A Guided Meditation with therapeutic harpist,Tami Briggs and Glenda Cedarleaf, clinical hypnotherapist on the practice of gratitude and how it transforms the present moment.
Here is the script:
"What we appreciate increases in our lives.
Gratitude connects us with our hearts."
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more It turns denial into acceptance chaos to order, confusion to clarity.
It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend."
“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives as parallel realities.
the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on Earth.”
–Sarah Ban Breathnach
I give thanks for the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows that are all a part of being a human and living in this body.
I give thanks for the opportunity to live one more day.
I am thankful for the beauty of the sun rising over the glistening ocean
I am grateful for the sound of the waves and the smell of the salt water...
I give thanks for the lapping of the water as it gently rocks me back and forth...
Mother nature herself, cradling me as I float.
I am thankful for the stars and the Northern Lights traveling across the heavens to sparkle and delight my
night time gazing...and the moon silently reminding us of our inter-connection on this earth.
I give thanks for the deep stillness of a snow frosted North Woods—silent, white, beauty bright
I feel Grateful for my soft cozy socks and a mug of creamy hot Chai…and a crackling glowing fire on a cold wet day.
I am grateful for the Angels who appeared in my life when I was stuck, ill, fearful, confused.
I give thanks for the sun when it’s light filters though the branches of the trees.
And shines it’s warmth over me. I am grateful for the gentle warm rain that blesses my body with fresh sweet air.
The serenade of birds, or lullabye of crickets and cicadas on a warm humid summer night.
I am grateful to gaze into the soul of a loved one's eyes and experience the bliss of deep connection..
“There is something about the mental act of thanksgiving that seems to carry the human mind far beyond the region of doubt into the clear atmosphere of faith and trust, where all things are possible.”
–H. Emilie Cady
I rest now in the arms of the beloved the one who remembers who I truly am.
The one who calls me home to receive this gift of Gratitude.
