The Matrix of Manifestation: Unbounded Awareness

Energy of Attraction

Welcome to the 21-Day Meditation Experience, Energy of Attraction. We are honored you’re joining us as we seek our true nature and discover our path to health and happiness. You will discover your soul’s purpose and create a life in which all things are within reach.

Day 9

The Matrix of Manifestation: Unbounded Awareness

“I am not absentminded. It is the presence of mind that makes me unaware of
everything else.”  G.K. Chesterton

The skill of manifestation is in using our awakened self-awareness. There are three components to this awareness: expanded consciousness, focused consciousness, and fluid consciousness. The unity of these three creates the matrix of manifestation. Today we will learn about the first aspect: unbounded awareness. This unbounded awareness is our silent, expanded self. It is the un-manifest potentiality from which everything emerges.

In today’s meditation, we will open up to this still, pure self and begin to know it as a unified field of infinite possibilities. In time our meditation experience will mature, and we will learn to think and act from this creative silence, while the mind remains quiet and calm. Our awareness stays unbounded even when the mind has an intention or desire.

DEE:

What a great gift, and weight off my shoulders, to finally be able to quiet my head and live from my heart.  The honor student, perfectionist, intellect is now gone.  She doesn’t serve me anymore.  No more rationalizations.  No more worry.  Just staying in the moment and breezing by from my heart.  Choose, Dee, devil on the shoulder talking to you from your head or angel on the shoulder nurturing you from your heart?

CENTERING THOUGHT

I am pure unbounded awareness.

SANSKRIT MANTRA

Om Hreem
I see the unity behind diversity.

OPRAH:

Welcome friends to Day 9 – Unbounded Awareness.  Now that’s something.  From the moment you open your eyes from the miracle of a new day, and every day, is a miracle.  You are conscious that you really are awake.  You’re aware that you’re breathing and moving and thinking.  The more you know your true self, the deeper your soul awareness, the more powerful is your potential to manifest.

We connect with pure unbounded awareness every time we step away from our hurried lives and get silent.  Give yourself some space just to be.  And embrace the stillness, this oneness, with the source of all things.  Source Energy, we call it, is the path to manifesting the life that your soul, your true self, most deeply desires.  Week 2 is all about manifesting this truth.

As your awareness expands so do the blessed possibilities before you… exponentially.  Know that as far deep and wide as you can imagine, that which created you, the universal energy, the divine source force of all beings, can see and create beyond.  Beyond actually resides in the center of your soul and from deep within your center…beyond…is where the universe is guiding you, if you’re paying attention.

DEE:

I’m so glad I’m learning to live in the moment…in that space right in front of my nose.  And to have faith that everything within and around me is absolutely perfect.  I no longer have to dwell on my past but to use it to gain access to my higher self.  I no longer have to worry about the future as that would mean I am shitting on this moment in front of my nose, that is perfect, and I can never get it back.

When I’m present in the moment I am able to connect with my Higher Power, that which many call the universe, or God, or nature.  My Higher Power consists of them all, and more, and is given permission by me to be in control of my will and my life.  I let God do the driving in our pink convertible Cadillac while we journey through life.  I get to tag along in the passenger seat anxiously awaiting what God has in store for me, teaching me, guiding me, introducing me, nurturing me.

And when I am in that strong connection with my Higher Power I can feel nothing but gratitude and humility.  The blessing surround me.  He has given me a purpose that I am finally ready to take on…”Share your Experience, Strength and Hope with everyone I put into your ‘Dee Bubble’ today.” 

So when God knew that Dee was ready…”When the student is ready, the Master appears”…He pulled me out of the depths of hell in my active alcoholism, guided, nurtured, introduced me to sobriety, and let me taste freedom and goodness.  But remember Dee, “You can’t keep it unless you give it away.”

OPRAH:

So let’s try and go there now and join with the infinite power of the universe by meditating on the miracle of it all.

