We find an easy, natural breathing pattern and attach an affirmation of gratitude, "Thank You". It's a general thank you, and a full on inquiry into what it is you can be thankful for. Gratitude is the understanding that so many things have come together for us to just take one more breath, and that we're a part of something that is a privilege.

I learned that it’s wonderful to begin my night’s rest with a meditation of gratitude and centering. A pleasant reminder of the miraculous day behind me. Good night. 😌

most of the time everyone is always so rushed and busy. but it's so good to sit down and practice steady breathing. after a while, you forget you are stressed and actually inhale/exhale: thank you😌

Gratitude for just being me
How powerful this meditation was for me today. I have been rushing around all morning trying to be a part of my 4 young kids lives while having a lot of anxious thoughts going through my mind. Just saying thank you, not for a situational reason was very comforting to me. Thank you for me, just being me! Thank you everyone, for just being you!

It helps to tie this emotion to the breath. Sometimes when you stop to breathe, the emotion will follow.

Repeating thank you felt great. Just saying the words without being thankful for anything specific opened up my soul a bit. I can take in more gratitude by saying thank you more often.

This meditation brought me to a beautiful place to start my day. Sometimes we get so focused on the negatives that we let ourselves feel that we forget to feel the good in our lives. This meditation reminded me to look at how much good there is in simply being alive. Have a great day. 💕

Appreciation
Appreciate those little things that get you through the day without your thanks. The breath that sustains you, the body that gets you from A to B, the mind that processed your actions. From the moment you wake to the moment you go back to sleep a million thanks to those unnoticed actions.

Cecilia

This mediation helped me remember to be thankful for just being alive. For waking up this morning. For being me. Life itself is a blessing. We all too often forget this and take it for advantage. This brought me back and kept me grounded.

I learned another way to incorporate gratitude into my day. Using meditation to be thankful for all of life’s blessings and remembering to be grateful even while meditating. Positive energy has the power to change my life and the lives of all those around us. We all need to harness this simple idea to better our lives.

What a simple technique to use throughout the day to refocus back on being grateful... breathe In ‘Thank’ and out ‘You’ !! I guess you could say I am thankful for every breathe I take. What a great vibration to have and spread!

Inhale “thank”. Exhale “you”
Today I am grateful for jessy and tigger. For Christmas movies. For my organizational skills. For time to myself. Thank you.

Taking anything for granted
Is the opposite of gratitude. The blindness to the miracle, the ignorance of my power, the beginning of non-love.

Gratitude should be giving in the moment and not after an event. Don’t be thankful because you’re given something. Be thankful in the moment that you are here. Be thankful always. ❤️

Gratitude is just being aware of the privilege of being present and not just being thankful after an act. It is understanding that everything meshes together so that we may continue to breathe.

You should be thankful for everything you have in life
You don’t know when someone or something is going to be gone so you have to live and love every moment with them , and be thankful for everything that you have and everyone that you have in your life

Thank you
I learned that the thank you breaths alert me to be kinder in moments of stress or irritation. As I was meditating my dog was barking and as I breathed ‘Thank you’ I added “for the reminder” (he wanted to come in the house). Normally I might tense up but this time I emphasized with his needs as well as my own. Thank you

The notion that gratitude was active, rather than passive, resonated with me. It is not something that exists as a reaction to something else, but perhaps a state of being that results from self-awareness and connection.

Thank You
Inhaling "thank", and exhaling "You" made me be aware, for the first time, of the conscious Everything, surrounding me, answering to me, even looking at me. You have always been there, attentive, caring, loving, supporting, teaching lesson after lesson, repeating lessons when I was too blind and deaf. I am never alone, You are always with me.

She is absolutely right. So many things come together just to breathe. Being grateful for being in each moment is takes practice and matters. She is also right that gratitude is not about getting something in order to be grateful. I can definitely be more grateful for each moment and being in each moment. Loved this meditation.

I always end each day by listing things I was grateful for, but I realize it’s also nice to start each day with a thankful heart. For an opportunity to live another day and a morning filled with potential and possibilities. The fact that I have another day to grow, nourish, and embrace things that are important to me, another chance to try, to try better, is a beautiful gift. This morning, this insight allows me to not take things for granted.

Gratitude practices always make me believe in telepathy. Whenever I sit, repeat ‘thank you’s, and think of the people in my life- I come to believe that they receive that energy. Even if it gets lost in transmission, the universe receives the positivity. As a result, those I love and those I’ve never met all benefit from a global shift towards gratitude.

I may joke about how I don’t want to be on this earth sometimes when things get stressful. Sometimes I tell my parents “well I didn’t ask to be here” but deep down I do know that being here is a privilege and this meditation helped reaffirm me of this belief. I was chosen to be born and there are many people who would have liked to remain on this earth for longer than the time they got. So thank you for Lord for blessing me with my life.

