If you are struggling with something in your life right now, try a little self-compassion meditation.
Find a comfortable place to sit or lay down.
Take a couple long, slow, deep breaths and close your eyes.
Place your hand on your heart.
Repeat the following phrases to yourself.
“I am having a hard time right now.”
“Everyone feels this way sometimes.”
“May I be kind to myself in this moment.”
“May I give myself the compassion I need.”
Repeat them a few more times.
Then allow yourself to receive the compassion.
When you are ready open your eyes.
This is a meditation I learned from Lisa Abramson. You can find her on Insight Timer.