DEEPAK:

The art of desire is the art of using your self-awareness.  The more you know yourself, the more you can manifest what you want.  The energy of attraction fills an infinite reservoir.  This is pure awareness before it flows out into specific desires.

DEE:

Self-awareness was foreign to me until I worked the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous with a trusted sponsor.  This is where the real light bulb shines!  Discovering me…who I am…what makes me tick…and why?  Holy Moly.  I soaked this up like a sponge and continue to do this on a daily basis. 

This is exciting stuff and helps me to make sense of it all.  I’m finally able to put the pieces of the puzzle together.  All because a Power Greater Than Myself had a grander purpose for me.

And as I get to live as the new Dee, the real Dee, I feel a love and acceptance for myself that I’ve never felt before.  When I bottomed out in my disease I absolutely hated and loathed myself.  I didn’t even deserve a space on this planet.  But today being true to myself and not caring what anyone thinks of me (except me and my God), living a truly rigorous honest life, I am witnessing a pull of people being drawn into my bubble.  It’s awesome!

DEEPAK:

Think of pure awareness as a field of light extending infinitely in all directions.  Here every possibility can become manifest.  Anything you can imagine becomes real here.  So how do you transfer a desire from this infinite field to your daily life?

The Spiritual Tradition of India known as yoga describes three elements that must come together.  The first of these is the ability to go deep into the mind.  The closer you get to your source, the more powerful your intention will be.  To experience unbounded awareness is called Samadhi in Sanskrit.  The name isn’t important.  The important thing is to realize that unbounded awareness is real and you can contact it through meditation.

DEE:

OK.  I’m fairly new with yoga and meditation.  To go deep into my mind is a scary place for me to be.  I was relieved to finally stop being a “thinker” and finally being a “feeler”.  Letting my heart, or gut, lead me and help me to make wise choices seems to work way better for me today that rationalizing the hell out of any unhealthy thought that pops into my mind.

But the hamster wheel still turns pretty rapidly in my brain, way more often that I would like.  But when I am finally able to quiet my mind and get back in touch with my feelings seems to bring me closer to my Source, my intentions, and my unbounded awareness.

DEEPAK:

When you experience unbounded awareness, it will often seem that nothing has happened because we’re all used to bounded awareness which is filled with the thoughts, feelings, sensations and images constantly flowing through the mind.  In between each thought, however, is a gap of silence.  In meditation you dive into the gap and each time you do you have tasted the experience of unbounded awareness.  In this silence is the core of your existence.

DEE:

So I’m hoping that when I can finally have a moment when my mind is quiet that I am, indeed, experiencing unbounded awareness.  It definitely feels right.  I feel in a higher place.

DEEPAK:

Pure awareness may be silent but it isn’t really empty and far from blank.  Here you’re united with everything in creation.  Here, also, you’re completely wakeful making you aware of who you really are.  One can call this region of the mind the Womb of Creation or the Matrix of Manifestation. 

As you say the mantra in meditation there will be gaps where the mantra has disappeared but other thoughts haven’t entered.  It’s quite incredible from the viewpoint of the active mind that these seemingly insignificant blips of silence contain the true power of mind.  But that’s what the World’s Wisdom Traditions teach.  Now you know the first ingredient necessary for manifestation…unbounded awareness.

As we prepare to meditate together let’s take a moment to consider our centering thought, “I am pure unbounded awareness.  I am pure unbounded awareness.”  Now let’s prepare for our meditation.

Make yourself comfortable and close your eyes.  Begin to be aware of your breath and just breathe, slowly and deeply.  With each breath allow yourself to become more deeply relaxed.

Now gently introduce the mantra, “Om Hreem.”  This mantra dissolves the illusion between the self and the object of experience or thought.  As you repeat the mantra notice awareness becoming alert, still and unbounded.  Repeat it silently to yourself, “Om Hreem.”  With each repetition feel your body, mind and spirit open and receive just a little more.

