Gratitude Monday -- It's Weird But It Works Edition

Do you swear at your computer?
Who doesn't?

Recently I have changed my attitude toward my computer to the point I no longer see it as an inanimate object, but rather a device molded from once-living materials. Like any living creature it wants to be appreciated.

This may be a bit of  stretch so let's take it down to its simplest expression: everything is energy and energy responds to what we send it.  Be nice to the energy and the energy will be nice to you.

The slice of quartz that runs the show is from a living object. It has a consciousness.  Treat it kindly.

If you are grateful for your computer and what it does for you, tell it so. I have been thanking mine lately and even told it I love it a few times.

I swear it is working better. It was having issues shutting down and would freeze at the last second. Since I have been doing this it shuts down quicker and has even not frozen a few times.

On the physical side I changed a few things around so the back up battery isn't right behind it. Perhaps that was enough to keep it slightly cooler thus not requiring the extra time to pop off properly.
But I maintain showing it appreciation is key. When I do this I am also putting out gratitude to the Universe and that is always the right move.

I am grateful for my computer, for it working better, and for me forming the thought to do it and acting on the thought.

So much yes to this. I am working to change my language around lots these days… This is one. And my relationship with Money is the other

Thank you, Carla. My relationship to money needs some work, too. I have progressed to writing thank you at the bottom of cheques I write to pay the bills, but there's much more to go.

Dear iPhone, I love you. Thank you for all you do for me. Thank you for all the knowledge you carry inside you. I am grateful for you.

Leah, you have me publicly confessing my iPhone love and gratitude. Thank you.

Hmm, all my electronics have been acting out lately, so heck it's worth a shot!

BTW, "Its weird but it works" could describe my entire life...

Leah J. Utas said...

You are welcome, Kimberley.

J. Graham, you won't hurt anything. And yeah, my life, too.

I would say "It's weird but it works" is my motto.

I have a long history of feeling affection for inanimate objects. I fell in love with my first alarm clock when I was six. (It was a Baby Ben with glow-in-the-dark hands and numbers.) When it died, five or six years later (no doubt its life was so short due to being knocked to the floor rather often as I flailed around trying to turn it off--I don't wake up well) I cried, even though the one that replaced it was the identical model.

Gratitude never comes back to us void. Once i started thanking my brain for remembering things (insted of fussing at myself for forgetting in the first place), i started to remember better.

Leah J. Utas said...

Mary Anne, replacements are just not the same.

Messymimi, that's wonderful. I am going to do that.
