“We must each lead a way of life with self-awareness
and compassion, to do as much as we can. Then,
whatever happens we will have no regrets.” 
—His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama

Congratulations! Today is the final day of our 21-Day Meditation Challenge™, and you now have all the tools to live perfect health!  We hope that you share our deep appreciation for all that we’ve experienced through our discussions and daily meditations. Being thankful for what we have in our lives is an important part of our journey to perfect health. Gratitude helps clear away the noise of our egos and allows us to connect more deeply with our inner wisdom.  As we move forward on our individual paths, remember how important it is to spend time with friends and family. Sharing what we learn also enables us to build a supportive community, which is essential to creating a positive lifestyle.

 

Today’s Centering Thought:
I create my perfect health.

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Sat Chit Ananda
Existence, Consciousness, Bliss.

We are so grateful for our time with you. Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
Sustain the habit of writing in your gratitude journal and continue writing all the things for which you’re thankful every day. Take time each week to review what you’ve written to truly appreciate the gifts your life offers you.

“Wrinkles should merely indicate
where the smiles have been.” 
—Mark Twain

It may be challenging to see ourselves as ageless beings that grow in wisdom and spiritual fulfillment in each passing moment. Yet, living in the present enables us to literally stop time. Meditation helps ground us in the present and, physiologically, increases growth hormones, which slow down the external signs of aging.  As we engage in activities that bring us joy and choose to live from an open-heart awareness, we approach our lives with a new, positive perspective and truly live agelessly.

Today’s Centering Thought:
I am ageless and timeless. 

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Aham Brahmasmi
The core of my being is the ultimate reality,
the root and ground of the universe,
the source of all that exists.

We look forward to enjoying the stillness with you today. Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
Consider an activity that really excites you. Make the commitment to engage in that activity for some time every day. Witness how time stands still when you indulge your passion and you become firmly rooted in the present.

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single
moment before starting to improve the world.”
—Anne Frank

Today, we discuss what it truly means to live a life full of optimism.  We become what we believe and, as we’ve learned, remaining positive sends our bodies loving messages that are crucial to maintaining good health. By being grateful for all that we have, we can move our egos aside and live the lives we were meant to live, full of enthusiasm for the present moment and confident about our futures.  By fostering an inner dialogue that is most nurturing to us, we support the clear vision we have for ourselves and live our lives in alignment with our true purpose.

Today’s Centering Thought:
My life unfolds in divine order. 

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Om Daksham Namah
My actions achieve maximal benefit with minimal effort.

We look forward to meditating with you today. Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT

If you are not doing so already, begin to keep a gratitude journal. Each morning or evening, take stock of your life and write down those things for which you are truly thankful.

“Freedom lies in being bold.” 
—Robert Frost

Passion is energy. It’s the power that comes from focusing on what really excites you. When we live with enthusiasm, we fully engage our brains and bodies in our activities, building new pathways that foster health and wellbeing. One way to ensure that we live our lives with passion is to find our dharma, our life’s true purpose, through which we can serve our community and ourselves in deeply meaningful ways. Engaging in life in this way helps keep our minds active and sharp and strengthens our relationships with everyone we meet.

Today’s Centering Thought:
I live my life with passion and enthusiasm. 

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Om Varunam Namah
My life is in harmony with cosmic law.

We enthusiastically await our time together today. Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
Begin to connect with your true life’s purpose. Before each meditation, ask yourself, “How can I help? How can I serve?” Then, listen to your heart for the answer.

“You can discover more about a person in an
hour of play than in a year of conversation.” 
—Plato

Today, we explore our creative spirit. As long as we remain open to new possibilities and a willingness to escape our routines, we can enjoy lifelong creativity. Letting go opens the door to new discoveries and enables us to feel truly alive. Enjoy opportunities to explore without outside opinions or artificial boundaries. Do those things that make time disappear and witness the boundless joy that flows to you.

Today’s Centering Thought:
Through rest and play,
I open my
creative channel.

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Om Anandham Namah
My actions are blissfully free from attachment to outcome.

We look forward to creating with you in stillness today. Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
Set aside time today to be totally free to express yourself. Find a quiet space, gather the tools you need, and just enjoy what happens. Notice how you feel after you’ve spent some time doing what you love.

“Take the first step in faith.
You don’t have to see the whole staircase,
just take the first step.” 
—Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

In order to begin integrating all that we’re learning into our daily lives, it’s important to create a healthy lifestyle matrix to support our goals. Examining all aspects of our lives—choosing our meals, the amount of time we have to exercise, or unhealthy habits that we long to change—will help us make those transformations, both small and large, that lead us to perfect health.

Today’s Centering Thought:
My little changes amount to big benefits. 

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Ram, Ram, Ram
Everything I desire is within me.

We are excited for our time together.  Blessings,

 


MINDFUL MOMENT
Take some time to analyze your current lifestyle. Ask yourself what changes you can make that can support your healthy goals. Then, one by one, begin to make those important changes to create a positive matrix to support your wellbeing.

