5 Gratitude Practices to Raise Your Vibration PLUS 50 Inspiring Gratitude Quotes

“May the gratitude in my heart kiss all the universe.” ~ Hafiz

Gratitude can mean many things to many people, but in its simplistic essence it means “being thankful”. It’s developing the attitude of gratitude for everything in our life. Big or small. Good or bad.

All great spiritual masters, thought leaders, successful entrepreneur etc. have emphasised the need to live in gratitude for true success. For when we can’t appreciate what we have, how can we appriciate what is going to come to us. We will be too blinded by the negativity, to even notice a blessing/opportunity, even if its right under our nose.

While we all understand this meaning of gratitude, do we really imbibe it in our life?

I personally believe in the power of gratitude and more so in the power of having a daily gratitude practice. The first step in healing all past pain and trauma begins with gratitude. Vibrationally, as we are all energy beings, Love & Gratitude top the list of emotions that have the highest vibration. There has been research done by the likes of Louise Hay, Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Deepak Chopra etc. on the targetted benefits of practicing gratitude daily on mind-body-soul.

5 Gratitude Practices to Raise Your Vibration

“Opening your eyes to more of the world around you can deeply enhance your gratitude practice.” ~ Derrick Carpenter

Here are 5 tried and tested gratitude practices, that will raise your vibration so that you can tune into the beautiful Unversal vibration of love and happiness daily.

1} Be grateful in bad situations: Often it’s in the bad situations that our faith in the Divine is tested the most. It is especially in these situations when you need to focus on the good instead. No matter how difficult the situation is, focus on one small good thing/person/lesson to be thankful for and keep your energy on that feeling. This conscious effort to stay in a positive vibration instead of a negative one has the power to expand your energy field ten folds.

2} Be thankful in advance: One of the most powerful forms of gratitude is the kind you can feel in advance. Like saying, “I am grateful for what tomorrow will bring.” or “I am thankful for the blessing of tomorrow’s meeting/presentation/exam etc.” The reason this form of gratitude practice is so powerful is, that you are already fine tuning your energies for the day/event ahead of time, thereby ensuring that the Universe follows through. It also brings forth a level of faith in the Divine that only works wonders on your mental state.

3} Do a Gratitude Walk: As a practice when you feel muddled and confused, go for a walk, a gratitude walk. This walk can become your daily walk as well…While you walk, notice things around you and find the good in them. Notice nature, feel the fresh air, notice the innocent smile of a child, admire a wonderfully playful pet. This conscious effort to look outside of yourself and feel grattiude for the things around you has a positive effect on your complete vibration. One, it will make you shift your focus towards the wonder and awe of the universe. Two, it will offer clarity of thought, so that when you go back home you can calmly handle the situation, rather than get agigitated as you would’ve before the walk. If you can maintain this gratitude walk daily, you will live in a calm and serene mind, which is such a heavenly state. Try it 🙂

4} Maintain a Gratitude Jar: This one has been tried and tested so many times, you can see Pinterest images of beautiful gratitude jars all over the place. To maintain a gratitude jar all you need is a jar and small pieces of paper and a pen. As a ritual, daily or atleast thrice a week, you and your family members can write what they are grateful for and put the chit in the jar. As the jar keeps filling up, you will feel your mood feeling better too. And on the off day, when you or any of your family members are feeling down, you can open up the jar and read a few of the notes you wrote. This will instantly bring you back to the vibration of gatefulness and make you feel oh so good. I already have a huge jar all planned to start for 2020 ❤

5} Write a Gratitude Journal: For those of you who have been reading the articles here, know how much I vouch for the healing benefits of a gratitude journal. I can’t emphasize on the importance of writing a gratitude journal enough. Its healing, its calming, it provides clarity, it helps you set posiive goals, it empowers you to do more and be more. All you need is a small note book dedicated to writing 5 things you are grateful for daily. You can ideally do this before going to bed, as it helps you to relive your day and find the good in it, thereby helping you to sleep in a vibration of thankfulness.

It is important for you to create a daily practice of gratitude which is easy, sustainable and consistent.

  1. The practice of gratitude – especially your first suggestion: finding the good in the bad – has changed my life. It is a matter of conscious effort to change our perspective this way – our brain is naturally focused on bad, danger – but it makes a world of difference.

  2. Elle Sommer

    Wonderful reminders Zeenat. I haven’t heard of a ‘gratitude jar’ but I love that idea. And to look at them when feeling down. I think I’d also like to look at them maybe once a week or a month, just to see how many things there are to be grateful for. I think I’m going to suggest this to my family and maybe a different coloured paper for each one so they could easily pick their’s out if it was a monthly habit.

    The quotes are awesome!

  3. I loved this post a lot. Recently I tried the journal. Noticed it makes little difference. But how can it shut down the angry feelings and thoughts from lacking?

  4. I love how unique some of these practices are, Zeenat – like being grateful in difficult situations. If we start to do that, we will truly transform ourselves. And also being grateful in advance! That had never occurred to me. Thanks for these new ideas!!!!!
