Day One of the Deepak Chopra (and Oprah) free 21-day experience which is called 'Manifesting Grace through Gratitude'.
I was worried this wasn't going to work, I'd signed up on their website (here) and had registered for the free 21-day experience, and I'd also downloaded their App to my iPad, but there were no audios in the 'Free Experience' page on the app yesterday when it was supposed to start. I was getting emails from them but no audio to be seen!
However I think because NZ is ahead of the States time-wise it was delayed .. and today the first audio arrived! Happy days!!
So I just listened to the audio. There was an introduction from Oprah and then Deepak spoke about gratitude and grace and then he left us with a mantra - Dhanya Vad meaning 'I feel gratitude' - to repeat over in our minds as we breathed deeply and listened to their soft music. Then he rang a bell and had a few more words before signing off.
Total 21 minutes! It was lovely. I have to be honest I found their music a bit off-putting while I was being left to meditate but I will no doubt get used to it and I'm sure they know what they're doing in leaving it there.
And lo! I have just found attached to today's audio a page called 'Journal' in which they prompted me to write answers to the following questions 'Write in your journal what grace means to you', 'Make a list of the people in your life you are most grateful for', 'Now, list one specific thing about each of those people that you are thankful for' and finally 'Use this space to reflect further on your experience today'.
I love all of this!! So they are really leading me through this 21-day experience, it's almost like a course. I'm totally 100% into it and recommend anyone who wants to come along for the ride.
Love, Mrs D xxx
