How To Do Morning Meditation For Gratitude
People in some spiritual traditions begin their days with a chant that expresses their deep gratitude for the blessings they've received. They may express gratitude to the divine, their parents, the earth, teachers, and anything else that allows their lives to continue to blossom.
The vibrations you send from your heart (which are essentially your feelings) have a stronger effect than the vibrations you send with your mind, according to scientists studying heart vibrations. As a result, we begin our day with this meditation by vibrating our intentions from the heart.
Morning Meditation For Gratitude
Look no further than the practice of gratitude for a dynamic and effective way to quickly improve your life and bring happiness, harmony, and success into it.
In today's fast-paced, technology-infused world, gratitude is a highly undervalued quality. Many of us don't have a lot of free time. We usually spend any free time we have attempting to catch our breath before plunging back into the chaos.
Gratitude is a practice that can have a profound and long-term impact on our happiness. The small amount of time it takes is well worth the effort, and regular practice can help gratitude become a habit that pervades your life.
Grateful Mantra Meditation
Gratitude meditations will help you remember the small blessings that you may overlook in your daily life.
1. To begin, find a relaxing position to rest in, such as a chair or a comfortable flat surface.
2. Take a moment to center yourself. Turn off the ringer on your phone to ensure you won’t be disturbed. If you’re able, close the door to the room you’re in.
3. Now, take a deep breath through your nose. Fill your lungs entirely with air. Let your breath out through your mouth.
4. This way, take a few more deep breaths. Air is inhaled through the nose and exhaled through the mouth.
5. We'll now repeat a gratitude mantra.
The mantra is: “I am grateful for…”
6. Isn't it pretty straightforward? Simply fill in the blanks with something for which you are grateful.
7. This mantra will be repeated ten times. Try to think of something different to be grateful for each time you repeat the mantra. Start small and concentrate on your immediate surroundings if you're having trouble coming up with ideas.
The Yin Yang Gratitude Practice
1. Take a few deep breaths and settle into a comfortable position.
2. Bring your attention to a problem you're having right now. With this practice, it's best to start small. Pick a minor irritant or annoyance that has been bothering you. For instance, maybe the room you're in is chilly and drafty.
3. Identify a negative situation you're currently dealing with, and then see if you can turn it around to find a positive outcome. Perhaps the room you're in is cold and drafty, but it has a large, lovely window that lets plenty of light in.
4. As you continue to identify aspects of your life that you are unhappy with, try to see how you can turn the situation into a positive opportunity. Maybe you have a long commute to work that stresses you out. On the bright side, your commute may provide you with the opportunity to listen to some great music, listen to a cool podcast, or even practice mindfulness on your way to work.
Finding the positive in the negative may be difficult at first, but it is a skill that will benefit you in many areas of your life.
Meditating daily has a powerful effect both on your health and what you create in your life. With this meditation, we are using our intentions together with the powerful energy of the heart to manifest what we want in the best possible way.
