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!

Throughout this meditation, we let go and start to cultivate new energy for the new season. We invite and accept transition and gain perspective, we notice what does no longer serve us and make room for what it is that we are truly seeking.
