A friend of mine wrote this article on the law of attraction and Thanksgiving… thought I’d share it with you here… enjoy!
No one can doubt that Thanksgiving Day is that special day to surround ourselves with family and friends. It’s a day that is heaped with the special tradition that we carry on from generation to generation. It’s also a day we can make a special point to remember how being grateful for what we do have is very powerful and life affirming.
When we remember to be grateful and express gratitude in our lives, it goes right to the heart of what the Law of Attraction is about. The Law of Attraction says, that what we give, we receive back to ourselves in abundance. You might have heard that saying, “Giving, is receiving”. This is the Law of Attraction at work in our lives.
It helps us and everyone around us to express gratitude because this acknowledges to the universal higher power that we love the life that we are living. Sometimes, loving our lives can be overshadowed by the negative things that allow us to forget what is most important to us.
If you want the Law of Attraction to work for you, then start being grateful for what you do have. If you don’t have a car and have to take the bus to work, then be grateful you don’t have to pay for the gas and car insurance that you would have to spend otherwise.
Remembering to be grateful is one of the most powerful tools we have. If it were not for the Indians throwing a turkey dinner for the early settlers, they would not have been grateful; thus, Thanksgiving Day would never have been invented!
The power of gratitude lets you forgive others for what you thought they might have done to you. It also lets you forgive others for real trespasses done unto you. Holding onto old wounds does not allow them to heal.
Real gratitude is like a new lease on life, the ultimate healer. Suddenly, you find yourself happier, more alive, lighter, and not weighted down by the past or worrying about the future. People around you suddenly want what you have. Your gratitude becomes contagious, like a good virus or a good turkey dinner this Thanksgiving Day!
