Imagine a life where every moment is filled with joy, abundance, and an unwavering sense of appreciation. No it’s not too good to be true. In fact, this is the life we were born to live and if we’re not, then the practice of gratitude can help us get there.
Why We Need the Practice of Gratitude
In our fast-paced and demanding world, it’s easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of stress, responsibilities, and the pursuit of success. We often overlook the simple but profound power of gratitude, a force that has the potential to transform our lives in ways we never thought possible. By embracing the practice of gratitude, we unlock a gateway to a happier, more fulfilled existence. Here are ten incredible ways in which gratitude can positively impact your life and leave a lasting imprint of joy and contentment.
The Practice of Gratitude will:
Elevate Your Abundance Shift:
The practice of Gratitude shifts your focus from what is lacking in your life to the countless blessings and opportunities that surround you. By practicing gratitude for what you have or where you are, you cultivate a mindset of abundance that attracts even more abundance into your life.
Expressing gratitude towards your loved ones creates a deeper connection and fosters stronger bonds. The practice of gratitude has the power to transform ordinary interactions into moments of genuine appreciation, reinforcing the love and support between individuals.
Conquer Mental Challenges:
When faced with challenges, gratitude acts as a shield, enabling you to navigate adversity with greater resilience. By acknowledging the lessons and growth opportunities that come with difficulties, the practice of gratitude empowers you to overcome obstacles and emerge stronger.
The practice of Gratitude has been scientifically proven to enhance physical health. It lowers stress levels, strengthens the immune system, and promotes better sleep, leading to increased vitality and overall well-being.
The Gratitude Factor:
By focusing on the positive aspects of your life, the practice of gratitude naturally nurtures optimism. It allows you to see setbacks as temporary and failures as stepping stones towards future success. A grateful mindset empowers you to approach life with unwavering positivity.
The practice of Gratitude teaches you to appreciate yourself for who you are, imperfections and all. It frees you from the shackles of self-criticism and self-doubt, enabling you to embrace your uniqueness and cultivate self-love.
When you commit to the practice of gratitude, you declutter your mind from negative thoughts and worry. This mental clarity enables you to make better decisions, set clear goals, and take focused action towards the life you desire.
The practice of Gratitude opens the floodgates of inspiration and creativity. When you appreciate the beauty of the world around you, you become more attuned to the intricate details and hidden wonders, fueling your imagination and igniting your creative spark.
The law of attraction states that like attracts like. By embodying gratitude, you radiate positive energy and attract more blessings into your life. The practice of Gratitude creates a magnet for abundance, manifesting your desires and dreams in remarkable ways.
Present Moment Magic:
The practice of Gratitude anchors you firmly in the present moment, allowing you to fully experience and savor life’s experiential moments. It releases you from the grip of the past and the worries of the future, granting you the freedom to embrace the beauty of the now.
Gratitude Versus Appreciation
Gratitude is different to appreciation. It’s lower on the soul’s blueprint. In other words, there are higher vibrations we can reach for and gratitude is not as elevated as appreciation but it’s often much easier to attain.
For instance, my daughter recently had her house broken into and her car stolen. She felt violated and it knocked her emotions around. But through this she felt grateful. She was grateful that they didn’t enter her bedroom while she was sleeping. She was grateful that she didn’t disturb the intruders. But she wasn’t appreciative of the experience. So she could use the practice of gratitude but not quite reach the selflessness of appreciation.
However, the practice of gratitude is not merely a fleeting emotion; it’s a transformative way of life. By incorporating gratitude into your daily routine, you invite a multitude of blessings, joy, and fulfillment into every aspect of your existence. Embrace the power of gratitude, and witness how it can reshape your world and unlock a life of infinite possibilities.
How to Incorporate the Practice of Gratitude
Here are a few ways you can incorporate the practice of gratitude into your daily routine:
- Practicing gratitude through writing. Start a gratitude journal. Each day, write down a few things that you are grateful for. It can be something as simple as the sunshine or your morning cup of coffee.
- Practicing gratitude for the people around you. Take a moment to tell your friends, family, and coworkers how much you appreciate them.
- Practice gratitude with strangers. Practice random acts of kindness. Doing small acts of kindness for others can help to boost your own happiness and make the world a better place.
- Say “thank you” more often. Show gratitude for the small things in life, like a nice gesture or a kind word.
The practice of gratitude is not only good for our own well-being, but it helps to make the world a better place. It’s a win-win situation. So, let’s all make a conscious effort to be more gracious in our daily lives and spread some positivity and kindness. Remember, the more grateful we feel, the more goodness will come our way.
But here’s the catch, the practice of gratitude takes… practice!

Who am I?
I’m Gayle Maree, creator of 6 Dimensions of Healing, author, mother, Past Life Therapist and Spiritual Counselor for over 23 years.
Someone once told me (a well-respected mentor) that people need “experts” to live a life they value… and I didn’t believe them.
I thought everybody could do it on their own because I did. I figured out what didn’t work in my life and then I changed it. Actually, I changed me. And it was a LOT of work!
Not because I was trying to impress those that told me I had a ‘bad attitude’ or I had something to prove to people who thought I was lousy at pretty well everything, but because there were aspects of me that even I didn’t like. I wanted improvements in me and my life.
Change Versus Comfort
It was obvious to me that if I didn’t make changes I could expect more of the same in my life as before. The same things that didn’t work, the same relationships that my parents had.
I wanted more. Mostly, I wanted my kids to be proud of me. Damn it, I wanted to be proud of myself.
So, I set about what would be a continuous, amazing journey.
I’ve been with my Spiritual Soulmate over 30 years now and we still work on the relationship, we work on improving us, because we know that whatever we want, to get it we need to be different to how we were.
And I listen so much more now because I value the wisdom of my non-physical guides who have been with me for as long as I can remember.
Now it’s your turn
This is the same path I used to make the changes that led to a valued and prosperous life. So much more than I ever imagined.
The path is laid out in our book 6 Dimensions of Healing
