(I love Deepak Chopra and what the Chopra Center stands for  and that is why I copy their messages  to my blog so that I can encourage any readers  to link onto the Chopra Center website  in order to get in touch with their spirit and find inspiration as I do)

 

 The Law of Intention and Desire:

Inherent in every intention and desire is the mechanics for its fulfillment. Intention and desire in the field of pure potentiality have infinite organizing power. When we introduce an intention in the fertile ground of pure potentiality, we put this infinite organizing power to work for us.

I will put the Law of Intention and Desire into effect by making a commitment to take the following steps:

  1. I will make a list of all my desires.
    I will carry this list with me wherever I go.
    I will look at this list before I go into my silence and meditation.
    I will look at it before I go to sleep at night.
    I will look at it when I wake up in the morning.
  2. I will release this list of my desires and surrender it to the womb of creation, trusting that when things don’t seem to go my way, there is a reason, and that the cosmic plan has designs for me much grander than even those I have conceived.
  3. I will remind myself to practice present-moment awareness in all my actions.
    I will refuse to allow obstacles to consume and dissipate the quality of my attention in the present moment.
    I will accept the present as it is, and manifest the future through my deepest, most cherished intentions and desires.

“One can get just as much exultation in losting oneself in a little thing
as in a big thing.
It is nice to think how one can be recklessly lost in a daisy!”

If being spiritual means awareness of our
connection to the creative source of the universe,
we have the right to enjoy abundance in our lives.”

—David Simon, M.D., Co-Founder of The Chopra Center for Wellbeing

Living Abundantly

In today’s meditation, we will incorporate all that we’ve learned about abundance and about ourselves. You now have all the tools you need to create greater abundance in your life.  In the words of metaphysician Neville Goddard, “Disregard appearances, condition, in fact all evidence of your senses that deny the fulfillment of your desire. Rest in the assumption that you are already what you want to be, for in that determined assumption, you and your infinite being are merged in creative unity, and with your infinite being, all things are possible.”

Our centering thought for today is:
“Every moment of every day, I live my life abundantly.”

–00Ooo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
So Hum
I am.


Mindful Moment
Celebrate yourself!
Rejoice in your dedication of a daily meditation practice, and congratulate yourself for following through on your intention to create and circulate greater peace and abundance in your life. Spend time in deep gratitude for all of the abundance that surrounds you, and remember to thank the people who have contributed to your wellbeing, including yourself.

“When you arise in the morning,
think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—
to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.”

—Marcus Aurelius

Living Luxury

Today, we’ll explore the concept of luxury, adding something to your life that is more than what you consider a necessity.  When you feel worthy of receiving all the good the universe has to offer, your needs are easily met and exceeded. As you learn to accept the grace that is given you, you send a message to the universe that you deserve only the best and are ready to receive it.

Our centering thought for today is:
“Today, I treat myself to moments of luxury.”

–00Ooo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Sat, Chit, Ananda
Existence, Consciousness, Bliss


Mindful Moment
Make time for a little luxury.
Take some time to do something for yourself that you consider luxurious—take a bubble bath or a long walk, meet a good friend for tea, or lose yourself in a favorite old film. Make this a habit. The more you bring small luxuries into your life, the more you will recognize yourself as a worthy, spiritual being, deserving of love and abundance.

“Your task is not to seek for love,
but merely to seek and find all the barriers
within yourself that you have built against it.”

—Rumi

 Living Love

Today, we’ll look at how, when we live from a state of love, everything good is drawn to us.  Saying “I love you,” is one of the most emotional expressions in any language. However, “I live love,” is seldom used. Yet, living from love is who and what we really are. At the core of your being, you are pure awareness, creativity, spirit, and love. And, when you experience love, you experience yourself as spirit, one who feels—and is—love.

Our centering thought for today is:
“Today, I remember to love everything and
everyone I come in contact with.”

–00Ooo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Sat, Chit, Ananda
Existence, Consciousness, Bliss


Mindful Moment
Share your love.
Practice living love today by offering a kind word or thought to everyone you meet, recognizing that the greatest gift you can give to anyone is love.

There are not more than five musical notes,
yet the combinations of these five give rise to
more melodies than can ever be heard.”

~ Sun Tzu

Living Unity

In today’s meditation, we will explore unity as the underlying truth of all that is.  As individuals, we look different from one another and have different lifestyles, beliefs, and perceptions. However, these differences exist only on the physical plane. At both the molecular and spiritual levels, we are all one, connected by the universal source.  When we begin to fully understand this concept of living unity, we replace the idea of the personal self with that of the universal self. The notion of competition disappears and leaves in its wake only co-operation. This connection fosters deep love and compassion for everyone and everything around us.

