Following Dr.Usui’s Reiki percept, let us all start incorporating gratitude in our daily life. Count your blessings daily instead of complaining.
Earlier I wrote about Angel Jar, the concept I derived from angel card “God Box”. I derived the concept of “Gratitude Jar” from one of my previous article Angel Jar. I made my Gratitude Jar couple of months back. I showed the pic of my jar to my family and friends, everyone loved the concept as well as my jar. I did not write about it earlier as I wanted to experience the magic of gratitude jar before writing about it.
Most of you must have practiced Rhonda Brynes book ”The Magic”. You must have noticed how practicing gratitude plays vital role in manifestation. You must have observed the changes in your perspective towards everything that was taken for granted earlier. With Gratitude Jar, you are incorporating gratitude in your daily life, writing about all the good things happened during the day.
Trust me, once you start practicing gratitude daily in your life, you start appreciating and valuing people, things and circumstances around you. You will be happier, joyful and more loving towards self as well as others. The happiness starts radiating from within you. It can also brighten the day of the people you are appreciating and thanking. Being grateful is not just saying thank you politely and mechanically.
Gratefulness comes from within your heart.
Time flies and we tend to forget over the period of time all the small-small good things that made us happy. Imagine opening your Gratitude Jar after a year and recollecting all the beautiful memories of past days and showing gratitude again for those sweet moments.
Following ‘Just for today, I will be grateful’, let us make this Gratitude Jar in which we list and thank all the good things that happened throughout the day.
Making a Gratitude Jar – Take any jar or box. Decorate it the way you want to. That’s it. Your Gratitude Jar is ready.
Putting Gratitude slips in the jar – Everyday before sleep, make a ‘thank you’ list of everything good that happened throughout the day. If you are thanking a person, you can use distant symbol to connect to the person. Start like :I am grateful to ____________ for ________ or I am thankful for ___________ or I am blessed to have ____________. Do not forget to put dates.
Give Reiki to your Gratitude Jar with the intention to give you more chances to show gratitude. You are already half-way towards your happiness as soon as you decide to make this Gratitude jar.
