Giving Thanks Expressions Of Gratitude And Appreciation
Just a simple thank you goes a long way. It’s believed by most that just the acknowledgement of appreciation, giving gratitude, instantly contacts what’s known as one calling the “Higher Self.” It’s a vibrational signature which is also noted in “The Science Of Getting Rich.”
Gratitude taps directly into those emotions which opens into a portal towards a “Higher Mind,” where we’re able to allow insight, wisdom, inspiration and creativity to be able to flow within us. It can also potentially solve solutions to the problems which may plagues us.
The very positive effects of appreciation and carrying forward gratitude has been known and practiced for centuries. The entire structure of positive psychology was actually developed around this practice, as well as various publications listing numerous quotes from both ancient as well as modern day healers are readily available.
Gratitude Or Appreciation
There are however subtle differences in the meaning of gratitude and appreciation. Gratitude focuses more on being thankful towards your fellow person for receiving perhaps a gift, or for something that we have or are happening to be experiencing, something that’s come to us.
Appreciation is more of a feeling of joy, elation or approval as we’re observing something, such as a spectacular sunset at the beach, or an excellent selection of music, or liking a piece of classic art or a movie.
The positive feeling which they portray is the same however, as it’s the emotion which seems to be the power of essence which draws most of the things that we appreciate. There is a famous proverb which states, “When you give thanks for something little, you’ll find a lot.”
When people talk about they being wanting to be ultimately happy, it’s the appreciation that always seems to play a critical role when in that emotional state.
The key to true happiness seems to be you realizing that in most of the circumstances that you face, there’s always something that you can be grateful for, even when on its surface there may be nothing there.
