Contentment - Happy
I realized that I enjoy my weekly Legion of Mary meetings and I come home always happy and peaceful. I'm appreciative of my life and family.

Day
I wasn't a huge fan of todays meditation session. I was looking more for something that would connect me with what's going on around me. However it did leave me feeling very thankful, and today was a good day so no complaints here.

Athlete's Meditation
I was happy to get a meditation that reached out to me as an athlete. I spend a decent amount of time working my muscles and expect a lot from them. It was good to sit and take some time to appreciate them.

Physical Meditation
We often meditate to clear the mind and give thanks or bring clarity or stillness. However today's mediation bit y bit emphasizes the unsung hero in our body; our muscles which silently nut effectively keep us going not just throughout our day but our lifetimes. This meditation brought that awareness with a strong sense of gratitude for each muscle and the role it does.

I touched on this yesterday. Despite the pain in my extremities, and let's forgo my lack of fluid mobility...the ability to hug and just enjoy my loved ones isn't lacking one bit. God day everyone. Namaste 🙏🏾

Gratitude for Muscles
Love this meditation. It reminds me to be cognizant of the functions of the body muscles that keep me going everyday . The awareness and by all means the Gratitude for Muscles is appreciative.

I learned to acknowledge, love, embrace and be thankful for the movement of my being. I learned to develop a relationship with my body, the vehicle to accompany me on this journey, this experience we call life. I am thankful. ❤️

Appreciation
I learned that I should be appreciative of my muscles. They help me move and not strain and that they take a lot of pressure.

Distractions
I did this meditation while on the train and there were many sounds and other distractions around me. I found the gaps of silence in the meditation to be difficult in regards to staying focused but I was happy I could bring my attention back when I realized it was wandering.

Doable
I learned that meditation is something I can do. Before it felt beyond me or something I am incapable of. Seeing that by taking the time to sit and do it, it's doable!

This was the least helpful meditation.
This was not relaxing - narrator just pointed out muscles. Sigh.

Listening to the tape does relax your muscles but it takes practice, you cannot expect perfection on your first try.

Reflecting on muscle awareness
Awareness and reflection of the strength that lies within my muscles from the tip of my toes to the top of my head to the ends of my fingers causes me to feel strength to power up for each day.

Reflecting on muscles
I felt my body aging and came closer to a sense of urgency and compassion for my body. I want to feel stronger and I have the ability to make that happen.

Appreciation for Our Anatomy
we tend to forget that we were made in God’s image. our bodies are so beautiful and strong but hardly are taken care of when you’re focused on other things. we need to cleanse and show gratitude to our temple and remember that the muscles are working everyday for our pleasure. we’re in perfect design, even as disabled. whatever we lack, we grow stronger and whatever we have, we become thankful. appreciation for our anatomy. 💜

It’s easy to forget about what our bodies do for us. It’s easier to focus on the mental and emotional gratitude in our lives. I’m glad that I took a few minutes to be present in my physical self, and be thankful for it.

Muscles
There is so much about myself to pay attention to. If I can focus more on how my own body functions, I would be able to stress less about what goes on outside of my body.

Grounded in Gratitude
Unlike most meditations starting with the head, this sequence began with our feet providing me with a sense of being ‘grounded’ in gratitude throughout the meditation. Wonderful meditation with which to begin my day.

Our muscles in our bodies are important and sometimes we tend to forget about them; to stretch them, to massage them, etc. it’s important that we focus on the muscles just as we focus on breathing. We cannot forget the outer layer. Thank you, Aura! Have a nice day, Everyone!😀🐬

Made To Be Strong
I realized that your muscles are working all the time. From the simple tasks like smiling to the more difficult tasks like exercising. You are made to be a strong and powerful person. Build and grow your muscles to be the best you. Be strong and love yourself!🌿 #createyourself

Feeling whole
I like meditations that break things down into smaller pieces, it makes even the big things feel attainable. Even improving yourself as a whole. I also like the fact that this meditation gives the time to appreciate each individual piece of your body the attention it deserves.

Thankfulness Is A Different Vibe
Muscles respond and feel differently when the intent is thankfulness as opposed to assessment. This meditation also led me in the direction of people that I’m thankful for.

What We Do For Muscles
I learned that we should not appreciate muscles, but muscles should appreciate us. We make them stronger. If those muscles in our thighs were weak, we’d make them strong. They’re not strong just to be nice, we made them strong. They should thank me.

My muscles do so much for my body and it’s good to take time to sit back and be thankful for the simple things in your life. Without my muscles I wouldn’t be able to go and chase after my dreams

Gratitude for my semi dad bod
I just turned 40 this week. My mind is stronger and my body has become weaker. This was an awesome exercise today. I’ve been making small changes in my diet and sleep. Exercise is the missing piece. Im grateful for being healthy. I am truly blessed, I feel it with all my heart. Time to take care of myself so I can take care of anyone in need. Thank you muscles 💪I owe ya one!

Sore but happy.
I have been getting back into weight lifting and yoga and rarely take time to really focus on my muscles to help relax and recover. A new and welcome experience.

Don’t miss it
When my thoughts slipped on to some random unrelated thoughts I missed the gratitude for my arms. That was an important lesson for me.

Gratitud necesaria
Ya me hacia falta relajarme, esto especialmente porque en el día estuve bastante acelerado. Necesitaba volver a la calma mental para poder reflexionar mis últimos impulsos. Mismos que me definirán los siguientes meses.

Gift
Our bodies are a gift sent to us for us to learn. And to reach greater heights. The very core of that is our muscles.

Im training for a 10 mile run and a triathlon and last week was a bit off. I didnt have the discipline or time i have had in previous weeks and it was a bit frustrating. My back was also bothering me so maybe the rest was needed so i dont injure myself. Picturing and appreciating these muscles seems like a very good reset to start this week. I know it will also be a busy one but staying grounded in meditations like these helps to keep me in balance.

Thanking...
This is a quick body scan to show appreciation for the various muscle groups and what they do. I have done this & a few other things for years to keep the awesome body I developed as a youth. I often confess that I am blessed with an awesome body with quick healing powers. I have a clear image of the body I want ( this is the CRITICAL part) and mine is my 220# buff body from my 20s! And I have been fortunate to learn how to keep it for decades now. Because my body wants to create the image in my mind, I find it natural to drink plenty of water and eat lotsa fruits & veggies and just a little meat (although I do a lot of peanut butter). I do not believe it is just about the food we eat but our “Attitude” about the food we eat. I find it easy to eat a little junk food once in a while with no problem. But I truly enjoy fruits, veggies, seeds & nuts and spices. Get a good image of yourself, eat right, exercise - basically move all your muscles and joints everyday (going to the gym is not necessary) and have gratitude for life and say to yourself often - “I am returning to perfect health!” And you will.

More Gratitude
On a daily basis we take for granted the hard work we put our bodies through. I felt tension and strain release from my body by showing each muscle each section of my body gratitude! I am grateful for the work and support my muscles provide 💪🏾

Listening to body sensations
Feels so good to pay attention to our body, all the sensations and the muscles I use every day. It made me realise that I have the chance to be healthy, and that I have to be grateful for it.

okay
I was feeling a bit down so I couldn't fully feel that graditude but it's a good meditation in general, I'm sure I would have enjoyed it if I did it some other day.

More Relaxed
I felt sleepy and stressed before doing this meditation. Now that I did this, I feel so more awake and more conscious of my surroundings. I recommend this meditation for anyone who needs it anytime. I liked the part when the speaker said we can replay the meditation at any time while having pleasant bird sounds.
