Heal Disease And Sickness With Thankfulness And Gratitude

Gratitude, It’s A State Of Mind And A Guiding Star

I can’t speak for everyone, but I sure am glad, I finally live most of my life in a place of gratitude. I am not bragging, I’m just claiming and acknowledging the blessings that an attitude of gratitude brings to me.

We Are Always Happy When We Are GratefulMy state of mind and spirit are not always perfect, but when my love for the attitude of gratitude even starts to fade I am quick to recognize it. I almost immediately, reset my course with gratitude once again being my guiding star. Living my life with my first intention being grateful for everything helps me to be more physically, psychology relationally and spiritually healthy.

 

Having an attitude of gratitude, means we live life at a higher vibration, making it easier for us, as well as those around us, to experience the joy of living at a higher level. Practicing an attitude of gratitude instills in us increased levels of peace of mind, happiness, vibrant health, and deeper, more satisfying personal relationships.

Gratitude is the one thing that cost us nothing to give, yet it attracts outrageous levels of abundance
in every area of our lives.

An attitude of gratitude seems to have an almost magical healing effect, as it clears karma while touching every part of our being, making every aspect of our life better. So, if you want to be in the best physical, psychological, relational and spiritual life, then it’s time to put your intentions on having an attitude of gratitude.

An Attitude of Gratitude Serves as the Foundation of all Healing

I have to share this with you, as it is one of the great truths, about gratitude. As a holistic practitioner, I help people to live more vibrant and healthy lives. Helping them onto to the pathway of gratitude is the first thing I always do, as I know that without they’re having an attitude of gratitude there is usually no lasting health for my clients. Yes, they get some good short-term results, as I teach them the proper ways to take care of themselves. The haunting thing is in most, case lasting healthful vibrancy eludes them if they are not able to enter into a heart of gratitude.

Having a heart of gratitude is not easy for many of my clients, we have to take baby-steps, as they have lived most of their lives caught up in emotional turmoil. Many of them have not learned the wonderful way of resting in an attitude of gratitude. Moving them towards holistic healing takes time, so we gently guide them in recognizing the little things to be grateful for first. Once they begin to practice giving thank for the smaller thing, they then soon start to acknowledge the good aspects of their lives and learn to give thanks.

We immediately see a powerful impact on their emotional and physical well-being. As our clients begin to live in “a heart of gratitude”, they start to count their blessings. All of them, without exception, feel happier, and that in turn, has a ripple effect on the rest of their life. They start to eat better, sleep better, exercise more, and undoubtedly they have fewer physical challenges. All I can say is Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Recent Scientific Studies

According to research by the Institute of HeartMath, a state of gratitude “improves the heart’s rhythmic functioning, which helps us to reduce stress, think more clearly under pressure and heal physically”. It’s physiologically impossible to be stressed and have a heart of gratitude at the same time.

Great Reasons to Live in Gratitude

 “In the midst of a grateful heart, we find the peace that passes our human understanding.”

Dr. Lisa Aspinwall, professor of psychology, University of Utah, “has determined that grateful people may be more likely to:

  • Take better care of themselves physically and mentally
  • Engage in more protective health behaviors and maintenance
  • Get more regular exercise
  • Eat a healthier diet
  • Have improved mental alertness
  • Schedule regular physical examinations with their doctor
  • Cope better with stress and daily challenges
  • Feel happier and more optimistic
  • Avoid problematic physical symptoms
  • Have stronger immune systems
  • Maintain a brighter view of the future

Being grateful keeps us from focusing too much on the past, or speculating too much into the future.

A grateful heart is a happy heart that keeps us present, and happy in the prIn the midst of a grateful heart, we find the peace that passes our human understanding.esent moment. When we are grateful, the so-called “challenges of life” fade away as we focus on the joy that accompanies our thoughts of gratefulness for whatever

comes our way. In the midst of a grateful heart, we find the peace that passes our human understanding. Even as life’s storms roars about us, we honestly feel peaceful and can be safe harbors for our fellow-man who has not yet found the peace. This beautiful attitude of gratitude can only come from a heart and a mind that is rejoicing in gratefulness.

 Break Down The Walls

When we greet the morning with our minds intention focused on the spirit of gratefulness, any walls of fear or judgment, towards oneself, or to others, are demolished. We can say thank you, thank you, thank you, letting the healing warmth of a grateful heart permeate our very essence. As we move through our day, we are not so easily thrown off by the twist and turns that are part of everyday life. We are fully able to set our life’s course with grace and ease as we follow the star of gratitude.

Because our intentions are focused on being grateful, we think less and less of ourselves, yet we are always alert to what is going on within us, and around us. Every aspect of life becomes more precious, holding deeper meaning than it did before we placed our intentions on being grateful. We see what is around us, and we become awestruck, almost reverent in our observations of all sentient beings and the earth itself.

