In this meditation, I talk about giving thanks, or gratitude.

Thanksgiving is a holiday that seems rooted in American history and tradition, but did you know that many countries around the world have their own versions of thanksgiving?

Most religions practise giving thanks in some form or another and to others, keeping a gratitude diary or journal of all the things they are grateful for is their way of giving thanks.

Originally, Thanksgiving was the celebration of a good harvest. Regardless of your reasons and to what you are giving thanks too, taking time out on a regular basis to focus on being grateful for what you have is a practice that can improve your life dramatically.

No matter what your situation, there is always something to be grateful for and the more time you spend focusing on those things, the less time you are worrying about the negative aspects of life.

I could go on about the benefits of practising gratitude but I’d rather direct you to a great article written by Amit Amin called “The 31 Benefits of Gratitude You Didn’t Know About: How Gratitude Can Change Your Life

*Note: There is an element to this meditation that guides you through focusing on your different senses, such as sight, sound, smell, touch and taste. If for some unfortunate reason, you are missing one of these senses, use the time to focus on something else that you may be grateful for such as one of your other senses.

Keywords for this episode

I believe that meditation is such an integral part of human growth that I simply cannot justify making it unavailable to people by charging money for it. However, we live in a world where money is required to pay the bills and fill the fridge. Your donation will ensure I can continue to provide this service and really does make a huge difference as this is what I survive off.

It takes a lot of time, skill and effort to create these meditations, which is why they are constantly ranked amongst the highest quality on apps like Insight Timer (the worlds No.1 Meditation app).

As a sign of appreciation, I would love to shout your name from the rooftops, which probably doesn’t really do much for you, so I can also shout it from the social media rooftops if you like, along with your business name if you have one. And if you want to remain anonymous, we can make that work too.

I am honoured that you took the time to listen to this meditation and overflowing with gratitude for your donation 🙏💜

Wishing you a most beautiful day,
