Have we talked about the sheer velocity of energy that gratitude brings to your conscious creation journey? It's true- the power of PURE gratitude is unstoppable.
Do we really understand just how powerful the simple act of appreciation is?
- gratitude can heal
- gratitude can repair a broken relationship
- gratitude can build your bank account
- gratitude can bring meaning, purpose, and joy to your life
- gratitude can alter our world's course and return our planet to wholeness
In today's eZine, I share with you a few simple processes for incorporating more gratitude (more PURE gratitude that is) into your life. And, I'd like to introduce you to The Gratitude Project!
My colleague, Tom Murasso, has created http://GratitudeProject.info - a site loaded with F*R*E*E personal development eCourses, eBooks, and life-altering, consciousness raising gifts from a few dozen inspirational and transformational experts. I'm so impressed by the gifts that have been assembled. I think you'll find something wonderful to be grateful for! (And, I really did say *f*ree! --> no book or anything to purchase! )
My family and I are grateful to be headed to Possum Kingdom Lake (a beautiful oasis in Central North Texas) for our family water skiing vacation. I can't wait to see my best friend, Kat and her beau, Les (we pick them up on Saturday in Dallas). And, Ashlyn (just turned 7) has announced, "I'm ready to learn to ski, mom!" ... I'll let you know how that goes in a week or so!
I'm honored and grateful to have this opportunity to support you in some small way on your Conscious Creation Journey.
Create a great day!

PURE Gratitude: The life force that consumes your soul and transforms ordinary lives into extraordinary amusement rides.
Gratitude may very well be your Vibrational Keystone to mastering the art of conscious creation. Even science has found that the art of intentionally being grateful has profound physical and psychological benefits:
" .those who kept gratitude journals on a weekly basis exercised more regularly, reported fewer physical symptoms, felt better about their lives as a whole, and were more optimistic about the upcoming week compared to those who recorded hassles or neutral life events (Emmons & McCullough, 2003).
" .Participants who kept gratitude lists were more likely to have made progress toward important personal goals (academic, interpersonal and health-based) over a two-month period compared to subjects in the other experimental conditions.
" A daily gratitude intervention (self-guided exercises) with young adults resulted in higher reported levels of the positive states of alertness, enthusiasm, determination, attentiveness and energy.
" Participants in the daily gratitude condition were more likely to report having helped someone with a personal problem or having offered emotional support to another.

Unfortunately, most of us fail to fully apply gratitude in our lives.
We may appreciate what we have and we may exert genuine thankfulness regularly. We count our blessings and we use a gratitude journal to 'manifest' with "I am so grateful to now have. a new car; a great job; a loving mate, etc."
But, how often do we really revel in gracious, delightful gratitude for life itself? I'm talking more about the art of applying PURE Gratitude as opposed to transitory gratitude.
Let me clarify, for intentional creation, it is extremely powerful and effective to use gratitude as an 'elation tool'; a means of raising your everyday vibration through appreciation of each fulfilled desire (both before and after obtainment). We are applying the law of attraction intentionally when we are thankful for all the people/things/opportunities that we have. I encourage you to continue to seek out things to be grateful for.
And, I'm also suggesting that we exercise an even deeper, truer, and more powerful gratitude - pure gratitude.
Pure gratitude comes from the almost mystical awareness that Divine Order is always at hand; that in every moment of every day miracles occur that deserve our homage. When we allow pure gratitude to pleasure our beings then our wonderment transforms every 'ordinary' day into an extraordinary amusement ride built entirely for our personal entertainment.
Have you seen Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium? The entire movie is delightfully representative of what a life filled with wonder and child-like appreciation would be:
Waiting for the top of the hour when all the clocks will reverberate madly '12 o'clock', Mr. Magorium reads the clock:
Mr. Magorium: 37 seconds.
Molly Mahoney: Great. Well done. Now we wait.
Mr. Magorium: No. We breathe. We pulse. We regenerate. Our hearts beat. Our minds create. Our souls ingest. 37 seconds, well used, is a lifetime.
- Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium (2007) starring Dustin Hoffman and Natalie Portman
From taking pleasure in the wisp of the clouds overhead, to relishing in the sound of the star-studded silence at midnight, to the contentment of a lungful of air, to choosing to feel gleeful over the sight of a flower peaking through the pavement, or the effort of ants as they forage intensely for their daily quota. by intentionally CHOOSING AWE, pure gratitude overflows; encompassing your very core until you are in fact a heart-centered being naturally soaring through life in amazement.
"If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change." - Buddha
Pure gratitude transcends the whim of the moment and alters our state of existence.
Pure gratitude comes from the profound comprehension of the miracle of life.
Pure gratitude produces an unshakeable reverence that can never fall victim to the waxing and waning of life's tides or twists of fate.
By reaching for pure gratitude, we leap levels of consciousness; becoming automatically aligned with the essence of our true desires. As conscious creators, our entire intention is to align with the essence of our desires - thus, by embracing the highest order of gratitude we instantly release unconstructive vibrational magnetism and welcome our dreams with open arms.
"Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more." - Brother David Steindl-Rast
Gratefulness allows us to 'see' past momentary shortcomings and perceive any and all slights as Divine Order. Pure gratitude imbues courage into the depth of our being because we know, with absolute certainty, that there's never anything to fear for all is well, all the time.
"Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow." - Dorothy Thompson, journalist and activist, in 1939 Time Magazine noted her as one of the two most influential women in America (the other woman was Eleanor Roosevelt)
By now, I trust that the idea of moving from 'regular' gratitude to pure gratitude would have substantial benefits on your overall well-being AND your ability to manifest your dreams.
Now, how do I be more grateful?
- Breathe: The simple act of breathing can be turned into a gratitude exercise. Breathe slowly and intentionally while allowing your entire body to feel grateful for every oxygen atom.
- Volunteer: There's nothing you can do that will get your gratitude flowing faster than to support a cause or help someone in need.
- Keep a Gratitude Journal: The more you write about what you're grateful for the more deeply you will engrain the feelings of reverence.
- Put yourself in 'their' shoes: Just can't get into that place of 'pure gratitude' as deeply as you'd like? Deliberately choose to do without for a week. Instead of running water, require of yourself to go to the well (or store) for a week as millions around the world have to do every day. Instead of shoes, food, air-conditioning, etc. Choose to spend a day without one or more of your amenities. Not only will you realize that there are many things you thought you required for happiness that you really don't have to have, but your level of sheer appreciation for your good fortunes will astound you.
With pure gratitude, you have the power to transform your world and by doing so support the transformation of our world.
