How to Be More Grateful & Grateful for What You Have

When I first experienced a quantum spiritual awakening and the aftermath of it all, I had a very difficult time being grateful for anything. I couldn’t feel the energy of gratitude, which by the way calibrates really high on the Map of Consciousness® at 540. This is the level of unconditional love and inner joy.

I didn’t necessarily “feel bad” about the fact that I didn’t feel it as after years of listening to Dr. Hawkins I understood that there were blocks to my ability to feel grateful for much.

I was, however, able to love and appreciate some things.

Consciously Curated Teacher of Enlightened onsciousness Badge 300x300 (1)So listen in as Dr. Hawkins discusses his higher-level understanding of how to be grateful for what you have. I took his advice on this topic years ago and accepted how to be grateful for what I have first. I can assure you this path has been helpful in my ability to remove the blocks for how to be more grateful in my life every day.

The essential practice I used for becoming more grateful for what I have was to practice the mechanism of letting go and removing the blocks to gratitude, love, and appreciation.

How to Be Grateful for What You Have

Be Grateful for What You HaveLet’s review what Dr. Hawkins suggests in his advanced spiritual teaching for how to be grateful for what you have and be grateful for what you have become.

Acknowledge all that you’ve learned from all the effort you have put into this life to this point, and be grateful for it.

I like to write down in a journal or on a piece of paper all that I have accomplished in life and all the special moments I know I contributed to another’s well-being in a significant way.

He makes a very significant point: you build upon the past and are attracting the future.

Most of humanity’s problem is that the past is over, yet we keep dwelling on it, thereby attracting to ourselves repetitions of the past. If you love what you’ve created and want to continue repeating your success, then, by all means, continue to be grateful for what you have and what you have created.

Say yes to life!

“Yes, life, thanks for more!”

The common problem however is that we are negatively oriented s we dwell on the past. We disparage and berate ourselves for things we regret or could have done better. Or, unwittingly, we become victims of the past, our upbringing, our families, etc…and we cast blame outside of ourselves onto others or events.

This creates a problem as it blocks our intention to be more grateful in life. Again, there needs to be willingness to let go of the past, forgive yourself for lack of maturity and understanding about some things and accept tat in order for anything to change move forward in life requires present moment living and acceptance of what is, while letting go of things as they present themselves in the present moment.

Another issue for most humans is that we also dwell in the future.

The future isn’t here yet, it doesn’t exist! The only thing we have to work with is the present moment.

Be Grateful for What You Have BecomeSo how else can you be more grateful for what you have?

Let go of putting any conditions on your happiness.

In Dr. Hawkins’s spiritual teaching today, he shares Detachment VS Cravingness.

Let go of the low level of consciousness known as cravingness or desire at 125 on the Map. This lower level leads to disappointment. If you always feel disappointed, then it’s a sign you are attached or have an egoic bind to this lower level of consciousness. This particular level can easily lead to resentment, bitterness, and anger.

When you understand what letting go is all about and how it is actually done, then the blocks for being more grateful will be dissolved. And the blocks to receiving more of what you want in life, that’s much easier to be grateful for, will be removed.

Dr. Hawkins suggests choosing one thing to become detached from. He makes a good point that people always ask, “If I become detached from what I want, how will I ever get what I want to be grateful for?”

Trust me (as I have already gone through this) that when you start to let go of attachments to anything, it’s freeing, and in fact, you forget you even had the attachment.

Practice detachment and break free from the pastIt takes practice, but the higher consciousness of your intent and the practice will prevail over time.

“To be detached means, if it happens, GREAT; if it doesn’t happen, fine.”

In reality, it doesn’t matter either way, especially if you have learned how to be happy with your own existence.

If you haven’t learned how to be happy with your own existence, then the process of letting go and practicing detachment will improve your overall well-being over time.

Gratitude for what one has and what one is a great goal.

The intention to align with truth and understanding is an advanced spiritual practice and intention that you can be grateful for in general.

Remember, the past and the future do not exist. Like Eckhart Tolle likes to teach, dwell in the present moment. This is all that exists.

All calibrations are based on Dr. David R. Hawkins decades of research into consciousness, and the Map of Consciousness® that came from this research, so as to put into context where true, constructive power really exists and where it doesn’t.

The Map of Consciousness® is a logarithmic scale of 0-1,000, where 100 on the Map of Consciousness® is 10 to the 100th power, 200 is 10 to the 200th power, etc. The higher you go up on the Map, the more quantum in nature the power level comes.

The level of consciousness of gratitude and gratefulness is 540 on the Map. Don’t feel bad if you don’t know how to be more grateful for what you have yet. It takes time to unravel the blocks to it at this high level of consciousness!

Any calibration below 200 holds no truth and no power and is destructive in nature. See more about the lower levels of consciousness here.

TRUE POWER begins at 200 on the Map (10 to the 200th power) and it is the level of COURAGE. In order to turn around anything that’s negatively oriented in your life, you need to step into courage on the matter in order to do so. See more about the higher levels of consciousness here.
