The former Hole star, who was recently the centre of controversy after shedding 52 lbs, earlier stated that she wanted to sell off most of Cobain’s possessions.
"I chanted two hours tonight and really thought about where the money should go," People quoted Love, as stating on her website.
Love is making up her mind on whether to carry out a private sale or an auction, and whether to use the earnings to set up a foundation.
Love wants to "do good works with the proceeds, works that would create artists and promote them to stop bullying, to deal with self-destructive fantasies and suicidal ideation at a young age."
The 42-year-old also said that her chanting has given her a mission in life and was not just limited to selling off her husband’s assets.
"My list takes three pages – everything from material things to alleviating one person's misery each day and ... to understand why I was born to these parents,” she wrote.
"To really change things and be a real philanthropist in a serious way. ... If one cares deeply for the charities they are serving it can only be a good thing,” she added.
On Cobain's possessions, Love wrote that she would sell them preferably to someone who is "genuinely a Kurt fan who ... would play the guitars and use things and would value his stuff incredibly."
