The Nature of Desire

Posted by Dee Harris on

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 1 - The Nature of Desire

“You are what your deep, driving desire is. As your desire is, so is your will. As your will is, so is your deed.”― Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

Mindful Moment

Welcome to our 21-Day Meditation Experience, Energy of Attraction – Manifesting Your Best Life. We are delighted to have you with us. Together we will explore and experience the forces of attraction to create a balanced life – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. 

Human desire is the essential energy of attraction. Our hopes, dreams, wishes, and intentions are the forces that impel our growth and forward motion in life. We will learn that desire is not only basic to everyday life, it is essential to our spiritual evolution as well. It is through desire that we create more love, joy, and vitality. In our meditations together we will experience the source of desire – our true inner self – and begin to desire from that silent awareness. This is the key to manifesting the life you want.

CENTERING THOUGHT

My life moves forward through desire.

SANSKRIT MANTRA

Eecha Shakti Namah
I honor the universal power of desire.

OPRAH:

Welcome friends to the Energy of Attraction.  The next 21 days is going to open up so many possibilities.  I’m literally tingling about them.  Deepak and I are grateful to have you join us on this journey.

As Deepak will show us the Energy of Attraction is about much more than getting the things you want.  It’s about aligning in order to get the things you want.  Aligning your deepest desires, the innate desires, that give your life meaning at the truest level with the source of all energy that keeps the planets aligned, the earth rotating and the sun rising…everyday.  Alignment is the key.  There is unlimited power in alignment.  Embrace it and you will discover a whole new way of being in the world.

What I know for sure is that we are all energy.  “We come from star stuff,” as Carl Sagan says.  We’re connected to the powerful, constant, universal force that is creation.  And every moment of every day, whether or not we’re conscious of it, we are sending out vibrations…vibrations like love, vibrations like fear, like anger which is also fear, and joy which is also love.

The energy we put out is always, no matter what, returned to us.  You don’t have to believe it.  It’s Universal Law.  And that law guides how we fulfill our lives and our dreams.  Just as it guides the planets.  I’ve seen it at work over and over again.  Like attracts like.  You don’t draw in what you want, you attract who you are.  Change your energy and you can change your entire experience in the world.  Change your intention and you change your path.

How do we tap into that powerful source of guidance?  How do we begin to understand how our deepest desires, our intentions create our thoughts, our words, our actions, and, ultimately, our experiences?  Well, the next 21 days is going to take us there.  So let’s start now.  So exciting as Deepak sheds new light on the nature of desire, and then we’re going to meditate.

DEEPAK:

Right this minute what do you want?  It seems like a simple question.  You might answer, “I don’t really want anything right this minute.”  But every cell in your body wants to survive and thrive, seeking the nourishment it requires.  Your heart wants to beat, your lungs to breathe, your blood to flow through your veins.  The circle of life is about desire.

In nature’s scheme there is enough abundance for every cell to survive and thrive.  And this is true on the personal level too.  Like your body you as an individual inherently strive to be nourished.  In order to thrive you naturally desire more of the good things that create fulfillment…security, vitality, success, love, joy and inner peace.

In this 21-Day Mediation Experience you will learn to connect with nature’s deepest source of nourishment and abundance.  On this journey you will practice the art of making desires come true by using your awareness to produce the results you want.

The circle of desire begins inside whenever you have a wish, dream, hope or intention.  There is an inner intention.  From this seed you want to bring something desirable to you.  Will it happen or will you fail to get the outcome you want?

The secret lies in knowing how to close the circle of desire so that your inner intention leads to an outer result.  In here and out there look like separate worlds.  But there’s a traditional wisdom in every culture that says inner and outer are connected.  A thought, if it is powerful enough, can create a change in outer circumstances.  Something you don’t want can go away.  Something you do want can come to you.

What closes the circle of desire, connecting inner and outer reality, is the energy of attraction.  This will be the focus of our meditations together.  Like every cell that attracts nourishment to itself, you’re always attracting nature’s abundance.  But if your awareness is constricted, if you have conflicting desires that cancel each other out, if your past conditioning keeps attracting negativity, you need to use the energy of attraction in a new and better way.

