Super Attractor by Gabrielle BernsteinIn this post we’re going to play the appreciation game! I learned this tool from the Abraham-Hicks book Ask and It Is Given.

I teach many tools from Abraham-Hicks (often referred to simply as Abraham) in my book Super Attractor.

Appreciation is a big theme in Super Attractor. Not only is it a very important element of manifesting, but it’s also one of the best ways to shift your mood. And the better you feel, the more greatness you attract!

Appreciation turns around a negative attitude fast

The appreciation game is all about getting out of a negative attitude quickly. It’s a fun and easy way to raise your vibration in a matter of minutes.

The simplest way to get out of a negative attitude is to focus on what you appreciate and redirect your focus onto what’s working. Don’t underestimate the practice of saying out loud what you appreciate!

You can watch the video below or keep reading for a breakdown of how to play this simple but powerful game.

Why appreciation is so powerful

I am the loving energy of the Universe | Gabby Bernstein | The Universe Has Your Back card deckWhatever you appreciate you create more of. This is because when you’re in a state of appreciation, you’re in vibrational alignment with your true love nature.

That’s the perfect energy for allowing your desires to come into form.

Appreciation is also the antidote to worry. When you’re in a state of appreciation there’s no room for worry, because they cannot coexist.

Whenever I notice myself worrying about something out of my control, I immediately play the appreciation game and redirect my focus.

How to play the appreciation game with another person

This practice is a great tool for shifting the vibe in a relationship. For example, anytime my husband and I are feeling stressed or arguing over some silly thing, we play the appreciation game.

Tweet: Playing the appreciation game catapults us out of a negative attitude fast. @gabbybernstein #superattractor #abrahamhicks

We just take a couple of minutes to go down the list of what we appreciate about one another. I’ll say something like, “I appreciate the way you take care of me.” He’ll say, “I appreciate how good of a cook you are.”

These are very simple things. But within seconds we start to feel more connected and more loving. And within minutes the entire energy within our relationship changes.

Playing the appreciation game catapults us right out of that negative zone.

How to play the appreciation game by yourself

If you find yourself stuck in negativity, such as feeling anxious about a situation that’s out of your control, stressed out over work or just in a bad mood, then play the appreciation game by yourself.

Out loud (if you can) or to yourself, express appreciation for all that is good in your life. You might say things like:

  • I appreciate all the people who are supporting me.
  • I appreciate the love that’s in my life.
  • I appreciate the home I have.
  • I appreciate the shoes on my feet.
  • I appreciate the meal on the table in front of me.

Going down this list every day — or several times throughout the day — is the fastest way to get out of a negative pattern, a fear-based story, or a toxic situation with a partner or a friend.

Raise your vibration with meditation

Do you have a regular meditation practice? Sitting in stillness for a few minutes each day is a powerful way to cultivate appreciation and get into alignment with the loving energy of the Universe.

I want to make it really easy for you to meditate, so I created a FREE 2-track album of guided meditations! The meditations include my Manifesting Meditation to attract your desires and my Cord-Cutting Meditation to clear negative energy.

What to do once you’ve elevated your energy

When I'm connected to my joyful presence, I attract support from the Universe | Gabby Bernstein | The Universe Has Your Back card deckOnce you’ve played the appreciation game and noticed your energy shift, you’re in a new vibration! At this point you can start reaching for new thoughts that you feel really great about.

Thoughts such as:

  • Yes, I can change this pattern.
  • Yes, I can feel better about this relationship.
  • Yes, I can move forward.

Appreciation is a bridge back to a lighthearted way of being. When you raise your vibration, you become an energetic match for what you want. You begin to magnetize your desires, and your elevated state allows you to lift up and help those around you, too.

Now that you know this exercise, share below! What do you appreciate about yourself, the people around you and your life’s circumstances? Test-drive the appreciation game today and leave a comment letting me know how it goes.

  1. I was irritated by a comment that was made about me which I feel was not a true reflection of me. I have just read this article and feel uplifted. Thanks.

