Today we’re going to play the appreciation game! I learned this tool from Abraham/Hicks book, Ask and it is Given. I taught it recently and everyone loved it, so I knew I had to make a video about it.
This exercise is all about getting out of a negative attitude quickly. How do we shift a negative vibe within a relationship fast, and how do we elevate our energy in a quick, easy and fun way?
The simplest way to get out of a negative attitude is to focus on what you appreciate and redirect your focus onto what is working. Sometimes it just comes down to getting into the practice of speaking out loud, saying with your voice what you’re grateful for.
My husband and I do this in those times when we may be arguing over some silly thing — we reorganize it fast by going down the list of what we appreciate about one another:
“I appreciate the way you take care of me.”
“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.
You can play this game with anyone in your life. You can even do it alone, saying out loud or to yourself what you’re grateful for:
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, the fear-based story, a toxic situation with a partner or a friend.
Playing the appreciation game is a quick way to get out of a negative state.
And then, once you’re in the new vibration, that’s when you can start reaching for new thoughts that you feel really great about.
Yes, I can change this pattern.
Yes, I can feel better about this relationship.
Yes, I can move forward.
Appreciation is like a bridge back to a lighthearted way of being.
Now that you know this exercise, share below! What do you appreciate about yourself, the people in your life, and what’s going on in your circumstances?
