Daily Gratitude Meditation

Open Up a Spiritual Dimension Through Gratitude

In this guided meditation, Anne guides listeners through a practice designed to help cultivate a sense of gratitude into our daily lives. 

The session begins with a grounding practice, encouraging listeners to find a comfortable position, close their eyes, and settle into the sensations of their body. By focusing on the breath and observing its qualities, Anne helps listeners connect with their nervous system, promoting a sense of calm and awareness in the present moment. 

The meditation progresses to heart-centred practices, where listeners are invited to visualise someone they feel grateful for and immerse themselves in the feelings of love and connection associated with that person. This is followed by reflecting on present-moment gratitude, recognising and appreciating even the mundane aspects of life that bring joy and support. The practice concludes with loving-kindness wishes, fostering a sense of well-being, peace, and self-love.

The episode is beautifully encapsulated by Eckhart Tolle’s quote: “It is through gratitude for the present moment that the spiritual dimension of life opens up.” 

Anne wraps up the meditation with encouragement to listeners to carry the feelings of gratitude throughout their day.

This meditation is intended to be listened to daily, bringing forth gratitude into every day.

May you carry the feeling of gratitude throughout your day.