 

 Our centering thought for today is:
I celebrate my unity with all life knowing we are all one

–ooOoo–

 Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Tat Tvam Asi
I see the other in myself and myself
in others.

 


Mindful Moment
Foster interconnectedness.

Be present and genuinely interested in the lives of others when you speak with them today. In your conversations, give your undivided attention and, if you see someone in need, offer your assistance. Fostering these experiences will help you cultivate a deeper understanding of true interconnectedness.

Do not anticipate trouble or worry about what may never happen.

 Living Carefree

Today, we will look at how we can live carefree—free from judgment and worry, focused on the joy and perfection of what is.  As you grow into present moment awareness through meditation, you realize that in this moment, everything is perfect, just as it should be, and that any concerns you may have are transitory and temporary. You reconnect with your true self and begin to feel more light-hearted. Moving through life, you approach everyday circumstances with humor and can meet the unexpected with calm and ease.

Our centering thought for today is:
“I move through my days light-hearted and carefree, knowing all is well.”

–ooOoo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Sat, Chit, Ananda
Existence, Consciousness, Bliss


Mindful Moment
Bring in the joy!
Take some time today to reflect on good times, look at old photos, take a leisurely walk, or spend time with someone who warms your heart. Experience the joy of all that you love, including yourself. As a spiritual being, you fear nothing because you know there is nothing to fear, and all that truly exists in the world is love.

“Cultivate the habit of being grateful for every good thing
that comes to you, and to give thanks continuously.
And because all things have contributed to your advancement,
you should include all things in your gratitude.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Living Gratefully

In today’s meditation, we will discover how gratitude for everyone and everything in our lives will help us draw more abundance to us.  In the words of Elie Wiesel, “For me, every hour is grace. And I feel gratitude in my heart every time I can meet someone and look at his or her smile.”  By being grateful for all that you have and expressing that appreciation in your daily life, you open a channel through which abundance can freely flow.

Our centering thought for today is:
“Today, I remember to be grateful.”

–ooOoo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Om Vardhanam Namah
I nourish the universe, and the universe nourishes me. 


Mindful Moment
Cultivate gratitude.
Make a list today of the many things in your life that you appreciate. Review your list and offer thanks for all you’ve included. Practice this routine often. Taking stock of your life’s many gifts and expressing gratitude will clear the way for even greater abundance to flow into your life.

“Learn to get in touch with the silence within yourself,

There are no mistakes, no coincidences,

—Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Living Synchrodestiny

Today, we begin our final week of the Chopra Center 21-Day Meditation Challenge™, Creating Abundance. This week we’ll learn how it feels to live in abundance.  We’ll begin by exploring the concept of synchrodestiny, harnessing the power of everyday coincidences to help you realize your long-held dreams. When we trust that there is a rhythm to life, and choose to live in harmony with that rhythm, everything we desire comes to us effortlessly.

Our centering thought for today is:
“As I live in present moment awareness,
I live the magic of synchrodestiny.”

–ooOoo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Aham Brahmasmi
The core of my being is the ultimate reality,
the root and ground of the universe,
the source of all that exists. 
 


Mindful Moment
Witness the connections.
Explore experiences of synchrodestiny in your own life. Make a list of recent coincidences that you’ve had. Begin to notice these coincidences and see the universe at work in your life, helping you realize your dreams.

“Everybody can be great . . . because anybody can serve.
You don’t have to have a college degree to serve.
You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve.
You only need a heart full of grace.
A soul generated by love.”

—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

 Abundance and the Law of Dharma

We’ve so far explored abundance as it relates to the principles in Deepak Chopra’s book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, beginning with the Law of Pure Potentiality and concluding with the Law of Dharma.  When you’re living your true purpose in life, your dharma, abundance flows to you easily and effortlessly. As the popular saying goes, “Do what you love and the money will follow.” It is not only material wealth, but also satisfaction, confidence, optimism, joy, and abundance in all its forms that will follow you when you are living your true purpose in life.

Our centering thought for today is:
“There is a way I can fulfill my true purpose in life.”

–ooOoo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Om Varunam Namah
My life is in harmony with cosmic law. 


Mindful Moment
Experience true happiness.
Pay attention to the spirit that resides inside you, focusing your attention on your heart center. Ask sincerely, “What does the world need from me?” Listen for the answers. Make a list of your unique talents and ask yourself how you can best use those gifts to serve the world.

