There's been a great deal written on the subject of Manifesting and Conscious Creation. Some of it is wonderful, others not so much. From practicing and teaching Manifesting and Conscious Creation for many, many years, I can tell you that the most important ingredient to successful manifesting is gratitude.
Too often we spend our time focused on what's missing, lacking
or not good enough in our lives. The truth of the matter from an energetic perspective is that what you focus your attention on is what you bring forth. If you're focusing on what's missing you're focusing on the energy of lack and just like a magnet, you'll bring more lack into your life.
So how do you switch the focus away from lack and into the flow of abundance? The answer is simple; be grateful for what you already have. When you have gratitude for what you already have in your life (friends, a roof over your head, getting from one place to another safely, etc.) you immediately shift the focus from "lack" to one of "having". This will not only raise your personal energy vibration to one that draws abundance, you'll find that there is far more positive already in your life than negative. You'll also find yourself feeling more content and much happier.
Don't believe me? Try it right now. Say out loud five things that you're grateful for. Be thoughtful about it as you do this. I'll just bet that by the time you get to number five, you'll have shifted your energy and are feeling happier and more positive. By regularly practicing the Attitude of Gratitude, you'll raise your vibration and put yourself in the energetic flow of "having".
So the next time you're feeling down, disappointed, or stuck in your life, stop and count five things that you're grateful for. The more you do this, the more you'll see your life shift and the more quickly you'll reach your goals. Making gratitude part of your daily life enriches the experience of each and every day.
Here's an idea; why not try this at the Thanksgiving table this year? Go around the table and have everyone say five things that they are grateful for. You'll feel a shift in the room as everyone begins to count their blessings and realize how very blessed they really are. After all, that's what Thanksgiving is all about.
