Had Enough of Winter? Plant Spring in Your Soul!

Launching February 20th:
FREE Deepak Chopra 21-Day Guided Meditation Recordings

Woman Meditating at SunsetA well-known Teacher once said, “I have so much to do today – if I hope to accomplish everything on my list, I must meditate twice as long.”

Most of us are more likely to say, “I have so much to do today, there’s no way I have time for meditation or anything else!”  I used to say that myself until I figured out that I have all the time I need for the things that matter most.

My task is simply to discern exactly what matters most in each moment.

The funny thing is that meditating on a regular basis actually makes me much more efficient and productive.  People throughout the world have long reported a similar result, whether they are Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, Jew or atheist.

For those who might want to give it a try — or for those who are already committed to meditation — I wanted to share a great opportunity with you.  Four times a year, through the Chopra Meditation Center, Deepak Chopra offers a NEW completely FREE series of 21 guided meditations.  I love the programs in this series and use them myself.  His next program is launching on Monday, February 20th.

The good news about Chopra’s program is that it’s a simple daily download, with each meditation lasting about 10-20 minutes.

Whether you’re a seasoned meditator or you’ve heard that it might reduce your stress and increase your sense of well-being, this program has a great deal to offer.  For those new to meditation, it eliminates the perceived barrier of “too much silence” by easing you into a healthy new habit through a theme that ties the 21 sessions together with lots of speaking and guidance, very little pure silence.

And, for the seasoned meditator, it’s a great way to expand your options and approach.   All meditation paths have merit because at their core they are all about the myriad ways we can hold ourselves in mindfulness.  Doing the dishes, walking the dog, feeding the cat — all become meditative when entered into with focus and awareness.  We are human beings, not human doings.  Just me, just here, just now, just be.

Here’s how The Chopra Center introduces this series:

“Are you ready to experience greater health, deep inner peace and genuine happiness?  If your answer is YES, we invite you to join us for the Chopra Center 21-Day Meditation Challenge™ as we embark on a Mind-Body Odyssey!”

About djwlifecoach

As a retired board-certified coach, author and Reiki master teacher, I continue to share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. What's love got to do with minimizing stress and getting unstuck? Everything! My book, "Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life!" (Hay House/Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world's largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout, including a sustained 80-pound weight loss and freedom from 10 years of debilitating depression, led to finding my purpose sharing hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. Through healing and self-exploration, I discovered that loving yourself unconditionally is the key to transforming your personal life, your work and the world. With attention and intention, I learned to live in alignment with love through a wealth of energy-shifting tools and techniques that help me reduce stress, anxiety and overwhelm by releasing limiting beliefs, emotions and habits. My books, blog and radio episodes help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness.

I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my husband, Wilson, and the coaching cats who manage my life—SiddhaLee and Maisy Jane.

  1. Just finished Day 3 of the Meditation Challenge. Each day is better than the one before as I grow more comfortable with allowing myself to relax! Thank you, Deborah, for the recommendation. I’m so glad that I’m taking the time to do this just for me.