  2. Gabby, I was in a funk today and was searching my email for a report from “Catapult” Health and this email from you just happened to be at the top of my search results…it was just what I needed to raise my vibration today. Thanks for never disappointing. Xoxo, Melanie

    1. Wonderful, Melanie. So glad this post resonates with you. Here is another post that you might find helpful: /feeling-good-every-day/. xoxo

  3. I loved this information so much!! Thank you gabby! I appreciate having you in my life!

    I do have a question, and I’m guessing the answer is yes hahaha but still I wanted to make sure if what I believe is right. ¿Can we also get to use this appreciation game as in a “living in the end” technique? I find it amazing to be used for that too, since it helps you raise your vibration and it also helps you to affirm and feel that it’s already on your physical reality (not because we don’t see it means we don’t have it), it got me wondering. Much love!


    1. Yes, Fer. You can use the appreciation game to express gratitude for having received the thing that you’d like to experience, if you are in a place of “knowing” that this blessing is on the way. I hope this helps! xoxo

  14. Absolutely love this technique. Thank you for sharing.
    My friend and I play “what didn’t break” when we feel things are falling apart and we’re leaning into despair. For example, if the car is making a funny noise and the toilet won’t stop running and we’re getting super frustrated we will stop and look around at everything that is working. Our fridge is working, our heat, our phones, our computer….. Instantly we help one another move from the negative to the positive and solutions unfold. This works for health issues too. Think of all the parts of your body that are working when you’re down about an illness or disability. It works with relationships and job situations. Anything!

    1. Yes, Kim! This is a fun way to pivot so that you’re focusing on the positive rather than the negative. Thanks for sharing! xoxo

  26. It worked!!! I was hesitant to say them out loud, but that is what made the difference. Thank you!!

  27. I appreciate that there are messengers like Gabby to help us navigate through the rough waters of everyday life. We are all in this world together, and we are tied by a higher power. I teach fourth grade and share Gabby’s messages with my students daily. Their youthful hearts are open minded enough to understand and appreciate the wisdom and positivity of these powerful messages. I find a few precious moments whenever I can fit them into our busy school day to work with my students in the hopes of strengthening their life resilience with this wisdom. For that I am grateful and humbled that I too can be a messenger of the light, albeit on a much smaller scale, through my young charges. Thank you Gabby! Peace, light, and love to you.

  29. What a wonderful exercise! I love that this can be done both with a partner or someone else and alone as well. I appreciate this post. I appreciate this time in my life to gain clarity in my life and business. I appreciate this time to create the career of my dreams. I appreciate this time to heal. Thanks, Gabby!

  31. Thank you for the reminder!
    For some time I am working with a Mandala-Picture containing the words: I say “Yes” to my life and I take and appreciate every situation as it is.
    At first it was not easy to appreciate every situation, but now it is more common to think and feel like this .

  33. Hi Gabby,

    This is just what I needed to hear this morning. I recently got engaged and the wedding planning process has felt more overwhelming and stressful to me than exciting. I am trying to be positive and focus on the love around me and all the good that is in my life right now, but it’s been hard.

    I appreciate my fiance for all of his love and support throughout this time and I know this is just a small bump in the road.

    Thank you for your words, they are truly healing and came to me at the perfect time. Just another reminder that the Universe really does have my back 😉

    1. A beautiful reminder for all of us 😉 You’re doing great work. Big hugs and congrats to you. XOX

  34. having a difficult time with an unwanted divorce. i have become resentful and quite hateful of my soon to be ex. I have tried gratitude to change my energy level, but i feel like I am lying to myself. I of course want of change this situation, but the wounds seem to be just too deep. How to overcome this??

    1. Try turning the focus lovingly towards yourself. What feelings need to be fully felt? Let yourself know it’s safe to feel those feelings. When practicing the appreciation game, go very simple: what are some things that you appreciation about yourself, your surroundings, friends, etc. What is currently lighting you up? Remember to be gentle on yourself during this time and take it one day at a time. <3

  35. Thanks Gabby for this easy and light tool :).
    The list of what I appreciate is so long.. what a good sign. I also got to a feeling of rest and peace at the end of saying my list out loud.

