Every where I look the last few weeks I see gratitude. In books, emails, products, cards, even in people. It is a wonderful thing to feel and live in gratitude. I am so glad so many people realize the power of gratitude and appreciation!
I spoke with a client the other day and she said she has learned to appreciate what she has now and not be so focused on what she wants next. It was in interesting conversation, because i understand what she means…and I see it it another way too.
I think it is powerful to appreciate the things you have right now in your life. Absolutely!! However……. I think that some people and religions and other groups take it too far. When it goes into the feelings of guilt and “I don’t deserve” or “I have to be content with what I have…” and such, then it is actually detrimental.
One of the most important things I have learned in life so far is, we are, each and every one of us, deserving of whatever we want. We do not have to do anything to be “good enough”, and we do not have to work hard or struggle or suffer. That is all man made nonsense. We are the only things in the way of us creating our own reality now!
So we discussed how it is great to appreciate what you have now, it will get you seeing and receiving more things to appreciate and so on (see my previous 2 blogs on “looking for what you want”). Also, though, we need to want what we want with complete trust and expectancy, and there is no limit to that. You can have anything, whether anyone else thinks so or not. Getting yourself into a genuine place where you know what you want, you feel you deserve it, you are excited about getting it and you have no doubts or guilt about it at all will accelerate your manifestation!
Be grateful for what you have…AND what you want and know is on it’s way to you. You do not have to settle for less than what you want in any area of your life! You can have it all, do you believe that? Build up your belief and create your life now!!!
