Welcome to this morning gratitude meditation.

One of the best ways to start your day on a positive note is to be grateful for all you have in your life right now.

Yes, you can aspire to have more.

And the best way to attract more love and money and good health and fun into your life is to fully appreciate what you have right now.

It’s the foundation upon which more good can flow into your life.

So let’s start this morning with an attitude of gratitude. Let’s set the tone for the day we are about to launch into.

So, whether you’re still in bed or whether you have already gotten up, put yourself in a comfortable position where you can truly focus on this short meditation.

Take a moment to stretch if you need to. Stretch your arms. Stretch your legs. Roll your head and your neck. Scrunch your shoulders.

Just wake up the mind and the body to prepare yourself for this day with a sense of gratitude.

Also take a couple of slow, deep breaths in … and out.

Another big one in … and out.

Take a moment to relax and listen to the music and just clear your mind.

There’ll be plenty of time to engage in thought and launch into your day and be consumed with the task at hand, but right now give yourself this little oasis of peace.

So, what are you truly thankful for?

What’s good in your life?

What are you truly grateful for?

Let’s start with aspects of you.

Are you grateful for your five senses? Your sense of sight and hearing, smell, taste, touch? And if you happen to be missing one of those, is there a gift in that?

Regardless of your situation or what is swirling in your life … Where is that silver lining?

What else are you grateful for?

What about the dwelling, the place that you’re in right now? Are you sitting on a couch, in the living room, are you still laying in bed?

If you’re out in a park in the fresh air, just be grateful for your surroundings and the environment that you’re in right now.

Are you safe and comfortable, relaxed? That’s a blessing that should be savored.

Think about the people in your life — your family members, your friends, your community, the groups that you’re involved in, activities that you participate in.

Just think of a handful of people that you’re truly grateful are in your life.

What do you appreciate about them?

And maybe how do the things that they do that drive you crazy, how do they truly benefit you?

What do you learn about yourself by being exposed to their personalities and their unique talents?

How about what you currently do for a livelihood? Do you have a job? Are you self-employed? Is there something that you do to generate income?

No matter how positively or negatively you feel about that activity, what’s the benefit? How is that serving you?

How can you be more and more thankful for that job, for that activity, for that vocation, and perhaps the income and the joy that it brings you, whatever amount that is?

Let’s also consider your own talents, your gifts, your personality.

What are those unique, specific, maybe even quirky aspects of you that you can embrace. Maybe not everyone embraces them, but can you embrace them?

What are you thankful for that is uniquely you?

What aspects of yourself do you truly love? What skills have you developed? What talents are you either interested in or have you displayed?

Think about those things right now with a true, deep sense of gratitude.

Soak that in for a minute and relax into your sense of thankfulness, appreciation, and gratitude.

This would be another good time to take a couple of deep breaths in and out, nice and slow, as you let that feeling of gratitude wash over you.

Are you not truly blessed right now in this moment? Breathe it in.

Any final thoughts about what you have to be grateful for?

What have you missed?

What have you overlooked?

What’s something or someone that maybe you haven’t thought of in a while, but you can also be grateful for?

No matter what thoughts might cross your mind when you look in the mirror, I know to my core that you are a unique individual.

No one else like you has ever existed on the planet, exists to this day, or will ever exist on the planet just like you.

No one has your unique qualities, your individual experiences.

No one brings to the table the unique gifts and capacities that you do.

I encourage you, be grateful for who you are right now in this moment.

Life has brought you to this point in your life and it is good.

Is it not?

Can you feel the good? Can you sense the good in your life, emanating from within you and radiating out?

Feel that. Sense that. Know that right now.

Mmm, feels good, doesn’t it? I knew it would.

Take another couple of deep breaths here as we head into the stretch of this short meditation.

Breathe in … and out … in … and out.

Return to this recording any time you need a boost of gratitude. Any time you need to remind yourself of the multitude of things in your life that you have to be thankful for.

And this feeling that you have right now, this feeling of gratitude … You can take this with you and let it be your companion throughout your day — this unique, one of a kind day.

I know it’s gonna be fruitful. I know it’s gonna be amazing. It’s gonna be incredibly productive and enjoyable, because you took the time to focus on you and all the gifts and the blessings that you have in your life right now.

Go forth and have an awesome day.
