A thankful heart hath a continual feast. ~W.J. Cameron

Feel it. Offer it. Watch your life transform!

Give yourself the pleasure of a moment of appreciating something, and watch how, just like a magnet, riches on many levels come back to you! Appreciation is defined as “the recognition and enjoyment of good qualities of someone or something.” Opening ourselves to savoring the good qualities of people, circumstances, or things around us is so simple to do. The option is always there. You can experience appreciation and gratitude in any instant you choose. Begin now, today, in this month of November especially, a month that has a built-in day dedicated to reminding us to give thanks and experience gratitude.

Everything in the universe has an energy or an energetic vibration. Even our thoughts are energy. Thoughts register a given “frequency” depending on their type, specifically positive or negative. Similar frequencies of energy group together to create patterns. If you think the same kinds of thoughts, then over time, those patterns actually become something you can feel. These feelings are what we call emotions! Low-frequency emotions, such as anger, jealousy, frustration, or envy are fueled by negative thoughts. High-frequency emotions such as joy, happiness, love, or gratitude are fueled by good, positive thoughts.

The short n’ sweet of it is that being able to appreciate something gifts you a state of positive emotion. If you believe in the law of attraction — that like attracts like — you can easily understand why the high-energy act of appreciating also creates a good, high-energy vibe inside your soul. And then, if you want to really rock this out, continue appreciating as many things as possible. You’ll feel better and better, and begin to attract more amazing opportunities and experiences. Your life satisfaction will skyrocket. The more you appreciate, the more you will receive. You will feel more alive, and more able to recognize the multitude of treasures in your life. So, notice where your golden threads of appreciation take you. What tapestry of gratitude, blessings, abundance, and pleasure will you weave?

It is only with gratitude that life becomes rich. ~D. Bonhoeffer
