Finding The Lightness in Your Life
Day 1 – Finding the Lightness in Your Life – A Personal Journey
“Lightness and weightiness… are both choices in life.” ― Erik Pevernagie
Welcome to Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey’s 21-Day Meditation Experience, Shedding the Weight: Mind, Body and Spirit. I have just finished this 21 day experience, and it is one of my favorite guided meditations. Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey started the series with this introduction:
“We are delighted you are joining us on this adventure to transform all of our heaviness and burdens in life to lightness and fulfillment. Together we will understand that “shedding the weight” is not only an issue for our bodies, but that we are also weighed down with emotional, mental, and spiritual burdens.
Today we discover that we don’t have to struggle to shed our burdens – all we need to do is expand our awareness. In that awareness we find the inner fulfillment that is our true self. This state of expanded awareness is the lightness in your life, and allows you to effortlessly let go of heaviness that doesn’t serve you.
As we continue this Meditation Experience over the next few weeks, we will explore all the ways to shed our weight, whether it is physical, mental, or emotional.”
The centering thought for this beginning series is My struggle has ended. I am in harmony with myself. Take the next 15-20 minutes and meditate, clearing your mind, and repeating this mantra: Om Laghu Bhavam, I am lightness itself.
