  • Day 1 Who Am I? "The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why." Mark Twain Mantra: So Hum. I am. Welcome to our 21-Day Experience, Desire and Destiny! We are delighted and honored that you are joining us, as together we expand our understanding of ourselves and we open to the magnificent lives we are meant to liveour destinies. Our deepest, most heartfelt desires are like stars in a constellation . . . brilliant, twinkling lights that show us the way and create pathways to our true destinies. It is our souls mission to connect with, cherish, and realize our desires in order to live our lives to the fullest and make our greatest contributions to the world. In fulfilling our heart-held dreams we flourish, serving ourselves and others from a place of bliss, generosity, and love. Our journey starts at the beginning, in the center, as we go within to listen to our deepest truth. Mindful Moment Today is a new beginning, the first step on a very special journey. Along the way there will be new sights to see and concepts to learn. As you travel through this day, take time to acknowledge yourself and celebrate your choice to live mindfully and wholeheartedly! With your mind and heart open, you are creating the space to manifest the life of your dreams. Day 2 Empowered Me "Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself." Chief Seattle Mantra: Om Kriyam Namah. My actions are aligned with cosmic law. Today we explore the concept of karma, the ebb and flow of energy in our lives.

So often we hear about good karma and bad karma, but in reality, karma is simply a reciprocal exchangewhat we give, we receive in kind. Through meditation, we connect more deeply with the present, increase our awareness of what is, and emerge from the silence with a sense of balance and a desire to make right, conscious choices in our lives. In this way, we begin to recognize our own undeniable role in creating the story of our lives and begin to align ourselves with those choices that are the most nurturing for ourselves and everyone around us. 1
  • Mindful Moment Take a moment to observe one choice before you today. Prior to making a decision, check in with your inner voice and ask yourself, Is this the most nourishing choice for me and everyone around me? If the answer does not feel right to you, then consider making another decision. If when you check in with yourself, your choice feels right in your heart, then proceed with abandon. Day 3 Confident Me "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams." Eleanor Roosevelt Mantra: Sat Chit Ananda. Existence, consciousness, bliss. The Spiritual Law of Least Effort tells us that we can do less and accomplish more, an idea that seems at odds with what many of us have been taught throughout our lives. In general, we hold the belief that success is the result of hard work, struggle, and sacrifice. As were learning through our time together, the universe has infinite organizing power and as conscious beings, we have r
