Journey to Manifesting Grace Through Gratitude
Before we begin, here are a few tips on how to get the most out of this experience. Give yourself plenty of time to complete this journey, my advice would be no more than one day at a time. You’ll find further reading and daily journal prompts when you click “READ MORE”. It’s optional to journal but I find that it helps to deepen the flow. If you prefer to skip the reflection prompts then simple just write down what comes to mind after you complete your meditation. Most important, be open to the new experience and approach it with a relaxed state of mind.
