Works like Magic: 18 October 2021

28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….

Week 6: Works like Magic

“If you take any activity, any art, any discipline, any skill – take it and push it as far as it will go, push it beyond where it has ever been before, push it to the wildest edges of edges, then you force it into the realm of magic.” ~ Tom Robbins

“How can it be that a person who is born into total poverty, starts out with nothing, and has very little education goes and become a president or a celebrity, or builds an empire and becomes one of the wealthiest people in the world? And how is it that two people can start out the same career, and yet one person’s career goes from success to ever greater success, while the other person works himself or herself into the ground, with little success, no matter how hard they try? The missing link to success is gratitude, because according to the law of attraction you have to be grateful for what you have to attract success to you. So without gratitude, it’s impossible to have permanent success.

To bring success or increase the good things in your job or work, like opportunities, promotions, money, brilliant ideas, inspirations and appreciation, it is essential to be grateful for your job or work. The more gratitude you have, the more you will have to be grateful for! And you should be getting the idea by now that to increase anything in your life, you have to be grateful for what you already have.

When you are grateful for your job, you will automatically give more to your work, and when you give more to your work, you will increase the money and success that is returned to you. If you are not grateful for your job, you will automatically give less. When you give less you decrease what comes back to you, and as a result, you will never be happy in your work, you will never give more than you have to, and your job or work will stagnate and eventually deteriorate, which could mean losing your job. Remember, for those who do not have gratitude, even what they have will be taken from them.”

The Magic by Rhonda Byrne

Even if you are not in your ideal work environment or you don’t have your dream job yet you must always be grateful. I know and I talk out of experience. When you are not grateful and only have negative thoughts and feelings it only gets worst. As soon as you realize how blessed you are to have a job, colleagues and equipment to do your job, you will start see the things changes around you. You will become happier.

This week while at work imagine you have a invisible Gratitude manager following you around. You must try to find as many things big or small that you are grateful for in your work. Your invisible manager will write down all the things you are grateful for as soon as you say. “I am so grateful for what

Magic Money: 11 October 2021

28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….

Week 5: Magic Money

“Gratitude is riches. Complaint is poverty.” ~ Christian Science Hymnal

“If there’s a lack of money in your life, understand that feeling worried, envious, jealous, disappointed, discouraged, doubtful, or fearful about money can never bring more money to you, because those feelings from lack of gratitude for money you have.

Complaining about money, arguing about money, getting frustrated about money, being critical of the cost of something, or making someone else feel bad about money are not acts of gratitude, and the money in your life can never improve; it will worsen.

No matter what your current situation, the very thought that you don’t have enough money is being ungrateful for the money you have. You have to get your current situation out of your mind and instead feel grateful for the money you do have, so the money in your life can magically increase!”

The Magic by Rhonda Byrne

I don’t know about you, but I find it difficult when I walk into the supermarket and see how the prices of everything have increased and my income decreased. I now realize after reading this chapter for the second time I do have to change my mindset. I am grateful for all the money I receive, and that I am able pay my bills at the end of the month. But I make this gratitude undone by, stressing over next months bills that needs to be paid. From now on I am going to try something different when I go to the supermarket. Instead of complain about the prices of the food, I am rather going to be grateful that I have money to buy what we need.

This weeks activity is all about Money. I must say I never thought about all the money I have received since I was a baby…. Okay I am not talking about money I received that reflected in my bank account or in my piggy bank. I am talking about food, drinks, a home, pets, gifts, electricity, water, sport, hobbies, doctors appointments, education, toiletries, clothes the list goes on and on.

For this weeks activity go sit down and think about everything big or small where money was paid for you, say and feel the magic words, thank you, with all your heart for each instance.

Take a 1 Dollar Bill or what ever currency you have ( I took a R20 bill) and stick a note on the bill and write in bold letters.

THANK YOU FOR ALL THE MONEY I’VE BEEN GIVEN THROUGHOUT MY LIFE!

Take the bill with you today. Take it in your hand and read the note and be truly grateful for the abundance of money you’ve been given.

After today, put your Magic Bill somewhere you will see it every day to remind you to continue to be grateful for the abundance of money you have been given in your life.

Magical Health: 4 October 2021

28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….