    I’m going to try and use this more often.

    With all the love,

  36. I appreciate you, Gabby! I am learning about a Course in Miracles from you so much, and it is changing my life.
    I appreciate my family; I appreciate that my kids are old enough to play together on this super rainy day and I can read and hang out online and know that they are handling it.
    I appreciate my home; I appreciate being warm and dry.
    I appreciate my dogs; they are so cute and so cuddly!
    I appreciate the new opportunities that have recently been placed before me and the possibility of moving forward in a new direction with my career.

  37. Hey Gabby, thank YOU soooo much for speaking a couple days ago in MA. YOU are a miracle and I’ve been a follower since seeing you on Oprah in 2012. Your guided meditation CD is the best gift for everyone in this world. I’ve listened to it for years in the car and it’s changed my life. Love May Cause Miracles and the new book will arrive soon when it’s available. I was so inspired after seeing you and it gave me a renewed sense of energy & purpose and reaffirmed my motivation for continuing to be a light worker. I told many of my friends to sign up for your Monday newsletter. I love it. So happy you’ll be visiting Boston more. Please come back ASAP. There’s a lot of us in the Spirit Junkies Boston FB group that are huge fans of your work. Thank YOU for being such an inspiring, strong, bright light & leader <3

  38. About a month ago I was meditating and I asked to let go of my hard, cynical exterior and to welcome vulnerability. Learning to show the person I am, and who I want to be, instead of closing her off. I had this little voice that said, “write.” And for the first time I didn’t respond with, “but I’m not a writer.” Instead I trusted the voice and made a website and I wrote. I started writing about the parts of me that I usually keep closed off, even from my own family. I knew I wanted to let that go.
    I feel so much appreciation for the trust I have learned from watching your videos.
    I wanted to step deeper into it so I bought your new book. I just finished the meditation from page 36 and as I was meditating I saw a screenshot of your website.
    I found this video and it made so much sense to me, I appreciate the journey I have started, I appreciate this process, and I appreciate the teaching. Thank you!

  39. I am a newly certified health coach who is floundering a bit to get going. I know I am smart, tough and capable. I love this as a way to regroup and focus on the positive. I absolutely love your latest book, videos etc. So I am appreciative for you Gabby! You are a bright shining light! I know as slow as I am going I will work it out and get myself up and running. You are an inspiration!

    1. I’m so glad this was helpful! Stay in the knowing of all of your strengths, and keep sharing your light! xo

  40. Gabby –
    Thank you so much for this – and all the other guidance that you have been giving me. I am currently going through a separation and am trying to shift from a contentious and anger-filled split, to one of celebration and gratitude for what we have had together. This can be difficult when someone has hurt you deeply. Today I am choosing to shift: instead of focusing on the hurt that has been caused, I will be mindful of why I am authentically grateful and I will use this to guide me away from negative vibrations and back to love. And even send my husband a soul-to-soul communication through this means.
    -I am grateful for you and the experiences we have had together
    -I am beyond grateful for the two amazing children you allowed me to fight for to bring into this world through ivf
    -I am grateful that we have been able to purchase a second home around the corner from each other so that our children will have access to both of their parents
    -I am grateful that you have taught me that just because we can’t love each other how we should as partners, that doesn’t mean that we can’t love each other as friends
    -I am grateful for your financial support while I follow my dream of becoming an interior designer
    -I am grateful for the trip that we will take as a family to show our young children China and Singapore and spend time with your family in Australia
    -I am grateful that I gave this relationship my all and through hard times, I have shown myself that I am strong
    -I am grateful for ladybugs
    -I am grateful for the New Jersey Buddhist Vihara and Meditation Centre which the universe guided me to and where I go to feel the abundant positive energy in that space
    -I am grateful that I do believe in love, dreams and living an exceptional life
    -I am grateful that I can teach my children the power of humility, positivity and how we can all make a different with the smallest acts of kindness
    Thank you, Gabby. You don’t know it, but you are guiding me so much right now.

