This is a traditional meditation allows us to open ourselves up and send good wishes to ourselves first and then to others.  We practice this meditation because many times we may not treat ourselves as wholesomely as we should.  We may also see others in a negative light.  Practicing sending well wishes to ourselves and other allows us to create room for more acceptance.

In this meditation we may also practice noticing when our egos get in the way of sending well wishes to others, in particular those that are challenging to us.  In this case we practice sending love despite our reluctance.  The more we practice the more we realize that sending everyone love does not impact ourselves.  Everyone’s light can shine equality.
