Breath of Gratitude: A Guided Meditation Script



Welcome to a guided meditation to cultivate gratitude in your life. Find a comfortable position with your back straight, ensuring you won’t be disturbed. Let’s embark on this journey together.


Start by closing your eyes and bringing your awareness to your breath. Inhale deeply, exhale slowly, anchoring yourself in the present moment. Recall a time when you felt truly grateful for being alive, relishing the human experience.


Now, project your awareness into the near future. Envision a task you will complete, feeling the deep gratitude that accompanies success, whether it’s tomorrow or in the coming week. If future thinking is challenging, immerse yourself in the present moment, intensifying the feelings of gratitude.


As we synchronize our breath, notice the blossoming of gratitude within. Inhale deeply, feeling the gratitude grow. Assign a color to this feeling and observe it expanding with each breath. Revel in the good sensations, amplifying the essence of gratitude.


Prepare to supercharge your gratitude. Breathe in, squeeze, and release. Feel the sensations of deep gratitude enveloping you. Hold your breath, entering a moment of inner peace, recognizing life as a continuous cycle of inhales and exhales.


As you go deeper into your breath, embrace the healing energy filling your body. Enjoy the bliss of this moment. When the urge to breathe arises, take a deep breath in, hold, and release. Connect with the stillness within, reaching profound states of meditation.


Imagine your soul absorbing this newfound energy, penetrating every cell. The soma within you charges you, aligning your inner and outer worlds. Take a deep breath, squeeze, and hold, visualizing this energy ascending into your midbrain, illuminating your higher self.


Release the energy upwards, envisioning it shooting into your higher power. With heightened energy and awareness, move forward, aligned with your truth. Take a deep breath, squeeze, and hold, carrying this activated energy of gratitude into your daily life.


As you return to the present, notice how this energy positively influences your surroundings. Carry forward this sense of gratitude, spreading love, positive energy, and peace wherever you go.