“He who enjoys good health is rich, though he knows it not.” ~ Italian proverb

Our health is the most precious thing in our lives, but we take it for granted. Health is a gift of life, and we receive it daily. We have to be grateful for our health, to keep on receiving it. When you are grateful for your health, you will maintain your current health. By practicing gratitude you will set the magic of health into motion and increase the flow of health to you.

“Gratitude is a vaccine, an antitoxin, and an antiseptic.” ~ John Henry Jowett

 Every morning you must say, Thank you for each part of your body and your senses.

  • “Thank you for my legs and feet.”
  • “Thank you for my arms, hands, and fingers.”
  • “Thank you for my amazing sense of taste.”
  • “Thank you for my wonderful sense of smell.”
  • “Thank you for my precious sense of touch.”
  • “Thank you for my eyes, that enable me to see everything.”
  • “Thank you for my hearing.”
  • “Thank you for my brain and my beautiful mind.”
  • “Thank you, organs, for working perfectly.”
  • “Thank you, cells, for working hard to give me a healthy body.”
  • “Thank you for my strong and healthy heart.”

On a piece of paper or a card, write in bold letters.

THE GIFT OF HEALTH IS KEEPING ME ALIVE.

Put this card in a place where you can see it. During the day at least four times, read it slowly, and be grateful; for your health.

“The greatest wealth is health” ~ Virgil

With all my heart, thank you for your continued support.

Have a Blessed day.

Magical Relationships: 27 September 2021

Good day friends,

Hope you are all still enjoying the Gratitude. Love. Positivity posts.

28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….

Week 3: Magical Relationships

“Imagine if you were the only person on Earth; you would have no desire to do anything. What would be the point in creating a painting if no one could see it? What would be the point in composing music if no one could hear it? What would be the point in inventing anything if there was no one to use it? There would be no reason to move from one place to another because wherever you were – no one would be there. There would be no pleasure or joy in your life.

It’s your contact and experiences with other people that give your life joy, meaning, and purpose. Because of that, your relationships affect your life more than anything else. To receive the life of your dreams, it’s vital that you understand how your relationships affect your life now, and how they are the most powerful channels for gratitude to start magically changing your life.

Science is now confirming the wisdom of the great sages of the past, with research studies showing that people who practice gratitude have closer relationships, are more connected to family and friends, and have other people look upon them favorably. But probably the most astounding statistic that has come out of research studies is that for every one complaint about another person, whether in thought or word , there have to be ten blessings for the relationship to flourish. Any less than ten blessings for every one complaint and the relationship will deteriorate, and, if the relationship is a marriage, it will most likely end in divorce.

Gratitude makes relationships flourish. As you increase your gratitude for any relationship, you will magically receive an abundance of happiness and good things in that relationship. And gratitude for your relationships doesn’t change only your relationship; it also changes you. No matter what your temperament is now, gratitude will give you more patience, understanding, compassion, and kindness, to the point where you won’t even recognize yourself….

…Words are very powerful, so when you complain about any person you actually harm your life. It is your life that will suffer. By the law of attraction whatever you think or say about another person, you bring to you. This is the very reason why the greatest minds and teachers of the world have told us to be grateful. They knew that for you to receive more in your life, for your life to magically increase, you have to be grateful for others just as they are. What if every person close to you said, “I love you – just the way you are,” how would you feel.”

Rhonda Byrne, The Magic

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” ~ Thornton Wilder

Choose three of your closest relationships and collect a photo of each person.
With the photo in front of you, write five things you are most grateful for about each person. You can do this in your journal, on your phone, or on your computer.
Begin each sentence with the magic words, thank you, Name, and what you are grateful for.

Do this together with all your other daily gratitude practices.

Count your Blessings: 13 September 2021

Good day friends,

For the next 28 Mondays, we will revisit our 28 Days of Practicing Gratitude. As you know by now one can never stop being Grateful, and you can never say, Thank you too much. 

28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….

Week 1: Count Your Blessings

“When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around”  ~Willie Nelson

Be grateful for what you have even if it is not a lot. If you are grateful you attract more of what you have. For example. If you are truly grateful for the money that you have, even if it is a small amount, you will see that your money will grow. But you must be very careful not to undo your gratitude by complaining about how little you have. Remove all negative thoughts from your mind. This goes for every area in your life. 

