Your state of mind has a vital impact on the flow and interpretation of your life experiences. As spiritual practice, gratitude has a two-pronged effect: it declares to the Universe your willingness to be responsible for your own joy and it raises your vibration to a higher level of consciousness.
The tendency of many is to wake thinking about all that needs to be accomplished, watch the news (which feeds ego-generated fear or judgment) or rush to be somewhere on time. If the day begins chaotically, it can be challenging to find a state of balance when you need it most. When you choose to provide yourself with a few minutes of quiet and focus on gratitude and joy first thing upon awakening, you create a peaceful yet empowered momentum that opens the realm of infinite possibility.
Nothing is more important than your state of consciousness in the present moment. Your thoughts determine the flow of your life.
Today my intention is to be willing to accept a miracle.
