When you're faced with everyday pressures and stress, look into the handbag of your life and dig out some things for which you could be grateful right then.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) November 23, 2011
The stress of holiday hassles can be reduced by practicing gratefulness and thanksgiving, an essential part of living a spiritual and more joy-filled life, according to Lysa Rohan of Dallas, Texas, the creator of the Lysa Rohan Gratitude Meditation(SM) and the Lysa Rohan One Minute Meditation(SM).
"The One Minute Meditation is the perfect way to disengage from the stress of the holidays and get re-centered in only a moment, and it also can improve your outlook on life throughout the year," explained Rohan.
A free Gratitude Meditation and One Minute Meditation app is available through the Apple iTunes App Store or at http://www.LysaRohan.com for use with an Apple iPhone, Apple iPad or Android smart phone. More than 5,000 people already have downloaded the app since it became available a few weeks ago.
"It's a simple way to practice gratitude, and when you do that you begin building the foundation of a joy-filled, happy life," said Rohan. "It means coming from who you really are, your Divine essence, the seat of true wisdom: your heart."
Rohan, who has a Master's degree in art history, began studying the Christian Bible, Hebrew Bible, the Tao Ti Ching, the Qur'an, the Dhammapada and many other religious and spiritual texts over 30 years ago. She developed the Gratitude Meditation as part of an overall practical approach to spiritual living, and now is finishing a book to help others create a happier life that starts by harnessing the power of gratitude.
"When you're faced with everyday pressures and stress, look into the handbag of your life and dig out some things for which you could be grateful right then. It's a great way to lift your spirits and change your world view," she explained.
"To begin coming from your heart, you need only to stop and pay attention to those little prompts you receive, those hunches, inklings nanosecond flashes of insight. That's Spirit, God or whatever word fits best for you, sending you little messages. Practicing gratefulness and thanksgiving, as often as you remember, will strengthen your heart connection to Spirit, to God, that small quiet voice. Saying thank you to others will strengthen your heart connection to them."
