Happiness begins with our self. Accepting who we really are and being proud of whom we become.

Speak and Believe
I learned that I must continue to speak life and great things over myself . I am love , peace , Joy , a giver , not afraid , no worries, not doubting and I don't live in fear. There's no worry, lack or doubt. I am at ease , I am anointed, God love will shine through me like a beacon of light and I will bless all those whom I come in contact with so they can know God

Simply allowing those lovingkindness to yourself... as well as others
Like my last session, the three attributes of well-being was imagined by me as a radiantly glowing, peaceful floating light. I also thought of my three and possibly only friends, that I have given them to because they absolutely deserve it. :) I had no trouble or shame accepting this light; who wouldn’t want to? It’s a wonderful gift to achieve to be happy and living your full potential.

I learned that
I can change my sense of contentment by verbalizing my desire for wellness in others, asking myself how can I act to improve the lives of others with loving kindness; then I look to myself and offer that same desire, then smile and receive it!

Rid me of my stinking pity thinking ..
I am only as peaceful and content as the feelings I choose to give weight and attention and energy to. I must continue consciously choosing which 'wolf' to feed inside and avoid the trap of negative despairing self talk which results in continued discontent and unrest at my very core! Loving myself is not easy some days it takes more work and patience but slowly the reality of my work is emerging even only a week after tragedy in my relationship life. Thanks to my higher power for holding me while I cannot hold myself!

I learned how important it is to really love yourself. We get so busy that we can forget to take time for ourselves, and that's so important. It's also important to love others in the process and just remember how great you and your friends/family are❤️

If you want it, you got it
it’s all a matter of focus and taking your mind to certain place. happiness and “feeling good”, we all hold the power. It’s all in our mind. It’s only if we want it.

Still Struggle with Others
The loving kindness wishes for myself were fine... I know I’m hard on myself, and it’s good to be reminded that I really am blessed. But I struggle to wish good things on others I know because it feels ... like I’m somehow shirking my duty to make them happy at my expense? Am I suffering from long-term Christian guilt when I resent having to make others happy?

Goodwill with intention
I can practice deliberately wishing peace, health, love, ease toward myself and visualizing doing so for others. It takes a passive sense of goodwill and puts my energy into it, feeding back into myself

Do unto ourselves as we do unto others
Being kind and loving towards ourselves enables us to bestow the same to others.

Love without guarantee and be the change you wish to see
If everyone felt love for themselves as well as projecting it towards others the world would be very different. Not everyone does this but be the change you wish to see and hope for a day that you can see the manifestation of that, and that all came because you changed yourself. Love without the guarantee of it being returned, love because you love someone not because you want to be loved back, that's what love is to me.

I rediscovered today
I learned that I can no longer be bitter towards myself, my life, my choices, or my experiences and I can’t change how other people think, feel or the choices they make. .Love myself. Love life. Love people. Be care free. Be happy. Be kind. I am the key to my own happiness, my own success.

Share your blessings
Wishing good to come for everyone and everything around you including yourself to take a moment and realize how lucky you are and appreciate how good your life is and wishing these kind blessings to people who may be stressed or struggling in these categories where you may not be and to share your smile with those who surround you

This is always an important meditation for me as I am very critical. I always feel a little lighter after coming away from this, no matter if I have anxiety or not. Definitely recommend. These are good mantras to say everyday.

Loving kindness for yourself and others
I noticed how calming it felt to have space between the words with the 7 minute session. This is a great meditation to start my day and I’m thinking it would be equally good to end my day. I got up and took the pups for a walk first thing. I noticed the sounds of nature were much nicer in the open than I found in the meditation yesterday! Perhaps I should lower the sound. Lol

Loving-kindness
I felted an embraced loving-kindness with understanding and appreciation for others and myself while meditating with this session. These key things matter most to have a healthy, happy, peaceful relationship with ease. It's a humbling and valuable feeling to touch one another with Trust, Loyalty and Lovingkindness. May I continue to ask and see these things in my life and others lives? May I positively continue to decree that this type of affection is felted from the heart with understanding and appreciation and a gentle touch of Lovingkindness? May I continue to be Thankful for the Kindred Spirit of Lovingkindness? Thank You!