“The music is not in the notes,
but in the silence between.”
—Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

It is in this stillness that we connect with the Highest Self, the field of pure potentiality, and plant the seeds of our dearest intentions for ourselves and others so that they flourish in our lives. In this stillness, we come to understand that we are indeed intrinsically part of the universe and connected with everyone and everything around us.

 

Today’s Centering Thought:
I intend to take steps each day
toward
perfect health. 

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Om Ritam Namah
My actions and desires are supported by cosmic intelligence.

We look forward to connecting with you in Spirit. Blessings,

  


MINDFUL MOMENT
Commit to writing down your intentions. Before each meditation, review your list, and then release your intentions into the womb of creation. Then, watch how what you desire manifests in your life.

“Consciousness is only possible through change;
change is only possible through movement.” 
—Aldous Huxley

Today, we explore the concept of balance through movement.  Yoga means “union,” the union of mind, body, and spirit. Moving our bodies in ways that help us feel peaceful and connected with everything around us—whether it’s a brisk walk, a focused run, or an hour of yoga—can shift our awareness. Exercise can help us feel open and alive, rebalance our perspective, improve our physiology, and help us experience all aspects of ourselves, in harmony.

Today’s Centering Thought:
“I am flexible, powerful, and balanced.”

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Om Varunam Namah
My life is in harmony with cosmic law.

We look forward to our union with you today.
Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
Create a schedule so that you engage in the exercise you enjoy the most on a regular basis. Commit to keeping with your schedule and journal how you feel each time you practice that activity.

“Each friend represents a world in us,
a world possibly not born until they arrive,
and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” 
—Anais Nin

We are social creatures, who thrive in community. Connecting with one another allows us to express our most heartfelt hopes and dreams and be of service to one another. Our supportive relationships enhance the positive messages we send our bodies each day and invite better health and wellbeing into our lives. As we prepare for meditation today, take a moment to be grateful for the many individuals who contribute to your life and in whose lives you make a difference.Today’s Centering Thought: I cherish my every connection. Our Sanskrit mantra: Tat Tvam Asi I see the other in myself and myself in others.

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
—Hippocrates

While we often learn about food from external sources, Ayurveda teaches us to trust the inner wisdom of our bodies, which insightfully guides us to make the correct food choices. Eating an array of natural, colorful foods, rich in nutrients, that also provides the six tastes—sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent—helps us align our doshas and keeps us balanced. Just as conscious breathing invites greater prana, or energy, into our lives, so, too, do nutritious foods and fresh, clean water. It’s important, then, to make choices that are in tune with our bodies and eat with awareness in order to optimize our health.

 

 Today’s Centering Thought:
I choose foods that help me thrive. 

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Om Vardhanam Namah
I nourish the universe and the universe nourishes me.

We look forward to meditating with you today.
Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
Prepare one meal today that includes a full range of colors. Try to also use all six tastes. Savor each bite, eating with awareness, and witness how your body feels after your meal.

“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky.
Conscious breathing is my anchor.” 
—Thich Nhat Hanh

Today, we take a closer look at something we all do every day—breathing. Everything that is alive is energized by a force called prana. Prana means energy or life force and, in humans, that life force is the breath.  Whereas most of our breathing is regulated automatically, conscious breathing can completely shift our perception. When we close our eyes and simply witness the breath as it flows in and out of our nostrils, we invite peace and balance into our lives, bathing our brains and every cell of our bodies in energy and vitality.

Today’s Centering Thought:
I am one with the breath of life. 

Our Sanskrit mantra:
So hum
I am.

We look forward to our time together.
Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
Spend some time practicing a more advanced form of conscious breathing. Get comfortable and close your eyes. Begin to imagine the breath as it flows in and out of the nostrils. After a few rounds of inhalations and exhalations, count to five on the inhale, hold the breath for five, and then exhale for a count of five. Do this several times for just a few minutes. After you’ve completed the exercise, rest for a minute or two, and then return to activity.

“Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.” 
—Lao Tzu 

Today, we spend time thinking about our environments—at home and away—and find ways to make them more nourishing and peaceful.  Consider those things that you enjoy—the scents, sights, sounds—that bring calm to your mind and spirit, and warm your heart. With just a little bit of thought and effort, we can create environments that support our success and enable us to feel positive and alive. So, as you enjoy your home and work in your professional space, we encourage you to make those small, simple changes that will allow your environment to enhance your life.

 Today’s Centering Thought:
My outer world reflects my inner world. 

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Sat Chit Ananda
Existence, Consciousness, Bliss

We look forward to our time together today.
Blessings

 


MINDFUL MOMENT
Take some time to examine your environment and consider those things you’d like to change. Perhaps it’s time to sweep away some clutter, add fresh flowers, turn on some soothing music, or light a stick of incense. Remind yourself that your outer world is a reflection of your inner world and invite those elements into your environment that truly make you feel good inside.

