This past Thursday, people all over the United States celebrated Thanksgiving, a day to consciously reflect on what we are grateful for. Whether you are American or not, this practice has a valuable esoteric meaning. This is how we tap into the vibration of gratitude.
Scientists are able to measure emotions using brain wave scans and electrodes on the skin. When paired with self report, they are able to order the wavelengths of various emotional states. This provides us with valuable information of how we are interacting with the quantum field.
Each of our emotions are linked to a vibrational wavelength. When we feel emotions like anger, fear, or lust, we are engaging in lower vibrational states. The highest vibrational emotions we can have are bliss and love. If we have significant trauma, it may be difficult or even impossible to make the leap from fear to bliss.
Sometimes it can be hard to feel intense emotions like love or bliss when our lives aren’t going the way we want them to. Moving up in emotional states is like climbing a staircase; we make incremental changes. Because of that, we can always access the “middle” level of emotions.
Gratitude is the easiest of these to access, and better yet, it is in the “upper middle” level. It sounds very cliché, but we always have something to be grateful for. The issue most people run into is they believe certain things are worthy of more or less gratitude. “I have the car, house and spouse I want, that’s worthy of a 10 on the gratitude scale!” Except, there isn’t a scale.
If you have a car at all, you can be grateful. If you have a place to sleep, you can be grateful. Even if you are not in a relationship, you can be grateful for the freedom you have because you’re single. Sometimes we have to change how we look at what we have in our life to find gratitude.
Okay, well what if you don’t have any of that and you’re reading this article at the public library? Then you won’t have to look far to find gratitude. You can be grateful to be alive. You can be grateful for the relationships you have with others. You can be grateful for your arms and legs. And that’s not to say if you have a car and home you can’t be grateful for these things too!
So what does practicing gratitude do other than literally raise your vibration?
When we live in a state of gratitude we will find more things to be grateful for. Not just from a law of attraction point of view, but we will become grateful for things we never realized we had. Many of us live our lives taking things for granted and we don’t even realize it. We don’t appreciate food until we’ve gone hungry. We don’t appreciate our sight until we lose it. There are many things we overlook because we have spent so much time having it. We think it will always be there.
From the quantum perspective, we will attract more things into our lives which we can be grateful for. Perhaps I am not in a romantic partnership but I am practicing being grateful for the relationships I have. I may find myself dating someone because it is another relationship I will be grateful to have. The same thing can happen with the car, the house, the job and dream vacation. Anything and everything.
By redirecting our focus from what we want to what we have we give the universe (or whatever you choose to believe in) the opportunity to do its best work. No one likes their boss micromanaging their job. Your higher power is the same way. Give it some space to work instead of constantly checking in to see if the project is finished.
The best part is from here we can more easily access the highest vibrational states. When gratitude becomes a way of life for us the next step naturally becomes moving into love and bliss. These are the highest emotional states and most people have experienced them at some point in their life. If you haven’t, well then you’re in for a treat.
If we are able to maintain high vibrational states for an extended duration or access them frequently throughout the day, then it is like pouring gasoline on our manifestation fire. Whether you will manifest your dreams more quickly or just have the perception of that because you aren’t micromanaging, I can’t really say for sure. What I do know is that you won’t even care because you have moved from a state of wanting to a state of being.
The most peculiar thing I personally have found on my journey is realizing what I already have is enough. I used to think I needed a bunch of material things to be happy but what I really find valuable these days is having passion. Doing things I enjoy like writing this blog and helping people in my community. These are some of the ways I find gratitude in my own life. Even when I get caught in a thought loop and worry about finances, things usually workout better than I expect if I take a step back and focus on being of service to others. For that I am grateful.
