We often take the heart for granted without noticing all of the work it does for us. Connect with your heart, do the heart-centered gratitude meditation.

The heart is the center of our four major chakras, the subtle energy points that exist within the body. This heart-centered gratitude meditation draws our awareness to this energetic center of our being, helping us to reconnect with what it means to breathe and live from the heart space.

The Heart Chakra

The heart chakra holds our capacity to love and be loved – unconditionally. It is the space from which we give and receive our highest capacity of love, kindness, and compassion, and as such, it is what connects us deeply to all other beings. As we draw our attention to it in this guided meditation, we expand and enliven it in a way that we are not usually accustomed to doing.

 As you move through this meditation, notice what arises with compassion and non-judgment. If challenging feelings or emotions arise, practice loving these uprisings exactly as they are, tuning mindfully and compassionately into your raw and true experience.

Heart-Centered Gratitude

When the heart is open, we find ourselves more naturally inclined towards gratitude and generosity. Rather than from fear, we operate from a place of love and abundance. Depending on who we are and where we have come from, this opening of the heart can take time. If the work feels challenging, consider starting with beginner meditations and expanding from there.