  43. Gabby I appreciate your book The Universe Has Your Back so SO much right now!!! It’s helping me with my transition back to American life after living abroad 18-months. I appreciate that I was born an American woman with so many rights that many women across the world today don’t have. I appreciate that I got to vote today. I appreciate all the freedoms we are so blessed with.

  44. Hey Gabby, I have been having dreams that I’m pretty sure have a spiritual meaning.

    The first I was in a world unlike anything I have ever see. There was white light coming from my hands and my hair turned blue and white (I’m brunette). I also grew way taller (I’m only 4’10).

    The second dream was a white rabbit. I was following up all throughout my dream.

    Both feel like a sign. Any ideas?

    1. Try keeping a dream journal. Since dreams and signs are so personal, the more you pay attention to them the deeper you will understand their meaning. xo!

  45. I appreciate YOU! Thank you for sharing this video and reminding us to appreciate ourselves and what we have vs. what we don’t have. This video just made my day that much better.

    Thank YOU!

  46. Love this game. have been using this in my relation from past few years now sure how it came to life..but listening to you now reminded of this moment we started practicing it more and have found we tend to fight less and showing more compassion to each other. Love it and highly recommend it. Thank you for sharing it to all of us.

  47. I appreciate your chapter on judgement in The Univers has your Back – excellent and just what I needed when I read it this morning. Thank you x

I appreciate everything, the gift of life, my parents and school teachers for guiding me along the path of education to learn how to grow whole, my family for providing a home to live and relate, you and other spiritual teachers for the encouragement to believe in the universe……….and many more!

  57. Thanks gab… seriously needed this right now. on my current journey I was feeling extremely judgemental and insecure about my video product. No its not perfect but I entirely appreciate my talents , skill set, experience , businesses I have built from the ground up and what I have to teach offer and pass on to others.

  61. Gabby, I am grateful for: you, autumn hikes in New England, my beautiful family, close girlfriends, and avocado toast!

  62. Hi Gabby,

    I am greatful that today I am taking time to take care of myself and I have a very loving husband that is so supportive of my making time for me. I would like to thank you also. I feel that you have givin me the tools for me to make me important. So thank you.

  63. I appreciate flushing toilets. Anyone who has hiked in the wilderness probably understands how wonderful flushing toilets are. Love and blessings to you all

  64. I’m so grateful for these lovely autumn days, the crisp air and the sight of the leaves on the ground. It signals to me that it’s time to go inward. I love it that nature knows exactly what to do and if i listen, i know what to do as well.

  65. I have a notepad with a magnet on the back of it that I stick on the fridge. I list 4 things I’m grateful for every day. Today it reads: 1. songbird alarm clock setting 2. crumpets 3. Elliott’s smile 4. furry friends (So blessed!)

  66. I appreciate the amount of spiritual growth I have experienced this year, by facing and feeling the fear based feelings I have forced myself to shove down and away for so long. I feel the shift in my energy and my relationships. Still miles to go, but every day, it’s getting better.

    1. small, every day shifts will lead to major change over time! keep practicing love and you will see so many miracles! xo

  67. Finding YOU! I watched your talk with Lewis Howes a couple of weeks ago, I have since bought your audio and paperback book “the universe has your back” and miracle cards…my hubby and I have both been listening to your audio and our spirits are awakened! Bel xox

  68. I appreciate this in my INBOX today!
    I appreciate the wisdom of my high vibe teachers.
    I appreciate the sunshine today.
    I appreciate the tea in front of me.
    I appreciate my computer, electricity, the internet and modern life.
    I appreciate my body for carrying me through this day.

    Thanks, Gabby! Lovin’ it! WOO!

