Meditation on: Gratitude

 In this meditation we invite ourselves to connect to our gratitude. We observe all of the amazing gifts we have in our lives. We thank our powerful heart for this life. We thank our breath for its refreshing and grounding gift. With fascination and curiosity we observe the mind as it continues to flow and move from one thought to the next, from one worry to the next.. how interesting and beautiful this mind is.

 This practice of gratitude is a perfect way to move from our busy mind to our center. Gratitude is the state where we find freedom from worry. Where we find the space to connect to our loving nature. 

  December is a perfect time to introduce a practice of gratitude for this life. Opening our heart to a flood of joy and happiness, washing away worry. We bask in the warmth of love and connection that surround us at this very moment. A gentle smile appears on our face as we float in this amazing gift of live.


Lovingkindness Meditation Course - Week 2

 In week 1 we marveled at the beautiful calm state available to us when we allow ourselves to sit and mindfully breathe into our body. We noticed our busy minds constantly at work and how this is affected by the breath.

What a beautiful/ mysterious gift this mind is. 

 In week 2 we invite this important breath deep into our heart. Inviting our heart to open with the warming thoughts of those we love and care about. 

Join us on the amazing journey towards loving compassion and loving kindness :)

Week 2 Questions:

  1. When thinking about those we love, where in our bodies do we experience any sensations? How would you describe these sensations? Hot or cold? Fuzzy or soft? Describe these sensations in further description to better understand this emotion.
  2. How does the "I am" statement resonate with you? Do you notice a fondness to the loving we show to ourselves with I am affirmations? Perhaps we notice an aversion to the "I am" affirmation. In your next practice notice the subtle reactions our bodies have to "I am" affirmations - breathe into these reactions and observe like a curious scientist.
