Energy Shifts, Enlightened Gratitude

There are plenty of pathways to happiness, but one of the surest is gratitude.

  3. More optimistic about the upcoming week
  4. Make progress toward important personal goals
  5. Have higher levels of positive states of alertness, enthusiasm, determination, attentiveness, and energy
  6. Willing to help someone with a personal problem
  7. Readily offer emotional support to another
  8. A greater sense of feeling connected to others
  9. More optimistic self-appraisal of your life
  10. Better sleep duration and sleep quality
  11. Reduced stress
  12. Better health, including reduced high blood pressure
  13. Enhanced good mood
  14. You will feel good on a regular basis

There are probably way more than 15 benefits from a gratitude practice. It only takes a few minutes a day and the power of gratitude will bring more of the things you are thankful for into your life today.

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude. Denis Waitley

  1. Thank you Adela,
    My life has changed dramatically, as we are all experiencing the Shift in our own experiences, at our perfect rhythms. Connecting with the Wholeness of Self and Tribe this past few years has brought me to a place that continues to spin faster and yet holds me in an expanded space of deep peace. I love where I AM and where WE are as Spirit. I have moved into a simply abundant way of Being and I AM ever SOOOOO Grateful!

  2. Thank you, Adela for the gratitude gift today. Afterwards I wrote: Joy flows when you embrace the ginormity of your being–where there is always more, dancing with the divine partners of freedom and delight.

    Joyous hugs,