DEE:

Definitely the mantra du jour.  Dissolving the illusion between the self and the object of experience or thought.  Fake it ’til I make it, just like I did when learning to live without alcohol.  Baby steps.  One day at a time.  And slowly it makes sense…”When the student is ready, the Master appears.”

Thank you for being here.  I appreciate your presence and any feedback that you would like to share.  Know that you are never alone on any journey through life.  Together we can get through anything!

With warmest Aloha,

Dee Harris

Whenever you find yourself distracted by thoughts, noises or physical sensations, simply return your attention to silently repeating the mantra, “Om Hreem.  Om Hreem.  Om Hreem.”  Please continue with your meditation.  I’ll mind the time and when it’s time to end you’ll hear me ring a soft bell.  “Om Hreem.  Om Hreem.  Om Hreem.”  Just mentally, “Om Hreem.  Om Hreem.  Om Hreem.”

The Royal Road to Manifestation

Energy of Attraction

Welcome to the 21-Day Meditation Experience, Energy of Attraction. We are honored you’re joining us as we seek our true nature and discover our path to health and happiness. You will discover your soul’s purpose and create a life in which all things are within reach.

Day 8

The Royal Road to Manifestation

“The key to success is to focus our conscious mind on things we desire not things we fear.” ― Brian Tracy

Welcome to the second week of our 21-Day Meditation Experience. In the first week we learned the role of desire in our spiritual fulfillment. This week we will focus on mastering the art of desire to manifest the quality of life we want.

We are always creating our world through our desires, but not always as successfully as we would like. That is why we need to master the art of desire. The reason most intentions do not manifest easily and quickly is because our mind cannot remain alert and attentive with the emerging intention and see it all the way through to its manifestation. To have conscious intention we need expansive, focused, and flexible awareness. Today’s meditation will help awaken this alert consciousness within our desires.

CENTERING THOUGHT

My intention holds the key to fulfillment.

SANSKRIT MANTRA

Chit Sankalpa
My unbounded awareness holds my pure intention.

OPRAH:

Welcome to week two.  We’re ready to master the art of desire.  That’s what we’re talking about today.  Last week we set the foundation for manifesting the life we want by tapping into the truest, most whole intentions within.  During our second week of this 21-Day Meditation Experience we want to shift our focus toward shaping our desires and then mastering the creative process of actually realizing your dreams.  

There’s a key to turning a dream into a reality and that key is having a conscious intention.  In our busy world it’s easy just to slide into a rhythm of being unconscious and going through the motions and moving through your days with little thought about what you’re saying or doing…just getting caught up.  

Manifesting desires is about being awake to life.  As your awareness expands the possibilities of what you can attract in life also expand.  Becoming aware of your life, of every moment, every breath, every thought, being conscious about that, will move you closer toward your highest self, the person you were born to be.  And that, my friends, is what it means to be fully present.  It’s what it means to be aligned.  And it is the most expedient path to fulfilling your deepest, grandest dreams.

DEE:

Being in the moment, this present time in front of my nose.  That is where I strive to be and strive to stay.  But that takes work and consciousness.

Being an alcoholic in recovery has gifted my the opportunity of taking my journey through life to a whole new level.  It has given me purpose.  It has given me “me”.  It has given me spirituality.  It has given me a Power Greater Than Myself over to which I can turn my will and my life.

With these gifts I now realize how important it is for me to stay in the present moment.  My past is behind me and I’m not going backwards.  The future may never appear and I’m so all right with that.  Because this present moment is perfect and all I need.

Being present centers me and reminds me that I am not in control, that my Higher Power is and taking me on a journey to bring me to my highest good.  When the student is ready, the Master appears.  Being present reminds me how grateful I am, and humble to be here.  That I was chosen for this gift of sobriety to share my Experience, Strength and Hope with those who enter my “Dee Bubble”.

OPRAH:

So we’re going to listen in now as Deepak guides us toward that expanded awareness and then we’ll meditate.

DEEPAK:

The second week of our meditation experience is about mastering the art of desire.  Both skill and art are involved because even though everyone is born with desires making them come true takes knowledge and experience.

