A dictionary of terms as they are used and redefined by Elias



According to Elias appreciation is a powerful tool to break patterns of discounting and opposition. It is the most powerful expression which we can generate. It is linked to acceptance.

Session #1799:

ELIAS: Yes. I may express to you, appreciation generates one of the MOST POWERFUL expressions of energy that you can generate. It may be rivaled merely by an intensity of fear, an extreme of fear. But as many of you may be aware within your experiences, fear can be a POWERFUL expression of energy and it can create powerful expressions and destructive expressions, and can be expressed to such an extreme that you can even generate a physical manifestation of it. You can configure energy of fear into an actual physical being. That is how powerful that energy expression is. But appreciation is more powerful than fear.

Session #1167:

ELIAS: Appreciation is ultimate acceptance. It is a recognition of the value of whatever you move your attention to in relation to appreciation, the genuine expression of knowing its value without fear, without resistance, in resignation to it. It is beyond thankfulness. The appreciation may not be expressed without the knowing.

Session #1861:

ELIAS: Correct, and also as I have expressed previously, the definition of love is not associated with emotion. Love is a genuine expression of knowing and appreciation. You attach affection to love and many times you equate or define affection as love, but that is not a genuine expression of love. Love is genuinely a knowing and appreciation.

ELLA: The difference between appreciation and affection is that affection is unique about a person and appreciation is allowance?

ELIAS: No. Affection is a genuine expression. It is an emotional expression. Affection is a signal, a feeling, that is associated with an emotional communication. Affection is associated with attraction, and in that, it is also associated with preferences. It is a feeling with an emotional communication. Appreciation is not an emotional communication.

ELLA: If I appreciate you, donít I feel good about you? That is an emotion.

ELIAS: You attach the affection with the appreciation and therefore you feel.

Another perspective:

Appreciaton is one of the really BIG words in Abraham's teachings. Abraham uses the term very similar to Elias' and it fits perfectly to Elias' concept.

The #1 process of Abraham's tools in their book Ask and it is Given is about appreciatin in order to change the perception and thusly projected energy.

The Rampage of Appreciation:

ABRAHAM: Begin by looking around your immediate enviroment and gently noticing something that pleases you. Try to hold your attention on this pleasing object as you consider how wonderful, beautiful, or useful it is. And as you focus upon it longer, your positive feelings about it will increase.

Now notice your improved feelings, and be appreciative of the way you feel. Then, once your good feeling is noticably stronger than when you began, look around your enviroment and choose another pleasing object for your positive attention. Ö Because the vibration of appreciation is the most powerful connection between the physical you and the Non-Physical You, this procerss will also put you in a posituion to receive even clearer guidance from your inner Being.

The more you practice appreciation, the less resistance you will have in your own vibrantional frequencies. And the less resistance you have, the better your life will be.
