A Seed of Gratitude

A few years ago I happened across this YouTube video called, “The 15 Minute Miracle Method,” which was a daily gratitude exercise.  The woman in the video talked about the exercise as a means for manifesting the desires of your heart.  I diligently began doing the Gratitude exercise, which consisted of making a list of 10 things that you are grateful for while feeling the Gratitude and then making a list of 10 things that you desire, feeling the Gratitude as if you already have it.  At the time that I committed myself to doing this Gratitude exercise, I couldn’t quite get myself to the feeling of Gratitude, like she talks about.  The feeling of Gratitude is key.  After a few months, I stopped doing the Gratitude lists because I couldn’t see the results.

Little did I know that a seed had been planted.  I couldn’t see it, and at the time, I couldn’t feel it, but it was a start.  I’ve been back to doing my daily Gratitude list now for quite some time, as I started back up after reading The Magic and committing myself to living in Gratitude.  I look back at this video and realize that this video helped plant the seed of Gratitude in me.  I didn’t appreciate Gratitude then as I do now, but once that seed is planted, it begins to grow in your life.

I’d highly encourage you to start making a daily list of 10 things that you’re grateful for in your life.  And while you make that list, feel as much Gratitude as you can for the good in your experience.  The power for change in your life comes in feeling the Gratitude energy flow.  And when you make this list a daily habit (which, as the video discusses) for at least 30 days, it will begin to become a normal part of your day.  You don’t have to do it in the morning, though the morning is preferable, but you can carve the time out during your day or even in the evenings before you go to bed.  Whatever you do, make time for Gratitude and you’ll be amazed at the changes that you’ll start to notice in your experience.
