Law of Attraction Higher Vibrations: Thanksgiving-Christmas-Winter Holidays Style Gratitude All Year Long

Attraction, Gratitude, and Abundance
Many thought leaders recommend feeling gratitude to prepare for receiving increasing abundance in one's life. That is a good position.
During a pandemic with wise public health restrictions on human contact, feeling grateful may seem challenging, but it is really easy to switch your head around into blessing counting mode.
I don't know when your increased wealth is arriving, but I know that it is imminent. I am trusting the teachings from spirit-led teachers.
Winter Holiday Feeling
For me, thinking of Thanksgiving and Christmas warms my soul and heart. I have many happy childhood memories about both. I am guessing that you have a history with pleasant autumn and winter holiday memories.
Thanksgiving and Christmas include special foods and feasting – ALWAYS a positive for me because I am a Foodie. Diwali, Chanukah, Kwanzaa, and others celebrations have their associated foods for the observance. Savor your ability to eat, taste, and enjoy.
Christmas, in particular, brings beautiful music. I love the traditional Protestant carols, classical scores, and new jazz renditions. I start playing carols on the piano in July, restraining myself from starting any earlier out of a sense of consideration for others who may not be similarly enthralled.
In the non-pandemic past, Christmas performances clogged my personal schedule. For one month I played, danced, and sang. It was halfway towards living inside a Broadway musical, which will be part of what my Heaven will be. Plus, I celebrated my friends’ performances and luxuriated in hearing new arrangements of Christmas songs.
Now, in safe singing mode, I have learned to do the home recording to a tracking tape. Thankfully, many people in my circles have learned hw to do sound mixing. Perhaps I will also add this skill to my wheelhouse. Learning is good.
Giving To Neighbors
Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. of America means, for me, getting together with family and friends, eating good foods, having a holiday from work, giving to others who need assistance, and reflecting on the good things in my life. All rather great things, I believe.
Getting together is now Zooming together and more old-fashioned phone calls. We work hard at not risking others in the confidence that it's only for one year.
Thanksgiving Day, or the long 4- to 5-day weekend, does not mean shopping for gifts. It just doesn’t. Neither does it mean scheduling my life around football games on the telly (sorry, footballers, I just never got into it – thank you, Dad!) All things considered, Thanksgiving turns out to be a relaxing, enjoyable time.
The Law of Attraction Game Plan
The "Law of Attraction" is promoted in the book, The Secret, and in many contemporary thought leaders' platforms.
It basically states that we should imagine ourselves in our good space (whatever that is for each of us) and then feel it so deeply that we are overwhelmed with emotions of thankfulness. Thanking the Universe ahead of time for the abundant situation brings the abundance to us.
So what can we do to help this process?

Keep Christmas With You All Through The Year
To conjure up a higher emotional state of abundance, blessings are easy to count.
You and I can walk, talk, hear, see, eat, drink, read, write, and drive without assistance. Each year that passes makes that more important.
I have grand friends who see the real me and, despite that, still genuinely love me. I love them back, and that is a great blessing – the ability to give love.
Every year, I can identify new blessings. This might include a new mischievous cat, an expanded vegetable garden, and a slowly increasing talent on the clarinet. (I’m sure that my band director gives thanks for that!)
“Keep Christmas with you all through the year.”
This sentiment is found in a Muppet Christmas song. I like it very much. In fact, it is part of my personal credo.
The winter holidays are getting together time, and eating special foods time. As a bonus, adults frequently act a little more kindly towards each other at the winter holiday season.
The best thing if you are a musician: Christmas is rambunctious and glorious Fourth of July fireworks!!!
I also celebrate my personal spiritual meaning of Christmas. I do that every day. That is a good state of mind.
I propose that we all try keeping a Thanksgiving-Christmas state of mind longer than the actual holiday season. Both holidays compensate for the darkness – they give us something to happily anticipate as the number of hours of daylight decrease. Both give the opportunity to make special foods, lovingly crafted and delicious for all. Both call to mind blessings. It is a state of mind worth keeping all through the year.
Blessings on you.
