Much like consciousness, gratitude has many unique levels. Essentially, gratitude is the best gift to give in addition to receive. Gratitude has to be heart-felt and sincere.  Show gratitude all the time and your focus is going to be on the beneficial and your attention is going to be placed on what you would like. There are an assortment of approaches to practice gratitude. 

Through keeping a gratitude journal, you’re probably going to grow your gratitude and through this, you will likely grow a number of other Christian qualities too. Then create a daily custom of gratitude, morning or night, run through the particular things you’ve got gratitude for. Expressing gratitude is proven to give people a large emotional liftGratitude is a great medicine. Although it is something which everyone can experience, some men and women appear to truly feel grateful more often than others. Expressing gratitude is an essential aspect that could reshape and transform any negative life situation into the success that you want.

At best, you will experience gratitude via the little number of methods by which you can delight in spending your free time when not on somebody else’s watch. Loosely defined, gratitude is the sensation of appreciation and thankfulness for all of the blessings and acts of kindness that you have gotten in your life. Gratitude gets us through the difficult stuff. It is among the simplest and most powerful strategies to transform your life. Gratitude and resentment or anger can’t reside in the same region at the very same moment.

Eat in Gratitude,  as the direction through which  you eat your food could be equally as vital as the sort of food which you eat. Gratitude is the ideal attitude. Employing gratitude to modify your attitude is such a very simple and rather effective jewel for self discovery.Seems somewhat trivial, but gratitude may change your life. Gratitude is an excellent motivator when you will need cooperation. Gratitude is actually a grace when you think about how it is able to make you feel. Gratitude is also an answer to the present. Gratitude isn’t a one-time event but instead a mindset which requires cultivation. Gratitude is a timeless instance of the concept that what you concentrate on, expands. Gratitude isn’t just the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all of the others.

When you’re in a state of gratitude,  you’re engaging in among the greatest vibrations one can experience. The condition of gratitude is a great thing for your well-being. You enter a place of gratitude for what you currently have. Taking a while to sit quietly and think about something you’re grateful for will help lower the negative ideas and feelings and replace them with positive ones. It also  helps you recover from trauma.  Gratitude was proven to play a major part overcoming trauma.


Happiness is easy. If you are quite grateful, life will change a good deal. There are those people  in your life, and there’s beauty on the planet. Expressing Gratitude is the key to Success. If you need to be effective in life, begin being grateful and thankful for all of the things you have. Give thanks for the many blessings you presently have in your life, and they’re going to increase. If you’re able to truly have a look at your life and everything in it and be grateful, you’re a great deal more likely to be content, and to bring in more of the exact same to yourself later on.

Not only is it a gift from God, it’s a present from God that you don’t even deserve. Truly happy individuals recognize that everything they have is not just a gift they don’t deserve, but that it’s a present to be used for God’s glory. One of the best gifts of gratitude is it is not possible to feel both positive and negative emotions at the very same moment. A disposition of gratitude is important for all of us to develop too. An attitude of gratitude can be rather infectious! You may use the attitude of gratitude to obtain more of the excellent things in life. 


The fantastic spiritual traditions all teach the worth of gratitude. You can begin your gratitude meditation practice by first choosing the right place that does not have any distractions. Practicing gratitude meditation on a normal basis is the best method to move towards happiness. So, when you say your gratitude prayer, think what you can do in order to give back, today. You could decide to say a very long gratitude prayer daily, listing the things for which you’re grateful. If you concentrate on what you do have, you are going to be astonished at the blessings that enter your life.

Keys to expanding Universal consciousness

The path of true wisdom isn’t necessarily to quit your work, leave your house, and travel throughout the country. The key to an enlightened life is purely by raising your consciousness. A variety of fascinating things can be achieved by raising the consciousness. Karmic problems can block soul consciousness. Meditation, being among the best methods to the get to the higher plains is the best means to clear karmic problems. Indeed, there are not any answers outside our very own physical and spiritual bodies. The world affects you, but you need no true capacity to impact the world.

