Learn about taking in the good by attending to the qualitative state of GRATITUDE to support overall psychological well-being. Watch now.
Greetings everyone. Thank you for joining this Patient Empowerment Network program. In this practice session we will be focusing our attention on positive states of mind that support wellbeing.
The mind can be looked at like a garden. In this practice session we will be planting seeds in the garden of our minds by focusing our attention on positive states of mind. These mental states become inner resources that are more accessible to us in our daily experiences. So, for this particular practice session we will be planting the seeds of Gratitude.
To start our practice, find a comfortable seat. A chair is perfectly fine. And make any arrangements to support your back if necessary. Allow your eyes to softly close, if you feel comfortable doing so. Feeling into the weight of your body being supported by your seat. Bring to mind something that you are grateful for. A person, place or an object. Allowing this sense of thankfulness, gratefulness, gratitude to expand in your mind. Allowing yourself to feel into the experience of gratitude. Bring to mind something else that you are grateful for. Allowing it to expand in your mind. Allowing yourself to feel into it. Bring to mind one more thing that you are grateful for. Allowing it to expand in your mind. Feeling deeply into it. This sense of gratefulness, thankfulness, gratitude. Allowing this feeling of gratitude to penetrate and permeate your entire being. Noticing what is pleasant about this experience of gratitude. Feeling into the experience of gratitude. Unbounded gratitude. Exhaling your breath out and take in a full inhalation and exhaling with a soft ah… Gently open your eyes. We hope you have enjoyed this Patient Empowerment Network program.
