7 Ways to Cultivate Gratitude

The best way to keep the positive energy flowing in your life is to practice gratitude.

Being grateful and giving back to the world keeps the energy of abundance flowing. You can think of it as completing a circuit. You receive your desires, your gratitude shares that energy and then it comes flowing back to you again. When you are grateful the entire world benefits!

7 Ways to Cultivate Gratitude

♥️ It's A Daily Thing

Keep your awareness high and thank people throughout your day for even those little things in life that make you smile. A sincere thanks to the person you buy your cup of coffee from in the morning or the bus driver if you take public transport to work or wherever else you can goes a long way. Since other people's thoughts also have influence on reality, if even at an unconscious level, these positive thoughts in your direction can give you a boost in more ways than one.

♥️ Re-frame

If you have a negative experience with someone, immediately challenge yourself to find something about them that you feel grateful about. This can be hard, but it is rewarding. It frees up energy wasted on anger and frustration and puts to good use. By focusing on the good people have to offer, despite their imperfections, we recognize the divinity in all including ourselves.

♥️ Fast From Negative Talk For Ten Days

Do you have what it takes to say "thank you" to the universe by not saying a negative word about anyone or anything for ten days? This is a difficult, but worthy way to express gratitude. Gossip is also barred. In the early 1900's this method was used by Law of Attraction teachers as an important part of their lessons. They credit it with creating millionaires.

♥️ Say Thank You By Volunteering

Are you experiencing abundance due to your work with the Law of Attraction? Is there money in your bank account and food in your refrigerator? Are you now in a happy relationship? A great way to thank the universe is by giving back to it. Why not volunteer at the soup kitchen or the animal shelter? Or help coach a youth sports team? No matter your choice helping the less fortunate is the finest form of expressing gratitude.

♥️ Share

The Law of Attraction becomes easier and easier to understand as you start using it in your life.
Real miracles will start to happen again and again. How many people do you know that you care about who could also benefit from these teachings?

A good first step to this is saying "thank you" to them and introducing them to this course. After that why not also act as their mentor? You could be the person that helps them find a way to totally revolutionize every single area of their life. How is that for gratitude?

♥️ Give back to the universe

It will set the stage for your next step as a reality creator! Being brave enough to say thank you will repay you again and again!

Mindset Is Everything

When you think about the women you look up to the most in your life and in business, what comes to mind?

Charisma, experience, and expertise are usually at the top of the list, but would it surprise you to know that those are not the most important characteristics?

In fact, while those things do make a difference,  there’s one thing that is absolutely a game changer, and you can’t even see it.

Mindset.

It’s true. In everything you do, whether in business or in life, your mindset is the determining factor when it comes to your success and life. Without the right mindset, you will forever be attracting + working the wrong people, situations and even clients!

So if you’re really ready to manifest the life you WANT and DESERVE, you have to do some internal work. It’s time to make some changes to your own mindset.

Changing Your Attitude

One thing charismatic and personable people have in common is a good attitude. Think about it; you’ll probably never see these women you admire complaining about how the kids are sick, “again!” or that the cable repair guy is 40 minutes late, or even that the car blew a tire.

Instead, you see their expressions of gratitude in everything. If the kids are sick, they’re grateful to have a business that allows them to stay home and play nurse. If the cable guy is late, they’re grateful to have 40 extra minutes to read a book instead of watch television. And if the car died in the middle of running a week’s worth of errands, they’re happy to have found a mechanic who does great work at a reasonable price.

If you find yourself complaining—even in your head—turn your attitude around. There’s nearly always something to be grateful for, even in the worst situations. And when you can rethink and revise your attitude for the better, you’ll not only be happier, but you’ll start to attract what you actually WANT and love!

Growing Your Confidence

Here’s another thing these women you admire have in common: confidence. They believe in what they do. They believe in their ability to help others achieve the same thing. They walk with confidence filled with the knowledge that what they are about to say will change the lives of those who are listening. They don’t question or dislike who they are.

It’s not cocky or arrogant, it’s just confidence. And if you don’t have it yet, you can take steps to increase it.

Start by asking yourself, in any new or uncomfortable situation, “What’s the worst that could happen?”

Of those worst-case scenarios, look at what you have control over, and let the rest go!

So if you’ve agreed to speak in front of a small group of business owners, and your fear is that you’ll flub your speech, practicing beforehand will greatly improve your confidence.

Next, get inside the head of someone who is confident in what you’re about to do. Walk onto that stage as if you’ve been doing it for years, and not only will you feel more confident, but you’ll be more confident. You can use the “as if” attitude in everything from creating a new product to closing a sale. Whenever you feel your confidence failing, just remember to act as if you’ve done this successfully hundreds of times.

Just like how the person you’re talking to on the phone can hear a smile in your voice, and you can feel when someone in a bad mood enters the room --those around you (and the universe) can sense your mindset and respond accordingly!

Daily Habits For A Magical Morning

Everyone experiences a stressful morning occasionally. It might be that your alarm clock didn’t ring or your car wouldn’t start. Maybe you forgot the report you needed at the house or you left your grocery list on the kitchen counter.

If your mornings always feel stressful, then it’s a sign something needs to change. The good news is most morning stress can be eliminated by creating new habits. It can take a while for a habit to become routine but once it does, your morning will be so much smoother.

Here’s how you can reclaim your mornings:

💓 Prepare the night before.
A lot of morning stress can be eliminated by preparing for the morning in advance. Choose your clothes the night before so you already know what you’re going to wear. Pack your lunch and leave it in the fridge so you only have to grab it as you head out.

 💓Skip the news.
Thanks to smartphones and tablets, you can now check the news without ever having to leave the comfort of your bed. But reading or viewing the latest new stories can cause you to experience anxiety and discouragement. Instead of looking forward to a new day, you feel overwhelmed and fearful.

