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.

6 Ways to Stop Taking Things Personally

“Nobody can hurt me without my permission.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

At the core, we are social beings. We tend to define ourselves by the relationships we nurture around us.

On a daily basis, we interact with a so many different people. Some are close and intimate, some are strangers. While all our interactions need to be mindful, the level of depth of the relationship directly affects the intensity of our interaction with that person.

Some people we get along with fabulously, while others not so much. Communicating and connecting with some people is harder than with others and this usually takes an emotional toll on us. THIS is where we start taking things personally, because our sensitivities to what these people say/do is heightened because of the friction that is already present in the relationship.

When we take things personally, we become sensitive to the words or actions of others or we interpret things in a negative way.

5 Beautiful Ways to Embrace Your True Self

“Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.” ~ John Jakes

Being yourself isnt a choice. Its a way of life. Period.

Being you is not always the easiest thing to be. Believe me I have had a hard time in the past just being me until I found out who I was.

Embracing your true self means to celebrate your individuality – learning to express yourself and be happy with who you are. For some it’s learning to love yourself, for others, it’s not hiding who you are or changing things about you to fit in. I fall in both those categories. And its amazing how everyday I learn something new about myself and strive to unleash it to the world…all because I am ready to do the inner work to be authentically ME.
