A Weekend With Oprah

October 28th, 2014

The entire weekend was very powerful. Imagine being in an arena with 7000+ women and men (yes there were some men!), who took the day to reflect and discover how to live a fuller, more meaningful life!

Oprah had 4 amazing speakers who shared their perspective and journey to empower us to find our own path. These speakers included Deepak Chopra, Elizabeth Gilbert, Rob Bell, and Iyanla Vanzant.

 

I’ve always aspired to make the world a happier, healthier place for all its inhabitants. Throughout the weekend, I was able to rediscover these aspirations and clearly see how my purpose and passion could work in synergy towards something that contributes to the world in a positive way. Through my brand, 21 Drops, I am able to pursue my passion of using pure plant extracts for their healing properties, and by sourcing high quality essential oils from sustainable farms that contribute to this dream. I am so grateful I am able to share this wonderful healing gift with the rest of the world!

 

Another one of my favorite moments was when the amazing Elizabeth Gilbert revealed that most stories around the world are based on the Hero’s Journey. She explained that the hero of the story begins an ordinary life, then finds him/herself called to an adventure, but refuses the inner calling for fear of change. Only when the character masters some level of self awareness, does the story end.

 

I believe the Hero’s Journey is what our lives are all about. We are constantly put to the test to grow and expand our awareness, so that we don’t have to come back to learn the same lessons over and over again!

 

Another great lesson, and the one I want to leave you with, comes from Rob Bell. He brought awareness to the overwhelming statistic of our universe in correlation to us as human beings to be alive on this planet.  He reflects on how lucky we are to grace this beautiful planet with multi-sensory experiences and how it’s truly a miracle!

 

Remember this simple fact and begin to focus less on the trivial problems. Make it a practice to live each day in gratitude and appreciation.

 

Namaste!
