A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of going to Oprah's 'The Life You Want Weekend' event courtesy of P&G brands OLAY, Tide, and Orgullosa. Being a huge Oprah fan since middle school (I would watch everyday after school at 4:00 p.m.) and having subscribed to her magazine since the first issue, this was a big deal. I'd always wanted to go to a taping of her show, but never got the opportunity, so getting an email offering tickets to the event was definitely a good mail day. At the event, our seats were close to the stage, so seeing O up close and personal was pretty thrilling, a bucket-list item happily checked off.
On day 2, Deepak Chopra was one of the speakers and, during his presentation, he lead us in a group mediation. I've always been intrigued with the idea of meditating, and my two closest friends are daily meditators, but I have never put it to consistent practice in my life. In fact, I've only tried it a handful of times and usually end up thinking about random things like dinner or laundry. But, I'm ready to challenge myself to a consistent practice of mediation now.
Oprah and Deepak have teamed up to present a free 21-day Energy of Attraction Meditation Experience that starts tomorrow, Monday, November 3. You sign up creating an account and then will receive a daily email with a link to the meditations. I'm one of those people who is on the go pretty much non-stop, so training myself to not just slow down, but to be still will be good for me. Sure, I often relax on the couch or in bed with a magazine or book, but I almost never just sit still and do nothing. I feel like right now, in the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving and before the Christmas holiday, is the perfect time to tune in and listen to my Spirit and see what it wants to tell me.
