Are you ready to begin or renew your personal meditation habit with Deepak and Oprah’s FREE 21-Day meditation practice – Miraculous Relationships?
Day 1 centering thought: “Today I am open to the presence of miracles.”
If you have never tried meditating, or if you meditate and would like to add to your current practice, join us for Oprah and Deepak Chopra’s upcoming, FREE 21-Day Meditation Experience, Miraculous Relationships, which begins Monday, July 15. You can sign-up, here.
I have used Oprah and Deepak’s meditations in the past, and they are guided goodness and a refreshing way to calm your mind and comfort your soul. Don’t worry too much about if the topic is perfect for you or not, simply use each session to begin or reinforce your meditation habit.
Most of their meditations are 15 minutes in length – a small amount of time that can yield big results. There are thousands of studies showing the benefits of meditation. You do not have to meditate for long periods to begin receiving those benefits.
To enrich your life and create new levels of awareness, insight and joy sign-up. You can participate from anywhere!
Then join the free Wishful Thinking Works Meditation Facebook Group, which is designed to help you develop the meditation habit by:
It’s a virtual support group for your meditative journey!
The Wishful Thinking Works Meditation Facebook Group is open to everyone, it is listed as “closed” on FB, but that just means no one but members can see your posts. You have nothing to lose and so much gain.
Join us to find more peace in your heart and happiness in your life. You deserve this and more, and it is all FREE!
Many of you will soon be celebrating the Fourth of July with parties, picnics and pyrotechnics. Why not combine your patriotic passion with your personal triumphs – and celebrate them all!
Mid-year is the perfect time to celebrate YOU and your life by creating your very own “Ta Da List.”
The Wishful Thinking Works “Ta Da List” is much more fun than a “To Do” list, because it’s for all the things you’ve already accomplished this year – pure enjoyment with little effort!
My guess is you seldom take time to give yourself credit for all the wonderful things you have done or the challenges you have overcome. Make today your personal Independence Day by taking a moment to reflect on what makes you and your life worth celebrating as you list your accomplishments – big or small – on your personal “Ta Da” list. It’s instant gratification of a new kind and much healthier than ice cream or holiday snacks.
What have you accomplished this year that just six months ago seemed impossible or only a distant possibility? (Feel free to include anything you have ever accomplished – this is the time to toot your horn.)
What new trails have you blazed?
What have you found the strength to face?
New jobs? Degrees? Classes? Healthy practices begun? Pounds lost? (Yes, you can count the same ones over again!) Miles run? Promises kept? Chances taken? Letters written?
What teeny, tiny or wondrously huge steps have you taken in the direction of your dreams?
List any and all of the things that make you happy and proud to be you!
Most of us spend way more time thinking about what we haven’t done, than what we have done. It’s time to change all that and make 2019 your year of the have’s not the have not’s! Celebrating success builds confidence and noting what is right in our lives makes us happier and more resilient.
Don’t be shy – this is the time for aiming high and lighting up the sky. List everything you have done that matters to you, and then when you are watching “the rockets red glare and bombs bursting in air” congratulate yourself on your 2019 accomplishments thus far, and all the exciting ones that lay ahead. Let those bright lights and loud booms ignite a sense of personal pride in you.
And, when you finish your list, make sure to take a few minutes to offer up some gratitude for each and everything thing on it and all the folks who were part of your success. Gratitude is the fast track to happiness!

Today is “International Happiness Day,” so I am sharing Jack Canfield’s “How to Change Your Mood in 60 Seconds” video to make sure we are as happy as we can be today. (You may remember Jack as the co-author of the “Chicken Soup” series of books. He’s written many more since then and is an international motivational speaker, as well.)
I have posted many similar tips here at Wishful Thinking Works, and agree with Jack’s ideas and outlook. Why not jump on the happy train today by grabbing a cup of coffee or tea while you relax and watch his 9:12 minute video?
Let me know your thoughts and what works for you when you are trying to shift gears or to ramp up your mood. Try Jack’s tips, and comment below. Everyone learns when we share!