As we saw in week one every intention is tied to the energy of attraction.  Our lives are filled with the things we’ve manifested.  Manifesting is a life-long process and yet some are much better at it than others.

Society offers various ways to improve your ability to make a desire come true.  Work harder.  Don’t give up.  Nourish your passion and so on.  There are also unspoken advantages such as being born to wealth or with a high IQ which benefit only a few.  But the World’s Wisdom Traditions look elsewhere for the secret of manifesting what you want.

Conscious intention holds the key.  By becoming more conscious we make the creative process more efficient and more aligned to our highest purpose.  It’s all about expanded awareness.  With expanded awareness you automatically see more possibilities.  You aren’t constrained by past conditioning, dramas, and painful memories.  You rise above the level of the problem to the level of the solution.  Above all you activate more of the energy of attraction.

DEE:

Wow!  Conscious intention.  What was that when I was active in the disease of alcoholism and couldn’t go a day without drinking?  My life revolved around the next drink.  I was relinquishing my kids, my husband, my home, my job, my everything…but the saddest, I had lost myself.

But crazy where this journey takes me.  Because of no plan of my own I missed a shift at work because I didn’t “come to” to get myself there like a did a thousand times before.  In humiliation I reach out for help.  I get conscious.  I get a purpose.  I taste expanded awareness.

DEEPAK:

It took thousands of years for great sages, seers, guides and teachers to realize what I’ve told you in a few sentences.  You can’t think, feel or force your way into expanded consciousness.  Fortunately, the path is simple and open to all.

Meditation practice expands your awareness day by day bringing better results in your outer life.  Once your meditations make you comfortable and centered in silence, you can consciously desire and let go.  Silent mind is where all possibilities are contained in seed-form, waiting for the touch of intention to bring them to life.  This is the basis for mastering the art of desire.  You are the creator in your life and fulfillment is your work of art.

DEE:

With the gift of being chosen by my Higher Power to be live a sober life, I have been graced with a spiritual life.  I was introduced to spirituality in the rooms of Alcoholics Anonymous and like a sponge and the alcoholic that I am I wanted more.  I begin meditating.  I begin practicing yoga.  And today, in this present moment, I am content.

My journey, fitting the pieces of my life puzzle together, is all starting to make sense, in my gut (as I prefer to stay as far away from my head as possible today).  I realize that there are no coincidences.  I must surrender to and accept this life that has been presented on my plate.  So easy.  So freeing.  So “I wouldn’t have it any other way!”

Thank you for being here and sharing.  I encourage any and all feedback as we are on our journey TOGETHER.  So comforting to now know that none of us has to trudge our roads of happy destiny alone.

With warmest Aloha, Dee Harris

As we prepare to mediate together let’s take a moment to consider our centering thought, “My intention holds the key to fulfillment.  My intention holds the key to fulfillment.”  Now let’s prepare for our meditation.

Make yourself comfortable and close your eyes.  Begin to become aware of your breath and just breathe, slowly and deeply.  With each breath allow yourself to become more deeply relaxed.

Now gently introduce the mantra, “Chit Sankalpa.”  This mantra awakens consciousness within your desires or intentions.  As you repeat the mantra feel your light of awareness grow brighter and stronger in your thoughts.  Repeat it silently to yourself, “Chit Sankalpa.”  With each repetition feel your body, mind and spirit open and receive just a little more.

Your Deepest Desire

Energy of Attraction

Welcome to the 21-Day Meditation Experience, Energy of Attraction. We are honored you’re joining us as we seek our true nature and discover our path to health and happiness. You will discover your soul’s purpose and create a life in which all things are within reach.

Day 7

Your Deepest Desire

“In the desire of the One to know Himself, we exist.”― Rumi

Congratulations! Today we complete the first week of our journey together. This week we have learned about the power of our desires and how to use Nature to fulfill them. We have learned that happiness and fulfillment are our birthright, and that the most effective way to manifest our dreams is also the easiest way.

