A New Approach with Gratitiude

Recently I read an article by Patricia Carrington PhD entitled "Using the 'Future Thanks' Method to Create What You Want." This article shares the idea of being in gratitude as a way of manifesting desires.

Remember in the movie The Secret the woman who cleansed herself of breast cancer by say "thank you for my healing". Joe Vitale wrote about a phrase he learned "Thank you god for all the blessings that I have and all that I am receiving."

This appraoch puts one in the space of accepting that which already is, that which we are grateful for, plus it opens us up to being in the Now with our desires that are manifesting. We are creating the new now.

The first three paragraphs were written yesterday, Saturday May 5, and today I'm finishing this post. Throughout the entire day yesterday, but especially during lunch, I kept saying to myself 'Thank you for all the blessings in my life and the blessings I am receiving." "Thank you for all the good things that are happening to me."

During lunch I went for a walk around the canyon and nature preserve near work. Most of the walk I was drinking in the beauty of the day, soaking in the warm sun and clear sky, the cool breeze and feeling the nature around me. Most of the time I kept saying those phrases and other positive affirmations would surface and I spoke them as well.

Today, the entire day is such an excellent day. Environmentally it may just be because it's San Diego but I see it in a whole different view. It feels so nice to be into the Now, it is a bit of a high. This is great.

Now, I see every day as a totally beautiful day. Windy, overcast or rainy, I see every day as a perfect gift from the Universe to show me the beauty of everything. I love watching the birds fly, the lizards crawl, the clouds float on by, wow, I love living this way.

Thank you for all these wonderful expereinces.
