Meditation by Orin and DaBen
I take a deep breath in,
imagining that I am breathing in light.
As I breathe out, I release any energy
I may have taken on that is not mine.
I call back to myself
any of my energy
I may have scattered
out in the universe,
feeling myself growing stronger
and more centered as I do.
I go within to experience my inner self.
I find that place of deep inner calm,
that center of serenity within myself.
I am aware and alert, yet calm, balanced,
and at peace with myself and the world.
I sense my higher self and soul
surrounding me with their light.
I am now standing in the
light of my soul and higher self.
I think of a person I love very much,
a person who fills my heart with
love and compassion
whenever I think of him or her.
I let my heart fill with love
as I think of this person.
I radiate love to this person.
I imagine now that I have that same feeling
of love and compassion for myself
as I have for this other person.
I am a treasured person, my own best friend.
I know that loving myself
is making a commitment
to giving myself what I need
to be strong, alive,
and fulfilled as a soul and spirit.
As I think of my day ahead, I think of something
to do that is nurturing and loving to myself,
something that is possible to do today.
As I think of my day ahead,
I release something that
is not loving to myself.
I take a moment to congratulate myself
and appreciate all that I have created.
I think of at least two things
I did in the last year
that I feel good about.
I imagine speaking
loving words to myself today.
I tell myself how well I am doing
and how far I have come.
I use positive, uplifting,
and encouraging words
and focus on all the good things
that are happening in my life.
As I think of an area of my life in which
I have been hard on myself,
I now tell myself good things
about this area.
If any bad feelings come up,
I send love to them and
continue telling myself good things
about this area.
I ask my soul or higher self
to give me a personal affirmation
that I can say to myself
to remind me to love and honor myself today.
