The Good Vibes of Gratitude

A state of appreciation is a good state to encompass. Here at the goodvibelife we like to live in a state of being that is indicative of empowerment. This means understanding that life is happening for you rather than happening to you and knowing this means understanding the good vibes of gratitude.

Empowerment or Victimization?

These are two very different mindsets in which a person can govern themselves from and the results of how someones life and events unfold have a good portion to do with how we perceive the world in which we live. The vibes of good thoughts are vibes that can change your life.

For a really really long time, I thought that life just happened. It was an experience that just happened to you. Good or bad, you get what you get. Work hard, stay out of trouble, do the right things, get the right education and you are golden….or are you?

This last year I unveiled many misconceptions and false beliefs that I had been ignorant of in my previous life experience. A good portion of my education came with unveiling unhealed traumas that yielded great pain and suffering, but the healing I achieved and the empowerment I gained, have proven priceless in my advancement into my awakening to the bigger picture of my role in this world.

When I shifted from “Why did this happen to me?” to “What is this meant to be teaching me?” I was tackling my experience with a newfound appreciation and sense of empowerment.

Once you start to learn about the Universe and align with its laws, you exist within it as a creator of life experience and you no longer are at the mercy of people or circumstance.

Understand your accountability in thought, action and emotion and how you direct your experience. You will come to the awareness that maintaining a state of appreciation in all circumstances will keep your vibration high and generate more and more of those experiences to be grateful for. It is Law.

Investing in your own state of optimal well-being is a pursuit I would encourage every human being to endeavour upon.

Knowledge is power. Self knowledge is Self Empowerment

Practicing gratitude and cultivating this practice consistently and authentically, can shift you towards the spaces where the good vibes frolic.

There is a Universal Law called the Law of Relativity. This law states that all things are relative. There is no good and there is no bad, mere relativity. We, the thinkers and participators of our own lives have the power of choice. Choice of thought and how to intentionally direct our minds and the labels and associations in which we frame the circumstances in which we find ourselves.

Are you a person that is in a vibe of being aggravated being stuck in traffic or more of a chill vibe and be grateful you have a stylin car to get you from point A to point B?

It’s all a matter of how we are relating to the circumstances we are creating with our thoughts and opinions.

When you live with an awareness of this law, it is easy to shift into a way of thinking that doesn’t make thanksgiving a weekend holiday that happens only once a year. It is a way of being in your life. Every day.

Showing up and deciding to look at what is there for you to be thankful for. There is always something. There is so much in this world to appreciate. One need only direct one’s attention accordingly.

The Act of Appreciation Raises your Vibe. When you Generate the Good Feels outwards with Praise or Appreciation, You Are Elevating the Energy in your Body and your Mind.

How you frame your thoughts plays a large role in how your reality unfolds.

Whether you focus your attention on worry and impending catastrophe, or gratitude, faith and abundance your outer world is a result of your thoughts, feelings and actions that you choose to participate in every single day.

A good way to practice the state of appreciation and gratitude is to just look around you in presence. To be fully present in a moment, with a person, with nature or with just yourself is a powerful place to be.

Very few people are living now. Many coming from one place and heading to the next rushing through the magic that is a pure present moment.

I find, that slowing down, being present and governing your flow with ease allows for a space in which gratitude can be practiced and cultivated.

It is actually really easy to practice gratitude and in doing so you can also level up the experience of other humans that you encounter upon your travels. It’s no accident that the word attitude and the word gratitude rhyme.

There is power in having an attitude of gratitude. It diminishes the need of oneupmanship or comparison. If everyone were to find appreciation in an object or another, rather than meet those with envy, the energy yields a very different kind of vibe.

One of upliftment and love. Those are some serious good feels.

Recognizing the good and the fortune that surrounds you, no matter how minimal or scarce you think you may have it, it is all relative. Be grateful. It is a practice that cultivates so many positive aspects of the self. Resilience, stress reduction, kindness, mental strength, self-esteem and responsibility, improved mental framing which leads to more smiles and good vibes. It costs nothing but your attention to practice gratitude.

