There’s some profound power in appreciating things in your life. It’s humbling and adds great character, but there’s a true essence appreciation has that goes beyond a platonic Thank You. A Thank You that is empty are the times when its said just to be polite and inside you don’t feel thankful. Yeah, those types of thanks isn’t where the power lies. It’s the feeling that’s important and it’s the feeling that will bring more in which you want in your life.
To be better creators in our experience we have to appreciate the things we have now in our lives. Many of us, including me, want to create and change our lives to the way we want it to be and it is possible! But first, we have appreciate to attract. For example, if you do something small for someone and you feel the appreciation from them, what do you want to do? Give more, of course! But if a person is asking and not appreciating, being a brat and so on, you’re more than likely going to withdraw. In the withdrawal you are actually without realizing giving the other person what they are dwelling upon…the lack of.
You don’t want to the brat. The Universe won’t translate that to your favor. Appreciation puts you into a positive mind frame by directing pleasing thoughts into your mind. In the book Ask And It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks, they call it Rampage of Appreciation. It is a process to do to remain in a good feeling mood to stay in alignment to the things you ask for.
Example of this process my go:
When Grocery Shopping: I like how this story is fully stocked. It makes searching for what I want very easily. I like how everything is organized. It’s great that the lines are empty. I appreciate the workers not heckling down my neck to buy something. I’m excited to know the item I want is on sale.
While driving: I trust my car. I love my car. I love the navigation system in my car. These roads are smooth sailing me to my destination and it feels great. I saw beautiful scenery in this car. I saw beautiful scenery now. I appreciate the gas being so cheap.
While home: This bed is so soft and warm. I love this protection from the cold/heat I have. My cover feels like clouds. My body feels so relaxed after a long day. Relaxation is luxury and I am feeling that right now.
This is a great way to practice being optimistic. This process also trains you to be aware of things so they will not be taking for granted. In and everything and everything can and should be appreciated. Even in the worst of situations there’s always a positive way to look at things.
You’re going to need this mindset when you are deliberately creating things you want into your life.
Try it. It works
Feel good feels good!
