Before going into photos and ponderings, I want to mention the Oprah & Deepak 21-Day Meditation Challenge, Miraculous Relationships. Given we are about Treasuring our Lives I think you might want to check it out if you have not already been aware of this program. Today is Day 7. Recording and Messages are available for free for five days from the time they are posted, so there is still time to register and experience most of the series at no charge.
The welcome statement states, “We are honored you are joining us on this journey to the heart of true love. You will discover the wonder that exists within and then watch all of your relationships unfold effortlessly, easily and miraculously.”
The first part of the series is devoted to our loving ourselves. On Day 5, Deepak Chopra speaks of self-image and recognizing our true value.
“With increased awareness of self becomes conscious of how we talk to ourselves… choosing words that are enlightening and uplifting. If we falter we forgive ourselves fully.” To register, click on Miraculous Relationships.
So much of the Day 5 meditation and messages, as well as the others fit in with were I’m headed in my own personal search and I suspect, quite possibly, that of you too.
Today’s Featured Photo –
A “Seemings” collage of photos that caught my attention as I was searching for photos for this issue. As several cropped up, I decided to “tear” pieces out (with Photoshop Elements) and assemble them into a collage for coursework for Landmark Worldwide’s Wisdom Unlimited Course in which I am a currently a reviewer.
In the past I did these collages with magazine photos that attracted me. The “seemings” are what we think the resulting collage is telling us about how we view something/s in our lives.
After the Announcements below, I will share a bit of what I say the image is showing me about my thoughts on my life. First, I invite you to be with the imagery and reflect on what you experience when looking at the picture. At the end, I will also give you a link to a page that shows the original, full photos, before selecting out segments.
Self-Reflecting Queries –
As you look at Today’s photo, is there a feeling, or feelings, relating to your own life?
Does anything come up for you in terms of your relationship with yourself and/or others?
If so, be with this for a few minutes and take it in, perhaps write down fragments of what you are seeing or experiencing.
Relationship Tip –
One of the ways you can start appreciating yourself is to use your camera and play with self-portraits. See “Using the iPhone Camera … [as] a Way of Getting Comfortable with Oneself.” Click on Self-Photos.
I also write, briefly, there that using the camera is also a way you can express love to, and receive it from, your partner or another person.
As always, have fun, and please share in the COMMENTS below your experiences with what comes up for you with these questions and your resultant actions.
