"Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance"
~ Eckhart Tolle
Gratitude is a word often thrown around in the spiritual community. And for those who are going through difficult times, feeling gratitude can be hard - if not impossible!
Although, did you know that gratitude has a frequency of 540 MHz. That's the same frequency as love.
A few years ago, I was pondering the opening verse from the Gospel of John that reads "In the beginning was the word, and the word was God". I must add I'm not in any way religious, although I see a lot of truths within the texts, even if I don't fully align with the faith they belong to. Upon waking that morning I heard the voice of one of my guardians in my ear exclaiming "The word is LOVE!".
That message has stuck with me ever since. It's the love frequency that manifests our creations. Not greed, or want or need. You can't fake it, replicate it with AI or copy it from someone else. Love is the special ingredient that creates the charge needed to manifest, and if gratitude and love are aligned on the same frequency then they work together to create that charge.
Feeling gratitude for what you "do" have is a gateway into the love frequency. And the best thing about it is; it's gets easier with practice.
The Gratitude Frequency
Practicing gratitude shifts your focus from "what you don't have" to "look what I do have!". When you acknowledge the abundance already present in your life, you attune yourself to that frequency. This creates a magnetic pull towards similar manifestations.
Gratitude acts as a powerful alchemical agent, completely shifting the vibrational fabric of our existence. When we express heartfelt gratitude, we raise our energetic frequency and align with the realm of abundance, joy, and love. This elevated vibration draws all those higher vibrational manifestations into your life.
Gratitude is the bridge.
Disclaimer! Practicing gratitude doesn't mean you have to feel grateful for traumatic events or for abuse you have gone through. Although holding gratitude for the lessons that have arisen and the growth that you've gained from the experience can be a way of finding balance - and this will take time.
It's also important to note that the practice of gratitude is something that works alongside the awareness of truth and discernment. So holding truth about a situation or a feeling you have and validating and acknowledging that truth without trying to push it away.
Creating a Regular Practice
As I said earlier; holding gratitude becomes easier with practice. So the simplest way to do this is to spend time each day reflecting on what you have, however small. Feel into it as much as you can and really see yourself as blessed for having these qualities, people or things in your life.
You may choose to set a time to practice, such as first thing when you wake up or before you go to bed. You could even set a gratitude diary or journal on your nightstand as a reminder - Writing things down is a powerful way of manifesting.
