Adjusting Metta Phrases

It is possible to adjust the sentences to meet one’s personal needs and phrase sentences such as

  • May I be loving and embracing
  • May I love and accept myself as I am in this very moment
  • May I enjoy good health
  • May I be safe and protected from external and internal injuries and dangers
  • May I grow in compassion
  • May I grow in Love
  • May I be humble
  • May I be patient/ May I grow in patience
  • May I be at peace
  • May I be happy
  • May I live with awareness
  • May the doors of my heart remain open no matter what

If you can ask a metta facilitator for advise on designing particular metta phrases it is wonderful.

    It’s okay for you to adjust the Metta sentences to meet your personal needs. In my opinion, hundreds of years old traditional and ‘conservative’ metta’ prayers are still ‘working’ 🙂
