“Holistic gratitude” is independent of situations and circumstances.  It is a feeling of gratitude for life itself, for existence, for anything and everything you experience. But rather than being a temporary emotion that requires constant focus, “Holistic gratitude” is more of an underlying attitude.  With practice it becomes part of your identity.

“Holistic gratitude” is being grateful for:

  • your life
  • the universeintentions
  • time and space
  • your problems, challenges, and hardships
  • your foibles and mistakes
  • your consciousness
  • your ego
  • people who treat you unkindly or unfairly
  • your thoughts and emotions
  • your freedom of choice
  • ideas and concepts

“How wonderful it is to exist!” Circumstances are irrelevant because this form of gratitude is a choice that needs no justification.  It is a sense of utter fascination with the very notion of existence.

You become grateful for the adventure that is life, including all of its twists and turns.  This form of gratitude is synonymous with unconditional love because there is no attachment to circumstances or outcomes.  Consequently, there is no fear of loss or change.

“Holistic gratitude” is like having a constant echo in the back of your consciousness saying, “Wow!” “Wow!” “Wow!” Everything else is experienced on top of that Wow.  Gratitude becomes the canvas upon which your life is painted.

If you can remain in that state of wonder, you’re likely to experience to simply BE GRATEFUL.  When you feel grateful for existence itself, you move from doing grateful to being grateful.  You finally activate the Law of Attraction because you’re broadcasting gratitude all the time.  It becomes part of your identity.  Ultimately you attract circumstances that resonate with who you are.

Just say, “I am grateful.”

“I am thankful.”
