Raise Your Vibration by Saying Thank You on the Full Moon
Raise Your Vibration by Saying Thank You
Writing lists of things I’m grateful for in life has always been an awkward and uncomfortable practice for me.
The resistance is deep-seated and more complex than I could have imagined.
Over the years, I’ve become programmed to not expect good things to last, and in an attempt not to instigate a premature ending, I chose not to acknowledge gratitude at all.
This is the result of experiencing comfort and contentment one minute, and then seeing my world implode the next.
My reaction makes sense, but it’s not healthy or beneficial. Over the past 12 months, I’ve made a big effort to write a gratitude list at every Full Moon.
Why the Full Moon & Gratitude?
Full Moon energy is about completion.
It’s the energetic climax of the lunar cycle, and as such anything you do that helps you review, reflect and reset is beneficial.
Consider that expressing gratitude is a free and easy way to raise your vibration.
Now, consider that the intensity of the energy around us at a Full Moon can supercharge those feelings of gratitude and therefore boost the impact of gratitude.
Basically, what you get is a double dose of high vibe energy injected into your day.
Gratitude is saying ‘thank you’
I find the statement ‘I am grateful for’ strange to say, because it’s not how I speak.
To connect with this ritual, I find it much easier to say ‘Thank you for’ instead.
Things I am thankful for
It’s always good to get inspiration, so let me share one of my thank you lists with you.
I wrote this one when I was struggling with anxiety and depression during lockdown, and although it was difficult to get started, the list just kept coming.
Thank you for….
- the lessons you are showing me
- this opportunity to become stronger
- giving me options to explore my potential
- asking me to go deep
- encouraging creativity
- helping me learn so I can support others
- allowing me to experience being human
- giving me evidence that I can get through anything
- increasing my knowledge and wisdom
- sharpening my problem-solving skills
- showing me who I am and who I am meant to be
- showing the world that I am a survivor, a light-bringer and a guide
- asking me to think outside the box
- taking me out of my comfort zone
- not letting me lead a boring life
- shaking things up so I don’t miss the potential all around me

I highly recommend you take the time to write your own list.
