New Month, New You – How Gratitude Keeps The Blessings Rolling In

I cannot count the times I have been sitting and fretting about the future. It is something natural for us humans to do. When we don’t know where we stand on something, especially related to things like will “we be able to eat” or “will we have a place to stay,” it’s hard to calm down. I’m not going to pretend. Faith has been one of the biggest obstacles for me over the years. Especially when everything us in society indicates that we can control our outcomes. Not having the tools to “control our outcomes” can lead you to despondency and disbelief. So, what can you do to combat sleepless nights and constant worry? Something as simple as gratitude can start to change your circumstances almost instantly.

What Does “Having Gratitude Mean?”

You may hear people say “be grateful” all the time. And in your mind, you probably think you are a grateful person. This advice is not meant to be a comparison in moral fortitude over who is grateful to the universe or not. Instead, this advice is meant to take your mind off of your immediate circumstances and realize that there is nothing humanly possible you can do at the moment. And instead of worrying yourself to death about the issue, just accept what is without fighting and replace that worry with being thankful for everything you have and will get. As you think of all the things to be grateful for, you will stop worrying about the thing you lack and start to shift your reality to get what you want. Stop staring at bills, stop tormenting yourself with emails or text messages, and stop listening to threatening voicemails. Turn away from all that triggers you to fear and doubt and trust that all will be well, and start thinking of all that you are grateful for.

How You Can Start Having Gratitude Right Now

You may be thinking, “this sounds so hokey.” But what’s better, continuing to dwell on the problem, making it bigger, and giving it the power to manifest? Or doing the hokey thing that can shift your energy? I’m not even kidding you. There have been times in my life when I should have dropped off the face of the earth because my problems were so monumental. But using this faith technique works! Not sure why it works, it just does. So, what are some specific ways you can practice gratitude and shift your circumstances right now?

Cut off the Naysayers and Eliminate Negativity

The last thing you need right now is someone in your ear telling you that you might as well give up and that it’s the end for you. Is that really someone you should trust or listen to? You may even want to evaluate being friends or close associates with such a person in the future, even if the person is family. Also, try not to feed your mind with negative stuff. This means don’t listen to sad music or watch violent television shows that inundate your mind with anger, violence, or sadness. All your emotions need to be moving upward at this point.

Be Thankful For All the Money You Have

Another thing you should do is be thankful for all the money you have. No, I don’t mean go and stare at your empty bank account. This could trigger you to be despondent once again. Instead, look at all your clothes, car, and the food in your fridge, and be thankful for those things. You got all those things with money. Know that you will have money again to purchase more things soon. If you’re terrified of your bank account right now because of a layoff or something else terrible, remain thankful. Find past things to be thankful for if you can’t muster the strength to be thankful for what’s currently in front of you. Stay in that state of happiness no matter how reality tries to make you start worrying or doubting again.

Be Delusional AF By Acting As If

Last, and most importantly, be delusional! Do you remember when you were a child, and you used to play games of pretend? Believe it or not, you will have to rely on those childhood techniques now to bring you through the storm. This is what Neville Goddard terms “Acting as If.” You’re literally going to have to start acting like the person that has already received what you want.

For instance, if you were hired for a new job, would you still be waiting for a recruiter to call? No, you would be confident that you’ve completed the interview, received a great offer, and will be starting soon. If you were in a loving relationship with someone, would you desperately chase the man or woman of your dreams? No, you would rest assured that you have a loving partner and are doing wonderful things together.

Finally, if you had money or were wealthy, would you be worried about bills? No, you would rest assured that the bills will be paid promptly.

Why These Techniques Are Necessary

So being delusional is about getting in the feeling of where you want to be, not continuing to worry about where you are based on what the 3D world is showing you. Be like a kid and pretend even though your adult mind is tormenting you with “no, it’s not so!” Being thankful and delusional has a powerful way of strengthening faith and bringing out the outcome you prefer to happen. Even if your preferred outcome doesn’t happen, the universe may allow a better solution to appear in your life.

Yes, there will continue to be moments when you’ll want to give up. However, just bring yourself back to your delusional state of pretending to be the person who already has what you want. And don’t forget to continue to be thankful. Over the next few hours and over the next few days, you will start to feel a shift. This is when “miracles” start to happen.

Try doing this for a month and come back and share your experiences. By then, I will have another mystical technique for success in the next post for New Month, New You.
