Wealthy and Creative - How to apply Gratitude and Attract Riches
By Tania French
This cozy long weekend always reinforces the beauty of giving thanks. I have a lot to be thankful for.
Writing to all of you has been a great source of joy. I love hearing from you and connecting with you on a daily basis. It is a wonderful way for me to begin creating my day. Thank you.
One of my favorite writers, Wallace D. Wattles, has some fabulous reasons as to why gratitude is a key ingredient for success.
As creative beings we realize that All things are born out of a creative force. This unseen creativity is immense and powerful. It is energy made manifest. Money also is energy made manifest. The more energy you express creatively, the more comes into your world in the form of riches, or money.
Wattles writes, "If it is a new thought to you that gratitude brings your whole mind into closer harmony with the creative energies of the universe, consider it well, and you will see that it is true.
"The good things you already have, have come to you along the line of obedience to certain laws. Gratitude will lead your mind out along the ways by which things come; and it will keep you in close harmony with creative thought and prevent you from falling into competitive thought."
Being competitive wipes out any sparks of creativity. Being grateful instantaneously attracts a movement of blessings towards you. "The law of gratitude is the natural principle that action and reaction are equal, and in opposite directions.
"But the value of gratitude does not consist solely in getting you more blessings in the future. Without gratitude you cannot long keep from dissatisfied thought regarding things as they are."
He is saying that if you feel dissatisfied, switch gears, then find something, anything that you are grateful for. This alone transforms the unproductive energy of dissatisfaction into the wealth-producing energy of appreciation.
"It is necessary, then, to cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing that comes to you; and to give thanks continuously."
And this next bit is really important. "And because all things have contributed to your advancement, you should include all things in your gratitude."
Wow. What does this mean?
Well, take this moment to reflect on all that has happened to you. If you really look closely, every event has formed you into the beautiful, creative being you are today. So don't look back in judgment. Give thanks even to those who you may have previously felt don't deserve it.
You see, a judgmental world is a sad, depressive world. A world of gratitude is a joyous, peaceful, infinitely creative world. Only you can choose which world fits your needs.
Just remember. What you want wants you too. And being thankful for even the smallest event triggers a joyful creative force that may otherwise lay dormant forever. This creative force manifests into wealth thus allowing you, the creator, the freedom and joy to be all you can be.
