    Hi LifeFlow Support Folks,

    Lately I have reflected alot upon PollyAnna's posts and now with NewYorker's post today highlighting Micheal's Gratitude Video it just seemed time was ripe to act.

    I have slowly over time realized that I have ignored a hallmark need for my LifeFlow sessions. That is performing the Gratitude Exercise each day. I cannot think of a better time than after my LifeFlow track has gently ended. The problem is, I would really like to have a three minute silence before the Gratitude music starts and also have the music "preset" in volume to be very slightly lower in its volume. I could then load this track onto my USB and have the required silence after the LF then have the gentle sweet music start. Any chance that you folks could provide this mp3 to the folks on PM? I also noticed today that there are two versions of the gratitude music with one of length 4:15 and one of length 6:18. If we could please have (I am asking for the moon here) 2 separate available downloads one with 3 minutes silence then the 4:15 track and one with 3 minutes silence then the 6:18 track THAT would be smashing!!! :D

    If only one download link could be made available the longer 6:18 music track with three minutes of silence prior to track start would be best.

    What do you folks think???


    shine on :) :)

    I think it's a great idea Jim and I'm sure Michael or the team will oblige :)

    I truly believe the gratitude exercise is extremely powerful and was immensely impressed when I found it on Discover Meditation. It's a great enhancer to meditation.

    I've been thinking quite a lot lately of perhaps suggesting that it may well be beneficial for some people to listen to this prior to meditation. The reason being, it may be helpful for some people who have suffered trauma or suffer from anxiety and depression to enter into a meditative state in a more peaceful, relaxed and loving way.

    Just a thought :)

    Once the gratitude habit is formed, it's amazing how many things you actually realise you are grateful for and how often you notice them on a daily basis - I really love it and look forward to hearing how you feel too.

    I think you're spot on recommending the 3 minutes silence and then lowering the volume for the following music ;)

    I wish you an abundance of peace and joy on your continuing journey :) :) :)

    I agree with you Pollyanna. I think gratitude is a powerful way to begin a meditation session. I like to thank all the people and circumstances that have brought me to the spiritual path and to remember that there are so many beings who don't have the knowledge or opportunity to develop in the way most of us have here in this forum. This can be very motivating because it can remind us that if we develop spiritually we can help others much much more effectively! :)
    And of course it's good to end this way as well, giving thanks and sharing the good vibrations with others.

    Thanks to all of you who share your thoughts and experience here. :)
    May we all find peace and joy
    Bhavya

    That did'nt work....

    Hey Guys,
    I tried a workaround by loading the 5 minute meditation timer mp3 (CD4 Track 2,mp3) from the free Discover Meditation course onto my USB. I renamed the track so that my stereo would access this mp3 after my LifeFlow track finished. My thoughts were that the intro "This is the 5 minute meditation timer" before the silence would not be too "jarring"....

    boy was I wrong....the volume of the voice is a real shock to hear right after level 6......it was amplified due to the "sensitive" ears one has after a LifeFlow track....the heart took a few quicker beats...OUCH :( plus the volume of the gratitude music could be about a third lower...

    Anyhow by any chance is there any feedback from support on the possiblity of this mp3 to be made available?????? It would really be a sweet way for some LifeFlow users to finish their session with the gratitude music piece...

    thanks in advance for any thoughts


    shine on :) :)

    Hi all,

    I agree and think this is a great idea, so here are both tracks with a 3 minute silence before they begin and I have also lowered the audio so they do not startle you to much hopefully.

    Thanks for the great suggestion :)

    Hi Grant,
    I loaded the longer version silence/gratitude music onto my USB..........my LF6 session today was perfect. The lower volume was really ideal. You did a great job.

    Thank you.


    shine on :) :)

    Add my thanks as well!

    Would also like to add my thanks to those of the rest of the group. I was stopping the tracks manually to give myself the few minutes time. This way I won't have to do that anymore and 3 minutes is perfect!

    Hello Pollyanna and Bhavya,

    I love to do this too, begin and end each meditation session with thoughts of Gratitude. In one of his books Eckhart Tolle says that if you make no other changes to your Life, the most simple and best thing you can do is to start every day repeating 'Thank You, Thank You, Thank You'. I have used this as a mantra during meditation on the odd occasion, it feels incredibly powerful doing this, helping to both lift and open you up to the meditation.

    Much love to you both :):):)
