Are you longing to feel more joy, peace, calm, and contentment in your life? Gratitude can take you there. While there are many contemplative practices that can greatly enhance the way you live, experience, and enjoy your life, an informal or formal gratitude practice is a beautiful, gentle, and easy way to begin.
Contemplative practices are spiritual practices that transcend religion and religious traditions. Prayer, mindfulness, meditation, or gratitude practice are peaceful contemplative practices that create stillness in our lives. From this place of calm centeredness, we are able to deeply explore our personal values and purpose and connect with what we find most meaningful in our lives. Contemplative practices gently encourage us to live our lives with love and compassion for ourselves and for others.
When we intentionally find things to be grateful and thankful for, we automatically open the door to abundance and invite more of what we are grateful for into our life. I often share with my clients a simple psychological principle: What you look for, you will find. If you look for the negative, you will easily find it. If, however, you adjust your mindset to see the positive in your experiences, relationships, and life, you will see it! By setting an intention to notice the things for which you are grateful, you will be amazed by the blessings that currently exist in your life.
The simple but transformative power of gratitude can shift your inner emotional landscape and change your life. By practicing gratitude, you become more empathetic to others, feel more connected and loving in your relationships, feel less stressed, and generate profound feelings of joy, peace, and emotional well-being.