Big rocks first
I’ve heard the story before, but as a way to accomplish tasks (and pack the car!). This is the first time I’ve thought about it for how to prioritize what I do in general in life, and who/what I put first, acknowledging the core of what makes life worth living for me. Namaste

Breathing not fun, but mindful moments nice
Most of this session I kept being distracted by the discomfort I’m feeling because of sinus problems I’ve had for several days. My head aches and my nose is sore from blowing it so much. What I noticed at the end with the sweet Thank You was that I felt thankful I’d gotten the reminder to use Aura and took the opportunity to do it!

Reminder to be thankful
While every day may seem a struggle; a struggle to outcompete others and ourselves; while the world has so many demands and expectations on us; we should remember to be thankful. Thankful for all that has had to happen to allow us to be alive. This meditation has been a great reminder thereof.

Six months ago I was down, depressed and at a point where I didn’t know if I could keep going. Today I’m 180 degrees from where I was.

Good things have happened and will continue to happen in abundance. Trust the process. #StillIrise #GoldenLife #ThankYOU

Appreciating what I have brings pleasure to my mind. If it were not for my blessings, life would be dull and boring. If it were not for my relationships, I would be lonely. If it were not for the hard times, I would not know my strength. So thank you and good night.

I learned that we need to be thankful for ourselves and all the we are and for our bodies as a whole. Gratitude is about being grateful for ourselves too and all that we put ourselves through everyday and accomplish, I don’t put as much time and effort into that with being a mother. This was a great reminder. Thank you for this mediation and this app! It always helps me and has been such a blessing in my life. I truly look forward to doing my mediation sessions everyday and my grateful journal on here as well. There is so much too be thankful for and some times with our busy day to day life we over look some of the most important things like our bodies, mind and soul. Which these are the very things that keep us alive and they require just as much attention if not more. Truly thankful for this mindful moment 🥰🙏🏼

Everyone is always complaining about everything and anything. Starting the day with this meditation definitely helps set the tone for the way I want the day and my life in general to go.

Thank you.
A short but effective meditation that reminded me that there is so much to be grateful for in this privilege we call life. With a lot of negativity around me this morning, it is so easy for me to get caught up in their thoughts and lose track of myself as my anxiety takes over but today, I’ve decided not to let that happen. Today, regardless of the negativity, I’m not going to let it bring me down. I’m going to focus on the things I’m grateful for and perhaps I can try and be grateful for their negativity as it pushes me to become stronger and more resilient.

Thank... You...
Today, I was thankful she didn’t ask for deep breathing (like many of the others). I guess the allergies are still kicking my butt this morning. Anytime I take a deep breath, I start another coughing episode— like coughing my lungs up, coughing. So... Thank... You... for working with my regular breaths this morning and infusing them with gratitude. 🙏 🦋☀️🌺

It is 8:15 am on a Sunday. I had slowly waken up about 15 minutes ago. The weather is nice right now. I noticed that there was an overall sense of calmness in me before i watched the video; and after i watched it, even more so. This is nice :’)

An Attitude From Gratitude
My phone randomly told me that Aura had picked this for me. Never once had it done that before. So sure- why the heck not. I got three minutes. 🤷🏻‍♀️ So instantly it takes me back to Tony Robbins and finally I feel my shoulders relax. Thank you thank you thank you for the blessing of this tracker his morning. It put be on a beautiful path today and I feel grateful and happy for the future

Thank you
I am always grateful for receiving assistance at work even when that help is a part of the job. And so I take the time to say thank you as part of my correspondence. I hope sharing little things like that help make others’ days a bit better. This meditation broadened my awareness of my actions and reminded me to include myself.

Thank you 🙏🏼
I learned that it is important for us to periodically stop throughout our day and just take time to pause through our busy day and sit in silence and thank ourselves, our bodies and all that we are and all that we have an be thankful and just sit and reflect, relax and truly be mindful in the moment. I don’t don’t do this enough. We are so busy, going and doing things that we forget to thank our bodies and ourselves and just sit in gratitude. We are constantly go, go, go and we forget to give ourselves and our bodies a break. This meditation really helped me, breathing in thank and releasing you was so helpful to stay focused and it really relaxed me and help start my day off right! I will be doing this more often throughout my day! 🧘🏼‍♀️

THANK YOU
I needed that. I don’t know if I could have been any more in need of something so simple and humbling. But thank you to the sweet instructor whom I enjoy all of the meditations done by her she has a very strong and quite sincere tone about her voice. It reminds me of the actress Natalie Portman. Whom I also admire. Anyways I always feel uplifted after taking time to listen to this app but especially this girl. Somehow the questioning that comes from analyzing our own thoughts and feelings, often delightfully Surpasses these all to easily obtained thoughts of self pity and discouragement(that I believe everyone has trouble avoiding at times) Something about this girls voice Settles in my head I feel connected through her honest nd real talks about things I find myself pondering over randomly anyways. So again inhaling ««Thank ; exhaling »»You 🕉😌💓💛☮️

Gratitude
I’m working on strengthening my gratitude practice, and this meditation was wonderful. Sometimes it can be hard to find specific things that I’m grateful for, and can make gratitude meditations feel fake or inauthentic to me. This meditation, with a simple, general thank you that spans a multitude of things, is wonderful for those times. It helps to strengthen the gratitude muscle while not forcing it, allowing for a more general sense of being grateful.

