Gratitude Benefits Mind and Body

“There is no prescription for finding moments of gratitude in every day; there is simply the choice.”  

— Gillian Deacon

 

 

This week we will extend our understanding and experience of gratitude to the mind-body connection. Gratitude is much more than an attitude or mood – it is a powerful positive input to our mind-body system that leads to increased physical and psychological wellbeing.

 

Grateful thoughts and meditative states don’t just stay in your mind. Messenger molecules instantly transmit their effects to the body’s 100 trillion cells, creating new brain cells and new pathways and brain patterns. The practice of gratitude has even been found to change our gene expression in a positive direction.

 

By directing our awareness toward gratitude, our entire mind-body system is automatically oriented toward greater health and balance.

 

 

Our centering thought for today is: Every thankful moment makes me healthier.

Mantra: Shara Vana Ya 

 

This mantra attunes your intentions with the intentions of the cosmos. This activates the purposeful force of intention to transform present circumstances into favorable opportunities.
