Do you dare to cherish Everyone?


Gratitude Quote



Believers in the Law of Attraction know the value and role of Gratitude in achieving their goals and desires. But did you know that Gratitude also helps to heal the mind and body and align the Soul with the Universe bringing good abundance and prosperity?

Like attracts Like and if you really believe in good, then even when things are not going the way you want them to, the Universe responds by sending you help. Being genuinely grateful helps to raise your vibrations and attract that which is good for you.

In fact, any activity that makes you feel positive assists in taking your game to the next level.  

Part of feeling sincere gratitude for what you do have is to acknowledge and recognize the true value of what is available to you and not, what is not. I often ask my clients in their kick-off session to list what is working for them, the positives and then later, what is not working. The results of this exercise always lead to a breakthrough and clarity for action and change in one’s attitude, particularly towards other people.

Here is a simple way to raise your vibrations and supplement your Gratitude Journal. I read about it years ago and find from experience that it works. This simple spiritual practice which I understand was first shared by His Holiness, The Dalai Lama is a wonderful way to start the day and sets the tone for much happiness. It also helps to teach the Soul the important attribute of Compassion.

Spend five minutes at the beginning of each day remembering that we all want the same things, (to be happy and loved) and that we are all connected to one another.

Spend five minutes breathing in – cherishing yourself, then breathing out – cherishing others. An important point here is to include those people whom you find difficult to deal with. I find that if I do that sincerely enough, a change does come about in my relations and interactions with them.

Continue this practice during the day with everyone you meet, no matter how important or not important they are, whether you like them or not. There is no hard and fast rule about expression; try a simple Good Morning, a smile or even a wave of the hand.

Continue this practice no matter what happens during the day and what anyone does to you.

You will notice that at the end of the day, you will have more items to put in your Gratitude Journal.

Try it and do come back to share how your day went.

    This article was like a breath of fresh air! Thank you for sharing it!

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thank you for dropping by Marveena and for the compliment. I have always believed that once we appreciate what we have, whether good or bad, we can move to the next level of having what would give us peace and happiness.

  2. Alexandra McAllister says:

    Beautifully written article, Vatsala. I use the Law of Attraction as well as Ho’oponopono. I believe that we should use whatever brings us to the peace that we need in our life every day. Thanks so much for sharing.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thank you, Alexandra. I agree with you completely. The Bhagavad Gita states clearly that happiness comes from within. Appreciation, Gratitude, Cherishing, Law of Attraction and especially Ho’oponopono help to find the happiness within – our state of perfect Buddhahood.

  3. Anne Allen says:

    Thank you for this post, Vatsala–this is beautifully written and I love the Law of Attraction. Like definitely attracts like.

  4. I love the reminder to include the morning practice throughout the day and with everyone you meet. Will definitely give this a try this week.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      That sounds great, Lisa! Do let me know not if it made a difference, but how much of a difference!The day seems to go so much smoother with a bit of cherishing.

  5. For me, I find that spending time with God every morning sets the pace and tone for my day. Can’t go wrong with him on board! :)

    • Karmic Ally says:

      With God on our side and Faith in our heart, even the worst possible day is bearable and something good comes out of it. Thank you Norma, I cherish you!

  6. Tom Holmberg says:

    I completely agree, gratitude is the currency of trust and good-will

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thank you for dropping by at my blog, Tom. Gratitude is such an underestimated tool for bringing happiness into our lives.

  7. MamaRed says:

    In the early 90s I was going through a tough time and my therapist “assigned” an Attitude of Gratitude and learning to say “Thank you” when given a compliment. I figured it was a stupid exercise, a waste of time, never realizing first, how hard it would be when I first started and second, how much of a difference it would make.

    Thanks for a simple way to do this (especially great when you’ve forgotten, like I have, to practice that Attitude of Gratitude!)

    many blessings
    MamaRed

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thank you MamaRed for visiting my blog. I am grateful for your sharing your personal story with my readers giving proof of the difference that the Attitude of Gratitude makes. I cherish you!

  8. Lisa Wells says:

    Like attract like. I love this thought. I shall relay this to my middle school students next year.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thank you Lisa! A Primary School Teacher who attended my Creative Visualization workshop last year taught some of the easier techniques to her 1st grade students and actually reported back that a couple of the rowdy ones mellowed down! I look forward to your feedback.

  9. Shelley Webb says:

    Wonderful advise. I’ll begin putting that into practice in the morning. Yes, basically we do all want the same things (along with Maslow’s hierarchy of needs).

