As many of us move into a season of holiday celebrations, this is a perfect time to give yourself the gift of Gratitude.

Gratitude is a choice, a conscious one that we can all make. And on a practical level, the payoffs are tremendous.

Scientific research has shown that gratitude is one of the emotions that has a direct measurable effect on the DNA in our bodies. In one study, gratitude was shown to relax human strands of DNA, giving us greater access to our genetic potential for health and vitality.

The Law Of Vibration, clarified through quantum physics studies, has shown that our thoughts, feelings, and emotions are all vibrations. What we vibrate at is what we vibrate to and reflects what is naturally attracted to our personal dynamic energy field. Gratitude is a high vibration emotion that attracts positive experiences naturally to us and repels negative ones.

Extensive research has shown that positive emotions strengthen our bodies while negative emotions weaken us. Gratitude is one of the strongest.

We have seen through Dr. Masuru Emoto's research on water molecules that thoughts and expressions of gratitude create beautiful water crystals, and can actually transform amorphous blobs of polluted molecules. Considering we are all about 75% water and that water is the molecule of life in our world, an attitude of gratitude can be a powerful catalyst for change. (For more information, visit www.hado.net)

Best yet, it's a gift that you can give yourself and every one around you for fun and for free.

You can't be hateful when you're grateful. When you are focused on the wonderful, delicious aspects of life, you can't fall into the trap of lack and limitation thinking that brings with it the ideas of being a victim full of worry, doubt, and fear. As Wallace Wattles writes in The Science of Getting Rich, "The whole process of mental adjustment and attunement can be summed up in one word: Gratitude . . . Many people who order their lives rightly in all other ways are kept in poverty by their lack of gratitude." (To download your copy of The Science of Getting Rich, click here).

As a conscious creator, it's important to remember that Gratitude provides an effective protection from all sorts of negativity that can block our manifestations from coming into our world. To quote Wattles again, "And if your gratitude is strong and constant, the reaction in formless substance will be strong and continuous; the movement of the things you want will be always toward you."

Here are some tools to support you in creating, maintaining and sustaining an attitude of Gratitude in your own life:

1. Practice Gratitude before you go to sleep. Remember, the time just before you go to sleep is a powerful one, setting the intentions for your subconscious mind to create as your physical body rests. Write out a list of 10 things you are grateful for each evening, hardwiring in your belief that life is good so that your subconscious mind can act on it.

2. Express Gratitude when you wake up. Begin every day with Gratitude and simply saying "Thank You". Get into the active joy and spirit of finding out how wonderful your life really is. Say Thank You to the alarm clock because you can hear it and you have someplace to go. Say Thank You for your eyes that see the sunlight, Thank You for the clothes you get to wear, Thank You for the water to wash your body and to brush your teeth, Thank You for modern sanitation, and just let the list go on.

3. Express Gratitude throughout your day. Absolutely indulge yourself in Gratitude. Actively look for things to be grateful for and when you find them say Thank You. Say Thank You to those who help you, say Thank You for the opportunities to grow, say Thank You to those who give you the chance to do a kindness, and say Thank You to yourself for being so magnificent.

Turn your "have to's" into "get to's" and watch your attitude shift. Do you "get" to take out the trash? How wonderful that people are paid to come to collect and remove it. Do you "get" to wash the dishes? Get into gratitude that you have food to eat, dishes to eat on, and water to wash with. Do you "get" to go to work? Be grateful that you have a job and the opportunity to participate in life.

Recognize that every single experience in your life is a gift and a blessing, and celebrate it!

4. Go on a Gratitude walk. Whenever you're taking a break or simply walking in your life, become aware of your surroundings and become profoundly grateful. Grateful for the cars that give people freedom, for the birds that are singing, for the rain on your face, for your feet that carry you, grateful for the sounds of life around you, grateful to be alive to experience this new day! Let the feelings of Gratitude build up inside of you and then watch the magic that happens!

