I hope you are being good to yourself throughout this journey. Remember, this is not a journey about self-judgement, it’s one of self-discovery!
Start by doing what’s necessary; then do what’s possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible. ~Francis of Assisi
At the start of every year, many of you set forth intentions, in the form of New Year’s resolutions to take with you throughout the year. Intention is one of the most powerful forces in the Universe because your intentions will determine your outcome in life.
Today’s guided meditation had a resounding effect on me; thus far it was one that resonated with me the most because it hit home for me on so many levels. It brought me back to my roots and without giving too much away, all I’m going to say is, there’s something about the allure of ocean that brings peace to the soul! I hope the session will resonate with you as much as it did me.
Like the junky that I am, I listened to this audio several times, each time taking away a new message. I invite you to be kind to yourself, live without judging yourself and live your life with clear intent, surrender and use your imagination to create the abundance that you want in your life. May you be inspired in all that you do today!
“I place my intention into the vast ocean of all possibilities and allow the universe to work through me.”
Write this phrase of the day in your notebook and reflect on it throughout the day.
MEDITATION & MANTRA
Attention energizes; intention transforms. In today’s meditation, we will look at the Law of Intention and Desire.
This is the Sanskrit Mantra you will repeat during meditation: Om Ritam Namah
Reflect on the following questions and record your impressions in your journal:
QUESTION 1: What is your highest intention in life?
QUESTION 2: What can you do to make this happen?
QUESTION 3: How will this intention best serve you and others?
WELCOME TO DAY 7! Congratulations on your continued commitment to cultivating abundance.
I would like to express my gratitude to anyone who is still on this journey. Even if you are not on this journey, I express gratitude to you for visiting my blog.
I commend your courage, dedication and commitment to breaking through barriers by sticking with it!I once read that nothing happens by accident when your soul gets involved.
Perhaps that’s the difference between serendipity (a “pleasant surprise”) and synchronicity (“meaningful coincidences”).
The more we delve into our unique and beautiful souls, the more we will experience synchronicity vibrations which will indicate to us that know we’re on our true path.
All we have to do is show up and show out in a way that allows us to learn from or experiences, to move through it and to really feel what we need to feel to enhance our personal growth. As Deepak Chopra indicates in this meditation segment mind matter and spirit work together to manifest abundance and that our source of abundance is unlimited and eternal.
Continue to live in Gratitude and Abundance
PHRASE OF THE DAY:
“I use my conscious intention to manifest my dreams”Write this phrase of the day in your notebook and reflect on it throughout the day.
MEDITATION & MANTRA
This is the Sanskrit Mantra you will repeat during meditation: Sat Chit Ananda
Create a list of people that make you feel uncomfortable. This might include people from the list of the first day, i.e. those who have pushed you to grow and have brought something meaningful to your life.
Here, we are talking about the energy of discomfort.
It can be your relatives or people who are now far from you.
Your litmus test here is a feeling of discomfort, “I feel uncomfortable”Include the person even if you only feel, occasionally, uncomfortable with communicating with this person.
For example, it can be neighbours, employees, bosses, family members, members of the government.
Remember that these people may trigger you, and at the same time, may also be your teachers or mentors.
Examples: I included on my list former bosses. One made me feel uncomfortable because she was always pushing me in terms of expanding my knowledge and skills. Hindsight, she saw my potential when I didn’t. The other made me uncomfortable because in a toxic way she was always very critical of my work and never encouraged growth of any kind. Both made me feel discomfort but in different ways.
Welcome to DAY 5! Congratulations you’ve made it to our 5th day!“
Those who attack do not know they are blessed. They attack because they believe they are deprived. Give, therefore, of your abundance, and teach your brothers [and sisters] theirs. Do not share their illusions of scarcity, or you will perceive yourself as lacking.”-A Course in Miracles
Take a deep breath, TRUST that even amidst all the current chaos, you have the time and resources to explore this next adventure. This next project can be a bit intimidating for some but it feels so good to see you all here and to know you’re following along your OWN path to abundance.
Keep in mind that if you are not in a place where you feel like you are ready to share this practice with others, that is perfectly ok. Personally, I understand that everyone is on their own timing and I believe that we should all stick with this with whatever decision you make. Give yourself Grace.
Regardless of how you approach today’s task Stick with it! Do not quit the journey.
Please write the phrase and do the meditation with whatever decision you make! And know that you are appreciated!
PHRASE OF THE DAY: Write this in your notebook and reflect on it throughout the day. “Today I embrace my potential to be, do, and have whatever I can dream.”
MEDITATION & MANTRA
This is the Mantra you will repeat during meditation: “Sat Chit Ananda”
MESSAGE OF THE DAY: Today we will penetrate the field of all possibilities, appearing in the silence of meditation. The unlimited power of the universe is always at your disposal. By making intuitive decisions rooted in this unified field, you can express your deepest desires.
