“What happens when people open their hearts? They get better.” 

-Haruki Murakami

In today’s meditation, we discover that when you activate a positive belief, your cells get the message. By intending to heal, you do heal.

We proceed with small steps by taking a few moments every day to be kind to yourself, forgive yourself, repeat your belief in healing, and enjoy your recovery.

CENTERING THOUGHT: I activate my vision of healing every day.

SANSKRIT MANTRA: Om Ram Ramaya (I bring balance and strength into my life).

1.) Write down three positive beliefs you hold about yourself, then list one way you can act upon it. For example, if you have a good self-image, take a step to improve someone else’s self-image.

I am worthy of my dreams & desires. Everything that I need to make these dreams and desires manifest is already within me. I love myself and I accept my flaws. I am complete and the perceptions that others put into the world hold no merit to the truths that I know to be evident for myself and my vision. I can act upon these beliefs by simply being a good person and reflecting the love that I possess internally as opposed to passing judgement on others.

2.) Identify three negative beliefs about yourself, then list one thing you can do for each belief that would help to diminish and heal it. This should be a step you can realistically and easily take. For example, if you hold the belief that you are unlovable, consider a way to act friendlier and show others your positive feelings toward them, which is how lovable people behave.

Three things that I can work on are my tendencies to procrastinate, moments where I hold judgment over others, and the “audacity” that I possess that I was made to and will do great things. I know that my procrastination can often times derive from fear which aligns with the notion of “who do I think I am, that I can change the World?!” In this I can in turn judge others but as I rise in my audacity as opposed to shrinking in it, I can see and respect the audacity in others.

3.) Write down three ways you can be easier on yourself instead of self-judgmental. For example, you could stop running yourself down in front of others.

  • Allow myself to make mistakes.
  • Reflection on the things that I’ve been through that will allow me to appreciate today.
  • Stop feeling guilty when I take moments to rest or be to myself.

4.) Daily Reflection:

Healing is an ongoing process. One that I’ve come a long way with, but have yet to master….
