Begin with a sense of gratitude. Gratitude sends ripples of well-being throughout your body and into the Whole of your life. Gratitude is a powerful positive emotion that can affect your biology by creating biochemical events that nourish your body and mind: heart rhythms shift, blood pressure normalizes, stress hormone levels drop, and your immune system becomes stronger.
Sit for a moment and connect to your heart centre by imagining that your breath is going straight to your heart, and breathe a little deeper. If you don’t feel the energy at first, imagine that your do, or visualize it in the form of a lotus flower or your personal guru sitting in your heart. When you breathe out, direct the energy to the object of your gratitude. Start with something really obvious to you, your healthy body, your lover, your family and friends, your guru, a beautiful sunshiny day, rain… each day try think of something new to appreciate, then eventually move onto the things that cause stress in your life and be grateful for the lessons they present.
Let gratitude intrude into your daily conversations and facebook updates.
Allow gratitude to become your new habit, and experience a newfound joy in your life.
