Today is Day 12 of the 21 day meditation challenge Desire and Destiny with Deepak Chopra and Oprah. The centering thought is "I am inspired. I'm unstoppable." But today I felt anything but. I had a million things to do and not enough time to do it. Has this ever happened to you? You start thinking about all the things you have to accomplish and the next thing you know you're crying in the car on the way to the dry cleaners? No? Just me? Cool.
First, I want to say I'm sorry for not posting yesterday. I made a promise that I would do at least 21 posts in 21 days of this meditation practice. It looks like I'm going to finish in 22 days instead because yes, I failed you and did not meditate yesterday. I know! Judge me if you will. I'm like a politician breaking his vows within the first 100 days, except in my case I only made it 10 (In the words of Homer Simpson, "D'oh!" ) In my defense, I'm going through a difficult situation in my personal life at the moment (I'm not ready to talk about it yet, but I promise I will!) and needed to have a girls' night of champagne cocktails and seeing Ingrid Goes West (which I HIGHLY recommend) to get my mind off of my self-wallowing misery. (Plus it's dark in the movie theater and I had really bad raccoon eyes.)
The POINT today is focusing on what we TRULY want and following our intuition. Supposedly, as we continue to meditate, the still, small voice within will get louder and louder until we know what to do. This morning, during my meditation, my inner voice must have been asleep because the only guidance I got was that I should run a couple miles after work to burn off all the crap I'd eaten last night at The Cheesecake Factory. BUT I have had some experiences with intuition in the past.
