Gratitude Overview

“In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.”

~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer (1906-1945)

Research shows that gratitude plays an important role in human societies. In his book Thanks!, Dr. Robert Emmons states that research has shown “…that gratitude is positively related to such critical outcomes as life satisfaction, vitality, happiness, self-esteem, optimism, hope, empathy, and the willingness to provide emotional and tangible support for other people, …”.

The Law of Attraction argues that thoughts are energy. Gratitude is a thought mixed with a strong component of amplifying emotion. The high frequency energy of gratitude emanating from an individual has a positive effect in the universe.

The ICHIWAH Scientific Do-It-Yourself Manifestation Device supports Gratitude.

What is Gratitude?

  • Gratitude is the positive recognition of benefits received.
  • Gratitude is an emotion.
  • Gratitude is a virtue.

Gratitude is one of the positive emotions such as appreciation, love, compassion, amusement, joy, hope, confident, empowered, valued, precious, sensational, valued, serene, optimistic, lucky, fulfilled, to name just a few.

Gratitude is not necessary a simple emotion. One description is of gratitude as a blended emotion that includes awe, admiration, reverence, envy, resentment, embarrassment, and jealousy (William McDougall).

Consensus states that gratitude is not complete until the received benefit is acknowledged through some kind of return action. Someone once stated this as “Give back the goodness.”

Some synonyms for gratitude: acknowledgment, appreciativeness, gratefulness, and thankfulness.

Why Bother With Gratitude?

Dr. Barabara Fredrickson in her book, Possitivity states “Gratitude opens your heart and carries the urge to give back – to do something good in return, either for the person who helped you or for someone else.”

Citing again from Dr. Emmons’ book Thanks, “Binding people together in relationships of reciprocity, gratitude is one of the building blocks of a civil and humane society.”

What Are Some Forms That Showing Gratitude Can Take?

Look for, and take advantage of, opportunities to express gratitude to family, friends, neighbors, local community, national community, and/or even the international community.

Just a few ideas of things you could consider sharing as expressions of gratitude:


“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”

~ John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)


3 Steps to Manifesting Gratitude Using the ICHIWAH Device

1. Place a Gratitude Card in the ICHIWAH device

Express Gratitude after the satisfactory manifestation of each of your Result Requests. Leave your ICHIWAH configured exactly as it was for the result just manifested. Select the Gratitude Card that matches the primary energy of the manifested result.

  • Place this Gratitude Card, energy color side facing up in your ICHIWAH.
  • Place this Gratitude Card on top of the Result Request Card still positioned in the ICHIWAH from this last manifestation. Make sure the card title (e.g., Adventure) points toward its corresponding Energy Frame Side.

2. Tweak daily for this Gratitude Manifestation

It is important for Gratitude Manifestations, just as with any manifestation request, that you inject a daily surge of personal electromagnetic energy into the ICHIWAH cosmic connection. This is easily accomplished by rotating (tweaking) a Power Peg with its Cosmic Force Containment Device.

Gratitude uses a special approach to tweaking. For the duration of a particular Gratitude Manifestation, three of the Power Pegs remain stationary, virtually locked into the Cosmic Number pattern of 1 3 7. The fourth Peg is the Gratitude Peg; the peg that gets the daily Gratitude tweaking.

Tweak for Gratitude illustrates and explains the 1-3-7 side designations.

What value should be used for the daily alpha setting?

The recommendation is to use the gamma (γ) value from the daily DIPS (Daily ICHIWAH Power Settings). Note the use of the Greek letter gamma (γ) to designate the value for the Gratitude setting.

This gamma value is derived from that day’s alpha, omega, mi and psi values. Thus, the gamma value has built into it the astrological energy of the sunrise + the sunset + the moon rise + the moon set at the Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt of that day’s posted DIPS.

An example of what a DIPS looks like:

DIPS: Tue 2011.11.01 / α-3, ω-5, μ-9, ψ-8 / γ-7

The last three characters, γ-7 identify this day’s Gratitude power setting. What looks like the letter ‘y’ is actually the Greek letter gamma. When in Gratitude Mode, only the gamma value is used from the DIPS, as the omega, mi, and psi Power Pegs remain fixed at their respective settings of 1, 3, and 7. Likewise, when in normal Manifestation Mode, the DIPS gamma value is ignored while the alpha, omega, mi, and psi values are used for the daily Power Peg settings.

3. Go about your day, taking appropriate action on any Gratitude RBLs (Random Bits of Luck) you notice the Universe coincidentally making available to you

As can be seen in the ICHIWAH Big Picture, requests placed in your ICHIWAH device entangle with Cosmic energy sources which in turn generate energy ripples manifesting as observable events on earth. When in Gratitude Mode, these observable events (RBLs – Random Bits of Luck) will be Gratitude opportunities in your primary manifestation energy. Lucky coincidences presented to you for you to consider taking action on. In this case, actions that will be expressing some form of gratitude.

“Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.”

~ Aesop (620-550 BC)

Real results, whether personal manifestation requests or gratitude manifestations, come about when the subconscious mind connects with the ancient energies of the universe.

ICHIWAH is a metaphysical scientific do-it-yourself tool that facilitates this connection. ICHIWAH works on the conscious mind, providing a plausible scientific basis for the Law of Attraction. The conscious mind then works away on the stubborn cautious subconscious mind; gradually making an acceptable, convincing, winning argument.

No matter how temporary, when the subconscious mind connects with the Universe, personal manifestations, as well as gratitude manifestations, happen.

ICHIWAH is your personal connection to the Universe.
