The Attitude of Gratitude and Homeopathy

One of our 3rd year students was published in the Students Corner of "The Canadian Homeopath" February 2013 issue. Today's blog is a copy of that article contributed by Jennifer Metzger BAA.

"Everyone knows that if we can acheive an attitude of gratitude it can be life changing. Expressing gratitude is really an art of noticing and appreciating what is valuable and meaningful to oneself; a general state of thankfullness and/or appreciation. However, developing a mindset of gratitude is a cultivated behaviour.

Homeopathy is full of gratitude form the patients being grateful that someone can help them, to practitioners being full of gratitude. One of the things I have come to realize while attending CCHM is that homeopathy is a healing journey and with that naturally comes gratitude. Homeopathic treatments allow for opportunities to see life's difficulties in a new light and experience them in different ways. One can become quite skilled at seeing opportunities in challenging circumstances and being grateful for, yet another, learning experience.

From what I have experienced and seen, our patients can experience and/or find their gratitude when they see the practitioner practising gratitude.

As a wife, mother, reflexologist, and student, sometimes life can get routine or carried away and I often find myself refocusing to find that "atitude of gratitude". Although being in school and practising homeopathy has allowed me to find new blessings of gratitude on a daily basis, sometimes it will happen and I will recognize it and other times I need to refocus to find it. Below I'm shairng a few ways that I find help me to refocus on gratitude:

  • Every day list 10 things around you that you are grateful for. It might seem daunting but it really isn't. By doing this you are making gratitude intentional and routine.
  • In our house we have a gratitude jar. It is an antique candy jar but a plain jar would work just as well. We will write on little slips of paper something that we are grateful for as it happens to us and date it, fold it and put it in the jar. On the following New Years Eve we read the jar as a reminder of how some of the small fantastic things have impacted us and the larger things!
  • Saying "Thank you". Just take time to thank someone every day, anything from a card to an email or a hand on the shoulder will do.

This gratitude stuff doesn't have to take long and it can be as simple as saying "thank you" and sincerely meaning it. And the great thing is, gratitude is not limited. It can be accessed by anyone, anywhere, anytime and it just takes a moment."

With gratitude to Jennifer for her contribution!
