HuffPost Meditation Center: A Valentine's Day Meditation

Meditations exist in all manner of forms and disciplines, ranging from simple relaxation to deeply spiritual practices. Our goal with the Huffington Post Meditation Center is to provide you with not only information and inspiration but with actual experience on a wide variety of meditation options that will allow you to find a meditation approach that works for you.

In today's meditation, Donna D'Cruz, “conscious” entertainer, designer, performing artist and meditation instructor, opens with a special meditation for Valentine's Day. The focus for Valentine's Day is a unique twist on the what the day has come to mean: before showering your love and affection on someone else (which is a decidedly cool thing to do every day!), how about starting with a simple focus on loving yourself first?

It has been said that we should give from our overflow and Donna's meditation today begins with the premise that the more loving we have inside, the more we have to share with others.
