“World peace must develop from inner peace.
Peace is not just mere absence of violence.
Peace is, I think, the manifestation of
human compassion.”
—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.

CENTERING THOUGHT
Love and abundance for all.

SANSKRIT MANTRA
Yum
Opens the heart chakra–
activating peace, harmony, and love.

Day22- Desire&Destiny

Oprah:

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.”  

Deepak:  

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.

Namaste


MINDFUL MOMENT
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,

Day21- Desire&Destiny

Oprah:  

Here we are already. Hard to believe!  21 days have gone by so quickly.  Day 21, Extraordinary me.  Deepak and I are so grateful that you chose to stay with us, exploring your inner truth, allowing your deepest desires to emerge and guide you toward your true destiny.  Joy.  It’s been an extraordinary journey.  Each one of us is extraordinary with wondrous dreams and desires designed to help us fulfill our unique purpose in this lifetime – which can evolve and change over time.  Each of us has the divine potential to realize a magnificent destiny – all our own, by following and living our joy.  As you dream a bigger dream for yourself, my greatest hope is that you continue to find stillness within.  This I know for sure…for sure.  Giving yourself that space and quiet will lead you to even more miraculous dreams, more joy, more possibility, and a supreme destiny beyond your greatest imagination.  Nothing is too extraordinary to be achieved.  If you can dream it, and your intentions are pure, you can be it, and be of service in sharing it with the world.  What a gift for us.  What a gift for you.  Thank you.   And you know what to do.  Let’s get comfortable once more.  Breathe, relax, listen to Deepak and share stillness together.  Namaste.”

Deepak:  

Congratulations on completing this magnificent 21 days together.  You know now that within you, you have all the tools you need to access your pure potential, to evolve your dreams into reality, and to live a life of extraordinary design.  We have learned so much during our 21 days together.  Now is the time to take your chance as you reach for the stars.  It is your destiny.

Right now, imagine something that you have always wanted but perhaps thought impossible.  That one idea that you keep tucked away, perhaps with such care that you have not even dared to speak it aloud.  Yet, you hold on to the dream because it resonates so deeply within you.  Close your eyes and see it.  Really see it.  Envision that you are living this dream right now.  It is your life.  No cutting corners, no holding back.  Your deepest dream in motion. What is your life like?  How do you feel?

As humans, we have the remarkable ability to transform all that we imagine into reality.  Understand that if a deep desire lives in your heart, a dream that is part of your soul’s fiber, a path exists to bring it to life. Abundance in all its forms is our birthright.  We were born to enjoy every aspect of life, to experience every emotion, and to discover the seeds of potential that live within.  As you practice trusting that the universe is always there to support you, I invite you to continue stepping into your greatest self, to experience everything there is to know, confident in the knowledge of who you really are – a radiant spirit worthy of everything life has to give.  See yourself united with the unlimited potential dwelling within you, and everyone and everything that is part of the universe.  From this place of unlimited potential, give yourself permission to dream big.  Tap into that vast reservoir of courage that is available to all, as you move through and well beyond your comfort zone into the space of infinite joy, peace and possibility.  As you embrace life with passion, seize each wonderful moment and make the most of each adventure.  Be rooted in the knowledge that you’re as mighty as the universe itself, full of love, joy and power.  You are star dust, a bright, golden light and all good things of this lifetime are indeed your divine destiny.

Before we begin today’s meditation, consider the centering thought, “My destiny is joy.  My destiny is joy”

Please be seated comfortably, relaxing your hands and your body.  Breathe effortlessly and easily and release whatever tension you feel.  Begin to repeat today’s mantra, just mentally.  Om Bhavam Namah.  I am absolute existence.  I am a field of all possibilities.  Om Bhavam Namah.   When you’re distracted by thoughts, noises, or sensations in your body simply return to the mantra.  Om Bhavam Namah.  Continue meditating for about 10 minutes.  Then let the mantra go and become aware of your body.  Take a moment to rest, breathing with ease.  When you feel ready, you can open your eyes.

Throughout the day, envision yourself as the powerful being you are and think about our centering thought, “My destiny is joy.  My destiny is joy.  My destiny is joy”.

Namaste.

Spend time contemplating the many lessons you have learned on our journey together and see how they can help manifest joy in your life and in the lives of everyone you meet. As you make your way through your day today allow yourself to share your smile with others freely. Be the ripple of positivity and light that will change the world.
