Rawness
Getting comfortable, I brought awareness to my breath. As I witnessed this body breathing, I brought awareness to my body. I noticed areas of soreness and areas of tension. By bringing awareness to these areas of soreness and tension, an opening of softness became apparent. Softening in these moments, I brought awareness to my heart and envisioned a green glow of light radiating. I brought all of me into my awareness. The good, the bad and the ugly. As I looked into my eyes and recited loving kindness phrases, I sensed my own rawness. Compassion and acceptance was felt in my heart. Then I turned my attention to someone whom I love, looked into their eyes and repeated loving kindness phrases. Sensing her rawness, my love for her grew. I turned my attention to someone whom I’ve had difficulties with lately. It happened to be the same person. As I continued to look into her eyes and recited these loving kindness phrases, I sensed her rawness again and my compassion for her grew. What a beautiful experience. Turning my awareness towards this body breathing, I was back in the room I was in. I noticed my heart full of loving kindness. Thank you, Vanessa! Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️
