I came across a text that explained this in such clarity I had to copy.
This is what vibes are all about!!
"To create more of what we want, we must for be grateful for all that we already have.
Our perceptions have the power to change everything.
If we are dissatisfied with how things are going and we want our situation to change, or if we want more of something (love, excitement, relaxation, money, material things, etc.) in our lives, we must first resonate our Energy to the vibration of gratitude for all that we already have.
The universe speaks vibrations, not words. If you are already vibrating gratitude for the air you’re breathing, the water you’re drinking, the sun, the moon, the stars, and do on, the universe gets the message that you are already grateful for what you have and will conspire with you to help create more of what you are loving.
The vibration of fear, scarcity and lack will manifest more of the same. Shift your perception. Even if you were living in a cardboard box in a dark alley, you can still say, “I’m so grateful for this shelter over my head. I want more of this.“ And then hold the vibration of gratitude and visualize what exactly your new shelter is going to look like and how you will feel inside this new shelter. Feel as if it has already happened. Visit yourself in the future having already accomplished manifesting your new home. Question yourself: how did your future self attain this new home, what were the steps taken, who assisted you, what did you have to learn, etc.? And your path will be laid out for you.
Similarly, if you are in disharmony with your situation, this is a signal of the changes that need to be made. This is your opportunity to take advantage of the changes that are available to you and coming your way. Don’t let these opportunities pass by you, take advantage of them. Move forward with an attitude of gratitude, knowing that you have the power to make the changes in your life that you want to see."
