These are amazing notes – not transcripts –  from Deepak and Oprah’s meditation challenge, Getting Unstuck, Creating a Limitless Life, written by DoinTheGratefulDance .  I have enjoyed several of the meditation series Oprah and Deepak Chopra have shared.  I am not affiliated with them – just a grateful listener too and wanted to share these wonderful notes.    I couldn’t have done a better job!  Thanks for sharing these notes!

Day 20 – “Becoming the Ideal Co-Creator”
“The closer you come to knowing that you alone create the world of your experience, the more vital it becomes for you to discover just who is doing the creating.” – Eric Micha’el Leventhal

 

Today’s meditation is about growing into a more complete and fulfilled self which requires self-awareness of our deepest creativity. We are not spectators in an objective world, we shape our experiential reality through our creative self – not only what we experience but how we experience life.   Today’s meditation teaches us how to make a creative contribution through the expanded and heightened awareness of mediation.

“I participate to the fullest in creating my personal reality”

 

Sanskrit Mantra:  

“Om Brahma Namah” (sounds like Ohm Brah-mah Nah-mah )
“I invoke the creativity of the cosmos in my life”

Oprah says….

Her mantra, credo, what she believes with every fiber of her existence is that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction – what goes out comes back – always.  What goes up comes down – always. That is a way that we create everything in our lives.  Nothing happens out of order or by accident.  Nothing. We create our lives with our every intention, thought, word and action.  The more aware we become that we co-create everything in our lives with the energy of the universe, the more our creativity heightens.  We co-create our environment, friendships, careers and love relationships.  I create me!   She says that co-creation is the calling of the universe and so it is our calling as well.  Our light comes from the same creative force that has made every living thing – she calls it “star stuff”.  We only need to be aware of and in touch with our deepest self.

She asks, “What will I do with the light that is me?”.

Deepak says….

When asked about what we did today, we usually answer with things we did externally – at work, school or in our family but viewed from the inside out, every day each of us is building a self, fulfilling our needs and discovering who we are and that calls for our highest creativity.  Whatever our level of awareness is, these inner events are happening and emerging in our lives every day – we change and have new needs and have either greater or less self-awareness.  It’s going to happen no matter what, however, we can choose to magnify and accelerate the process or resist and slow it down.

Life isn’t simply making demands – we co-create every situation in our lives and our personal reality depends on how aware we are of being the co-creator of our life.   We are given the raw materials and must shape it the way we want it or someone else will do it for us – or things will occur by random chance.

We can devote our attention to gaining a bigger car, more money, a nicer house, etc, but this isn’t evolutionary when viewed from our true self.  The more we are aware, the more contribution, coming from our true self, we will make.   We will be in touch with the part of ourselves that feels connected to true love, beauty, truth and evolution.  Our true self wants our life to be purposeful and have more meaning and the most creative life will happen when we build a life that matches our true self.

In a relationship, when we choose a partner we form a bond at the spirit level.  If we choose someone who wants to travel the path of spiritual unfoldment with us, we become ideal co-creators, both evolving to a higher personal reality through mutual loving support, sympathizing with challenges, fulfilling each other’s needs through a higher inner vision.   It’s possible to live the highest kind of creative life together but it must begin by relating to ourselves personally with the same loving respect.

Repeat to myself,
“I participate to the fullest in creating my personal reality
I participate to the fullest in creating my personal reality”

Listen to some relaxing music, breathe slowly and deeply,  become more and more relaxed, and meditate for about 10 minutes using the Sanskrit mantra –

“Om Brahma Namah” (sounds like Ohm Brah-mah Nah-mah )
“I invoke the creativity of the cosmos in my life”

Deepak says the mantra “engages your true self with the creative power of the universe.  As you repeat the mantra, feel your energy attune to the creative energy of the cosmos. ”

“Om Brahma Namah
Om Brahma Namah
Om Brahma Namah”

Continue meditating  for about 10 minutes and then release the mantra.  Concentrate on the centering thought:   being fulfilled and being who you want to be and repeating:

“I participate to the fullest in creating my personal reality
I participate to the fullest in creating my personal reality”

Reflections on Day 20-  write about it…

  • When others want to be be our creative partner, many possibilities spontaneously appear.  Who currently enjoys working and relating with me?  Write about why I think this is so (i.e. do we agree most of the time? We’re equals and don’t try to control the other? We enjoy working and finding solutions together?)
  • About that same person, and considering how well we work and relate to each other, how can use these same positive qualities in other relationships where that does not presently happen?  How can I use this in other relationships at work and personally?
  • Who are a couple of other people with whom I might co-create?  What are some positives they could bring that I’d enjoy and what could I contribute as well that would bring out the best in both of us? Initiate a collaboration by communicating these thoughts with that other person.
