Gratitude is the key that opens the door to spiritual growth and prosperity. Material growth is always relative (there is always someone better or worse off than yourself) and even if you have material growth there is no guarantee of any inner pay-off. Spiritual growth conversely, is directly proportional to inner wealth and prosperity. Say thank you to God, to your guides, to your friends, to the Earth for every gift and blessing that they bestow upon you. This appreciative approach to life constantly brings a sense of abundance, raises your frequency and grows your soul. This attitude will also help to attract positive people and circumstances to your life .
