If you feel like sending some lovin' vibes 'out there', here's a Loving Kindness Meditation to try. Enjoy 😘


LOVING KINDNESS MEDITATION


Get comfortable, either lying down or sitting. Close your eyes.

THINK OF A PERSON CLOSE TO YOU WHO LOVES YOU. It could be someone from the past or the present; someone still in life or who has passed. Imagine that person standing in front of you, sending you their love. That person is sending you wishes of happiness, health and harmony. Feel the warm wishes and love coming from that person towards you.Now imagine that you are surrounded on all sides by all the people who love you and have loved you.

PICTURE ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS AND LOVED ONES SURROUNDING YOU. They are standing sending you wishes for your happiness, well-being, and health. Bask in the warm wishes and love coming from all sides. You are overflowing with warmth and love.Repeat silently inside your own head:


May I be Happy, may I be healthy, may I live in harmony (Repeat three times in total)


NOW SENDING LOVING KINDNESS TO A PERSON THAT YOU LOVE, perhaps a relative, partner or a friend. Begin to send the love that you feel back to that person. Just like you, this person wishes to be happy and have a good life. Send all your love and warm wishes to that person. Repeat the following phrase, silently inside your own head, whist visualising that person standing in front of you:


May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you live in harmony (repeat 3 times)


SENDING LOVING-KINDNESS TO A NEUTRAL PERSON NOW - an acquaintance, neighbour, or someone else that you see around but do not know very well. Visualising the person standing in front of you. Send all your wishes for well-being to that person, repeating the following phrase, silently inside your own head:


May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you live in harmony (repeat 3 times).


SENDING LOVING-KINDNESS TO SOMEONE THAT YOU MAY NOT GET ALONG WITH. It may be someone that you have long-standing difficulties with. Call the difficult person to mind and be honest about what you feel. There may well be feelings of discomfort. Take this opportunity to wish them well, repeating the following phrase, silently, whilst visualising them in front of you:


May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you live in harmony (repeat 3 times).



SENDING LOVING-KINDNESS TO ALL YOUR NEIGHBOURS, visualising them in front of you, in a ball of people that surround you:


May you be happy, may you be healthy, may you live in harmony (repeat 3 times)


Take a deep breath in. And breathe out. And another deep breath in and let it go. Notice the state of your mind and how you feel after this meditation. Taking your time to come back to the surface of your consciousness. When ready, open your eyes and enjoy a nice, big stretch.
