Thanksgiving and gratitude go hand in hand. We should always give thanks for what we have, no matter how little or how much. Gratitude for what you have is one way of receiving even more in your life.
Thanksgiving will be here in a few days. What does Thanksgiving mean to you? Usually, it means getting together with family and friends and eating till we pop. We all know the traditional meaning of Thanksgiving, in 1621, Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast. In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving Day to be held each November.
I was brought up ‘old school’ where I was taught to say please, thank you, and yes, sir. My father was in the military for 30 years. Discipline then would be close to child abuse today. The point is that I was always taught to say thank you. To be sincerely thankful, you will feel thankful in your heart. Words alone will not get you anywhere.
If you receive a cup of tea from your neighbor, a bottle of wine brought to your Thanksgiving feast, $5 from the lottery, an unexpected refund, give thanks!
Make everyday Thanksgiving by being grateful for everything you receive from a small amount to an extravagant gift. I listened to John Vincent’s The Science of Getting Rich audio book. John is a hypnotist and has recorded Wallace Wattles classic book that he wrote over a hundred years ago. Click here for free audio book, The Science of Getting Rich.
In The Science of Getting Rich, it explains to fix your mind on Supreme (God/Universe) for gratitude, keeps…God and you…in close harmony. The supply is limitless. To dwell on inferior things is to become inferior. To fixate on the best is to become the best. This is also known as Law of Attraction, to manifest your desires through thought.
I wish everyone a blessed Thanksgiving, sharing love, friends, family, and good food! What are you thankful for? You can give thanks anytime, anywhere, God is always listening. You don’t need special words to talk to God, talk to ‘him’ like you would anyone else. Just speak from your heart.
