Use A Gratitude Stone Before Bedtime To Cultivate More Abundance

This magic trick comes from the book, “The Magic” by Rhonda Byrne. “The Magic” is sort of like these Magic Monday emails, but in book form – it’s filled with so many magical ideas to make your life better! I particularly loved this magic trick, which Rhonda Byrne calls “Magic Rock” (also featured in “The Secret” movie). Here are the steps for the Magic Rock (or I like to call it my “Gratitude Stone”:

  1. Find a rock, stone, or crystal that fits in your hand that will represent Gratitude. Place it on your nightstand.
  2. Every night before going to sleep, hold the crystal and think of the best thing that happened to you during the day.
  3. Say, “Thank you,” for this experience.

“Be content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.” -Lao Tzu

It sounds like a silly activity, but trust me, magical things will begin happening if you do this every night. This is because when you take time in the evening to think of the best thing that happened to you, you’re also remembering so many other things throughout the day that you’re grateful for. You’ll end the night in gratitude, and you’ll also wake up with gratitude. Gratitude begets more gratitude. Plus, the more you do this, the more you’ll subconsciously create experiences to be grateful for. Gratitude begets more gratitude.

I recommend getting a special pocket notebook to be your Gratitude Journal. I remember when I was writing in my Gratitude Journal religiously and wow oh wow, I have soooo many magical memories from that time! It was proof that gratitude is the key to happiness! Whether you use a journal or a crystal, they are great reminders of how blessed we truly are.

It is not happy people who are grateful – it is grateful people who are happy.

Rather than diving deep into what my past week has been like, I’d like to just extend this topic of gratitude. I’d love to share how grateful I am for YOU. If you’re reading this, I don’t think you understand how much that means to me. I know how busy life is – to the point where even opening a little email can feel like a big task! So the fact that these Magic Monday emails make it on your to-do list – it’s a magical feeling! Please know how much you are appreciated. 💙

Sending you so much love, energy, and hope for your coming week! XOXO

With love,