The universal consciousness isnt an individual entity but a connection or influence. It becomes quite weak when we live a selfish and purely physical life. Kabbalah provides the methodology to come up with the sixth sense that could perceive the spiritual. Thus, the technique of Kabbalah utilizes and accepts all the facets of an individual, and just develops one’s awareness and application of those. The manifestation procedure includes the actions involved with bringing about a condition. It’s analogous to the Chinese idea of Yin, which together with Yang are deemed to be the basis of all Creation.

 Eastern philosophies such as Buddhism and practices including Tai Chi, Yoga and other types include ways of exploring the mind. In Zen, it’s known as the pathless path. In other words, it isn’t something to be achieved, but it’s to be realized and lived. Hebrew letters play a major function in the ancient Jewish mystical system named Kabbalah, which employs the Tree of Life as its principal symbol. In the Tree of Life structure, you can discover strategies to go back to the divine spirit whilst still living in this material world.

Kabbalah bracelets may also be chosen for their particular spiritual content or distinctive intent. Amulets can also help boost the stream of energy towards a specific portion of life such as bring the wearer good fortune or reduce health difficulties. While Human history can at times seem endlessly repetitive, the story doesn’t end there. Until you acknowledge, accept and appreciate where you’re in your life at this time, you won’t truly be capable of moving on.

True wisdom is to modify your life from where you manifest through the ability of imagination. Our minds files all our experiences in a kind of subliminal database which is frequently the source for a sixth sense’ feeling everything. Nothing is enough in regards to desire, so you must learn to curb it. Comparable to The Wizard of Oz, it frequently feels like we’re on our very own golden path. 

Understanding the laws of the universe

The laws are the underpinnings of contemporary metaphysics and set a path to illumination. The hermetic principles are an excellent idea for a practitioner to learn as a way to understand the method by which the universe works as a whole. The theories regarding physics are verified and confirmed by the most recent discoveries of contemporary science, especially in what is known as the composition of matter. New science is presently indicating how it’s possible through the comprehension of quantum physics. Some contemporary scientists have suggested that the universe is a type of hologram, meaning that every part is the perfect reflection of the whole.

The universe did not supply you with the ability to manifest what you would like simply to take it off you again. What it gives you is the power to redeem your situation. Therefore, if you hurt others since you felt hurt, don’t anticipate the universe to reward you expect instead the identical thing you delivered to is returned. Take your time to completely understand what’s being said and incorporate it in your life. Attune to the vibration of what you would like in your life and it’ll manifest. 

The key to realize is that most of which you experience in life is a result of the choices you make. If you believe your life is full of sadness, misery, and you’re always the victim in every scenario, then that’s what you are given. You reside in the world youre thinking of.  Our material world and that which we see is only one aspect. You understand that everything in the whole physical world can be observed from an endless number of unique points of view.

Nobody escapes anything, though it may appear like some individuals are, in truth, they’re not. Matter is simply densified spirit. At the opposite end of the scale, there’s matter that has the lowest vibration and might appear to be at rest too. The mind is a strong tool, however we need to begin living more from our heartspace. The mind and the spirit have the maximum vibration. If you send out positive thoughts, you are certain to acquire favorable outcomes. Embodying love can make all of the difference in how folks respond to you.

After you get started working with the Law at a higher degree, you’re begin living life for a game, and have mastery over your material plane. Hermetic Laws support the thought that there’s a universal collective consciousness. Really, it ought to be named Law of potential because it’s describing the possible infinite area of the mind. There are a few universal laws that may be found across space and time, they’re a component of the way the Universe works.

Once more, the Universal Laws come into play to support your pick. They do not need to be known to exercise their authority.  There are several universal laws that regulate the mechanics of reality.

