An Attitude of Gratitude

Grounding Monday

Your mind shapes your universe. Whatever you’re thinking about or feeling about today is creating your future. A shifting of your thoughts can shift your day and your life. There are laws of the universe…law of gravity, law of relativity, the law of cause and effect. There is also the law of attraction. This law reveals that we attract to us what we are focusing on. Everything has energy—high or low. It is this energy that attracts other energy of the same—high or low. Controlling our feelings to be positive increases these vibrations, or energy, and we will attract good things in our lives. One of the best ways to do this is to be grateful for what we have.

In a TedxUCDavis talk, Allison Ledgerwood refers to a study out of UC Davis that found study’s participants had a significant increase in happiness and health just by taking a few minutes each day to write down things they were grateful for. So the benefits of seeing the positive in life has even been documented in research.

Most of this post’s information comes from the movie The Secret. Check it out on Netflix or view it on YouTube here. It is worth your time to watch it. It is life changing…or not…it just depends what you focus on. At the very least, though, start a gratitude journal. It is amazing how your attitude will improve. An improved attitude brings an improved life. So, yes, it’s true…your mind does shape your universe.
