Day 28: Practice Loving Kindness:
DBT takes a lot of cues from Buddhism – especially around mindfulness practices. This DBT skill includes a traditional Buddhist prayer. You can either use this or use a prayer about kindness from your personal belief system.
Do something kind today for yourself and three kind things for others. It can be smiling at someone in the grocery store, or opening the door for a mother with children, or calling someone to cheer them up.
The Buddhist Loving Kindness Prayer:
May I be at peace.
May my heart remain open.
May I realize the beauty of my own true nature.
May I be healed.
May I be a source of healing for this world.
May your heart remain open.
May you realize the beauty of your own true nature.
May you be healed.
May you be a source of healing for this world.
