The more abundant our lives grow to be the more we forget to be grateful. Seems odd, doesn’t it? When we are experiencing a time of lack it’s easy to find people on their knees, but the forgetful nature of man is always at play.
When there is a rise from our lack-filled circumstances and we forget how we found the strength, inspiration, lucky coincidence, outright miracle that led us to greener pastures and still waters.
I remember after the financial crash of 2008. My home in Florida had decreased to 40% of its value overnight. My credit lines were slashed by the banks and my checking and savings account were gone because of a bank closure and I would be getting a check someday in the “whenever that will be” future. I didn’t have the money for my mortgage. WTF!
Of my own will, I was tapped. Out of options. Had no idea what to do. All I could do was turn to the Universe and plead for help. I didn’t know where it was coming. I had to surrender all notion of how this could be fulfilled or what was next.
Two days later I get a check in the mail for $2,400. The relief that washed over me felt like a cool, refreshing wave. Apparently a couple of years ago I filled out one of those postcards that you get to be part of a class action suit. Usually, if you receive anything, it’s a coupon for a stick of gum. But this time, right when I needed it the most, I am standing at my door holding a check that was twice what I needed for my mortgage. Holy shit!
Someone said to me “Well it wasn’t really a miracle that was already on it’s way to you.” Really? While that may be true it could have come two weeks before and landed in my account before they were all frozen. It could have been months later or a coupon for a stick of gum. No, you can’t take back my miracle Mr. Wordly.
That was a defining moment in my miracle mindset. One that I didn’t later try to explain away or diminish. I just accepted it for what it was. I milked that experience for every ounce of gratitude and appreciation I could. Even today when I wonder “How the hell?” I think back on that as a touchstone.
But I must admit even though I live what I consider to be an abundant life can wake up and realize my energy is off. I’m irritable and out of sorts and little things seem to be heading in frustrating directions. It doesn’t take long for me to realize I may not have gotten out of grace, but I am not in Gratitude.
Gratitude does not just raise your vibration placing where you can receive on so many levels (spiritually, emotionally and physically) it also builds your believing and changes your internal dialogue which is huge. That means it not only raises your vibe once you get some momentum going but it permanently starts to raise your core vibration. That’s your money shot right there.
