Gratitude Meditation

Ingredients:

2 drops Green Mandarin

1 drop Marjoram

2 drops Cedarwood

How to Use this Essential Oil Blend

#1: Set a timer for 10-30 minutes.

Timekeeping can be a mental distraction. 

So, to keep your focus on your meditation, set a timer with an alarm. 

And until the alarm goes off, dedicate your full attention to the meditation. 

#2: Set the blend diffusing and sit in a comfortable position.

Find a private, quiet, and comfortable (not too hot or cold) place, where you can diffuse your blend and meditate without disruption. 

As soon as you have the blend going, sit so that you are comfortable, supported, and upright (you may prefer sitting cross-legged on the floor or in a chair with your feet flat on the floor).

Once you are seated, take in and release a few deep breaths, savoring the blend and trying to release any tension you are holding in your body. 

#3: Practice gratitude.

This can be done in a number of ways: 

  • You can use a mantra, such as “I am grateful for _________” filling in the blank each time with a different person, place, thing, or event that you are grateful for. 


  • You can consider one element/area of your life at a time, all the goodness therein, and all that had to happen/be in order for you to have that part of your life. 


  • You can look at the irritations in your life and find ways to put a grateful spin on them. For example,” My arm aches. But I am grateful that it is fully grown, with all of its tendons, muscles, and bones present and working in good order. And that I can still use it to play tennis, fold laundry, etc.”

You can follow a guided meditation from Youtube or a wellness website.
