Day 9: Changing your Personal Reality

Today's meditation gives us the starting place for transforming reality - our own self. Reality is not an impersonal experience or concept. It is personal and how we see it and relate to it is a product of our unique history, attitudes and beliefs. We are unique in who we are, unique in how we see the world and unique in the reality we experience.

The core of our awareness is the source of our beliefs, feelings and attitudes, and therefore that is the place from which we can change our personal reality. This inner awareness is an ever-present field of possibilities. We always have the possibility or choice for change at any moment.

Gratitude is a practice that empowers us in this choice to see the opportunties in our life with fresh eyes.

Our centering thought for today is:

My personal reality begins inside me.

"The thankful heart will find, in every hour, some heavenly blessings"

~ Henry Ward Beecher

Sanskrit Mantra

Om Hreem - "I am the reality that unifies diversity"

Journal Questions

  1. Write about any memories or negative experiences that make it difficult for you to feel gratitude. This list can be as long or as short as you like.

  2. Describe any strong physcial sensations, feelings or attitudes associated with each experience from Q1. These give you clues to the ways and places you may be stuck in the past.

  3. Using the list from Q1, journal about one way in which you can begin to move past each experience. Eg; if you feel regret over an ended relationship, write about serveral positive things that have happened in your life since its endpoint.

I know that life itself is a gift, and I am so grateful for mine.

I am grateful for my life as the breath inhabiting these cells.

I am grateful for my life as is lived through my sensory experiences.

I am grateful for my life as comprised of the people, places, and opportunities that describe it.

I am grateful for my life as the collection of privileges and choices that make it nothing short of a blessing of epic proportions each and every day.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.
