I breathe into a state of all-encompassing gratitude.
As long as I have breath, I have life. As long as I have life, I am grateful. I draw in deep, calming breaths that spread through my body, enlivening my senses. I breathe in gratitude for all I see, hear, taste, smell and touch. I am grateful for my loved ones, my home and for the myriad blessings in my life. With my next breath, I dive deeper into gratefulness, breathing in gratitude for my oneness with God. I am grateful for who I am in God—whole, beautiful and irrepressible. With an energizing, amplifying breath, I breathe out any disquiet in my soul. Poised in an elevated awareness of gratitude, I give thanks for all experiences: the physical and the mystical.
I give thanks to you, O Lord my God, with my whole heart.—Psalm 86:12
