Life is a Choice

It’s official.  Oprah and Deepak’s 21-Day Meditation Experience, Shedding the Weight: Mind, Body and Spirit has come to an end, but I hope not all the progress made toward understanding that life is a choice. Yes, we write our life story based on our choices and perceptions. So instead of continuing to live life unconsciously, why not choose to live a conscious life, aware of making choices that will lead us to the person we want to be vs. the person we have been.

I define myself by choosing who I want to be - yoursassyself.com

I know it’s a lot to wrap your brain around, but this meditation series does a great job at getting you there. If you missed any of it, you can find my week one recap here, my week two recap here, and my week three recap below.  Enjoy and let me know what you think.

Often, when we allow ourselves to live an unconscious life, we slip into predefined boxes. We either see ourselves as loveable or unlovable,  winners or lossers, beautiful or ugly, we can go on & on. But @deepakchopra reminds us that we don’t have to continue to put ourselves in these boxes.  To keep us from doing so Deepak suggests that anytime we feel ourselves slipping, that we just  say “No, I don’t want to be put in a box.” It may seem silly and too simple to work, but just by allowing ourselves time to pause and letting awareness in, we’ve already begun giving ourselves our power back. And power is what spears transformation and lifts our burdens. So the choice is ours. We can choose to embrace our power or give it up. I don’t know about you,  but I’m embracing my power to its fullest! #oprah #deepakchopra #sheddingtheweight #meditation #embrace #power #controlyourlife

When you become lighter in mind, body, and spirit, life looks different because you’re at ease with yourself. You begin to realize that the feelings of failure and lack, which arise when you don’t like what you see, are a result of separative thinking that we allow to judge us with punishing thoughts. But according to @deepakchopra that’s only an illusion, because in the end, there’s only you. And through meditation you regain control of all your pieces to become whole and powerful in your truth, free from the restraints of old habits and self-criticisms. Thus allowing your expansive spirit to flow, unlimited and open to every possibility. And that’s when life begins to flow for you, filled with positivity and opportunity. Enjoy! #oprah #deepakchopra #sheddingtheweight #meditation #letgo #whole #trueself

Today marks the end of our 21 day meditation journey. We’re now poised to have small victories and breakthroughs each day, as we allow ourselves to shed small burdens or self judgements in an effort to return to wholeness. In doing so, we’re not only bringing light and joy to ourselves, but to those around us. And the more we open up and share our new found lightness, the more we help to transform the collective energy of the world. Because the one thing I know is that we’re not in this alone, we’re in this together. So why not share a piece of your light to lift up someone else up and support each other as we transform ourselves and the world. Cheers to all the positivity and light that is destined to surround you and those around you. #oprah #deepakchopra #sheddingtheweight #meditation #transformation #loveandlight