In your everyday life, continue to cultivate silence. Spend more time in nature; immerse yourself in beautiful music; listen to uplifting and inspiring stories; and surround yourself with optimistic, like-minded people. By doing this, you will see how the field of all possibilities is widely revealed in front of you to help your dreams come true.
Today’s task is based on the law of ENERGY EXCHANGE.
EVERYTHING is made of energy.
And we are constantly exchanging energy with one another.
Energy does not disappear. It simply changes form.
If someone has departed, then someone has arrived.
If you send something out, then something will return to you.
If you want to achieve balance, learn to give AND receive.
Today’s exercise is up to you.
If you do not feel ready, that is fine! We’ll see you tomorrow with Day 6 Meditation
Right now, I suggest doing your meditation FIRST before diving into reading about the task!!
For those who would like to create your own group, today’s task is completely devoted to the EXCHANGE. And, it is a tremendous turning point in our journey!
Starting today, YOU are given the opportunity to be responsible for your very own abundance group on any social media platform or blog as I’ve done here.
Yes – you read that correctly!
It does not have to be big or encompass all your FB friends or WhatsApp group invites. It might be 2-3 people, though they do say it takes the same amount of effort to accomplish something small, as it does to accomplish something big.
Every day, YOU will conduct your group through tasks from 0 to 21 days, just like you get, and will continue to receive from me. Today, however, you are creating your group and sending “Task 0” How do you open a group?
Choose a profile photo that symbolizes abundance to you
Name the group “21 Days of Abundance” or another name that works for you
Invite your friends, family, community…
Explain the intention of the group and say that there will be daily tasks
Copy, edit and send the daily messages I am posting or create your own message
You can edit to fit your personality, or simply use my messages; however, the tasks and meditations MUST remain the same! You can either copy and edit directly into your social media group or Text or WhatsApp, or paste into Notes, WORD, or anywhere else you feel comfortable rewriting and crafting the copy to incorporate your personal style and language. And remember, it is perfectly fine to use my posts. Just be sure to use the correct dates, etc.
Be advised, you can either download the files from youtube.
This is about sharing Abundance!
Now, read the next section carefully
Do not decide for other people whether it will be interesting to them or not.
Perhaps it is this flow of plenty that they need right now. Perhaps it is this community while we all practice social distancing.
And YOU will be the conductor of abundance in the lives of these beautiful people!
Potential participants must be prepared to become part of such a process.
We are all free to make our own choices. For me, this became a practice of letting go and finding wisdom in knowing that each person was doing exactly what was right for them.
I schedule the posts ahead of time, when I find the time
For some, this task may seem extremely difficult due to the extra effort that will have to be made, or because of fear of failure or fear of the unknown or the fear of “how it looks”. Whatever that voice is, I challenge, encourage, and invite you to break through that barrier.
It helps to realize one’s fears, doubts, and limitations that interfere with growth.
In full transparency, I was excited to share this as I was looking for a way to show people abundancy. As for the person who initially invited me she questioned whether she had enough emotional energy and the capacity to commit to facilitating this during this pandemic.
And then she challenged herself- which has been rewarding. Everyone is in a different frame of mind and that is ok.
It has been very moving and inspiring to see who put their hand up and committed to this journey – and it has been incredibly rewarding reconnecting with so many of you.
A lot of people will send you reasons why NOT – but YOU will have created a space for why YES! Let the love in your heart expand because you can contribute to the well-being of others.
OPTIONAL: Consider setting-up your “Day 0” for Saturday or Sunday, so that your Day 1 falls on a Sunday or Monday. For many people, starting on a Sunday or Monday will feel like a good, fresh start to their week, and to this journey.
Even so, create your group today and put out a general post letting people know that you are launching a “21 Days of Abundance” group, just as I did with my initial post. Again, keep in mind, if you are not in a place where you feel like you are ready to do this, it’s ok.
Give yourself Grace. Do not quit this journey, keep on the path to a more abundant life for you! Remember, completing this task is not obligatory. If you choose to skip it, see you on day 6! Stick with me here, regardless of how you approach today’s task
I believe in a bit of routine because an unstructured day can get away from you. Although one needs to have some free time to schedule mental and spiritual health, along with physical exercise.
Everyone has something different going on with their daily. A lot of you had to change your daily routines of what you considered normal before the quarantine. Whatever you are considering routine these days, remember to take time for yourself.
I have told many people that you need to take care of yourself first and that is not selfish. If you are not mentally, emotionally and physically okay, how are you supposed to take care of others without causing harm to yourself?
Many of you have found creative ways to get yourself through quarantine- baking, exercising, art, writing, etc. We have found time to do those things and we have found time to do these exercises. It might not be in the morning but we somehow get it done with all our other responsibilities.