Why money isn’t everything, but power is

If I tell you money is overrated, I’m sure you’ll look at me like I’ve lost my mind. But from looking at how the world worked and still works, you will understand what I mean. If the people in power who mint and create money suddenly decide to stop, what will happen? Will the rich still be rich? That was why in the past, the truly wealthy had their wealth measured by gold.

The Gold standard was key because it was considered one of the most valuable assets. It was even more important because it was rare and was of a limited supply. The ground has to be dug to search for gold. These reason made it a mark of wealth. The same goes for silver and the not so respected bronze. Diamonds were a sign of wealth too (basically most natural resources), but gold, silver and bronze were key trading (buying and selling) materials.

In some places, cowries were used by the masses to buy and sell. Cowries were also natural to the earth, but they were not precious enough to make one rich. And of course the famous trade by barter. By observing trade by barter, you’ll see how money just acts as an exchange of value. The ancient ones gave something they had for what they wanted. For example, someone who wanted to buy a small/ medium plot of land would negotiate with the seller on what was needed in exchange. This kind of big transaction was mainly done by the rich and the exchange was likely gold or silver. But a lower value person who lacked gold might suggest given 5 rolls of cotton and 100 potatoes. If the buyer and the seller agree on this value of exchange, the sale is made. But this was stressful many times, as the seller might not want what the buyer has. This lead to the buyer doing barters with other people to get what the seller values.

So basically money is an affirmation of someone’s value. What does this person have that can make me have what I want? But money is a controlled supplied entity, unlike gold. And even the latest buzz in the financial field, Bitcoin (and other crypto currency) is still a controlled supplied entity. Though Bitcoin might have a fixed number in existence and cannot increase, it still isn’t gold. The nature of the coins are just like Fiat money – Absolutely changeable and unstable. It can crash and increase depending on how the strings are pulled.

Now to the other part of the title “…, but power is”. Defining power in the first place is a complex subject. It has so many definitions and sometimes blended in with authority. At the end of the day, power is simply the ability to control. Whatever controls someone has power over the person. Let’s say I have a boss, he tells me when to go and when to come. He has power over me. If I’m susceptible to being controlled by my emotions, it has power over me.

Are all powers bad? No. And vice versa for the opposite question. The people who created the system of money have the power. The people who created the system of crypto currency have the power. Well, God created Gold and we all know of His power. Take note that I am not condemning money ( As me and money attract and like each other), but rather the thinking of forgetting that the world is ruled by power.

No, the world is not ruled by money like you’ve been made to think. Because if money is a show of inherent value, obviously those who have power will have it. It’s like a bird having feathers. That’s easy, because all you need to do is be a bird, feathers are part of the bundle. There can be a country today that solely decides not to have a currency and it can be a wealthy nation. It’s just that the powers that be will not like it and try to suppress them. Why does the world all follow the US dollars? Even when pounds and Euros have an higher value. Power. That’s to show you how people follow power first.

Actually when people say that they need money, they mean something else. Most times, it’s many other things. They might mean that they want to enjoy the luxury of wealth. Or they want to have new clothes, visit another country, build a house, buy books, etc. Money is just a synonym of ” Enough value to have what I want”. What about credit cards? Those pieces of cards that lets you get stuff free that you have to pay for later. That is still perceived value. That money does not currently exist for you, but you are allowed to buy while your value decreases. You have to pay back, or you get into debt as a valueless person.

So, value is synonymous to power as money is synonymous to wealth. The unwise chase money as a means to no end and do not get much of it. While those who understand the concept and creation of money, get as much of it as they want. This is because they strive for power, as much as they want to acquire. Then money cannot control them, but works for them. And if money turns to rubbish today, it will not affect their wealth.

5 things to do before you die

Although death is a scary topic, we all know that it does come someday. And living brilliantly before our time runs out should be everyone’s goal. With that said, here are the 5 things you should do before you die.