This doesn’t mean you have to avoid the news all day. Staying connected to what’s happening around you is important. But pick and choose what types of news you really need to hear first thing in the morning. For example, you could look over the entertainment news or sport scores but choose to skip the main headlines until later.

💓 Play positive tunes.
Create a morning playlist of music that makes you feel encouraged and play it as you’re starting your day. This will help you wake up and make it easier for you to focus on the positive. Music can also boost your productivity and creativity.

💓 Don’t check your email or social media.
Most people experience their highest energy levels after waking up. Yet the first thing you may be tempted to do is check your email and social media networks. The problem with this is your inbox and networks are often filled with “urgent” messages. These urgent messages quickly crowd out the important tasks you need to get done today. The next thing you know its noon and all you’ve accomplished is answering your email and checking social media.

To prevent this, don’t check your email or social networks until later. After an hour or two of working, take a break to check your messages. Since you’ve already tackled the important tasks today, you can devote as much energy as needed to the urgent tasks you ignored earlier.

Morning stress can be a sign that it’s time to step back and evaluate your routines. Look at what’s causing you the most stress and seek simple solutions to fix them. By doing this, you can change your mornings from stressful to delightful!

Gratitude Is The Attitude To Have

Real talk - You are using the law of attraction in your business every single day. Believe it or not.

The Law Of Attraction is a universal law, just like the law of gravity. You don’t walk out of your house and doubt that your feet will remain firmly planted on the ground. Am I right?

If you’re struggling to attract clients into your business, struggling financially, losing the joy in your day, comparing other’s success to your lack… It’s tough love time:

That’s all on you, babe. Those are the kind of vibrations you are putting out into the Universe and they are exactly what’s coming back to you. Your thoughts become vibes become manifestations in your reality.

The struggle is there because, even though, you may be doing the physical steps of writing your goals down, reading them everyday, maybe even writing affirmations... DOING (keyword here, doing...) whatever it takes to make it happen, internally you’re vibing on scarcity: feeling/vibing like crap.

To change your reality you have to change your mindset and the fastest way to elevate your vibe drastically is ‘active gratitude’.

The Universe doesn’t read what you’re writing on paper like a wish list, it CONNECTS with your vibrations and gives you whatever your focusing/feeling on. Abundance or struggle, positive or negative, The Universe doesn’t differentiate.

So, if your vibrations are low, guess what? You are going to attract more of all those struggles you don’t want into your life.

Ready to become an expert at using the law of attraction to expand your life?

Get ACTIVELY grateful!

2 simple steps: begin your day in gratitude and end your day with gratitude.

Wake up every morning and express sincere gratitude for what you HAVE, no matter how much or how little.

I suggest looking for 5 things within the first 10 minutes of waking that you can express gratitude for. After each thing/person, you name say “Thank you!” 3 times. I found that by saying my gratitude three times, my creative energy and enthusiasm increased. I immediately felt happier, vibed higher.  When you create, you need that strong positive energy to move the manifestation forward.

From your spouse to your favorite hair dryer, to a sunny sky. Looking to attract more money? Be grateful for that $10 in your bank account instead of worrying about it.

When you are ACTIVELY grateful for all that you have, you constantly attract more of the things you love into your life.

Every night, just before you drift off to sleep mentally list 10 things you’re grateful for that happened during the day.

Again, repeating “Thank you” 3 times after each thing. Instead of falling asleep to worry and stresses you fall asleep to the high vibe of abundance and that is extremely powerful.

Do these 2 simple things every day for a week and journal your daily results. I’ve had clients find items that had been lost for months, receive a free meal at restaurants, finally nail that big promotion, mend a broken relationship and receive unexpected checks in the mail.

You will see the Universe show up with some pretty cool things for you!

And you know what's more fun than doing it all by yourself?

Doing it together with babes that life your vibes & are cheering up for you!

How To Choose Your Mala Prayer Beads & Meanings

 

Ok y’all, mala beads are taking over people’s wardrobes – and it’s about time. What is this fashion trend I’m missing out on all about, you ask?

 

Choosing the right mala prayer beads can seem daunting. It’s important to remember that depending on the person, a mala necklace or bracelet can represent something different or serve a different purpose.

No two malas are the same – whether it serves as something to inspire you, as a reminder of your intention, or a tool for meditation, it’s unique and specific to you.

how to pick the right mala

There is no right or wrong way to choose mala prayer beads. While some believe that you should study and consider the color, shape, intention, energy and beauty of each mala, the best way is to let your intuition guide you.

You might be drawn to different prayer beads for different reasons. Whichever mama you are first drawn to is often the one that you are destined to have.

Regardless of whether you are drawn to it by something as simple as color or stone, it’s best to follow your heart and allow it to happen.

researching your mala prayer beads

Once you feel you have chosen your mala, do some research and learn about the intention and meaning of your chosen beads. You might be pleasantly surprised – more often than not, it will be exactly what you’re looking for or needing in that moment. Your intention helped guide you there.

what to ask yourself when choosing your next mala

Some questions we find ourselves asking when looking for our next mala are:

  • What are you trying to manifest?
  • Are you looking to cultivate more strength, more love, more truth?
  • Will you be meditating or manifesting? Or both?

Depending on your answer to these questions, there may be a mala that is more suitable to you than others, on paper.

However, if different to the mala you were initially drawn to, we strongly encourage you to compare the two. What drew you to your initial mala? Where do these malas differ?  

Regardless of the mala you choose or the intentions you have, the most important thing to remember when beginning this journey is to follow your heart. Once you’ve chosen and received your mala, it’s best to activate your prayer beads to align it with your intentions and your energy. Follow your heart.
