Oprah Life You Want Weekend – Meditation with Deepak Chopra

Oprah and Deepak ChopraThere is something about the stillness and peace of mediation that is intoxicating to me. As most of life demands constant action to remain current, meditation starts you on a journey back to the root of you and your connection to the universe in order to provide insight and clarity.  In the second day of The Life You Want Tour we got a great start with a guided meditation with Deepak ChopraDeepak Chopra is renowned for his meditation insight and its ability to lead you to a higher level of living and understanding.  At the Life You Want Weekend he put his skills to great use during the meditation.

In this spirit Deepak guided so to challenge the universe inside each of us to some of the most difficult questions we face in our journey to know ourselves:

Who Am I?

What do I want?

What is my intention?

What is my purpose?

What am I grateful for?

It is in these questions and with the stillness of meditation we can leave what we though the answers were or what the world expects the answers to be and really find our own truth. The meditation separately focused on each part of our being, from encouraging an energetic body, to a kind and compassionate heart, to a chakra that brings a reflective and alert mind all to get to the lightness of being where you can flow in harmony with the universe.  The challenge of the mediation to drown out the business of my life produced a great result as I took a big step closer to developing my own personal mantra.  As Deepak shared a mantra is an instrument of the mind that lets you go beyond the mind it is a great way to not just define ourselves to ourselves but to the universe as well.  What is your personal mantra to define your life and encourage you to reach your goals?
