Gratitude with the Law of Attraction
If you have ever looked into the law of attraction and how to manifest things into your life, you are probably aware that gratitude is a big part of it. Gratitude can help increase your vibration and positive energy, which helps tremendously with the law of attraction along with your mood and life in general. Here are some ways you can use gratitude with your law of attraction practice.
Use Gratitude in Your Scripting
The first way to use gratitude with the law of attraction is with scripting. As you know (or maybe you don't), scripting is the process of writing what you want to manifest into your life, in present tense. You write it down as if it has already happened, focusing on how it makes you feel to increase your vibrations and your energy.
This provides the perfect opportunity to add gratitude to your scripting practice. You will write how grateful you are to the universe for bringing you what you desired as you are scripting.
Keep Thanking the Universe Every Chance You Get
This is less of writing in a journal, and more of saying it to yourself or even out loud. You are thanking the universe every time something good happened or you get a positive feeling. When you are pouring your cup of coffee, when someone does something nice for you, if the sun is shining, really any time you get a positive emotion, thank the universe for it and show gratitude.
This was especially helpful when working through the grief of losing my sister. Turning toward gratitude for the time I did have with her instead of being so overwhelmed with sorrow for the time I have lost.
Outwardly Show Appreciation in Your Life
In addition to thanking the universe, you can also increase your vibrations by thanking other people. Show appreciation for people when they do something nice, when you feel gratitude for their friendship, after a social gathering. Keep showing your gratitude in an outwardly way, whether it is giving an extra tip to the delivery person, or just telling someone you really enjoyed your time together when you went to lunch.
This may come naturally to you, but in the event that it doesn't (like me) I have made it a habit of following up a great conversation or visit with a simple text message of how much I enjoy my time with that person.
Keep Feeling Grateful for Every Blessing
When you start showing gratitude in this way, it will become automatic and natural. It becomes a habit where every time you feel that spark of joy or appreciation, you say gratitude to yourself, out loud, or you write it down in your gratitude journal. This can never be done too much; the more you do it, the more positive you feel, which further helps you to raise your vibrations and help the universe guide you to exactly what you want to attract.
The same is true when you are working through a challenging time in your life. Whether it's normal holiday stress or grieving a loved one or failed marriage. By reprogramming your thoughts toward gratitude - you will quickly see some relieve in the burden of negative thoughts and be on your way to recovery.

Gratitude was one of the first practices that I personally put into place when I made the choice to work on my own mindset. I was sick of letting my anxiety and depression take over. I wanted to be happy. I wanted to feel like I was present and enjoying my life, instead of being a passenger on a really crappy ride that I didn't even want to be on.
I attribute the practice of gratitude whole-heartedly to the ability to work through the grief process of unexpectedly losing my sister. With some hard work prior to losing her, I have been able to replace the feelings of sadness and anger about losing her with gratitude for the time we did have together (even it it's not an immediate switch, it happens eventually and doesn't let the grief take over).
