Why is gratitude the key to abundance?  Because gratitude is abundance.  We are grateful because we have everything we need to be happy and fulfilled.

Think of the Universe as a giant machine, like the holodeck on Star Trek.  We will experience what we program into it.  We program it with what we think, say and believe. We are programming our experiences through our beliefs.

If we want to ascertain what our beliefs are, all we have to do is look at our lives.  When we embody gratitude, it signals to the Universe that we have abundance.  That programming allows more abundance to flow into our lives.

Gratitude cannot be faked.  We cannot say, "all I have to do to have what I want is to act grateful." It is the wanting that is keeping us from the having.  When we are grateful, we want for nothing.

We can begin to embody gratitude by embracing the little things (which are actually the most important things).  We can enjoy and appreciate things like walking in nature, holding hands, the pleasures of sex, looking at the sunset, brunch with an old friend, dancing, or the simple act of breathing.  The more that we appreciate the things in our lives which we enjoy, the more amazing things we will attract.

Let's be grateful.
