Upgrade Gratitude Get Appreciation

Updated on July 31, 2009

Gratitude and The Law Of Attraction

Gratitude is a very popular subject especially in relation to the Law Of Attraction. Gratitude is said to be one of the greatest emotions and expressions for attracting and manifesting more of what we want in our lives. There are gratitude books available as well as gratitude journals, gratitude blogs and the list goes on and on.

In the Book, "The Secret", gratitude is specifically expounded on. The writings and sharings have grown tremendously since "The Secret" was released. Gratitude has in fact attracted and manifested wonderful things into many lives since this information has been so publicly proclaimed.

To learn about the upgrade requires a deeper understanding and defining what gratitude is and how it works. Manifesting and attracting with gratitude is great, but what if you could get more?

When something is appreciated, its value increases!
When something is appreciated, its value increases!

The Meaning Of, Thankful, Grateful, and Appreciative

Thank: To express gratitude to - to express satisfaction in something. Thanks: An expression of gratitude. Thank You: A polite expression of ones gratitude. Thankful: conscious of benefit received.

To be thankful, say thanks, thank you, or to thank is an expression of gratitude, an awareness of something received. This is nothing more than a form of verbal expression.

Grateful: Appreciative of benefits received, expressing gratitude. Gratitude: The state of being grateful, thankfulness.

To be grateful or to express gratitude is an emotional state of being. Being grateful is an upgrade from expressing thankful. Thankful is just a verbal expression however, grateful is an emotional energy charged state of being.

Appreciate: To recognize with gratitude, to increase the value of, to increase in numbers or value. Appreciative: Having or showing appreciation.

To appreciate is owning the state of being and expressing the emotion with an intention of increasing the value

Thanks= A verbal expression

Gratitude=Emotional State Of Being

Appreciation=Having ownership with the emotionally charge state of being to increase the value of whatever it is aimed at..

Getting Your Appreciation Upgrade

It is all about the upgrade. We are not always grateful for everything we are thankful for, and we don't always want to appreciate everything we are grateful for. There are times we just say thanks and that is good. There are times we feel gratitude and that is great. There are other times when we really own the feeling of gratitude, it just wells up inside and flows over the edges and can't be contained. This is the moment we break out the upgrade, appreciate, increase the value, spread it around to others.

With appreciation it is more than being it is like a contagion that cannot be contained. The possibility is not just at the moment, it can be attached to, expanded on, unlimited potential. The feeling does not have to be revisited to manifest results. When you have something, you can share it, it can be returned, it can be-come.

What I Appreciate

I appreciate all of the things I cannot see, as well as all of the things I can see.

i appreciate all of the things I don't yet know as well as the things I do know now.

i appreciate all of my emotions no matter what they are at any given moment as they are the keys unlocking the doors to my future.

I appreciate all feelings by physical touch as well as by energetic vibration.

i appreciate each challenge and controversy as it opens a door to a new and wonderful place i have yet to learn and grow from.

I appreciate all hubbers who write and contribute to hub pages, as well as the staff that provides an opportunity for our forums and art.

I appreciate family, friends and associates both those now and those who have passed whether in time or in space.

i appreciate all those I have yet to meet who hold the doors of the future open wide.

I appreciate all that is and all that is yet to come.

I appreciate being and the opportunity to become more.

    These "reminder" Hubs are always a great read for the morning :) I think that it's important to define even seemingly basic terms. I find myself giving random thanks throughout the day, and I think it's a key to my happiness and sanity :)

    YES YES AND YES!!! Another great Hub. If we can only learn to be grateful and thankful of the little things life has to offer, how much more appreciative we are when an unexpected blessing blows our way! We reap what we sow. Perception!!

    SEM Pro: So quick to share the love and the gratitude, may you be blessed as I know you are. We expand and grow together it only takes a small flip of a letter, it's not about Me it is about We.

    fastfreta: Paying attention and putting it out there, I appreciate your comments, it was time for a photo upgrade.

    advisor44qb: Your welcome!!! I appreciate your enthusiasm in all that is positive and uplifting. You are always welcome at my hub pages as much as I enjoy visiting yours!

    Yeah! Spreading the attitude of gratitude improves our whole world! Love the way you share the definitions for deeper understanding emohealer! Appreciate the link too - whenever I check my stats, the gratitude log is the first hub I look at - thoroughly rejoicing with each added visit. A day without looking around and feeling deeply grateful for all we've been blessed to experience, is to diminish our sense of honor, miss the miracles as they unfold and thus shrink our own integrally important part of the whole... Clearly, yours continues to expand my friend :) :) :)
