"The Secret of Attraction" Meditation

"The Secret of Attraction" Meditation

What is the secret of attraction?


The secret of attraction is..
Just be yourself. Just love yourself as you are.

Look at your positive and negative qualities. And say: "I love myself for being just like this."
If you can radiate simple unaffected humanity, you will be immensely attractive.

Love is not the opposite of hate. 
Love, has no opposites. 
Negativity is born in the gap where love has been excluded.  Gaps occur in places where we are afraid to see ourselves. 
All obstacles are created by ourselves through a belief in non-love. 
The solution is never at the level of the problem. The solution is always love, which is beyond our problems. 
To see love in the moment, we must clean the windows of perception. 
If we have our full attention in the moment, we will see only love. 
Love is spirit. Spirit is the Self. 
To receive love, we must give love. 
Love knows that we exist, and cares for our existence. 
To love, be lovable.

- Secret of Attraction meditation with Deepak Chopra

When I look at you, I see me. We all come from the same place, we have similar feelings at one point or the other - we are all so human, so same same but different. Don't be afraid to be you - see yourself, choose love over fear. Be yourself. Love is present. 

Love knows that we exist, and cares for our existence. 

These past few weeks, I've been having a new student show up consistently for my morning yoga class. As she first walked into the studio, I felt how shy she was and how awkward she felt being there. As we moved on to our yoga practice, I saw she was a bit uncomfortable in her own skin, and felt as though I can even hear the self-judgement, anxiety, and internal discourse going on within her. Throughout the practice, I would encourage everyone to reach for love and honor where they (mentally, physically, emotionally) are in their now, within their personal process. As I said these words of encouragement, I felt her slowly shedding and observing herself - I felt as though I was watching herself catch herself and see herself with honesty for the first time.

Toward the end of class, we indulged in a moment of mindfulness, as we specifically meditated on cultivating self-love and self-forgiveness. In those moments of meditation, I felt her rise and release. I saw she was crying, but I understood those tears were from letting go of the pain she had been holding on to, from allowing herself to be vulnerable, raw, and honest. She accepted herself - she remembered herself, herself that of spirit. And this point in her process, on her journey, was wild and so beautiful to witness. I could feel her rise and become lighter.. become softer. 

In those moments, I saw myself in her. I felt as though she was vicariously living through the soul of the Universe, experiencing a moment - a feeling, that we all long for, or have maybe experienced at one point. In her, I saw the world. Through her, I felt a split moment of enlightenment... of surrender, of letting go, of acceptance. of our rawest, truest form. Of love. 

She came back the next week, and her energy and aura were much different than the first time around. She looked like the woman I saw just the week before, but something was different. Her skin was glowing, her body language and posture much more graceful than I remembered. She was radiating simple, gentle beauty. from the inside out. She had uncovered the secret of attraction. 

She transformed, with the simple awareness and acceptance of love. The same love that is within us all. It is our truth, our greatest power. She gave me the opportunity not only of serving and sharing such a sacred time and space, but of reminding me the essence of my being. Through this realization, I was reminded that I must continue to seek within, and truly find the love and acceptance for myself to find peace. Love is always present. I am, you are the embodiment of love. This is the secret of attraction.

The secret of attraction is..
Just be yourself. Just love yourself as you are.

You are the sky, holding the whole Universe~

The light in me recognized and honors the light within you.
