Self-Discovery Guidelines to Access and Activate:

Writing down your insights is very helpful. 

Before you start, we encourage you to keep a journal of your explorations, so grab a journal, pad of paper or print the worksheet below.

1. Feel your body, take a few moments to settle in. Your body holds deep wisdom. Trust in it. Learn from it. Connect with it.

2. Bring your awareness to the specific Inner Resource of Gratitude, as you slow down, and take a few deep breaths.

3. Allow the word Gratitude to just drop into your field of being and notice what you experience with curiosity and kindness to yourself. 

Take your time, go slowly, and be patient with yourself to get the best results.

Explore the following questions with curiosity and kindness to yourself:

How quickly gratitude can change my mood, my perspective, my life!

Gratitude may be the simplest and easiest way to reverse gloom, sadness, depression, and any kind of negative state.

Simply ask yourself, What am I genuinely grateful for in this moment?”.

And be open to find one thing, one small and simple thing…

Just one.

Take a moment and let an answer come to you. It could be as simple as “I can breathe.” Or “I can walk.” Or “I have clothes.” Or anything like that.

Just one small thing.

Then, think of one more thing. And then, another thing.

Notice how you feel as you realize what you are genuinely grateful for.

There is so much to be genuinely grateful for!

Think of a few more things. Bring curiosity to your experience. Notice how this experience of gratitude feels in your body.

Notice how it affects your mood.

Once you have named three things, you can find 1000.

As I simply turn my mind to consider the things I am genuinely grateful for, I find there is no end to the list.

Gratitude fills my life with joy!

What am I grateful for about my body?

Just find one small thing.

And then, one more.

Gratitude is truly a super-power, it’s so simple and so effective.

Notice the feelings that emerge as you pay attention to the experience of gratitude. Continue to discover the many things you are genuinely grateful for, one after the other.

It can be helpful to name your feelings.

The feeling of authentic gratitude is a healing nectar for the heart and soul.

Notice what it feels like to bring the attitude of gratitude throughout your day.

We invite you to continue this journey of self-discovery. It is not a once-and-done experience. Please revisit this exploration into Gratitude and discover how it continues to deepen and enhance the quality of your life.

Feel Your Body
Relax your body, and just be aware of how your body feels. Without changing anything, notice what you are feeling, and where you are feeling things in your body.  If your body wants to adjust a little, let it. Be curious how it feels as your body relaxes.