Today we discover that our deepest desire is for spiritual awakening, which is the state of fulfillment and completeness. All other desires are variations on this basic desire for actualization. Every desire is a fragment of our being that seeks awakening, completion, and wholeness.

 

CENTERING THOUGHT

My deepest desire is for completeness.

SANSKRIT MANTRA

Ananda Hum
I am pure bliss.

OPRAH:
Welcome to Day 7 – Your Deepest Desire. Well, we’re already completing our first week of connecting with our dreams and how to fulfill them. I’m hoping you’re feeling the energy of attraction within you in a new way. Can you see it showing up?

We’ve begun to align with the deepest part of ourselves where we find the connective tissue between our desires and the power that’s waiting to help manifest them. We’ve seen how desiring from the level of your truest self and trusting the universe to respond to that truth, that’s how you get what you want.

It’s the most powerful path to fulfillment. Focusing, getting clear, embracing positive emotions, surrendering and moving with the current of your true-self. These are the cornerstones of manifesting the life you want.

Today Deepak brings us back to the place where our most whole, powerful intentions reside…within…that is the source of joy, the source of freedom, the source of wholeness. It’s the core from which the energy of attraction gets lit up. There we’ll take the next steps toward making our real dreams, the true ones, come into being.

DEE:
My energy of attraction is totally different today than when I was active in my disease of alcoholism. As a matter of fact, I felt anything but whole. While I sat in Group in a 28- day alcohol treatment program, the group was asked to repeat every morning an affirmation we came up for ourselves. Mine was “I am a good person. I am a whole person,” but in my mind I was neither good nor whole and I hated myself for getting into a place where I couldn’t go a day without drinking.

On my new journey in recovery and with the help of the treatment program, Alcoholics Anonymous, and learning self-care through meditation experiences such as this, I am finally in touch with my true-self. And a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I am finally feeling the joy, freedom and wholeness the Universe, Nature, God, my Higher Power has intended for me!

DEEPAK:

Congratulations for completing the first week of our meditation experience. You’ve acquired the foundation for turning intentions into reality. I’m sure there have been surprises along the way because this vision of effortlessly achieving what you want isn’t like the conventional advice given by society.

DEE:
In my sobriety I have been painstakingly trying to unlearn the conventional advice given me by society. It definitely didn’t nurture my highest good. With the help of AA’s 12 Steps and working with a trusted sponsor, I have learned how fear-based I have behaved most of my life. Because of society!

So I am unlearning that “more is better”, more money, more power, more stuff. I am unlearning to gain your approval because your approval doesn’t serve me. I am unlearning to put these superficial goals first and to take care of me, to nurture me, to love me for who and what I am. I am finally free to be myself!

DEEPAK:
You’ve learned that the world in here is connected to the world out there which means that your intentions can flow from your true self to find fulfillment in every area of life. People may spend a lot of time and energy making their desires very, very specific. But what really gives any desire its power is how strongly it’s connected to the ground of being…the true-self.

Behind every desire, however small, is the energy of attraction, which brings the outcome of desire. The energy of attraction is most powerful near the source, just as electricity is most powerful when it comes out of the generator. Therefore, your deepest desires are actually the easiest to fulfill.

No doubt this comes as a surprise since conventional wisdom holds just the opposite. Your deepest desires can come true naturally and without struggle because your deepest desires are signals from your true-self. The force of evolution in the universe supports whatever is true and promotes harmonious growth.

The desires people spend the most time chasing after, such as more money, a better job, and a bigger home, also employ the energy of attraction. But the path that follows is weaker and more indirect. Why? Because the focus is on the external goal not on consciousness.

This isn’t to judge against getting a nicer life, but when you pursue love, beauty, creativity, innovation, meaning and a higher vision of life, the energy of attraction becomes much stronger. Its strength comes from wholeness. The more whole you are, the more powerful your intentions.

