This week’s Ultimate Transformation Moment concentrates on appreciation.

As a community, I’d like us to understand that appreciation is a major component for any individual to start feeling the positive vacuum of the infinite, of God’s blessing flowing within you.

When you stay in a mindset of appreciation, it helps you stay in the moment. The definition of appreciation, or giving thanks, is the recognition of the quality, value, significance or magnitude of people and things around you. When you stay in a mindset of appreciation, you stay in the moment and begin to recognize the value and quality of that which you do possess.

We have a tendency to think about the things that we don’t have. However, let’s refocus and begin to give appreciation for those great and strong people who are in your life; the ability to get up in the morning and do for yourself; for not only good health, but health which allows you to execute whatever dreams or ideas you may have.

When you give appreciation, you stay in the moment, and realize there’s a value there. You are valuable in that moment. When you begin to feel good in that moment, this good feeling is the primary component to the manifestation of your desires and goals.

The mystery schools of Africa taught that what you feel, you attract and out of the good feeling, what you imagine, you become. So, here’s one of the best formulas for us to work on in order to reap the benefits of what we desire and what we contemplate most.

Everyday, let’s get up and give thanks and show appreciation for the opportunity that we have to be able to go out and execute our day. Show appreciation for those things that you already have and the things that you can do. Give thanks for your children, your parents, your siblings and your community.

When you are thankful, you find yourself in a state of good feeling. Then, while you are in that state of good feeling, that’s the time to use your incredible infinite thought to imagine and dream.

See things differently, and focus on having all your desires manifest. The good feeling of appreciation helps create an incredible positive energy that desires are easily realized.

Now you have created the mindset to become what you desire most.

I’d like for us to take this moment in time to use appreciation and giving thanks daily as a component of our everyday health and wellness program.

That’s our Ultimate Transformations Moment. Peace and be more.
