Does Your Gratitude Have Conditions Attached To It?


Gratitude is our most direct line to God and the angels. If we take the time, no matter how crazy and troubled we feel, we can find something to be thankful for. ~ Terry Lynn Taylor

Have you ever asked yourself that question? I never did—till recently. Here’s Spirit.


Most people find it easy to be grateful for all the “good” things in their lives. There is certainly nothing wrong with that, and we highly recommend you all give thanks every day for your blessings. You have far more blessings than you are usually aware of.

That’s what we want to talk about today. This is where many attach conditions to their gratitude, as our title implies.

Can you be grateful for everything in your life? What you consider “good” certainly. But also what you consider “bad?”

Your life itself is a divine gift. With that gift comes all the “good stuff”—loving relationships, good health, material abundance, etc. Also coming with the gift of life are your challenges—what you might consider “bad stuff.”

We like to think of challenges as opportunities for growth. Even challenges you would consider tragic or disastrous—the unexpected death of a loved one, the loss of a job you love, a life-threatening disease, etc.

All those are certainly opportunities for growth—they will make you stronger and more resilient.

So express gratitude every day for your blessings and your challenges. They are all gifts from spirit.

The simple act of giving thanks will, by itself, expand your personal and spiritual growth. You will radiate a powerful energy that will enliven and enrich every cell in your body. That energy will uplift and inspire other around you. You don’t even have to say anything to them. Your mere presence will touch them and help them move more easily through their own challenges.

That’s how powerful you are. That’s how powerful your gratitude is. So never attach conditions to your gratitude. Give thanks every day for everyone and everything in your life—the “good” and the “bad.”

Ultimately, it’s all good. And all is well.

Here is a beautiful video called, simply, The Power of Gratitude.


In the early 1980s John took a spiritual development course, and was introduced to his first spirit guide, Lydia. After Lydia arrived, three other guides also came to him: Archangel Michael, Tamarra, and Chief Joseph. Today these are John’s four main guides.

Besides his four main ones, John has various other guides. The entire group is really a multidimensional collective consciousness. John refers to the entire group simply as “Spirit.”
