Gratitude is one of the most powerful tools you have as a human being. It is so much more than being polite. It is a profoundly effective manifestation tool, as it provides feedback to the universe on what you wish to expand and multiply. It anchors the energy of what you prefer to experience. In fact, you could consider it to be an energetic sorting tool, as well as the steering wheel of the flow.
Gratitude also helps you connect with the Now moment. It allows you to acknowledge the magic and abundance that exists all around you, if only you have eyes to see. Gratitude allows you to see how loved and supported you are, and to expand into even more of that experience of love, because it is, in effect, sending love and appreciation back. Gratitude is how you dance and create with the unconditional love of your guides, universe and Source. It is honouring your connection as an important co-creator of it all. ~Archangel Gabriel
