Sending Love game

Step 1:Entering into retreat: Choose someone to whom you want to send love. Then sit comfortably and focus on holding this person in your heart for three minutes. Use your awareness of your breath to keep you focused.

Step 2: For the next 15 minutes, visualize sending love to this person in a variety of ways or choose the way that works best for you. Imagine this person surrounded by white light. Imagine you can send loving messages to this person and that they will receive them. This is L-mail (love mail)as opposed to e-mail. Radiate loving energy from your heart directly to their heart. Visualize this person as happy and feeling loved. See them in your mind's eye doing what they most love to do. Imagine their energy field radiating and pulsating with golden light.

Step 3: Returning to the world: For the last 2 minutes, focus your awareness on your own breathing. Be unattached to any outcome of your sending love.
