The workplace is often the toughest place to engage in your spiritual practice.
With tons of personalities and high stress due to the demands of day to day existence, the workplace can not only become an impossible place to find peace, but it can also become a place that breeds toxicity.
While we can’t be responsible for the behavior of others, we can be responsible for our own.
One of the practices I love to do especially when dealing with difficult or stressful situations and people, is the Love & Kindness meditation.
I know, I know you don’t have time for it, your boss would kill you if they found you meditating somewhere instead of at your desk.
I get it, but the cool thing about this practice is that you don’t need to be anywhere. And unless your boss is somehow neuro-linked to your brain, it’s safe to say you can do this without anyone even knowing you’re doing it.
Here’s how it works:
1. Start by calling in the white light to surround you with positive energy, this is always a good practice, so negative entities can’t attach to you (more on that in another post).
2. Say (out loud or in your head) I send love and kindness to…
3. Offer love and kindness to everyone and everything in your life including businesses, projects, jobs, anything you wish to have the best possible outcome for. Be sure to include those who don’t wish you well and those you consider enemies. This is most important! To change this negative vibration between you, you must offer this mantra to those who impact your life negatively as well as positively.
4. Close by offering love and kindness to yourself. This is the most important part. After lifting everyone else’s vibration don’t forget to lift your own!
You will notice that the energy around you changes almost immediately. Even if you don’t see it in others right away, you will see it in yourself.
I didn’t believe in the power of this meditation but after watching it heal relationships I thought lost, I am officially a believer.
Don’t forget to do it at night before bed, while thanking the universe for all the blessings in your life.
After a few weeks of offering love and kindness in the workplace, you’ll be surprised at how your job can become a place you can work in peace.
