The practice of gratitude is a powerful way to bring more happiness, well-being and resilience into our lives.  It’s done by using thinking to generate a positive mind state, then dwelling in the effects of that positive mind state. Give it a try!

I have so many things and people to be grateful for. Taking time to appreciate each special person or gift is such a positive start for my day!

It’s interesting...
That this meditation should suggest envisioning someone’s face. Just this morning, as my wife was leaving for work, I noticed in her face a look that is very characteristic for her. As I saw that look, it really stood out to me. I realized that was something unique to her, and I appreciated it. (It was a good look, not “the” look!) I’m very grateful for my wife.

I pictured my husband AND my dogs-both help me soooo much... I can only pray they are grateful for me...but this meditation is wonderful for opening up your heart, and to count one’s true blessings...

I learned that I’m incredibly lucky to have good friends in my life, friends that make all the stress caused from my dad go away, and that make me feel loved and appreciated

Embrace honest detailed criticism from those that love you.
You’re not structured. You don’t value structure and planning because you get a mental high from juggling ideas and listening/reading different viewpoints on different topics. What do you want? You’re taking in all this information and allocating way too much time to way too many topics, yet you don’t have a plan for where any of this is going. You’ve become hooked on abstract ideas and that’s a great trait, but have you ever tried structured chaos? Taking these array of ideas and actually drawing them out OBJECTIVELY to understand where this map is taking you? I understand you love watching successful people and listening to their ideas, but are you even listening to yourself? These people became great by taking in this information and helping out their hypothesis. Not just taking in the information and regurgitating it to others to sound smart. Don’t take in others knowledge and think that now it’s yours. Create your own blueprint.

My gratitude towards the things and people who are still in my life could use a little tune-up. I’ve been angry for a long time, but I am ready for whatever God will allow in my life to move on/ahead/forward today!

Big Picture
I am grateful for the big picture, the mosaic of little things that make up my life. I truly am blessed. Yet, in this practice I was unable to drill down and be grateful for a thing, or a person. I get fearful; I don’t want a person to get too close. I don’t want my happiness to depend on a thing. Fear? If I let someone/something get too close, it might get taken away? For now, to be grateful, I will continue to stand back, alone and detached, and admire my blessed life from afar. Any closer makes me quite uneasy.

We really have the power to orient our days to be better when we focus on all the good that we have
We can generate positive thinking and dwell on it. Thank you

We need to see things that count
Instead of always being sad or bored by things we don't have, we should be thankful to good things we have : friends, family, music, nature... it doesn't we don't have to work for things we really want but just no become sad of it. Moreover, we really should to say thank you to our people for being here with us and say to them how much they count to us and how much they make us happy.

Day 2
Today I did my meditation on Gratitude by Now with Dea. After having an emotional breakdown during my shower today I really needed this time to just sit and relax and rethink some things. After doing this I learned that I have to practice gratitude. It’s something I genuinely feel I struggle with. I’m not as grateful for things as I should be and it’s not right. However due to this meditation I will end up working on this and practice gratitude more often.

Love can defeat hate
I learned when you focus on the good, when you focus on the positivity, you feel happier. When you cut out most negativity, some weight is lifted off of your shoulders. The more you focus on the darkness than light is damaging. When you focus on the light and soak in all the love and positivity that we have in our lives, we can defeat any kind of darkness. This knowledge is so helpful. You can spread love and it soon becomes a domino affect. You spread love, that person can spread it, than that love can grow and grow. It can grow into something beautiful.

My gratitude today is for the great couple who conceived me. I owe them not only my life, but the success of my renaissance. Dad and his trust and investment in my business and my new career, Mom and her nourishment and hard work to keep me alive and healthy. I wouldn't be alive and thriving without all their help. Thank you ❤️💐😃

Breathing & More
I learned that I know how to breathe properly for meditation. I find it challenging to external use my inner fillings after meditation. Writing them into a phone feels cold & metallic versus the result of the action. Conflict. Environmental clash.

