The meditation portion of this track is a little over 43 minutes.
There are a few minutes of silence at the end to allow you to sit quietly for a few moments before moving into your day.
As you listen to this meditation, silently recite each phrase over and over as you allow the positive feelings associated with the experience of those phrases to arise. Try as best you can to embody those feelings, to feel them in your body.
I encourage you to listen to the Webinar about Metta Meditation first for optimal benefit.
ABOUT METTA MEDITATION
Metta is a Pali word which means "loving kindness".
This meditation is the namesake for Metta Pets.
Metta meditation practice supports other mindfulness practices beautifully. Metta Meditation is considered by many to be one of the most transformative single meditation practices when done on a regular basis.
If you connect in a positive way to this meditation, challenge yourself to listen to this once daily for 30 days and see what positive changes you notice. Keeping a journal of your experiences can be a helpful way for you to track your progress in finding more inner peace and contentment.
In this practice, we recite specific phrases which carry good wishes while purposefully inviting positive feelings to arise and allowing ourselves to experience them.
Metta Meditation utilizes four concepts that can help increase our well-being. In this practice we are getting in touch with the qualities of equanimity, loving kindness, compassion and joy which support the capacity for basic (and extraordinary) human kindness.
With consistency, repetition and gentle daily effort, this practice supports an increased sense of peace and well-being. As we learn to express kindness and compassion toward ourselves, through practices like Metta Meditation, our capacity to experience and share positive emotions increases. This improves our ability to navigate challenging situations with more peacefulness and balance.
We are, then, able to offer more to those we care about. We are able to be better pet parents, doctors, caregivers, spouses, siblings, friends, and community members.
In mindfully attending to our own well-being, we are better able to make a positive difference in the world.
