Thank You

In Gratitude to this Life

Thank you for the gift of consciousness

For open-mindedness

For clarity of intention

For the release of the old

And the willingness to embrace, now,

Our limitless potential


Thank you for the gift of vision

That we may see and appreciate and contribute to

The beauty of this wonderous creation


Thank you for the gift of speech

That through our words we may offer 

Comfort, kindness, truth and inspiration


Thank you for the gift of Love

That we may share and receive

The sweet tenderness of Being


Thank you for the gift of realization

That we may intimately know

The Divinity of our Being


Thank you for the gift of knowledge

That we may have the wisdom 

To learn from our mistakes

And the possibility to intelligently co-create


Thank you for the gift of life

For vitality and healing

That we may Be and give

The very best of ourselves

Take 5 Deep Breaths

1. Feel your body.

2. Relax your shoulders.

3. Choose a word that makes you feel peaceful, such as om, peace, or love.

4. Inhale slowly while mentally saying the word you chose. Pause before starting the exhalation.

5. Exhale slowly while mentally saying 1 with the first breath. Exhale saying 2 with the second breath, up to 5 or more.

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. (Resist any temptation to analyze or think.)
