Gratitude vs Appreciation Update:

I was discussing this with one of my meditation partners and she made a point that caused a deeper understanding . . . . . .

My ups and downs caused me to gravitate towards “Appreciations” as an immediate tool to gain relief from my momentary low periods. an example would be: when I catch myself in circular thinking, if I can see something beautiful, hear a bird, or something along those lines, in that moment, if I can appreciate that, these momentary feelings are often enough to lift me from the circular lows. If I can substain these awarenesses longer by using other appreciation discoveries, there’s a good chance I can break the circle, hence regaining my overview of “Gratitude” and get back in the “groove of gratitude”

thanks Ruth

“Gratitude is a wonderful emotion. Appreciation is ten times better. Gratitude almost always points you toward the thing you’ve overcome. Appreciation aligns you with the Source within you. They are very different vibrations.”

I subscribe to a yahoo group JustChannelings. Its a digest of Channelings from many people. Yesterday, I found my daily focus on Gratitude and ran across an interesting quote from Abraham-Hicks website.

This quote hit me like a 2by4 because on closer pondering, I began to know not think know that there is a subtle and distinct difference in how these attitudes “feel” in my body.

Appreciation feels lighter, joyful, playful and open-ended.
My heart soared when I sat in appreciation of my life as it was unfolding.

You can imagine my surprise at this subtle shift. Since that moment the word appreciation has been popping out of my mouth endlessly.

Try it for a couple hours when you reflect upon your friends, family, and daily life stuff.
