Before your mind wakes up completely every morning, create a blank canvas. Clear your mind starting the day with a gratitude meditation.
This guided meditation for a morning embrace of all the blessings that presently exist is a perfect way to begin any day. On some days, particularly those where it feels we’ve woken up on the ‘wrong side of the bed,’ gratitude and appreciation for a new day does not naturally move through us. On these days in particular, this guided meditation can help to inspire and uplift our spirits as we tune into the abundance and blessings that are present.
Gratitude Meditation with Affirmations
This meditation includes powerful affirmations that can help to set the course for the day ahead. Whatever we choose to bring to mind has the power to shape each thought and action that follows. So, as we use positive affirmations such as, “I am grateful for everything that I will experience today,” we set the stage for a more positive outlook of whatever unfolds before us. This helps to boost our experience of contentment and reduces our tendency towards stress, anxiety, and a sense of lack.
