I usually listen to this meditation a few times. It is an area I have struggled with. Lovingkindness towards others has been difficult for me in the past, especially the part where we visualize someone we have difficulty with. Last year, when I got to this meditation, the resentment level was high.
This time – not so much. I was able to visualize the person, offer lovingkindness and felt my body relax. The knot in my stomach lessened. My shoulders relaxed. It is freeing.
