You probably already know that grateful people are happier and more fulfilled with their lives, but did you know that grateful people are HEALTHIER?
It is true, feeling grateful, will improve your health. This means that the effects of gratitude go way beyond those already known to those of us who use the Secret Course
It turns out the human heart creates an electromagnetic field that expands about five out from the body. The field itself is much stronger than the electromagnetic field created by the brain (it’s about 60 times stronger to be exact.)
Scientists have been studying this field and found that when a person is experiencing stress or anxiety the electromagnetic waves are shorter in length and more erratic in nature.
Positive feelings brought about heart frequencies that were smoother and more consistent, but researchers took note that gratitude changes the heart’s rhythm more easily and faster than any other positive feeling.
What’s even more interesting is that because this field extends outside your body it can affect the hearts and brains of others who are nearby. So if you are in a state of gratitude, you are likely changing the feelings of those around you and “bringing them up” as it were.
Who doesn’t want to be around someone who is happy and pleasant?
We’ve all heard that you are influenced by the people that you spend the most time with, but who knew it was happening on this level?
You might want to spend some time thinking about the people you are spending time with and consider if they are influencing you for the better each day.
