There is nothing more productive for any of you than to get on a rampage of appreciation relative to any subject of your desire – because you cannot be in the state of appreciation and at the same time hold yourself vibrationally apart from something you desire. They are two opposite vibrations. You cannot appreciate the idea of a relationship and hold yourself apart from one at the same time. You can't appreciate the idea of a healthy body, whether it is yours or someone else's, and hold yourself apart from it at the same time.
When you are in the vibration of appreciation, you are in the vibration of allowing. Whatever it is you are appreciating, you are allowing – with that much more emphasis – in the now. In other words, it speeds the process.
If we were wanting to reach for joyful experience, or the experience of connection, we would superimpose the word "appreciation," because it is a purer vibration for most. When you say, "I want that" or "I have to have that," sometimes it can get messy. But when you say, "I surely do appreciate that," there is very little contradictory vibration within you. And you are much more likely to then use that as your excuse to allow what you've been telling the Universe all along, with your yippees and yahoos, that you are wanting.
You want appreciation. Even though you like what's happening now doesn't mean that you still don't want appreciation or greater stimulation. It just means you're not using something in your now as your excuse to not let in all those things that you've been wanting.
The perfect creative stance is, "Satisfaction where I am, and eagerness for more!"