    Thank You for always shining a bright light on my path.
    Peace be with You:)

  70. I appreciate the love in my life from friends & family.
    I appreciate my husband & daughter
    I appreciate my home and the clothes on my body & shoes on my feet

  71. Gabrielle thank you for this video and the reminder of how important it is to appreciate all we have and the people in our lives. I appreciate continued your wisdom especially your new book “The Universe Has Your Back which is helping me re connect with myself and the universe. Do I guess I’m appreciating me as well Blessing

  72. Gabby. I appreciate many things in my life but right now I really appreciate you sending us these wisdom nuggets every week. Thanks for your light and your energy, for your vibe and your teachings. The appreciation game is my morning prayer, saying thank you fills your soul with happiness. I appreciate having this community. Peace and Lots of Love, Laura

  73. I appreciate your book, The Universe Has Your Back. It was my FIRST introduction to your work and it randomly appeared to me online. My inner voice said “Buy it” so I did and I haven’t been the same since.

    I appreciate so much in my life, but my biggest appreciation is this journey to find my connection to the universe. Every day it grows and every day I feel more and more blessed. I cannot wait to see where else it takes me!

    Thank you for all you do!

  74. Today, I woke up with a lot of pain in my left hip. It has been 5 weeks now since I broke my hip. This morning I said to myself, with some doubt, “Will this pain ever go away. Will I get better again?”
    I felt a little sad today. So I quickly changed my thinking and thought of all of the good things and people in my life, and how I am so grateful. It is amazing how quickly those negative thoughts vanished.
    This afternoon I read your email about playing the Appreciation Game. It is so affirming that other people feel the same way and that they can benefit from refocusing on the positive.
    Thank you, Gabby.

  75. You are always helpful Gabby and getting better and better. I have been practive your five steps to the presence of joy and appreciation is one of them. Namaste dear one. says:

    Your videos are always helpful Gabby! They get better and better. I have been practicing your five steps to the presence of joy… and appreciation is one of them. You may never know how much you have helped me, but I send you deep gratitude and heartfelt appreciation. Love, Marian

  76. I’m grateful that I took the time to read your book: The Universe has Your Back slowly. It gave me the time to absorb all of your teachings, and I look forward to passing them on to my clients!

  77. I want to try this with my 11 year old daughter when she gets into her negative thinking-spiral. She is struggling with a skill in her gymnastics routine and although I also did gymnastics as a child and can relate to what she’s feeling, none of my ‘helpful suggestions’ are working. I know she will resist initially, but I’m hoping this can pull her out when she gets in that dark place.

    1. I really appreciate your new book Gabby, ‘The Universe Has Your Back’ and the free videos that you gave me when I bought your book. More and more I am coming to appreciate that the Cosmos/Universe is a friendly place and that Love is at the centre of all that is. Once you let go and let God/Love/The Universe take control of your life then everything becomes connected and life becomes fun. I am enjoying taking my hands off the steering wheel and letting love control all. Thank you so much for your work and yes, I am able to play the appreciation game every day. Sending love and light across the water and wishing good things for the USA from little old England!! Philip Young xxxx

        1. Thanks Gabby. I appreciate your reply. Love is the biggest and most splendid of creative forces in the universe. I have written 16 love poems each of 12 lines called ‘Letters from Love’. I would love you to see them as I think you would love them. With big love. Philip.

  78. This is a great game! I appreciate that I was introduced to you thru a friend, I appreciate the time I was able to spend with my friends and family this weekend, I appreciate the relationships I have with my parents and my sister, I appreciate the wonderful food that was shared with family, I appreciate the time I set aside for prayer and meditation, I appreciate the life I am living, I appreciate the love that is given to me by myself and others daily.

  79. I appreciate my loving husband who hugs me close in the morning before we get our days started. I appreciate my parents who help me figure out all of the ins and outs of adult life. I appreciate my acupuncturist who encourages me to nourish and love myself and give me herbs to help support my health. I appreciate my best friend who reaches out to me when I am struggling and shares her struggles with me. I appreciate my life coach who has literally been where I have and is teaching me the way to higher love and light. I appreciate the sweater I am wearing. I appreciate having a computer that is stylish, and functional. I appreciate my indigo yoga pant, cuz they are comfy and I love blue. I appreciate having a thermos so I can bring soup with me to school and it will still be hot when I eat it. I appreciate this reminder to step back and say thank you.

