The Mystics of Gratitude
Two thousand years ago, a life-changing knowledge was hidden within a sacred text...
The following passage comes from this sacred text, and it has mystified, confused, and been misunderstood by many people over centuries.
"Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him."
You have to admit that when you read the passage it appears unjust, as it seems to be saying that the rich get richer and the poor will get poorer. But there's a riddle to be solved in this passage, a mystery to uncover, and when you know it a new world will open up for you.
The answer to the mystery that has eluded so many for centuries is in one hidden word: GRATITUDE.
"Whoever has GRATITUDE will be given more, and he or she will have an abundance. Whoever does not have GRATITUDE, even what he or she has will be taken from him or her."
By the revelation of one hidden word, a cryptic text is made crystal clear. Two thousand years have passed since those words were recorded, but they are as true today as they ever were: if you don't take the time to be grateful you will never have more, and what you do have you will lose. And the promise of the magic that will happen with gratitude is in these words: if you're grateful you will be given more, and you will have an abundance!
Gratitude operates through a universal law that governs your whole life. According to the law of attraction, which governs all the energy in our Universe, from the formation of an atom to the movement of the planets, "like attracts like." It's because of the law of attraction that the cells of every living creature are held together, as well as the substance of every material object. In your life, the law operates on your thoughts and feelings, because they are energy too, and so whatever you think, whatever you feel, you attract to you....

After reading this book and implementing a systematic approach of gratitude to my life... I can't begin to explain what it's done for my happiness. I'm often asked why I'm so happy and positive. People even say "what's wrong with you? You can't be happy all the time. Are you pretending?"
I've also had people (haters) block me on Facebook and later told me that it's because I'm "too positive." And they can't believe someone is like that..
My happiness comes down to the magic word... gratitude.
I start my day with writing 10 things I'm grateful for (and why) and then do numerous tasks throughout the day..
I end my day with thinking about the number 1 thing I'm grateful for from that day - doing this makes me sift through a day's worth of cool things and events to be grateful for. I then sleep feeling magical.
I highly recommend reading The Magic.
I wish you all peace of mind xx
