Curious About What The Gratitude Meditation Could Do For You?

So, what on earth is a Gratitude Meditation, I hear you ask? And how could something so innocuous, seemingly naive and idealistic possibly help if you’re feeling really stuck in your life; when it's all too painful and you just don't know what to do anymore?

Indeed, when things are going badly for you, the concept of 'gratitude' will hardly be the first thing to come to mind!

You're more likely to be consumed with emotions of uncertainty, insecurity, confusion; feeling lost; overwhelmed; probably angry, if not at least frustrated, and wanting to yell and scream at the world.

Ironically, it's precisely when your life seems to be falling apart the most, that this apparently bland technique for life can offer a self help program with an amazing 'oomph' to turn things around.

The first reaction people usually have to hearing these sort of statements is a sense of affront; indignation or disbelief... 'how could you possibly expect me to feel grateful when my life is in a serious melt-down?!'

Nevertheless, doing the Gratitude Meditation can become a powerful turning point in a Journey of pain and suffering.

Despite the possibility of feeling quite annoyed at these seemingly inappropriate comments... just try to hang in here for a while. Perhaps – right at this moment – you're feeling stuck in deep suffering of some sort.
