Meditate on Gratitude with Carolyn Anne Budgell

Meditate on Gratitude with Carolyn Anne Budgell

Gratitude is an attitude that can be cultivated not only around Thanksgiving for blessings in our lives, but during each moment of life — towards ourselves! Our brains are programmed to protect and to survive, and when we live a life out in the world it is nearly impossible to avoid feelings of self-judgment or unworthiness. Below is a simple guided meditation to reconnect to self-acceptance and the concept that we all have goodness within. The practice of inviting in new worthy aspects of ourselves through inner mantra will instil more confidence and openness. We will feel more at ease and grateful for all the challenges and support that people bring into our lives. Gratitude begins within and it's never too late to start!

Massage Therapy is an easy and feel good modality that helps treat soft tissue trauma in our body. This can be as microscopic as an adhesion in our skeletal muscle tissue that is causing pain, referral pain or a headache, and as obvious as a muscle stuck in contracture that causes what we refer to as a knot that seems to roll under your touch. We put our bodies through a lot, and physical stress like working out or even the physical stress from our jobs (whether it’s sitting all day or moving), as well as mental and emotional stress, can store itself in our bodies as tension.
