Through difficult experiences, life sometimes becomes more meaningful.
Happy Hump Day!
It is the middle of the week.
What are you grateful for?
By using this ten-minute guided meditation for giving thanks, it will tune you into breathing and give you time for gratitude and appreciation.
Calm and relax your mind, be thankful for your body and everything good in your life.
The end of this meditation for gratitude will awaken you to your full reality, feeling calm, relaxed, with a full and thankful heart. Use this gratitude meditation daily for power benefits.
Last week we had started blogging on how to nourish your soul.
Dan and I posted some ways which were practicing mindfulness, eating clean, moving your body, getting out into nature, laughing, detoxing from technology, and practicing acts of kindness.
Are you ready for another!
How about listening to relaxing music?
This can go hand in hand with gratitude meditation.
Music is another way that we can connect with something beyond ourselves.
It can ease pain, reduce stress, and lift your mood.
But of course, when we want to nourish our soul, the goal is not to find something rhythmic or too heavy.
Ambient music, new age artists, or perhaps classical instrumental music would be a good choice.
These more relaxing genres of music will stimulate your imagination and relax your breathing, making your heart more open and ready to spiritually connect with others.
As Dan and I have been sharing and continuing the book from last week, Ten-Minute Relaxation, For Mind and Body by Jennie Harding, until the end.
Whenever you are feeling under pressure, ten minutes is all you need to relax totally, using tools that are always with you; your senses.
This book is packed full of wonderfully simple ideas and exercises for using sight, taste, smell, hearing, and touch and that vital sixth sense of intuition to rebalance your energies and bring you back into harmony with the natural world around you.
Identify your favorite sensory relaxation solutions and combat that stress!
Per Dan and my experience this is another component in keeping ourselves healthy, meditation.
By using your five senses, you can learn to relax in just ten minutes.
CHAPTER 3; INTUITION/SIX SENSE
FUN WITH PAINT-COLOR SWIRLS/TEN-MINUTE EXERCISE
Are you ready!
Listen to the music you have put on.
Let the sounds and rhythms fill you.
Put a color that appeals to you onto the brush and let it travel across the paper in a swirling path.
Maybe a wave pattern or a curling or spiraling effect.
Clean the brush and take a different color.
Maybe a contrast or something that attracts you and repeat the same swirling movements.
Change color again a third time and watch how curving patterns are covering the page.
Do the colors meet?
Do they run into each other?
How do you like the shapes?
Keep going until you feel you have enough color on the page.
Tomorrow, FUN WITH PAINT-COLOR SHAPES
As Dan and I start a new year; we will be posting daily 365 morning meditations for joyful days all year long.
The book is SUNRISE GRATITUDE by Emily Silva.
BE DILIGENT IN THE PURSUIT OF your dreams.
If you find yourself feeling disgruntled at the work involved, think about the honeybee and how it works hard for a sweet reward.
Changing your perspective on work can create different results in your mind and body.
Some tasks are inevitable and necessary to get to the next level.
See that you are part of a bigger picture and that your reward is on its way.
PHRASE TO REMEMBER; Health is Wealth.
We stand by this and continue to do daily; walk, meditation, and Qigong.
If you would like to follow with us; hash tag words #walk, #meditation #Qigong on the right of the main blog page.
Until Thursday, think about others and your own problem appears insignificant;
think only of oneself and even a small problem appears unbearable.
