If I had to pick one thing to discuss with someone in regards to opening ones door to manifesting experiences of happiness and I only had a few minutes, I would choose.. APPRECIATION! Why? Well, because you can not get more of something wonderful without feeling gratitude for what you already have in your life. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? However to say that you are grateful for warm running water, yet actually do not ‘feel’ grateful and just take it for granted every day, will not put you in a state of proper emotion for manifesting desires. What do you mean, “you can’t run around all day happily, joyfully appreciating every little, tiny item, relationship, and general experience that you come in contact with???” (ha,ha.) Let me break it down (I know, I know..I only have a few minutes.. I’ll be quick!)
Remember the first time you fell in love with your spouse/significant other? Those moments that you just lost yourself within? You were excited and giddy. You were adding fresh and new (and wanted) experiences into your moments. How about that moment when you step into a steaming, warm shower and your cold body starts to slowly heat up? And what about the feeling of drinking a clean, ice-cold glass of fresh water after taking a long jog in the heat? It’s those first moments that you let yourself indulge – even if it’s just a split second.
What do they all have in common? The same emotions of pure bliss! In these moments, you have stopped worrying about other life experiences. There is no guilt, sadness, anger, resentment, jealousy. In those blissful seconds or times, you are not bored or judgmental (toward yourself or others.) It may only last a short time, however that is all it takes to open your divine door to your desires! So, how do we keep it open? We remember how we felt at each one of those moments and practice, day by day, minute by minute, training ourselves to feel the pure joy of appreciation and gratification for all the wonderful (even if we want more or different) things, places, relationships that we are now having the pleasure to experience!
We learned how to become in a state of negative emotion. We can learn how to become in a state of positive emotion! It may take time, but what else have you ‘got’ to do?????
Deeply from the heart, always,
