It is very important to have an attitude of gratitude in our lives.
What are you grateful for in your life? One of the techniques to immediately shift your thought process from negative to positive is to have an attitude of gratitude. It is when you start to think of and visualize the things in your life that you are grateful that you begin to shift your focus to all that is positive in your life. And what do you attract when you are in a positive vibration? Yes, you attract vibrations that are in harmony with your current state of vibrations. Everyday, think of at least one thing in your life that you are truly grateful for – your family, your wisdom, your consciousness, your lovely pet, etc. – and thank someone (either God or whomever you consider to be the all pervading energy) for that.
The Universe is neutral. It will give you what you ask from it. You can never really attract positivity by always complaining of your present state of affairs. You need to make a conscious effort to think and act on achieving positive outcomes.
