“Let us always meet each other with a smile, for the smile is the beginning of love.” – Mother Teresa

You can start your day with a sweet practice of coming from the heart:

  • Find a comfortable place to sit
  • Take 3 soft breaths and place your hand on your heart.
  • Start repeating silently or outloud the name of your spiritual connection, your higher power or however you would describe your spiritual life. You may even use the word “Love” if that works for you.
  • Repeat for at least 10 times
  • Then envision the closest people in your life; Partner, family, parents, etc. You may even say their names as you envision them with your hand on your heart. Feel the love and warmth that is in your heart for them, soft breaths continuing…
  • Envision your friends, those who you turn to for strength, truth and support, saying their names, staying with each one as long as you want.
  • You may want to envision pets that you love and who love you and bring joy to your heart.
  • Envision your coworkers who you spend much time, saying their names and setting the heartspace to have an open, comfortable and supportive workday with them, soft breaths….
  • Then start to take in those who you share your world with who you don’t know well, setting an intention for them to have a heartful day.
  • As we started with hand on heart and are broadening the circle, keep broadening to your geographical area, and spreading wider and wider as you take in other states, countries, and the planet, as you envision the oceans and bodies of water and the life forms living there, mountains, plains, rainforests and so on…

When you feel complete, notice how your heart feels under your hand, notice that your face and your body are softer, and notice that your heart is more open and accessible to you and others.
