Gratitude Meditation

In this meditation we use Gratitude as a tool to help us better manage stress. Feelings of thankfulness have tremendous positive value in helping us cope with daily problems, especially stress.

When we are in pain and are suffering, it is important to find what gives us joy and pleasure, to seek out the positive in life.

Before You Begin

Be sure that you are wearing comfortable clothing, are in a quiet room where the temperature is cozy.

Sit or lie in a comfortable chair, couch, or bed. Wherever you are most comfortable.

In This Moment Right Now

Take in the experience of this present moment in its fullness. Let gratitude flow. Allow it to well up from your heart and sense the healing feel of it. Turn on the faucet of gratefulness.

A Simple Challenge

As you progress through your day, try this simple challenge: Try to notice what draws your awareness out of a moment of joy. It is these impulses and thoughts that are key to understanding the stressors in your life.

By identifying these impulses and thoughts you can practice minimizing their impact and extend the joy and pleasures in your life.

Pocket

Learn the simple Quick Coherence technique by HeartMath, that brings your heart and your brain into a more aligned state at the physiological level. A three step process to open up the brain so that we begin to experience more of a flow of these type of positive emotional states that we want more of in our life.

Heartmath’s Quick Coherence Technique Transcript:

We will share a very simple technique called a quick coherence technique. It’s the simplest of all HeartMath techniques but it’s very fundamental to many of the other techniques we teach. It’s something we can do anytime anywhere. You can do it with your eyes closed, you can do it with your eyes open.

What's standing between you and success?
What it does is it brings your heart and your brain into a more aligned state at the physiological level. Heartmath is known for its science and measure these changes and it synchronizes heart and brain at at physiological level. Then what it does, is it begins to open up the brain so that we begin to experience more of a flow of these type of positive emotional states that we want more of in our life.

It is something we can do very quickly so if you’d like in our in our program today I will be glad to share this with everyone who is listening.

With your eyes open if you want to or eyes closed if you’re in a place where that’s appropriate.

It’s a three-step process:

1. Step one is called “Heart Focus”

What I’d like you to do is to shift your attention from up in your head down into the area in the center of your chest, the area of the heart. Sometimes it’s helpful just to feel like you’re taking an elevator down. All over the thoughts and things that are happening there just to stand down and focus your attention in the area in the center of your chest the area of your heart, maintain your focus there.

2. Step two is call “Heart Focused at Breathing”

Breathe naturally, but a little deeper than you normally would. As you breathe, pretend as if the breath is flowing in and out through the center of your chest, the area where you have your focus. We’ll do this for a few breaths inhale press coming in through the heart exhale back out through the area of the heart.

3. The third step is called “Heart Feeling”

Maintain your heart focus and continue doing that hard focus breathing. Now I’d like you to activate a positive emotion. Perhaps your remember a time when you felt good inside. Some things that are helpful or maybe to feel appreciation for the good things in your life, things that you have that you really can appreciate. Well maybe you can feel some of the love or care you have for someone or something in your life. Or maybe a feeling of compassion for others, there’s a type of positive emotions. Without straining, do your heart focus breathing and just feel heart related emotion like that. Breathe it in and out through the area in the center of your chest.

It’s that simple.

I have been where I was ungrateful and you literally feel the energy being sapped from you. But once you find one thing to be Grateful for, all of a sudden you get the energy to do things.

I am from Flint Michigan, I am a static that didn’t go by the statistics because, a lot of my friends are in jail, a lot of my friends have died, a lot of my friends are no longer here.