Scientists today even claim that writing in a gratitude journal and practicing the habit of listing things, circumstances and/or people to be thankful for and doing so consistently for a period of 21 days can implement a habit that can change your life for the better. It diminishes aggression and enhances empathy. In this state of being, your daily interactions are optimal.

It really is possible to thank everyone and everything for their contribution to your life experience. The poor experiences delineate for you clearly what you would prefer, and the good experiences, well, those are a given.

Gratitude can change your life. Appreciation is a high vibe, so let the gratitude flow!

  1. Hi and what an inspiring post! Totally agree with you about how being grateful and more importantly showing gratitude to someone is great for the spirit. You can see someone appreciates you taking the time just to say thank you. It can really brighten up their and your day! Thanks, Kenny 

    1. No doubt Kenny!  Such an easy thing to do and super solid impact!  Thank you for your comment and I hope the New Year ahead is filled with nothing but good vibes for you good sir!!

  2. Hey Rebecca. Great post. Your words are truly inspirational and transformational. I love how you point out that “It really is possible to thank everyone and everything for their contribution to your life experience.” Just this one point, if adopted by even a small portion of humanity is enough to transform the vibrational frequency of humankind to a point where we can begin to live in harmony with, and appreciation for each other and all other life that we share this beautiful planet with!
    As you say, it’s up to us to remain present, in the moment, so that we can be consciously aware of the thoughts that we are having that go on to create our future lives.
    Many thanks for sharing these life-changing words and ideas 🙂

    1. Hey Andrew! A kudos to you for YOUR words of inspiration and transformation. I love how you put into words the same perception I have in the approach to bring forth in greater quantities a higher vibrational way of being for humanity. Presence really is the most beautiful practice to encompass, because there is no other moment than the now. Encompassing a vibe of gratitude and appreciation in those moments certainly is life changing. Thank you for your kind and supportive remarks and your overall open mind and heartedness dude! I am grateful to know you! Have a very Happy and Prosperous New Year ahead my friend!

  3. Great post! When things seem to be going wrong, it’s when I focus on being grateful for what I have, and the good parts of where I’ve been that makes everything okay.

    In the morning, I grab a cup of coffee, sit on the coach and remind myself why I’m grateful for my life. When I do that, it pulls out all the beautiful things that have occurred. Then I consider my future, and I become grateful for the future.

    But I always finished my session by being grateful for right now because it’s the hard work that continues to bring life for me at the moment, not matter the situation.

    Thanks again for such a fantastic post, you’re the best!

    1. Hey JB! You sound super connected to the good vibes of gratitude and it shows in the vibrance and uplifting energy of your super sweet comment. Thanks for the positive and supportive remarks! I appreciate your presence here on my site 🙂

  4. Very insightful article! It reminded me of the Tony Robbins quote “Life happens for us not to us”. I believe that all of the things we experience in life, both good and bad, can be learning experiences and help us grow as people. Unfortunately, many people don’t look at it that way and start identifying with the victim mentality as you said. It can be very hard to get out of that once you get into it. Gratitude has been a huge game changer for me. Once you just sit down and make a list of all the things you currently have to be grateful for, you realize that you really are quite lucky in most instances. It’s like our mind constantly tries to paint this illusion that we are going through negative experiences that others aren’t so it’s easy to become bitter. After a while you realize that for the most part, we all experience similar things in life in one form or another. Thanks for writing this Rebecca.

    1. Hey Dan! Tony Robbins is all kinds of inspirational and I have learned a lot about empowerment from his motivational books and seminars. I am so pleased to learn that you encompass the open mindset of growth and I agree with you about the victimization loop that some people can fall into. You hit the nail on the head that gratitude is a game changer and I am stoked that you have experienced this truth in your own life. Life is relative and making a conscious effort to practice gratitude is a very simple and effective way to harness a good vibe. I agree with you whole heartedly that we all experience the same things to a certain degree. A very supportive, insightful and all around lovely contribution! Thanks Dan and a very Happy New Year to you bud!!
