How Empowering Is Gratitude?

Gratitude has the power to change the world.

There is nothing in the world quite as powerful as gratitude to build positivity.  Expressing what you are grateful for is about as pure a positive act as you can create.  Making a statement about the things you are grateful for is always a conduit of positivity.

Positivity 198 - GratitudeRecognizing the good things we have in our lives and giving thanks for them is incredibly energizing.  It can give us a sense of perspective that is surprisingly easy to forget.  But when we start to give thanks we almost always will find more and more things to be grateful for.

Gratitude can be expressed for the tangible and intangible, material and immaterial, on levels great and small and everything in between.  The act of finding things for which to be grateful can stir a lot of emotions, but these emotions will be positive ones.

It’s important to acknowledge that it’s difficult to make improvements and changes in our lives without being grateful for what we already have.  I know how hard that can be, in especial when we are fighting uphill battles, being inundated by bad news across social media, or dealing with a lot of general negativity.  Nonetheless, expressing our gratitude for the people, places, situations and things already in our lives goes a long way towards finding, acquiring and changing to new and better ones.

How does it make you feel when you hear the words “thank you?”  Doesn’t it feel good to be thanked?  When you reverse that and you are the one offering thanks, doesn’t it feel good to BE thankful?  When you don’t just go through the motions of offering gratitude but genuinely FEEL grateful, it is a powerful source of positive energy.

Gratitude empowers us.

Feeling thankful, grateful, appreciative, or whatever other emotion of gratitude we create is a boost of positivity we are putting out into the world at large.  When we express gratitude for things, we ultimately empower ourselves.  Empowerment is a positive feeling.

GratitudeEvery religion, spiritual guide, new-age or hooky-spooky guru, instructor of self-improvement, and every single concept for how to live life to its fullest employs gratitude.  All of them.  Why?  Because there is nothing as potent as expressing gratitude for generating positivity.  There is nothing like the power of expressing our thankfulness and gratitude to build positive energy and ultimately to find more good and happiness in our lives.

Gratitude for what we have generates positivity.  From there, conscious reality creation will let us manifest almost anything.

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.

Knowing that gratitude is one of the most powerful generators for positivity, we can use this power to improve our lives.  When we are grateful for what we have, tangible or intangible, we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we frequently spread that feeling to others around us; as such, we can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

How Do You Choose To Feel Today?

Do you want to feel good or bad today?  Positive or negative?  Empowered or disempowered?

How do you choose to feel?Despite the insanity of the world at large, or our jobs, or our families and friends, or any other outside influences, WE get to choose how we want to feel.  It’s our decision to feel good or bad, strong or weak, empowered or disempowered.

This feels like a lie, doesn’t it?  Welcome to Monday, the start of the work week.  Oh look at the continued insanity in Washington, DC.  What’s the deal with this unbelievable weather?  End of the month, bills are coming due…overwhelming, right?  Only if you allow it to be.

It’s all too easy to get caught up in this.  Social media is all over bad news, and not just bad news but sad, frustrating, infuriating news.  It’s almost like there is this unspoken challenge to see how angry or sad or otherwise negative they can make people feel.  History says it can go a long ways.

When we allow this to affect us, it can be really difficult to see that we are still in control.  That’s because if we are disempowered, we cede control.  When we cede control, the infamous “they” take it for themselves.

Sometimes it’s really easy to just give in.  All the negativity in media can seriously overwhelm even the most positive person.  We’re bombarded by it, and being emotional creatures, it’s hard not to have it phase us.  Yet the more we allow for the negativity to soak into our psyche, the more disempowered we become.

We can choose how to feel.

I am in no way saying that you’re never going to feel negative feelings.  One of the driving forces of our existence is using a negative thing to inspire a positive thing.  The challenge is not allowing it to overwhelm us.  We can empower ourselves to take these negative things, feel them out, then release them in some form or other.

Choose to feelI know that I sometimes lose track of how I am feeling, and allow negativity to linger.  Holding onto that is going to disempower me.  When I feel disempowered, I will succeed at finding more things to make me feel bad.  Sound familiar?

Take a deep breath.  Allow yourself to feel negativity, let it flow through you, and then LET IT GO.  Release negativity, and do what you can to bring in positivity.  In this way we can empower ourselves, and the forces that strive to disempower us lose their potency.  I know I prefer to feel good, don’t you?

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.

Knowing that we are inundated by negative, disempowering messages, we can choose how to take them in, and whether we allow them to disempower us.  When we feel the disempowering negativity, but choose to release it rather than hold onto it, ultimately we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we frequently spread that feeling to others around us; as such, we can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.

How Empowering is Humanity?

Your hate is not more powerful than our humanity.

That was the message delivered soundly in Boston this past weekend.  The protesters from the alt-right, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups were exponentially outnumbered by the counter-protesters.  People standing for unity, for equality, and peace proved they were much, much stronger than haters.

Empowering HumanityThe positivity of this act is immeasurable.  In a time when the fear in our society has been growing continuously, to witness empowerment on that scale provides tremendous hope.

The hate groups have been shown that they will not be allowed to overwhelm us by their use of fear and anger.  They have been shown that we will not sit idly by while they attempt to make us afraid, and we have empowered ourselves counter to their plans.

An object in motion stays in motion.

What has begun here cannot just be allowed to come to a halt.  This is the beginning of the movement, not the end.  This is where we begin to stand up not only to these hate groups, but to those offering them both hard and soft support.

Are you happy with the actions of our government?  Are you willing to accept the President’s constant self-aggrandizing grandstanding and unwillingness to morally lead?  Do you accept Congress’ lack of will to govern EVERYONE and not just their contributors and special interests?  If you want to see change, this is how it begins.  We need to perform more marches, we need to hold sit-ins, and we need to hold rallies.  It should occur not only to resist the haters, but to build momentum towards changing matters for the better.

Empowering HumanityThis is ultimately empowering to us all, and the positivity of that really cannot be stated enough.  We need to expand this energy, and take this empowerment further.  The people need to remind those who are “in-power” that they serve US, and not themselves.  We need to continue this momentum to truly begin to change the world for the better.

It does not matter how we identify ourselves individually – when we work together for the greater good, the empowerment we create is a force to be reckoned with.  Let’s take what has begun here and expand it out.  We can use the positivity of this united front to overcome the fear being used to keep us disempowered.  Hate is not more powerful than our humanity.

Finding positivity is not hard, but it does require action.

Knowing that when we stand up to hate we can overwhelm it with our humanity, we can build from there.  When we use this momentum to continue to build more connections between ourselves, and show haters that they will not overcome our humanity, we empower ourselves.  When we feel empowered, we often spread that feeling to others around us, and as such can build more positive feelings in the collective consciousness.  We can use the positive feelings this generates to dissolve negative feelings.  When we take away negative feelings, we open up space to let in positive feelings, and that is something we can be grateful for.  Gratitude leads to happiness.  Happiness is the ultimate positive attitude.  Positive attitude begets positive energy, and that is always a good thing.
