Intentional Appreciation

December 5, 2008

Happy Friday everyone!

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, appreciation and gratitude are topics that I like discussing. The reason behind this is that acknowledging the great things that we have going on in our lives is essential to our growth as humans.

Gratitude and appreciation are  power tools that help us build a joyful, abundant and optimistic life. This can be done right here and right now. Learning to generate these feelings in real time, no matter how the situation appears, is a key concept in healing and releasing old wounds and perceived problems. When you develop the practical and spiritual tools of being grateful and appreciative for all that comes your way, you’re on the path to a blissful, energy-packed life.

Even if your life is functioning fairly well but lacks a little of the zest and zeal you desire, gratitude and appreciation, generated on purpose and with intention will ignite your soul like nothing else.

We live in a very stressful and fast-paced society. It’s easy to accumulate negative emotions from the little day-to-day interruptions of peace in our lives. Gratitude and appreciation will help us look at those interruptions as gifts.

Learning to use gratitude and appreciation within a practical ritual is what helped me deal with the many hardships I faced  in life. I was able to snatch the pearl out of each and every incident by ritualizing the feeling state of appreciation.

We must learn to turn feeling appreciative and grateful into a habit. It’s about as healthy as a habit can get.

Have a great weekend!


Appreciation and Gratitude

November 21, 2008

It’s Friday. The end of the workweek (or school week) for most of us. After going through another week filled with a seemingly interminable list of challenges, it seemed like Friday couldn’t come fast enough. Well, here it is. Now it’s time to be grateful and appreciative.Your body, mind and soul will thank you.

Appreciation combines thankfulness, admiration and gratitude. Scientists have discovered that appreciation is one of the easiest and most powerful positive feelings to activate. When an individual taps into the positive feelings of appreciation, he allows himself the chance  to see the big picture. This is true even in stressful moments.

Each person has the ability to reach the highest level of his or her potential when connected to more positive, heartfelt states like appreciation and gratitude. Activating appreciation and gratitude allows you to be totally focused, maintaining high levels of energy.

Appreciation is a super-power tool for your own growth Appreciating what is, rather than focusing on and complaining about what isn’t, helps you make peace in the moment. Appreciation is also one of the easiest heart frequencies to shift into. You’ll feel the difference fast.

I told you your body, mind and soul will thank you.

Have a wonderful weekend!
