Showering is something we all do, everyday, every other day etc. We usually think while we are in the shower and not always the most positive and life affirming thoughts. If you are like me the shower seems to be the time when all your fears come out or you rehash the fight you had with your lover or best friend or you think about a challenge that is coming up like a test or a job interview.
Whatever you think about in the shower, most often the thoughts are not empowering and make us feel good. If you do think of positive things, then congratulations! If you don't, this is something you should work on changing and make it a top priority!
I find the shower the "perfect time" to spend on a gratitude ritual. We tend to not spend a lot of time on gratitude. Being grateful is a great way to manifest positive things in your life and bring a peaceful feeling to your morning. You would be surprised how many things you can find to be grateful for in the shower.
Start with the fact that you have a shower to shower in, some don't. How about being grateful the water is warm. You pick up a bar of soap to wash your face, you think of how grateful you are to have the soap, the people who made the soap or the people who made the ingredients to make the soap.
The people who built the house and tiled the shower, the people who ran the plumbing, the people who made the shower door or the fixtures and drains. It might seem trivial to be grateful for these things, but it isn't. If you have ever seen a house being built you realize how many people put huge amounts of energy into building it and all the people who put energy into making all the tools, fixtures, tile, sinks etc.
Everything you pick up in the shower has many people and hard work you can be grateful for. You shampoo your hair, you can be grateful for the people who made your shampoo, the people who packaged it and the people who shipped it. How about the people who made the bottle or created the artwork.
Spending time in the shower being grateful for just the item in your shower takes a lot longer than you probably take to shower! The next day you can continue where you left off the previous day or you can think about other things you are grateful for.
Starting out your day with a gratitude ritual can start your day off on a highly positive note and keep you from thinking negative thoughts. It is also a vital part of any manifesting ritual you do.
