I am often asked, “what’s the most important thing that you practice daily?” My number one, most important practice, is gratitude. I began this practice twelve years ago. I started stating what I was grateful for each morning as I walked my dog. My initial list was pretty short in comparison to what I declare in my practice today.

What began to happen to me as my gratitude practice grew was amazing. I realized that by the time I was done with my declarations, I was bursting with joy. I could barely contain my happiness. I would find myself singing and dancing around my kitchen.

No matter how I may roll out of bed, or how busy my morning is, I always say thank you to Spirit for all my abundance. I end my day the same way. When I close my eyes to go to sleep, I thank the Universe for a minimum of three positive experiences I had that day.

I use the word practice, for when you practice something, you perform an action over and over again until you gain proficiency over the item practiced. Practicing gratitude is no different than a golfer practicing their swing, or a yogi practicing the asanas. By doing something over and over again, you gain insight, appreciation, understanding, and proficiency of the universal law of attraction. The more you acknowledge your blessings and gifts, the more blessings and gifts you’ll receive.

When you begin your path of gratitude, you will soon feel your frequency shift. Your life will reflect your plentitude back to you, bringing a more positive impact into your life. Think of it like a boomerang; the more thanks you send out into the universe, the more abundance will come back to you. In addition, you will begin to see and feel the changes that come to you, you will increase your joy, happiness, positivity, optimism, improved health, heightened brain function, and an overall enhanced view of your life. It can be an absolute game-changer for you and your life’s circumstances.

Developing your practice of gratitude is one of the easiest skills to attain. As the Nike tagline states, “Just do it!” and If you’re not sure what to be thankful for, start with the easiest items such as being happy that you have your health, a roof over your head, food to eat, etc. As you develop your routine, you will find yourself appreciating everything positive you have and experience, and what might be perceived as negative. Each experience you encounter is another stepping-stone to your growth.

How do you start your practice, you might ask? You begin by purchasing a small notebook and journaling what you’re grateful for. You can state your thanks aloud while walking or driving.  Anywhere you feel like saying thanks, you can say it, whether aloud or silently. You can stand in front of the mirror as you’re getting ready for the day and look yourself in the eye and state all you’re thankful for. There is no right or wrong way to do it.

What’s more important than how you state your gratitude is the fact that you state them.  When you do, the universe will hear you and respond accordingly. It’s okay if you’re skeptical of this exercise, for once you start to make it part of your daily routine, you’ll wonder why it took you so long to incorporate this practice into your day.

Rev Sarah Nash on Abrupt Awakenings and the God Within

Rev Sarah Nash on Abrupt Awakenings and the God Within

On This Episode

We ask the question – what is real life? What are the masks that we wear when we are online? The interfaces we are using for connection are not places that promote vulnerability and authenticity. We discuss why the spiritual path is our way out of this time of collective judgment and lack of forgiveness. We explore the power of compassion and holding sacred space for people to sit inside of themselves. When people are able to do that powerful transformations can occur.

Many people around us are experiencing abrupt awakenings. Sarah explains how and why she created Cosmic Triage as a way to deal with such spiritual emergencies. Her mantra of  Center, Ground and Protect gives people with no spiritual context for their experience, a way to find some calm amidst a challenging situation. We also explore the importance of doing inner work and recognizing our own ability to connect with the divine. We finish off our conversation talking about the White Light Express – an organization that uses focused authentic intention, meditation, and prayer for healing and transformation.
