Vol#4 -Gratitude-LIFE series-Let’s initiate freedom effortlessly.

As per my personal experiences I truly believe and feel that the greatest energy that exists in this Universe is that of “GRATITUDE”.This has been scientifically proven by the water experiments conducted by Dr. Emoto, a Japanese scientist.
From Mr. Emoto’s work we are provided with factual evidence, that human vibrational energy, thoughts, words, ideas and music, affect the molecular structure of water, the very same water that comprises over seventy percent of a mature human body and covers the same amount of our planet.
A question was put forth to Dr.Emoto, whether he had come across a particular word or phrase in his research that he had found to be most helpful in cleaning up the natural waters of the world? Attached below are Dr.Emoto’s answers.
DR. EMOTO: Yes. There is a special combination that seems to be perfect for this, which is love plus the combination of thanks and appreciation reflected in the English word gratitude. Just one of these is not enough. Love needs to be based in gratitude, and gratitude needs to be based in love. These two words together create the most important vibration. And it is even more important that we understand the value of these words. For example, we know that water is described as H2O. If we were to look at love and gratitude as a pair, gratitude is the H and love is the O. Water is the basis that not only supports but also allows the existence of life. In my understanding of the concept of yin and yang, in the same way that there is one O and two Hs, we also need one part yang/love to two parts yin/gratitude, in order to come to a place of balance in the equation
Love is an active word and gratitude is passive. When you think of gratitude — a combination of appreciation and thankfulness — there is an apologetic quality. The Japanese word for gratitude is kan-sha, consisting of two Chinese characters: kan, which means feeling, and sha, apology. It’s coming from a reverential space, taking a step or two back. I believe that love coming from this space is optimal love, and may even lead to an end to the wars and conflicts in the world. Kan-sha is inherent in the substance H2O — an essential element for life.
From time immemorial our ancestors have been stressing the importance of gratitude.As children we learn from our parents to thank everyone. Energetically, I feel that gratitude opens a sense of inner spaciousness in both the giver and the receiver. This space allows the unfoldment of further creation and connection to stay potent and alive forever.
Just like the way “light”travels to infinity and can never be destroyed, in the same way the words of gratitude once spoken stay alive forever. Again as I have mentioned in my earlier articles first and foremost practice gratitude towards self before it is passed over to the others.
Make it a practice when you wake up in the morning to thank yourself for being here on Earth followed by thanking all your organs,bodily systems,cells for the optimal functioning today. Acknowledge, honor and thank every aspect of your day even before it has begun so as to make room for more creation and connection to occur for your highest good.Be open, surrender and trust for everything in our life happens to help us grow.
Gratitude opens the inner doors to receive the outer blessings and sunshine abundantly.It activates an inner sense of aliveness.It feeds and fills us up when we receive a thank you from someone. It makes us feel welcomed and received. It is like a boomerang that always comes back to you thousand fold once given out to anyone.
My dear friends,the secret to abundant life is being in gratitude.I am sure we all want abundance to flow to us effortlessly, right? So let’s begin offering our thanks and appreciation to everything and everyone here on Earth so that we can all be nurtured,nourished in every way forever.
TIPS TO INCORPORATING GRATITUDE IN YOUR DAILY LIVES.
1. Begin the day by thanking yourself. Thank your bodily organs, systems,cells for performing their functions healthily and optimally.
2. Follow this by thanking the day. Thank all the blessings and grace that the day is going to offer you.
3. Thank your family.
4. Thank your friends and enemies. Remember you are freeing yourself by thanking your enemies. I understand it is difficult especially thanking those that have hurt us. Since energy follows thought let’s begin the unwinding of the “stuck hurt”energy by just a thought of thank you to those who have hurt us.Be kind to yourself and do what feels right to you in the moment. Please do not push yourself in anyway.
5. Thank the plant kingdom, animal kingdom,mineral kingdom for being here.
6. Thank all the four elements —Fire, Earth, Water,Air.
7. Thank your achievements as well as your failures.
8. Thank every being on this Earth.
9. Thank the Universe for being here.
Make “Gratitude” the abundant energy that oozes out from every pore of your being. Pour it out unconditionally , turn your inner tap on and open to receive the universal blessings thousand fold into your lives.
Blessings, peace and love to all beings.A very big “THANK YOU” everyone.
