About two years ago, I approached my father (Deepak Chopra) with a confession. I told him I was generally exhausted, over caffeinated and my sugar addiction was out of control. I realized I was overscheduled trying to balance my role as a wife, mom, and entrepreneur with Intent.com, my start-up social media company. I felt bloated and had a lot of body pain. I hadn’t been meditating or exercising much, and at night I was having trouble sleeping. My father looked shell shocked, and it took a few moments for him to transition from concerned father to Deepak Chopra, the person that thousands go to for health advice. Continue reading

There is increasing credible science and recent press extolling the personal and professional benefits of regular, short sessions of simple breathing meditation. Yet it’s not uncommon for very intelligent people to believe this just isn’t for them. You might be one of them. Does this resonate?
Meditate? Not for me. I’ll get lazy, lose my edge, fail to compete, and lose the game of success. Continue reading
Intent.com founder Mallika Chopra has been teaching people the power of meditation and living with intent for some time now. As a mom, businesswoman, and individual, she faces so many of the constraints many of us face in balancing ourselves with our lives, our dreams with our reality and our opportunities with what makes sense right now.
Dallas Brown at the Chopra Center recently sat down with Mallika to interview her about the journey to living with intent and her upcoming new book with the same title. We’re excited to share that with you here: Continue reading
Is my and my family’s future going to get any better?
We are all stewards of our own destinies.
In that, we shoulder both the responsibility and accountability for all our life choices.
Every thought, action, inaction, belief, word, deed, excuse, and intention: matters.
There is no simple or magic way to adopt these truths: yet adopt them you must.
In order to change your circumstances in life: you must first be willing to accept the fact that you and you alone co-create your reality.
Once you surrender to this foundational life principle: everything before you will come into focus.
You’ll see how your thoughts, beliefs and intentions played a crucial role in every outcome.
For every action is based upon an underlying thought: which in turn is based upon an intention.
If your intentions are misaligned: the resulting outcome mirrors that trajectory.
By course correcting the underlying intention of your every thought, action and deed: you align your Self and your will: with your desired outcome.
When all of these elements are working in concert with one another: positive results are inevitable.
Like attracts like: for all of life is energy: resonating at varying frequencies.
Seek to resonate at a frequency that ensures optimism, abundance, gratitude, humility and grace.
From this plateau, you are ever closer to your will: in alignment with the purity of your intentions: reflecting that which universal law delivers: like for like.
Trust that the more you surrender and align your intentions with the natural rhythms of nature and the Universe: the more abundance you will feel and achieve: in all aspects of your life: not simply in monetary matters.
For currency is but a form of energy: continually resonating with you: at your current level of belief and harmony or disharmony with it.
Believe you are worthy of more: and so shall it be.
