I express gratitude every single day and I always include all that I have and all that I am calling in. Sometimes I make a list of 10 and sometimes it’s a whole page in my journal.
It can be hard to express gratitude when you are deep into your struggle and you are barely seeing the light of day. If you read my post of what to do when gratitude doesn’t seem to be helping (read it here), then you know I have called you into action.
- Getting clear on your vision
- Mapping out a plan
- Letting go of the shit
- Taking Action
- Actively participate in your own change
If you have done this, then you can express gratitude for creating your vision, planning which is often the first step.
But there are many other ways to express your gratitude. I am going to share with you some of my favorites!
There is so much power in writing it down and engrain it into your vibrational being and into your subconscious. I am a huge fan of pen to paper because it also allows you to “see” all that you have and all that you are working towards. Showing gratitude for creating your vision or mapping out you plan also allows you to celebrate you and not giving up.
Dance it out
I love to dance. I love to make up songs. And sometimes combining the two is exactly what I need to do to uplift my spirits, raise my vibrations and get really excited about what is. Give it a try! Start your song with “I am so grateful and happy that…” to whatever tune comes to mind. Do this for however long feels good. Yes, you may look like a goofball and wonder what people think, but umm be unapologetically you with yourself.
Say it out loud
Speaking out about the things we are grateful for also supports our subconscious and raises our vibrations. Maybe you can sit in front of a mirror or just sit for a moment and honor all those things you are grateful for in the moment and all that you are calling into your life.
Take those markers, colored pencils and watercolors and create a piece of art filled with gratitude. Color is an amazing way to uplift our spirits and when we combine this with gratitude, it is so powerful because as you are in the moment of creating, you are giving yourself permission to let go of all the worries and stress and focusing on all that is good in your life.
Do one of them or do them all. Mix it up from day to day. Do one for consecutive days. Whatever feels good in the moment. Some days I journal and then when I sit outside on my front porch I say them out loud. And maybe when something awesome happened, I’ll dance and sing my gratitude.
There isn’t a right or wrong way to do this, there is only your way.
