Just for today, I will be grateful

Just for today, I will be without worry
Just for today, I will be without anger
Just for today, I will be grateful
Just for today, I will be honest to myself and others
Just for today, I will show love and respect to everybody and every living thing

This is the next chapter of my little series about Mikao Usui‘s 5 Universal Principles, which we can use to accomplish a harmonous life with ourself and others. 

Showing gratitude
Showing gratitude – maybe just for one day – might turn out to be the best choise you have ever made. Start already in the morning by looking around in your bedroom. Are you grateful of your surroundings/furniture/stuff? After this, feel the gratitude towards all the wonderful human beings in your life.

Continue like this for the rest of the day showing gratitude towards everything you see or experience. And before you go to sleep at night, you show gratitude towards everything, which has happened during the day. See my previous blog: Say thank you

What happens next?
By showing gratitude towards everything and everybody in your life (even if only for one day), you will be able to experience even more to be grateful to. And that is worth craving for, right?

The Secret
On all my Reiki one courses, I tell my Reiki students about Mikao Usui and his Universal Principles of Reiki. Everytime, we talk about being grateful in advance. Mikao Usui was ahead of his time, as his philosophy is mirrored in the famous book “The Secret”. So in fact – it might work ;-).

Being grateful in advance
It might seem a little strange saying thank you for something, before (apparently) for we have received it. We are so used to (trained to) saying thank you, AFTER we have received anything. So why showing gratitude in advance? We need to do this, because there is no “time and space” in the Universe. This means that everything happens right now and right here on all levels.

If we really wish for something (with or without any substance), we need to pretend that we have already received, what we wished for. If we wish for something to happen in the future, we continue pushing the wish ahead of us – and then nothing will happen.

Try saying: “I am so grateful that I have now received ……”
Sense the feeling of having received, what you wished for
See it happen
and the magic will start.

What about you? When will you start being grateful for everything and everybody in your life?

Have a fantastic weekend – Life is waiting for you!
