If you’re feeling like you’re in a bit of a rut, or you’re looking for some peace in your life, look no further than this meditation challenge.
November 3 kicks off Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey’s 21-Day meditation challenge, which focuses on “energy of attraction.” If you’re new to the 21-day challenges, let us give you a bit of a rundown.
Once you register for the challenge, every day for three weeks, a new (and FREE!) 22 minute (roughly) meditation will be delivered to your inbox. Every day will be a new centering though and sanskirt mantra, which you will repeat to yourself during the session. Oprah usually kicks off the meditation with some wise words, followed by Chopra giving a more in depth explanation about the thought of the day. Then, it’s just sweet music playing while you concentrate on your breath and your goal for the day. Chopra’s website explains that through this particular meditation experience, you will be able to “reveal the secrets to attracting all the love, success, and happiness you desire.”
If this sounds like a bunch of nonsense to you, we totally get it. Meditation can bring out the skeptics, but since we’ve actually participated in one of the previous challenges, we can honestly say it works. Of course, it works differently for everyone, but really, even just having 20 minutes of quiet time, where you’re doing nothing but coming back down to earth, is incredibly rare these days. So with this meditation, you’re reminded to take time for yourself and to let go of negativity from the day, and set a new intention for the next. And the best part is, if you miss one night, you don’t have to worry. The website keeps the previous session for five days before closing it.
Plus, there has been endless amount of research showing the benefits of meditating. Including: lowering stress levels, reducing muscle aches and boosting self-acceptance. We strongly recommend you give this 21-day meditation challenge a try — you really have nothing to lose and possibly a whole lot to gain! Head over to Chopra Center Meditation website to register.