 “Your visions will become clear only
when you can look into your own heart.
Who looks outside, dreams;
who looks inside, awakes.”
—C.G. Jung

This week, we have even more transformational information to share with you, and it all has to do with cultivating greater balance in our lives. Today’s discussion and meditation focus on restoring balance and how we can become more self-aware. Throughout our days, we tend to repeat the same activities without thinking much about them. At some point, though, we become aware of these habits and, later, we may even become self-aware, wondering why these habits are part of our lives and deciding whether they benefit us. Our entire journey together over these three weeks is one that will lead us to greater self-understanding.

 Today’s Centering Thought:
With awareness, I create healthy habits. 

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Om Kriyam Namah
My actions are aligned with cosmic law

 We look forward to connecting with you in meditation.
Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
Examine your habits today. Ask yourself, “Why did I begin doing this?” and “Does this benefit my body, mind, and spirit?” If you find yourself habitually engaging in activities that do not support your healthy lifestyle, begin taking steps to change those habits that do not serve you.

“The invariable mark of wisdom is
to see the miraculous in the common.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Today, our discussion centers on honoring our bodies, the temples that are the vehicles for our souls.   By keeping our bodies healthy and strong, we are better able to turn our energy toward deeply meaningful experiences, spending time with loved ones, enjoying the beauty of nature all around us, and pursuing our own spiritual paths. Because this body is the only one we have, we must treat it with great love and respect, so that it will, in turn, enable us to enjoy all those things we love.

Today’s Centering Thought:
My body is a magnificent vehicle that
connects me to Spirit. 

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Lam, Lam, Lam
Repeating “Lam” opens the root chakra,
allowing us to feel grounded

We look forward to continuing on this journey with you.

Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
As we prepare for meditation today, silently thank your body for all that it allows you to do and commit to making healthy choices that continue to nourish it.

“Friendship with oneself is all important,
because without it one cannot be friends
with anyone else in the world.” 

—Eleanor Roosevelt

 Today’s message and meditation center on our bodies, which are perfect in every moment. As we learn more about the messages we send our bodies, we also become more aware of how we talk to ourselves. When we have an ache, pain, sickness, or perceived imperfection, it’s important to pay attention to these signals from our body and mind and respond with compassion. In today’s visualization exercise, we’ll take a journey of self-awareness, traveling throughout the body and offering love, acceptance, and gratitude everywhere we go.

Today’s Centering Thought:
“I am perfection. I am healthy. I am strong.”

Our Sanskrit mantra:
So hum
I am.

 We look forward to our connecting in stillness.
Blessings,

 


 MINDFUL MOMENT
When you settle in for meditation, pay attention to how your body feels. If there are feelings of discomfort anywhere in the body, send that area messages of kindness and love.

“Dwell on the beauty of life.
Watch the stars, and see yourself running with them.”
—Marcus Aurelius

Our thoughts manifest as matter in our bodies, which is why it is so important that we send ourselves positive messages. Not only can we do this through loving self-talk, but we can also be kind to ourselves by going with the flow of our lives and accepting our circumstances in each moment.  As we learn more about this mind-body connection and enter our meditation, commit to greeting every moment today with passion and joy.

Today’s Centering Thought:
I flow in rhythm with my mind and body.

Our Sanskrit mantra:

Om Anandham Namah
My actions are blissfully free from attachment to outcome.

We look forward to our connecting in stillness.
Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
Today, commit to staying grounded in the present. Whenever you find yourself worrying about the past or feeling fearful about the future, take three deep breaths to bring yourself back to the here and now.

 “The simple things are also the most extraordinary things,
and only the wise can see them.”
—Paulo Coelho

Yesterday, we learned how important it is that we pay attention to our bodies’ intuition—how our bodies speak to us. Today, we learn that how we speak to our bodies also plays a vital role in our health and wellbeing.  Based on how we interpret what’s happening around us, the brain and central nervous system respond by sending our cells a constant stream of messages that directly impact our physical state. Positive messages draw healthy responses from our bodies in the form of stronger immune systems and healthier sleep patterns, among many other benefits that can last a lifetime.

Today’s Centering Thought:
I trust the wisdom of my body. 

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Om, Om, Om
Repeating “Om” honors our connection to the universe

 We look forward to our time together.
Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
Take a moment today to listen to a common message you send your body. Evaluate whether or not that message is one of kindness, respect, and love. If the message could be more loving, rephrase what you are telling your body and repeat that new message often throughout the day.

Today, we focus on the intuition of the body, that inner voice we each have, guiding us toward those choices and decisions that keep us balanced and thriving.  As we’re learning, our bodies already know how to attain equilibrium, and we can enhance our physical state simply by listening to the clues our bodies give us. From Ayurveda, the world’s oldest health system, we learn today that our bodies have inherent tendencies, called doshas. The more deeply connected with our intuition we become, the more we grow in awareness of how best to keep our doshas—and our bodies—in balance.

Today’s Centering Thought:
My mind and body are in perfect sync.

Our Sanskrit mantra:
Sham, Sham, Sham
Repeating “Sham” awakens the third eye chakra, your intuition

We look forward to sharing more with you today.
Blessings,


MINDFUL MOMENT
When faced with a choice today, close your eyes and place your hand on your heart. As you weigh your options in making your decision, pay attention to how your body feels. By listening to the body, the right answer will reveal itself to you.
