Why Is Gratitude So Powerful And Important?
Do you express gratitude and appreciation regularly? Yes, these two actions can make your life and others’ lives much more fulfilled. And everyone wants to feel more fulfilled? When someone expresses gratitude towards you, it also creates gratitude and thanks within you. This sense of gratitude transmission is very important and one of the many reasons I chose this topic. We’ve been doing this podcast for more than seven years. And once in a while, someone surprises me. This week was one of those times.
How Are You Expressing Gratitude And Appreciation In Your Life?
An Active Gratitude Display
A lady wrote to me, saying, “Thank you so much. for everything you’ve given. Thank you so much for everything that you have taught me. And I would like to give back to you.” And, this lady offered me some things which I greatly appreciated. It lightened my heart.
These gratitude examples happen in my life every once in a while. Occasionally I will receive a gift or some form of display of gratitude and appreciation. And it means the world to me. Knowing I have made a difference for or touched someone enough for them to reach out to me with a show of thankfulness makes such a difference. I feel very appreciative of it. Their appreciation of me causes a powerful sense of gratitude in me. What a wonderful circle this creates, and the best part is that it is so easy to do.
Gratitude And Appreciation Examples
One of the people watching the show live tonight is one of these people. A shout-out to Andarini. I met Andarini really at a live event. She came with a gift from her country, which I greatly appreciated. These expressions of appreciation are a form of validation for what I do in the world.
What Gratitude Really Means
So what is gratitude? It’s a feeling or expression of admiration, approval, or appreciation. And when something appreciates, it grows and expands. And when you appreciate something or somebody, you acknowledge and value them.
Gratitude and appreciation are qualities of being thankful. These displays cause you to show appreciation and return kindness. Both of these are vibrations, and they are unconditional and heart centered vibrations. So if you are grateful and appreciative, you’re in a higher vibrational state of forgiving, joyful, loving, and kind.
This helps you let go of expectations and other lower vibrations that are not a match for appreciation and gratitude. Both appreciation and gratitude and appreciation are super high vibrations. These vibrations are very close to the highest vibration, that of love.
How Do You Raise Your Spiritual Frequency?
When you delve into actively practicing spirituality, one question comes up often. It is a question of raising your consciousness. The answer is simple, raise your vibration and frequency. But how do you raise your frequency? The simple answer is to be in a state that causes it. Choose positive states of being as mentioned, forgiving, joyful, loving, and kind. They all allow you to move into an expansive state.
If you think about feeling appreciative, it is a state of expansion. And in that state of expansion, it allows you to be open, more wide-reaching, expanding your consciousness, and explore more things.
A Gratitude Attitude Is Necessary For Manifestation
Because you are in a higher vibrational state, you can attract positive situations and positive realities. You can attract innovative ideas unavailable to you at lower vibrations. You are always talking about wanting to create wonderful positive things in your life. To do so, you need to increase your vibration. You can use the vibrations of gratitude and appreciation to help manifest the life you truly want.

Because with a lower vibrational set point, you are not a vibrational match for those things you want. You’re not going to find that life you desire. They’re not going to be available to you with a lower vibration.
The world, the universe, and everything in it is energy, and energy has a vibrational signature. And because the energy you’re putting out matches the energy you will receive. So if you’re putting out love, appreciation, gratitude, then love, appreciation, gratitude is what’s coming back at you.
Why Is Gratitude Important?
But if you’re putting out something at a lower frequency lower, love, appreciation, and gratitude are not going to be able to come back at you because you’re not a vibrational match. You cannot experience what you are not a vibrational match for. You can only experience a vibration that is a match for the vibration that you are being. So this concept is being stated in different ways because it is crucial. It is the basis of life.
For example, think of yourself as a magnet. And the magnetic force that you exude is adjustable. So set your magnet to loving beautiful experiences. What comes your way will be exactly that. Now if you set your magnetic force to negative and unhappy, well, you become a crap magnetic.
Think about the vibrations of greed and fear and expectation and judgments. Those vibrations contradict, limit and reverse the vibrations of gratitude and appreciation. Those are not vibrations that expand.
Gratitude Practice Ideas
Life itself is a vibrational practice. It’s a case of being mindful of yourself, your thoughts, and your emotions. It would be beneficial for you to take stock of the vibration you are in. Here are some ways that you can do this.
5 Ways To Practice Gratitude
- Daily Gratitude Journal – Writing a gratitude journal or gratitude book is a great daily practice. So what do you write in a gratitude journal? First, find three things that you are grateful for and put them to paper. This can keep you in a reflective practice of looking for gratitude examples throughout the day.
- Mindfulness Practice -Set little bits of time aside daily to ask yourself where you are vibrationally right now. Are you in a state of appreciation? Or is it something else? For example, maybe you are judging somebody. “look at them. Look at what they’re doing. They should be doing something different than that.”
- Reject Fear – Are we are you in a state of fear? So where’s your vibration? What are you feeling? What are you thinking? Remove that super-negative emotion from your life. Remember the acronym False Evidence Appearing Real. So why spend your energy on something that is not necessarily real.
- Act Grateful And Appreciative – Say thank you often. Smile at people. Ask people how they are, and then LISTEN to their answers. Try it at the grocery checkout. It is incredible how it can make someone’s day and, in turn, yours.
- Meditation – Meditation is the roadway to connect with your higher self, Spirit. The closer you get to your true identity, the higher your vibration. And the more you practice this, the longer you stay in that vibration.
