See if you can take an inventory of the things for which you’re grateful. This meditation samples 12 intentions of gratitude.



The things for which we have to be grateful are widespread. From lessons to people to the raw nature of the breath itself, we have much to be grateful for. This guided mindfulness meditation by Sean Fargo is an invitation to set intentions for living a full day with gratitude.

Through this meditation, we are guided to consider all the ways we can feel into our capacity for gratitude and how we might express it.

Setting an Intention of Gratitude

Simply by setting the intention to be grateful, we will likely begin to see shifts in our experience, or at the very least, in our perception of our experience. Gratitude fills us with a sense of lightness and love, aligning us with the heart center at the core of our being.

We can set multiple intentions of gratitude, but we can also begin with something simple:

I will welcome this day with my open and grateful heart.

A Simple Gratitude Exercise

At any moment in the day, we can tune into the heart center to explore our present level of awareness. In each moment, we can ask ourselves: what is within me that I have to be grateful for? What can I appreciate about the natural world around me? What lessons have I learned today that will fuel my growth?

Regardless of whether we perceive the day to be ‘good’ or ‘bad,’ we can expand our field of vision by opening to our experience with a compassionate heart.
