Mettâtations and Compassion.
"I don't know your full story, you don't know mine, but you and I are the same.
You are my brother and my sister, and I am yours. May you be well. May you flourish."

The most important thing you will do today is to breathe. Air is literally energy that you are bringing into your body to live. It is your connection to all things. There is a miracle in every breath, and it's quite amazing when you think about it.

Compassion is the third of the foundations of Mettâtations. Our hearts should be filled with Compassion and Love for ourselves and for others. We get wrapped up in our own lives too much sometime and we forget that one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves and to others is our Compassion. We must love ourselves. We must love others. No one lives alone, we all suffer. We should be grateful for every day, every blessing, and every challenge which helps us grow. Our hearts need to be open and we should be thankful. We need to start by being more compassionate with ourselves. You are a sacred being.

Part of the core of every Mettâtation is some variation of the following:

"May my heart be filled with Compassion,
My heart is filled with Compassion,
The world is filled with Compassion."

Part of what Mettâtations are all about, is filling ourselves and others up with more Compassion. Each Mettâtation is specifically designed to help open ourselves to remember to be compassionate to ourselves and to others. To be grateful, and to honor and respect ourselves and others. Compassion is a calming, renewing, and a healing practice.

The world is not perfect, people are not perfect. So, we must learn to forgive and forget and to honor and respect all people and all things. We can have compassion in any difficult situation, when we don't take things personally, and remember we are all the same. Compassion, along with Love and Peace is available to us every second of the day. Cultivating Compassion is a practice which can have a tremendous positive impact. Smile and feel grateful. Forgive yourself and be compassionate. Be grateful, and be at Peace. A Compassionate heart will help you be happier, healthier, and live a more fulfilled life.

with Compassion,

Steve

Mettatations actually have goals: to help you increase your happiness, mental and emotional health, and to help you have more positve emotions, relationships, and meaning in your life.

The Foundations of Mettatations

Mettâtations are the integration of several practices into new healing, restorative, and energizing practices. To understand the practice fully, you can examine the individual and integration of the different components listed below. Mettatations are powerful and multi-faceted practices directly connecting the internal (mind, body, spirit), external (others/world), and universal; with the past, present, future.


Positive Psychology

Positive Psychology

How we use our mind to help ourselves flourish is the most important thing to master. Happiness only comes from within our mind. What we think about things is more important than the thing that happens. Let's actively build positive thoughts and turn them into positive actions.

Breath

Breath / Air Energy
Pranayama

Air is literally energy. We take the breathe, the air for granted. The air we breathe holds the energy of the universe. We can bless the air we breathe and use it to heal and rejuvenate our body and mind.

Touch

Touch

Touching is essential for normal human development. Yet, in many cultures we don't touch. Unfortunately, touch, like love, can be misunderstood and make people uncomfortable. Yet it is an extremely powerful energy source that we can use to heal and energize our body and mind.

Movement

Movement

Movement during Mettâtation. Movement helps us to directly access the energy in our body so that we can replace it with positive energy. Movement is encouraged in Mettâtations. Move and do what makes your body feel good!


Meditation

Meditation

The meditation part of mettâtation practices is different. Mettâtations have a goal. Instead of trying to create space from our thoughts, we are actively creating positive thoughts and energy within our mind, body, and hearts.

Yoga

Yoga

Mettâtations fall under the larger 'Yoga' umbrella. It is a combination of the branches of Yoga into a new practice with the added advantage of integrating the latest benefits of positive psychology research. Move, Breathe, Live Well.
