Morning Grace
In this short, but powerful 3 step practice, we set ourselves up for having a rewarding day. As I became comfortable in my chair, I took a few cleansing breaths into my body. Feeling the expansion of my lungs as I breathed in, I felt the enjoyment of being alive. Feeling as the air flowed out of my lungs, I felt the joy of being connected. Step 1: think of someone or something to be grateful for. As I thought about what brought me gratitude, all of the creatures and vegetation that make the nature park their home came to mind. They all give me great joy and a sense of belonging as I am able photograph their constant unfoldment. Step 2: think of a way to be of service to some being. As I thought about this, beautiful ideas filled my mind. I can send well wishes to others, hold a door for someone, be a listening ear, be present, give a smile, the list goes on and on. An act of kindness brings happiness every time. Step 3: practice self care. Notice when and where judgements arise and send a kind gesture toward myself instead. Being a good friend to myself will ensure that I am a good friend to others. What a beautiful way to begin my day! I appreciate learning these steps and will implement them in my morning routine. Thank you, Ian! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️

Gratitude
I felt gratitude for the financial assistance I receive from those around me! And I learnt that it’s one thing to be grateful but to actually focus on what you are grateful for, smile while thinking of these things and really feeling the gratitude makes all the difference!

I felt calm and appreciative. I felt like I understood what today should be about. Appreciate, give, and self care. It is about Piper today.

I really like the intentions that are being set during this meditation. This may well be the perfect morning practice of meditation. I will listen to this practice each and every morning, from now on, and I highly recommend it. Let’s all put some positive energy out there and what goes around comes around…

Intentional Being
I learned that powerful intentions focus on ways of being, not just doing in fact focusing on being grateful, kind and compassionate can be even more powerful

I’m seriously getting really comfortable with this meditation
I’m seriously getting comfortable with this meditation because I’m seriously getting fed up with not being able to sleep at night and I just feel like so much has been waking me up at night and I hear door slams and dogs bark in the morning and I don’t want to hear it I just got up I don’t want to hear people screaming and yelling Margo Margo early in the morning and I just feel tired I’ve learned that when I lay down my head I can relax and just be calm and be at peace and I’ve noticed when I’m meditating I can feel the lord saying Margo it’s not easy to be in one side and I feel the lord touching me and talking to me saying Margo I’ve got you I’ve got a total handle on this don’t you worry pray to me and I will take every fear every problem and every tear and keep me at peace

Gratitude and appreciation are a part of my morning and evening rituals. I am becoming more grounded, productive and at ease. I still have challenges, but don’t feel overwhelmed, instead I am confident that continued practice will enable me to thrive and overcome fears and procrastination which is based on fear. I am grateful to be progressing, for being grounded and for recognizing all that I have and the beauty that surrounds me. I am attracting positive energy and radiating positive energy, which grows more each day. 🙏 Namaste ❣️

The Perfect Morning
This session was exactly what I needed. I recently returned from a six day cruise; nothing but rest and relaxation. But the Monday following I was back on the rat wheel. Now this morning, I have decided to stop and pause to think about what I am most grateful for and to give thanks. Then I listened to this session and it confirmed that today is going to be a self-care day for me!!!!
