This month, we will be diving into “The Law of Pure Potentiality” from Deepak Chopra’s book The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success I introduced to you last month.
The Law of Pure Potentiality is about understanding our true self or spiritual essence. We practice the Law of Pure Potentiality by quieting our minds and being present either through meditation or breath awareness. We have a deeper connection with our spirit when we let go of judgments of people, places, or things—especially ourselves.
Spending time in nature is another way we can awaken our spiritual essence. Connecting with nature’s intelligence awakens us to the Divine presence that is everywhere and that shines through all of our eyes. Each day, take time to be in nature—whether you take a walk around the block, on the beach, through a forest, or in a city park.
It’s also important to take time to just be—whether it is in a relaxing bath, gazing at a sunset, or relaxing on your couch. No TV, no books— simply take time to be silent each day. This will allow you to connect with your beautiful spirit, which is loving, kind, compassionate, and light hearted. That is what the Law of Pure Potentiality is all about.
Watch this video, and I will explain this a little more. See you there!

P.S. I have also included a video for us to do five minutes of meditation together daily! Through this simple and easy meditation, we are able to tap into the space of our Pure Potentiality. Enjoy!
