The Ripple Effect of Appreciation
I recently received a lovely thank you note from one of my oldest students. I felt such pleasure and delight that I started thinking about appreciation, what happens when we open ourselves to the blessings of appreciation, whether being the giver or being the recipient.
It meant so much to me that she took the time to get in touch, share her heartfelt feelings and let me know all the good that had come from the wisdom I was able to share with her over 30 years ago. I had encouraged her on the path she ultimately chose to follow, and now she is teaching others to appreciate and use spiritual/psychic qualities within themselves, too.
I am thrilled to know that the tools I was able to give her still serve and guide her on her own spiritual path. “Just the process of learning about our own psychic gifts can lead to self-healing,” she wrote. Like me, she feels blessed to have been able to help others learn about these gifts, especially now, when there are so many souls in need of this help.
Often, for us to feel appreciated, we really just need to know that the wisdom shared has had impact in others’ lives. I am particularly attuned to and resonate with the psychic ability of others through my God-given ability and many years of practice, so it was obvious to me that this young woman was a treasure right from our first encounter—and I was right! What a treat for me to be nourished recently by feelings of joy and of overwhelming gratitude to God and appreciation all these years later, when she shared her deeply-felt appreciation of the effect I had on her life and took the time to let me know.
The impact I made in her life was always remembered, and like a meteorite splashing into still waters, rippled out, and spread in waves from the point of contact back to me.
Philosophers and sages have always known that it is appreciation. A class in art or music appreciation, or walking with an enthusiast or an expert or a guidebook can sometimes help us look, listen, smell or feel more carefully, opening us up to the richness around us. It only takes a bit of practice to see all the exuberant gifts that God/Goddess/Spirit has strewn on our paths like so much treasure, and to become connoisseurs—appreciators—of the world around us. What delight will you open yourself to today? Will the tawny rippling grass at the side of the highway in the early morning feed your soul, or will it be the delicate streaks of clouds in the evening sky? The glory of a full moon between the trees or the blur of paws as a puppy scampers across the floor? Even the smile from another as they pass you by,
In accounting, the “appreciation” of an asset means an increase in its value. And when we pause to appreciate the quality, value, significance, or magnitude of the people we encounter, the world pays us back many times over for our attention. Mother Teresa said, “There is more hunger for love and appreciation in this world than for bread.” Appreciation is really a gift to ourselves as much as it is a gift to others, and is just the act of seeing. Who in your life is just waiting to be seen, hoping to be appreciated?
Our appreciation of other people can nourish them—and ourselves—in ways we might not even be able to foresee. Albert Schweitzer wrote, “At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us. ”Everybody loves to be seen for who they are and be appreciated. Sometimes it’s the only spark they need. And with appreciation, what goes around REALLY comes around!
- I open myself to and appreciate the manifestations of Spirit I see in the universe.
- I give myself permission to be happy, healthy, prosperous, loving, and satisfied in the now.
- I am open to seeing patterns of God/Goddess/Spirit’s miraculous love, and see/feel the universe’s appreciation in my understanding.
- Appreciation is a gift I choose to experience and share abundantly, in preparation of and contribution to our new world.