As we now see and experience everything through the purifying filter of a grateful heart, we automatically attract more reasons, things, and situations for which to be grateful. The world seems to be so alive more than we could have ever imagined. Sometimes it is hard to tell if the joy and happiness we are feeling is coming from this earthly plain or a celestial dimension.

The world bathed in the loving light of gratitude seems ethereal, more stable, more trustworthy, more solid than ever. We reflect on the actuality of this state, and we know that we are one with each other, and with the spirit, and all is exactly, as it should be.

A Few Ways To Start Living In Gratitude…it only takes a smile

1. Count your blessings. Take a few moments right now and think of one thing tor that you are grateful. Smile and think about how wonderful it is to have something in your life that you make you feel grateful.

2. Think of someone who needs your loving thoughts. Smile and send a warm thought to them, fill your heart with gratefulness, as you are making a positive difference for them by just sending them loving thoughts.

3. Smile and say thank you, thank you, thank you! Whenever a sorrowful or negative thought enters your space, just say thank you, thank you, thank you.

4. Smile and give thanks for the food that you eat. Again a simple thank you, thank you, thank you, will do miracles.

5. Smile and ask the universe to provide you with a way to show your gratitude by helping another person feel cared for and loved.

“Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe, which change forever how we experience life and the world,”– John Milton

 Everything Is A Gift

With our intentions focused on making gratitude the foundation of our lives, we begin to leave negative thoughts and emotions behind. We no longer find ourselves having room for them in a world that unfolds in perfect grace where everything is a gift.

What Can You be Grateful For? Everything!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” – Albert Schweitzer

In All Things Be Grateful Show Gratitude

If you want more of everything that is good for you, then be grateful and express gratitude for everything that happens in your life. There are few things more important than maintaining an attitude of gratitude; after all, what else can you give a God who has everything?

Instinctively and experientially we know the importance of being grateful and showing gratitude, but I wanted some scriptural references, so  I looked up scriptures concerning thankfulness, gratefulness, and gratitude when I came across this passage in Luke.

“Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has will be given more; whoever does not have, even what he thinks he has will be taken from him.” 

I was having a difficult time understanding this verse until I took the liberty of adding in the word gratitude, then the verse made perfect sense, as its words now aligned with my instinctual and life experiences.

After reading and reading this passage in Luke, as well as related passages in Mark, this passage, as well as the other passage from Mark seem to be missing the word GRATITUDE. Without the word gratitude the verse, is confusing, even suggesting that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, which does not align with the Christs teachings.

Let’s take a look at what a vast difference this verse makes when we add the word gratitude to the verse.

Therefore consider carefully how you listen. Whoever has GRATITUDE will be given more; whoever does not have GRATITUDE, even what he thinks he has will be taken from him.”

By putting the word gratitude into the verse it brings the verse in line with the teachings and heart of Christ. Though more than two thousand years have passed since this verse was written, its truths are as relevant today as when Christ spoke the words.  

Being religious has nothing to do with our living out our lives in a state of gratefulness. The Creator meant for all of us to live an abundant life and a key to experiencing that life is to always remember to be grateful for everything and in all situations. Having a heart of gratefulness has proven to be one of the Creators universal laws. We can not live a useful life without it, as an attitude of gratitude has a positive effect on every aspect of our physical and spiritual lives.

Jesus teaches and encourages us to be grateful, for our lives are reflections of our thoughts, our thoughts are energy and become physical manifestations. Remember, whatever you think about the most you will attract, so when you’re in an attitude of gratitude, you will automatically draw abundance into your life.

I Am Grateful Action Plan

  • Each day, throughout the day, think about all that you’re grateful for.
  • Take the time to write down twenty-five things, challenges, or situations you are grateful for.
  • Post your list somewhere you can easily see it.
  • Read your list at least once a day and say out loud – Thank you, Thank you, thank you.
  • Update gratefulness list as more things you are grateful for come to mind. Focus in on having at least one-hundred things you are grateful for added to your list within thirty days.
  • Share what you are grateful for with family and friends.

 Feel the gratitude developing every cell of your body.  Let your attitude of gratitude draw more and more beautiful things into your life.  You deserve them.

Don’t Worry Be Happy!

What could be more important than being happy? I know that when I’m happy I find being kind, gentle and loving to be pretty easy; and being happy with my lot and grateful for every breath is a feeling surrounds me most all the time.   Being in this state of mind and heart helps me to become an active and compassionate Christ Conscious person, able to reach out to the hurting,  bringing them physical, spiritual and psychological comfort.       When our thoughts and lives reflect Christ Consciousness, instead of religion, philosophy, and dogma, we naturally live from the spirit, the heart and reflect the light of Christ, becoming patient, kind, gentle and loving with ourselves and others. This life of happiness helps our thoughts to reflect Christ’s thoughts, and we become His voice, hands, and feet, His very person on earth.