5. Write Gratitude letters. Reflect on this past year and make a list of 10 people who have made a difference in your life. Take the time to write a card or letter expressing your heartfelt gratitude to them and let them in on the details of how wonderful they are and how they have made a difference for you.

6. Participate in the Gratitude project. With the focus on Gratitude as the master key in life, you can be a part of a worldwide 42-day experiment to shift your consciousness and make a difference in the world. To sign up or learn more, click here.

Gratitude is a gift that keeps giving, a gift that is entirely free, and a gift that you can give yourself in any moment when you choose. Give yourself that gift starting today.

YOU deserve it!

To your wealth and success,

"If you do not fall down on your knees each day with overwhelming gratitude for your blessings - your multiplying multitudes of blessings - then you just have not yet seen the big picture."

- Sir John Templeton



I remember the day he walked into the workshop room. There was a calm, a peace, an ease that was almost oozing from his pores. Normally an intense and animated person, he relaxed into the chair, looked at us all, and said confidently "I gave up anger."

The effect was dramatic, visible, and impressive. His whole posture and way of being had shifted. As he explained it, he decided he was tired of getting angry, that anger did not serve him in his life any longer, and so he made the decision in his moment of clarity to simply "give it up".

Now, "deciding" is a powerful word. It means " to determine or settle" according to Webster's and, yet, with the "-cide" suffix it has a greater meaning in as to kill and be done with completely. Homicide, suicide, insecticide are some examples that may illustrate the point more clearly.

More than that, his decision to "give up" anger was brilliant. In the process of "giving up", we literally surrender our concerns to Higher wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and guidance. In that realm, all things are healed, all answers are delivered, all problems are resolved. With this decision, he surrendered to win.

So, my question to you is: Are you ready to give up?

Are you finally ready to let go and give yourself the gift of freedom? Are you ready to release any ideas of lack and limitation? Are you ready to let go of guilt, remorse, regret, jealousy, envy, and failure? Are you ready to be free from the worry, doubt, and fear habits? Are you willing to release judgment of yourself and others?

Are you ready to surrender to win???

If you are, there is a process I can suggest that will support you. It's a powerful one that I use with my workshop groups that has a magnificent effect. The end of the year is a wonderful time to do this exercise, as you can set your intention to leave the burdens, habits, thoughts, ideas, memories, and beliefs that no longer serve or support you in the year you're preparing to leave behind. It is, in fact, a perfect time to release and let go of anything you no longer choose.

Here's what to do. Take a clean sheet of paper and write at the top of the page "It is my intention to release and let go, and to leave behind in the year 2005 the following things:" There's no special magic to the words, so feel free to create your own. The important thing to be sure to include is the intention, the release, and the letting go.

Then, list the things you have decided to release and give up. You may choose to review the past year and consider situations that challenged you or made you feel less than your best. There may be people, attitudes, actions, or beliefs that have held you back from experiencing or enjoying success. Use these reflections to help identify what it is time for you to be free from.

Once you have completed your list, prepare a fire in a safe environment, read your intention statement and your list out loud, and then place your paper in the fire as you say "I release it. I release it. I release it." Watch to make sure that your paper burns completely, so that you know that the things you've been attached to are entirely gone.

When you are done, take a few moments to enjoy the freedom, the peace, the lightness, and the joy that this release brings. CONGRATULATE yourself for having the courage to move forward on your path of freedom, for honoring yourself with this great gift. CELEBRATE yourself for being willing to give up, to surrender to win!!!

YOU deserve it!!!


"Our primary problem with negative emotion is that we rarely think we have it. Yet, if we were flowing the high frequency of joy all the time, rather than any lower vibration which joy is not, we would be overflowing in such a profusion of prosperity, affluence, and success - not to mention sublime happiness, perfect health and well-being - that none of this would matter."

- Lynn Grabhorn in Excuse Me, Your Life Is Waiting
