Giving Love a Place to Live: Opening the Heart Meditation

I listened to the Opening The Heart Meditation from Sharon Salzberg today and found it very powerful. I was instructed to imagine myself in a ring of the most loving beings, and to send good wishes (lovingkindness, metta) to myself. I did feel undeserving at times but listening helped me to slow down and feel myself in the day I was living. I did feel the energy of love and I liked Sharon’s description of the skin being “porous,” allowing the loving energy in.

When I become a receptacle for love, love becomes real; has a place to live; is embodied.

My heart warms in my chest as it wakes up.
