While 2020 seems to continuously bring us conflict, elevating anxiety, and wreaking havoc on our mindscapes, there is a way to escape it all: through a carefully crafted gratitude meditation. This particular practice has long been the balm on the weary soul of students, and this meditation will bring light and joy to your heart. Note: The music portion contains the chant, Gam gam gam ganapataye namaha, Ganesha Sharanam. This chant invokes Ganesh, remover of obstacles.
Everyone is experiencing elevated stress, anxiety, and even loneliness and depression at this time. It’s just part of what’s happening in the world with the pandemic and the uncertainty. If this is you or someone you know, I thought perhaps that I would, in this podcast, guide you through a meditation that might help.
There are many people, circumstances, events in life to which we may cultivate gratitude. Let’s consider them.
One of the foundations of a positive mind, an uplifted outlook and relief of stress is the simple feeling of gratitude.
