Though we should practice gratitude all year long, November seems to be the month that it becomes a true focus as we give thanks for all that is in our lives. Practicing gratitude can be a profound and life changing experience and adding a few Eden Energy Medicine techniques to your daily practice can help to boost the joy that you feel in your life. It might even help make the month of Thanksgiving even more thankful.
Heaven Rushing In helps us to tap into the bigger picture of the moment. Place your hands on your thighs and take a few deep breaths to ground yourself. Then on an inhale, raise your hands to your sides and over your head, touching your hands above it. On an exhale, bring them down to a prayer position in front of your chest. On the next deep breath, open them wide to the sky above your head and stay there as long as you need to. When you are ready, bring your hands to your heart and breathe a few times feeling a loving, thankful energy in your heart area and throughout your entire body.
The Nine Hearts exercise can help to tap into our natural state of joy, and therefore enhance our gratitude potential. Start by tracing three hearts around your face starting at your forehead. Next, trace three hearts starting at the middle of your chest and down to your pubic bone. Lastly, trace three big hearts over your head and down to your thighs or even to your feet. Be sure to breathe and not get too hung up on the specifics of this exercise.