  1. Travel: Don’t just live your life stuck in the same state, the same town, in the same country. Move (That’s why you have legs) and see the wonderful world! It’s one thing to travel and prefer the comfort of home and it’s another to never know anywhere but home. That’s why many of our ancestors were nomads. Human beings are naturally curious creatures, so do not go again your nature by staying put forever.
  2. Eat a lot of yummy food: Life is too short to forever count calories and stay on diets. Make sure you have fun eating yum foods. Also, food from diverse cultures is a plus. Do not restrict yourself if you are not allergic to it. Give me that damn gluten now!
  3. Be kind: Don’t spend life focused only on yourself. Be kind to others and make sure you do good deeds. Not only will you be happier, your existence will have more meaning. Our life is meant to help someone else out there. Let’s live with that consciousness to always do kind things.
  4. Play in nature: What’s more fun than having fun in nature? Enjoy the bare mud touching your feet. Eat fruits directly from the trees. Meditate in nature and feel like you’re some kind of guru. Yeah, just enjoy nature like people did in the past. Do not live your existence looked up in an office and wearing work shoes. Life is not about that.
  5. Do some art (or science): Where I am going with this is similar to discover your talent. It’s also closer to creating something with your own hands. It may be something practical like craft or fantastical like a poetry collection. Just do it, even if you don’t want to sell it to anyone. It can be your personal keep sake. Or it can become a family heirloom after you are gone. If you want to give it off as a gift, that’s good too. Why do this? Because it involves practically transforming your human talent into the physical. And what’s more humany than something created from an idea?

How to feel alive when going through depression

It’s not easy and it seems that no one notices or cares.

But what we feel as I have come to realize many times have nothing to do with the reality. Depression is undescribable. And to lay men and people that have never experienced depression that compare it to sadness… Well, they are very ignorant. To care for ones self is important when depression hits, because frankly the battle is only felt by you. Now, how to feel alive in the midst of turmoil:

  • Choose self love first: Embracing yourself no matter how you feel about your self currently. Think of yourself as a farmland that grows and changes with time. Know that you are not fixed and anything can change. It’s easy for voices of discouragement to come, but remember that they are all lies. And the best part is that this is applicable to anyone, so that voice will not be able to tell you different.
  • Be greatful: I myself has seen the effects of gratitude in my life (and also the lack of it). Once we express gratitude for all we have (even when it feels like we have nothing at all), we do our soul a big favour. It’s not just God that will like it, as it has far more benefits for your emotions and positivity. Be grateful for you merely existing if you feel like there is nothing to be greatful for.
  • Do not try to shut up the judgemental voices: I will say that it’s best to not try to fight a battle in your head. You can casually refuse all the lies that depression feeds you, but going back and forth with the voices do not help. Let things flow, as hard as that may sound. Soon you’ll find out that you don’t need to fight it.
  • Go out, do stuff: Feel the air, even if it hurts. Go outside and play even if you don’t feel like it. The same goes for anxiety. Meet with friends and interact. Do not lock yourself inside because of fear. Though you may want to go slowly, make some steps.
  • Quit stuff: Do not be afraid to quit some habits or activities. If hanging out with a group is making you worse, stop doing it. Say no to what you don’t want. This is a time to take control of your life. Also, now the true friends and the snakes will come into light. Be strong in your own decisions for how to make your life feel better.
  • Get help, accept care: Do not hesitate to get help. Feel free to reach out to people you know or don’t know that can help. There are many organizations, sites and groups that help with depression. All you have to do is reach out to find them. Let yourself be cared for, this does not make you weak. You do not have to go through it alone. Remember you have always have a choice.
  • Take medication confidently: If it requires medication given to you by the doctor, take it. Do not be ashamed to take drugs to help your mental well-being till you get better. Remember that it’s not only physical pain that needs treatment.
  • Think of the people you love: You will not want them to be hurting if you take a rash action. know how your pain feels and I know that that is not how you wish anyone to feel. Choose life by remembering the people you will not want to leave behind.