Gratitude for me
Took my own advice tonight by stepping away from a task that just wasn’t going my way. I knew I would get angry so I sat down, closed my eyes, did some slow breathing exercises and then had some ice cream. When I went back to my task I was relaxed and guess what?! It worked and the task is now completed. Sounds a little silly, but I’m rather proud of myself. Thanks Dea, for this sweet and gentle meditation. 🙏

Smiling
What a Happy session this practice was! I was smiling and feeling all warm & fuzzy thinking about my mom! I am so grateful for her & all she has done for me over my life. She taught me to know right from wrong, how to set goals and in general how to be a good person. Excuse me, but my eyes are leaking on my phone... Whew... where was I? Oh yeah, feelings of Gratitude. What a powerful thing Gratitude is! I try to use it for every little thing, all day long. Almost like a game, what can I be grateful for right now? And now?! How about now? I believe If we can be grateful for the little things, we will eventually be entrusted with bigger things to be grateful for. But if we cannot be grateful for anything, we really do not deserve what we have. I am certainly very grateful I found Aura and for Dea and for everyone who practices to become better here and.....

I just so happen to think of someone in my life that I’ve been questioning if I should still have a friendship/relationship with. This session made me think about them in a different way. I usually think of this person with anxiety and stress, but listening to the session help me think of the good times I had with this person and how I would be a bigger mess if I no longer spoke to this person.

Life is a gift
It was beautiful taking time this morning to honor the gifts in my life and life itself. My girlfriend is the most precious gift of all, and I am so grateful and lucky to have her in my life. It was helpful taking time to honor my job today, as it has been really challenging environment the last several months. I’m lucky to have a great job and feel a true sense of family there. And grateful for breathing and life itself. Life is a gift.

Generating that feeling of what Gratitude is can be a very positive and uplifting focus. I always try to have a daily Gratitude moment and snap it on snap chat. It’s for me but at the same time it’s to help make others think differently as well.

I learned that sometimes we dont really appreciate the important people in our life, the ones that are right there in front of us but we dont always see. Its really important to take our time to thank God for these people and to pay more attention to them instead of other material thing or things we dont have. The truth is, when you have the type of people that make you feel warm and peaceful inside, you dont really need anything else.

Thank you, Dea! Often we don’t give gratitude towards ourselves or towards others. A simple pat on the back or smile knowing we did a good job at something and letting ourselves know that is a good way to show gratitude. This was a great meditation and one to keep and use throughout the day if you need it. Have a nice day, Everyone!😀

Appreciate “Now” 🌼
I learned that I will be happier and calmer if I appreciate the things and the people I already have in my life rather than wanting to have more things or different people, not giving enough attention to the ones that are in my life hurts them, and I should rather focus on the things I have now rather than the possible things I could have in the future. If so, I will realize that I actually dont need anything more or anyone else.

More gratitude
I love the idea of experiencing more gratitude and believe it could make a significant positive difference in my life. I’ve thought about keeping a “gratitude journal” by my bed to jot down a short list of things I’m grateful for every night, but haven’t pulled the trigger yet. This was a tough session for me though—a few distractions in the house and realized toward the end that I’d been pretty tense throughout. Maybe it’s Valentines nerves :)

Valentine’s Day Wednesday 2-14-18
Thank you, Dea! I haven’t seen my Mom in 7 months and I am about to see her in a week in a half. I am taking a train to CA to visit for a few weeks. I am excited. This was a great meditation for me just to visualize and take in. My last trip was to take care of someone and wasn’t on a good note. I have good faith this one will be a lot different. Parents don’t get any younger. We grow up and grow farther. I miss her so much. Happy Valentines Day, Everyone!😀

When thinking of a person in my life that I am grateful for, I first saw my boyfriend who I had just spent some of the day with. This session really helped bring awareness to the feelings I have for my relationship with him and also my relationship with family and friends. I am very grateful for the people I have learned to surround myself with, it took a long time to find the right group of people.

I keep a gratitude journal even though some of the things you’re greatful for don’t last forever, by recognizing them at the time you are recognizing that life can be good and that it’s worth it. And that way when those things are gone, you got the most out of them that you could.

