When the universe fulfills some of your desires, in even the smallest degree, how do you receive them? Do you disdain them? Do you wish you never wanted them? Or do you accept them with appreciation and gratitude? How you receive these gifts will determine how they continue to come into your life.
So if you want to improve your ability to manifest what you want and enjoy your manifestations even more, then receive all your experiences with appreciation and gratitude. Welcome them. Ask for more of them. Be thankful for them. And they will increase.
This works with anything you desire — food, wealth, health, sexual expression, and so on. Feel gratitude for what you do have, and you will experience increase.
As you pursue the fulfillment of your desires, you eventually satisfy some of them. At some point you get what you want. It might be just a little at first, but you do receive something. How much do you enjoy that experience? The degree to which you enjoy it won’t affect your drive to continue fulfilling your desires. Your drive will be the same either way. Your enjoyment is your reward though. So doesn’t it make sense to enjoy what you receive as much as possible? It is not the physical size of the reward that matters. It is the scope of the gratitude you bring to it.
If you want to attract more of anything, you must effectively thank the universe for whatever it sends your way, no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. To attract greater financial abundance, be thankful for every penny that comes to you even if you’re totally broke. To attract better health, be thankful for the health and vitality you’re experiencing right now even if you’re overweight and sickly. To attract better relationships, be thankful for the relationships you already have even if you spend a lot of time alone.
To be ungrateful is to assert the intention, “Don’t give me any more of this because I don’t like it.” To be grateful is to intend, “This is wonderful! Keep it coming!”
