Meditation Reflection

On August 5, 2013, people around the world including myself joined Oprah & Deepak for a 21-day meditation journey. The 21-day challenge was geared towards Miraculous Relationships. This is my second 21-day challenge that I have participated in with the duo. The first encounter, I experienced was interesting because I did not know what to expect. In the beginning, when I decided to embark on this journey I was clueless. My mind would wonder off and I could not focus because of activity around me. During the process nothing was clear so I did not gain much from my first encounter.


When I received the email months ago about the upcoming challenge I wanted to see if I could take on the challenge for its entirety. In addition, I wanted to see how far I have come on my own and if I would have a different outcome than my previous encounter. I was curious to see if I had finally cleared out the distractions in my mind.

The Shift



Several weeks ago I had the opportunity to watch “The Shift” by Wayne Dyer at The Red Shoes. The Red Shoes is a center for Personal and Spiritual Growth in the Baton Rouge area. I stumbled upon The Red Shoes about two years ago when I first began my journey with meditation and spiritual growth. Every so often, I attend their weekly class meditation. The experience has been very rewarding in helping me connect to my inner self. The center is a non-profit organization that offers a variety of weekly classes from yoga & meditation, creative arts, mind-body wellness, spirituality workshops, book & film studies, and sacred circles.  Visit www.theredshoes.org for more information.