Sometimes we forget that it is incredible we were even born. There are trillions of other things that we could have been, a tree, a dog, a mosquito. Use this as fuel for gratefulness and therefore finding purpose.

Gratitude & Giving vs. Want
I loved this session. Gratitude brings contentment because it is focusing on what we have, the good in our lives. Traditionally, we taught to focus on want, but want is focusing on what we lack. “Desire is a contract you make with yourself to be unhappy until you get what you want.” -Naval Ravikant I have a few long-term goals that mean the world to me. Taking tiny steps toward them each day is one if the most meaningful things in my life. But day to day, moment to moment, I’ve found that it’s far more fulfilling to focus on gratitude and giving than wanting. Gratitude is focusing on what you have. Giving is focused on what you have to offer. In a way, it’s like you’re so bursting with wholeness, you have some to spare. I think that’s why it’s often surprisingly more fulfilling to give than to receive.

Gratitude in Small Doses
You don’t just have to be thankful for the big things. Gratitude should start with the smaller, simpler things. Be thankful that you’re alive, that you have all of your functions. There’s so much that we as humans don’t appreciate until something extreme happens. Be grateful for the little things.

What a great meditation
And so, in every breath we learn to give thanks with this meditation. This will be a new favorite because, gratefulness increase the body’s vibration and helps tip the scale towards manifesting desires into our lives. Breathing in “thank”, exhaling/releasing “you”, so that with every cycle of breath, we have a unique opportunity to shift our energy, thoughts, breathing, focus and attention. “Thank you” for this one...

Beautiful meditation to begin the day with. Every time I inhaled saying the word thank in my mind and exhaling you, I found so many things to be grateful for. I am grateful for this new day filled with many new possibilities as well as good health. It is going to be a great day! 😀🙌🙏

Practicing gratitude everyday gives us a feeling of abundance. It helps refocus our brain on what we have instead of what we are lacking. In this short very effective meditation session, Lauren has you say silently on your inhale “thank” and on your exhale “you”. With each new breath along with silently saying thank you, I could feel my body starting to wake up along with a smile on my face. I am grateful for waking up feeling rested, having a few quiet moments to myself to enjoy my coffee before my day gets started, a healthy body, and for this new day. Wonderful session to set the tone for my day. I am glad Aura suggested this one to me since I forgot it was on my favorites list. May you find at least one thing you are grateful for today.🙏❤️🍀

I have tears streaming down my face in gratitude. As I was doing this meditation and breathing in thing and breathing out you I had a cardinal chirping on one side and a dove cooing on the other. Both of those birds represent my mother and my grandmother - both of them on the other side but clearly with me this morning. I am filled with gratitude and thanks.

Ever So Grateful
I look at the world in terms of BC or before corona, DC or during corona and eventually, AC - after corona. We are definitely in D C. I am grateful that Americans are finally understanding that wearing a mask is not political it is humane. After all we are humans being human. I don't want to get sick, and I certainly don't want to be responsible for another person's infection. I am grateful that I have had a lot of experience being isolated from the rest of the world. I have access to the Internet. I have cable TV. I have a job I can do from home that I absolutely love. I was able to extend a helping hand to a friend who about to be homeless in Lost Wages. I couldn't let that happen to someone I love, especially since I have a second bedroom that I don't use. It is wonderful to have a roommate. After living alone for 30 years I did not think I could ever live with someone again. I had tried and it had never work out. I found that people took advantage of my generosity and left me with nothing. (Seriously, thousands of lost dollars, but no matter, “it is what it is “. But now I have a roommate who I've known for over 30 years from back in the day as performing artists in San Francisco. We experienced the entire punk scene, the advent of the plague, and the horrors of dividend capitalism take over America. I know San Francisco will never be the same. We were the last of the bohos, and god am I grateful I was a part of the magic.

Mindfulness is difficult for me because my bad thoughts and actions and responses have become habits. And habits are so hard to break! Thank you though for making me take a few minutes to just relax and say thank you for all the positive things I have in my life andbtake for granted or choose to ignore or to explain it better, refuse to believe in positivity.

Thankfulness
Thankfulness is measured by our level of awareness. In this wonderful meditation, we practice saying ‘thank’ on our inhale and ‘you’ on our exhale. Sitting upright, I brought awareness to my breath. As I brought my attention here, my inhale and exhale naturally began to lengthen. I began to say ‘thank’ on my inhale and ‘you’ on my exhale. Present with this breath, I noticed my senses working optimally. Birds chirping in the background. Flashes of light behind my closed eyes. The slightly bitter taste of coffee in my mouth. The air on my skin and a felt sense of presence growing within my heart space. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
