Become an Appreciationist
And we know alignment is the name of the manifesting game!
So it seems worth focusing on how to develop our appreciation skills as deliberate creators. Here are tips for becoming a professional appreciator, but I’d love to hear yours as well in the comments.
Everything works out best when you start it with a deliberate intention, and this gig is no different. Simply holding in mind your desire to become a powerful appreciator will grease the wheels for an easier journey to it.
Commit to it.
A key step to becoming a powerful appreciator is to stick with it. Once you decide this is who you want to be, create a commitment to achieve it. Even though you may not know exactly how or when you’ll get there, your commitment to create a focus on thankfulness will serve you well.
Make a plan for it.
You’ll be more successful at building your appreciation muscle if you have a specific plan for how to engage it. It doesn’t have to be a big deal or a complex plan, but specificity supports success. Even just naming five things you’re grateful for as you drift off to sleep can make all the difference.
Keep a happiness journal.
Make regular entries in a written journal to create a strong focus on what brings you joy. It helps if you’re not obsessive about doing it every day without fail, but rather just making a gentle, relaxed commitment to posting regularly. (I do mine publicly in the GVU forum.)
Hang out with other appreciators.
Energy is contagious, so by spending time with people who are natural appreciators rather than complainers sets you up for success. At the minimum, limit your exposure to those who have tendencies toward pessimism and negativity.
Study the experts.
When I hit a bit of a rough patch in life, dad insisted I read a copy of Pollyanna. She literally changed my life. Pollyanna is an appreciator to the extreme, and can’t help but rub off when you study her! Some have that same experience of Eckhart Tolle. (If you’ve got a particularly helpful appreciation model, please share with us in the comments!)
Get a dog. Or a cat. (Or whatever else you might love.)
Set yourself up for easy, and fill your life with the things that are easy to love and appreciate. For me, that’s animals. For others, it could be music, good food, great books, fun exercise, a new friend, etc.
However you engage the habit of appreciation, you’re sure to find it makes a powerful difference in your vibration and thus your manifesting success. (Not to mention enjoyment of life!)
This one single habit packs tremendous punch in amping up your deliberate creator skills, which is why it belongs in every manifester’s toolkit. Share your tips for building the appreciation muscle in the comments below.
