Breathing Forgiveness, Love, and Peace

Close your eyes and concentrate on your breathing.
Breathe in and breathe out.
Breathe in and breathe out.

As you are concentrating on your breathing,
bring to your awareness that which is causing you to suffer.
Bring to mind the source of your suffering.
Bring to mind the anger connected to your suffering.
Bring to mind the sadness connected to your suffering.

Imagine gently placing all of your suffering inside the very center of your being,
in the center of your body.
Your suffering is a the very center of your body.

As you are breathing, imagine the air you inhale
swirling around that suffering,
that suffering that is at the very center of your being.
Feel the air that you inhale swirl around your suffering.

With each breath you take in,
imagine the air swirling around that suffering.
Breathe in the air of forgiveness.
Imagine all of that forgiveness swirling around your suffering.
Every breath you take in is a breath of forgiveness.

Forgiveness moving through your suffering.
Breathe in the air of forgiveness.
Forgiveness coming to your suffering.

Now, with each breath you expel,
imagine the air moving out from your suffering.
It is the air of forgiveness.
You are now breathing out forgiveness.

As you continue to breathe out forgiveness,
make a smile of forgiveness.
Breathe out forgiveness.
And smile.

Now with each breath that you take in,
imagine the air swirling around that suffering at the very center of your being.
Breathe in the air of love.
Imagine love swirling around your suffering.
Every breath you take in is a breath of love.
Love moving through your suffering.

Breathe in the air of love.
Love coming to your suffering.
Now with each breath that you expel,
imagine the air moving out from your suffering.
You are now breathing out love.

As you are breathing out love,
make a smile of love.
Breathe out love,
and smile.

Now, with each breath you take in,
imagine that the air is once again swirling around your suffering.
Every breath you take in is a breath of peace.

Peace moving through your suffering.
Breathe in the air of peace.
Peace coming to your suffering.

Now with each breath you expel,
imagine the air moving out from your suffering.
You are now breathing out peace.
As you are breathing out peace,
make a smile of peace.
Breathe out peace,
and smile.

You are breathing in forgiveness.
You are breathing out forgiveness.
You are smiling the smile of forgiveness.

You are breathing in love.
You are breathing out love.
You are smiling the smile of love.

You are breathing in peace.
You are breathing out peace.
You are smiling the smile of peace.

There is forgiveness with our suffering.
Forgiveness.

There is love with our suffering.
Love.

There is peace with our suffering.
Peace.

Forgiveness.
Love.
Peace.
