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.
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.
My intention holds the key to fulfillment.
My unbounded awareness holds my pure intention.
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.
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”.
So we’re going to listen in now as Deepak guides us toward that expanded awareness and then we’ll meditate.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Whenever you find yourself distracted by thoughts, noises, or physical sensations, simply return your attention to silently repeating the mantra, Chit Sankalpa. Chit Sankalpa. Chit Sankalpa.”
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. “Chit Sankalpa. Chit Sankalpa. Chit Sankalpa.” Just mentally, “Chit Sankalpa. Chit Sankalpa. Chit Sankalpa.”
