Lessons of Gratitude


Gratitude is a topic that has become so talked about that even non spiritual folk throw the word around every now and then. There are countless books, blogs, websites and even Facebook pages dedicated to gratitude and teaching us how we can become more grateful in our lives.

Practicing the art of gorgeous gratitude – that is making the conscious decision to express, feel, think and say words of gratitude on a daily basis is where the magic happens. When we find ourselves desiring new experiences, people, places, objects and feelings we do so because we believe that the acquisition of them will make us feel better, happier, more prosperous, more loved etc etc. I believe in truth it’s not a specific object we desire but a better more positive feeling within our core that we desire.

However if you are enjoying living a sassy human experience (me too!) then chances are you will at some point perhaps want a newer car, a bigger house, a better job, more money, the latest phone, the newest iGadget etc. How can we go about manifesting these? How we can we tap into the cosmos and give our cosmic order a boot up the sweet behind? We can practice Gratitude Girlfriend!


The more you practice gratitude the more abundance (not limited to the cash in your purse or wallet) that you will experience in your life! Practicing Gratitude has to be one of the surest ways and also the quickest, most effective method for raising your energy levels, your positivity and those feel good brain chemicals. There has been a study conducted by psychologists into how having a happy brain affects our lives.

I have learnt so much about how we CAN re-train our brain this re-programming our negative mindsets so that we become much happier and healthier human beings. Richard Davidson et al (2002) ran research studies that showed the difference between happy and unhappy brains and how it linked to our levels of happiness. By having a happy brain, by thinking positive and loving thoughts about ourselves and to ourselves we can increase our levels of happiness in life. Richard Davidson used a EEG machine (Electroencephalograph) to measure which parts of our brains are active with happy thoughts, and which parts are active when we think negatively. He found that when we tend to think more happy thoughts and are feeling happy we have more activity in the front left side of our brain, and when we are feeling more negative and thinking unhappy thoughts, the front right side of our brain is active.
Doesn’t that just make it worth taking a chance on gratitude? If gratitude can make us happy then we should most definitely give it a try.
