CULTIVATE KINDNESS, LOVE, PEACE AND JOY
Metta is a Pali word which means "loving kindness". Metta Meditation has been the topic of much research and is often referred to as "Loving Kindness Meditation". Metta Meditation is considered by many to be one of the most transformative single meditation practices when done on a regular basis with proper instruction.
This can be another helpful meditation tool on your Path of Progression to greater self-knowledge and transformation, supporting you in learning to focus, master the mind and generate positive inner states.
While Metta Meditation is a traditional Buddhist practice used to cultivate altruistic feelings, its effects transcend religion and spiritual beliefs. In concert with your personal healing work, the energetic support you receive with activations and lineage initiations, and your daily practices, Metta Meditation can facilitate positive emotional states that will support you as you navigate your Path of Progression and the opportunities for growth that you encounter along the way.
The state of Universal Love, which can be cultivated with regular practice, brings you into a gamma brainwave state. This is the brain state associated with peak creativity and performance, mystical transcendence, unity consciousness and optimal well-being.
Metta Meditation utilizes four concepts that can help increase your well-being and inner peace. In this practice you 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 you learn to express kindness and compassion toward yourself, through practices like Metta Meditation, your capacity to experience and share positive emotions increases. This improves your ability to navigate challenging situations with more peacefulness and balance.
In mindfully attending to your own well-being, you are better able to make a positive difference in the world.
In this practice, you recite specific phrases which carry good wishes while purposefully inviting positive feelings to arise and allowing yourself to experience them using the power of your focus and imagination.
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.
