Gratitude Meditations for Juneteenth and Beyond

64 minutes

The Covid-19 pandemic. Police Violence. White supremacy and terror. Dehumanizing events. Micro-aggressions. Systemic racism. Everywhere. Every day. We, as African Americans and other people of color, face constant threats not only to our physical safety but also to our mental health and security. You might then ask: "What do I have to be grateful for?" Answer: A lot! And this is not to diminish the real threats and actions that we are hearing about and seeing every day. But gratitude is not about them. It's about you. It's your superpower that can help you to see the good in your life and attract even more good. Gratitude also positively affects your physical and mental health in very real and tangible ways. In this unique and practical "holiday" episode, Robin will discuss the importance of the "gratitude habit" then guide you through several meditations to help you tap into your gratitude superpower. As this show is being released on the Juneteenth holiday, Robin will also discuss the history of this holiday and how newly-freed enslaved African Americans expressed their gratitude on this "Black Independence Day."  How can you feel and express your gratitude on this important holiday and every day of the year? Listen and do the meditations. Claim and use your gratitude superpower today. The elders and ancestors would be proud!