“We can only be said to be truly alive in those moments
when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.”

—Thornton Wilder

Abundance and the Law of Detachment

Today, we’ll explore how, by relinquishing the desire to manifest a specific outcome, we allow the Law of Detachment to work in our lives.  Abundance appears in many forms and, as long as you commit to desires that benefit the world, all that you desire can be yours.   Co-Founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, Dr. David Simon wrote, “The symbols of abundance—a bigger house, a new car, an ornate piece of jewelry—can bring waves of delight, but do not sacrifice the ocean for a few transient waves. Commit to a life overflowing with abundance of love, passion, creativity and meaning, and the symbols will chase after you.”

 

Our centering thought for today is:
“As I let go of the need to arrange my life,
the universe brings abundant good to me.”

–00Ooo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Om Anandham Namah
My actions are blissfully free from attachment to outcome. 


Mindful Moment
Trust in the uncertainty.
Detach from all expectation of outcome by allowing everyone and everything the freedom to be exactly as they are. Accept uncertainty and witness the solutions and opportunities that spontaneously spring from it. Then, step into the field of all possibilities, remaining open to its infinity of choices.

“In the universe there is an immeasurable,
indescribable force which shaman call intent,
and absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos
is attached to intent by a connecting link.”

—Carlos Castaneda

Abundance and the Law of Intention and Desire

Attention energizes; intention transforms.
In today’s meditation, we’ll explore this concept through the Law of Intention and Desire.  Whatever you want or need in your life, you can put the cosmic computer, with its infinite organizing power, to work for you by formulating an intention and planting the seed of that intention into the field of all possibilities. In this way, you’ll attract the right people, situations, and circumstances to help you manifest your dreams.

 

Our centering thought for today is:
“I place my intention into the vast ocean of all
possibilities and allow the universe to work through me.”

–00Ooo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Om Ritam Namah
My actions and desires are supported by cosmic intelligence.


Mindful Moment
Empower your intention.
Ask yourself the question: What do I want? Then, visualize your intention. Write it down and glance at it before you enter your mediation. Release your intention to the womb of creation and relinquish your attachment to the outcome, believing in the exquisite, infinite organizing power of the universe.

“An integral being knows without going,

—Lao Tzu

 Abundance and the Law of Least Effort

In today’s meditation, we’ll explore the Law of Least Effort and how it can help us release our desires into the spiritual realm to create abundance in our lives.  When your actions are motivated by love, your energy multiplies and accumulates. Releasing that energy allows it to be redirected and used to create anything you want. When your internal reference point is your spirit, you can harness the power of love and use this energy creatively for the experience of affluence and evolution.

Our centering thought for today is:
“I expect and accept abundance to flow easily to me.”

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Om Daksham Namah
My actions achieve maximal benefit with minimal effort.


Mindful Moment

 “Every thought you produce, anything you say,
any action you do, it bears your signature.”

—Thich Nhat Hanh

 Abundance and the Law of Karma

In today’s meditation, we will discuss the Law of Karma, or conscious choice-making, and consider how, through the choices we make, more of every good thing can flow into our lives.

When you make any choice—any choice at all—you can ask yourself whether the choice you’re making will bring happiness, or more abundance, to you and everyone around you. After posing this question, place your attention in your heart, and the answer will become clear to you.

By practicing conscious choice-making in this way, you will learn to witness your thoughts, and make the most nourishing decisions for your life.

 Our centering thought for today is:
“Today, I make great choices, because they are made with full awareness.”

–ooOoo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Om Kriyam Namah
My actions are aligned with cosmic law.


Mindful Moment
Allow your heart to guide you.
Practice connecting with the heart for guidance in conscious choice-making. Each time you’re faced with a choice, place your attention in your heart and ask yourself: Will this choice bring fulfillment and happiness to me and to those who are affected by this choice? Then, make your decision based on the answer you receive.

It is not how much we give,

—Mother Teresa

 Abundance and the Law of Giving

In today’s meditation, we will explore the Law of Giving.
The universe always works in dynamic exchange with your body, mind, and environment. In nature, giving and receiving, different aspects of the flow of energy in the universe, are what permit the continual bounty we enjoy. It is through this vital flow that everything you want and need can be yours.

As Buddha shared, “Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.”

Our centering thought for today is:
“Today, and everyday, I give that which I want to receive.”

-00Ooo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Om Vardhanam Namah
I nourish the universe, and the universe nourishes me.


