Loving Kindness Meditation for Survivors of Brain Injury

Posted on March 17, 2015 at 9:25 PM

In honor of Brain Injury Awareness month I wrote a Loving Kindness Meditation for survivors and their families. I hope you find inspiration, joy and hope in reading it.  A suggestion: copy and post it so you can say it for yourself every day or at least a couple days every week.

Loving Kindness Meditation

for Survivors of Brain Injury


May I regain health after suffering a trauma.

May I be safe wherever I am in the world.


May I live at ease with my new transforming self.


May I always find my way on the new roads I travel.


May I find balance to calm my nervous system.


May I make peace with the critic in my mind.


May I find sparks to light my memory.


May I find the stars that guide me in the dark of night.


May I find lighthouses and be calm in a storm of grief.


May I find wonder to guide me on my new journey.
