Conscious Living Workshop: From Forgiveness to Freedom: Judy Becker, my intuitive energy healer, invited a cozy roomful of us to practice living with an open heart. Guided through meditations, we learned forgiveness stems from expectations: oftentimes we have expectations of how people should behave. If we communicate our expectations and they are not met, we accept and love the person for who they are; this does not translate into being a doormat, we can express ourselves then love from afar. Loving is done for ourselves, so our hearts shed the burden of anger. The methodology of change is: observe, accept the person for who they are (with all their limitations), forgive them for who they are, and develop compassion for them. Compassion and anger cannot exist in the same heart, ergo Metta Meditation.

Prepare yourself by sitting in a comfortable position. Take three long, deep breaths, imaging the breath moving through the center of your chest - in the area of your heart. Picture your heart as a beautiful, welcoming room and see yourself sitting within this space. Say the loving-kindness phrases: May I be happy, May I be healthy, May I love myself and others with a heart that's fully open, May I be at peace. Imagine someone that's very easy to love, invite that person into your heart: May you be happy, May you be healthy, May you love yourself and others with a heart that's full open, May you be at peace. Imagine someone you feel neutral toward, invite that person into your heart: May you be happy, May you be healthy, May you love yourself and others with a heart that's full open, May you be at peace. Imagine someone with whom you are having a conflict, Invite that person into your heart: May you be happy, May you be healthy, May you love yourself and others with a heart that's full open, May you be at peace. Invite anyone else into you heart, imagining all beings and animals everywhere and repeat. Once done, I felt thoroughly serene; I hope you will too!