Mindful Moment

Offer a small gift to everyone you encounter today. The gift needn’t be expensive—a flower, a smile, a helping hand, or a silent blessing—and remain open to gratefully receiving all gifts that are offered to you.

 Abundance and the Law of Pure Potentiality

With today’s meditation, we begin the second week of the Chopra Center 21-Day Meditation Challenge™, Creating Abundance. Throughout this week, we’ll explore abundance as it relates to the laws contained in my book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success.

The power to create anything flows through us when we are connected to the moment, plugged into the deeper source from which all experience, knowledge, and existence emerge and to which they return. And, so, we’ll begin this week by discovering how we can put the first law, the Law of Pure Potentiality, into practice and create abundance by accessing this source, the field of all possibilities.

 

Our centering thought for today is:
“Through the Law of Pure Potentiality,
I can create anything, anytime, anywhere.”

–ooOoo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Om Bhavam Namah
I am absolute existence. I am a field of all possibilities.


Mindful Moment

 Spontaneous Fulfillment of Desire

Congratulations on completing the first week of the Chopra Center 21-Day Meditation Challenge™, Creating Abundance! During our time together, we defined abundance as having all your needs, wants, and desires met; we also discovered that the source of all abundance is the unlimited divine source, underlying all creation. We discussed the three levels of consciousness—mind, matter, and spirit—and how spirit is the source of everything that is and where anything is possible. Just yesterday, we acknowledged that the seeds of success are within and always available to you.  Today, you will learn that when you align your thoughts, deeds, beliefs, and expectations with spirit, everything you have always wanted, needed, or desired flows freely to you.

Our centering thought for today is:
“I use my conscious intention to manifest my dreams.”

–ooOoo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Sat, Chit, Ananda
Existence, Consciousness, Bliss


Mindful Moment
Be led by your mind-body-spirit.
Take a moment to envision an everyday miracle you’d like to have happen in your life. Consider your circumstances as they are now and how you’d like them to be. Paying attention to your body, notice how you feel when you think about your current circumstances and when you focus on your dreams. Write down these feelings of comfort or discomfort, sadness, or joy. Your body is a wonderful tool to help align you with spirit. Noting how it feels helps you make creative choices that will bring you closer to what you desire.

“As human beings, our greatness lies not
so much in being able to remake the world . . .
as in being able to remake ourselves.”

—Mahatma Gandhi

The Seeds of Success

Today, we will consider what success is and where it is found. It’s common to sometimes measure our success or fulfillment by comparing ourselves to others. This is called object-referral, looking outside for validation. It’s also common to overlook the opportunities for success that exist in our setbacks or failures. Through meditation, we learn that everything we want, need, and desire is already within us and that the seeds of success are within every perceived setback. Self-referral, looking within, is where true fulfillment resides.

In the words of Ralph Waldo Emerson:
“Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”

Our centering thought for today is:
“Everything I desire is within me.”

–ooOoo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Ram . . . Ram . . . Ram
Everything I desire is within me.


Mindful Moment
Discover the seeds.
Take a moment today to consider a situation that feels like a failure or a setback. From that perspective, try to identify opportunities that could put you on the path to success. Write down the steps you can take to make your vision a reality. You can apply this exercise to all areas of your life. Take the time to look at each situation that challenges you and find those seeds of success that will attract greater abundance into your life.

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take,
but by the moments that take our breath away.”

—Maya Angelou

The Field of All Possibilities

Today, we will delve into the field of all possibilities that reveals itself in the silence of meditation. The unlimited power of the universe is always available to you. Making intuitive choices, grounded in this unified field, will help you manifest your deepest desires.

When going about your daily life, continue to cultivate stillness whenever possible. Spend time in nature, absorb its beauty, and notice how its abundance is spread before you. Bask in the energy of beautiful music; uplifting and inspirational stories; and optimistic, like-minded people. As you do this, you’ll find the field of all possibilities will open wide to help your dreams, hopes, and desires come to fruition.


Our centering thought for today is:
“Today, I embrace my potential to be, do, and have whatever I can dream.”

–ooOoo–

Today’s Sanskrit mantra and its English essence are:
Sat, Chit, Ananda
Existence, Consciousness, Bliss

 


Mindful Moment
Awaken to unlimited possibilities.
Look at one situation you’d like to change. Allow yourself to focus your thoughts on that one wish. Then, write down one intention. Be as specific as you can. When you go into meditation, look at this intention and let it go. Surrender it to the field of all possibilities and allow the universe to correlate the details.
