What are your favorite phrases for loving-kindness meditation?

Do you always use the same ones, or do you change them from time to time?

I often use 'May I/you be: loved, safe, happy, at peace.' These sentiments come most naturally to me when feeling into this sort of meditation, but of course when using a guided meditation, I can tune into other word choices.

How about you? Any go-to phrases or sentiments during this type of meditation?

Mine are simple yet great.  "I deserve love, the world deserves love"  "I am loved" Peace be to all human-kind and animal and all that are living and non living for all things exist and then are non existent."  Love and understanding to me and all who are connected to me"  Nameste,  Om mani pad me hum.

I just shared another simple, loving phrase in another thread, but I'll share it here as well:

"I love you; I am here for you. I love you; I am here for you. I love you; I am here for you."

That seems like it could be quite effective. It's so simple yet to the point. I'm going to try using these tonight. 🙂

The other day I led a mindfulness meditation for a group online and included a metta meditation to help root us in the heart during these uncertain times. I used:

May you be supported.

May you be well.

May you be loved.

May you be at peace.

      I feel present, calm and grounded when I'm focusing my breath and also some thoughts just run out here and there but I'm ok with that just let it be and I can feel my eyes are very tired that I don't even really care about it. I think I will have a good sleep tonight. 
    • Hi everyone,  I am Thuraya. A Palestinian educator who has been looking for different ways to practice mindfulness and help myself know how to let go. I am using this platform to get more into practical performance of mindfulness and the correct implementation of its techniques 
    • Hi everyone, I'm so glad to be here participating! A few months ago I finished a midfulness training. Time goes by very fast and there is always a lot to do in my job; but I want to continue cultivating mindfulness and teaching it;  for me, it´s  a challenge to be able to communicate in English(another reason to be here).  When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut 🙂 and also a truck driver. Later, as a teenager, I wanted to be an engineer. And after the experiences life has given me, now I want to go slowly and slowly. I loved music, and I had a CD of music of Buddhist monks, I liked to listen to them, it relaxed me, I didn't know I was going to meditate 🙂 .   Greetings to all!  
    • Hi Wahby17,  Welcome! What a Story to behold; one never knows what Comic Figures can be powers of example, especially ones who Meditate!
    • Hi, I'm a university student who has been meditating his entire life for multiple reasons. It might sound stupid but as a child I loved reading comics, and one of my favorite characters was Iron Fist. Basically he meditated a lot, so out of habit I did too in an attempt to imitate him, and bit by bit I got more and more interested as I saw results both mental and physical. I researched more and more and became more aware of myself. I'm glad I can now join communities with people who can share their different experiences on this topic.
