Gratitude is the key to your happiness!
When people live and practice gratitude everyday, you'll notice something special about them. They are happy. They are genuine. They are at peace. And they have an energy about them that is gravitational. It pulls you in.
The best part about gratitude is anyone can cultivate it and put its energy to good use.
Gratitude, Well-Being and Happiness
Did you know there have been studies linking an ‘Attitude of Gratitude’ with an increase in your well-being and happiness according to research by UC Davis psychologist Robert Emmons, the world’s leading expert on Gratitude!
He goes into great depth to provide evidence on how this simple shift in attitude and your attention can improve your whole life!
Here’s my take on how this happens.
Gratitude is so powerful and such a valuable healing tool because of its effect on your vibrational frequency and your energy field. Gratitude takes your vibrational rate from a lower frequency to a higher one and a higher frequency feels better all around!
You may have heard me speak before about energy frequencies being at the essence of every thought, word, choice, action, emotional response, every belief; everything!
Vibrational Frequency and Gratitude
Every single thing that exists in this universe is an energetic representation of a vibrational frequency. What does that mean? Without getting too scientific, it represents the speed of the movement of light within an energy wave.
You may recall from your childhood science lessons about how light influences the colors you see. Sound works the same way. You can detect the amount of light energy moving through sound as well and in fact, not only do you hear it, you feel it. Your body is affected by it, as both sound and color have the ability to soothe, to excite, to calm, to delight! Sensations evoking emotional responses may even bring on memories.
So what does this have to do with Gratitude?
The vibrational frequency of Gratitude is very high because it carries a lot of light and so it has the potential to bring more light into your life!
How will that translate?
The more light that flows through you, the less density you experience. Density is experienced as resistance to the flow of life; lethargy, rigidity, depression, lack of connection to self and others, resistance to change, etc.
Abundance of light of course is the just the opposite.
You experience a drive to explore, to relate to others, to seize life, to share, to love, to give and to receive.
In fact, you may feel like you are in love you feel so light!
Bring in more light and everything shifts to align with it.
That’s why your health, happiness and whole being are so affected by it.
