It’s a natural law of the Universe that when you love and appreciate what you have, you’ll get more if it. It’s impossible to feel fear or lack when you are practicing gratitude.
Use these six tarot cards to practice gratitude and appreciation, and turn your tarot journal into a Gratitude Journal. In addition to writing down what these cards mean for you, include your specific thoughts about what you love in your life, and more specifically, WHY you love it.
When you journal about WHY you appreciate each item, you’ll be cementing those grateful feelings into your body so you can emotionally draw more of that goodness into your life.
LOVE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS
Lucky in love? Shower your special someone with the specific reasons you love and appreciate them. Show your gratitude daily. This isn’t just for romantic partners, either. Share your appreciation with your friends, family members, co-workers, community members, and acquaintances. The world needs more love!
LOVE YOUR GOOD LUCK
So much of what affects our life is outside of our control and can be considered luck or good fortune. What blessings have you received in your life that you didn’t have to work for? Show appreciation for your good luck and privilege by writing about them in your journal.
LOVE YOUR MONEY
The median salary worldwide is only $1,225. Per YEAR. If your family earns more than $34,000 per year, you are in the top 1% of richest people in the world. Take a minute to appreciate your wealth and all of the opportunities you have around you.
LOVE YOUR FAMILY
Whether you were blessed with a wonderful family or have created one on your own, list the specific people you value and the reasons you appreciate them. What would be missing from your life if they weren’t around?
LOVE YOUR SELF
Everything you have in your life was created by your desires. Pat yourself on the back for creating this amazing life you have! Be specific about the talents, abilities, strengths, lessons, and experiences you are grateful to have in your life.
SHARE YOUR LOVE
Once you have gained clarity about the amazing amount of things you have in your life to be grateful for, spend some time thinking about specific ways you can share that bounty with others. Spread your abundance to those around you, whether that’s sharing money, time, space, creativity, energy, or other resources.
