Attitude of Appreciation
This is an enormously powerful spiritual wellness drill. Say prayers of thanksgiving on a steady basis. When you're grateful for the good that you already have it paves the way for more good to flow into your life.
What do you have to be glad about? Getting to this gratitude, all the same, isn't always so simple. Being able to authentically express appreciation requires you to shift your focus away from the things that are damaging and toward those things that you feel grateful for.And as you already know, it's really simple to forget to be thankful for all the astonishing things we experience on a daily basis.
Many of us living in western society tend to center on what we don't have. We believe we don't have adequate money, we don't have adequate time, we don't have the mate we're seeking etc. And in this exercise -- which may frankly dominate our daily thinking if we're not careful -- we tend to disregard those stonishing things we do have. So the more we may step back and have a look at what we already experience that's valuable to us, the more we may center on gratitude and the more we may accelerate our own inside healing as a result.
Here's a list of a few of the things for which you might find plenty of appreciation:
• Your wellness. EvAttitude of Appreciationen if it isn't perfect, you might be grateful for the health you have.
• Your loved ones.
• Your freedoms (freedom of speech, and so forth.)
• Your intelligence, awareness and consciousness.
• Your memories! (Life without memories would be freaky...)
• Sunshine and nature -- the great outdoors.
• Food and seeds, a few of the many remarkable presents from Mother Nature.
• Your occupation, business or job which supplies the revenue you require.
• Your curiousness and want to learn new things.
• A spiritual wakening, or realization or philosophy that you abide by.
• Your pets / creature companions.
As an individual who's written both favorable and negative stories for a lot of years, I'm acutely aware of this dynamic. When I compose negative stories, the energy that's reflected back is frequently negative in its tone, particularly from the parties being criticized. But when I compose favorable stories, the energy that's reflected back to me is really positive.
What's intriguing about all this is something the Buddhists will tell you: In terms of self-healing, it doesn't truly matter what you express appreciation towards -- the positive feedback and forces on your own healing are still present.
You may find a rock on a dirt path and convey appreciation toward the rock and you'd still get a measurable benefit from it. You may, in fact, convey appreciation towards any thing or any individual in the world -- even if such appreciation isn't necessarily justified -- and yet experience the benefits of that appreciation in your own mental and physical healing. This even works if you convey appreciation towards larger concepts like "life‖, the higher power, or the universe‖ Anger is a destructive emotion as it induces stress, adrenal depletion and tension throughout the body. But you may learn to replace anger (or other damaging emotions) with appreciation, and anger can't coexist with appreciation. In that way, appreciation may begin to nudge out the other damaging emotions you may be experiencing. This doesn't mean you have to run around blindly grateful for everything without discerning times when critique or anger may be called for, but the more you may find the appreciation in daily things, the more you'll set off and support your body's inner healing procedures.
