Greetings Beloved Ones,
WE ARE Archangels Zadkiel and Lady Amethyst, and we greet you with Love. Today we wish to discuss gratitude as being part of manifestation.
Gratitude is a concept that is generally recognized as part of a spiritual path.
Letting others know that you appreciate how they have helped you is something that is taught to children at an early age. For many years, you may have recognized expressing gratitude as a social grace that is part of polite society.
However, expressing gratitude has an energy of its own. It serves as part of the manifestation process as well as helping you to progress to higher dimensional levels.
Gratitude for receiving something or completing a project is often one of the last steps in the manifestation process. You may express gratitude to those who have helped you with the various steps of the manifestation, and you may extend this to the Beings of Light in the Higher Realms who are always there to assist you when you ask for their help. Expressing gratitude completes the circle of manifestation.
A project usually begins with an idea. This is molded into a concept and expressed as an intention. You have a picture in your mind of what the completed project will be, whether this is a physical project or a state of being you want to achieve.
The next step is to develop a plan to accomplish your goal. You may have a detailed plan at the outset, or you may opt for a more generalized approach and fill in the specific details as you go along. At each step of the way, you can call on the Higher Beings for assistance.
Taking action is the next step. No project will automatically manifest without action. For example, if you have a goal to live a more peaceful life, you may decide to add additional meditation time to your day. Wishing this could occur does not replace actually meditating. Similarly, building a physical project will not occur without putting the pieces together.
After you have decided on your goal, set a clear intention, developed a plan, and taken action steps, your project is completed or your new state of being is in place. You probably feel elated at this point.
However, adding the step of expressing gratitude can yield even greater results for you on your spiritual path.
Expressing gratitude shows that you recognize that many factors were at work during the manifestation process. Perhaps you had assistance from others who actually helped you during the process. They may have provided physical labor or donated supplies, or they may have taken on other responsibilities to allow you to devote more time to your project.
You may have also asked the Beings in the Higher Realms to assist you. They may have arranged for you to meet someone who helped you, or they may have come to you during meditation to give you insights about how to manifest your goal even more easily.
When you express gratitude, an energetic exchange takes place. The mere act of expressing gratitude shows that you are aware that many factors, both seen and unseen, were at work in the manifestation. This sets up a connection in the mind that completes an energetic loop between the first idea and the last action step. If the manifestation process is considered to be a circle, gratitude completes it and closes the loop.
Expressing gratitude also carries a high energetic frequency and prepares you for your next step of progression on your ascension path. The circle that is completed with gratitude can actually be compared to rising higher on a spiral. Although you have completed the process, you rise higher on the spiral of ascension when you express gratitude, thereby increasing your vibration.
Then, because you are vibrating at a higher frequency, you attract even greater possibilities to you for the next step on your path.
Expressing gratitude is a culminating step in the manifestation process and sets the stage for your new creation for highest good.
Beloved, we are happy that you recognize the interconnectness of all of Creation when you express gratitude. We enjoy working with you when you call on us for assistance in developing your creative experiences.
Know that you are greatly loved.
WE ARE Archangels Zadkiel and Lady Amethyst
…and WE surround you with Love.
And so it is.
