Gratitude is one of the highest vibrations we can feel, along with love, freedom and empowerment. Starting your day with thoughts of gratitude can set the tone for the day. What are your first thought when you awaken? Whatever you start your day with is how your day in going to unfold, so choose wisely.
Here are some of my favorite ways to raise our vibration:
First, start your day with gratitude, love and peace. Start your day in communion with Spirit, God or the Universe. Ask for guidance in your day. Give thanks for this gift of another day. Pray for those who are hurting and suffering. And commit to being of service to others today. Taking a few minutes every day to wake up with gratitude will immediately raise your vibration and allow for more miracles in your life.
Second, shift your focus. Instead of judgement, choose understanding. Instead of blaming, choose kindness. Instead of dislike or hatred, choose unconditional (that means without conditions) LOVE. Instead of frustration or anger, choose forgiveness. Instead of disappointment, choose gratitude. When we remember that everyone is doing the best they can in any given situation, it’s easier to shift our feelings to a higher vibration.
Third, spend some time in nature. Walk with gratitude and give thanks for the incredible miracles that surround you. Breathe deeply and slow down to observe the beauty around you. Allow yourself to release tension and move with ease. Enjoy a dance in the rain! Close your eyes and look up towards the sun to feel the power and heat on your face. Stop to literally smell the roses and all of the other beautiful smells of spring.
Fourth, release the past. Forgiveness is one of the keys to raising our vibration and we can use gratitude as a part of this process. First we acknowledge that the past is no longer serving us. Second, we release the past and give thanks for the lessons we have learned. And finally, we ask for forgiveness or grace so that we can truly move forward without the chains of the past.
And finally, know that we are all connected on an energetic level. Every human being on this planet is connected and connected to the collective consciousness of those who are no longer here. Your vibration attracts or repels others; it’s completely under your control. When you are vibrating with gratitude, you’ll naturally attract more grateful people.
To understand more of how we are all connected, I recommend listening to the audio recording, Co-Creating at Its Best: A Conversation Between Two Master Teachers, with Dr. Wayne Dyer and Abraham, as channeled by Esther Hicks. It’s PHENOMENAL. I just finished listening to the audio and I’m excited to listen again as there is so much to learn!
