Hello Positive Peeps!
It’s me Lori, your self-appointed Positivity Princess.
I am here spreading positivity and all things happy.
We all want to live a happy life. To have this you must have a high-vibration. What this means is that you must function, most of the time, from feeings of love and happiness. Often it is said to funtion at love and above. The best way to feel good is to be grateful. Show and feel gratitude. SO …

This is what I did.
I decided to put myself of a 72 hour gratitude challenge.
I used five gratitude methods…like a gratitude-blitz of sorts. I am so excited to share with you the ultimate results.
These are my methods:
1) Strategy: Gratitude AM Prayer
For this challenge you will begin your day in th most positive way possible; with a short positive gratitude prayer. What you do is wake up and reach right for the prayer. The prayer includes three elements.
a) Thank God that I had a lovely restful sleep.
b) Thank God for a new day with opportunities to make all of my dreams come true.
c) Thank God that all of the intention I set far the day will be complete.
Here it is…
2) Strategy: Gratitude Lists
Each day I created a gratitude list using 3 different methods. All three are from “The Last Law of Attraction Book That You Will Ever Need to Read” by Adrew Kapp. Click here for a copy.
These three methods are:
- The Gratitude blitz,
- Gratitude stacking,
Please grab a copy of his book or listen to it though audible. Click here. It s awesome…

The simple way to do a gratitude list is to write 10 things that you are grateful for, daily. You can do this right after your gratitude prayer.

Ok the next method I used daily is:
3)Strategy: Gratitude Meditation
For this I use Youtube premium and I listed to a 5 minute meditation for gratitude. I put the list to the one I used. You can use any you like. I chose this one because it is only 6 minutes.

There are so many benefits to mediation. This article is not about listing the positive side effects although naming a few, will show you that it is worth a try.
- lower blood pressure and heart rate
- help regulate moods and emotions
- reduce the occurrence and triggering of anxiety and depression
- improve decision making
- slow down the aging process
For the challenge, I will do a short meditation 3 times each day, although if you can fit in one mediation session, that is sufficient.
4) Strategy: Gratitude Journal
At this point in your Law of Attraction journey you have undoubtedly heard of the famous gratitude journal. The big question is, do you keep one? Do you write in a journal daily? Some people say, “Yes, I keep a journal. That is sufficient.” The truth is, if you keep a journal, or diary, you should still consider keeping a separate gratitude journal. Let me tell you why.
When you keep a regular journal or diary, it is often a place of purging or venting. We use this free writing as a place to clear our conscience.
I write freely about my feelings of gratitude. I write about things that happened that made me feel grateful. I write about the sensations. I collected gratitude quotes..and other things.

5) Strategy: Gratitude Scripting and the Accompanying Visualization
Last, but not least, I used ‘Gratitude Scripting and Visualization’ as a method to bring gratitude into my life.
Let me quickly explain each one in one sentence each. I will show you as well what each looks like.
Gratitude Scripting – Get a piece of paper, your laptop, or even the notes in your phone and write out a scenario that has either happened already or something that would be an ideal occurence. Make sure that it is something that would bring about positive feelings. Write out the details, including the input all 5 of your senses would experience. You can do this any time of day. Perhaps you should do this during the time of day that you most creative. You will likely know if you are a morning person or a night person. Strangely if you are a morning person, than the night is when you are more organically creative…and vice versa.
Gratitude Visualization – The next step after you have scripted, is to visualize. The best time to do this is at night before you drift off to sleep. This involves following these simple steps:
a) Read your script that you created earlier. Make sure your goal, desire or wish is clear and fresh in your mind.
b) Do a short meditation to clear your mind. This can last 3-5 minutes. This will bring you to an Alpha state of consciousness. This is the gateway to the subconsious. This is a wonderful thing.
c) Lay down, and breathe a few deep cleansing breathes, through your heart and into your belly.
d) Picture in your mind, the exact thing that you scripted. See all of it. Where are you? What is the time of day. Who are you with? What are you doing? Make sure the setting is clear.
e) Add off of the sensory information. What are the smells, tastes, textures, sounds and sights? You can get very detailed here.
f) Lastly, feel all of it. Feeling is the secret. Feel grateful, happy, relieved, joyful and successful. Go to sleep in this blissful state.
Ok So, here is my recording sheet. You can get this on my blog so that you can complete your own 72 hour Gratitude challenge.
Here is where I will post my completed sheet at the end of the 72 Hours.
