The Essence of Gratitude and Appreciation

Feb 1, 2008
Expressing gratitude and appreciation for what is in your life is one of the quickest ways to bring into your life more things and experiences to be grateful for and to appreciate. Feelings of appreciation and gratitude are just as powerful as the feeling and emotion of love.

Make each day a day to express thankfulness, appreciation, and gratefulness for what is in your lives. In doing so, you will create around yourself a vibration of abundance into which you will attract even more things to be grateful for in your life.

As you do this, it will become more noticeable to you what a wonderful life you have and the events in the past that bothered you will dissipate and not be evident at all.

Turn your thoughts to thoughts of appreciation and gratitude. Then take these thoughts and write them down. In this way you will reinforce that vibration of gratefulness and appreciation.

You have many things to be thankful for. Things that are most physically evident in your life probably come to your mind first. But delve deeper and appreciate that which is beyond the physical sight.

Look within yourself, appreciate, and admire the traits, characteristics, and qualities that are yours and in others. Be accepting of the differences of others and be grateful for the contrast that person presents to you.

You do not have to accept it as your own, but allow that person to be freely the unique individual they are. Appreciate their uniqueness and allow it to be.

Then go even deeper. Appreciate and be grateful for the mind that you have and the power that you have been given through your mind to freely create your life as you desire.

Be grateful that you are free to choose to create anything you desire to have. Be grateful that the power of your mind is unlimited. The only thing that limits you and your mind is your thoughts and beliefs of limitation.

Explore and use the power of your mind, remove your limitations, and you will discover a treasure chest of wealth beyond your wildest imaginations. Learn how to use your mind like a finely honed tool for it is a resource that will become more powerful and refined through your use of it. In doing so, you will then become more powerful in easily creating the life you desire.

Be thankful and grateful for the gift of your mind and all it is capable of doing for you. Appreciate that this ability to create is within you and not outside you. It is a gift given to you as a resource of creation.