It’s the same as seeing a whole picture of Niagara Falls or the Grand Canyon instead of the scattered pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. The picture is there in the scattered pieces, but it’s not whole enough to recognize.

A secret of the World’s Wisdom Traditions is that every single desire, no matter how small, is working toward one goal…to make you more complete. Only through feeling whole will you feel fulfilled. Through meditation you get in touch with the primal desire for wholeness, happiness and freedom. Let this be your personal vision. We should also embrace every smaller, more specific desire along the way.

DEE:

Getting sober has allowed me to put the pieces of “my” puzzle together and start to make sense of this journey called my life. It’s been magical. It’s been meaningful. And it’s been necessary to bring me to the place today, which is right where I am supposed to be…and it is perfect!

Today I feel complete, whole, fulfilled and content. Just like The Promises state in the AA Big Book, “You will find a new happiness and a new freedom”. I have, indeed, found these gifts, along with immense gratitude. And today I have been given a purpose and excitement to give back what was so freely given me in my despair. I “get to” share my Experience, Hope and Strength with everyone who enters my “Dee Bubble”, offering respect, mindfulness, compassion and love.

Thank you for being here for me. Know that I am here for you so please contact me anytime. Together we can get through anything and make our world a better place!

The Power of Attention

Energy of Attraction

Welcome to the 21-Day Meditation Experience, Energy of Attraction. We are honored you’re joining us as we seek our true nature and discover our path to health and happiness. You will discover your soul’s purpose and create a life in which all things are within reach.

 

Day 6

The Power of Attention

CENTERING THOUGHT

My attention activates my desires.

SANSKRIT MANTRA
Hum Sa
Unboundedness is my true nature.

OPRAH:

Welcome. It’s Day 6 already – The Power of Attention is what we’re talking about today. Hah, the power of attention. It’s such a perfect name for today’s meditation because attention really is your power source. Nothing in your life happens willy-nilly. You’re creating your own reality by what you choose your attention to and what you give your attention to, what you focus on, expands.

DEE:

My focus is to stay in the present moment, to be mindful of what is right in front of my nose. It’s not easy while the hamster wheel is spinning around in my head. But if I can have the hamster take just a short time-out, I can remind myself to get mindful, respectful, compassionate and caring. Then I start to get OK. From there I remember to get grateful and humble and remember I’m just along for the ride while my Higher Power takes me to where I need to go in my life.

OPRAH:

How often have you heard others say or you even thought to yourself, “I’m just trying to make it through this day.” It’s no surprise that if that is your attitude the energy that you bring to the day, that’s exactly what happens. You barely just make it through the day, rather than fully flourish.

What we dwell on and focus on is what we receive. So if you want more in your life, more connection, more meaning, more fulfillment, you have to learn to shift your attention, your power source to something deeper and truer. And from that pure and sacred place you can attract more abundance and goodness into your life. It’s bigger than any dream that you’ve ever imagined for yourself.

DEE:

This is so true, and I’m not too keen on believing in what isn’t tangible. But it works. I’ve tried it. So if I turn my will and my life over to the care of a god of my own understanding, and that includes my to-do list, I listen to my gut and then I do the footwork of what feel right at that moment.

I tend to not be so stressed out because I’m not in control. But what needs to get done, gets done! And when I’m able to just go with the flow, my life flows more fluidly without the rapids. Go figure. Can’t explain it, except for this newfound freedom must be attracting more of the same.

OPRAH:

So let’s focus our attention on Deepak’s wisdom in today’s meditation and watch and see what shows up.

DEEPAK:

If you want a dream to come true, it takes more than dreaming. The mind needs to focus in a special way, using the power of intention. Electric current in a house can be strong or weak and the same holds true for our intentions. Whenever there’s a problem with your electricity, it can exist anywhere along the line, beginning at the power station. In the case of having an intention that comes true, the power source is attention.

