t see it)? Of course you can. It is the same for you!
Gratitude Generator #5:
Let Them Set the Example Some More: Look at people who have what you desire. What are all of the things, you can see, that they could be grateful for. (More than just the fact that they have the thing you want.) List EVERYTHING you can see that they could be grateful for and then ask yourself, “What of these things is already in my life, even if it is in a small way?”
|Quick Tip||Look Who’s Talking…|
|This is SO important. When you are using the Gratitude Generators, resist the temptation to judge yourself, especially when it comes to looking at your history or discovering what you may be missing now. Judgment will only keep you stuck. Here’s a trick to free you from judgment – any time you want to judge (yourself of someone else) say this:
“Whenever I want to judge, that means there is a valuable lesson to be learned. I am willing to have that lesson revealed to me now and I am grateful for what I am learning as I know I am growing into more of my magnificence!”
Your emails are helping me a lot to redefine myself and also to feel better when I’m stressed or sad or anything negative.
