Whether you believe it now or not, you were born with a purpose and have tremendous value in this life.
The world we live in works the way it does because of the various types of people that live within it. We each need the other to be responsible for realising our own individual purpose and worth.
Why? Because when each of us are happy and at ease, the world around us becomes a far more harmonious and joyful place to be.
So in taking just a few moments each day to focus on building positive feelings towards yourself, you massively change your experience of life.
Not only does self love meditation create a far more joyful experience for yourself, it does the same for everyone you connect with.
Another wonderful bonus you’ll benefit from is that others become more positive towards you and more comfortable than ever before.
Inspire them and share with them your new ingredient to life.

Meditation is one of the best gifts you can give to your yourself and if you wish to try out the below self love meditation, we highly recommend that you remain undisturbed throughout. This goes for any meditation practice.
Your ability to keep focused is key here and though your mind might stray, with practice, you’ll become an expert in your own right. The more focused you remain, the deeper your meditative experience. The deeper the meditative experience, the better the results. By holding your focus effectively you will go deeper and thus bring yourself the best change possible for your time and energy.
So let’s begin your self love meditation in 6 EASY Steps:
Time to get really comfortable. Make sure the temperature of your chosen place to meditate is warm enough.
It’s absolutely okay to sit, recline or even lie down.
- 1. Close your eyes and begin to focus on your breathing.
With each steady breathe in, you invite deeper and deeper levels of relaxation and calm into your body.
With each steady breathe out, release any tensions of the day.
Continue like so until you reach that place within, where peace and calm reside.
- 2. When you reach your place of peace and calm, bring your attention to your heart and just become aware of it.
You heart is the key to your life and the more you pay attention to it ( listening out for any messages coming through ) and effectively act upon what you hear from it, the more life begins to flow in a way that is perfect for you and your purpose.
- 3. At this point, truly give thanks to your heart for bringing whatever it was to your attention.
Show your heart the utmost kindness. If any feelings of guilt arise that leave you sorry for having not taken better care of it, forgive yourself. Do though, make a conscious effort to pay better attention to it from this moment onwards. Gratitude and forgiveness are important stages of this process.
- 4. Now, look within your self. As each moment passes, meditate on the variety of ways that make you feel special about you.
Focus on each one as it arises and offer your heartfelt thanks for these unique and valuable qualities, that have always been there.
There is no-one on this planet just like you and that alone is worth celebrating. As you really spend some time meditating on these wonderful gifts of yours, remember too that these gifts become our gifts as you share yourself with us all.
With each ‘special quality’ that you recognise and give thanks for, you will become aware of a definite shift in the way you perceive yourself.
With practice, you will notice the love you have for yourself rising higher than ever before. The more you practice self love meditation, the more you will feel yourself becoming more and more lovable and worthy of love as a result.
All of these moments of truly loving and appreciating yourself will inevitably build on top of each other, reinforcing your newly discovered wonderfulness!
- 5. Just pause now.
Thoroughly immerse yourself in these wonderful qualities of yours and enjoy the sensations, thank yourself for bringing them to your attention and for enabling you to connect with them in such a way that you are able to enjoy life more fully with each breath that you take.
Appreciate yourself for just being you. Unique with all of your strengths and and all of your weaknesses. They all make up a wonderful you.
Savour these feelings of heightened self-esteem and never ever mistake these for being egotistical.
- 6. Close your self love meditation by simply opening your eyes while bringing yourself and all of that relaxation and good feeling back into the present moment.
Feel free to carry these feelings with you throughout the rest of your day, whatever you do and wherever you go.
