Divine Love Meditation
The following guided Divine Love meditation is adapted from Activating Bliss Brain Meditation and Eco-Meditation by Dawson Church. It combines EFT, visualization, heart coherence and affirmations. For more background, see Dawson Church’s video.
Tap gently on the side of your hand and imagine all stress leaving your body. Feel total relaxation and peace. Tap through all the points as all stress and tension leave your body and you feel relaxed and at peace.
Stop tapping and relax your hands. Close your eyes, and let your tongue rest loosely on the floor of your mouth.
Feel your hands. Feel your feet. Feel the space inside your hands. Feel the space inside your feet. Feel the space inside your legs, your arms, your torso, your neck and head. Feel the space inside your whole body. Picture a big empty space behind your eyes. Picture a big empty space between your eyebrows. If thoughts arise in your mind at any point during the meditation, just let them go. Watch them drift like clouds across the sky, without attachment.
Breathe slowly, for 6 seconds per out-breath, and 6 seconds per in-breath. Count to 6 silently each time you breathe in, and each time you breathe out. Imagine your breath flowing in and out through your heart.
Imagine a huge beam of love and light pouring in through the top of your head. This is God’s love for you and all humanity. Love and life energy pouring in every moment, filling your body, mind and energy field, and especially your soul.
As the flow of God’s Love pours in through the top of your head, imagine it energizing all your body’s energy centers, especially your heart. It is filling your soul displacing anything that is less than divine and loving.
Notice the color of your heart energy and now send a beam of that energy to a person or a place that makes you feel wonderful. Enfold that person or place with your heart energy beam and feel all the compassion and love that connects you with that person or place.
Now expand that heart energy of Love to embrace every being on earth and in the universe. Imagine your heart energy radiating out from your heart to send love and compassion to every creature – all living beings.
Now narrow your heart energy of Love and focus it again to just that one person or place that makes you feel wonderful.
And now detach your heart energy beam from that person or place and bring it completely back inside your own body.
Now affirm: With God’s Love in my soul, my heart energy feels good. My heart center feels good and I now allow the sense of well-being in my heart center to permeate my entire mind, body, and energy field. I feel all the gratitude, love, compassion, and joy in my heart energy field. I celebrate all the gratitude, love, compassion, and joy in me, in this new-born version of myself, in this emotional, physical, mental, and spiritual state.
Feel the breath flowing in and out through your heart and with the next three breaths bring your attention fully into the present moment, into your environment, into the here and now.
With the third breath open your eyes and look around you and notice what time of day it is. Notice the smallest object in your environment. Notice how good your body feels. Notice the biggest object in your environment. And give thanks knowing that any time you choose, you can ask for God’s Love and move into this new and growing version of you that’s filled with gratitude, compassion, love, and joy.

Optional Addition for Self-Healing Before Coming Out of the Meditation
Affirm: I feel compassion for all the versions of me that still suffer. There are parts of my mind that suffer, there are parts of my body that suffer, there are parts of my history and past that suffer, and there are parts of my energy field that suffer. I now send this compassionate energy from my heart center to all those parts of me that suffer. Those parts of me that suffer mistake themselves for reality when in fact my reality is as this version of me in bliss, in compassion, in love.
I sit now in this positive emotional state, centered in my heart and I send compassion to all the parts of me that suffer. I send compassion to all the versions of me that suffer. I send compassion back through the timeline of my life to all the parts of me that suffered. I sit now in the part of me that is pure positive emotion and I now send compassion to those parts of me that suffer.
As my compassion touches those parts of me it releases their suffering. As the compassion of the universe touches those versions of me it releases their suffering. The compassion within me resonates with the compassion in the universe. And as this energy touches those versions of me that suffer it releases their suffering. I now know myself as a version of me beyond suffering. As a version of me filled with love, gratitude, joy, and compassion. And from this version of me I extend compassion to all the parts of myself that suffer.
As I extend my compassion to those parts of myself their suffering is released.
Take a deep breath. Notice the big empty space behind your eyes. Notice the breath flowing in and out through your heart. And as you focus on releasing the suffering self, tap gently on the side of your hand.
Affirm: I release the suffering self and I step into my joy. Parts of me are suffering. And as I step into my joy, as I hold those suffering parts in compassion, their suffering is released.
Tap on the remaining points:
Tap on the top of your head, “Suffering released.”
Tap with two fingers where your eyebrow meets the bridge of your nose, “Suffering released.”
Tap on the side of your eye, “Suffering self released.”
Tap under the pupil of your eye, “Suffering self released.”
Tap under your nose, “Release.”
Tap under your lower lip, “Release.”
Tap below your collarbone where it meets your breastbone, “Release.”
Tap under your arm below your armpit, “Release.”
Tap one last time on the side of your hand: “I now release the suffering self and I step into compassion, joy, gratitude, and love.”
Ease out of the meditation as described above.
