Self Love Meditation
If you’re ever feeling really down about yourself, especially your body, close your eyes and imagine that there’s a closed up lotus in your heart.
Take in a deep breath, and with your breath, imagine you’re pulling sparkling white light into your body. Imagine the light flowing through your veins, trickling from your lungs into your arms, your legs.
Exhale, imagining that you’re exhaling thick, oily black smoke.
When you inhale, think the words “Love within,”
When you exhale, think the words, “Shines without”
With each inhale, you bring more light into your body, and with each exhale of the black smoke, your lotus begins to glow. The glow is faint at first, but with each exhale, it get bright, the petals fuller, until the lotus is a blinding white and blossoms.
Feel the warmth of the glow from the blossoming lotus, feel the peace and love within you reaching out, making your skin warm, making you glow.
