Researchers in the new Science of Happiness have found that happy people notice and are grateful for the “little things.”
Most of us experience so much prosperity, we may not stop to think how lucky we are to have food and water. Yet much of the world population does not have this wondrous blessing. What would it be like, not to have easy access to fresh water? Or not to be able to run to the store and choose from hundreds of options?
Our abundance in this area is a huge blessing, but often overlooked.
Today focus on gratitude for all food and water you consume. You can say a prayer of gratitude each time before eating and drinking, put a blessing on the food and water or even imagine sprinkling “magic dust” over it as a way of giving it added healing for you.
Here are today’s activities:
1. Write 10 things you are grateful for.
2. Each time you are about to eat or drink something today, stop and first say, “Thank you!” You might also say a prayer, send Reiki to the food and/or imagine sprinkling “magic dust” .
3. If you have the book, read the inspiration for Day 8. Posted on Empowering Your Life
4. Before bed, hold your magic rock and say thanks for the best thing that happened today.
At the end of the day come back here and share how it felt to send gratitude before every bite and every sip.
