Attract Abundance by Gratitude

I met a neighbour in the lift the other day; all dressed up, heading for a job interview.

  • I’ll stop by the church to light a candle, and say a little prayer to get the job.
  • Once you get it, will you light another one to thank for the job?

He didn’t answer, probably thinking how silly his neighbour was. Perhaps he had never given this a serious thought. I still hope he’s done it… There’s something really magical in that second candle.

Gratitude attracts abundance.

If we are grateful, and only if we are truly grateful, the universe will send us more of what we are grateful for. Why would the universe work for us? It’s only natural, in fact. We might have forgotten about it, but happiness is our natural state. Abundance is our natural state. It’s not selfishness or greed, it has nothing to do with whether we have earned it, or if we can pay for it somehow. That’s who we are!

Abundance will elude only those who constantly think they don’t have enough.

However natural abundance should come to everyone, we are given a free will, and the tools to change the world. Your thoughts are the tools. If you constantly think about what you don’t have, the universe reacts to your thoughts, creating an ever deeper absence. There’s not a person in this world who doesn’t have anything, but many do not know how to be grateful for what they have. There’s a trick we don’t know, which is why we let our thoughts drive us to misery so easily. Clear the blockades and transform ignorance into wisdom, fear into love, and suffering into abundance.

You should learn how to accept abundance first.

A stomach in spasm cannot accept food, even if completely empty. What else is greed, envy and a fear of poverty if not a spasm? These are the feelings blocking us. That’s why teachers sometimes give away something of their own, for a student to relax. It’s a futile attempt, however, if they don’t change, and cure themselves with gratitude! One of the two things will happen: either they’ll come to depend on the teacher, or feel even more desperate as yet another attempt has failed. You heal yourself alone – find something good within, something beautiful about you, around you, in other people close to you, and be grateful.

Abundance is universal!

A viable technique is easy to practice daily, because the experience is telling you it works. You’ll see, the universe will give you what you’re grateful for. If you are truly grateful for whatever little money you have, you’ll get more, because you can receive more. Little love may be fulfilling you, but if you are grateful, your potential for love expands, and more love comes to your life. The incredible thing is that if by gratitude you attract just love, or just a job, or just money, the type of abundance you have created will draw in other types of abundance, too. You’ll do it yourself! Why? How? Again, by being grateful, because we all deserve to be happy and healthy, loved and fulfilled; we deserve a smile on our faces.

Have you ever been sent to an emergency room? A mere five minutes there would make you realise how much you actually have, however tormenting your problems may be. The problem is that such gratitude is so ephemeral. Of seven billion people on this planet, you belong to the billion enjoying their own bed, enough water to drink and bath in, and at least one hot meal a day. Try and say one “thank you” a day for these things.

Gratitude towards each fragment of your little abundance is an investment in whatever makes you smile. If of five things you don’t have four, focus on the one you have and caress it with your gratitude – the one will give birth to the other four. Like me, wake up every morning with one single thought:

Today I am grateful.

  1. Pored toga što je tekst odličan, na vrlo jednostavan način kroz slikovite primerimere objašnjavaš kako treba posmatrati situaciju u kojoj se nalazimo i šta treba da nam bude sledeći korak.
    U potpunosti se slažem sa stavovima koje si izneo jer ih primenjujem i meni je pomoglo.
    Hvala ti što pored svih obaveza nađeš vremena i za pisanje, mnogo mi znači.

  2. Žarko sjetio si me na moje riječi, koje sam često upućivala svojem najstarijem sinu. Često je, kao dječak, bio nezadovoljan što nema ovo ili ono. Bilo mu je krivo, jer ima brata i dvije sestre, nismo bili imućni, pa mu nismo mogli kupiti baš ono što je želio imati, a njegovi imućni prijatelji su imali toliko toga. Puno puta sa mu rekla: Sine nemoj bit nesretan zbog nečeg što nemaš, budi sretan zbog onog što imaš. A imaš brata i dvije sestre, ti si bogat. Nemoj biti nesretan što nemaš, budi sretan što imaš ono što se ne može kupiti. Ne znam jer me je shvaćao što mu govorim, ali danas, kad ima trideset godina veli da je je sretan i presretan jer ima brata i sestre. I kaže mi sin da se sjeti mojih riječi: Budi sretan zbog onog što imaš, a nemoj biti nesretan zbog nečeg što nemaš. Ja sam sretna što imam dobru djecu, i ponavljam to u sebi svaki dan puno puta. Ta činjenica, ta svesnost o njihovoj dobroti mi daje snagu i volju za sve što radim. ( Sada sam sretna i zbog tvojih predobrih tekstova, iako te baš i ne poznajem, a čini mi se dok čitam tvoj blog, kao da si neko od mojih najbližnjih). Laku ti noć želim !

  3. Predivno je kada u nečijim mislima čuješ nešto što te potseti na davno zaboravljene istine. Hvala Vam!!!
    Nadam se da će biti prilike i da Vas upoznamo i uživo slušamo te divne misli.

  4. Sad procitah novi tekst na blogu, apsolutno prelepo😀😀! Svaka cast! Bas osvescuje i budi i uliva nadu.🙂🙂

  5. Pogledajte ovu prelepu sliku ispod naslova. Šta obično kažemo? Jao kako divna slika.
    A da li ikada pomislimo drugačije i kažemo: Zahvalan sam što imam oči da je vidim. Sve nam se podrazumeva a tako samo gubimo osećaje i tonemo u bezvolju.
    Biti zahvalan za stvari koje obično podrazumevamo vodi ka zdravlju i svakom izobilju!

  6. Pises iz srca, pomazes od srca. To se i vidi i oseca. Sjajan tekst, kao i svi prethodni. Ne znam sta da kazem, sem da sam zahvalna sto sam te upoznala i sto si mi pomogao da mnogo bezbriznije i kvalitetnije zivim.

  7. Ovo je tekst koji citam drugi put, sada cu ga i odstampati da mi bude uvijek pri ruci i da ga podjelim sa onima koje volim. Cesto zaboravimo koliko je vazno biti zahvalan i srecan sa onim sto imas, bez obzira da li ce to privuci izobilje. Dovoljno je da nam to donosi mir a sve sto dolazi kao nagrada da nas uci da dajemo i sirimo dalje.
    Hvala Vama na vremenu koje odvojate za ove mudre savjete. Zahvalna sam sto mogu da Vas citam i da ovo pisem 🙂

  8. svojim dugogodišnjim iskustvom potvrđujem istinitost ovakvog pristupa životu. Naslijedila sam ga od svoje majke bez nekog velikog razmišljanja a kasnije u ratnim vremenima se pokazao kao spasonosan. Zlo se samo dobrim može pobijediti. Vatra se vatrom ne gasi. Ako Bogu zahvaljujemo za ono šta nam omogućava, Njemu se sviđa naša molitva i šalje nam sve više blagoslova i tako u beskonačnost. Zahvalnost je stanje MIRA
