“Hello it’s Lori again. Today we’re talking about Step 3 and that is Feel Gratitude. Gratitude is so beautiful, and it’s the one thing that turned my life around in one hour. Why do I say that? How could that possibly be? Because before that hour, I was unaware of two things:
#1 that I didn’t have to do this all myself; that it wasn’t all on my shoulders to create my life; that I had lots and lots of help, that was from an intelligent energy that was Life; that is Life, that rules all of Life.
#2 that being thankful in advance for what was about to come was where we align ourselves with what we really want. It’s a knowingness about Life. So, gratefulness: everybody says “write down things to be grateful for”, “be grateful”; yes it is important to be grateful, but I just want to define gratefulness in a different way because you may have heard gratefulness or gratitude from your parents: “be grateful!” and you may have some anchors attached that are very negative. And so what I want to do is help you understand what it is that causes gratefulness to be such a powerful tool in SPEED Manifesting. So understanding the cosmic relationship, the relationship between us and Life itself is that it’s a one-way relationship, and that relationship is in a giving sense. And the way that we open up to receive and allow is through appreciation.
So rather than a “gratitude” think of it as fully in appreciation of everything that comes to you. Trust that the things that are happening, are happening for a reason; for you to awaken, for you to grow, for you to get the next thing, as long as you know what you want. As long as you’re clear on what you want, the things that are coming to you now, are coming to you from a conscious request to go in a particular way, and you open up and appreciate what is good. Don’t appreciate the things that are bad, but look for the seed of good in those bad things. Look for the things that are great in your life, and what you’ll find is that the bad things seem to just get smaller and smaller in your attention to paying attention to the good things; in appreciating what you do have, in appreciating what’s around you, and really getting into a feeling of appreciation.
So once I, once I actually started looking for what was great and being thankful that someone else/something else, some other divine source was going to deliver what I was asking, that it was completely the Way Life Worked, then I was able to relax into it. Within a couple of hours of having that knowledge, for instance, I found money that I needed badly that day, for buying groceries for our family. And then I got the faith from that; the seed of faith that started building and building. And now it just happens all the time when I’m clear on what I want and when I put it in my imagination, put an order in the kitchen to say “yes, here it is” and then I just know; I have this feeling of appreciation for things around me. The complaints start to disappear, and so with the complaints do the problems. Yes there are problems in life. I am not trying to gloss life over and make it candy-coated. It’s that life is real, you know? It engages us and I like that; I like life. And, the more I appreciate and pay attention to what I do love, and stop talking and paying attention to what I don’t like, the more the good stuff opens up for me. The more I almost instantly have things around me shift; have people around me change/calm down/be happier, without me insisting on them being happy so I can be happy.Right? So I get there first. And I appreciate whatever I have, and I let things go more quickly that way. I have this beautiful feeling of…even when something I don’t like, if comes in front of me my natural discipline now, my habitual way of being now is to actually look for the good in things. I have shifted my polarity. So that’s what I invite you to do, is to shift your polarity in any area where you think you have lack. Whether it’s health, whether it’s finances, whether it’s relationships, if you have an area where you really feel that it’s no good, or it couldn’t be good for anyone, just set that little voice on your shoulder. It will go off and talk but just know that that’s not who you are in this moment. In this moment you’re deciding something new. That voice is from the past. It guides you; it helps you. When you are creating something new you have to listen to the quiet voice, to the still voice and look for what to appreciate. Sometimes it’s actually appreciating your future; appreciating what’s coming, in that sense. And that’s part of having faith.
So today we’re going to open that up a little bit more by suggesting that you play a little game. Between today’s video and tomorrow, that you actually start to manifest something. You have enough information now from the first three days’ videos to start playing the manifesting game. So I want you to write down what you want to manifest. I want you to imagine it like you’re sending an order, and be so excited about receiving it; the moment of actually noticing and seeing it. We’re just going to choose something like an object. It could be a butterfly. But give it a colour; give it form and shape and put yourself in that picture. And then start to appreciate the fun that you have in that moment. Appreciate that you’re given so much. Appreciate that you’re in this moment in time given this message so that you can do something about your manifesting in all your life. So it’ll be really interesting over the next couple of days to see what happens out of that clarity for you. Put it into action. That’s what we are about with SPEED Manifesting. The information is not going to help you. It’s putting it into action in a way that is in alignment with the way the Universe works, getting into opening up the appreciation in your life.
So for today’s lesson I want you to add also to go out and speak appreciation to people. Write it down, if you need to, if somebody’s not around you. Just write down how much you absolutely appreciate your spouse, your children; whatever works for you in that way. Write down a conversation if you can’t have one with them. But speaking it is so much more powerful, and it doesn’t have to be spoken. The vibration is there. It’s coming from you. Everything you’re creating is coming from you. And getting into that appreciation no matter what; it’s a beautiful vibration. It’s one that can shift things; shift reality; but you have to actually know it and experience it for yourself. And that’s what I invite you to do today. Alright, so there you have it; Feel Gratitude.
The next step to SPEED Manifesting(TM) is “Think Deliberately.”
