As many of you know, I do the 21-day Meditation Experience by Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey. Every time, because I gain so much insight from it.
This time I have decided to share with you part of my journal and a video I made for the Mantras used during the Meditation.
For more information re. the Experience, please see Chopra Meditation : it’s free, soothing and healing.
I have also created a video with the Mantras used during the Meditation. It is true that as a practising Nichiren Buddhist I use the Nam Myoho Renge Kyo ‘mantra’ to chant, but I have discovered that to quieten the mind and during my placement as a Buddhist Chaplain (together with Buddhists from other denominations) using various mantras can help to focus and for peace of mind.
To make the video, I used PowerPoint to create picture/slides of the mantras. Then, I also printed the slides as pictures, laminated them and I used them in my journal (as you can see from one of the pictures above). All of this is not a pointless exercise! Creativity helps focusing, aids the healing process. We move from the Victim role to the Creator/Trickster role in order to take the change that happens within us, in the world outside.

Enjoy the video ♥