Loving Kindness
Loving kindness is the antidote to hate. Wishing others to be safe, happy, healthy and at ease is a sure way to bring it back to ourselves as well. It’s more than just telling someone you love them. To me it feels like love in action when I wish loving kindness upon myself and others. For me, sending out love is more powerful than receiving it, it’s almost like when you’re waiting for a person to take the wrapping paper off a gift and you’re twitching with eagerness because you know it’s something that they have been wanting and will love. So I’m sending out my love to everyone today. I feel it radiating out from my soul! Namaste my friends! ❤️

Feeling good
Lately I have been able to listen to more positive meditations because of how I am feeling, and this one helped me realize how amazing this feeling is so I want to be a reason why others can feel the way I do! Today has been such a good day and this is exactly what I needed!

Wishing people good wellbeing
I just finished working out, hanging out with friends, and yogo. Once I was done with yoga I listened to this. I fell so great right now. “Lovingkindness for ourself and others” thought me how to never be scared to wish someone good health and well-being in a normal conversation. I think now I am going to say I wish you good health and prosperity from now on. ❤️

Sharing the light and joy of the Christmas season. This year my presence had to be enough. With gratitude I accepted gifts from others. A smiling & happy baby. Honest conversation with my brothers. Surprised parents. The best hugs from my favorite aunts.

A Favorite
This meditation/affirmation is one of my favorites, that I had forgotten to bookmark. I just discovered that I had done this one over a year ago. Interestingly, I had just been thinking about this affirmation this morning. I stumbled upon it accidentally when trying to test the volume bar. Thank you, Kathy! You reunited me with an old favorite. 😍🙏♥️🙏😍

Wishing Well For Others
I’m often self-focused during these sessions. While I don’t think that’s a bad thing, it’s good to project well being and good for others too, to encourage a stance of patience and empathy towards others.

I’m in complete awareness of the beauty of loving kindness and it’s power
When I embrace and embody loving kindness I feel the shift of energy towards a lighter and more powerful state of being. I’m more open to receiving loving kindness from others as I express it towards towards myself as a staring point.

Morning Affirmations
The cycle of giving and receiving starts off with simple affirmations that actually expand from thought to spoken words to actions which set the course of the day. It’s a choice then how to face the day, whether rough or smooth sailing.

Morning offering
Offering wellbeing wishes & affirmations to others allows me to relinquish the responsibility or ownership of their actions and mood. Offering kindness to others is reciprocally offering it to myself.

Offering...
In any given moment, the cycle of receiving and giving is happening all around us. In this metta meditation, we give an offering of well-being to ourselves and others. Doing so, we set a wonderful tone for our day. Settling into an upright position, I began to follow Kristy’s guidance and give myself offerings of well-being. Saying these beautiful words to myself, feelings of love began to sprout in my heart. Bringing to mind someone that I care for, I thought of my friend Lisa. As I said these beautiful words to her, I visualized her beautiful face smiling. Having increasingly feelings of love sprouting in my heart, I realize that I am the embodiment of love. As I reflect on this, I make the intention to do actions throughout my day that show kindness, compassion and love to myself and others. Namaste 🙏🏻❤️☮️

I learned that it is easy and important for yourself and loved ones to offer random acts of love and kindness. I noticed that I smile when thinking of being kind and loving to a friend or loved one for me the reason of being kind and loving with not ulterior motives. I noticed smiling can be easy when dwelling on being kind.

Loving Kindness for Ourselves and Others
I just woke up, so I’m not sure what feelings I have other than anxiety at the moment, but with this meditation and journaling, as well as yoga, I hope to steer myself toward more positive thoughts so that my hearts slows and I stop shaking. Nightmare disorder and seizures means that I usually wake up from awful feelings of anxiety and fear. I’m trying to move my mind away from that constant cycle of deep unpleasantness, but I also understand that it takes time and consideration. I know none of this will happen literally overnight, but this is still me trying to maintain the autonomy of my body and not allowing these feelings to be so pervasive that they affect my health any more than absolutely necessary. This is part of that.
