1. I am developing the skill to direct my thoughts...
2. Appreciation and Gratitude are different vibrational states...
Abundance Angel Message: Power of Prayer
Give this situation to God (Source) for uplifting and healing, and be open to miracles. Heaven's unlimited resources, love, and answers are awaiting your prayers. Be sure to act upon the Divine guidance God gives to you in response to your prayers.
OK so the first card is about understanding that rather then spending time dwelling on understanding what is going on, it benefits you more to stay mentally clear and focused on what it is that you want in the situation that is unfolding. It is a skill to be able to train your mind to quickly evaluate what is going on (or not going on) and then quickly come to a conclusion of what you most want.
The second card is point blank saying that gratitude carries a hint of struggle in the frequency. Aim for appreciation. Being able to appreciate something for what it is and leave it at that is an energy that can shift you to a more Source filled frequency. I recently heard a person say that she could appreciate pettiness when it was done in the right way. I had to agree with her.
When I put these two cards together I see Abraham telling us to flow with the energy of appreciation. If we apply this to the angel card we have a message of "say prayers or appreciation rather then prayers of worry."
Have fun with this,
