Key insights from Deepak Chopra’s Guided Meditation On Gratitude

  • All experience is either a sensation, perception, image, feeling, or thought that arises in our awareness, known in our awareness, and subsides in our awareness.
  • Letting go is freedom, holding on causes suffocation.
  • Asking “What am I grateful for” opens the door to abundance consciousness, allowing sensations and thoughts to arise.
  • Bringing awareness to joyful and playful moments, especially from childhood, can help in cultivating gratitude and a positive mindset.
  • Just rest in being, rest in awareness, exist as existence. Awareness being, this is fundamental awareness to be aware of being aware.
  • Resting in awareness is also called waking up from the projections that recall mind, body, and the world, just be aware of being aware.
  • The power of words and their interpretation can bring healing when we pay attention and listen to what we hear, think, and feel.

Guided Meditation: A Journey to Awareness

Step 1: Find Your Seat

Sit quietly in a comfortable chair with a backrest. Ensure your feet are firmly planted on the ground, grounding you to the earth. Rest your hands open in your lap, palms facing up, signifying openness and receptivity. Close your eyes to eliminate external distractions and begin to observe your breath.

Step 2: Observe the Breath

Focus on the sensation of your breath entering and leaving your nostrils. Notice the coolness as you inhale and the warmth as you exhale. Understand that each breath is a fleeting sensation—arising, being experienced, and subsiding. This mirrors the nature of all experiences in life—they come and go, and we cannot hold onto them.

Step 3: Accept the Nature of Experience

Acknowledge that no experience, whether a thought, feeling, or sensation, can be grasped or held onto. All experiences arise and subside in the present moment, like waves in the ocean. Holding onto experiences, even pleasant ones, leads to a feeling of suffocation. Letting go, however, brings a sense of freedom and ease. Continue to observe your breath, allowing it to flow naturally without trying to control it.

Step 4: Bring Awareness to the Heart

Shift your awareness from your breath to your heart center. Mentally ask yourself, “Who am I? What am I?” Do not seek to answer these questions. Instead, allow yourself to settle into a state of being, simply observing any sensations, thoughts, or feelings that arise.

Step 5: Explore Your Identity

Reflect on your sense of self. Are you merely your changing body, your fluctuating mind, or your transient experiences? Or are you the silent witnessing awareness in which all these changes occur? Contemplate the nature of your true self, the unchanging observer of all experiences.

Step 6: Discover Your Deepest Desires

Pose the question to yourself, “What do I want? What is my deepest desire?” Do not try to force an answer. Instead, allow any sensations, images, feelings, or thoughts to arise spontaneously. Pay attention to what emerges from the depths of your consciousness.

Step 7: Reflect on Your Purpose

Ask yourself, “What is my purpose? Why do I do what I do? How can I serve others? How can I express my unique skills and talents in service to my fellow beings?” Let these questions resonate within you, and observe any thoughts or feelings that surface. They may provide insights into your life’s purpose and direction.

Step 8: Practice Gratitude

Ask yourself, “What am I grateful for?” Allow any sensations, images, feelings, or thoughts related to gratitude to arise naturally. Recognize the abundance in your life and how these feelings of gratitude open the door to a more conscious and fulfilling existence.

Step 9: Deconstruct Your Identity

Mentally repeat your full name a few times. As you do this, bring into your awareness all the experiences and associations tied to that name—your worries, relationships, responsibilities, and current life situation. Let your mind fill with these thoughts and images.

Step 10: Simplify Your Identity

Now, drop your last name and repeat only your first name. Recall joyful memories, especially those from your childhood. Allow yourself to relive moments of joy, wonder, and playfulness. Let these positive memories fill your awareness, bringing a sense of lightness and happiness.

Step 11: Embrace Pure Being

Let go of your name altogether. Simply say “I am” without attaching any memories, experiences, or beliefs to it. If you wish, you can replace “I am” with the mantra “uh-hum” and repeat it silently for a couple of minutes. When thoughts, sensations, or images arise, gently return to the mantra.

Step 12: Rest in Awareness

Let go of the mantra and simply rest in pure awareness. Exist as existence itself, being aware of being aware. Recognize that awareness is formless and timeless, yet it is the source of all experiences. It allows you to experience shapes, colors, sounds, and sensations.

Step 13: Awaken to Your True Self

Realize that you are not the roles you play in life. You are the witnessing awareness in which these roles come and go. Rest in this awareness, waking up from the projections of mind, body, and world. Be aware of being aware, knowing that this is your true nature.

Step 14: Conclude the Meditation

When you feel ready, slowly bring your awareness back to your physical surroundings. Gently wiggle your fingers and toes, and when you’re prepared, open your eyes.

Practice this meditation regularly. It will transform your days and ultimately make your life much better. Embrace the peace and clarity it brings, and let it guide you to a more fulfilling and aware existence.
