THE HEART

To improve the quality of your life it is important to have compassion for yourself.

When you feel the need …

PAUSE

PUT A HAND ON YOUR HEART

TAKE A FEW DEEP BREATHS

Vocalize. “Suffering is real, it is hurtful and I give myself permission to feel it.”

Vocalize. “This is suffering. Suffering is part of being human. Let me love and accept myself, just as I am.”

Make a gratitude list and include 10 things you are grateful for, be specific.

Speak to your heart with the following words. ‘May I be happy, may I be well, may I be filled with kindness and peace.’

Show appreciation.

  1. Call to mind things you have done out of good-heartedness. Find joy in those memories.
  • Speak to you heart. “May I live in safety, may I have mental happiness, peace and joy. May I have physical happiness and freedom from pain.”
  • Repeat the phrases so they fall into a rhythm that is pleasing to you.
  • Each time you notice your attention has wandered, be kind to yourself and let go of the distraction. Come back to repeating the phrases without judging or disparaging yourself.
  • After some time, visualise yourself in the centre of a circle composed of those who have been kind to you or have inspired you because of their love. Experience yourself as the recipient of their love and attention. Hear their phrases of kindness.
  • To close the session, slowly repeat the phrases of kindness softly and then gradually let go of the visualisation.
