Gratitude is a simple way to end your day and start your day in a positive frame of mind. Every day we should find 10 new things that we are grateful for in our lives. This can be a combination of a million things like people, experiences, tastes, nature, health, the sun, the moon and the stars, literally anything.
Gratitude also heightens our awareness of what is most important to us. You might be grateful for material things, but it also might make you aware of those material things which you no longer use or care about, which in turn, is taking up space and energy. It might be time for a clear out of "stuff".
Mind training is harder as we have to stop and think about how often we are negative about ourselves and others, but to make the effort to change the record playing in our heads. We are learning to train ourselves to think more positively. It is a simple, stop, think, react in a better way. Sometimes it takes great patience and time to do that. All the great spiritual teachers of the world tell us the same thing.
Use You Tube to find videos on positive thinking. We will be doing more recording ourselves before the end of summer this year. Be on the look out.
