Gratitude. It's divine alchemy.

Gregg Braden wrote that in studies, gratitude opens the DNA. Gratitude allows healing and blessings to occur.

Gratitude is the current buzzword. We hear and see so much on social media, from friends and teachers about "being in gratitude." It's the catch phrase these days. But what exactly does it mean to be grateful?

Being in gratitude for me, is stopping in that moment, taking in a deep breath and giving thanks to something in my life that I have, that I am blessed and grateful for.

It really helps to get in the habit of being grateful, especially if it’s hard for you to notice blessings, and break the habit of looking at what’s wrong in life. The good news is, it's simpler and quicker than you think.

How do you feel blessed and grateful when you don’t feel very grateful? When I feel that the divine flow of abundance and prosperity is not flowing to me, I check in with myself to see if I am in gratitude. I check in with myself to see if I am looking at what’s wrong instead of what is right.

I know that for some people, it can be hard to see the good in life when it is not going well for them, and if that is you, I ask you to be grateful for the most basic thing. Even if all you can muster is being alive. Just Start there.

For example, you are reading this. This means you have sight. Sight to take in so many things of beauty around you. Someone's smile. A bird. A tree in the wind. Give thanks to that.

You are able to access the Internet in some way. There are many who don't have that luxury because of extreme poverty or they live in a country that does not have it, or allow it. Give thanks for that.

Perhaps you don't have a computer, don't have the Internet, and are reading this from a friend's house. Give thanks for that friend.

Perhaps you don't have a computer but are at the library reading this. You were able to walk or somehow got transport to that library. Give thanks for that small blessing.

Start small if you have to, but everyday, give thanks for something. Set a timer, a little alarm, any reminder to everyday go into a moment of gratitude.

Doing so can change your life. It allows you to shift your perspective for one thing. It will immediately lift your vibratory level. It also creates this divine alchemy where all your energy systems, including meridians, chakras and your DNA opens up. It opens up to the unlimited source of love and blessings and allow it to move into you.

Think of your gratitude like a flower opening up to the sun. And that sun is the Source/Universe/God's unlimited source of abundance. You are the flower opening to receive the energy of that sun, to infuse you with what you need to grow. Like a flower, you take in what you need to be healthy and vibrant and reach a new level of being.

By going into gratitude you allow it access to permeate everything you are. In doing so, you give the Source to send more good things to you and into your life.

Would you like to shift your perspective and bring more blessings into your life? Would you like to get into the habit of gratitude?

Set a timer or a reminder to do this everyday. Pick a time convenient to you.

My Daily Gratitude Practice

• Put your hand to your heart and take in a deep breath.

• Just be in the moment of your breath moving in and out of your heart space.

• Bring to mind something in your life, you are blessed and grateful to have.The first thing that comes to mind.

• Say a silent prayer or word of thanks to Source/Universe/God for this blessing.

• Breathe in that moment of gratitude into your heart and just allow yourself to rest in it for a moment.

All healing and abundance comes from a place of gratitude.
