One thing Ascala has taught me is the importance of showing appreciation. The problem is, very often we do not show appreciation. For example if we go to a store to buy food or if we go to the bank there are people there to give us service, who work hard every day. It is not about feeding their ego, it is simply about saying thank you. Appreciation can give so much support for others and it does not even take a minute to offer a thank you.
One thing I learned very quickly is how intelligent this spirit organisation is. It becomes apparent through the work they do in trying to help us, in whatever form they feel is necessary. When I work as a medium it always gives me a warm feeling to say thank you to my sprit friends. They also need to be acknowledged and not taken for granted.
There are times when I give sittings or receive feedback about my work. The feeling that comes with the appreciation, when someone says thank you, it charges my battery. It is certainly appreciated by me, but I do not accept it all the time. To be a service to spirit or mankind is not an easy task, it takes a lot of time and effort.
“Even when we are dissatisfied with something we can always sit back for a moment and remember that the person not giving us the service we ask for also is a person.
If I go into a shop and do not receive good service it does not always mean it is the person serving me that is in fault. I always try to say thank you anyway, and sometimes you can see that it has affected them, knowing that they are appreciated. But, within everyday life there are certainly times when I complain about some things, when I feel it is necessary.
To show appreciation is a way of respecting one another and acknowledging the hard work people do. But sometimes we as customers can expect too much. Tolerance and patience is necessary. I remember when I was learning the work as a medium and used to practice on people, many of them were very kind and encouraging even though I made mistakes. Even when we are dissatisfied with something we can always sit back for a moment and remember that the person not giving us the service we ask for also is a person.
It would appear today that we complain more than we appreciate. Very often when we want something we fail to see what we already have. That is a lack of appreciation, we just focus on what we do not have, but believe we should have. At times we take so much for granted.
However, by the same token, do we appreciate ourselves? Do we take care of ourselves? For me this is about living in the moment and be thankful for what we do have, then we will begin to see it with new eyes.
I also need to learn to appreciate even more