The energy of attraction is channeled through every and any intention.  The process isn’t mystical.  But there are layers of desire and attraction.  If you ask a waiter in a restaurant to bring you a glass of water, your inner intention becomes manifest.  This is something we all do everyday.

And you’ve probably experiences a deeper level of attraction as when you think of someone and, unexpectedly, they call on the phone.  The energy of attraction is built into your desires and at the deepest level where you create your most personal cherished desires you can achieve incredible results.

We will go deeper than wanting material things because our deepest desires are the most life supporting.  They give our lives meaning and, at the same time, they harness more of the energy of attraction.  This meditation experience provides the tools and understanding to benefit you physically, mentally and spiritually.

I hope you feel inspired.  Now let’s begin.  As we prepare to meditate together let’s take a moment to consider our centering thought, “My life moves forward through desire.  My life moves forward through desire.”  Now take a moment to 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 sound, “Eecha Shakti Namah.”  This mantra helps you connect with nature’s primal impulse of creative desire.  As you repeat the mantra feel yourself connecting to the universe’s power to create through desire.  Repeat the mantra silently to yourself, “Eecha Shakti Namah.”

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 turn your attention to silently repeating the mantra, “Eecha Shakti Namah.  Eecha Shakti Namah.  Eecha Shakti Namah.”

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. “Eecha Shakti Namah.  Eecha Shakti Namah.  Eecha Shakti Namah.”  Just mentally now, “Eecha Shakti Namah.  Eecha Shakti Namah.  Eecha Shakti Namah.  Eecha Shakti Namah.”

DEE:

Alignment.  My alignment has changed dramatically due to my journey with alcoholism.  It was that struggle that helped me to finally get aligned.  Before getting clean and sober I was lost; I had no purpose.  I felt I was just existing…a waste of space on the planet.

I couldn’t go a day without drinking, no matter how hard I tried and what method of the day I would enforce.  One glass of water with every glass of alcohol.  Wait until 4 PM before having my first drink.  Just drink at home.  Don’t drink at home.  Etcetera.  Etcetera.  Life was totally getting in the way of my drinking.  Drinking was all I could think about.

When I finally hit my bottom and reached out for help I was afforded the opportunity to learn about the disease of alcoholism.  OK.  Now it all makes sense.  Being the intellectual person I couldn’t, for the life of me, figure out why I couldn’t stop drinking.  Oh, I’m an alcoholic with the disease of alcoholism.

When my 28-days were over in rehab I headed to the rooms of AA where I learned how to live a life without alcohol.  I also learned what makes Dee tick and I learned I wasn’t on this journey alone.  I have been gifted so many like-minded people who have gone through what I have and are willing to help me on this new journey of recovery, asking nothing in return.

Today I get to do that too.  Today that is my purpose…to share my experience, strength and hope with those who enter my Dee Bubble.  Everything is perfect today.  I am in alignment.

I know now that my life and its journeys are not coincidental.  Whether it’s Universal Energy, a Higher Power, or God, my life is unfolding exactly the way it’s supposed to.  For me this new way of looking at life is so amazing and so much better than being that intellectual self…Dee being in control and “thinking” that whatever I wanted, if I wanted it badly enough, I could get it, “will” it.  Bullshit.  I couldn’t will away my alcoholism.

Today I turn my will and my life over to a god of my own understanding, a higher power that has my back, that I can trust to guide and protect me and teach me what I need to learn today.  Interactions with people and daily experiences I now look at with excitement and anticipation for the enlightenment they will bring me.

And I’m finding today that what I reap is what I sow.  If I choose to look at the glass half-full and remain positive, I receive positivity in my life.  If I can practice rigorous honesty with those who enter my Dee Bubble, I receive rigorous honesty.  If I give, I get way more and way better than I could have ever imagined.

So what do I want right now?  I simply want to be the best me that I can be and be OK with that and be OK with me.  I want to be mindful and respectful with, not just myself, but with everyone with whom I interact.  I want to remain grateful and humble for this life in recovery knowing, feeling, that I could not have done this on my own.  Only with the love of a Higher Power did I get to where I am today.  And with this mindset I receive all the security, vitality, success, love, joy and inner peace that I need.

Thank you for reading and wishing you all the best.

With much aloha, Dee Harris
