I want to invite all of you to take the 21-day Meditation Challenge from the Chopra Center. I registered for my first one last Summer 2011 because I wanted to learn how to meditate. I have attempted to meditate a few handful of times, but was not sure if I was properly meditating. It was not a routine in my life, either. I felt that meditation took a lot of time from my already-busy day. But when I received an email for this challenge, I thought that it would be a great guide for me. It was a great guide.
Each day during my lunch break, I sat in my car and listened to the recorded email I received by my smartphone. Most sessions took an average of 10-20 minutes; this left me with time to prep myself for the second half of my work day and eat my lunch. What I learned, too, was that the “ohms” commonly connected with meditation is a great focusing tool. On a daily basis, my mind races around the To-Do lists I have to complete, even while meditating. But when I sing or hum “ohm” a few times, my mind thinks about making the noise and NOT my lists.
Give it a Try! I found myself excited about receiving these emails for 21-days. I hope you do, too.
