When Deepak Chopra first started meditating, he hoped to get rid of a pack-a-day smoking habit and relieve stress. He achieved those goals and, in the process, changed the hard-wiring of his brain. While speaking with Oprah at yesterday’s Super Soul Sunday, he admitted to being emotionally free with no resentments, no guilt and no one left to forgive.
Forty years of daily meditation has transformed his life. And now Deepak Chopra invites all of us to participate in his free 21-Day Meditation Challenge.
Why 21 days?
It takes that long to change the hard-wiring our brains and form a habit. As more neural networks are created, we start to see opportunities where others see problems. This lays the foundation for creating abundance, the main focus of the challenge. And if we continue meditating for 66 days, a groove is created in the brain.
Deepak reiterated the fact that mediation is a part of every spiritual tradition and has nothing to do with ideology or doctrine. Very simply, meditation is a progressive quieting of the mind that allows the spirit to speak in silence.
Meditation tips from Deepak Chopra…
The best times to meditate are first thing in the morning and late afternoon between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m.
Fifteen to twenty minutes, twice a day, is enough.
Sitting is preferable to lying down.
Observe the breath, but do not manipulate it.
Visualize your dreams before, not during meditation.
Most important of all…BE COMFORTABLE.
My body is busy, I’m not.
Set the intention and let the universe do the rest.
The best way to get rid of your enemies is to increase their capacity for happiness.
Our genes are coding our karma.
Science is how God thinks.
We limit ourselves by defining ourselves.
I want to know what God thinks. The rest are details. Albert Einstein.