Finally, know that love is still abundant in this cold world.

And for those who have someone who you think might be going through depression.

‘Why didn‘t she tell us she was depressed?”

She did. She told you when she started hiding in her room. She told you when ‘the cat’ suddenly started scratching her more than usual. She told you when she said she wasn’t hungry and began pinning the clothes you just bought her.

She told you when she stopped doing her school work and cried when you called her lazy. She told you when she locked her bedroom door at night. She told you when you noticed alcohol missing and she started waking up with headaches. She told you when she spent an hour in the shower and came out with putty eyes.

She told you. The thing about depression is that it’s quiet. It isn‘t loud. and the reason

you didn’t hear it was because you weren’t really listening.

Now is the time to take action.

Why you should not have a new year’s resolution

I remember those days when I was younger, before every new year I will think about resolutions to make. Sometimes I would have lists, though this lists most times did not make it into February. Then I reached a point where I stopped having them. A simple realization hit me, new year resolutions are just wishful thinking. Many people think that the start of a new year gives then superhuman strength to perform deeds to drastically change their lives. They believe that creating new year ‘goals’ mean something.

But that is not how life works. A new year is just like another new day. Vowing to do something just because it’s the beginning to of the new year means nothing – Nada, Ziltch. So, rather than have a ‘new year resolution’ have a lifetime resolution. This type of resolution will be practiced, remembered and renewed in your daily life. And most importantly this resolution must be followed with action. Without consistent action, all goals are just wishes.

4 words you should never use

According to the laws of attraction and the well known power of the tongue, we now know that our words mold our life. Whatever we say manifests itself in someway or another. Knowing this, it is best that we choose our words right in order to live a right life.

These words should be removed from your vocabulary today:

  1. Can’t: This word signifies disbelief and lack of fate. When you say that you can’t do something, it is an agreement of failure. Doing something which you have not done before might be hard, that does not make it impossible. Saying that you can’t will most likely make things more difficult for you. Instead of using this word use the word “can. Embrace the possibilities of existence.
  2. Not : It is a known fact that the brain doesn’t recognize ‘not’. In fact, it doesn’t take note of a negated word. If you say, “I will not get sick”, your brain is interpreting it as “I will get sick”. This being the case, you have to use positive statements to describe yourself. For example “I will stay healthy” is a better option.
  3. Wish: Except when you are writing a poem, you should not be wishing about anything. Wish is a word of nonchalant powerlessness. This word distracts from action. It is admitting to not having power over your life and not wanting to do anything about it. Wishing puts you in the state of lack and you are left in a fantasy hope. Instead the word “will” can be used. ‘I will get that house’ not ‘ ‘I wish I could get that house’
  4. Need: This word creates situations of material poverty and intellectual poverty. To need means not having. To declare that one need something means one believes in scarcity of that thing. This negates the law that everything in this world is more than enough to go round. Therefore this keeps people from getting what they should have. The word “have” should be used.

Superficiality? Why do Christians dress so well to go to church?

Have you noticed this trend in churches? The pastor usually wears a suit and the congregation are well dressed. If you ask anyone of them, they will say that they just want to look their best in the house of the lord. But why must people look good to go to church? The church has become a social gathering for many, making a casual outfit almost look out of place. It’s like it’s sinful to dress down when you go to church.

I see people looking like they are going for a party when they go to church. Such superficiality blurs the reason for going to church in the first place. However, I am not in support of the extreme notion some dominations take that is the opposite of this. Dressing down, not wearing jewellery and appearing peasant- like because you are going to church is also superficial. 

It seems to me that the church is lost between two extremes. One group which considers the church as a social outing and the other who use to church to show how holier than thou they are.

Solution for the show offs :Smaller churches in which there is a smaller need to be extravagant
Solution for the holier than thous: Bigger churches in which they will feel the need to appear more presentable.

The balance is in the moderation
