(By Aine Belton)
Certain states of consciousness hold a resonance field that accelerates the manifestation of your desires.
Gratitude is certainly one of them!
Gratitude is a generating energy that will serve to attract more of anything you feel grateful for into your life.
In that sense it is a powerful abundance ally!
Gratitude aligns you to, and subsequently attracts, that which is for your highest good, and opens you to more of the love, joy, gifts and blessings the universe wishes to bestow.
Along with appreciation, gratitude opens your heart, raises your energy, and elevates you from even the darkest of states.
In feeling grateful for something or someone, you essentially 'receive' it, as well as give to it from your heart, which effectively aligns your vibration to it, and directs your focus, attention and energy towards it, attuning your heart and mind to that which is positive.
Whatever you focus on grows, so when you appreciate someone, see their value and beauty and feel grateful for it, those qualities will expand and grow in your life.
When you focus on everything in your life you have to feel grateful for, and all the wonderful things, experiences and people you appreciate, the universe hands you more of the same!
It's a wonderful abundance expanding experience!
Gratitude is the sweet song of appreciation. It turns an experience, person or event into a gift that is received, for when you appreciate and feel grateful, you literally let the experience/quality in, and you also give to it. It is a wonderful exchange of positive energies.
When you feel grateful you experience more of your love, which enhances your state in a beautiful magical way.
You also get to experience all the beautiful qualities of that which you feel grateful for all over again! "Gratitude is a powerful tool. If you will allow yourself to feel grateful, your processing and programming can work immeasurably better... As you feel grateful for what you have, you start having more things about which to feel that gratitude."
Keep a gratitude journal and write down at the end of each day 10 things you feel grateful for over the last 24 hours to assist you in experiencing more of this wondrous, generative, heart-opening energy.
When you do so, be sure to connect to the heart-felt feelings of gratitude, i.e. don't just make it a mental box-ticking process - really engage your emotions.
Add to that list a few things you are grateful to YOURSELF for, positive qualities, actions, traits and demeanours, how you've handled your day or any situations, how you've taken care of yourself or been kind to others, etc.
And lastly, be grateful to the FUTURE you're creating. You are a powerful manifesting being and when you begin to feel grateful for the dreams you are creating and person you are becoming, you begin to attract them more powerfully into your life, for you give the message to your subconscious mind they have already manifested.

Hi! I'm Aine! (That's 'Onya'- an Irish name!)
My 20 year journey into the realms of intuition has led to remarkable
rewards in all areas of my life; success, abundance, excellent health,
right-livelihood, the most amazing connections, opportunities, people,
magic moments and experiences, as well as profound states of being,
divine inspiration, vision, confidence and an oasis of love (and so much
more I wish I could squeeze into this sentence!!).
As importantly, my intuition has helped me to navigate obstacles, transform problems and challenges, and find the gifts in crises. It has offered the invaluable solutions of soul-level insight and the enhanced acuity of my inner senses with which to powerfully craft my world from the inside out.