I am grateful for the premise of this meditation, however I noticed that mature ears have a bit of difficulty hearing a soft voice. When I struggle to hear or have to hold the phone closer to my ear, I notice that my mind tends to wander and I don’t get as much out of the meditation. I think there’s a fine balance between a soft gentle voice appropriate for meditation and a voice loud enough for mature ears to hear without struggling.

Gratitude 🙏🏼
I learned that gratitude is a daily thing and it is very important. I already knew this, but with life and having a bad day yesterday. This message was a great reminder for me. I think everyone needs this reminder daily. To just stop and practice gratitude daily throughout our day to day life. It can be easy to get caught up in wanting more and more or focusing on what is wrong or negative.. but if we our constantly practicing gratitude it makes it very hard for us to be negative and not see the brighter side of things. It’s not that we’re naive it’s that we know life is hard and that hints are brutal but we choose to send our life happy and focusing on all that we have and making it a daily practice to be grateful. A positive mind will give you a positive life. ❤️

Vocals were low compared to the background sounds, but I got the jist. A good intention for the day, to be grateful for what is here with us in the moment. Namaste

I learned that the important things I need to focus on are the things I have here that make me happy. I felt as if sun rays were upon my body and a glowy orange shadow was in my face. My heart felt as if it was lifted by doves, bringing me inner appreciation of present time and peace.

A man’s notion of willingness to acknowledge grace, further perpetuates the plausibility of value

This was very mind opening to me. I recognized how much I was focusing on the things I don’t have, or want more of, rather than noticing and appreciating the things that are already here. I need to do more of a gratitude practice. I think it will make me happier throughout the day.

Dwell on it
Low vocals in the mix but a valuable intention. The negative seems to be the default to dwell on. Change it up and instead consciously use our mind’s ability to dwell on something to shift to dwelling on what we are grateful for. Namaste

I noticed I was able to focus on my breathing with this short meditation.
I can focus on my breathing to calm down. when I'm anxious, I can turn to this meditation to calm down.

That got DEEP😨
In this session, I ended it by crying tears of JOY! I saw and heard two the people that I love the most. My love...Brandon. His face showed up and made me smile STUPID big for the longest time. I felt happiness in my soul. During the last part of this session, I remembered that awhile ago I had prayed to my sister who’s in heaven, and God to help me with patience and some other things. That is all happening in my life right now. NOTHING material, just REAL, RAW, inner happiness that I have never experienced before. It’s almost indescribable.

Gratitude
I did this meditation after a positivity meditation. I think both are so important, and in addition to gratitude for the positive I want to learn gratitude for the harder things; I think it helps reinforce both an in-the-moment being present and also a longer perspective of how things in my life fit, or don’t fit, together. It sounds like a juggling act but I don’t think it has to be. Of course, the other thing is that I frequently want to take notes during such meditations. So I’ll listen to both again, grateful for the wisdom they impart.

Refreshed Love and Appreciation
When I practiced this meditation, I felt peaceful and relaxed, warm and fuzzy. I imagined my sister, who is someone I appreciate and love dearly. This meditation has renewed my love for the world, if only briefly. Now, I gaze outside and think: What other world could hold such beauty? What other world could cultivate such life?

I am grateful for the kindness others show me. To allow myself to let it flow through me and then onto others, then it truly is forever kindness.

Gratitude Reflection
I am grate for the power(s) greater than myself that brought me a meeting about detach with love today. I am a double winner and co-dependent behavior doesn’t discriminate anyway so I see the benefit in that phrasing for me as an ACOA as well as an alcoholic. When I detach with love from another alcoholic who is trying to prove she isn’t, I benefit myself by establishing and then respecting my own boundaries, and I benefit others by allowing them to find their own path. If I wasn’t who I am right now, in this moment, I wouldn’t have known this gratitude and how good it feels.

Gratitude
Being grateful pulls me away from my self centered need for bigger, better, more. Being grateful for the gifts I’ve been given releases me from want.
