Appreciation in Life and Art

Regrouping and Creating an Intended Attraction

In the last few days, I’ve struggled and felt very un-centered or “off” with my connection to what I’m doing or where I’m headed (short-term).  I had to take a break from the textile painting I’ve been working on because what I needed to do to bring it to closure just wasn’t coming to me intuitively, and trying to force it to conclusion through action only caused me to do some stitching work on it that I then had to turn around and remove because it just wasn’t right.

So I took a break from the piece, and also did a little self-reflection on why this disconnect was happening.  I came up with several reasons for my current state: 1) A few particularly tough challenges going on at the day job 2) Not enough sleep/rest 3) Too much self-imposed pressure to get too many things accomplished within a given timeframe (finishing this textile painting among them).  The resulting combination of all of this was that I had achieved a state of high stress, exhaustion, worry, and fear within me and it felt really yucky.


I’m a believer of Law Of Attraction (LOA) (LOA basic premise = you attract back to you those energies that you send outward from yourself) and I’ve recently become introduced to Abraham-Hicks’ teachings on LOA.

Today, I awoke in a different place, with a recognition of how I’ve been fighting so much resistance (at work and within myself) and realizing that in doing so, I had created a vibration within me that I really didn’t like, which was in turn attracting “yucky” energies back to me .

So I approached today in a different way, with intention of what I want my vibration to be and what I want to attract.  I looked for the positive things that were happening and acknowledged appreciation for those positive things, as well as the accomplishments that I’ve made (at my day job, with my  artwork, and in my personal development) and today things are different.  Some of the challenges seem not as big and it feels like the clouds are lifting and there is more cooperation (at work).  I also am not as tired and have a lot more good energy to focus on getting things I want to accomplish done.  This is good.

Today’s quote from Abraham-Hicks:

“Every time you say, “I appreciate that. I really like that. I applaud that. I acknowledge the value in that.” Every time you do that, you spend some of your Energy, and it is the spending of the Energy that creates a vacuum, so to speak, or an attraction, so to speak, that draws more and more and more and more.”

— Abraham

This quote describes pretty clearly how what I did intuitively earlier today, the thoughts and feeling that I focused on, which in turn produced my inner vibration, were key to changing how my day went today and achieving the more centered and happy place I’m in now.  By changing my inner vibration and focusing on what I DO want, I began to attract those same things back to me.

It’s helped to re-charge my battery, giving me renewed energy and focus to continue moving ahead with my plans and tasks.  I’m looking forward to getting back to work on finishing my Wall Drawing textile painting soon.

    Marg – Thanks! And you are right…tiny steps, a little at a time, forward progress, we just keep it moving in the right direction, ticking things off the list and eventually those steps lead to big accomplishments.
