A simple act of love
This past Friday I spoke at an event in downtown Los Angeles. Over 125 people attended. The beauty of this event for me was in the diversity of the people who attended.
I was asked to speak about happiness. And what I shared was that happiness means 20 different things to 20 different people. It’s all in how you define it. There’s no right or wrong answer. Then it’s about living in alignment with what you believe happiness to be with your thoughts, words, actions and choices.
One person shared it means freedom. Another person shared it’s about living in alignment with your purpose. And I shared it’s those moments where we feel love.
I then guided the group in a connection exercise where they paired up to eye gaze with 3 different people and through the gaze thank each beautiful soul for beings. There were lots of smiles and laughs. Despite some people feeling shy, the energy in the room was uplifted by these moment of connection where love was exchanged.
I closed my talk with a love and kindness meditation where everyone held hands. And the smiles were there too. In the love and kindness meditation we sent love out into the world. To family, friends, strangers and even those who challenge us. We sent our love to the Earth, the waters, seeing the entire Earth light up with our love.
Not only do the people who receive love receive a healing and even a protective layer around them from an energetic standpoint. But the person sending the love also receives a healing too.
Studies have shown that people who do love and kindness meditations benefit in many ways including anti-aging. Researchers have found that those who practice this specific meditation experience lengthening of the end of DNA strands called telomeres, which are shortened during the usual aging process most people are familiar with today.
At the end of this blogpost is a script if you wish to guide yourself in a love and kindness meditation.
After the event I received this email from a woman who attended:
You can view more pictures and a video of part of the meditation here >>> https://www.instagram.com/s/aGlnaGxpZ2h0OjE4MDEzNzI2NjMwMDc2Mzk4/
I feel her response was inspired by the love she felt, received and gave during my talk and the guided experiences.
You can also experience this during the personal sessions I offer both online and in person where the energy healing portions are a dose of love and you are personally guided through a love and kindness meditation to really feel the love.
