What is a Gratitude Stone?

As I have written in my previous post, I am reading The Magic by Rhonda Byrne – it’s giving me many ideas for how to stay in a state of gratitude.

One of the recommendations is to use a gratitude stone, also called a Magic Rock.

How do you find your special Gratitude Stone?

You can look for your stone at a place you are fond of – maybe a special park, a trail you like, or even in your own back yard. Basically, just look for a stone that looks good and feels good to you. I told my daughter to go outside and find a special rock for me. She came back with an almost perfectly round, small speckled rock. She told me how she carefully picked it out for me. So my gratitude stone is special because my daughter hand picked it for me.

How do you use your Gratitude Stone?

I am using it as it is recommended in The Magic – basically, I hold it in my hand at night, right before bed. As I hold it, I think of all the things that happened that day that I am thankful for. I must pick one thing that happened during that day that made me the happiest – that I am the most grateful for. It can be something small or something big.

When you do this, you are forming a habit of showing gratitude instead of feeling ungrateful. Instead of thinking about how this or that went wrong or all of the things that are wrong in your life, you are forming the habit of thinking peaceful and happy thoughts!

The Law of Attraction and the Gratitude Stone

The Law of Attraction basically means that like attracts like. So if you are constantly thinking negative thoughts in life, then you will naturally attract more negative into your life. Oftentimes, we find ourselves thinking too many negative thoughts. You may think that you are not good enough or that you will never be happy again – these types of thoughts will just manifest more of those negative thoughts and situations.

The Gratitude Stone is a physical action step that you can take to form more positive thought patterns. Make it a bedtime ritual – before you go to sleep, hold the stone in your hand and think of what made you the happiest that day. Repeat this every single night and you’ll start to feel more thankful and have a more positive outlook on life.

Interesting. Reminds me of a prayer rock (only those hurt your head when you lay down on your pillow ;))
Something I’ve done recently is keep a gratitude journal. I’m not perfect, but the goal is to write in it every day about something I am grateful for. As I review past entries I am reminded of how much I have.

Yes, a gratitude journal is a good idea. I’ve never heard of a prayer rock :) It’s amazing how making the point to focus on what we do have changes our sense of well-being. Thanks for your comment, Peter.
