day 21:

Inner Tuning: OM – the soundless sound, the sound of eternity, the music of existence. I repeat this sacred sound today, breathing it in and out, whenever I remember. At night, as I move into sleep I continue to silently chant the mantra so that it will accompany me throughout the night, and that it will be with me in the morning, when I awake.
OM
Sarva Mangala Mangalyei
Shive Sarvartha Sadhike
Sharanye Triambake
Gauri Narayani Namostute

May she whose touch brings ecstasy, she who activates the masculine itself, who opens the spiritual eye of wisdom, who is worshipped and revered by all the highest realized sages, bless one and always serve one’s highest.

Day 18

Day 13:Life on earth is a ‘leela’ – a divine play – sometimes a comedy, sometimes a drama, always a mystery. Our earthly relationships serve to reflect the divine connection we enjoy with the great spirit that guides and shines on us all: The Beloved. Seeing this, we can fully embrace our starring role in the movie of human experience.

KAYOTIC emoticon a daily meditation Fantastic!!!

I had some days off but I finished today day 22. I'm happy with myself for keeping the meditation, I think it is so far the best meditation I've been in. It also help increase the length of the silence meditation, which at the beginning felt long compare with Becoming Fearless, but today it felt ok. I think I have deepen my meditation.

Hope everyone had a great experience.

Now May 14 with Deva Premal and her beautiful chanting mantras... See you there!

TURBO-GIRL you can sign-up but the 1-11 days are already off, only day 12 and on, and tomorrow will be day 13 and on. They just keep the sessions for 5 days.They sell the sessions for $39.99 or so...even if you start today or tomorrow it is worth the experience, every session is kind of independent...

Don't worry though there is another Meditation Challenge coming up on May 14 with Deva Premal "the Spirit of Mantra", here the link to sign-up. It is also free and it is a lovely way to meditate with music

Coming to this late...if I sign up now, will the Chopra website still let me start from the beginning? (i.e. are all of the meditations so far still available on the site, or just 1 at a time for 24 hours and then taken down?)

I would love to do this if I can start now, even though I'll be starting later than everyone else.

Finding your Flow has been so far (day 10 for me) so interesting. It is longer than other challenges and the thoughts expressed in the talking section are meaningful.

I hope you all are enjoying the Challenge as well. Have a nice Sunday!

great 5 days so far from the challenge Finding your Flow, also I liked on Becoming Fearless. I did not follow all, but I'm trying to finish the last ones.

I agreed with FITADMIN83 it would be nice if they were all available until the very end of the challenge, but at least five days is better than nothing

I did the first day challenge today in the oddest place.

I had almost an hour before my son's school released for the day, and the rain was starting. I knew the parents would be showing up and pushing for spots to pick up their kids. I took the fact I still had an hour, and found a parking spot at the school. I turned off the car except for the radio and pumped the mp3 in the car as the rain started. I sat there and meditated right in the car.

It was very nice, and refreshing!

That is great, Artistcat! If mornings don't work, and evenings do, then you've found your niche. emoticon

That's great ARTISTCAT, to find the best time is somehow difficult and it is different for everyone. Enjoy this "me" time with Meditation! emoticon

I'm on a 7-day meditation streak! Found out that the mornings are too unpredictable to consistently meditate. Usually I go to sleep 15-30 min before my partner comes to bed. So I'm using that time to meditate.

it takes 21 day to make a new routine, sticking to it is the difficult part. First thing in the morning, making a commitment with yourself, 10-15 min look impossible to take from our busy lives but if you think that it is a "me-time" it will pay-off the rest of the day ...

Artist cat, I've found if I make the habit of meditating in the morning (first thing or almost first thing) I am more successful. I try to meditate daily, but am not perfect! Still I'd say most weeks now, I'm able to meditate 5-6 days. I think you have to just make it part of your routine, like brushing your teeth or putting your shoes on! I also try not to stress about the time....if I can do the whole meditation, great, if I'm having technical issues and only get half (or less)then I'll take that too. Some days the time just gets away from me, but it's a short period of time, so totally doable, if you make it a priority. And maybe work in some kind of small reward for finishing the month. It should be rewarding and make you more peaceful, not stress you out, so think of it that way.

I'm in! Did those before but have never been able to finish the challenge. It goes like this:
Week 1: I log in everyday, meditate, read the emails and answer the journal questions
Week 2: I log in every other day, meditate and read the emails
Week 3: I'm out :-(
I just can't seem to find a time of day to regularly meditate. How do you guys do it?
