It is said you can search the entire universe looking for someone more worthy of receiving your love than you - and that person is not to be found. This simple lovingkindness practice helps you connect to your own desire for happiness and well-being.

Know yourself
You can’t think kind, happy thoughts for other people until you learn to do it for yourself. So love yourself!

It is all so important to love yourself, and this meditation was great for me because it makes me appreciate my day after listening to, when we acknowledge those we love and care for it brightens ourselves.

Letting go
We sometimes hold on and want to believe others so badly that we lose track of ourselves in wanting to believe their truths. Trusting yourself is key and letting go of whats not necessary on your journey is very important as you are the key...

Appreciate myself more
I shouldn't be criticizing myself for where I haven't been or for what I haven't done, but how far I've come and how things take time.

saying your own name

I need to be more mindful of my needs.
My body tells me things and I need to listen. It’s telling me to love myself more so that I may love others more effectively.

It not Selfish, Really
I often feel so guilty about feeling bad, but feel selfish that I want to feel good when I know others have worse struggles. It’s not selfish, though, because I have to help myself before I can truly help others.

Lovingkindness for me
I could use a little more compassion for myself. Not the same as feeling sorry for self

Happiness
I deserve happiness and love. It is in our nature to long for happiness, and my body is the medium to which I can attain happiness. I must treat it with kindness and compassion.

Peace
Feeling safe and protected are fundamental to wellbeing. It’s okay to wish for peace for all despite the strife others are going through in the world. It is a wish, a desire, a goal.

I saw myself growing looked down at my body and acknowledged the woman I needed to become. I felt that I was not ready for Love because big things are following me on my path to success!

Loving kindness for Self
Just what I needed to hear this morning. It is reassuring to hear that self happiness is natural without being selfish. So much emphasis is placed on self centeredness...but that is not self happiness. 🙏🏻

I learned that opening up love and respect for yourself really makes a difference in the way you view the world and certain events that happen.

I noticed that to be happy you have to love and enjoy what you are doing, after all you will do that for a great part of your life

Prayers
I say these phrases when I say my prayers at night and sometimes I look for signs that my God has heard me. But in today’s world, it almost seems hypocritical and selfish to ask for myself when there is so much that is broken outside of my own personal bubble. 💙

I wish I could put this meditation on Social Media for all to hear. I want so bad for peace, love, & happiness in this world. I know this meditation is for me but it’s for all as well. Everyone needs to hear it. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you, Aura! Have a nice day, Everyone!😀

Not a fan
This meditation I did not connect with at all which I feel it was from the voice. The voice was very monotone.

Tonight we extend well wishes to ourselves first and then to all people. The positive statements are simple but powerful. Wishing all, happiness, safety and peace.

Lovingkindness for self
Again, I struggled with this one. I simply can’t imagine feeling the deepest happiness, so I never wish for that. Maybe practice in this one will help.

Happiness is...
Allowing myself to experience the good wishes I desire for myself! I’m great at supporting others, especially my intimate loved ones (wife, children, other family, etc.), but I need to do more for myself. I DO TRY! But I feel like I usually fail...I think it’s just part of my makeup to be so hard on myself! I’m quite down on me often.

Allowing myself to be deserving of happiness

Desire for Happiness
As I repeated these positive affirmations, I was reminded by another wonderful meditation called, Mindful Affirmations for Love and Relationships that I have been listening to daily for 13 days. Everyone has a deep desire for happiness. We have looked for it in buying materialistic things, by going on vacations or even by searching for it in others. We go through life saying, ‘I’ll be happy when...’. In fact, I remember thinking how happy I would be when I landed my environmental technician job. Granted, I was happy and felt much more at peace because I had more money! A lot more! While it is true that all these things or people will give us some happiness and peace, it is only temporary. In my situation, once the newness of my job wore off, I was realizing that the happiness within myself began to wear off as well. It took me until recently to find out that my deepest happiness and peace can only be found Within Me! Wow! What a True Awakening! Indeed, our deepest happiness and peace isn’t found in things, places, others, or in my case, even jobs. It can only be found in the stillness of our Higher Being! The sooner we figure this out, the sooner we can tap into these wonderful feelings and begin to share it with the Universe! By opening my heart and allowing myself to feel these affirmations, I opened the door to experience the deepest happiness and peace within myself. Afterwards, with a smile on my face, I gave a shout out to every Being in the Universe wishing them happiness and peace! To my Aura Tribe...May You Have Happiness and Peace! May You Be At Ease! 😃☮️🙏🏻❤️

Wishing...
Happiness, Peace & Ease to all! What a great mantra to meditate on! Thanks Cherish for shouting this out for all to hear (& sharing it on here). I could feel my vibratory rate increase as I repeated the phrases until I became electro-happy man sending parts of my excess happy vibes out to the world to share in my peaceful joy and help other tobe at more ease... ❤️☮️🍀

Highly recommended
My intention is patience. If I cannot feel safe&protected, healthy and strong despite chronic pain, if I may know the deepest happiness and peace, however may I be patient with myself and others? This is a wonderful meditation. I think it works be impossible not to feel awesome afterwards. Peace Out

My intention is patience. If I cannot be safe and protected, healthy and strong, and know the deepest happiness and peace, I will never be patient with myself or others. I think it would be impossible not to fee great after thus track.

I felt myself lift up today repeating the phrases mentioned. It gives me a sense of hope that maybe I will be happy again and I do deserve it.
