Gratitude is an emotion that has been widely studied in the field of positive psychology. It is the feeling of appreciation and thankfulness towards people, situations, or things. When we experience gratitude, we acknowledge the good things in our lives and focus on what we have rather than what we lack. Gratitude has numerous benefits, including increased happiness, improved relationships, enhanced well-being, and better physical health.
Having gratitude, states Mr. Steve, is the foundation that one can build upon to work and grow in such areas as self-esteem, self-confidence, joy, happiness, success and positivity in taking action to make one=s life work better and with love and joy.

Mr. Steve supports these practices and suggests clients use them daily so that the understanding and feeling of gratitude becomes almost second nature. Mr. Steve defines it as a Adefault@ that one falls back into each time an event poses itself for one=s reaction.
Focus on the Present Moment. Be in the ANOW@ more
One way to cultivate gratitude into your daily life more is to focus on the present moment and become mindful of the good things that are happening around you. This could be as simple as enjoying a morning cup of coffee or appreciating your garden as take your daily walk.
Keep a Gratitude Journal
Mr. Steve recommends a very reliable way to cultivate gratitude is by keeping a gratitude journal. A gratitude journal is a notebook where you write down the things you are grateful for every day. You may not be a Ajournaling type of person@, but even writing down just words or events or people can be useful.
If you want a more formal daily routine, then writing down five things you are thankful for each day before going to bed. These items can be repeated over a series of nights, even as you alternate with new ones. Research has shown that people who keep a gratitude journal for as little as one month experience significant improvements in well-being and happiness.
A major part of understanding what Mr. Steve promotes and assists in unlocking for each client in his sessions at unlockingyourmagicalsense.com is
the practice of being present and fully engaged in the current moment. Being in the NOW puts you in a position of being fully present and in that very moment the exciting connection of your spiritual, physical and mental states right in front of you. This is the strong building block of finding and unlocking your MAGICAL SENSE. This distinctive method is offered through sessions available through unlockingyourmagicalsense.com
In addition to the above, when we are mindful, we are more aware of the goods things in our lives and can experience gratitude more easily.
One way to practice mindfulness is to focus on your senses. Take a moment to notice what our can see, smell, taste, and touch. AND IN ADDITION, MR. STEVE WILL ESTABLISH WITH EACH CLIENT DURING A SESSION THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL MAGICAL SENSE, all of which assist you in becoming more in the NOW and feeling more grateful for the moment.
Practice Random Acts of Kindness
Practicing random acts more often is a very effective way to cultivate gratitude. When you do something nice or unexpected for someone else (family member or friend or co-worker, or even a stranger), you will feel good about yourself and are definitely more likely to feel gratitude for your own life. Mr. Steve can discuss in detail examples of this, ranging from small acts to understand how to feel comfortable in actually starting to do it, to larger acts that can express other aspects of your life (self-esteem, self-love, confidence, joy).
Mr. Steves favorite way to cultivate feelings of gratitude
Expressing gratitude to others is a very effective way to cultivate feelings of gratitude. Mr. Steve suggests you take the time to thank those who have made a positive impact on your life, whether it be through a simple text or e-mail, or for a more dynamic impact, through a person-to-person heartfelt conversation.
HOW DO WE SUSTAIN BEING GRATEFUL?
While cultivating and understanding how to become more grateful on a daily basis, it can become a powerful tool for enhancing one=s well-being and promoting positive emotions, like joy, happiness, success, self-love, confidence.
Sustaining gratitude on a daily basis can be challenging with all the non-stop input we all encounter from so many sources. However, with practice and dedication, it is possible to maintain a sense of gratitude over the long term. The following are some strategies Mr. Steve and other in this field recommend for sustaining gratitude on a daily basis:
Make it a Habit
Cultivating gratitude is like any other habit. It takes time and practice to develop. To make it a habit, try to incorporate gratitude into your daily routine. This could be as simple as taking a few minutes each day to reflect on what you are grateful for or expressing gratitude to someone in your life. The more you recognize gratefulness in your day to day lives, the more it becomes second nature to you.
Surround Yourself with Positive Influences
A very practical and rewarding way to more sustain feelings of gratefulness. is to surround yourself with positive influences. Seek out relationships with people who uplift and inspire you, and avoid those who bring your down. Sometimes it can be a hard choice to make changes in relationship that are negative, but it is vital to your metaphysical and spiritual growth. Additionally, surrounding yourself with positive messages and imagery can be of great benefit in promoting a more positive outlook on life. Working in session(s) with Mr. Steve can open more doors and visions (i.e., unlocking your Magical Sense) in creating a life of joy, happiness and living in a magical world rather than always living life by avoiding obstacles !
Self-care and Healthy Decisions
Taking care of yourself is essential for cultivating and sustaining gratitude. Also, in the understanding and practice of living in the present moment (IN THE NOW), you need to prioritize activities that promote your well-being, such as exercise, meditation, and maybe even spending more time in nature. Also, a very powerful action that can be taken is to take time to reflect on your accomplishments and to celebrate your successes. You will automatically feel more grateful in your daily life. Mr. Steve, through his sessions with clients, reinforces these positive celebrations of oneself, so that they too can become second nature to you.
Holding onto grudges can be toxic and prevent us from experiencing feelings of gratitude and experience life at its best. It is very hard to sustain being grateful daily in life if you harbor thoughts of anger, frustration and negativity towards another. Practice forgiveness towards those who have wronged you and focus more intently on the positive aspects of your life instead. This Ataking action@ is a process that can be discussed and identified within each session as discussions occur in the sessions with Mr. Steve. In other words, all aspects of your positive growth in life can be evaluated and worked on. It is all a part of unlocking you Magical Sense and seeing your life change.

Understanding and Embracing Change
Change is not an easy action to understand, do, or even live with. But change can be so enlightening and beneficial in the growth of one spiritually and mentally in the better understanding of taking control of one=s life.
Change is a natural part of life, and learning to embrace it can also help sustain feelings of gratitude. Rather than focusing on what you may be losing, try to focus on the opportunities that CHANGE can bring and the metaphysical lessons you can learn from it.
One can appreciate that being more grateful in your daily life can be so beneficial in your growth and promote feelings of self-confidence, increased self-love, self-esteem, happiness and joy. The practice of GRATEFULNESS, as Mr. Steve suggests, holds an integral part of the process of how to live a life of MAGICAL WONDERS with joy and complete involvement in your life, as you are in the present moment and realizing all the wonders of BEING IN THE NOW.
All of this and more is available for discussion, practical questions answered and options revealed on life=s adventures, working out setbacks, and a more positive outlook and plan of action to take in life. BOOK A SESSION WITH MR. STEVE AT UNLOCKINGYOURMAGICALSENSE.COM
