See what I discovered and invented !!!
About 7 years ago, I started research into positive thinking. My goal was to find a more effect way of praying other than using mere words. I read many books and finally chanced on The Secret.
I came to understand what gratitude is and its effect when you apply it. I started using a gratitude journal but stopped. Why? I forgot to write or felt lazy to write many times. And so I went back to my research what I discovered is just another secret.
The brain does not process data in words they are meaningless to the inner brain, unless they are converted into still images or video pictures. There is a “circuit” in the brain that performs this function, but a good idea is to bypass it.
And so in January 2011 I created A GRATITUDE ALBUM. A picture is more than a thousand words. I bought a camera phone and during the day I intentionally look-out for, and photograph 5 to 8 things that I am grateful for. It could be anything, a flower, a gift, my feet, the cover of The Secret book, a plane taking off, my little daughter, my wife’s wedding ring, myself, my desk, the moon, anything that is in connection with my goals (wealth, house, children, Toyota Corolla etc). Then I print it and put it into my “Gratitude Album”. It’s the same as writing but this time you are using the brain’s language and before I sleep I look at each picture I have taken, smile, and thank the Universe. Sometimes I go to Google Image search to copy and print images that are related to my goals.
The result? After 30 days I became highly positive and very optimistic. Some of my goals manifested in amazing ways. It works…. A Gratitude Album. Try it too. I created a Gratitude Video with the images too. Oh!!! Its amazing.
