“It is I, Quan Yin.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to speak with you about what it means to be grateful. The experience of gratitude is an experience that reinforces the creation of that which you are grateful for. When you take things for granted, you begin to give them less and less of your attention, until they disintegrate. But that which you are grateful for has your attention, and your appreciation of it sustains the energy that creates it.
So make it a practice of yours to be grateful for that which you already have. You don’t have to worry that giving your attention to that which you already have will somehow not result in the expansion of your experience. Quite the opposite is true. You will notice that the more gratitude you show and offer, the more of your energy you allow to flow through you.
And so, if you had plenty of money, and you showed your gratitude for the money that you have, you may actually then begin to draw in other experiences of abundance. There are many expressions of abundance, not all of which are money. So as you focus on that which you are grateful for, you are tuning yourselves to the frequency of what has your attention. And anything that is of a similar vibration will begin to appear in your experience.
So you are creating the new by focusing with the feeling of gratitude on what already is in your experience. You have so many opportunities every day to be grateful for something, to find something to focus on that you want to harmonize with. And if you make that a daily practice, I promise you there will be more in your life to be grateful for.
I am Quan Yin, and I hold you in my heart.”
