The 1st Jhana is the first level of High Yoga (Divine Union) with the Higher Self, also known as Samadhi or absorption in the superconscious level of your being.
Fully developed self-love is key to not only being able to receive love from others, it is also key to being able to love others.
We tend to project onto others, that which we don’t love about ourselves. This helps to resolve this.
Fully loving our entire being, liberates us into true freely flowing self-expression. Through positive self-embrace and positive self-appreciation, our most positive self can be honored and empowered to be fully present and participating in life in the best way.
Think of a dear one whom it is easy to feel love for.
Now, with some light attention on the center the chest, feel, generate and send love to them.
Next feel, generate, and send love to your physical body and first chakra (energy center) at the base of the spine.
Feel, generate, and send love to your etheric/vital body and the second chakra in the sacrum.
Feel, generate, and send love to your emotional body, and your solar plexus chakra (in the abdomen) and heart chakra (in the chest).
Feel, generate, and send love to your mental/intellectual body and your throat chakra at the base of the neck and your forehead chakra.
Feel, generate, and send love to your overall personality identity (I am) and your forehead chakra.
Feel, generate, and send love to your higher self/soul, the source of your virtues and positive qualities and consciousness, and forehead chakra and crown chakra.
Feel, generate, and send love to your inner spirit, the source of your aliveness, and crown chakra.
Feel, generate, and send love to your entire individuality and all your chakras;
- Spirit aliveness, crown.
- Soul virtues, consciousness, positive qualities, forehead and crown.
- Personality identity and forehead.
- Mental/intellectual and forehead and throat.
- Emotional and heart and solar plexus.
- Etheric/vital and sacral.
- Physical and base.
All at once. Intensifying the love to the highest ecstasy pervasive throughout your entire individuality as you can. Letting it grow and deepen and saturation all your cells and every nook and cranny of your being. Let it deepen, deepen, deepen.
Finish with imagining having this all-pervasive self-love in all circumstances in your life.
Slowly opening your eyes, bringing this newly cultivated self-love to your open-eyed state and your life.