  80. There’s many people in my life that I appreciate as well as those that are no longer a part of it. I’ve learned so much about myself through experiences with all of them. I appreciate the fact that I get to get up every morning and go to work and that I’m capable to do it.
    I’ve also learned to appreciate my bills, I used to dread them and feel stressed but without them I wouldn’t have some of the conveniences of life that so many live without.
    I could go on and on but I also want to say I appreciate you and the road you bring me down by opening up and taking my thoughts to another level. I look forward to the day when I meet you!

  81. Thank you Gabby! I needed this. I’ve been experiencing some difficult times, although I do feel gratitude every day. It can be tough to see the light at the end of the tunnel when what you see in front of you is financial hardship and what is behind you is a life of abuse. What helped me the most with this game was the addition of new thoughts. I seem to always be able to find something in my life to be grateful for but don’t always follow it with the thought pattern you suggested. I decided to write everything down. I sometimes feel like there is more power in that process for me. Thank you, you are a blessing and an inspiration.

  82. What is up Gabster!?

    I am grateful for everything in my life! I’m grateful for you and all light workers who spread the love! I have been on such an amazing journey and so excited for what is to come. Sure there have been a few lows, but the highs are amazing! And this really is such a great way to bring you back to those highs! Staying tuned in feels great, and only gets better!

    Specifically I appreciate the universe putting you in front of me, who put IIN in front of me, which put a new laptop in front of me(which I had asked the universe for before the IIN email and joining!!!), and a way to follow one of my many dreams! This dream being to help people learn to love cooking healthy delicious meals for themselves and investing in their well being!! Just blessings on blessings and I appreciate the fudge out of it!!

    Thank you and appreciate all! 🙂 Sat Nam!!


  83. Just arrived home from working feeling rather low and your email arrived, it has helped me lighten my mood immediately. Thank you Gabby xx

  84. I love this tool! I used this when my step daughter was going through her teenage years. It saved us! She thought i was crazy, but it worked!
    Thanks for the reminder!

  85. Thank you Gabby

    This just totally reinforces that: you start to see what you believe. Speak your truths Even when it’s difficult … Great tool to use with a loved one

    Thank you

    P.s. I’m so very grateful and appreciative for my mothers prayers ❤️

  86. I appreciate you, Gabby, and watching this video at this time. I appreciate your calm demeanor and approach, it’s so unlike my own frenetic personality. And, yes, I appreciate my own style and personality! I appreciate the morning and the sunshine and the opportunity to start over every single day. I appreciate my tribe of friends who keep each other in a higher vibration. Thanks, Gabby!

  87. Hey Gabby. Love this week’s message. I am also so appreciative of my supportive friends who rallied around me during a difficult time. Their love and support carries me everyday. But today, I am appreciative of being able to spend the day yesterday watching the NYC Marathon and feeling all the good will and energy around me. You should see it lifting up the runners. What an amazing experience, especially during these days. I appreciate that teachers like yourself, and others, have helped me focus more on the present and moments like that that carry you through the day.

    Making my way through your new book now and getting so many great tips. Thanks, Gabby.

  88. I appreciate and am grateful for my health. I am so privileged to be alive and appreciate every breath I am able to take with ease and with comfort. I am grateful for my ability to walk, to speak, to see and to hear.

    Thank you, Gabby. I am so grateful that this video arrived at such a needed time today.

  89. I appreciate that Mondays are the hardest days and that these videos make me grateful and willing to see the positive:
    My family, my doctors monitoring some issues,
    my latest trip to see an elderly relative, the gorgeous Fall weather. And most of all, a higher power who keeps a watch and delivers blessings. Thanks for all your work, Gabby.

  90. Thanks Gabby! Gratitude and appreciation can be fuel to start the day! 🙂

    I did white tantric in LA over the weekend, and a lot of new layers of the onion surfaced. Yesterday was a bit tough, emotionally and mentally, and today Im still a little emotionally hung over. But like you said, focusing on the little, everyday things that we can so easily take for granted can go a long way… 🙂 (also made some Yogi tea – never hurts 🙂
    Thanks 🙂