 

DEE:

When I feel my mind, body or spirit is having a problem with my “electric current” I immediately see if I’m in H.A.L.T. (hungry, angry, lonely or tired). Usually I am and I tend to it quickly. Self-care is key for me that has never been my priority before getting sober. Today I am grateful to not have to pick up a drink and to have learned how to not only care for myself, but to love myself. I never did or had this when I was active in my disease.

DEEPAK:

What you pay attention to will grow. And if your attention is focused from the level of the true-self, it can attract anything and everything to you. In a word, attention activates the energy of attraction. Every wish or desire is like a tiny seed which contains the blueprint for the tree that manifests from the seed.

The seed of desire, which is also the seed of every intention, needs nourishment to grow. If you want a desire to manifest, here are some important ways to put the right attention on it.
•Have a clear intention. Don’t muddy it with compromises and excuses for why it won’t come true.

•Have positive emotions around your desire. Feel how good it will be to fulfill it. Believe that what you want is beneficial for you, without any negative consequences to those around you.
•Be prepared for any response the universe brings and be flexible about how you go from there. Feel confident that hidden forces will come to your aid once your desire is released to the universe.

DEE:
Having the faith that my Higher Power, God, the Universe, or whatever you want to call it, makes all the difference in the world. If I have an intention and my Higher Power believes that I am ready for it to come to fruition, then it does. If it doesn’t, I don’t pout or cop a resentment because I know that I am not ready for it at this time in my life.

There are no coincidences. Everything in my life has happened and is happening for a reason…and that reason is for my highest good. If the student isn’t ready, then the Master doesn’t appear. Period. Move on, Dee.

And if I choose to live an optimistic and positive life with that kind of attitude, that is what I reap. More of the same. My glass is always half-full, no matter how tragic the circumstances around me. Again, I am not in control of people, places or things. I have to learn to go with the flow…which is life…and know I’m doing my best.

DEEPAK:

Being able to use your attention in this way depends most of all on your state of consciousness. Desires that originate in the true-self easily reach fulfillment. Desires that arise in an agitated, worried, confused mind will struggle to be fulfilled.

In meditation you expand and deepen your awareness. The more this happens the less effort is required to have successful intentions. When we allow our intentions to flow from the silence that is the basis of the mind, the energy of attraction automatically obeys what the mind desires.

DEE:

Such a great gift…sobriety! Again, no coincidences my journey from living in the depths of hell in my disease to the place I am today. Not only was I able to learn about the disease of alcoholism in rehab, I got to learn who and what I am by working the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Wow! It all makes so much sense now. It’s so much easier now, just surrendering everything and being the real me having learned who I am by working the Steps. I no longer have to live in fear of your thoughts of me. I can be comfortable in my own skin. I can love myself. And I can share my Experience, Strength and Hope with all who enter my Dee Bubble. How magical is that? because I know if I don’t give it away, I can’t keep it (I tried and found myself in that deep, dark place once again).

Thank you for allowing me to share my passion, my optimism and hope. And please leave a feedback if you wish. I love sharing our stories!

With warmest aloha, Dee Harris

As we prepare to meditate together let’s take a moment to consider our centering thought, “My attention activates my desires. My attention activates my desires.” Now let’s prepare for our meditation. Make yourself comfortable and close your eyes.

Begin to be aware of your breath and just breathe, slowly and deeply. With each breath allow yourself to become more deeply relaxed.

Now gently introduce the mantra, “Hum Sa.” This mantra activates the transformative attention of pure awareness. As you repeat the mantra feel the awakening of your powerful attention. Repeat it silently to yourself, “Hum Sa.” With each repetition feel your body, mind and spirit open and receive just a little more.

Whenever you find yourself distracted by thoughts, noises, or physical sensations, simply return your attention to silently repeating the mantra, “Hum Sa. Hum Sa. Hum Sa.” Please continue with your meditation. I’ll mind the time and when it’s time to end you’ll hear me ring a soft bell. “Hum Sa. Hum Sa. Hum Sa.” Just mentally, “Hum Sa. Hum Sa. Hum Sa.”
