Metta Meditation



The Metta or Loving Kindness meditation is my absolute favorite meditation. I recorded the below meditation a few years ago but have never shared it here on my site. I still do a very similar meditation regularly, though now I begin with offering Loving Kindness to myself first, then move to one I love, the one I have complicated feelings for....etc.


It is my favorite of all meditations because it gets to the heart of what I find most valuable in this world, love, compassion, and kindness. When you can feel in your heart love for all other beings it is easy to understand how we're all connected, that we have a responsibility to ourselves and the world to lead with love.


Of course, this is easier said than done, but, that's why it's called a practice. None of us gets it right 100% of the time, so we keep practicing so it happens more often than not.


I hope you enjoy this meditation. Tell me in the comments below if you tried this one and/or about your favorite meditation.

As a Bible-believing and practicing Christian, my definition of meditation is thinking about and reflecting on the Holy Scriptures... the Bible. So, during my devotional time, I pray, read the Bible, and think about the teaching I just read, and see how I can apply it to my life.

I've tried to meditate on and off over the years but finally gave up and just do prayer and soaking.

Hi Rachel! I would say those are their own kind of meditation 😃 Attempts at meditation can be so discouraging when we’re led to believe that “good” meditators sit still or can make their minds go blank but meditation isn’t good or bad, it just is. One of the reasons I love it so much is because my practice always just meets me where I am that day, no judgement, no expectation. I’m glad you found what works for you, that’s what is most important.
