Spread Love Meditation
It can feel overwhelming when there are a lot of bad things happening in the world and people disagreeing on how to handle them. It is hard not to feel helpless or hopeless. During these times I use a beautiful visualization that I want to share with you.
- Close your eyes.
- Take some deep breaths through your nose.
- Then let your breath relax.
- Picture your heart center.
- Imagine love and compassion around your heart as light.
- Pick a color for the light.
- Let that light grow to encompass your whole body.
- Let it grow to encompass your house or apartment building and all of the people in it.
- Visualize it expanding to your neighborhood and city.
- Then your state and country.
- Then neighboring countries.
- Then the whole world.
- Visualize the whole world in your loving and compassionate light.
- You are sending your positive and loving energy to every person, place and creature.
- Open your eyes and continue on with your day or keep them closed and go to sleep.
