How Talking to Myself in the Car Left me More Grateful
If you've ever driven past me on the road - it probably looks like I'm talking to myself. I am! Luckily, I don't start until the two lane country style road on the way to my house - so I mean, you'd really have to be looking.
I discovered a practice called Gratitude Ranting from the metaphysical teachers, Abraham-Hicks. They are all about appreciating what you have in order to attract what you want.
The Law of Attraction is simple: Like attracts Like. If you are SUPER bummed you don't have what you want - you're going to attract more bummy situations.
However, if you act as if you are happy anyway, you will attract more situations to make you happy. Here's the real secret: If you are happy anyway, you don't need what you wanted. What you really wanted was to be happy! If it comes, it's an added bonus. (Namaste).

So, gratitude rants are a great way to get into the zone about what you have and how awesome your life really is.
You can also make this a prayer.
Turn down your music about 3-5 minutes before you get home and just start rambling - you may feel silly at first, especially if you aren't alone in your car.... If you don't get a lot of solo cruise time, do this at home. Driving for me is just a pattern that helps me remember to rant.
Start like this:
- I'm so grateful that....
- And, I'm so grateful that..
- It's so awesome that
- Wow, thank you for...
- Thank you for
- I'm so grateful that..
- It's so amazing that..
Keep on keeping on.
You may be surprised what you connect the dots on or how you feel when you get out of the car.
