Hi! Welcome to the member video called “Making Miracles with Thank You!” We’ve all heard that gratitude is a really important thing for us to cultivate in our lives. We can practice gratitude by opening our eyes to the current blessings we have. That’s important because we often become distracted by what we don’t have, or we think about what we’re missing. And we forget to realize that are already surrounded by blessing. So that’s a really powerful way to practice gratitude.
Manifesting with Gratitude
But there’s another way to practice gratitude, and that is employing it as an energy in the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction teaches us that whatever we hold in our imagination, whatever visions we have, have to come to fruition and manifest on the physical plane. So using gratitude in the Law of Attraction would be already being thankful for the thing that’s in my brain, that is coming in the physical world. I’m thankful for what is coming.
Another way of thinking of that is faith. Faith is the belief in things not yet seen. The Law of Attraction tells us that if we hold something in our imagination it has to come true in the physical world.
Vision + Momentum = Manifestation
The challenge though is not only creating the vision but holding it, creating the momentum that powers the manifestation. To me that’s always been a challenge – not the vision, but the momentum to make the vision manifest the whole way. But a few years ago I was given a tool that really helped me crystallize what I wanted and create the momentum to make it happen. The practice is what I’m going to share with you now. It is a thank you letter to your soul – or the Universe or God or Source, or whatever you see as the source of miracles.
Write Your Miracle Letter!
The way you start is you imagine yourself a month from now and think about what you want to have achieved in a month’s time. What do you want to have created in a month’s time? Then you write a letter post-dated a month from now as though that’s already happened. You write a letter to your source for miracles thanking your source for all of these things that have happened in a month’s time.
Spend a lot of time detailing it out. For example, if you want a new car, you might say, “Thank you so much for this amazing new car! I just feel so safe inside of it. It feels really luxurious. It’s so much fun to drive now.” You go into details – what you love about this car and how it makes you feel in the world. Write all this down in the letter. And you do that for whatever else you want to manifest.
Now you’ve got this very clear vision of what you want to happen, and the gratitude that it’s already happened because you’re imagining yourself a month from now. You’ve got this wonderful vision, but now you have to apply the momentum. Every morning and night, you read the letter. You get right back into that feeling and experience of the miracle that’s happened, and how delighted and happy you are. Let it wash over you. Every time you do that you’re adding more “gas” to the process of creation. Then in a month’s time you see where you are. It’s a really simple process, and really a lot of fun. It can be really light-hearted and joyful to do.
Watch Out for Longing!
Two things that I want to warn you about, because they were problems for me. One is you might discover as you spend some time reading the letter that you start sliding out of desire and into longing. I mentioned before that desire is an experience of creation and abundance, and longing is an experience of scarcity and suffering. When you’re longing for something you’re experiencing your distance from it. If you discover reading this letter over and over again that you might start feeling, “Oh, I would be so nice if this was true..” (if this was true!)
You want to back up for awhile, because you just slid out of desire into longing. I had to do that a few times. I had to back up and say, “I’m not feeling happy about this. I’m feeling sad about this!” Just back off to maybe only reading it one time a day, or whenever you can really get that feeling in tact.
Finding Your Power Can Be Intimidating!
The second warning is a little funny. I noticed the first time I did this practice that within the first couple of weeks there was a lot of shifting happening. A lot of things were coming together that were matching what I had written about. And it freaked me out a little! I guess I didn’t really believe altogether that I had the power to make things happen. I got a little panicky and stopped reading the letter.
I just want to say that if you find that happens for you, to go easy on yourself. This is outside what most of us have experienced on a conscious level. It is a bit surprising and maybe even a little scary to think we have this kind of power. So if you discover it’s moving too fast – it’s working too well – just stop.
Back off and stop. Let it calm back down. Give yourself a chance to adjust. And then come back at it the next month, with whatever you want to achieve that month. We all need to step into this in the way we can. You don’t want to push yourself so fast that you create some real resistance.
So just go with the flow! See what feels right for you, and definitely trust your instincts on this one. Another thing that can be helpful sometimes is, not only writing the letter out yourself, but you can share it. If you want to share your manifesting letter, you can do it right here on this site. That adds more momentum because now we’re supporting you in that. Or you can send it to me personally if it’s something that you’d rather not put on a public space. I would love to hear how this works for you. It’s been a really fun tool for me, and I’d love to hear what it does for you! So stay in touch. Bye!
