Today’s gratitude meditation mini series will help you establish a daily practice of cultivating gratitude so you can amplify all the incredible things happening in your life right now.
Today begins part ONE of a three part gratitude meditation mini series. The intention is to help you establish a daily practice of cultivating gratitude so you can amplify all the incredible things happening in your life right now. Because when our attention focuses on what we’re grateful for – rather than what’s wrong – our energy shifts from fear to love, and attracts even more good into our lives. If you enjoy this series, I encourage you to continue a daily gratitude practice – whether it’s listening to one of the many other gratitude meditations here on the podcast and/or simply writing down 3 things you’re grateful for every day. I promise you, starting with gratitude changes everything.
Today’s gratitude meditation focuses on your body.
This beautiful, complicated machine that literally carries us around in this life that we can so easily take for granted.
Maybe you’ve had moments of ignoring her or even loathing her.
Perhaps you’ve celebrated her and treasured her.
No matter what your relationship with your body has been or currently is, the intention of today’s meditation is to give you the opportunity to pay homage to her and to soak in gratitude for the incredible and beautiful body you have.
So Let’s Begin…
GRATITUDE MEDITATION MINI SERIES – GRATITUDE FOR YOUR BODY MEDITATION SCRIPT
So let’s begin by closing your eyes if they’re not already,
And allow your attention to settle on your breathing.
This simple action your body does for you without you having to think about it.
This intake of oxygen that feeds your entire life.
Now expand your breath a little bit more,
Inhaling in deeper,
And exhaling out longer.
And notice as your body naturally slows down.
Your shoulders relax,
Your cheeks soften,
And your chest melts.
Your body is special. And so beautiful.
And today is your chance to pay homage to her.
So bring your attention to your feet,
Imagining warm, golden rays of sunshine lighting them up,
Feeling the tingling of attention reminding you of the gift of movement they give you.
Think of all the miles they’ve carried you and let the gratitude fill you up and lighten you.
And now, bring your attention to your legs,
Your calves, knees, quads and thighs,
And see all the images of their powerful strength moving you and balancing you,
And let the gratitude flood in.
Now bring your attention to the beautiful bundle of your sexual organs,
This magical garden that exudes the essence of your womanhood.
Pleasure and life can live here…can thrive here.
And even when they haven’t, this garden is here for you, working on your behalf.
Breathe in gratitude, and feel yourself grow lighter.
Now let your attention travel up to your stomach, your heart, your breasts and your chest.
Feel this entire area expand with each inhale as it reminds you of who you are.
All your major organs inside working just for you.
Feel the gratitude arise and expand with breath.
Now allow your attention to rise to your shoulders, arms, hands and fingers.
These tremendous parts that give you so much freedom to navigate your life,
To embrace, to hold, to carry and to give.
Breathe in deep gratitude and feel the warmth inside of you grow.
Now bring your attention to your neck, your face and your head.
Let them tingle with the warmth of attention as you are reminded of the smiles, the laughter and the tears.
Think about the tastes, smells and sights available to you and the enormous power of your brain that makes it all possible.
Flood yourself with the light of gratitude.
You are so blessed to be in this body.
It’s resilient, strong and absolutely gorgeous.
Feel the deep, golden glow of gratitude illuminating every single part of your body.
And let yourself breathe it all in.
