As one of my monthly goals is to meditate every day I have signed up for a free meditation challenge with Oprah and Deepak. This 21-day challenge focuses on manifestations of success. Feel free to follow along, try it yourself and/or comment below.
Success Organizes Itself
Q1) Reflect on your old strategy for organizing your life: trying to control every detail, multitasking three or four activities at the same time, and using willpower and emotional intensity to impose order. Was that a successful strategy that achieved long term results? Did you gain support from others? Did it allow you to feel relaxed and satisfied afterward?
None of my old strategies worked but I did feel better once the stress of it was over. I wouldn’t say relaxed, more relieved.
Q2) For awareness to organize your daily activities, it must be centered, calm, and alert. When your awareness is agitated, upset, or tired, your day will not be successful. Write about the events of two different days that represent those opposite states of awareness.
Q3) The organizing power of consciousness creates a natural flow to the events of your day. Describe a time when you felt well-connected to your source, and everything flowed smoothly the entire day.
I can’t pinpoint an exact day but I feel like I have those days more and more. Where I just feel like things go smoothly all day and I am relaxed. When difficult things come up I am able to solve the problem in a reasonable and knowledgable way. Nothing seems to really bother me on those days and they always end up being really good days for me.
Q4) Use this space to reflect further on your experience today.
No reflection again. My head cold is blocking out most of my thoughts 🙁