When our thoughts and lives reflect Christ Consciousness, instead of religion, philosophy, and dogma, we naturally live from the spirit, the heart and reflect the light of Christ. Moment by moment we become more patient, kind, gentle and loving with ourselves and others. This life of happiness helps our thoughts to reflect Christ’s thoughts, and we become His voice, hands, and feet, ect., His very person on earth.

When we are happy we find ourselves alive in Christ Consciousness, we are happy in most all circumstances and indeed count all things as gain when we leave ungentleness, unkindness, ungratefulness, and unhappiness behind.  Living in this way we make our lives and the world better.

Possessing all the religious knowledge in the world will not bring happiness, it cannot replace being gentle, kind, and loving to yourself and all creation. It’s in our being lights to the world the toughest life lessons are learned. It’s in the midst life’s challenges that we are given a chance to be happy and live out our Christ Consciousness, continuing to be happy, loving and fulfilled no matter what situation or problem arises.

“Pure happiness is the rightful and healthy condition of the soul, and
all may possess it if they live purely and unselfish. Have goodwill to all that lives, letting unkindness die, and greed and wrath so that your lives be made like soft air passing by.”

Happiness, Love, and  Blessings to All,

Everyone Is Different… Some Thoughtful Counsel For My Grandson’s

Everyone Is Different.

Everyone you meet will be different than you, in fact, there is no one like you. Each of us come into this world with so many differences that it would be impossible to address every difference here and now. So, my counsel is to not only accept other people’s differences but embrace their differences and learn all that you can about them. Some of the physical actions you can take are:

  1. Be more than tolerant, be loving and accepting of each person that comes into your life. Accept them just like they are. 
  2. Be patient and listen carefully to what people are saying. Listen more and speak less and you will get to really know the hearts and minds of other people.
  3. Be interested and flexible, every person deserves to be acknowledged for who they are. Learn about your friend’s culture, customs, and religious beliefs. Support them on their life journey.
  4. Always speak highly of others, when you talk about them, or say nothing at all. Every human being needs love and support. Don’t judge them unless you expect to be judged back.
  5. Always keep in mind that when we actually accept the difference between ourselves and others, we will always strive to be respectful, kind and understanding no matter how different we are from each other.

There is an old song that I love. “Red and yellow black and white they are precious in His sight, Jesus loves the little children of the world.” You to can love everyone when you love their differences.

Love and Blessings,

Robert ” Bobby” Morgan

 

 

A Mans Character Is Revealed In His Approach To Lifes Circumstances

The circumstances in which a man finds himself does not determine who the man is. Each situation he encounters gives him the opportunity to test himself and see whether his thoughts are divisive, self-serving, and mean-spirited or kind, loving, and virtuous. I believe that the man whose thoughts are focused on what is kind, loving and virtuous will live out their lives ineffective actions that are overflowing with the fruits that come from a good spirit.

Each of us is connected to the Great I Am through our thoughts. Our thoughts are the most powerful of tools as they empower us to do good or evil. We are made up of thoughts, we are not robots(unless we choose to be), but thinkers who have a free choice in every matter concerning our lives. We and we alone are the authors all of our thoughts. With each thought serving as the cornerstone of most everything, we can imagine into existence.

When we find ourselves not obtaining our hearts desires and thwarted at every step, it’s usually because we have not put much thought into what we are trying to achieve. When we think about and focus on our desires and live as if they had already been granted, we automatically lift ourselves out of every earthly quagmire and set ourselves up to feast on our fulfilled desires.

The kingdom of God is within us and recognizing that we are divine son’s and daughter’s of the I Am helps us to have divine thoughts which culminate in holy actions and divine ends. Our prayerful and humble recognition of who we are in Christ frees us from our self-imposed bondage, enabling us to think noble thoughts which in turn enable us to bring about physical demonstrations of healing, health, kindness, and love, in our world.

So, it’s not what we wish for that we get; but we get what we think about the most, as the thoughts we focus on the most, are the ones that come alive and form up in the physical realm. Having this understanding enables us to take responsibility for our thought life and what happens in our lives. We truly do have divine responsibility for our thought life as our thoughts can bring about pain and suffering or peace and love.

When our thoughts, prayers, and desires are manifested in harmony with our Christ Consciousness, we find ourselves experiencing the peace of God, as we’re no longer bound by conscious or unconscious thoughts that thwart our ability to manifest the righteous desires of our hearts.

All of us want better lives, but how many of us are willing to change ourselves, do what it takes to improve ourselves and the lives of those among us? When we improve and change ourselves, it sometimes means giving up the person who we thought we were. It sometimes means having to crucify our egos, dying to our earthly desires.

So, today we seek to improve our circumstance, not by changing the world and people around us, but by changing our own thoughts about who we are and how we can be loving, kind and generous to ourselves as well as to each person who comes into our lives. It’s my opinion that for myself, I must be willing to give up who I believe I am and die to my little earthly self so my eternal spiritual self can reflect the I Am’s divinity that is within me and makes up who I really am.

Blessings, Robert “Bobby” Morgan
