“World peace must develop from inner peace.
Peace is not just mere absence of violence.
Peace is, I think, the manifestation of
—His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama
Welcome to the bonus day of our 21-Day Meditation Experience. Today we offer a special guided meditation to ignite a ripple of peace and abundance out into the world. We are all connected through pure consciousness, and the ebb and flow of pure potentiality envelops all of us. In today’s meditation, we will focus on that flow of giving and receiving, sharing our gifts and offering gratitude in return to enable everyone in the world an opportunity to benefit from this amazing journey.
Love and abundance for all.
Opens the heart chakra–
activating peace, harmony, and love.
”We’re back for one more day – our thank you and our gift to you, our meditating friends around the globe. Each day together has allowed us to expand in our essential connection to ourselves and to the power of source. Today, we join our hearts and minds together to offer a united energy to the world, in wisdom, in acceptance, in trust. So let us set a global intention and release it into the universe. With this meditation, we continue to move toward a shift in our collective consciousness…to divine essence, to each other, and to a shared destiny of kindness and grace. So get comfortable one last time and let us join our hearts, our spirits together, listening as Deepak guides us in a beautiful visualization of peace, unity for our world.”
”Welcome back. This day is a gift for you – our global community. It certainly is a gift to us to have been able to take such an amazing journey with you and to have one more day together through which we can share our joy with the world.
Our meditation today focuses on peace, harmony, laughter, over and well-being, the simple yet precious gifts of abundance that we can enjoy with and intend for our families, friends, neighbors and everyone around the globe.
Please begin by taking a comfortable seat and closing your eyes. Turn your attention to your heart center. Repeat these intentional words as today’s centering thought. Love and abundance for all. Love and abundance for all. Envision a beautiful white light emanating from your heart, this place of pure love, peace and joy. Take a moment to be with this warm, expansive, healing light. Feel it expand within each and every cell of your body as if nectar from the heavens is traveling through your being, filling you with the most blissful sense of peace and well-being.
Picture at the center of your now light-filled being within your heart, one of the special gifts that you have been placed on earth to offer the world. It is dazzling in its brilliance, radiant with possibility. Now imagine you’re a part of a vast circle that includes everyone else on the planet and everyone in that circle is also connecting with his or her inherent light as they visualize the divine treasure they have to share. You gaze upon the light of each and every person as far as your eyes can see. As you look a little deeper, you see and sense the bountiful gifts that are in the hearts of all the people, gleaming and golden, just waiting to realize their destiny, to be expressed and received lovingly, to elevate the vibration of peace and well-being for all.
You now hold your unique gift – your beautiful light in your hands. Feeling the warmth, you tenderly turn to your right and gently offer it to the person beside you. You feel completely received as your gift is accepted with honor, grace and gratitude. With reverence, you turn to your left and openly accept into your heart, the gift that your neighbor is generously giving you. Whatever that gift may be – a smile, a joke, or a warm embrace, you accept it and receive it in your heart with deep gratitude. As you drink in the light and love, you turn back to the person on your right and share this blessing with that person, basking in the beauty and flow of the gifts being expressed, shared and received, one after another, you know that the circle is indivisible and the abundance is endless, delight in the knowing that the gift you are sharing is divine, infinite and eternal.
Brimming with this joyful expansion, clasp the hands of those next to you and enjoy the warm glow of peace and love that comes from freely sharing what we are on earth to offer. Know that when we remove judgment, replacing it with heartfelt appreciation and generosity, we become one with the power of pure Spirit, making all things possible. Send these feelings of peace, love, equanimity and joy to those in your life and those around the world who may be experiencing turmoil and pain. Visualize the good feelings that you hold in your abundant heart, swaddling in a warm, soft blanket those who most need your gifts of peace and love, uniting everyone together as one. See each and every heart and soul on our beautiful planet receiving peace, healing and abundance.
As you continue with your eyes closed, gently introduce the manta, repeating it silently to yourself. Yum. Yum. Yum. This is the mantra that opens the heart chakra offering peace, harmony, light and love to reawaken in the heart of everyone around the world. Yum. Yum. Yum. Remember that when you are distracted by thoughts, noises or sensations in your body, go back to silently repeating the mantra. Yum. Yum. Yum. Continue to meditate for about 10 minutes. Then release the mantra and bring your awareness back into your body. Take a moment to pay attention to the breath. When you feel ready, open your eyes.
Thank you for sharing your abundant gifts with us and with everyone around the world. Know that while our circle is now open, it lives on in our intention, reaching each person on our planet and filling him or her with love and light. This wonderful journey has enriched all our lives and I am deeply grateful to have shared it with you. I hold this heartfelt intention for you and our sisters and brothers around the globe. Love and abundance for all. Love and abundance for all. Love and abundance for all.
Today as you enter the stillness and silence of meditation, hold the intention that everyone in the world will realize abundance. Consider the many gifts you have to offer and do so freely while accepting gifts from others with gratitude, love, and joy. In this way, we enter the dynamic flow of the universe and share the experience of pure Spirit with our fellow human beings around the globe.
We look forward to sharing abundance with the world today. Blessings,