Every morning write down 10 things you are grateful for and why you are grateful for them. You can do this on your computer, your cellphone, or in your journal. Whatever suits your lifestyle.

Here is my 10 blessings for today.

  1. I am truly grateful that I woke up this morning because today is a gift for a fresh start.
  2. I am truly grateful for the rain we had yesterday because my garden needed the water.
  3. I am truly blessed to have a roof over my head because it protects me from the elements.
  4. I am truly blessed to have my dad living with me because I can spend time with him every day.
  5. I am happy and grateful to work from home because I don’t have to commute and get stuck in traffic.
  6. With all my heart, thank you for my children because they bring me so much love and joy.
  7. With all my heart, thank you for all my senses because without them I would not be able to see, hear, smell, taste, or feel.
  8. I am truly grateful that I can open the tap and have drinking water. Otherwise, I would have to buy drinking water.
  9. I am truly grateful for electricity, without it, I would not be able to put on the lights, work on my computer, charge my batteries.
  10. I am truly grateful for friends who care and support me.

You do not have to be grateful for the same things every day. I have so many things that I am grateful for but if I list all of them every day I would never get to do my work. 

As you go through your day say thank you for what you have. It is not difficult and you do not need to say it out loud. You can sit and work at your computer and say, “Thank you, for my computer”. When you brush your teeth you can say, “Thank you, for my toothbrush and toothpaste.” 

When you have time during the day read your 10 blessings for that day and say Thank you, Thank you, Thank you after each blessing.

With all my heart, thank you for your continued support.

Have a Blessed day.

Remember the Magic – 6 September 2021

Today we are reaching the end of the 28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude. I thank each and everyone who supported me throughout these 28 Weeks.

We are not stopping here. I will be reposting each weeks post on a Monday again for the next 28 Weeks. The best way to get into a habit is repetition, and we are all human and we all get distracted and go off course very easy.

28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….

Week 28: Remember The Magic

“That’s the thing with magic. You’ve got to know it’s still here, all around us, or it just stays invisible for you.” ~ Charles De Lint

Every day is unique; there is no day lake any other day. The good things that happen each day are forever different and forever changing, and so when you Remember The Magic by counting yesterday’s blessings, no matter how many times you do it, it will be different every time. It’s just one of the reasons why Remember The Magic is the most powerful ongoing practice to maintain the magic of gratitude in your life. No matter what your desires are now, or what desires you will have in the future, this magical practice will remain the most powerful practice for your entire life.

The easiest way to remember the blessings of yesterday is to start by remembering the beginning of the day when you woke up, and go back over the day in your mind, recollecting the major events of the morning, afternoon, and evening, until you reach the time when you went to bed. When you recall yesterday’s blessings it should be effortless; you are just scanning the surface of yester, and as you scan, the blessings will bubble to the surface of your mind.

You can start this magical practice by asking the Question:

What are the good things that happened yesterday?

Remember The Magic and list yesterday’s blessings on a computer, or write them out in a journal. Scan over the surface of yesterday until you feel satisfied that you’ve recalled the blessings of the day. They can be small things or big things, because it’s not about the size of the blessings; it’s about how many blessings you find, and how much gratitude you feel for each one. As you remember and notate each one, simply be grateful and say the magic words for it – THANK YOU.”

Rhonda Byrne, The Magic

Stay safe and grateful.

Have a Blessed day.

….When you are grateful to be the person in the mirror, feelings of dissatisfaction, discontentment, disappointment, or I’m-not-good-enough completely disappear. And with them, every dissatisfying, discontenting and disappointing circumstance in your life magically disappears too.

Negative feelings about yourself cause the greatest damage to your life, because they are more powerful than any feelings you have about anything or anyone else. Wherever you go and whatever you do you take those negative feelings with you in every moment, and those feelings taint everything you touch, and they act as a magnet, attracting more dissatisfaction, discontentment, and disappointment with everything you do.

When you are grateful to be you, you will only attract circumstances that make you feel even better about yourself. You have to be rich with good feelings about yourself to bring the riches of life to you. Gratitude for yourself enriches you!…

….When you’re grateful, you don’t blame yourself when you make a mistake. When you’re grateful, you don’t criticize yourself when you’re not perfect. When you’re grateful for being you, you are happy, and you will become a magnet to happy people, happy situations, and magical circumstances, which will surround you wherever you go and in whatever you do. When you can see the magic in that person in the mirror, your whole world will change!”

