Everyone wants to be loved. There is no one who does not want love. The same is true for happiness. Here are some daily practices for love and happiness.

In this guided meditation led by Sean Fargo, we are invited to remember our shared humanity – that all humans yearn for love and kindness. It is sometimes hard to connect with this knowing due to any walls we have built around our hearts.

This simple practice is a moment to step away from the judgments we hold – about both ourselves and about others – so that we can tune back into this deeper knowing.

Practices for Love and Happiness

As we practice loving kindness and compassion exercises, we harness a sense of peace and contentment within. Love and happiness truly go hand in hand. Why? Because any place where we restrict offering ourselves or another unconditional love forms a blockage or barrier within us.

When we are contracted or blocked in this way, the unconditional force of life is unable to flow through us freely. Through loving kindness exercises, we soften the heart and unleash a greater capacity for kindness and tenderness.

The Benefits of Loving Kindness

Heart-centered meditation practices and mindfulness exercises have a variety of benefits. Some of the effects of these practices include (but are not limited to):

  • Increase our sense of love, joy, gratitude, and positivity
  • Decrease anxiety, stress, and depression
  • Reduce headaches, migraines, and other pain
  • Increase emotional intelligence, compassion, and empathy
  • Reduce personal bias and judgment
  • Improve our relationships
