Gratitude Practice Ideas: Gratitude and Law of Attraction
The reason people start a gratitude practice is because it puts you in the frequency of gratitude. When you are in the frequency of gratitude, you create experiences, thoughts, and ideas that align with that frequency. That’s why gratitude and manifestation is always tied together. The more you’re in gratitude, the more you will manifest the things that you want into your life.
So! How do we do that? Let’s talk about a few Gratitude Practice Ideas to help you stay in this frequency more often.
Gratitude Practice Ideas: Manifesting Through Writing
I personally love to write, hence, why I am writing this blog. It is my happy place and I feel like I can get out my true feelings through writing, unlike through speaking. So of course I love the idea of writing in a gratitude journal.
For those of you who don’t necessarily love to write, I do want to point out the benefits of writing in your gratitude journal. You might know that our thoughts are predominantly subconscious. In fact, 95% of our thoughts and behaviors are automated from our subconscious minds. This means that by just “thinking you’re grateful” isn’t going to put you in the frequency of gratitude.
That’s why I strongly encourage you to write it down. Below I’ve included three different Gratitude Practice Ideas that involve writing it down.
Gratitude and Manifestation Journal: Free Printable Gratitude Worksheet
I write in my gratitude journal *almost* every week day. I say almost because I’m human, and I have a four-year-old. (i.e. shit happens). But for the most part, I’m consistent in writing in my gratitude journal because I’ve made it a habit. You might know that I have a free Daily Gratitude Printable Worksheet that you can print out and start your daily gratitude practice right away. Alternatively, of course, you can always use a gratitude journal that you find on Amazon. I love everything Happy Planners, so I have included some below.
Best Gratitude Journal App
For those of you who are less apt to write in a journal or with a pen, an app might be more your style. I personally don’t love the idea of an app. That’s because I get sucked into other things on my phone (i.e. social media, or catching up on emails.) However, if an app is your go-to, then here are a few gratitude journal apps you might like
- Morning! A 5 Minute Journal App: Use Morning! – A 5 Minute Journal to conveniently practice gratitude from your phone. Answer the daily questions, set reminders, and read your past entries. Turning gratitude into a habit has never been easier! (I like the sound of that).
- Gratitude: Diary, Vision Board: Write unlimited Journal entries and Positive Affirmations, set reminders, and customize your colors for personalization.
- Five Minutes of Gratitude: A daily gratitude journal that is simple and completely customizable. Whether you like to journal with the keyboard or in your own handwriting, this app lets you do both!
Write in a Gratitude Calendar or a Gratitude Bullet Journal
For those of you who don’t love the idea of writing, can you come up with 1-2 things that you are grateful for in each and every day? If so, then a Gratitude Calendar or Gratitude Bullet Journal is highly recommended. Just get a calendar and instead of writing down your appointments, at the end of each day, write down one to two things you’re grateful for. Not only is it easy, it’s also fun to get crafty with cute bullet journaling pens and make it colorful and beautiful!

Gratitude Practice Ideas: Being Intentionally Grateful
After taking Jim Fortin’s Transformational Coaching Program he introduced me to his brother in law, a Shaman. I was lucky enough to get in touch with him when my mom was diagnosed with late stage cancer. He worked with her during her battle, which I am so grateful for. During that time I was lucky enough to listen in on a phone with him and my mom. He pointed out how we need to be more intentionally grateful. For example, how often do you look up into the sky and recognize that those clouds will never be the same clouds you see again. That we should be intentionally grateful for them each time we look up.
In order to be more intentionally grateful, he suggested a type of ritual. With water! Yes, ordinary plane water. Being that it’s a novelty in parts of the world, he suggested we start with that. Every time you come into contact with water, be grateful. This includes brushing your teeth, showering, drinking, a car wash, washing your face, and on and on. You start to recognize how lucky you are. Especially compared to others who are not so fortunate. Whenever I am having a horrible day, I start thinking about…if you can believe it….water. It helps me get back into the frequency of gratitude.
