Loving Kindness Meditation

June 15, 2012


From Ed and Deb Shapiro, Huffington Post

This meditation opens your heart by developing loving kindness.

Start by breathing into the area of your heart, softening and relaxing with the in-breath, and letting go of tension on the out-breath. Hold your name or an image of yourself in your heart and silently repeat:May I be well, may I be happy, may I be filled with loving kindness. Do this for five minutes or more.

Then, silently wish all beings be well, all beings be happy. If you are at work you can spend a few minutes repeating the names of the people you work with and wishing them happiness and joy. On your way home from work reflect on your day and generate loving thoughts to all those you met. At night, think of each member of your family and wish them wellness and happiness: May they be well, may they be happy, may they be filled with loving kindness. Do this for five or more minutes.
