If you’ve ever dabbled into Law of Attraction principles or other spiritual practices designed to help you grow your business and manifest your dreams, you’ve likely been encouraged to have a gratitude practice.
And, if you’re like a lot of entrepreneurs, including myself. you may find yourself rolling your eyes at this advice.
It sounds too easy, doesn’t it? Just come up with a list of things you’re grateful and that somehow is going to help you manifest your desires.
Precisely how is THAT going to make you more successful? Especially if you’re struggling right now and the last thing you feel is grateful.
So, I get it. I was skeptical too.
Then, I read a study in the book “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself” by Dr. Joe Dispenza.
A group of participants were asked to hold a beacon with DNA strands in it while focusing on unwinding the strands. If they just used their thoughts to unwind them (like what we all learned in the movie “The Secret”, which was anything you thought about, you attracted into your life) nothing happened.
BUT, the group of participants who felt grateful as they thought about unwinding the strands, they were actually able to unwind them by 25%.
The key is to combine the emotions of gratitude with the power of your thoughts. If you can do this, and do this consistently (like every day) you’ll manifest what you desire.
Gratitude is one of the highest vibrations there is. That means the longer you’re able to stay in gratitude, the longer your energy is operating at that higher level, and as like attracts like, that high vibrational energy is attracting your desires to you.
Now, I’m grossly simplifying Dr. Dispenza’s work here, but if you want a couple of pointers to get started, take a few minutes to watch below:
