So, yesterday we started this experiment to help us see exactly how the act of expressing gratitude attracts health, wealth, abundance and all that good jazz in into our lives. We know it works because we have been rather BLISSED throughout our relationship. We express gratitude, love and high vibes and we are constantly rewarded. But, is there any way to prove this to the skeptic side of us? There are of course, some things we desire right now that would make our lives and business run much smoother. We think. That means we have something measurable.
Each day the Dougs and I will share our gratitude journal with you. And, we’ll let you know the results we see from that expression too. Dougie just jumped on board last night, so we’re excited to have the whole family doing this.
We’re not just Journaling gratitude though. We’re focussing on living on that vibration or higher. We’re allowing worried or fearful thoughts to drift as we notice them. We’re spending extra time on meditation and self-care because it feels good and adds to our gratitude. And, we’re doing what we can to transfer that vibration to you. We’re not simply being grateful because we want things. We’re focusing on the gratitude we already have to see what effects it has on our lives.
We’ll focus on the positive results we’ve seen, but if anything crazy or seemingly negative comes up — we’ll tell you about that too. Tomorrow you’ll get to see our vision board, so that hopefully we can all have a better view of what we would like to accomplish.

COOKING meat (Today our imaginative son made “salami” and pickles out of a cucumber. So, when I asked him what “meat” he cooked, he was like… “you know, that salami I made.”)
After spending a morning in gratitude, doing yoga and just loving each other– we went out and had a very productive work-day, talked to lots of new people en espanol and got many smiles.
Overall, there was a newness to the happy feeling we all had. We felt lighter and freer. We put out the intention to attract more money and financial stability, and there were moments during the day where we felt ourselves being detached from the power of money. No money came, but instead a feeling of freedom from it started to creep in. We had a fabulous day. We walked across the Jalisco, MX state line, and enjoyed banana trees, hiding kittens and simply being together.
Then, as we rounded our corner to enter our apartment last night, a neighborhood drug addict began screaming in our faces. That was a bit silly, and I became sad for him. But, we found ourselves able to send him love and not be as negatively affected by it as we may have been a few years ago. We were able to witness what happened and take a lesson without being emotionally tied to it. That was cool.
We’re already feeling calmer and more satisfied. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
Join us in sharing your gratitude, won’t you?
Gina, Doug and Dougie