Rhonda Byrne, The Magic

This week’s practice is very easy and it won’t take up to much time at all. Every time you see yourself in the mirror say, “Thank you” three times and if you have the courage say three things you are grateful for about yourself.

Let’s all start to love the person in the mirror first then all the other things will fall into place…

Thank you with all my heart for stopping by. Thank you for your continued support. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow and comment.

Stay safe and grateful.

Have a Blessed day.

Transform Mistakes into Blessings – 23 August 2021

28 Weeks of practicing Gratitude….

Week 26: Magically Transform Mistakes into Blessings

“Turn your wounds into wisdom.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

We have the freedom to make our own choices, and that means we have the freedom to make mistakes. Mistakes can hurt, but if we don’t learn from the mistake we’ve made, the pain we’ve suffered from it has been for nothing. In fact, by the law of attraction. we will make the same mistake over and over again, until the consequences hurt us so much that we finally learn from it! It’s the very reason why mistakes hurt, so that we do learn from them and don’t make them repeatedly.

To first learn from a mistake, we first have to own it, and this is where many people can become undone, because they often blame someone else for their mistake….

……How do you learn from a mistake? Gratitude!

No matter how bad something may seem, there are always, always, many things to be grateful for. When you look for as many things as you can to be grateful for in a mistake, you magically transform the mistake into blessings. Mistakes attract more mistakes, and blessings attract more blessings – which would you prefer.”

Today, think about a mistake you have made in your life. It doesn’t matter whether it was a big or small mistake, but choose one that still hurts when you think about it. Maybe you lost your temper with a person close to you and the relationship hasn’t been the same since. Maybe you put blind faith in another person and got burned. Maybe you told a white lie to protect someone, and because of it you ended up in a difficult situation. You might have chosen the cheaper option on something, and it all went wrong and ended up costing you a whole lot more. You might have thought you were making the right decision about something, but it completely backfired on you.

Once you’ve chosen a mistake to magically transform into blessings, look for the things to be grateful for. To help you, there are two questions you can ask yourself:

What did I learn from the mistake?

What are the good things that came out of the mistake?

The most important things to be grateful for about every mistake are the things you learned from it. And no matter what the mistake, there are always many good things that came out of it and altered your future for the better.

Rhonda Byrne, The Magic

This week, identify the mistakes you have made and try to find one thing to be grateful for. Be grateful for what you have learned from your mistake. I know some of the mistakes I made in the past changed my life for the better. But I only realized it long after I have made the mistake.

Thank you with all my heart for stopping by. Thank you for your continued support. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow and comment.

Stay safe and grateful.

Have a Blessed day.

The Magic Wand – 16 August 2021

Week 25: Cue The Magic

“Life is playfulness… We need to play so that we can rediscover the magic all around us.” ~Flora Colao

“Imagine that the Universe is friendly and caring, and that it wants you to have everything you want in life. Because the Universe can’t just walk up and hand you what you want, it uses the law of attraction to give you signs and cues to help you receive your dreams. The Universe knows you have to feel gratitude to bring forth your dreams, so it plays its part in the game by giving you personal cues to remind you to be grateful. It uses the people, circumstances, and events that surround you in your day as your magic cues to be grateful. I works like this:

If you hear an ambulance siren, the magic cue from the Universe is to be grateful for perfect health. If you see a police car, your magic cue is to be grateful for safety and security. If you see someone reading a newspaper, it’s your magic cue to be thankful for great news…..

….There are unlimited and creative ways the Universe has to magically cue you to be grateful in your day-to-day activities. You can never misunderstand a magic cue or get a cue wrong, because whatever you think a cue is for, you’re right! The Universe uses the law of attraction to magically cue you, and so you always attract the exact cues that you need to be grateful for in that moment.”

Rhonda Byrne, The Magic

This week try to be alert to what’s around you. Try to identify at least 7 cues of gratitude from the events in your day.

Be grateful for what you have as well as what you would like in your life.

Thank you with all my heart for stopping by. Thank you for your continued support. I am truly grateful for every view, like, follow and comment.

Stay safe and grateful.

Have a Blessed day.