Remember this is not a race and this is at your pace. Remember to breathe.
That is one of the gifts that this meditation has given me.
Even after so many years of meditating, as I mentioned before, my mind still wanders when doing these meditations. It is just part of the human experience. I say the mantras over and over concentrating on the meanings. Sometimes I speak it quietly, while other times I think it. I hope that helps you if you find your mind wandering.
I hope, for whatever reason you are here that you are finding strength, hope, some peace in the practice.
PHRASE OF THE DAY
Write this phrase of the day in your notebook and reflect on it throughout the day.“ From this moment forward, I invite unlimited abundance into my life.”
MEDITATION AND MANTRA
This is the Mantra you will repeat during meditation: “Aham Bramasmi”
Make a list of people whom you consider to be prosperous in your family or your environment.
These are people you personally know and have access to. They may have achieved their goals in life, all or in part, are happy and filled with joy, or are perceived by you as such.
IMPORTANT! We are not talking only about financial prosperity; the required component is the joy, the happiness, that this person is experiencing! These can be people from the previous list that you have compiled. How long your list is, does not matter! Even two is enough. They should reflect for you what it looks like to live a life of abundance and prosperity. This can have varied iterations.
Please remember, the more attention and reflection you give to these simple tasks, the greater the return.
Write the answers to the questions below in your notebook or simply answer them to yourself:
QUESTION 1: What does it mean to you to be immersed in pure consciousness?
QUESTION 2: How can you bring this awareness into your everyday life?
QUESTION 3: How has the practice of meditation helped you connect with your pure consciousness?
I am so happy that you are here and honoured to be on this journey with you! In this time of physical distancing, this is a beautiful and powerful way to share space with all of you from around the world. 🌍
This is an experiential adventure in shifting your abundance mindset and consciousness AND attracting that new abundance awareness into every aspect of your life! The experience is a constant stretch to expand and grow your abundance & prosperity.
✨ You deserve it, we all deserve it!✨
I am also working my way through these meditations and exercises; I am about a week ahead of you. I have found profound connection and benefit from this practice.
I believe in the power of Universal Laws and that we create our own reality. This 21 Day Meditation is a wonderful way to find a greater sense of peace, groundedness, and optimism for what the universe holds for us all.
It has inspired me to go forward with this challenge fully engaged. Remember, you are ENOUGH and this is not a race. This is not one more thing to cause anxiety about whether or not you are achieving. It is to be done at your OWN PACE, with mindfulness and by giving yourself grace.
You are so worth setting aside this time each day, whenever it works for you. If you ever want to share your thoughts or experiences, please private message me.
✨✨DAY 1 ✨✨
PHRASE OF THE DAY: “Today, I behold all the abundance that surrounds me”
Write this phrase in your notebook and reflect on it throughout the day. ✨✨ Optional: You can write it down on sticky notes and place them around the home to remind you.
MEDITATION & MANTRA:🧘♀️ The meditation (found in the audio, following) can be done before or after the task. I tend to do the meditation first to get centered, but it is up to you!
This is the Sanskrit Mantra you will repeat during meditation: “Soham”
YOUR TASK: In your new notebook, make a list of 50 people that have influenced your life. They can be both living or already departed, your relatives and friends, celebrities, writers and personalities, whom you do not necessarily know personally. Everyone who has influenced you and contributed to your growth & development. For myself, I wrote down people who influenced my idea of family, lifestyle, fashion, travel, etc. I also included my first boss who I was not on good terms with when I resigned. So your list can include anyone who was a positive influence on you at any phase of your life, her positive was teaching me what NOT to tolerate on a job.
The list must have at least 50 names.
In the process of making a list, think about why you chose the person.
What has changed in your life for the better?
Move calmly and thoughtfully. Remember the best things about each person in the list and what they bring into your life. (If someone comes up through your day, add them to your list!)
Trust the process. Upon completion, please write: “Day 1 Done” in the comments section of this post. Remember that is the ONLY message to post in the group chat. Please send any questions directly to me in a private message. Again, you are welcome to discontinue the journey at any time, if you decide not to continue.
The past few years have been rough, I’ve found myself in another storm. A storm like all other, testing my faith and strength. One that has also made me question my own sanity and this year’s indeed the most challenging and nothing before has prepared me for the journey ahead. So I’m just riding each wave as it comes. I know I’m not unique in my circumstance but my reaction is, there is not a single soul on this planet that has not or will not go through some storm(s) that will make them question their existence. We are all pupils of life and what happens on that journey, how well we weather the storms in our lives depends on how well we’ve adjusted our sails. Most days I still find myself riding the waves of uncertainty but I adjust my sails accordingly because I know in the end my faith will continue to keep me strong, my family will continue to keep me grounded and hope will keep me going!
