How to use a compassion mantra for mediation:

Do you have a hard time getting your mind to be quiet down during meditation? You are not alone, and that tends to also be one of the main
reasons why people give up on meditating. But meditation comes in many forms, so while it may not be possible (yet) for you to sit still for an extended period of time, without racing thoughts, you can try repeating a mantra to assist you along the way.

Today, I particularly wanted to share with you a compassion mantra that I have been using during some of my meditation sessions. It showcases the power of self-compassion as well as fosters compassion for others, without actually focusing on a particular person or a group of people.
This can be particularly helpful when you first begin working with compassion meditation – especially if you are having a hard time forcing yourself to send positive thoughts to particular people or you are drawing a blank who to send positive vibes to. Instead, use this general mantra, and allow whatever name or image of a person or being that comes to mind to flow through your thoughts, without hanging on to any name or image for an extended period of time.

 

May I Find Peace in my heart this day May all Beings Find Peace in their heart this day

May I Find Peace in my heart this day
May all Beings Find Peace in their heart this day

 

You can use this mantra while sitting still, quietly, or in conjunction with mala beads. I personally enjoy the use of mala beads, when using this or any other kind of mantra, but they are not necessary for this or any type of meditation or mantra-work.

 

Question:

Have you tried compassion meditation before? If so, what is your experience with it?

  3. I like the quotation about peace. I believe if you have peace in your heart, you are able to do thinks effectively.

  4. I haven’t tried compassion meditation and I didn’t even know that was a thing. I meditate on the word of God and life generally. But I’ve always thought compassion is something people ought to have as humans.
