Healing Extensions of Loving Gratitude

What does it mean to choose gratitude? I used to think living in gratitude meant I would feel good all the time, just flowing in abundance with all my thankfulness. But life has many ups and downs, and emotions are an inevitable part of the human experience. Gratitude does not allows produce immediate feel-good feelings. Yet gratitude does hold immense power of higher vibrational frequencies ~ what we tend to label as "positivity" or "good vibes." Gratitude, similar to love, holds a healing energy within its existence. So, even when we don't FEEL thankful, expressing gratitude or choosing to focus on what we're fateful for, can plant healing seeds of higher vibrational frequencies that feed our healing path with deepened love. Meditating on what there is to be thankful for as a continual practice can bring internal healing and more peacefilled, patient presence with the external unfoldings of our life experience. Moments of feeling thankful also feed these healing energies within our consciousness. Feeding gratitude can actually grow subconscious neuropathways within our human brain that allow for a transformation of perspective: the brain tends to focus on what's going wrong, which causes us pain, anxiety, and depression. When we choose to invest on a new focus, our experience can feel a teeny tiny bit more beautiful, one energetic piece at a time. Gratitude consciously redirects our unconscious focus. Gratitude lovingly feeds internal healing energies. Gratitude provides an alternate perspective, shifting our attention to something beautiful rather than allowing for the natural worry-pain-focused tendencies of perception. Gratitude can help us heal our subconscious parts, too, as we provide presence that feeds healing-potentials. We can even express gratitude for our body that can plant healing seeds within our unconscious states. Unconditional gratitude is even more powerful than conditional gratitude: when we are thankful for something that is substantial, rather than temporary, the energetic-healing-seeds are more powerful, and can grow and blossom into even bigger beauties within the garden of our minds and lives.