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Welcome, Shelley! I agree wholeheartedly with you. Being loved and happy is as essential as the foundation need in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.

  10. Thank you for this wonderful way to start (and end) my day. I’ve always said thank you, it’s impossible for me not to. But I’ve never learned to cherish myself, only others. It will take time but I’m determined to start cherishing myself and those I’d sooner ignore.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Welcome Kathy! A good first step is to start saying Thank You to yourself – that is cherishing too! I admit, I found it hard to cherish those I’d like to ignore but have since discovered that by doing it, the sting of those folks does not affect me. Instead, I find I continue to grow stronger, much to the stinger(s) dismay!

  11. Burton says:

    Such a great article I had to read it twice. I add seven minutes of gratitude to my meditation every morning. I am not sure which part of my morning ritual working the best but you are right. I feel great most everyday. I liked the part about how we can change our associations to people we may not have a good relationship with. I am going to give this a try. Thanks again.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thank you, Burton. I feel it might be that both Gratitude and Meditation are working together to raise your vibrations. When the mind is still in meditation, your thoughts do reach your sub-consciousness and stay the whole day. Cherishing those who cause us unhappiness lessens their hold on us and that in itself raises our vibrations to attract all that is good for us and those around us. Would love to receive feedback on how it goes for you. Please do visit the blog again!

  12. Marie Leslie says:

    What a wonderful way to start each day. Taking the time to meditate and start our days with peace is great, taking that time to train ourselves to always look for and focus on the positive is even better. Developing the habits of gratitude and positivity will improve everyone’s life.

    • Karmic Ally says:

      I agree,it is a wonderful way to start each day, Marie Leslie. I find the cherishing practice works as a stress management tool too to cope with people whose actions and behavior are outside of our control. Thank you for dropping by at my blog. Hope to see you again soon!

  13. I love this suggested technique! What a wonderful way to focus down to what really matters and walk throughout the day in gratitude. I am implementing it today. Thank YOU!

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Welcome Martha. I’d love to know how the technique works for you. With clarity comes success in tasks and goals and gratitude makes it so much easier to stay in the flow of abundance.

  14. Great inspiration! Thank you for sharing such a positive post.

  15. I love your points of gratitude and compassion. Starting and ending the day with gratitude for everything is a beautiful set of bookends of a life well lived. Thank you for your beautiful article.

  16. Sharon O'Day says:

    Ah, a new program to apply in my days’ first five minutes! I find that if I vary how I spend that time, maybe moving from one to another every few weeks, it seems to keep things from getting mundane or routine. And we all know that anything “routine” doesn’t have the effective energy level. Thanks for the great suggestion!

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Variation does help to get energy moving again. Thanks for dropping by Sharon. Onwards and upwards!

  17. Uday says:

    Must try it!

  18. I LOVE this article Karmic Ally! It’s so true that gratitude plays a really big part in health and wellness – to me it’s a part of unconditional love and unconditional trust… thanks for your inspiration.

  19. I love this and try to practice the law od attraction! What a great way to start your day! Thank you for sharing this!

    • Karmic Ally says:

      Thank you for visiting my blog, Elizabeth and for motivating me to continue sharing my knowledge and experience with simple tips and practices to make the most of one’s day.

My mission is to help career professionals with drive and passion who who suddenly find themselves in a mid-career crisis or have lost sight of their original life aspiration to reclaim control of their careers and lives by reconnecting them to what they really want through a better understanding and more effective application of their unique strengths, abilities, passions and values. I guide my clients back to living a full life unapologetically using their new inspired and empowered perspective

I live my  life on my terms according to my Unapologetic Manifesto and encourage my clients to live by their personal Manifesto. But it wasn't always like that. 

I, like you am a corporate professional of over 25 years work experience who has struggled and won the battles of stress management, life balance and career nurturing to emerge in a place where I can confidently say that I live my desired.

When my clients first come to me, they are not in a very happy place and need clarity about themselves and their career. Many have life balance problems and I intuitively help to identify their real issues with exercises to still their mind and allow their inner feelings to emerge in a place of confidentiality and trust. I support their decisions to live their lives rather than one that is expected of them.

If you are an ambitious professional who strives to be at the top of your chosen profession but know that somewhere along the way, you have lost sight of what really makes your heart sing or suddenly find yourself overwhelmed and questioning yourself about your choices, then my journey to becoming the Karmic Ally Coach will sound familiar.  

I adhere to the Certified Coaches Alliance Code of Ethics and Standards. A copy is available on request.
