Law of Attraction in Action: Appreciation vs. Gratitude

This is post 134 in my series on the Law of Attraction in Action. You CAN use your power to attract all that you need. I do it every day! Read all the posts in my Law of Attraction in Action Series to see how.

People ask me how I learned so much about the Law of Attraction. First, I studied it. But all the studying in the world doesn’t make it work if you don’t use what you learn. I figured that out the hard way when I thought I was doing what I could to manifest but it didn’t bring me what I wanted. So I began to dig deeper to really study how to use the Law of Attraction effectively. That’s when I discovered Esther and Jerry Hicks, whose writing and audio books took me to the next level of getting the Law of Attraction to work with my desires.

One thing emphasized is to focus on what’s good—with enthusiastic appreciation. I began to wonder if that’s the same as gratitude. They seemed the same on many levels but I felt as if they were, we wouldn’t need both words. For me, appreciation is finding the joy in everything you have an do and savoring the joyful aspects that create positive emotions. Gratitude is an attitude of feeling grateful for what you have. They are similar, but not the same. I found a video with Esther Hicks explaining this and thought it would help you, since both of these emotions fuel the Law of Attraction to work for you.

Esther channels Abraham, who explains how to connect with your source energy, which can mean whatever feels right to you. Check it out!
